    Great vibe and energy to the place, and the decor is very cool in my view. Food was exceptional and the fish was especially good. Great for sharing. Our service was excellent...on the ball, knowledgable about the menu and made great recommendations. Will definitely make it a regular spot. Never once did I have to wait for another drink or condiments etc...very efficient service.

    great atmosphere..and music, if you like your saloons to get the led out (zeppelin) Great sharing menu, i have to reccommend the fried chicken and biscuits, i think it is called hen and biscuits. Everyone agreed at my table, the burger was top drawer. The only thing i would say about the service, was it was a little overkill. I was getting the impression they were rushing us out of there. We were asked by several servers if we were finished, when our plates still had food on it. They were taking them away while you were still eating. This happened throughout the meal, and we weren't by any means lingering. I found out from a door man when we were leaving that they were closing later for a private party - 2 hrs from the time we left.

    We were completely disappointed in Weslodge. The food was, at best, slightly better than average. The server told us, as the menu stated, that the dishes were designed for sharing. This may be true for a a party of anorexics, but the portion sizes were quite small, and the 'small shares' were no more than meager 1st courses. The 'large shares' were small mains and sides were additional. Split amongst 3 people, we barely had enough to provide a small taste. Nothing stood out in any way. It was quite noisy, although it was not a full house, but this is the norm these days.

    The service was amazing and helpful, the food was fantastic, and the drinks were great! The slo summer tastes like a spa and the sweet ice tea is delicious. The scotch egg is amazing...everything was amazing; order the whole menu. Well worth it! Can't wait to go back.

  • Not again!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/1/2014
    I ordered, I told my waiter specifically to have the pulled pork on a side dish as I cannot have pork. Everything else on the platter seemed fine, including the duck sausage and the mac n cheese. The waiter said this was no problem. As soon as the food was placed on our table, the waiter tells me that I cannot have the duck sausage as it is encased in a pork skin, and I cannot have the mac n cheese as it has a bacon creme on top that 'we cannot make it without'. Well buddy, if you had told me this when I was placing my order, me and my partner would have ordered something else instead of paying $29 for a platter full of things I could not eat! What was crazy was he said that and just left without asking me if I was fine with this.

    Great saloon. Food is meant to be pared with Saloon style drinks. We had the two award winning cocktails, Bluth and Orange Spiced Old Fashion. The Scotch Egg was small, tasty and crisp on the outside. sausage plate was interesting. Different types of sausage with home made compliments loved it. The burger was not huge and fry portion small, but every bite was an experience so much Flavour. The Austrailian Wagyu was outstanding. Tender, flavorful. This is a restaurant that is concerned about how each and every part of the dish is put together. No detail too small. Even the ketchup is made in house. The environment is young, loud and full of energy. Out waiter Noah was attentive, humorous and informative.

    The menu was over priced for the portion size and quality of food. Claimed they were sharing plates but at $20 a plate thats just insane to order multiple- ordered the dumplings came with lots of sauce and 3 pieces. Even the drinks were unreasonably priced... Would not recomend to friends.

    Went for summerlicious to try Westlodge for the first time. The service was amazing - 2 managers came to check on our table during our meal. We were a table of 4 - several waiters brought us our dishes to ensure we were all served at the same time. Food was delicious. Despite a couple of little things, we thought this place was fantastic and are happy to have this in our neighbourhood.

    I had heard great things about Weslodge. So I organized a group of us to head down for dinner. The room was bueatiful and the service was great. I loved being by the kitchen as well - lots of entertainment. I started off with a fantastic old fashion all be it over priced but to be expected in a place like Weslodge. All that being said we went there for the food and I left disappointed and hungery. The Salmon Tartare was bland at best. Everyone that had the Tartare agreed. The general concenus was that the Scotch egg was good. The beef checks were just OK but my portion was so small I had two forks and that was it. Dessert was delicious but it is sad when you spend $140 on food and drinks and then have to go for dinner somewhere else.

    Small portions of mediocre food paired with overpriced wine. Yes it was summerlicious but I thought that's supposed to make you want to return. Not in this case. $13 for a glass of wine whose bottle is only $15. Would have been okay if food was good - but it wasn't. We had another meal after and we're both small girls.....

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 7/8/2014
    Girls Night. Walking in, the host & sitting down, the service was wonderful. As I sat down with my other two friends (already seated) our server was 'rushed.' In a nutshell we had rushed through our entire meal. There were no tables after us and there were empty tables around us. While we were eatting desert--our server decided it was time for the bill--We had not even finished our course; we paid. We waited for a friend who was coming to eat late. We waited 20minutes, never saw the server again or asked if we wanted to get a drink while we waited. In the end the food (as delicious as it was) did not triumph over the mediocre service we received. We went somewhere else for drinks and second dinner. Too bad since I loved Patria.

    Weslodge is a great place. I went there many times and the food is always great. You should have lucky to reserve a table via open table. Don't try to call them. Usually is an answering machine. My advise is reserve in advance.

    Ive been here before and had the Lamb and it was wonderful. I recently went for Summerlicious and was hoping for the same satisfaction, but unfortunately not. The quality of the food is top notch, but the portions, even for Summerlicious, are extremely small. Starter I had the scotch egg, which I new would be small as Ive had it before but the main course was the smallest bit of Braised Beef Cheek you could imagine. We each had one drink each and the $35 menu and our final bill came out to $135 all in. For this Id expect to at least be full. Recommend this Summerlicious menu for someone that is looking to excite the taste buds, but don't expect to leave with a full belly

    Enthusiastic staff made great recommendations and took good care of our group. Food was all good, but some were definitely better than others. Those that impressed really blew us out of the water. Evening slightly marred by the market price of the lamp chop special (5 chops) being $62; I wish out waiter had disclosed to us earlier.

    I was slightly hesitant to try WS for dinner but had been there twice for drinks and found the menu enticing. I was not disappointed. Their cocktails were delicious; as were their great wine offerings. The food was equally good: namely, the ceviche was well prepared and their (whole organic) glazed chicken (for two) was delicious. All of the staff (not just our great server) were friendly and attentive; even accommodating a seating request made via my on-line booking. Clearly this hip "saloon" is capitalizing on the young, King West scene but they pull it off in a rare moment of "not trying too hard" - i.e., their trendy vibe compliments but does not eclipse the fact that they are putting out great food. I would not hesitate returning.

    This was my first visit to Weslodge and it was on a Monday. To be perfectly honest, I was expecting it to be a bit boring and the staff to be distracted/bored as well. I was in for a pleasant surprise as the staff were great - very friendly and attentive! The food was fantastic - my friend and I ordered a couple of small shares and one large share (under the advice of our server). The food was delicious, presented very well and delivered quite quickly. The atmosphere of the restaurant is really inviting & makes it easy to chat. I was also beyond surprised to find the place very lively for a Monday. By the time my friend & I left, the place was almost fully packed. A very cool place - I will definitely be back!!

    The room is very well Art Directed to feel as though one has just entered the gentleman's hunting lodge in downtown Manhattan. The wait staff were pleasant, almost "sophisticated" in their knowledge of the menu. They had manners consistent with the art direction of the room - gentlemen's gentlemen. It occurs to me in writing this that the place skews very male, for better or worse. Food was excellent, prices fair.

The food is meant to be shared, though I thought the portions were a bit small for sharing (so we just ordered extra). Overall great experience and I will definitely come back again.
