Halibut with Gnocchi and Grouper with crabmeat- absolutely amazing! Gotta try the metamorphosis drink— and a James was a stellar waiter with such a positive attitude! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Our visit to Rick Erwins was amazing. The food was absolutely delicious and the steak was cooked to perfection. Our server Justin was amazing he had a answer for everyone question we asked without hesitation and knew all the specials. He is an amazing server look forward to coming back to dine and Rick Erwins again.

big parties made it noisy and a long wait. not the restaurant's fault but we were an hour late to our final destination. a heads up would've been nice but our server was polite, apologetic, and accommodating. not the air we were expecting. food was great, we may have just chosen a wrong time

The food was excessively over priced and the quality of it wasn’t any where close to the price. I have had a fillet at Longhorns or Outback just as good or better than the one I had there. The only part of our meal that was good and could even be remotely close to value was the Calamari appetizer. We were extremely disappointed, our diner was $225, with tip, for my wife and I and it wasn’t worth 1/4 of that. The service and the atmosphere were very good, so I would rate them high for that aspect.

We Had the trout and grouper. The grouper was EXCELLENT but Would have enjoyed the trout more not o so drowned with brown butter and with some acid and same is true of a special request for a foie gras plate which I commend the effort. The service was over the top fantastic from bar to table - James was our server and he made everything so special - brought grilled lemons for my trout! This was my husbands 60th and James really added the finishing touch to our evening! Professional, knowledgeable, friendly and engaging - thanks again James you made our night!

First time here and won't be last. A classic steakhouse. Amazing food. Our server James was excellent. And Rick Erwin in person stopped by our table to say hi, who does that anymore 🤷🏻‍♀️

The food was fantastic, the service was great, the lighting made for a nice date atmosphere. Overall it was a fantastic location to take my wife of 18 years on a daye.

My only gripe was it was uncomfortably warm in the building, I wore a polo and jeans and was hot, so I felt bad for the wait staff who had to wear button shirts, ties and then a jacket on top.

We were greeted kindly, sat at a nice table. They were prepared with a nice greeting card signed by the staff for our anniversary. The waitress was knowledgeable and on time. The restaurant is slightly outdated, only bc we have been going there for probably 15 years. It still looks exactly the same, down to the leather pillows on the lobby bench. The food is always exceptional, but could maybe have used a garnish for the $46filet. Overall it works, we left happy.

We have eaten here several times and the food is always outstanding. It is a bit pricey so we tend to save it for special occasions. Mr. Erwin frequently circulates in the restaurant to make sure patrons are well cared for.

But not just for special occasions….. Yes we were celebrating our 40th anniversary, yes we had a lovely table with a anniversary greeting, our waiter Breonon was great, professional, warm and interested in our experience……. she had efficient backup staff. And yes, our dinner selections were delicious and creative, fresh and memorable. And yes, West End Grille is not just for special occasions. We find ourselves returning when we’re looking for just fine dining…… We always come away with smiles, knowing we’ll return again soon.

The restaurant is always very nice and on the upscale when dining. Service is great. So is the food. The only disappointment I had this time was the music was rather loud. Difficult to hold a conversation at the table while dining.

Arrived at 8 pm for our 8 pm reservation (that was called and confirmed twice) and we were told our table wasn’t ready yet. The lobby was full of people waiting for their tables. The restaurant was incredibly noisy and not the usual relaxing, upscale ambiance. At 8:20 we left, without a table. Thankfully valet hadn’t even moved our car yet (after 20 mins). We love Rick Erwins and even had our rehearsal dinner there in 2018 but last night was NOT the typical level of service you would expect from them. Extremely disappointed and it will be awhile before we try to go back.

We booked a reservation so that we did not have to wait around as we knew it would be busy. We still had to wait close to 45 minutes to be seated and another 20 minutes to get a waiter to come to us. The A/C was out, but they were still running full service; I️ felt so bad for the sweaty mess of waitresses and waiters. Food didn’t take a long as we thought it would, but I️ didn’t receive part of my meal until dessert which they did comp. Overall, a lot of problems that night.

The restaurant is very busy on the weekends. We went there for a 7:45pm reservation on a Saturday night. They were VERY backed up- we finally got seated at 8:15. Its is a tough time to be in the restaurant business, I understand- not enough staff and I'm sure servers get sick etc. BUT if you know you are running late CALL me- they called to confirm the reservation that day.
Once we were seated the food was delicious.
