We made a reservation for a birthday dinner on a Saturday night. It was for 6 of us. When we got there they sat us at a table directly next to the front door. Out of every table in the whole restaurant, our “reserved” table was right next to the door and jammed right next to another table. We moved the table ourselves to at least give some room between the person in the end chair and the people at the table next to us. We all kept our coats on during dinner because people kept going in and out of the restaurant and it was a very cold night. I just would have figured making a reservation a week ahead of time I would have been reserved a table in a better location...

Overall it was a great night out. We got there about 10 minutes later than our reservation was for. The hostess sat us down right away; unfortunately the only table she had was right up front next to the door and it was very cold and drafty. The drinks, service and food were all very good. Great menu offerings and a varied price points so there was something for everyone. The restrooms were a bit of a mess... for a busy Saturday night it wasn’t a surprise but disappointing. The atmosphere was more casual than expected which was fine. Will definitely go back.

I heard so much about 86 West, I was quite pleased. However my filet sliders were quite dry and tasteless. The fries were good. My wife's burger was quite good. She really enjoyed it. I would definitely go back to check out other items on the menu. Looks like a great place to watch a football game.

Overall a disappointing experience. The drinks were terrible - a revamping of the bar is long overdue. The food was ok but the quality and service has certainly deteriorated over the years.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. Our server, Tasha, was excellent. The place was extremely busy so we had to wait over a half hour for our food. So I would suggest you be prepared to wait. Everything was fresh and well presented. We had the crab cakes which were very tasty and ordered the filet which was good but overcooked. Our server was very sympathetic and spoke with the manager who rectified the situation to our satisfaction. Definitely a place that cares about their customer's experience. The noise level is very loud when they are busy so beware of that issue. I would definitely eat here again and recommend to anyone visiting the Doylestown area.

My wife and I visit 86 West regularly, at least several times per month. Great food, well-crafted cocktails, and vibrant enough to be interesting but still quite enough to have real conversations.

The Roles are great ... oysters tasty ... and a nice selection of sandwiches and entrees. Hint: Try the Oyster Shooters!

We had early reservations for 3pm - and arrived to a fairly empty restaurant. The service was good, as we were very excited for the food - but even though the waitress too the extra time to make sure my special food mod was correctly taken down - it arrived to the table incorrectly.

The entire plate was taken back, and my friend ate her meal while I waited for mine. When mine came back, the size of the chicken was super small - smaller that the first one that had come out - and it wasn’t cooked all the way. It also tasted funny, so I only took a few bites and left the rest.

Also - no happy hour special on a Saturday at 3pm, and no exceptions, so we left quicker than we would have, had we been given the option to enjoy happy hour sooner.

Also - nothing more than a sorry about that for the mistake with my lunch. I left hungry, and ended up having to go eat somewhere else to make up for it.

Quite disappointing. Thankfully, the french fries were good.

This was our second visit to 86 West. The first was excellent, with great food and service. This second visit was awful. It took at least 15 minutes after we were seated for our server to get to our table. And when we asked about the wait she was very defensive. The food was poor, with the most watered down seafood bisque I've ever had, complete with zero pieces of seafood. The sushi was average and we were very disappointed.

Overall me and my boyfriend had a great dinner. There were times when service was not as great as it could be, such as the sushi I had ordered was spicy and we were out of water, with no one checking on us. Eventually I flagged down our waitress and asked for some. We were basically the only ones inside since it was nice out and right next to an odd party of people. Our waitress was very nice. The food was great, a little pricey though. This is my second time coming and I still enjoyed it, nothing huge to complain about.

Our neighboring table was def overserved, and when gentleman in question was cut off, he was loud and made suggestive remarks. He continued to curse profusely and speak far too loudly, and i finally had to say something. He apologized o er and over , as drunk people are prone to do. When he finally got up to leave, he almost fell in my lap. His table mates were mortified and also apologized for him. It was just a slice of life that day. No reflection on 86 West, and it will def not keep us from returning frequently.
