Food very good. The staff are helpful and courteous. A wonderful Art Nouveau setting too. Very central to downtown attractions like the White House and Museums. Excellent.

“Tasty food in a tasteful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

There's a reason DC Coast is packed with regulars at lunch. The hostess knows their names and their favorite tables. But that's not the only reason they come. The food is terrific, the service top notch and the bill reasonable. I'm usually unimpressed with restaurant gumbo. DC Coast's version is stellar, with just the right touch of spice to bring out the flavor of crawfish, oysters and fish. My dining companion had the Caesar salad with fried oysters, which looked so good I was almost tempted to trade. Downtown workers have a limited time for lunch and DC Coast clearly gets that; service was prompt but never felt rushed. The small assortment of sweets that arrived with the bill was dessert enough for today; a nice touch that leaves guests wanting to return. I definitely will, perhaps for the special "Bar Express Lunch" they offer: two courses for $22. Especially since I see the gumbo's on the menu...

“Absolutely Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

What a great atmosphere! The food is amazing. The drinks are aweso. The A-Team behind the bar are fun, friendly, energetic, and make great origami. The steaks are fabulous. You get a very large portion with great flavor that will give any steakhouse a run for the money at half the cost. I cannot say enough good things about this place. I definitely recommend.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

We took our mother for Mother's Day/birthday dinner. The location was walking distance from our hotel so that is always a plus. The restaurant was stunning inside! Our server was Martina and she was attentive and extremely nice. We had the grilled fish special, seafood a la nage, and the pork chop. Hands down the food was one of the best meals I've had. We enjoyed our time there. If I ever go back to D.C. I will definitely return to D.C. Coast!
