coast so so

Went to coast restaurant on friday night for my first time. I was very impressed by the layout and the level of service we recieved. What did not impress me was the food. Oredered the appy sampler for two and was expecting a treat for my taste buds. However, after tasting I was a little surprised at the lack of flavour and overall taste of the food. The proscuitto was cut way to thick and was un chewable in small bites, lobster poutine was bland and needed some citrus or something as it tasted like campbells clam chowder, the fries underneath were soggy and nowhere near a fritte like the menu said. Having said that you cannot judge it on just an appy platter so the service and ambience will get me back for another try.

So far so good

I've been to this restaurant about 5 or 6 times and so far I have not been disappointed. That being said, the only thing I've had at Coast was fish and seafood so I can't comment on their meat dishes. A sure bet for me is always the special (which is usually a fish). The service that night was quick and attentive, they even informed us of when our taxi was waiting outside. The only drawback is the temperature in this restaurant can sometimes be too warm, especially if the chef is cooking in the communal table. All in all, good food, good service, reasonable prices, highly recommended spot for a casual dinner with good friends.

Would go back

Went to Coast the other night. We started with Tiger prawn and sauasge spring roll that was OK and the beef carpacio which was awsome melt in your mouth dish. Would highly reccomend this dish. Then the mains, beef tenderloin cooked to perfection and the duck trio nice, tender, and loads of flavor. The service staff were quick and very attentive. Absolutly no problems. I would recommend and would go back again.

...otherwise I'd have to reconsider my fathers assertion that money buys happiness. You know the one: become an engineer, take a sensible job with good benefits in a shitty suburb of a decent city, marry someone with secure finances and a healthy respect for the RRSP..

now see, ive already buggered the first three but the marrying money thing did in fact re-enter my head whilst chewing my itty bitty crabcake at coast...if I could have this everyday..I could give up love, love gets stale! but this rainbow trout... with fresh fennel hearts.... and spicy green beans: the young speedo wearing pool boy for sure.....

nothing overdone. superb restraint.

(this is when I began to get envious of my neighbour's moroccan spiced australian lamb sirloin with black olive red wine reduction) I traded forkfuls. it was amazing. tender and deeply flavorful- must try for lamb fans. no hideous mint jelly here.

I was skeptical: tiny portions. but the sum of all parts was so satisfying without the post ingestion sluggishness of the de rigur rich food thing.

in terms of ambiance i was less impressed.... it was too bright and the waiters were obviously out of work actors.. one kept touching my arm. I'll need those little thrills when I'm shacked up with my boring purveyor of expensive tiny crabcakes.

don't overdress.
