    Our foursome shared the wings and ricotta bruschetta. Both were delicious. I had the chicken parm and it was a generous portion and very tasty. Others had salmon, the prosciutto and fig jam pizza and all were very flavorful. Service was great. The staff is always very friendly. We had a great night!

    Decided to try here for dinner on a week night in winter. Only 2 tables were occupied, but the staff and kitchen could not have been more welcoming and professional. They did a fine job explaining dishes we had questions about and made delicious recommendations for all courses. The homemade pasta was incredible! Absolutely loved our meal and the excellent service we enjoyed. Look forward to trying this place during the busier summer months. What a treat!

    Food was excellent, server was average, they charge 5.00 for a small bread basket with a mini oil and cheese...like 1"x1" square which is ridiculous! Wine glasses were small pours. Food shined though...grilled caesar, brociole and carbonara were excellent...Glenview priced....2-3 overpriced. Small menu Basic ambiance

    Loved everything about our first time experience at Coarse! Don't know why it took us so long to discover it. Homemade pasta was the draw and they did not disappoint. Lovely atmosphere-small and intimate. Ready for next visit-soon!

    Coast is hands down the best restaurant I’ve been to in north shore. I had started to give up hope after moving here from NyC in 2021; coast has renewed my excitement!! Even my husband - who doesn’t really care about food - LOVED his short rib pasta dish! The kids menu is also extensive and very delicious. I got the nightly special - chicken calabrese. It lasted for two leftover meals and I’m depressed it’s gone. I plan to go back every time they have the chicken calabrese special - true authentic delicious Italian. Coast stay a hidden gem in glenview!!!!

    Our reservation was at 6:30 on Sunday evening. We had just finished dinner and were still talking with our friends, finishing drinks when staff began shutting off all the dining room lights at 8pm, except over our table. It was a not so subtle hint to leave!

    Our waiter Lorenzo was excellent, we loved the food! However just as an advice we would love the margaritas to be slightly served in a bigger glass and the Ribs should come with a baked potato instead of French fries ❤️; the mushroom risotto was super tasty! Overall we had a great time, beautiful place and perfect location for my birthday 🎉. Thank you Lorenzo for the great service!

    On a golf “coarse”. Good Italian fare and ribs were good also! We sat outside overlooking the course. It was very casual and sitting outside was perfect for having 5 kids with us. We enjoyed the food. Kids Pizzas are huge for a kids meal!

    The food is alway excellent and our server, Patrick was wonderful, so personable. We ate outside which was great. My one complaint and I have heard from others that the ambiance inside is not great. Looks very generic. The atmosphere should be to the level of the fabulous food.

    Setting is beautiful. Appetizers were very good. Entrees were fair- not as good as the first time we were there. Cocktails were exceptional as they were the last time. When making the reservation we noted that this was a birthday celebration-they ask online if this was a special occasion. But no acknowledgment of the birthday in any way.
