We were trying out Coast, but we took quite an early reservation since we had to get to play afterwards. It was a real early dinner and one other table had already been seated. We seated quite quickly by the hostess and were given menus. Our server was quite adamant about trying to get us to order some drinks and asked quite frequently throughout the night until she finally gave up and was absent for the better half of the meal.
Food-wise it was quite good. I was in the mood for some oysters that night, so I tried out the Kusshi oysters they had and they were quite delectabel and fresh, didn't need any sauces just a bit of lemon. For the apps, we tried out both options, my friend thought that the crab cakes were a bit lacking in flavour, while my tuna tartar had a nice kick of spice in it to start out with. Once again, we split the mains. I had the miso crusted sablefish, which was really flakey and buttery in texture in flavour. I also enjoyed the lamb, as it was not overdone had good flavours in it. Dessert was probably my favourite course for the night. I love the fact that it was interactive, since it was fondue and you got to dip it into the chocolate. I kind of abused the fact we had leftover chocolate and put the peanut butter bar in it as well, which made it jsut that much better.
The atmosphere of the place was quite warm, but I kind of felt the music choices were a bit off, since one moment the songs would be calm ones then the next moment would like a techno-rave-ish type of music.
Overall the food is what made this DOV experience more enjoyable.
