Great place for a dining experience
The minute you step into the hotel, you're transported into a mini Versailles...lovely serene atmosphere and beautiful furnishings etc in the lobby. The restaurant itself is tucked away in the back and is truly a "hidden gem". Beautiful table setting (real flowers, tablecloths) old school service (refined, very attentive but not stuffy) and the food is great. Our lunch trio ordered the Monte Cristo (what?!?...when do you ever see that on a menu anymore?) the vegetarian sandwich, and the shrimp club...all were prepared perfectly and all very tasty. There are TONS of places to eat downtown, but this is a little bit of paradise in the 92101 jungle of restaurants!

We always enjoy the Westgate.
We always enjoy the Westgate. We go there prior to the opera on Tuesday evenings, and we always enjoy the convenience to the opera, the food, and the service. We are never disappointed.

The menu had new items. Both
The menu had new items. Both the seafood chowder and the seafood risotto were very good. Although the risotto had more of a polenta consistency, it was well presented and prepared and I liked the taste. Service, however, was not up to par. As a result, we had to skip dessert and were almost late for the opera.

FINEST FOOD IN SAN DIEGO
An absolute must for those that want to have a great dinner prior to a CIVIC CENTER show. (its right across the street!) A bit pricey but worth every dime. This is not our first visit and wont be the last. Tenderloin Is a melt in your mouth delight. Try the appetizer Mozzarella Di Bufalo with Parmesan ice cream!!!

We had dinner from the Broadway 3 course menu before catching a show. The food was really good, the service was excellent and we completely enjoyed and were out on time to catch our show. Thanks for helping make for a great evening. Highly recommended for couple and groups.

Another great dinner
Westgate did it again! Superb service, great food and a very classy ambience. It continues to be the place to dine when going to the nearby CIVIC Theater..
My thanks to Roberto and the staff

Wonderful restaurant, no one dining
I went last night on the first night of Restaurant Week to get a taste of the Westgate. I wanted to bring my wife to a romantic beautiful setting where she spent her last few days as a bachelorette before our wedding. We got dressed up, made it for our 7:30 Sunday reservation to find there was literally not a soul in the entire dining room. I know the Westgate is no trendy "hotspot" but our entire meal was spent in whispers as we waited for something to break the silence that never came. With a warm host we finally relaxed a little near the end. Service couldn't have been better - we were left alone as much as possible. Beautiful dining room and pleasant hosts made the ambience bearable, but it was an unexpected disappointment to be alone.

Great dining before a show!
This is a great place to have an amazing dinner and walk to show at civic theatre.
Kitchen is a little slow, but worth it, so give yourself plenty of time.

We had a delight lunch, great ambiance, and personable staff. We enjoyed a delicious Seafood Cobb Salad, and a Chicken Cobb Salad, for our Birthday celebration, before going to see "Priscilla Queen of the Desert"!
