La Fontana Coast Ratings and Reviews
We enjoyed the food very much at LaFonta ...
We enjoyed the food very much at LaFontana Coast. I had the salmon bruschetta and it was excellent and cooked to perfection. My son had the veal fontana along with the Ceasar salad and he really liked it. I thought the sauce was a little too sweet for my taste on the veal fontana and I wouldn't recommend. They forgot to serve us the bread but when we asked they brought it right away. I thought the service was very courteous and quick.
We only waited a few minutes for our table unlike their location in Strathmere where I always wait over an hour and the host doesn't seem to care. I will definitely go back here and forget dining at the Strathmere location. The ambience is fine but is a little loud but everyone is happy and enjoying their meal.The food is the same quality and the service is much better.

Meh! By the crowd at the door it looked like there was something
special here but not really.... The cessation salad must have been made w veg oil, the Parmesan out of a box and no sign of an anchovy...
the pasta was ok...the bread store bought... Really don't bother!

Came with a fairly large group. Restaurant was crowded, but we were seated promptly as per our reservation.
Neither my appetizer nor my entree was as described on menu. My wife's entree was not as per menu.
It appears that the kitchen could not handle the packed restaurant.

Went there Sunday for my husband's birthday. All four of us were happy with our meals. I have to say that is very unusual. Not so much that we are picky, but we know good food and it seems that many restaurants just don't know how to properly prepare and serve good food. La Fontana Coast was a pleasant surprise. I do recommend.
I have NEVER been in such a crowded rest ...
I have NEVER been in such a crowded restaurant in my life. Tables were ridiculously close to the point that the wait staff had to move sideways in the aisle. I thought the large long table in the middle was one large group, but it turned out to be three separate groups - the tables were virtually touching. The description indicated ocean view, but unless there was a rooftop somewhere we weren't aware of, it's difficult to see the ocean from across the street with buildings on the other side.

The food was very good. The service was suspect, but not our waiter. Charlie, our waiter, was given way too many tables with zero support. We had to ask 4 people to get us water and flatware, after the hostess sat us said she would be right over with it.

I had an amazing dinner with my friend. I had the gnocchi and she had the lobster ravioli which we both loved and enjoyed. I cant wait to come back and bring my family here for them to try it out. We had a table outside, which was cool.

Apps were good - scallops wrapped in bacon & calamari. I had one of the specials that tasted great. My concern is that is was $10 more than anything else on the menu and was never told the price. I may still have ordered but nice to know up front so not surprised.

Made reservation & was seated early on Friday evening. Appetizers were great,some of the best calamari we have had. Meals came out hot & very good
Homemade pasta always makes the meal taste better. Tables are a bit tight which helped make the room noisy.
