Everything about the dining experience was great, EXCEPT for the person at the greeting desk requiring a face mask for me and my date to walk the 25 steps from the front of the restaurant to the table. That was absolutely ridiculous, and I will probably wait until this Covid charade is complete before re-visiting the restaurant.

Celebrating birthdays for the month of October. Friends from Orlando visiting for the weekend. Our first time there.
They ordered well done filet paired with the cold water lobster tail and the salmon....perfect!
My wife and I ordered the 4oz medium well and 7 oz medium. The medium well came out well done and the medium came out medium well. Both were dry and not as mouth-watering moist and hot as I expected. They did a do over but our guest had finished their entree’s. However the chargrilled oysters were delicious! Mr Erwin greeted us which was a nice touch.

Elizabeth was amazing. So energetic and focused on our satisfaction. Even found a small chip in a wine glass and replaced it proactively. I didn’t even see it. Great food and service but Elizabeth was the highlight!

I have enjoyed the west end grille food and experience for a number of years. However the night I went last week they seemed a little off their game. We had to ask for silverware and plates! The peach on the buratta salad was very very cold. The peach at one point had been grilled because there were grill marks and would have been far more flavorful and pleasing had it been room temp. Aside from that the food was very good

We celebrated our three year anniversary last night, and going to Rick Erwin’s West End Grille was an amazing decision! They offered us complimentary champagne to celebrate, and though my SO doesn’t drink, they came out with flutes of lemonade to celebrate. It was very thoughtful. Our dinner was excellent, and he couldn’t stop raving about the Nola BBQ shrimp that he had with his steak. Our server, Ryan, recommended us the banana bread pudding and butter cake with peach vanilla ice cream, and it was so delicious! All of the people on staff were welcoming and nice. We are already planning to go back for both of our birthdays coming up as well. Definitely recommend!

I made reservations for my daughter's 20th birthday. When we arrived we were seated immediately and on the table was a beautiful birthday card that was signed by each of the staff members. As always our entrees were amazingly delicious and our service was impeccable! From the appetizers to the desserts everything was outstanding!!

This was our first time using indoor seating since the pandemic started, and we felt perfectly safe. Rather than blocking off tables, Rick Erwin has actually removed them for the floor, so you have a very elegant and spacious dining experience. The staff were conscientious in wearing masks. Beyond that, the food was divine. I had the calamari & Chilean Sea Bass that melted in my mouth. I've never tasted it that good. And although I'm not a dessert eater, I did try my husbands banana fosters bread pudding, and I couldn't stop having just one more bite. And it's always a nice touch when Rick Erwin comes around and personally checks to see how your dinner was. It was a wonderful date night for my husband and me.

We went to dinner for my birthday and had a reservation for 6:30 on a Thursday night. Everything was great...very safe COVID precautions were in place. The food was great and the service was good. We felt that our waiter was rushing us along. We had wanted to have a leisurely dinner and enjoy each course but did feel that we were being rushed a little too much. Other than that, we had a great experience!

They didn’t have drink menu’s printed out. Waiter asked us what we would like and we told him we didn’t have drink menus that the hostess said she would get for us. He came back 10 minutes last and asked again what we wanted to drink and we told him we still didn’t have drink menus. Finally the manager came by and gave them to us. This was at least a twenty minute ordeal. My $55 dry aged steak was just that, dry. The steak had no juice, no flavor, tough, and was cooked rare not medium rare. When the waiter asked how our meal was I told him it was disappointing that I would be feeding my dog 75% of my steak given the above reasons. The manager apologized and gave us a piece of key lime pie. I didn’t expect anything drastic to happen on our bill but $200 dinner that was terrible with bad service should constitute more than a piece of pie. I won’t go back and will definitely warn anyone else on my experience

My wife and I chose Rick Erwin's West End because it was our 49th wedding anniversary. We had gone to the Salt Water Cafe last year and it was fantastic, but not open this year because of the China virus. Everyone was especially cautious about the virus protocol and our waiter, Ryan, made the evening a great experience. We were impressed with the creative menu. The blackened Red Fish was on par with any restaurant in Texas or New Orleans and the deserts were creative and delicious.
