We went to this restaurant during our recent visit to Vancouver because my husband wanted seafood and this place was highly rated. We made reservations through Open Table and were seated immediately. The hostess's were very nice. We had a nice table and were served our luke warm water immediately, by a busser. Since we got tepid water every where... More

The environment inside is very nice but it is incredible how many people are working there (efficiency opportunity?). The food was prepared and cooked superbly with the minor detail that I found my halibut to be a. It overlooked and a little dry for my liking and the piece itself had very little flavour. On the other hand, I had... More

I attended a group business dinner at Coast and give it a very good rating overall. The service was very attentive during the evening with glasses being refilled regularly and plates being swapped within a good timeframe. As a group we shared many of the appetizer choices which was great, and each of them seemed to be a home run.... More

Food was very good and less expensive than I would have thought at a place like this. Décor was sleek and comfortable.

What a disappointment! I have been at Coast on several occasions with some friends but this time I was absolutely disappointed to have held my dinner/presentation event in their private room upstairs for 25 people. There are several aspects of the evening that were such a letdown especially when your minimum spend is $3000. Starting with the level of noise... More

Good service. Food was nice - especially the sushi and calamari. The seafood platter was not as amazing as those you see in Europe but still good. It's as much about being seen there as the food I think.

I was looking for seafood and passed Coast by accident. No problem getting in as a single at the bar without a reservation. The service was friendly and attentive. It is bright, lively and contemporary. The waiter behind the bar knew his food and drink. I had 6 Kusshi oysters, medium size, sweet and delicious, prepared in front of you.... More

Wow, the setting is like out of a hip movie scene! Our particular server dropped the ball in getting to us. After 15 minutes we said something and received a surly reply. He didn't really offer any help with the menu selections either. The food was very good and it was a nice evening.

Other than the valet service which was prompt and courteous there wasn't a thing that went well. We were seated at an oblong table for ten upstairs. . .the shape and placement of the table made conversation impossible so the host requested a change.

Recommended by our concierge and a fellow pool sitter (a resident) and it was great! Service was amazing. Cameron, our server was particularly attentive - antipated how/when to serve without being told. We're frequent travelers/diners and even so were impressed! Very good menu and flavors - vibrant atmosphere. A definite MUST in Vancouver!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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.
