The best ever
Best food ever. Service was outstanding. We were made to feel very comfortable and able to sit and talk. This place will be a regular for me.

Wow! Had a great time at Westcafe
Wow! Had a great time at Westcafe last night. I was impressed with the meatloaf dinner, while my wife savored the chilled gazpacho with shrimp, followed by a thin crust pizza topped with fresh veggies and goat cheese. Entertainment by a group of young jazz musicians who called themselves "Plan B" was a pleasant surprise on a Thursday night. Staff was top notch and managed the energetic crowd with ease. I highly recommend Westcafe.

Excellent restaurant where
Excellent restaurant where quality of food matches quality of service. Quite rare these days! To be recommended as few places are open downtown for a good lunch! Parking relatively easy. Thumb up!

Great Food, Great People
I meet a friend for lunch and not only was the food awesome the service was impeccable. We talked for hours and never felt rushed (no one was waiting for our table). I had requested a corner table in the reservation (for privacy) and that was exactly what we got.

The place to have lunch or
The place to have lunch or dinner in the neighborhood. Again, the quality of service matches the quality of the food. Reservations are a good idea: the place is popular!

Great neighborhood spot
I and a friend were there to listen to the jazz that they offer on Thursday evening. The food was very good as was the music. The service was a little slow but we were not in a hurry so it made no difference. The prices are very reasonable for what you receive.

Great before a concert
I called ahead that evening as my friend and I were on a very short time leash. We weren't able to get to West Cafe until 6:00 PM and needed to be out the door for a concert by 7:00. Our server suggested we order from the bar menu (which is quite extensive) and WOW it was very fast and delicious!!

Great food and service!
This was my first dining experience at West Cafe. I met a friend for lunch prior to going to
Washington park Rose Gardens. A varied selection on the menu. Our entrees were delicious. The highlight was
Their bread pudding which we shared and savored every bite!
We will be back.

A nice surprise
My Husband and I found this restaurant on Open Table and decided to give it a try for our 1st anniversary weekend. The pecorino romano toast is amazing. I had the goat cheese tart as a starter, which was a little chilled by the time it got to our table. The mac and cheese is a nice find, though the fried onions reminded me of something that came out of a can. The rotating wine selection is great!

My favorite place
My whole family loves the West Cafe. It's a wonderful little restaurant that has food like you would find in "New York" or "Seattle".
I love there Sunday Brunch but anytime is wonderful. The service is friendly and helpful. If you go for the first time don't go without having the Key Lime Pie, Connie makes it there and it's to "die for", it melts in your mouth.
All the food is so good. The soups are delicious....every thing is good.

West Cafe' is a GEM!
We love this place for dinner! The food is of exceptional quality, and the service, venue, and live music make this one of our favorite places. They also have a nice Happy Hour menu (4-8PM), and the food/wine prices are very reasonable. They have live jazz music (no cover) that really makes this place special. They are on 12th and Jefferson so parking is plentiful and easy.
I highly recommend!

A good range of choices offered on the weekend brunch menu, not the usual boring stuff.
If you are downtown and want a decent, non-chain breakfast/brunch, this is a good choice.

Like smooth music while dining?
After seven years, this restaurant still provides a great dining experience on the friendly neighborhood level, with exceptional live music on Saturday evenings. The owners are consistently present, attending to customers' service and requests, and they always hire terrific people to provide consistently lovely service. Recent additions include some gluten-free or reduced options, but the mainstays are the fresh greens and carefully prepared meat entrees.

We love West Cafe and go there
We love West Cafe and go there regularly. This time I had a group of 8. The food and service is exceptional, as is the live Jazz music (which is not loud and overbearing). They also have a nice Happy Hour menu, and parking by 12th and Jefferson is easy. Highly recommend West Cafe'!!

ROMEOs dine out
Once each month our group of retired music professors from Portland State University have lunch at a local restaurant. We feel that West Cafe is a perfect place to congregate as the food is always great as is the wait staff -- especially the wait staff! They are all very attentive and explain the dishes perfectly so we know exactly what we are ordering. Our coffee cups are refilled without our having to flag the waiters down. Every part of our experiences at your restaurant have been A+. We will look forward to returning soon after the first of the year. Happy Holidays to you all.

quiet and comfortable
The lamb was excellent and the ambiance low key and pleasant. The service is prompt and intelligent.This is a good place for a meal with conversation.
