The Canary Hotel’s website describes the new Finch & Fork, formerly Coast, as a corner grill, and they really mean it. After years of having to enter the restaurant via the hotel’s driveway, the main entrance is now on the corner of Carrillo and Chapala, a clear sign locals are more than welcome. “It’s a casual setting for social dining and a family environment that caters to being able to relax,” is how executive chef James Siao puts it. “We hope locals and guests can have great conversations together over cocktails.”

The esteemed Kimpton chain has slowly been working on this revamp, which Siao calls a “gradual transition. We’re keeping some local favorites [from the Coast menu] like the flatbreads and blistered shishitos … But we are also stressing the Kimpton standards — local ingredients, the simplicity of our food, keeping the genuineness of our product, whether from the Farmers Market or the harbor.”

My friend and I went for breakfast on Sunday 11/22/09, there were only 3 parties in the restaurant. I ordered The Americana which comes with 2 eggs any style, sausage or bacon, potatoes, toast and juice and coffee.
I requested 2 soft boiled eggs...I got 2 hard-boiled eggs, sent them back then they brought me 2 more hard boiled eggs, the toast was hard and cold..The potatoes were skimpy and cold..I never received the juice.
The service was horrible as well, however one of the waiters was very friendly but not attentive.
They just don't have it together there! The best thing they did I wasn't charged for the meal!
I would not return nor recommend this place to anyone!
