The entire experience was fantastic. The food was the best. The service was second to none. Justin, our waiter , made the experience very enjoyable. He is the best waiter!!
We will ask for him when we visit again.

We love coming here! Perfect for just the two of us or a gathering with our friends. Food and service is always top notch. Love that they have their most knowledgeable staff coming out to assist the servers with the wine. Fabulous wine selection and whiskey! Always fun to have a quick chat with Rick Erwin, who makes his rounds in the restaurant!😊

First of all, I want to make sure that everyone understands that service is a team effort and tonight our waiter was clearly frustrated from the lack of teamwork from kitchen staff. We were there to celebrate our anniversary and had a big letdown tonight. If Mr. Erwin was there tonight he would have been disappointed for sure. This was not the level of service that you would have expected from a high end establishment.

overall the food is always good, however, my $60.00 Dry aged Delmonico steak was very poor, tough and I probably didn't eat more than ten percent of it. I did tell my both the waitress and the Chef when he dropped by to see how dinner turned out. Our business guests enjoyed their meal, however, no one offered to remove the cost of the steak from my $850.00 bill.

Great start with convenient valet parking. Seated promptly. Soft lighting, maybe a bit dark. Great decor. Big wine list. Both chose 3 for 39 menu option. Very good. Piccata maybe a bit light on lemon. Still delicious. Second visit. We’ll be back.

Great Christmas Eve Dinner at Rick Erwin's. Our first time here as a family. Everything was excellent from the moment we walked in until we left. Hope we can do it again sometime in 2020.

The food was excellent and service was stellar. Unfortunately we were seated at a table that was much too small for our party. Our waiter even apologized for “cramped quarters”. We were seated with three people on a side that one person would normally sit. The next time we plan a special holiday dinner we will probably opt for a restaurant that has more thoughtful seating so that everyone can be comfortable and enjoy themselves.

Quality service and food. Pricey... but, that's the idea isn't it? Rick Erwin's makes for an excellent night out for a special occasion. I wish patrons wouldn't go to Rick Erwin's wearing hoodies and jeans, but I guess that is the world in which we now live. Restaurants use to have dress codes and would not seat customers who were dressed inappropriately... not any more! You could be hosting a business dinner with important guests and be seated next to a group who are dressed more appropriately for Denny's... and, act accordingly. That is my only problem with restaurants like Rick Erwin's - they should take their customer's attire into consideration when choosing which area of the restaurant to seat them. Keep the "formal" separated from the "casual." Thanks!!!

The service and food were exceptional, as usual, but the staff made our special occasion really outstanding with a card and many other extra touches we didn’t expect. Thank you all for going out of your way to help us celebrate 25 years of marriage! We couldn’t have chosen a better place or people with whom to spend the evening.

This was my second time at West End and just like my first time I was deeply impressed. Everyone was happy from the time we entered to the tine we had walked out. The food was fantastic! Can't wait to come back to eat some more great food.

We had our Christmas party there this past weekend. Restaurant was Rick Erwin's so wait staff was very well trained and all was very good there as always.

Everyone's steaks were a little dry, I took a pole and the potatoes were a little under done. So the food was not quite up to standards but all in all OK.

Thanks Rick for an enjoyable evening.

We had an outstanding time and the food was exceptional. We knew going in that it is an upscale, high priced restaurant. I just wish the prices were a bit lower so we could go more often. As a vegan, I found it nice that they were able to accommodate me, but it would be nice to have a few more options. Vegans go out to eat with meat eating friends and family often.

We didn’t go to Rick Irwin’s west end grille, we had dinner at a Rick Irwin’s Nantucket across from the Peace Center. The dinner was fabulous. We each had one of the days specials. Everything was prepared to perfection and the wait staff was very attentive.
