“Solid”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Tired from a long day of sight-seeing? Want to see what DC is all about? Make a reservation for DC Coast and see the power hungry of 14th street at work and at play. The bar is solid with signature cocktails, homemade bitters and cherries for that perfect Manhattan! Then there is the food - choose to stay by the bar for some happy hour deals or have dinner - get a seat upstairs by the window! The food and the drinks are solid and I've never had a bad meal here! The best - chilled vodka gimlets with caviar! That's a meal!

“On my top five list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Whenever I have a special event dinner (birthdays, graduation, friends in town) I am always thinking of DC Coast. The restaurant always has the three top things I look for in a successful restaurant...food, service and a certain level of high energy. DC Coast always rises to the occassion on all three categories.

“Great evening, but at a price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

DC Coast is a solid place that you can count on to have a great business meal. The atmosphere gives you an opportunity for conversation and the menu is very creative and special. Staff is well trained and pays close attention to your needs.

Great service and well prepared food. Martini was great and the seafood was delicious. Loved the experience. Make sure to get the Capitelli and Cheese. Best Mac and cheese I ever had.

“Good seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

Went here with colleagues for an early dinner. Pretty relaxed atmosphere for a place with upscale interior design. Crab cakes were decent, but not delivering any sort of a "wow!" factor tastewise. Using the pulled leaves of Brussels sprouts for the bed upon which the crab cakes were served was an inspired use of Brussels sprouts that worked very well - THAT had a wow! factor!
