Great food every time I visit the restaurant. It's a wonderful place to take a date or go with the family. The food was very delicious and fresh. Our waiter was very informative of the menu and had great service, definitely coming back.

I try to eat here at least once when I'm in Fairfax visiting my family for the holidays. The service, in my opinion, is exceptional. The whole staff really does work as a team and often they seem to anticipate your next request even before you do. The food is consistent and very good. My only real complaint is the... More

After a long day of Christmas shopping we stopped here for dinner. There was a wait for a table so we decided to eat at the bar. We are glad we made that decision-the bartender Tyler was awesome! We had the deviled egg and featured oyster appetizer (that he recommended) and they were great. Shrimp and grits for dinner was... More

I've eaten there on numerous occations and have never had a bad meal. No question this is the best resaurant I've been to in No. VA. It's very busy at peak eating hours. I recommend going during non-peak hours or use call a head schduling.

Had lunch there. Ordered the swordfish. It was great. Very fresh and had a great sauce. Very cool atmosphere. Price is fair. Waited only a few minutes to be seated. We always had someone checking on us. Very good service. Enjoyed it!!!

The drinks are good and the food is good but the wait is often too long. Most of the staff is very good, especially the manager (Donna). Try the Calamari and seafood - excellent.

The perfect combination of great food, good prices and fantastic servers! The food is well prepared and the entres are well composed--main element, sides and sauces. All employees--especially the servers are well trainned---friendly, knowledgeable, pleasant and efficient. Prices are reasonable. This is a great "date place"---movie and a pleasaant meal.

Ok...I have been to Coastal over a 100 times and always highly satisfied! However, I feel things are changing. First off, got the bread bowl and it was definitely old, starting to dry up, the little donut was barely warm and starting to toughen up. Got the 2 noodle shrimp salad, shrimp were definitely smaller, less salad. Tasted fine, but... More

I have always had a romantic crush on the Great American Restaurants chain. The restaurants are smooth, dressed nice, and know how to make a girl feel good by the end of the night :0) Coastal Flats has a fun and youthful vibe and I don’t mean youthful in the chronological age kind of way. You’ll love the bright and... More
