Description: Coast is where seafood –fresh British Columbia seafood – dazzles! The freshest fish, succulent shellfish and the most colossal seafood towers are here, with the rarest, perfectly prepared oysters nestled in beds of ice, waiting for you. This is BC’s best seafood, and offers true west-coast dining, flashy and fun for every mood and every occasion.

$150 for two (including tax and tip) with no wine and no dessert/coffee. Yes, the seafood is good - fish is fresh and perfectly prepared ... but we had equally good seafood at much less expensive reaturants in town. This is a place to see and be seen; if you're interested in that sort of scene, you'll be pleased. Otherwise, there are better options with views of the mountains or the water. I would not return.

Booked this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend and not sorry I did. Reservations can be made online and were followed up by a return phone call. Very simple process.
It was a very busy Friday night, tables are close together " European style". Staff were very knowledgable about their menu and wines. Wine list is extensive.
But the food is what sells this place...fresh well prepared seafood. Amazing crab cake!
We were given a complimentary dessert because of the birthday celebration. I can say without a doubt it was the best cheesecake I have ever eaten...Red Velvet!
Nice touch was the next day follow up phone call to see how we enjoyed the evening at Coast.
Looking forward to my next visit.

The staff were wonderful, the atmosphere pretty cool, although the place seemed to be full, we had a quiet table, not noisy like some have suggested.
The seafood was fresh and interesting, but definitely on the pricey side.
A thing that some people don't care about, but is important to me, and no matter how good the food is, will always be the decider between 4 and 5 stars, these guys did really well. I want to be asked if I want another drink just before I'm finished my current one, so that it arrives at the right time. These guys did that absolutely perfectly!
