Had a great dinner here. Portions were small but very good. Tons of staff on duty and service did not disappoint. We would come back. Make a reservation. It is very very busy. Tables are so close together it is hard to maneuver.

High energy, super loud ambiance created by guests, music and the kitchen. Food was good, too pricy for what you get, service slow. But ... it was incredibly busy so it must appeal to a certain demographic.

Hi Cathy. Thank you for your feedback. Admittedly, as the energy picks up throughout the day so can the noise levels of the room. While I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your meal, I apologize if this effected your overall experience. We always welcome feedback. Please feel free to email marketing@glowbalgroup.com with details regarding your service and we will be... More

Coast was recommended to us by the Vanvouver Visitor Centre as a nice place to have lunch. The restaurant was very busy (about 1pm) but we were immediately seated and made to feel welcome. Even though busy, we didn't have to wait too long before food was on the table. We both had Salmon on Flatbread which was very good,... More

Coast is a wonderful seafood restaurant in downtown Vancouver. We were lucky enough to be able to eat outside with space heaters. The only issue with that is that there was a smoker from the table next to us standing on the sidewalk outside the barrier. We had the mango California roll which was filled with fresh crab and just... More

This is clearly a destination for the rich and famous in Vancouver - but that shouldn't put off the tourist because the welcome we received when we dropped in without a reservation was just as warm and effusive as we could have wished for if we had been regulars! The place really buzzes and so it should because the food... More

If you can't decide what to have or you have a party of diners who all want different things, this is great place to try. Our table had oysters and lobster poutine to start....very good. Then a mix of beef, seafood and fish mains that were all well prepared and tasty. Not everything was a home run, but nothing was... More

The Coast Restaurant was recommended by the concierge at our hotel during a one day stay in Vancouver after an Alaska cruise. Although we expect to pay a high price for fresh seafood, the cost of the meal was overpriced given the small portions received. We ordered one of the seafood platters for two and left still feeling hungry. The... More

My wife and I were both keen to try this place after reading about it, and finding it on our first day in Vancouver. We like to eat earlier in the day, and we took advantage of their 'Appy Hour specials and had a marvelous meal for half the price it would usually cost. If you like seafood, and if... More

This whole group of restaurants mostly clustered together has a great ethos. In the mid afternoon they offer 50% off all appies and salads and 50% off certain drinks. Alternatively you can have 2 appies, and 2 mains and the second main is free! This is from 1500/1800 7 days per week and boy were they getting busy as we... 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.
