  • "After 4 yrs of going to the West side for Father's Day, my steak was finally cooked the way I ordered it. Unfortunately neither my hash browns and toast were under cooked and the pancakes over cooked. The toast so much so that it was inedible."

  • "Except for busy weekends we have never been rushed so that our table could be used in a shorter time period. Reservations are always met at the time made."

  • "We celebrated a family birthday dinner on a busy Saturday night; it was Prom Night for one of the high schools and quite busy. Our party of 6 was promptly seated and service was quite attentive throughout our entire time there. The various special requests were handled properly. While I'm sure the other soups are very good, you MUST upgrade the cup of soup to the Lobster Bisque. I actually used some of their delicious bread to wipe the bowl of the final drops. We all ordered fish dishes from their special menu and found the all to be excellent. Save room for dessert- both the Vanilla Creme Brulee and the baked to order Cookie with Ice Cream had us talking about our experience for days after. Next time we're in Gilroy we will return."

  • "We treated our parents to am anniversary dinner here. I called ahead to inform them of the special occasion. They went above and beyond to makey parents night special. I was surprised they allowed us to pay over the phone so that my parents wouldn't worry about the bill. "

  • "Food was marginal, garlic mashed potatoes were flavorless. Prime rib was ok, not fantastic. Wedge salad had three crumbles of blue cheese and dressing was skimpy. This place is just marginal at best. It needs to up the food quality and try a bit harder. I will drive to Morgan Hill again for dinner. "
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "We had the prime rib, medium rare was not a problem. Others had the halibut special which was moist and perfectly cooked. West Side Grill is a regular favorite of ours and we always enjoy our meal and feel like we got our money's worth! Service was excellent as well."

  • "Food was great but service was not too great. Servers seemed like they didnt want to be there or be serving our party. Server responded with a bit of an attitude whenever we asked him a question about the menu, it was our first time there so we had some questions. We celebrated my moms 65th birthday and they didnt even do anything special for her. I worked at Odeum in morgan hill so maybe the service standards are different. Overall food was delicious and prices were very resonable."

  • "Reservations seem to be a must as the place was busy; always a good sign when you walk into a restaurant for the first time. Great menu with delicious appetizers and main courses. I have already earmarked a couple items to try next time when we go out. The waiters are kind and provide an excellent dinning experience. There is a decent size bar area as we'll where you can grab a drink and chat before you are seated. Will return soon!"

  • "This was not our first visit to Westside Grill, and it definitely won't be our last. The food, drinks, service and atmosphere were all excellent. My husband's favorite is the bone-in rib eye steak. It was cooked to perfection, as usual. I've had multiple items on the menu, but a few of my favorite recommendations would be their scallops or herb crusted chicken. Try it once - you'll become a regular."

    Dined on 10/25/2013
  • "The reviews I read before dining here were consistent regarding the food. We were celebrating our twin wives birthdays and the experience was excellent. Calamari and green bean appetizers were spot on. The steaks were cooked perfectly to temperature. The scallops were fit for a Ramsey restaurant. Wine list could expand a bit but service was quick and attentive. Over all, it was a wonderful experience and we will be back again and again."

  • "I can't really fault the food although, I would like to see a little more variety in the menu. The service was great, attentive and patient. The ambiance is excellent for a nice quiet dinner for 2 or more. The one area I can fault them on is the pricing of the meals being too high. I cook high end food at home and I know all the pricing for the cuts of meat or other dishes. The markup on the menu items are quite large. I'm not sure if i's to cover the extra staff or the location overhead but, restaurants in the area with comparable menu items are not priced as high. Other than that, I would recommend this restaurant."

  • "We enjoyed the varied menu and the relaxed environment."
    Dined on 6/30/2013
  • "I'm not quite sure how and why this has 4 stars. The service was okay. Not spectacular. Really a 3.5 star but that's it. The food was okay as well. Meat had a charred taste. It left you chewing it, as oppose to getting it down the hatch. Drinks were good. Mashed potatoes were extremely dry. I expected so much more from a $$ menu."
    Dined on 6/24/2013
  • "Overall food was very good and service was excellent. The only flaw in execution was the daily specials from the prior day were left in the menu so one of the selections that was chosen was not available so the waiter had to come out and let us know which caused a slight delay in delivery of the entrees. After the entrees were served, we had asked for a 2nd portion of bread which never arrived. Seeing how none of us left with leftovers, the portion size was just right and the meal met everyone's expectations which is rare. The 2008 Solis cab was also a nice selection. All in all, a great choice that also turned out to be quite reasonable at $158 for 5 (4 adults + 1 child) including wine, before gratiuity."
    Dined on 6/15/2013
  • "I had lunch with a friend and we ordered the calamari and two entree salads. However the waiter forgot the calamari and brought it later and I brought it to his attention. But to my amazement, the waiter did a service recovery and apologized for the delay and compensated us for the lack of service. All in all the food was very good and the service recovery will entice me to go back to this restaurant because they do care about their customer service."
