I had a free day and a half in Seattle and was trying to walk and see as much as possible. Took a chance from Trip Advisor and was so glad I did. First this was the best salad ever...white vinaigrette, oysters etc. People great! This is a casual, neighborhood place with excellent food and drinks. A vacation just being... More

Not bad. Good service and good food. We all enjoyed our meals but there weren't anything overly amazing. The kids were happy.

My Japanese wife really wanted to eat fish tonight, so we decided on the Coastal Kitchen after reading the reviews. Although the establishment's name lends it to be a seafood place, it has one salmon dish, one grilled or pan fried fish dish and one fish & chips dish, along with oysters and come clams dishes. They were pushing pork... More

Coastal kitchen was recommended by our hotelier for fresh seafood on Capitol hill and it was disappointing. We were in town during copper river salmon season so we were excited to see that offered on the menu and reasonably priced under $30. But it was a dry piece of fish barely 4x4 inches, very salty, on a bed of also... More

The Coastal Kitchen in Capitol Hill part of Seattle, was featuring the coast of Corsica for the month of April. We had the featured Corsican specials and all were delicious; baked trout, polenta and harcort vert as well as bean soup (yummy broth), Ahi tuna with spicy aoli sauce, and fresh oysters. The waitress was attentive and knowledgeable suggesting the... More

We were staying in a B & B within walking distance of this excellent neighborhood restaurant. I had the cod fish/chips....and the fish was the best I have ever eaten, bar none. That really surprised me. My wife had a fish platter and also reported excellence. Topped off with an "Old Bushmill, with a splash", and my entire meal was... More

Coastal Kitchen is about 5 blocks from my house and my husband and I have been going there at least twice month for 5 years. In the last year or two it underwent a renovation shifting focus from a more family oriented restaurant into a more sophisticated oyster bar but it still operates as both. It has a rotating menu...

So the Sunday brunch crowd, the decor, the open kitchen, the menu, the great service -- all begged me to love the place -- and I wanted to! But the food was a bit of a letdown. Blueberry pancake was dry and blueberries hadn't "popped". Spicy Hash browns weren't that spicy and just so so. Main course: crab cakes topped... More

It seems this place is the choice for many to have breakfast, but we had dinner here as we started off our West Coast road trip. Being from the Midwest, we always enjoy the fresh seafood when on vacation and the Coastal Kitchen did not disappoint. My wife and I shared a bowl of the clam chowder which was smooth... More

Try the Zuppa di Maiori--clams, mussels, calamari and cod in tomato broth laced with anise--very nice
