“A happening place!”
Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

We had a wonderful dinner on Friday evening. The restaurant was full of energy and the service was excellent! Because of unavailability they significantly upgraded our wine selection at no extra cost... Nice touch! I had a lovely chowder to start and a Yukon Arctic Char that was absolutely perfect! We added the brussel sprouts as a side dish which were delicious. My wife & daughter raved about the upside down cheesecake that they shared. Definitely a restaurant not to miss when visiting Vancouver !

“Unbeatable seafood”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

We ate here for the first time as area locals (a 40 minute drive away). Since navigating the city has its challenges, we were fortunate to be staying overnight at a nearby hotel. The concierge made our reservation. The first table we were offered was by the kitchen, but on request we were seated at a very nice table at a railing overlooking the bar (people also eat at the bar, which displays some of the fresh seafood).
The service was friendly and efficient.
The seafood platter was an excellent introduction to several of the menu offerings.
Having been spoiled with appys at the hote before dinner, we had only the main course and a nice bottle of wine.
It was just what we wanted.

“Excellent crab cake, fish and salads, patio well served.”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Very good food all around and astoundingly quick. Host wasn't paying attention when we arrived though observed improved service thereafter. Patio ambiance warm -plenty of heat and service was cordial though not that informative ( viz vi knowing difference b/w ling cod and Atlantic cod.). Without a doubt the cleanest restrooms anywhere ... And yes this DOES count! Tables rickety on patio to the point of almost loosing your drink.

“Tired of the Sablefish”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

The first time I came to Coast, I loved the sablefish. Each subsequent visit, however, has been a bit of a disappointment in this regard. I haven't tried the other fish, but I'm off the sablefish now.
