    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 10/12/2012
    We were looking for a local restaurant to visit while in Gilroy. We decided on the West Side Grill. We couldn't have made a better choice! We arrived about 30 minutes early so that we could have a drink at the bar! The bartenders were friendly and made us feel welcome! Upon being seated, our waiter was attentive, and very friendly and was able to make recommendations and tell us his favorites. He also let me personalize my dinner. There is no describing the food that we ate. From the drunkin clams to the steak to the linguini with clams, to the flan for desert!!!! Everything was out of this world. We can't wait to go through Gilroy again to visit. Don't miss out on this wonderful representation of the garlic capital of the world!!!!

    Food was great! Server took awhile to come to our table after being seated and it did not look very busy in there. After finally coming over, service was good, but not great. Bar was extremely loud making it hard to talk to my wife as we ate and staff did not seem to do anything about it as it kept happening.

    I had never been to this restaraunt before and my daughter recommended it-We had 14 people for a rehersal dinner and I was very impressed! We were seated promptly, the service was attentive and detail oriented. The food was wonderfully delicious and for a very reasonable price. All were very impressed, we were relieved at the ease of everything from the reservation-making to settlement of the bill.

  • Not What It Seems
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 5/18/2012
    We were there for my rehearsal dinner, was told this was a neighborhood gem and had great food. Made reservations months in advanced just so we could fit all 18 of us. I was not very happy with the service right from the beginning. it was awhile before we were greeted, then when we were at it look almost 20 minutes before menus were given out. Choices were fair and seemed promising; however the food was not what I was held to believe. One of our guests dishes were give to another table so they hurried and remade her dish but it was rare when she specifically stated well-done. At this point the sever was rude and said "it would have been fine because it wasn't that pink." I was not happy with the service my family got.

    What a great place for lunch! Prices were VERY reasonable, food was good, and portion sizes were sufficient. Although I wouldn't drive all the way to Gilroy just to eat at the West Side Grill (we live about 2 hours north of Gilroy), I will definitely go back their again when we go to the factory outlet stores.

    The food is outstanding. The drunken clams were flavorful and clean, i.e. no grit. The server only asked us if we wanted bread after we were almost done with the clams. But definitely get the bread, it's warm, inviting and melts in your mouth. The only miss was the lobster bisque, it's almost too creamy and needed more seasoning. But my scallops were perfectly cooked and seasoned. The pork chops (special of the day) were juicy, although one chop was over cooked and a little dry. The glaze on the chops was the perfect touch. Service could be a little slow and spotty but we'll definitely come back for the food.

    I thought the food was fantastic.. they have a tempura green bean appetizer that is soooo good. main course was pasta pomodoro and my wife had the prime rib both were excellent. the only improvement they could make is they need to put a divider up between the dining room and the bar to cut down on the noise. a little frosted glass or something. but i would definitely recommend.

    Overall very good service and good food. Ambiance could have been nicer -- the closeness of the bar to the main dining area made conversation and general dining room environment loud and less comfortable than we would have liked for this class of restaurant. At the very least they may want to turn down the volume of the music and TV screens from the bar.

    The food was not the best we have ever had, but definitely the best in Gilroy. Seven scallops were a surprise when most restaurants typically give you 3-4. The crab and shrimp sandwich was great, as we're the crab raviolis. The halibut was nothing to write home about. The lobster bisque was a bit salty but otherwise excellent. Service was surprisingly good for a Christmas Eve. We will definitely be back to this rare upscale restaurant in Gilroy.

    Tonight we arrived to be greeted with open arms by Robert, one of the partners who was happy to see I had made my reservations on Open Table. We were seated in a comfortable and cozy booth and he immediately took our drink orders. I had discovered Espresso Martinis in Newport Beach and was craving one. The bartender did a great job on making one and it was everything I had hoped for. We started with a coconut shrimp with Asian plum sauce appetizer which was wonderful. My wife commented she could make that her entire meal! Next, I had the clam chowder and my wife had the lobster bisque. Both were absolutely outstanding! We eagerly shared with each other! We both decided on one of the "specials".. Osso Bucco. I had it with mashed

    Starters came out 15 minutes apart, rather than together as you would expect. Server took away cutlery, and didn't return with new. Everyone else got bread, we didn't. Food was not hot, but instead just warm. Manager came over and asked how the starter was, we told him we'd only got one instead of the more customary two, he didn't seem like he wanted to hear that and just walked off. It's overpriced, for what it is.
