Good service.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe clean plate club unites!i love Ouest because of the flavors presented in every dish. They are a step above in every way. If licking the plate was socially acceptable, I would do it!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat is always delicious?The rack of lamb is unfailingly delicious, cooked to perfection; couple the lamb with haricot verts, and add a simple salad beforehand with a little warm bread--a perfect meal!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dining!We enjoyed the entire experience!

A visit to the City would not be complete without a stop at Ouest. For me the meal must include a Ouest martini and the smoked sturgeon appetizer. Their consistency and quality are outstanding.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBigger than it looks on the outsideWe were a family gathering and everyone liked their food.

The service was attentive but the main course was slow arriving. Very nice ambience.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOuest is one of the best placesOuest is one of the best places to dine in NYC period. Food amazing; service top notch; wine list excellent. To have that caliber dining experience on the UWS is wonderful. You can use it for a special occasion of course - but it also plays perfectly for a great week night outing w/ friends or family. It is that versatile. A real gem.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMHave been to Ouest many timesHave been to Ouest many times and it is always first rate. I especially like the way they prepare meat. It is the only place to get a proper hanger steak. The service is always good and usually helpful. Don't think I've ever been seriously disappointed with this restaurant.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMuffins and scones were delicious.Muffins and scones were delicious. Great start. The crispy fried poached eggs with smoked duck were outstanding.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was wonderful to find aIt was wonderful to find a place that is not noisy. The food was very good. I had the trout which was delicious. My friends had the halibut and enjoyed that, too. The beet salad could have had more goat cheese, but other than that, we really enjoyed our dinner.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOuest is the best! They graciouslyOuest is the best!

Everything is excellent!!!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe unassuming facade of thisThe unassuming facade of this upper west side gem belies the experience just inside the door. Old world styling with dark wood paneling, red leather booths, and soft lighting set the tone for a peaceful dining experience. The menu offerings are creative and delicious with an appealing and fresh presentation. While portions were not large, they are adequate. Likewise, service was not particularly attentive, but we the staff were unobtrusive and we were not rushed. The setting was perfect for Sunday brunch with our family of five, including three teenagers. We would return.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food here is fantastic.The food here is fantastic. We went for brunch and the booths and tables are a great size for groups. Definitely come here hungry because the brunch deal includes 2 courses and the portions are very large. The only downside is the deal doesn't include drinks.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a treat ! The food isWhat a treat ! The food is amazing and the service so
Friendly and accommodating.
Looking forward to returning!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMStill the best on the UpperStill the best on the Upper westside. Just the right level of attention from the waitstaff and the chef's casual quality of offering meatloaf and rack of lamb on the same menu; something for every taste... but yet tasteful in decor and to the palate.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI was afraid the restaurantI was afraid the restaurant would be stuffy, but the waitstaff and hostess were very down to earth and easy going. I didn't feel pressured and my waiter wasn't snobby and was polite. The food was very good, and interesting. Creative. Overall: would definitely come again.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were really first rate - the only downside is that we were by a window and I was freezing the entire meal!
I had the halibut and it was perfectly cooked.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious brunch. Unique itemsDelicious brunch. Unique items all of which were excellently prepared w fresh ingredients3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat upper Westside restaurant.Nice restaurant with great staff. Interesting menu that varies with seasons. Ravioli pasta is excellent.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful dinner and decor!Truly enjoyed dinner - favorite dish was the salmon gravlax appetizer (would return just for that!). The trout was served cut into 3 pieces - have never seen it presented that way - tasted quite good but, for me, visually it was lacking. Wine list was sufficient if not exciting - drinks were good. Service was effcient- water glasses refilled promptly - wait staff wasn't as warm or engaging as they might have been - seemed disinterested, but still pleasant and got the job done. Loved the feel of the room - big rounded red leather booths - warm and inviting - noise level robust, but didn't interfere w/conversation. I would recommend sitting in the lower, main level room versus the upstairs dining rooms. Overall, very good meal - would return3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA UP WEST SIDE BEST . . .OUEST HAS BEEN CONSISTENTLY A VERY GOOD , AND MANY TIMES AN EXCELLENT RESTAURANT ...
IT IS A FAVOR OF MINE , SPECIALLY FOR THE AMAZINGLY FRIENDLY SERVICE... FROM THE DOOR TO THE DINNING AREA WHERE THE MAGIC ALWAYS HAPPENS ...
A NEW YORK TREASURE .....3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFound Quest on Trip Advisor.Found Quest on Trip Advisor. Good fit for pre theatre dinner. We had a very accommodating waiter who served us in an efficient manner. Food was quite good. I had the snails, was disappointed it was nestled in a puff pastry which was delicious but reduced the need for a more sizable portion. My halibut was very tasty as was dessert. The only negative was a light surreptitious spray of water from an unknown source which turned out to be from a little boy's water gun! Disconcerting but only because his parents were not aware, and they were sitting right next to him!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
