Phoned twice...no answer. Left message on machine for a reservation then went on sight and reserved a table for two. Parking was 1 1/2 blocks away to find out it was closed during open hours of 18:00 Saturday Oct 22nd. . . Went to Hudsons instead. Should of communicated on Web site and or answering machine to customers it was closed. 😕 we've always heard good things about the food...I will give it another chance.
There was one other table (8) people. There was no competing with the music and their loud conversation. Could not hear ourselves talk. Was hoping for a nice experience/food and ambiance but was not impressed.
My dissatisfaction with my experience at 50 West stems from two main areas. The one that did not bother me as much was the ambience (or lack thereof). I cannot be particularly picky about ambience given the other dining options in Red Deer, AB but I was disappointed at the physical experience of eating in 50 West contrasted with the food and style they attempt to present to their clientele. The second point I am unfortunately hung up on is the price. Luckily my date and I had a gift card that helped with the majority of the cost of our meal. However, when I assessed the cost of our meal and the meal itself I could not help seeing a disparity. The total cost of our meal towered over the true quality of the taste and presentation of our dishes. For these reasons I would not recommend 50 West to anyone as there are bountiful options (yes, even in Red Deer) that will surpass this restaurant in value and overall dining experience.
Really really good food
So not impressed. My hubby and i went on a date for the first time in months and the portions were patheticly small, the price was way too high, the flavours were lacking, the wait time for food seemed like an eternity and both our meals were overcooked and dry. The only thing that was good was the service and the drinks
I will never be back
Steak wasn't the best. Not wine drinking but the beer selection was good.
Great experience! The food was very tasty and the atmosphere was great. Will definitely be back :)
We had the fresh guacamole as a starter, yum!
Feature crunchy salmon with coconut risotto was to die for!
And the panacotta was heavenly!
We were very excited to try this restaurant but we were very disappointed to arrive and discover that they were completely out of duck and lamb!! The chicken and lobster pasta were good. We will be back when there is duck!
Although the atmosphere is that of fine dinning and the price accompanies that, the food is just okay. There was nothing wrong with it, but was lacking flavour and not what we expected. The menu describes delicious dishes, however, the reality was not up to par. The servers and hostess were lovely and the atmosphere is good. We will not return for food, but would go to have a nice drink with adults.
