Excellent food. The duck was the BEST I've ever tasted.
The marinated skirt steak was terrific. The tagliatelle bolognase with veal sausage appetizer was made with homemade pasta. Really flavorful,.
Can't wait to go back to order it as a main dish.
The service was superb. They literally refilled my water glass 10 times. It never was empty.
I will tell all to try this local restaurant.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was friendly andThe service was friendly and attentive despite the crush of the Restaurant Week crowd. Our table was ready at the reserved time. Our waitress spent several minutes discussing choices with us and never making us feel rushed.
The food was excellent. Tagliatelle Bolognese appetizer and duck entree were exquisite. My wife complained that the brook trout was a little salty for her taste, but she enjoyed it nevertheless.
Note that their prix-fixe menu is available all day Sundays, so we can afford to keep this place on our regular list even after Restaurant Week is over.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMQuiet food very good serviceQuiet food very good service people very nice.

Never disappointed. The food and service is consistent and great specials.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our meal. TheWe enjoyed our meal. The service was not "in your face" but our glasses were never empty long.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food, so-so serviceStarting with the crab cake appetizer all the way through to the homemade tiramisu, the food was a delight! Wine choices were also very good. Service, though, was another story - we had a reservation, and were seated before our friends arrived. Strangely, no one thought to bring our friends to our table when they checked in with the host, and it was 15 minutes before we got things figured out...we did get to spend alot of time catching up, though, because it took 45 minutes from the time we ordered to get anything besides bread and drinks. That said, the staff was very nice, just not very communicative about the progress of our dinners. We agreed we would give 490 West another try, since the food was so delicious!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce AgainOnce again, we brought a friend who has never been to 490 West. We are sure that he will be back with his family and friends. 490 West is a great local restaurant with a TOP NOTCH chef and service that makes you feel like family.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent. TheThe food was excellent. The chef's tasting menu was outstanding. The service was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The decor could have used some updating. Excellent meal.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMust try this place!We loved this place! The meal was excellent and service was great. They advertised that they accommodate food allergies and that was a key reason for us to try this restaurant. The waitress knew pretty much all the ingredients used in the dishes we ordered, and what she wasn't sure of she made certain to ask the chef. Everything we had was cooked to perfection and delicious! I would really recommend this place and will certainly be going back again.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood presentation was excellentFood presentation was excellent and food is delicious and very fine quality of ingredients. As an Italian coming from an excellent line of excellent cooks - I give the chef an A for the eggplant entree.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMHave been to 490 West manyHave been to 490 West many times now and have yet to be disappointed!
