A lively, busy place with a playful, but upscale ambience, the food here was flavorful, tastefully unique, and delightful. We had a 7pm reservation and got right in. Service was prompt, the menu was diverse and satisfying. We ordered a lot for a great price: 3 appetizers, 2 soups, 4 entrees all = about $85. Would love to go again... More

I have been a regular here for 10 years. I've tried many other sushi restaurants in the city but I always come back to Coast. The fish is consistently and I mean CONSISTENTLY fresh and amazing. The jalepeno miso soup is a great touch in the winter. Make sure and order fesh wasabi as it definitely clears the sinuses. :)... More

This is always a fun place to come with a group of friends and drink a lot. You will like the food and have a good time. That said, this place is too expensive. The special maki rolls are large and impossible to eat (as well as expensive). A maki roll should not approach $20...keep it simple guys. Also, delivery... More

A friend of my cousin made the reservation and I was so excited, as I love sushi. This place is great; BYOB, awesome atmosphere, and can see why this place is so busy all the time! Service was great. No complaints here. I hope to go back when I visit again.

I used to love Coast Sushi and have been eating in and ordering delivery for years but it has become awful The b.y.o.b. policy attracts loud, large, groups of rowdy people. Between them, the wait staff who rush you through, and the fact that the food isn't as consistently as perfect as it always had been; I just can't see... More

We have eaten here weekly since the first week it opened, it used to be small & empty, we used to worry it wouldn't make it. Now years later it has thrived, expanded in size & is the busiest sushi restaurant in the area. It had retained its quality and we remained customers, I even had a couple of my... More

Coast Sushi has a great exterior appearance for the neighborhood and the interior is nicely done. It does always seem to be crowded, though, and we found that even with reservations we had to wait to be seated. There is no doubt that many in the neighborhood walk to Coast, as it is a trendy and yuppified area. Parking is... More

You can always get good sushi and good service here. Due to it's popularity, I always feel a little bit rushed to get the table turned, but maybe I'm just getting old...

Being from Milwaukee, we travel to Chicago regularly, and we have dinner at Coast Every time. The rolls are incredible and I encourage you to order some of the specials. The fatty salmon is to die for and all of the special rolls are mouth watering. This restaurant is BYOB with no corking fee! And believe it or not the... More

Some sushi can be pretty pricey in the city, but this place is worth the money. It's a BYOB, and actually the location is now in Evanston. Definitely worth the trip though, food is outstanding.
