We had lunch at Coast and the food is just ok. The service is terrible and you have to dodge birds flying in front of your face while trying to enjoy your meal.

Setting was beautiful and food was very good. Good location for dining with kids. Service was also good but our waiter was very forward at the end with his expectations regarding a tip. He made us feel very uncomfortable.

famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles

Description
Yes, Coast is a casual beachfront cafe and bar. Chilled Chardonnay, spicy guacamole, and warm tortilla chips await; imaginative chefs and California-inspired dishes take the prize. But Coast is also a state of mind. It's the moment you breathe in the ocean air, the second you realize maybe you don't have to go to the office after all. Or even call in. Then you can finally exhale. Coast is where you want to spend the afternoon, any day of the year. Happy Hour, a communal table, a beachside cafe and bar, whether you are walking in off the sand with your family in tow, or meeting up for a cocktail and plate of fries, Coast is the perfect Santa Monica Restaurant to enjoy dining on the coast. When it comes to Santa Monica beach restaurants, there's no place like Coast. This is eating, drinking, beaching, relaxing at its most family-friendly, casual, and delicious. Did we mention the view of the Pacific Ocean?
