I'm a little surprised by some of the feedback regarding Coast as our experience seems to have been so very different. My husband and I went to Coast for his birthday on a busy Saturday night and had a thoroughly wonderful experience.
Upon arrival, we were asked if we would like to be seated at our table straight way or whether we would like to have a drink on the roof top terrace first. We decided to have a drink on the terrace first and were not disappointed. The view of Darling Harbour was lovely and the service was exemplary.
After about half an hour, we decided to go back inside to our table and were looked after very well by one of the waitresses. She was attentive and friendly but not over the top with checking on us every two seconds. As we had ordered a starter on the terrace, we ordered mains straight away: barramundi and scotch fillet. Both meals were delectable. The scotch fillet was cooked exactly as my husband requested and my barramundi was gorgeous. We both also had dessert and, whilst I'm starting to run out of adjectives to describe the food, they were both scrumptious ... just the right amount of richness without being overly sickening. They even wrote on my husband's dessert plate a "Happy Birthday" in chocolate ... what a lovely touch. Coffees and all beverages were served timely as well.
We would absolutely dine there again. As mentioned we found the service to be at a perfect level ... just the right amount of attention and the food was fabulous. A lot of reviews seem to slam the decor but I thought it was appropriate for the type of restaurant it is. Most modern restaurants are quite open plan and the lighting was not too bright or too dark; just right for a nice atmosphere. We have already recommended Coast to a number of people and will continue to do so.
