If you are looking for classical romantic evening, Coast Restaurant is not for you. Although my husband and I after 7 years of "honeymooning" definitely will call it romantic dinner for us, as we like vibrant, crazy, original, but always to our quality expectations food places. It is hard to be perfect all the time and those rare negative reviews I have seen here sound strange to me. If you give atmosphere in this place around 3 stars, it simply means this is not your place! And it cannot be everything! I like the fact that Coast concentrates on its uniqueness rather then trying to be perfect for everyone. It is PERFECT as COAST RESTAURANT where private preserved in loud social. The food many times experimental but successful: Asian/European/uniquely East Coast taste :) If you feel better with matching memory expectations, go to Italian or French... Even when they experiment they still in their boarders of tradition.
