Coast1054 Alberni Street, Vancouver
Nothing Special
Submitted Thursday, February 4, 2010 - 1:08am [Dine in]

Recently went to Coast before the hockey game for a casual dinner. Having been to the original Coast in Yaletown, we thought we would try out the new setting. I've decided Alberni is the best new street in Vancouver so I'd definitely give it props for the excellent location and new space. Reserves were for 5:30 PM because of the game, but it was already busy with the business dinners and such. The first experience was a long, and slightly awkward, wait for the Valet to appear. Eventually we were seated. It was no special occasion, so the tight table overlooking the bar wasn't really an issue. I'd definitely have to say the menus are tacky and oversized. They're like the ones at the Boathouse which are nothing to rave about. I had some Spicy tuna rolls to start as they were out of the calamari, which seemed like it would be tasty. Had a 1lb lobster for a main which was $39, which is basically on par with places. It came in a metal serving tray with handles on the side. Nothing to be excited over. We also had steak with sea scallops. Scallops were cooked properly and were definitely fresh. Overall it is fine, but it does seem a little bit touristy. After dinner we went to pay and found out they don't take Debit cards so if you don't want to pay credit you must draw money from the ATM located in the back. After paying there was an awkwardly long line at the valet. Three people were standing there with their cars pulled up as Both valets disappeared retrieving my car. In the end I would rather go somewhere like Blue Water Cafe or West for their exceptional and unique menus. Coast is average at best and is definitely not somewhere I would make an effort to return to.

Blue Water Cafe + Raw Bar1095 Hamilton Street, Vancouver
One of the Best in Yaletown
Submitted Monday, January 15, 2007 - 7:07pm [Dine in]

The Blue Water Café was great. The service was amazing (maybe because we went so early), the food was nice and the desert was great. The Beef Tenderloin was a very nice cut and cooked to perfection, but it lacked the presentation that other entrees had. It was very tasty, but there was too much oily sauce sitting at the bottom. But oh well, I loved it anyways. The Sushi bar also created amazing concoctions. They were very tasty and well worth it. The desert was by far the best. The Crème Brule was amazing, which came with remarkable ice cream and the lava cake was the best I’ve ever had. Overall, the Blue Water Café has it all. A menu that suits everyone, a prime location and great people. I’d also recommend going here before a Canucks game; it is in perfect walking distance.

Good but not
Submitted Monday, January 15, 2007 - 6:58pm [Dine in]

The setting here is great. There is plenty of parking in the lot, and the night time views of False Creek and Granville Island are pleasant. We arrived fairly early so there wasn’t a lot of noise, but this quickly changed. Around 7:30 crowds of people poured in and the restaurant was loud and the service quickly went downhill. The Caesar salads were brown and wilted and were horrible. The Steak on the stone was nice. There is herbs for flavour and best of all you can choose how you want it done. Most restaurants ruin the true rare, and it is nice to be able to do it yourself. The Crème Brule infused cheesecake was also terrible. It crumbled apart and was as dry as ever. This aside, I think it is a great concept and the entrees are definitely their strong point. I’d recommend a nice green salad with the steak for a perfect meal.
