    The Dj had the volume up. For a bar that may be OK, for a restaurant it is not! We couldn't talk. The food was good, the portions large, the price modest.

    The staff were friendly and the food was served timely but left a lot to desire taste wise. I ordered a codfish dish which was overcooked but eatable. My friend enjoyed her chicken kabob entree. There was a good cocktail list and the drinks were tasty. Not certain I would visit again.

    I ate here with my daughter and 4 of her friends during Loyola's family weekend. If it wasn't for Open Table, we would never have known about the restaurant, but we will definitely be back again. There was something on the menu to please everyone from salads and burgers to much more elaborate meals. The atmosphere was very warm and welcoming. It seemed comfortable for large parties and couples all at the same time. The service was great - prompt but not rushed. The valet was a nice touch. We all loved our meals - a very nice neighborhood spot!

    For the price, food was pretty good with lots of options on the menu. Ambiance is nice, but looks more oriented towards night club vibe. Waited quite awhile for bread, but the server was quite courteous and attentive afterwards. Drinks were good but not impressive for the price.

    I can't believe I've never been to 7 West Bistro before - found it during a restaurant week search. Food was delicious, generous portions, nice open atmosphere. Nice mix of mediterranean, seafood and variety of other dishes. We will definitely go back again on date night or with family.

    This is the second time I have had a terrible meal at 7 West. Sauce smothered the hanger steak was over salted, the chicken parmesan was sized for a giant. The waiter was inattentive and screwed up our delivery of food. It is sad that this resto had so much potential and it is now a bar with so-so food. Obviously I don't plan on going back.

    I found this place during restaurant week. Great choice. The place is bigger on the inside than the outside. The server was polite, courtesy and on point. The drink and appetizer specials for happy were nicely prices. The food was made to order, hot and very good. I had the fried shrimp and cod for appetizer and Greek chicken for the main course both were good. The portions are pretty big and worth the price. I had to get a doggie bag. I will definitely be back.

    First time at the restaurant. Saw great reviews. The appetizers were wonderful. Unfortunately the main courses (we both had pita wraps) were way too full of filler and had too little of the meat that we ordered. I like tzatiki (pardon the spelling) but I didn't order a tzatiki wrap with a bit of gyro, I ordered the opposite. That made for a somewhat disappointing meal.

    First visit to 7 West to celebrate our anniversary. While less fancy then our usual choices we were very happy with our choice. The spinach dip was delicious. Great Martini selection. I had the lamb shank, which was on special and it was incredibly tender and delicious - no knife needed. Our server was very attentive and kept our drinks and water filled. My husbands ribs were also extremely tender but too saucy for my preference. Side dishes were really good - roasted potatoes and stewed green beans very good. Overall we loved our experience at 7 West and will return.

    7 West is trying to be something and not quite making the mark. To start the decor is truly awkward, it's like trying to put my Russian Grandma's fancy living room in a warehouse style wide open restaurant. They could do with some modernizing and playing to the open ceiling with a more abstract decor. The service was good, attentive and friendly. Food was ok, I asked about the ravioli and it's frozen, the Chicken Souvlaki was bland but it wasn't bad. We had just hoped for more! My husbands steak salad was great, well seasoned and beautiful and fresh. We would go again but chooses menu items carefully.

    I frequently visit 7 West as I enjoy the scenery and great food and drink specials. The half-price appetizers anywhere in the restaurant are a big hit for me and the service is always A1. The manager is always around and often stops by to say hello. They also have complimentary photos to highlight your experience. Love this place!

    A great choice with consistently good food. Our waiter was great. Their menu takes care of all eating preferences, vegan, veg, g/f. After a little confusion with our reservation, an appetizer was comped (really no need, but a nice gesture) and the rest of the dinner was great. We would definitely go back again. My husband loves the lamb chops.

    Met up with family (all of us out of state) & found this delightful gem! Couldn't believe the overall value from the valet parking right down to dessert! Definitely a surprise to find such fabulous cuisine at such affordable prices especially in the DC/Metro area! The Mediterranean salad was perfectly Greek-not a lettuce leaf to be found: bravo! The crab dip delicious & a wonderful example for any proud Marylander! The roasted eggplant dip simply splendid! The Santorini-style shrimp/pasta dish overwhelming with prawns & such flavor! The lamb-chops simply bone-suckling yummy! And I've never seen such a large "petite" crab cake! If we only lived closer than 3-1/2 hours away we'd be there EVERY week! Can't wait to find an excuse to RETURN!

    We came back to Baltimore to visit and knew we wanted this restaurant again. It did not disappoint. The service was very good and the meals were delicious. The crab ravioli was very tasty, the cream sauce, while delicious, may be a bit heavy for some. Hamburgers always a success, salads delicious and the wine and bear selections were perfect. Love the hummus and falafel appetisers. Overall, a solid performer and easy to make reservations via open table. Will go here again and again. My only recommendation is perhaps to have salads included with the entrees.

    The choices of food are broad enough to allow groups to find the tasty treat they prefer with Mediterranean flavor. The quality of the food was delicious. One of our guest's comments on the spinach ravioli was it could be more flavorful with spinach mixed WITHIN the ravioli cheese and not just in the pasta. Service was comfortably attentive. Definitely a nice place to visit for brunch after church.

    We were in town visiting our son in college. I found 7 West on the internet and liked the menu, reviews & pictures. They did not dissapoint! We were seated promptly, the food was really good. We were eating lighter fare, appetizers and burgers, but they were great, ample portions and high quality. Beer selection was good. An added bonus, live music on a Friday night! We didn't stay after we ate, but it looked like the bar was getting crowded and there was room for dancing to the music, so I would say if we were not tired from the 7 hour drive, we would have stayed and hung out longer. I will definately go back again.
