Goin' Coastal - Virginia Highland Ratings and Reviews
We celebrated our anniversary after hearing such great things about this restaurant for many years, we find ally made it!! The food, amazing, service, awesome, noise level was extremely high and our 7:45 reservation was seated at 8:15. Very apologetic and accommodating to our needs. We will definitely be back, but with earplugs!!!
I like visiting this restaurant frequently (3-6/year). If they were open for lunch, I'd visit way more often. Our favorites in Virginia-Highland are Murphy's and Goin' Coastal. Our waiter the other night, Joe, was very friendly and a pleasure. The waitstaff all have been consistently friendly – not the self-important or standoffish type. I greatly enjoy their fish preparations. The only drawback is that the parking meter in front of the place on Virginia Avenue doesn't work well at all.
Great food! Made the reservation in advance and had no wait even though the place was packed. Fresh fish and the best calamari I've had in Atlanta! Terry was our waiter and did a fantastic job as did everyone from the kitchen to the table! Relaxed atmosphere with a full service bar and no problems accommodating special requests! Thumbs up for sure!!
Went here with a group the other night and I am already booking my next reservation. First of all its really cute- great dark wood bar, wood floors and booths! Our waitress was really friendly and the service was on point. But the food oh man! The menu states they get their fish flown in every 36 hours and I believe it everything was so fresh! Everyone agreed - one person had salmon, one had swordfish and the other hamachi and those were all great but my bluefin tuna was outstanding - simply prepared with olive oil salt and pepper over really good couscous- I was completely happy. Appetizers were great too - we had the frito misto, the poke and the octopus with chorizo which was ridiculously good. At the end we all split a peanut butter pie, I would go there just for that!
Shout out to the bar too for some really good creative cocktails- we will be back for sure.
My first but not my last visit to this wonderful seafood restaurant! Everything on the menu is appealing and I would like to order and enjoy each and every item! I took the waitress' advice and absolutely loved the seafood risotto for my first experience...The only negative is that parking is difficult since it is located in Virginia-Highlands.
It's been a "go to place" for us since they opened. Excellent seafood options prepared reasonably well. Prices are moderately high but then it seems that most seafood these days commands a premium. I had grouper -- nicely done; my accomplice had crab cake -- not so nicely done -- in fact after two bites, she gave up. It almost tasted as if it was a curry dish although probably not, and, she is not a curry fan. Frankly, it was "off" as compared to past experience. Although I offered to pay for it and have her order something else, the house, to their credit, comped it.
We both had cosmos - now in all fairness, we are cosmo snobs -- gotta use fresh lime juice, Cointreau, and Tito's vodka. After shaking the stew out of it, it should be a pale pink color with ever so small ice crystals on top. Unfortunately, the cosmos were among the worse that we have ever had -- very deep red color, I'd guess too much cranberry and not enough lime juice and probably not shaken sufficiently -- we won't do that again!
Still, in our neighborhood, Goin' Coastal is a fair option and we will go back again.
Terry once again made our experience awesome. He explained the specials in detail even though the crowd noise was challenging. We ended up having four courses that were perfectly matching the description either on the menu or told by Terry. The courses were not rushed and the transition from course to course was smooth. The list of fresh fish is always diverse and makes decision making difficult as they all sound delicious. We were celebrating my fiancées birthday and we were surprised with a desert for her. We love this place and will continue to go our selves as well as encouraging others to try this gem out.
Great experience and the food was spot on. Laura (sp) our server was on point. Bash the GM came by and suggested the Tilefish and Tuna plates, which were nice. Would definitely recommend the place. We brought our own wine, which was fine with them, you gotta like that in a restaurant.
Met my best friend for a last minute dinner. I was very lucky to get a table because they are usually booked until late in the evening. T
he mussels are some of the best foot in the city! They always taste very fresh and the broth is unique and delicious. Any of the fish made with the baked preparation is always fantastic.
Goin' Coastal has to be one of the best fish restaurants in town-- terrific options and the best part is that they only purchase sustainable seafood and fish. Had the special -- lobster stuffed flounder and it was divine. It was well worth the price!
