Diner Reviews
  • "Server didn't know they were provondong bread and oil for the table, after waiting for about 30 minutes. Food was tasteless. For a Sunday brunch? The place had so many vacant tables; I guess the word is out that the foods not as fine as the place looks."

  • "Good food, healthy portions, nice atmosphere, friendly staff and moderate prices. Who could ask for more? This was a perfect choice for dinner with a friend who was visiting from out of town. A vegetarian, she had several menu options, we were well taken care of by the staff and enjoyed our meal and catching up with each other! A lovely evening."

  • "for our 6:30pm Saturday reservation, we arrived right on time and were seated immediately. our waiter was great, but we felt rushed the entire time! our appetizer came in minutes, our food came out before we had even finished the app. the waiter tried to clear my plate before i was done eating, and he brought the check before we finished our wine. it was very odd, and we noticed other tables being served very quickly, as well. considering the price of the meal, and the nice tip we left, i would have expected more ambiance and courtesy. we probably will spend our hard-earned money elsewhere when we want to splurge next."

  • "Food was solid, much better than the last time we were there, though this was several years ago. Relaxed, cozy atmosphere. Generous portions, excellent quality and flavor of ingredients, nice range of offerings on the menu . Service was attentive (and patient, we had a chatty group)."

  • "West-on-Centre has good ,friendly, warm atmosphere. Nice fireplace on wintry days/nights and terrific food. The burgers are the best around . And they make excellent cocktails- try the pear martini: yum! Also- appetizers are varied and good as well as salmon entrees.this winter the home style pot roast was so good we went back 3 times to order it! Their chef is most accommodating and has made vegan entrees for our vegan family member and she loves it: mushroom terrine! This is a special place and the locals know , so make a reservation so you're sure to get a table. Sunday brunch is delicious , too! Remember this spot, it worth the visit."

  • "I am sorry that we only found this restaurant now. Great food great service and reasonable prices. We had meat, vegetarian and fish dishes and all were terrific. Soda refills without asking. A new favorite local place and better than many in Boston"

  • "Food, service, presentation were all great. But very difficult to hear our guests over the noise of children squealing and folks yelling across tables."

  • "My husband and I had not been to the restaurant for a few years. We have been back now about 3 times since then. The food is quite good. The atmosphere was always nice. I still will complain, though, that their vodka martinis are way too expensive for a neighborhood restaurant."

  • "I ordered the baked haddock, it came with green beans and mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious and the serving was very generous. My husband ordered banana bread pudding for dessert and it fed three well. Excellent service also. Would definetly return and recommend to others"

  • "Bad winter's night, parking a problem, but, got a space on street, short walk, OK, table with guests just fine, service excellent, food, 3 out of our had haddock, very well cooked, very enjoyable experience overall, fish plate, really good, not overcooked, kudu's to chef, and servers, busy night, but well done by all employee's, recommended..thanks."

  • "My husband and I had not been to West On Centre for quite a few years. We decided to try it again. The food was good, the atmosphere enjoyable. My husband enjoys a vodka martini so our only complaint is the vodka martinis were quite expensive for a neighborhood restaurant, which we did write about on their suggestion cards. . We most likely will go back, but not order the expensive vodka martinis!"

  • "We held a meeting on Saturday at lunch time. The table was perfect…fit all 6 of us comfortably, we could hear each other, the food and service were great and just right for this occasion. I will rebook for the next 2 meetings coming up. We loved the variety and quality of salads, apps, soups, and sandwiches. Thanks."

  • "I would definitely return to try other dishes though the ribs were fantastic and deserve another go. Excellent service and large portions made this a great choice for dinner. The noise level was a bit distracting at times and the lack of parking makes me think we'll try a weekday instead of a Saturday night. It would have also been helpful if there was a name visible on the building--difficult to find as first timers."

  • "I have been to West twice for lunch and enjoyed both times. The food is tasty. I like the interior very much. They have 2 halls. One is with the fireplace, bar and dim lights. Another one is bright with big windows. The service was very good. The prices are reasonable. I will come back."

  • "We made reservations and were seated almost immediately. The ambiance contagiously energetic. West Roxbury is lucky to have a place like this. Our waitress was very accommodating and made an error with our order but rectified it and the management sent a complimentary app. to our table and apologized as well, nice. All in all, it was a delicious meal, the steak tips were perfectly cooked I was told and my salmon burger was delish!"

  • "I have been a diner at West on Centre for many years. It's always been consistent with a menu that offered everyone something to eat. This experience was disappointing. The menu has changed drastically- I felt like I was at a low end chain restaurant. The wine was not drinkable - I had to send it back. Didn't bother getting another glass as I realized they now only offered low end wines by the glass - not worth it. The waiter was creepy - very odd. The food was less than mediocre and I don't like the new menu. I don't see myself returning to W. on Ctr. Too bad."

  • "I went to West on Centre for dinner with a friend. I ordered the West Burger and my friend ordered a grilled chicken sandwich. I asked for my burger to be cooked medium-well and my friend asked that her meal be dairy-free due to allergies. When our food came, her chicken was on buttered bread. She had to send it back and reiterate that she couldn't have anything with butter on it due to her food allergy. When I cut into my burger, it was still pink in the middle. The meat should have been brown the whole way through. I ate around it and avoided the pinkest parts. I think the food was good quality and I liked what I ate, but the servers and chefs need to pay better attention to requests from customers, especially when allergies are involved."

  • "Four of us had dinner on Friday night and we were promptly seated. We had made a reservation earlier in the day which is advisable on a weekend night. The food was very reasonable, plentiful, and quite good. Our waitress was lovely - very accomodating. However the restaurant was so loud that we could barely hear ourselves talk. We all agreed that we would return, but certainly not on a weekend evening because of the noise. Overall that kept it from being a lovely experience."
