Five West Kitchen + Bar
Book your next event with us
We always have a a wonderful dining and entertaining experience.at 5 West. My food is always done to order or dealt with immediately. There are plates for every palate choice. Service staff is extremely accommodating and cheerful. The entertainment is great. It’s just at the right sound level and they cater to all ages. We love the acoustics of Fernando Ufret. This place is great for family and out of town guest entertaining. I recommend 5 West.
Very much enjoyed the food and especially the dessert. Had the chocolate tart.
Brunch was amazing. I have been here several times it it doesn’t disappoint. They were able to get our food out quick and we were win and out in 30 minutes.
Great service with plenty of menu options! Chicken dishes were delicious, but a bit heavy on sauces. Desserts were a hit!
valentine’s day! they had a special valentine’s day menu, they should add soups to it! buffalo chicken wantons are absolutely outstanding!!
First time here and won't be the last time. Completely loved this place. Well done.
Wonderful brunch and mimosas. The service was attentive but not too overwhelming. We ordered eggs Benedict and the only problem was that the poached egg was overcooked and not as runny as it should be. Other than that, it was fantastic.
The food was very good. We had maple bourbon burgers and fries and each had a cocktail. The cocktails we haven't been fans of the last two times we went so we may skip that in the future. We also had the rocky road brownie dessert and it was MASSIVE and so good. Five West is one our favorite places to eat and we will be back!
Five West is consistent with great service and delicious food. It’s one of our go-to places when taking friends and family out to eat in Rochester. We have small children and always feel comfortable taking them to five west. The staff is very friendly and make you feel at home.
Met friends from a few hours away to connect and visit. The food was great, never felt rushed but our server disappeared halfway through our visit. The strangest thing was the music choice.. it was brunch time and hard core heavy metal was playing, that did not match the environment created. Will definitely go back!!
The food was delicious! We felt a little bit like sardines packed in there, but overall not bad.
Great brunch/breakfast prices and choices!
we sat in the fireplace room. Very cozy and quiet. We could visit. thanks.
We dine out a lot. This was one of the best upscale casual places we have been to. Place is outstanding, food was excellent!! Wish we lived closer , very well done !!!
Very nice dinner with girlfriends! They had live music, very good. They were busy, bar service took a while. We were in no hurry though! Yummy food! Five West is one of my favorite go tos!
Aaron was a phenomenal server. Food and cocktails were on point.
Had reservations for New Years Eve and the whole dining experience was spot on!
Food was excellent. However, considering I had placed a reservation ahead of time I expected a table... not a high top shared booth in the bar area. Our server was polite but a manager took our drink order and delivered... finally got an appetizer ordered but then server didn't come back for food order until app was gone. Server also didn't deliver out food or check back on us after our food was delivered. For the price, I expect better service which we have received on previous visit. Food was excellent but service was disappointing...
We waited over 20 minutes to have our order taken. The food came out fast, but wasn’t anything special. The music On the speakers was very loud and not inviting. Our server seemed to be new or wasn’t getting the help she needed at the busy time. The lunch menu was also subpar. There were not a lot of options unless you wanted brunch. I don’t plan to go back.
Sea Bass special served still frozen in the middle. It was replaced by another entree at no charge.
I love the relaxing atmosphere of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I will definitely return.
I love the Cherry Almond Salad with Chicken and are happy they have it on the menu all year round.
Service was well-timed and friendly .
This review is strictly for the Thanksgiving buffet. We LOVE Five West and frequent it. The buffet was just ok in our opinion. Not enough options for children, we knew what they were serving and opted to go anyways but it was a flop for the youngest. The ceasar salad was non-existent when we were there, the chicken was room temperature at best, and the candied carrots were some cubed carrots and peas combination(which was a disappointment). The salmon was fantastic along with the the turkey and as a bonus my favorite soup was being served. I am not sure we would opt for this again unless they change things up. As I stated above we love Five West and will continue to go there for regular meals but not sure we would try a buffet there again.
A bit more noise than usual, but it was the eve of Thanksgiving, and there was music provided (very good duet). Overall, a very nice get away from the food prep at home.
Good food, but super loud. Crowd noise is brutal. Made worse by over-amp'd musicians. Owners: Install some noise suppressing foam in the ceiling. Owners: Download a decibel meter to your phone. You will may find that you are breaking OSHA noise levels.
innovative menu. Good beer selection. The walleye was very good and easy to make reservations
Great time, great food. We love the vegan sliders even for an entree
Very loud. Food wasn’t as good as usual. Server was pleasant.
Great for Sunday brunch.
This restaurant has a fabulous menu, excellent service, and is great for families, small groups or couples. The food was excellent.
This is really a great gem in Rochester. Everyone at our table had positive things to say about their meal. I believe that my dinner was one of the best I've had in all of 2019 so far.
The food, drinks, live music, and ambience were all great! Just a little disappointed they didn’t mention my son’s birthday even though we had that on the reservation. And it’s quite expensive for Rochester.
It was great. However, sitting with family we haven't seen in ages, once the check was paid for we didn't see the server again. It was later in the evening and there were empty tables everywhere. We were a group of 6 with most drinking beers. It would have been nice had someone asked if we wanted more water or if we wanted to open again with some drinks. We ended up going over to a different place to have a few more drinks. Everything else was fantastic as always though. Just bummed when I tried to impress my family with my favorite place it came up short.
Food was lukewarm and didn’t come out at the same time and was not correct first time around. Was rectified and fine. Live music was so loud we couldn’t hear - we didn’t ask for a different table so that’s on us. We should have and maybe we could have sat elsewhere.
Good food with many options.
Great noise level which allowed discussion.
Group of 6 women for book club meeting. Drinks & food wonderful. Everyone raved about the entree they ordered. I had the ancient grain bowl with chicken & vegetables. It was so delicious. So flavorful that even if full still can’t stop eating it. I’m craving it and want to dine @ 5 West again soon
Very slow service. Took a long time to see him for the first time, and 25 minutes to get two sodas. I ordered a side salad, which had always come Before my meal. Came with the meal. He was clearly overwhelmed as we noticed other tables getting as slow of service as us. Will think twice before returning.
The food was outstanding. We had the Buffalo Chicken Wontons, Pumpkin Seed Walleye and the Fish Tacos. Great selection of beers. Relatively quiet for a Saturday night.
Five West is in a great location and has a variety of item to choose from on the menu. I've not had a bad experience yet. The place is usually busy so I'd recommend having reservations. Good food and service.
Normally my favorite restaurant. I’ve had the pork chops several times and so recommended to my friends. Three ordered and all were overcooked. Not sure who the chef was that night but he sure ruined our experience. My friends were not impressed and I doubt will go back.
