Servers not wearing masks properly. Tent did not have enough airflow
The food is really good. Simple as that.
Thank you. Never disappointed!
One of our local favorites. We usually sit at the bar so we can meet people! Great time and the servers are excellent!
We were seated in the tent. Loved how peaceful and quiet it was. Food, drinks and service was perfect.
I think it was probably the worst service I had to date in terms of service. We were not given any plates for the appetizers after they were brought out by the kitchen and the server didn’t come by to check in on us at all. I had to ask a server walking by to grab our server but even that took forever. By the time the server came and asked what we needed, we were all done w appetizers and I had let the server know. To my surprise, all she said was “ok” when she was told we didn’t have any plates and we had finished eating our appetizers without them.
My friends and I have always loved Coastal Kitchen but after this experience, I don’t think we will ever return.
Dinner on the patio on a Friday night. Service was great and the food delivered on all expectations (great crab cakes with creamy cole slaw and quinoa salad on the side). Noise level outside a bit loud but nothing to stop us coming back. Great barrel-aged negroni, too.
As always excellent food and service. All servers were masked even outdoors where we sat. I tried the crabcake salad which was amazing especially with their Pinot Grigio as my wine selection. A friend had the chicken BLT which he enjoyed and I am definitely going to order the next time as it looked fantastic. Service is always on point. It’s one of our favorite places.
Service continues to be outstanding!
Best burger ever! Love the wine choices! Excellent service. Key lime pie is over the top delicious! Our favorite restaurant in Dana Point!!
I’m a regular at Coastal and I absolutely love the atmosphere and food! It’s consistently excellent. The crab cake salad is always amazing, I also love the key lime pie, it’s the best around! The trout dip is also another winner! They have a passion unsweetened ice tea which is very good too.
This is consistently the best “go to” place in Dana Point. The food and service are always great.
We sat on outdoor patio by fire. Wonderful setting even though on PCH. Food was delicious but a little pricey (try the smoked trout dip! Yum) and service was friendly and attentive. Would absolutely go back. I suspect parking could be an issue on a busy summer day.
Excellent service and yummy food!
Caesar and quinoa salads are standouts, consistently crisp fresh and perfect starters. The roasted chicken was delicious although served lukewarm. One person could make make a meal with the delicious salmon street tacos. Definitely top it off with the key lime pie
Always great food and service!
I missed the halibut
James our server are Amazing, food is outstanding we will be returning.
Appetizer and soup was very good. My wife really enjoyed the crab cakes. My fried chicken was a little salty. Butter Cake was excellent! Would go back.
One of our favorite dining spots! Can’t go wrong here.
Food and service was great as always. Love the friendly staff. One recommendation is to reduce the loudness of the music inside. Way too loud to have conversations heard.
The menu changes with the seasons. The food is always interesting and delicious!!
We are never disappointed. The crab salad was unbelievable. Filet was cooked perfectly. Definitely one of our favorite places to dine.
The food was very good, and the staff excellent. It was a very nice evening.
We had the ribs and rotisserie chicken. Both were good but not great. They were over $30 each and two of cheapest entrees. Thought it high for quality and atmosphere. Lemon drop martini was tasty but $17 for less than generous pour.
We had a wonderful birthday celebration. The food was amazing & the service was great too!
Love the food
We love coastal kitchen. It’s always a great environment and phenomenal food!
Overall good. Had the rib-eye
Was not impressed. But took it home and my dog loves it.
Clam chowder was excellent and the quinoa salad was good
Ahi could I’d been a higher Grade but still good.
Our dinner was delicious as well as the cocktails and wine! Our server was great as well! We even had delicious Keylime pie for dessert! If you haven’t been to the Coastal Kitchen you definitely need to put it on your calendar! Always great!
Nipped in for a quick lunch and my my that was an unexpected surprise. The clam chowder was one of the best outside of New England. Prime rib dip was tender, flavorful and I really enjoyed the horseradish crème. The crab cake salad was delicious. This thing is fresh and packed with lump crab. No filler all thriller. Wife’s chicken BLT sammich was good but perhaps a touch dry. Chicken and bacon were crispy though, so maybe just add a little more aioli. We’ll be back
Nice place for indoor or outdoor dining. Suggest getting appetizers and a sandwich. Entrees are good but not great when you take into account the prices. Great service and location.
Great discovery while staying in Dana Point. Love the ribs!
Always a good experience Service exceptional always attentive and accommodating to our needs and wants .
Nice open space, great location. Food was average. Wine at $17/glass for this pour was ... a poor price. Sat down at 550 and music was very loud, surprisingly. Just expected more of a nuanced touch in terms of atmosphere, the food standing out more, etc.
For some reason they leave the front doors propped open even in the evening. The restaurant was very cold at our 7pm dinner recently approx 1/6/22. I asked if they would close the doors and they closed one and left the other open, so still pretty chilly inside. Only reason didn't give 5 stars. The parker house rolls, steak, and key lime are always a winner though!
Everything at Coastal Kitchen is tasty, but the ahi (salad or entree) is the most perfectly seared I have ever had. Generously thick slices with tender rare goodness inside and al dente seared edges for a perfect contrast.
I took my son and his family to celebrate his US naturalisation. There were 7 of us including a baby. Coastal Kitchen is our favourite Dana Point destination for the quality of the food, location and service. In particular, their trout dip, crab cakes, cheeseburger, ribs are highlights but every menu item is good. The fries are OUTSTANDING - not frozen and dropped into a fryer with a clink! Proper potato served with delicious dips too - best in Orange County by a long way.
We had a reservation and were seated right away. The service was excellent. The food was fresh, excellent quality, prepared well and delicious.
Great service and food. Roasted chicken was the favorite.
Everything was delicious! We had a lovely lunch and enjoyed our time there. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and very cozy. Great service!
Great experience for us on New Years Day!
