Our party of 9 women made a reservation for the patio at 4:30 pm. When we arrived they tried to squish us into a table for 6! We told them we would move inside so we could each have a seat. They changed our waiter and we got Brad!! We had lots of happy hour appies and drinks and then... More

The seafood is very good, but as other have said, it's not the most spectacular I've ever had. At Coast, it is about the dining experience, which includes more than food. Unlike some other restaurants that seem to have an attitude that diners should be thankful to be allowed to eat there, at Coast, the staff treat people like royalty... More

Coast is a cool place, with great food and drinks. We sat at the bar and got to talk to the bartenders, who were very attentive. The food was great, the drinks were great. No complaints at all. As a bonus we discovered that they offer $1 oysters during happy hour. Although I didn't get a chance to try them... More

The atmosphere was a mix between modern, up town city and neighborhood feel. The tables were a little close together, but it actually gave us a chance to talk with our neighbors. I know some may not like that, but we thought it was nice. The food was absolutely excellent! And the service was supreme. There wasn't a huge wait... More

Even as you walk towards the restaurant, you can feel it is an upscale, trendy location that has a louder atmosphere with interesting accent lighting throughout the interior and covered exterior. This would not be a place to simply grab a bite, but an excellent place to make a reservation for a special occasion and enjoy yourself.

If you are looking for the Young and Rich, this is your place. The food was barely 'OK' and although the waiter went out on a limb and recommended the 'Platter', it was overpriced and more appetizer portion, and also not that good and the salmon had to be sent back for being OVERCOOKED. Then we had to question the... More

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.
