My name is Joanne Mercier and I would like to let you know what a great restaurant you have in Coasters. My husband and myself enjoyed a great meal there last night. We have been there on many occasions and always leave feeling very satisfied.

My husband Marc has also had a few of his work Xmas parties there in the past. They have always been a hit with everyone. Your staff is very welcoming and receptive to our requests. The food is always fresh and delicious. The atmosphere is very inviting.

The choice for dining in the market is plentiful and varied, but we always keep coming back to your place. All this to say keep up the good work. All of you and your staffs efforts are very much appreciated.

Hey, what a great new menu! It’s like a flavour festival. We were a table of 4, had great mussels (all you can eat), a burger (warning: it’s a big burger. TWO PATTIES!), a smoked chicken poutine and a great arugula salad. Seems like a pretty well rounded menu with something for everyone. I will be back again soon! Oh, I forgot to mention, this place may have the best view of the Byward Market!

Ryan ‎ – 15 Mar, 2012 

I went to Ottawa last week for the first time! Went to Coaster’s gourmet grill in byward market for lunch. I gotta say, it was such a great atmosphere n most importantly great food!! I had the tallest burger in town n my girlfriend had fish taco. Burger was really tall lol also they have variety of dipping sauce which was amazing!!

“Nice surprise”
I used to go to Coasters when I went to Ottawa U when I was younger but moved away after graduating. I have moved back and I wanted to try some of the places I used to go to. Coasters still has all you can eat mussels which I love, and they have changed their menu. The fish tacos is a must try and their lobster grill cheese is perfect. The server was polite, helpful, and suggested the right wine for the meal. Overall I will be coming back Coasters thank you

Steve Charslton – February 24, 2012 

Holy sandwiches!

I came to Coasters for my regular All You Can Eat mussel fix (delicious), and to my surprise, the menu had changed! It’s actually a cool little menu. I skipped the mussels this time to try some of the new goodies, as did my girlfriend. Lauren, our server, recommended the smoked chicken poutine and the fish tacos. We had them both (Thanks Lauren!) They were absolutely delicious, as was the lobster grilled cheese. A nice bottle of white rounded out the meal, lol. Well, I would recommend going and checking this out, it’s definitely something different in the Market. I will be back for sure!
