Diner Reviews
  • "Started with mimosas for brunch, and they were perfect. Had the corn flatbread recommended by the waiter and it was delicious. Would order it again next time. The roast chicken was very good, and ended with Cappucinos. A terrific brunch. Especially if going to an early movie at the Landmark."

  • "This time I had the trout and it was prepared just right, crispy skin and tender inside over a delicious corn based vegetable chowder. Very tasty. The burger is always good, so is the french dip. It is a good lunch place."

  • "I ordered the steak cooked medium, and while the temp was correct, the steak was absolutely flavorless. The Server took it back without hesitation and brought out the special which was very good (Fried Chicken). I frequent this resturant, so I wasn't surprised that the Server was so accomendating, they always are, but I think that is a reflection of the management, because the resturants management practises are always A+. The Server however was not attentive, never refill our glasses with wine, slow to returning to the table to service us. However, I do recomend the resturant, just wish the Chef would be more consistent. The pudding is also a disappointment - tastes more like a brand muffin."

  • "Love this restaurant - diverse menu, food is always good; consistent quality. Courteous service. A great place to have a meal w/friends or alone -- at the bar, table or booth. Burger is to die for, delicious french dip, fantastic calamari, delicious lobster salad. Definitely recommend this restaurant for lunch or dinner."

  • "I love Westside Tavern. I've only gone there as a regular for lunch, but never disapppointed in the food, service, ambience. Special thanks and kudos to their restaurant manager (I'm sorry I don't know his name) that covers the lunch shift during the week. He's incredible - efficient, focused, friendly and always paying attention to customers. And BTW, if you can find a way to keep the heirloom tomato, cucumber and watermelon gazpacho soup on the regular menu, you'd have a following!!!!"

  • "The Westside Tavern is my go to restaurant to take my friends for lunch. It's easy to park at, accessible and delicious food and a price that won't break the bank. We like to split a lot of the food so we can try different things. Salmon burger is always delicious and the flat breads are a must. I am a little sad that they got rid of the lamb french dip, but I'll make do. :)"

  • "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."
    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."

  • "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."

  • "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. "

  • "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!"

  • "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!!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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! :)"
