Coast Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Whether you're seated on the patio with fires burning at either side, front and center at the bar, or at a table in this dramatic multi-level restaurant, be ready to enjoy the freshest of seafood. Settle in with a Coast martini, an inspired libation of vodka, apple liqueur, blue curacao, lemon juice and sugar. A “must have” is the signature chilled seafood tower, a showcase of lobster, prawns, Alaska king crab, Dungeness crab, salmon poke, albacore tuna sashimi, marinated mussels, spicy tuna rolls and shucked oysters with house-made orange-horseradish marmalade and seafood sauce served over dry ice. Main courses include wild white miso-glazed sablefish with wasabi whipped potatoes; Japanese-style escabeche and lotus chips; lobster stuffed with Dungeness crab with garlic greens and Tabasco hollandaise; and the ever-popular surf ‘n’ turf platter for two loaded with Angus reserve strip loin, lobster tail, wild salmon, sea scallops, creamy faro and crispy Brussels sprouts. For a finale, the dessert sampler offers assorted macarons, coconut-banana butter cookies, marshmallows, chocolate truffles and green apple gummy candy. The wine list has plenty of seafood-friendly options. Service is topnotch. Check out the adjoining O Lounge, a sizzling, sexy, cocktail lounge and the place to see and be seen.
