Amazing!

Atmosphere: crowded and noisy but we were expecting it and we are hispanics which means we are noisy by nature. Food: oh the sushi. A big round of applause to the chef. Our favorites were the Po' Boy and the Firedracker rolls. Price: very affordable Conclusion: loved it! Will come back for more.

I have been to Coast on 2 other occasions, This was the best so far. our server was friendly and attentive. The sushi is some of the BEST I have ever had. We brought 3 bottles of wine for 4 of us, We did "camp" at the table a while, the Waiter did not mind. We had several of the... More

The atmosphere is very nice with a trendy feel. The sushi bar is the centerpiece of this establishment with 5-6 chefs furiously preparing the entrees. The service was pleasant and fast, HOWEVER......BEWARE THIS IS A BYOB establishment. Should have had the foresight to investigate a little before going, but unless you have a bottle of wine in your pocket do... More

It's a shame i can only give this 4 stars because my husband and i had been dreaming about white dragon for three years. It was exactly as we remembered (or maybe better :) but the service was kind of awful. Server brought us an ice bucket for wine with no water, could not explain the dishes, approached the table...

We have loved Coast Sushi for many years. It never disappoints. The sushi is always made from the freshest, most delicious fish! Their creativity in creating specialty rolls is admirable. One of our favorites is the Dragon Roll. I have never had any fish there that I did not love. And, being able to bring our own wine or beer... More

Very noisy. 30-35 age crowd. Waited 20 minutes to be seated. Waited long time for order to be taken. Waited long time for food to arrive. Sushi good. Teriyaki salmon good. Tamarind duck good but entrees smothered in overly-sweet sauce. Waited long time to order dessert. Place had cleared out but still inattentive service. Sherbet servings were big but far... More

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
