French food using local ingredientsThe four of us went on a Sunday at 6 p.m. so the restaurant was fairly quiet. We requested a booth and got ring-side seats to the kitchen. Our waiter, Julian, was very attentive. The food was excellent and artfully presented. Next time, my husband and I will be sure to have the lobster gnocchi and the duck, which one of our party ordered. The scallops were killer. My husband and I had been at La Regalade the weekend prior to dining at West and were very disappointed at the quality of the food. For example, my husband ordered duck and it was a leg and thigh, and was very bony and fatty and was approx. the same price as the beautifully presented duck breast at West. We'll definitely go back to West.10/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticWe went at 5:45 before theatre at 8 pm at the Stanley. Great way to start the evening . The pre theatre menu was excellent. 5 stars on service, presentation and taste. The spring pea soup is not what you think ; very fresh and creative.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyable dinnerA pretty diverse menu with great sounding food. What we ordered was delicious. Lots of specialty drink choices. I tried one and it was good. Exactly how the waiter described it. Service was outstanding. Good place to go.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for Mother's Day!My mum and I had a wonderful three-course Mother's Day brunch before seeing a matinee at the Stanley. The experience was flawless - excellent food, attentive service and a relaxed ambiance. My gluten-free dietary request was accommodated with ease and there was even a basket of house-made fresh gluten-free bread done especially for me at a moment's notice. Thank you for putting me in Mum's good books for the rest of the year!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat DiscoveryThe food was perfection. The service was impeccable. The decor is very attractive. There is not a lot of space for seating, but that
gives it a very cosmopolitan feel. Staff are very well informed on the dishes. Rack of Lamb was delicious, with the
Fois Gras added on the side.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of Vancouver's BestThe food at West is outstanding, everything seemed very carefully prepared and presented. The cocktail list is inventive and the drinks we tried were fantastic. Only two things that need improvement - the waiter seemed to be constantly trying to 'up sell' - suggesting side scallops with the crab salad, suggesting an order of foie with the duck entree, this isn't necessary in this type of restaurant; the other negative was that the wine we selected was not available.
There were wonderful dessert choices although I felt like the $15 plus for the chocolate tasting plate was high, it really wasn't particularly special, everything was sticky and overly sweet.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food.
