Coastal Flats and her sister restaurant, Carlyle (in Shirlington), are a consistent and delightful provider of both comfort foods and high-end gourmet master pieces worthy of much higher price tags.
Coastal Flats' offerings routinely trump more expensive locales. Their Drunken Ribeye rivals any steak by Ruth's Chris or Morton's.
Service is thoughtful and efficient, and the atmosphere is usually lively. Prices aren't unreasonable either.
Always worthy of a stop while in northern VA.
