Went to Gotham Saturday evening. We go out at least once a week for dinner and was really looking forward to Gotham as I had heard quite positive things about them. I also felt terrible about the negative press coverage they recieved a few weeks ago as a result of the shooting outside. This had nothing to do with restaurant and was unfair that they continually were mentioned. When we arrived I was very pleasantly not only by the greeting which was prompt and friendly but also by the room when we were seated. I think it is beautiful and very rich feeling. They have definately taken the traditional "steak house" feel and gone Way beyond. Our server was good, at times seemed a bit distracted but still showed that he really knew what he was doing. I just wish they would relax a bit; the hands behind the back, stiff, good evening mam is a bit tired in my view. Had beef tenderloin - was cooked perfectly, and the sides, mushrooms, asparagus, garlic mash were all Very good. My steak itself was only ok - for tenderloin it wasn't that tender and the flavour was alright. The server never asked how everything was or I would have told him and perhaps had it fixed. However overall I would go back as I loved the place and with another server it could be the perfect spot.

We went to Coast last Sat. This was now our 4th visit and to date the best. After only a couple of visits the staff recognized us and treated us like they had known us for years. The menu is a little large for my liking but offers something for everyone I suppose. That being said I have not had a single dish that was less than very good and some like the sable fish are amazing. This past visit the chef came to our table and welcomed us back; then proceeded to just cook. It was the best meal I have ever had!! Service is always friendly yet remains professional and everyone generally seems to have a great time working there. That may seem an odd comment but I think it really affects to feeling in the restaurant. Will continue to go to Coast and suggest it to everyone. One last comment; if you are looking for a quiet little spot then you may be disappointed, but if you want a vibrant, exciting, lively place with great food then this is it! Highly recommend.
