  • "I have always enjoyed excellent service at this restaurant."

  • "A very positive dining experience! Our server was pleasant and very attentive. Food selection is vaired and our choices were excellent. Our entrees were appetizing and were very tasteful. Our order was taken quickly - questions answered and she checked with us during the meal. Definately would return to Westside Tavern again."

  • "We went to Westside Tavern for Father's Day brunch/lunch. The food was decent, but the server seemed to be exasperated that we had a child with us (on Father's Day?). His attitude only warmed when it was nearing time for the check to come."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I come here regularly to dine before seeing a movie upstairs, sometimes with friends or alone at the bar. The food is reliably excellent, and the specials are great. Very good bartenders, too. One of my favorite go-to spots on the westside."

  • "Came here for a UCLA graduation celebration lunch. Food choices were good because they appealed to various tastes and experiences. Nothing too exotic for the grandmas and out of towners but interesting enough for the foodies and younger guests. Service was relatively quick although they didn't fill water glasses with regularity. I would come here again."

  • "Westside Tavern is definitely our go-to place...for when we decide to eat out on a whim or even when we have it planned way in advance. There isn't a bad selection on the menu. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "This was just what we were looking for on this day. A lunch spot with delicious food and a range of choices from delicious trendy salads and soups, to a great burger! "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The food and service were very good, although we went there for brunch and they only had one breakfast offering. If you are in the mood for lunch, this place is pretty good, but it's definitely not a brunch place. Also, it's in the Westside Pavilion mall. "

  • "Best cheese burger in L.A. and that is saying a lot... "

  • "We made an impromptu get together with some friends and Westside Tavern is the first place we thought of to go. Great food, as always, great servers. It's always at the top of our list when we're thinking of places to go. "

  • "Have been wanting to try this place but they don't take dinner reservations so we opted for lunch! Great service and the food was absolutely delicious! Starting off with the tempure green beans for the table - a must!! Had the veggie burger which was amazing and we all shared the donuts at the end for the table. Also a must! Will definitely be returning! Only gave it 4 out of 5 because our server was missing for the first 15 minutes!"

  • "This restaurant continues to serve wonderful food and fine drinks. The servers are friendly and helpful. This is a great place for a meal before or after a movie at the Landmark. Reservations are a good idea at lunch."

  • "We decided on lunch at the last minute at The Westside Tavern. We know we're always going to get great food and great service every time we dine there. Always like the new items that are added to the menu."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "All the food was delicious but the flatbread with artichokes, fava beans, roasted tomatoes and pesto was amazing. My granddaughter liked the tomato basil soup and grilled cheese. But I wish there was a children's menu available. The chicken soup was as good as any deli if not better. Service was just fair as we had to wait about 10 minutes prior to being approached by a waiter and the restaurant was not busy as it had just opened!! NO excuse for this!!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Terrific ahi poke and delicious grilled veggie and burrata sandwich. Service was quite good and we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. We were able to get the booth we like too!! Would like to see some more new menu items."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Centrally located and presents well. A terrific place for a lunch meeting. The staff and the excellent menu make it a breeze to carry on our business and still feed our rumbly tummies!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Wow, my daughter thinks this is the best sandwich she has ever had. Big chunks of lobster in the buttered/grilled roll and when one piece ended up on the floor our gracious server brought her extra lobster to replace it - now that was service over-and-above what you'd expect. Our group of five was there on a Saturday afternoon around 1:30 and the noise level was such that we could actually talk to one another. The flat breads are yummy and the hummus is so delicious, you've got to try it. We also shared the chocolate bread pudding topped with ice cream - a perfect ending to a delightful meal."

  • "Great restaurant. We'd go a lot more if they would take reservations past 4:45 p.m."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "It's an easy place to have a meal if you go off hours or can wait to get in before or after the movies upstairs. They now take reservations for lunch, making it a go-to place to meet for business lunches. Lead off with the tempura green beans while people consider the rest of the menu and everyone will be happy."
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "From the time you walk in to the time you leave, every staff members greets you, thanks you and makes you feel good. The food is excellent, nicely presented, the choices are for everyone from vegan to meat eaters. I set up a lunch meeting and it was a great place for having meeting. Our server gave us the right amount of attention while having our meeting. He was A+++++. Westside Tavern is consistently great in every way."
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "I like this place for weekend lunches with friends. The food is well-prepared, there are good wines by the glass, as well as fun (and delicious) cocktails, the service is attentive, and it's quiet enough for lots of girl talk. Plus, there's 3-hours of free parking, and it's in the Westside Pavilion next to movie theaters and retail therapy. This time out I had a glass of sparkling wine, an Asian chicken salad, and a fantastic chocolate mousse (garnished with chocolate nibs). Delicious!"
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "First time reserving on Open Table - no issues with my reservation. Food is consistently great - especially the hummus. Love this for business lunches as the food is just trendy enough but with some mainstays for picky eaters. Many, many guilty pleasures on this menu (DONUTS!!!) but easy to make some healthy choices too."

  • "A perfect meeting spot between Santa Monica and Century City. The Quinoa salad was delicious."

  • "Incredibly delicious steak salad-steak done medium rate as requested. Excellent chicken, avocado,tomato and bacon sandwich-The best bacon I have ever tasted. Service was professional and efficient. I can't wait to return."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "We shared 3 appetizers - mac & cheese (aka CRACK & cheese - OMG, so addictive!), brusell sprouts & green beans. All ah-mazing. I had the veggie goat cheese sandwich and it was even better than the crack & cheese! We each loved our entres. The place was PACKED but the service was excellent, as if we were the only ones there. This place is unbelievable, EVERY SINGLE TIME! :)"

  • "This very convenient restaurant has a varied menu, quick service and large room. Good for a quick meal or a leisurely one while attending the Landmark movie theater adjacent."

  • "The food and service was good but the noise lever was too high and it was very Hard to hear the person next to you."
    Dined on 11/7/2013
  • "The artichoke flatbread and crab cake salad were quite good, but the daily special salad-Chinese chicken salad was a disappointment-very mundane with a tasteless, quite oily dressing. This dish should be improved or taken off the menu. Service was friendly and professional. This restaurant is always a winner! My favorite booth by the front window that I had requested was available which made me quite happy!"
    Dined on 11/6/2013
  • "This is an OK restaurant. There is a need for them to update their menu offerings. Been the same for two many years now. Booth seats are torn should be replaced as sitting in a torn booth which has been patched over is not good for a supposedly upscale restaurant. Food is medicore."
    Dined on 11/3/2013
  • "The restaurant is always packed given it's location (steps away from the Landmark Theater and the Westside mall). First time I used OpenTable to book here and was seated next to the kitchen door. NOTE TO OPEN TABLE: Why is that? We asked to move to a booth away from the door and they accommodated our request because a table opened up. Typically LA however: wait staff clearly have scripts or a face shot somewhere - visibly nonchalant, but decent service."
