    WestEast is one of those rare finds in our neighborhood. My husband, daughter and myself have dined here since they've opened. We've seen them change and grow. Throughout out it all the food and service has ALWAYS been unique, delish and fabulous! From the exotic flavors to the fresh proteins and greens....it leaves your pallet wanting more! Oh... and we can't forget their desert menu....there's something tasteful for everyone. Thank you WestEast for your service!

    Finally made our way to Hicksville to try this place that I've heard/read so much about. It was worth the trip and we will def be back! Delicious food, great service and a lovely space! Their dedication to using natural, organic & non-gmo ingredients (and doing it well!) is so important and I hope they inspire others to follow. A great addition to the Long Island dining scene.

    This was my second time to this restaurant and it was excellent for the second time. only fresh natural ingredients are used. Our server was pleasant and attentive, owner chef visited our table to make sure we were satisfied. We were a foursome and we ordered many dishes and shared them. Scallops were sweet and cooked to perfection. Lobster mac and cheese was creamy and delicious. Spicy shrimp were cooked perfectly, steak was tender. Warm chocolate cake with ice cream, did not disappoint. I recommended this restaurant to 2 other people, and both say they will return, I will also.

    Everything was perfect. Service and food was excellent. The mango martini was made perfectly. I really love the art work that adorns the walls of this very different restaurant. I'm impressed with the fact that local and organic foods are used for every dish made. This is important to me. This is a great concept!

    Was so glad to be at a restaurant that is totally organic and doesn't serve soda!! That is radical!! The food was very good, and with different tastes, not the usual seasonings. Our waiter was friendly and competent.

    It doesn't feel like a professional eatery. The owners and their family (kids) were hanging out and easily identifiable, which felt unprofessional. There were two high-school- or college-aged kids serving as the entire busyboy/waitstaff, with the owners occasionally helping, but mostly they just sat around. Food came out within an appropriate amount of time after ordering (and was delicious), but we consistently found ourselves sitting around waiting (to order, to see a dessert menu, to tell them we weren't interested in dessert, to get the check, and to pay with credit card). To their credit, everyone was extremely friendly, nice, polite, and considerate.

  • Poor choice
    MarcoVIP
    Dined on 8/17/2014
    Waste of time and money. It took 35 minutes to get our salads. The watermellon cubes served in a martini glass was ok but rediculously priced at $9.00. It took another half hour to get our main course. It took 3 requests to get water refill. The serving size is much too small for the price. The food is decent but not worth the poor service and high prices. The final blow was waiting 15 minutes for a $3.00 cup of coffee. Will not be returning.

    This has become our favorite restaurant, bar none. The food is outstanding, all organic, but not at organic prices. Service is terrific, they really go out of their way to make you feel special, and accommodate most requests. Music is great, if sometimes a little on the loud side due to the relatively small size of the restaurant. we made a reservation for 12, they accommodated us with no problem. Highly recommended!

    Food was good, small portions, over priced. No specials offered to me unless I asked about it. No substitutions offered to accommodate my diabetes, unless charged extra. Server was friendly but overwhelmed, skipped dessert because the service was so slow got tired of sitting there & just wanted to leave. Used to be one of my favorite restaurants but it has changed, probably will not return.

    Went on a date here. Ordered drinks and apps as meals, like tapas. Really good food, the green beans, the shrimp the sliders, all real good. Only remark on the shrimp was that we ordered them twice, because we likely them so much, but they were a bit less than hot when served. Great craft beer list and good mixed drinks. We'll be back.

    ins4meVIP
    Dined on 7/11/2014
    The location of this restaurant is a bit "hidden" - it is in a mostly industrial area and hidden within a strip mall. First impressions indicated that the restaurant would not be crowded, based on a mostly empty parking lot (balance of the businesses in the strip mall were closed). We were seated promptly and saw there was only one other occupied table. (Our seating was at 6:30p). The food was outstanding - very fresh ingredients. I follow a gluten-free diet and was very pleased that I did not have to ask for a separate menu - gf items are clearly marked. Nice kids menu, too. I would, however, note that the restaurant is expensive and this would probably discourage me from adding this spot to our regular restaurant rotation.

    I feel bad knocking this restaurant, others may love it. It is not the type of place we usually go. The portions were small and pricey and took forever to be served. In their defense the steak my husband had was tender and tasty. I had scallops which were good but they were on top of mashed cauliflower which was in our opinion gross.

    I had been to West East Bistro for a networking event and had the opportunity to try some of the food. Everything was so wonderful that I went back yesterday with my family. We are all making a strong attempt to eat healthier, and still enjoy tasty and varied meals. West East certainly fulfilled those needs! The meals are very unique, spices perfectly executed, and the choices are unlike so many other restaurants in my area. The paintings on the walls are beautiful and eye-catching, and we found ourselves continually looking at them and talking about them. They have recently decided not to sell soda, and I applaud them for it. Take your family - you will be very happy that you did.

    What can I say that I have not said before. The food is great, the wine list is good, well stocked bar, and now they are serving a juice bar instead of soda, which is great. You must try them all. If you like spicy, try the bang bang shrimp and/or the gumbo. If you are into just appetizers, try them all, I did! The decor is nice and the paintings are fantastic. See if you can name them all. Bet you can't.

    It was one of my worst experience dinning out! It took 15 minutes before somebody even acknowledge us after we we're seated. The waiter who never introduced himself was so inexperience and didn't look like he was old enough to work there. When we finally got our appetizers the jay's pot sticklers were hard on the outside (almost like the were frozen first) and the filling was just ok. The tuna tartare was all vegetables and onions with very little tuna. My husband ordered the duck which was good but not great and I had the scallops with a cauliflower purée wasn't impressed. The cauliflower purée was flavorless. I was very excited to try this restaurant since it got great reviews but was extremely disappointed! Music was the only good thing

    We had a nice dinner at West East Bistro. We ordered drinks soon after we were seated, but it took a long time for them to arrive. Also, one of the ordered beers from the menu was not available (last time we were here that happened with the wine we ordered). But the food was exactly as described and very tasty. A little pricey for the portion size, but enjoyable. We will return.

    West-East serves all natural food. They take special care to insure that what you are eating is the best quality. The meat is all-natural, the veggies are organic, they have a Resident Health Coach for crying out loud. If you want to eat out and feel good about what you eat then this is the place. I had the "Rocking Moroccan” venison short loin and my wife had Black Truffle Dusted Diver Scallops. Not a morsel was left on our plates; absolutely delicious. TL;DR - East-West Bistro is fantastic.

And lobster Mac and cheese and lamb chops as entree. Everything was really good. I plan on returning. I would say though the portions are a little small for entrees. Oh and dessert was great and everything is fresh and organic
