“Creative and innovative menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Had a family gathering brunch here for about 15 people. Excellent service. Menu was mouth-watering and hard to choose from all the great options. Every person at our table was more than pleased with their meal. I recently purchased coupon for another meal there. Can't wait to try their lunch or dinner menu.

“Unique menu, large portions, tasty food, must try!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

We have been to Left Coast kitchen two times for breakfast and plan on going back soon. The restaurant itself looks like any other bar/restaurant, nothing special or interesting about the décor. However, the menu is very creative, not your typical diner type menu. From the sweet potato- marshmallow pancakes to the lobster and crab hash with eggs you can't go wrong. The only thing I didn't love was that you have to order as is from the menu, you can't make special requests or substitutions in a dish. I have never seen this in any restaurant. Everything we ordered was really good though. Portions are pretty large, you will take home leftovers. I am looking forward to trying the dinner entrees soon and hope they are just as tasty.

“Nice hidden gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

This restaurant offers a diverse menu with entrees that have local and international flair. It is not the usual fare you would find out on Long Island. The restaurant is clean with attentive wait staff and a laid back feel to it that makes you feel like you are in a quaint town somewhere. It is a bit noisy so you will have to speak up when you talk to someone, but that is not a drawback. It only speaks to the happy crowd that come here. While you wait, you will be treated to some of the most delicious popcorn I have ever tasted. The entrees are huge portions and will cause you to leave feeling like you are going to pop.

“Excellent food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

It was our first visit to this restaurant and we were very,very pleasantly surprised! The food was EXCELLENT! It started with popcorn served in a cone with garlic truffle oil! It should be illegal it was SOOOOOO good!!! The entrees we ordered were the short ribs and a shrimp dish, both were extraordinary. There was a slight mix up with the entree order which caused a 10 minute delay in serving and for the "incovenience" the management comped the wine we had ordered. My only concern with the restaurant is that it is VERY small, fills up immediately and parking is difficult at best. But the solution is to eat early as either a late lunch or early dinner. The food is definitely worth and minor incovenience and we are looking forward to a return visit.

“Fantastic!!!! Place is always packed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

We ordered 4 different breakfast dishes and sides. Everything was simply delicious. I'm pretty picky, but have to say- food was hot, presented in a nice fashion, the amount of food was plentiful, and the service was Excellent!! I will look forward to going back again! It's amazing what the kitchen puts out!
