“Not your average mall food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

Coastal flats never fails. It has superior food for a mall reataurant. When I say superior, I mean super fresh seafood and primo quality meats. This place is great all around.
Service is great. Its always packed weekdays weekends....no matter.
This place will see me again.

“We had an enjoyable dining experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

This is a seafood restaurant,but we had seafood, steak, salad, and ribs. My entree was the crab cake with a 9 oz filet. The crab cake was almost entirely lump crab...no filler. The filet was cooked perfectly. Masked potatoes are included, but I added a $3.00 side of steamed spinach, very reasonable. The service was exceptional, split checks were fine. An assortment of hot fresh bread is included and the variety was impressive. The waiter freshened up the bread basket throughout the evening, even asking what bread we preferred, bringing more of it. You can call the restaurant beforehand and be placed on the waitlist in order to avoid a long wait if crowded.

“Yummy Hickory Grilled Salmon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

The mustard sauce for my salmon was really wonderful. I popped in for lunch and this
unexpected gourmet touch was lovely. The accompanying mashed cauliflower was
refreshing, given the overload of mashed potatoes over the holidays. My friend's filet
was perfectly cooked and accompanied by delicious mushrooms in brown sauce.
Good job!

“Atmosphere, food, service are all great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

This month I have been here twice for business lunch and dinner. The waitstaff is nice and accommodating. The place is located in tysons corner mall. The surroundings are nice, the decor is nice. I always eat the wood fried filet and it is the best. Medium rare makes the best taste. I have ordered this many times and have never been disappointed. The only thing is the cost. It is a little expensive even for Tyson's corner. But on a business trip price does not apply.

“Retro Florida dining with Latin overtones”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

I'm not a big seafood fan but I really enjoyed the pecan encrusted trout. The portion was huge and came with an exceptionally tasty citrus sauce coucous with almonds. There are a lot of shellfish on the varied menu - plenty of shrimp, crab, and lobster dishes. Everything was very fresh: the seafood, bread basket offerings, salad with goat cheese. The atmosphere was fun - I got a kick out of my tropical drink that came with a stick of sugar cane which you chew as you drink; attractive surroundings with retro murals on the walls.
