West is a great spot, whether
West is a great spot, whether you are working downtown and are looking for a quick lunch (they have a guaranteed "ready in 20 minutes or less" lunch menu for those in a hurry), or a fun nightclub on the weekend (try the rooftop in the summer time - it's complete with a bar and a DJ!) They also have private rooms / areas if you have a large group. In general the food is pretty good. They are also very accommodating with food allergies.

Great place to eat lunch DT
I brought my clients to WEST for lunch this week and was very impressed. Our server was refiling drinks before we could ask and was very friendly, the food was delicous and the perfect size, gluten free options were readily availble and we were out of there within 1 hour. Thank you for the great experince.

Sunny Patio Escape
Great lunch on a sunny Calgary patio without distracting passers-by. The WEST rooftop location is a relaxing place for lunch. We found the service quick and the food - excellent. I was a little disappointed that I could no longer get a burger on my gluten free bun (new recipe, meat has wheat?). However, the chicken club option worked just as well; especially when paired with a yummy gazpcho!

West has one of the best patios in all of Calgary I think! Really enjoyed the food and service. The view and outdoor ambiance is unique and wonderful. They have heat lamps for slightly cooler weather to keep you warm!

Great Rooftop Patio
West is a little tricky to find if you've never been before, but the rooftop patio is awesome for somewhere in the core of downtown Calgary.

We went on a Thursday evening. It was 1/2 price bottles of wine as well a appies. We hoped it would turn into the nightclub, but was pretty empty. Food and wine were good.

Atmosphere and Service
The atmosphere at the restaurant was cool and relaxing while the service staff were extremely friendly, out-going and they really cared about the clients. Food was served on time. Oh, ...and the booking time was very flexible.

Top of the Bay!
I really enjoy the outdoor patio atmosphere. Not many others have it. And the pretty waitresses don't hurt

I have been on the patio before,
I have been on the patio before, and would have like to have been this time also but it wasn't open. when I have been there in the eveingings I would say the patio is the best place to be as the inside was not the vibrant bar scene one would expect

Hard to find as we all got
Hard to find as we all got lost getting there. Sign says second level but it's actually third level of Scotia. When entering on third level, no one was there at all on the whole floor so I wasn't sure where I was going!
Once I got to patio, excellent greeting and seating. Service was above expectations. Food was fantastic!
It's such a beautiful location and we all agreed it would be so nice to see some greenery up there. Maybe some potted trees, arbours, flowers, etc....
I'll definitely return.

The food was tasty, but it did take quite a while for it to come. When you are on a tight one hour lunch, and at a less busy time for the restaurant, it would be nice to get quicker service. Otherwise, our server was polite and pleasant. One other comment, I realize that generally female servers/hostesses receive a better tip from male customers when they dress in a more revealing way. As a woman, not so comfortable. A bit more modesty in the way the female servers/hostesses dress would be nice. The male servers don't even wear shorts or short sleeved shirts.

Excellent rooftop patio. Could use a few extra umbrellas on the sunny hot days but still good.
Fast delivery of food.

Nice spot for business lunch
Had lunch with a business associate and sat in the rooftop patio. The service was friendly and well paced and the view was very nice. There was a pleasant ambiance, not too noisy and not too busy (60% full). The food was pretty good but the caesar salad was quite bland. I will definitely return as the menu had a lot of variety to offer.

My Server Ryan was AMAZING!!!
My Server Ryan was AMAZING!!!
He was polite, funny and always had a smile on his face. I can't wait for the next oppurtunity to come back. your Butternut squash soup was to die for.
Thank you again for being such a great help

A group of 4-6 friends meet
A group of 4-6 friends meet every month or so to catch up with each other over the lunch period. The West has lots of quiet little spaces and lots of room to do that. We like to try new places but I think we'll come back here.

We enjoyed the West restaurant for lunch. The food was very good, and their menu had some quick lunches - 40 minutes - which were very good. Service was great, and the decor was appealing and comfortable. I'd go again!
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
It would be so nice if you could access this restaurant from the street. Abit wierd to have to walk through the mall.

WEST always delivers
This is one of my favourite restaurants for lunch and catering events!

Our Server was new but she
Our Server was new but she was very good at trying to find out the answers to our querstions. The food was better than expected....both our dishes were very good. We would go back again.

Busy lunch spot
Food took a while to arrive but was delicious. The chicken cutlet and the curry pot pie was great!

Polite and Professional
I used to think of West as a sports bar. After yesterdays dining experience, I will be more inclined to take clients to this restaurant. The host(s) were pleasant and efficient. The server, Sam, was attentive and did not interrupt the flow of the lunch hour conversation. The menu had a good variety of selections that interested me and the Chicken Pot Pie that I selected was memorable for the phyllo pastry stick that came with it...as well as a tangy lime taste.

Very good lunch, you can enjoy visiting cause it was not loud.

Girls dinner and drinks
We have all been here a couple of times before but 6 of us went for dinner and drinks on a Wednesday night and had a great experience. Te server was attentive and pleasant, the ambiance was nice, not very busy in there, and the food was great! We had all had larger lunches so opted for mostly soups and salads and all were very good. I had the pumpkin & buternut squash soup and it was to die for and the house salad which was delish. They also had $5 glasses of 1 white and 1 red wine which was great. Definitely recommend.

Great lunch spot
Quick service and a fantastic steak sandwich -- the cut was more like a flilet mignon!
