    We had not really explored this restaurant even though it is almost walking distance. The prices are a little on the high side so we can't go more often but this is a great treat for us. From the ladies who welcomed us inside to the wait staff and busers who kept us happy to the bartenders who made amazing drinks. All is good. Now we have to eat lighter so we can maybe fit in dessert! Or just stop and get seats in the bar area for a quick bite and more Mai Tai's. We will be back!

    Our waiter was not as good as we are used to at this restaurant. I asked for Bleu cheese olives in my martini and he said they were out of them. In the past Jonathan went the extra mile and hand stuffed the olives for us. Our waiter never told us what they were sold out of that day so when we made a choice for dinner two of us were disappointed as they were out of what we wanted. I would think that when the menus were distributed the right thing to do is tell the customer what is no longer available, especially on the specials of the day menu.

    Dined on 8/3/2014
    Our fault probably because we did not ask for bread until our waiter brought the dessert menu over. He explained they had an assigned bread person and that we should have gotten bread just after our cocktails arrived. We thought that maybe they changed the policy and were not serving their delicious bread/ rolls any longer. Anyway instead of bread we forced ourselves to take home a piece of the peanut butter pie....the best.

    West Side Grill has been on my Favorites List for close to a year. I put it there to eventually try but my wife and I would always stick to what we know in Morgan Hill. This past weekend I decided to give WSG a try and we're very glad we did. Even though the restaurant is in a office complex the interior is surprisingly nice. We were sat at a nice corner table and we're surprised how busy the restaurant was. It appeared to have a nice bar we could have also sat at. The menu has a great variety of appetizers, salads and entrees. We both ordered the Filet and Bacon Wrapped Scallops special which was cooked perfectly and very satisfying. We even had enough to take home for the next day. All in all a very pleasant experience.

    You most likely would not notice West Side since it is in a business complex. The food is always exceptional with wonderful service. The produce is fresh and love that they use local growers. This past visit, the background music was a bit too loud. We should have told them, but did not. If you have a favorite wine that is not on the menu, let them know and you will have it at your next visit. We have been going there 8 years and have never been disappointed at the food or service. A hidden gem.

    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.

    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.

    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!

  • Get the Lobster Bisque Soup
    Trip95
    Dined on 3/29/2014
    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.

    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.

    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.
