We had dinner here one night. Busy spot for good reason. Very popular with tourists and the local business crowd but we saw a wide range of ages here. Food was great. Wine list was good too. Our server was excellent and very quick to note individual tastes. Our hotel made reservations for us and we were treated like royalty!... More

Coast is my favorite lunch spot in Vancouver. The sushi boxes and the chicken salad are amazing. My server Laura is one of the best around!

Visited as they have a great selection of sea food on the menu, and I was craving fish and chips. I opted for just that - and was very pleased to be offered vinegar, ketchup and the meal come with lemon, tartar sauce and coleslaw. Overall, the meal was nice, albeit the fish was more goldfish. I did enjoy my... More

Expensive for the Vancouver dining scene. Not a restaurant for those that do not like seafood and fish. Food is well prepared but lacks some originality. Restaurant is noisy and busy. Actually found it very difficult to read the menu ... dark restaurant, poor contrast for font and background on the menu.

The food is excellent, but not good for intimate conversation because it is generally very crowded and noisy.

My colleague and I wound up at Coast on the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel. We asked where was good in Vancouver for vegetarian and fish dishes, and without missing a beat he'd suggested Coast and was already drawing the route out on the map. His assertion that it was a really good spot was so emphatic that... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
