This place surprised me. I enjoyed a great dinner there the other night. Food was delicious. They specialize in bringing in oysters, etc but I had a great tilefish dinner that was a special for the night. A small place, tucked in the middle of a few restaurants in Clayton. Check it out!

My husband and I arrived to our hotel in Clayton rather late. We decided to see if we could find a restaurant for a light dinner. We were able to walk into Coastal and be seated outside immediately. Our food and service were great. You can eat inside or out. We chose to eat outside, it was such a nice evening. We had an interesting mix of very friendly people around us. It also was fun to people watch others passing by the restaurant. We dined on salad and the awesome cheese plate. This saved room for the incredible dessert shooter sampler. It was a toss up between the lemon and the rocky road. I want to go back and try some of their dinners.

Small quaint restaurant with sidewalk dining and the menu on a chalkboard. Exquisitely prepared and presented food. A mix of casual and business diners. Attentive service. Perfectly prepared Salmon Niciose....warm salmon, potatoes, olive and green beans topped with spinach greens and a vinagerette.

Surely, this is Paris!

Had lunch on a Friday and both service and food were great. Salad had great piece of Salmon on top. Mussels were excellent. Iced tea was great and served in great mason jar glasses. Food was as good as Oceano with more relaxed atmosphere.

The food was very good here. Nice presentation, well prepared, delicious tasting. They currently offer a fixed price menu as well, $25 for app/ salad, entree and mini dessert; a good value for Clayton. They offer a very reasonably priced white bordeau that went well with the salmon. Minimal, rather austere decor, which is the only downside. The tables are white formica with no cloth and uncomfortable plastic chairs. All the hard surfaces make it rather loud, too.
