Not what it used to be pre-covid, but still worth trying. We may have caught them on an off night.

We were celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary with dinner at Rick Erwin‘s. We got the table we asked for, the wait staff was very good, The food was excellent and we had a very nice dinner. Rick came around to say hello as always which makes it very personable. We had cocktails at the bar first and Joey remember what we both drank. A good time had by all

Special appetizer was cold. Steak was great, crab gnocchi was just ok. In the past, servers would clean the table when they cleared plates by scooping crumbs. Just didn’t feel the service was superior as it should be for one of Greenville’s finest. The last visit was so-so but I thought that was a one time thing—but it was so-so again. They need to bring back some of the favorites also.

I came across this restaurant online because I was going to be doing shopping in the area & wanted to eat somewhere very nice. This was such a awesome choice that I picked. Everything was wonderful down to the alcoholic beverage me & my sister picked.

Went here for a business meeting. The food was superb but came out a bit quickly for our liking. That may have been the server's (in)experience. However, Rick Erwin personally coming over to the table to introduce himself and thank us all for coming to his restaurant was unexpected, but a very nice touch. Would highly recommend for special occasions or business meals.

An outstanding meal with great service made for a wonderful birthday dinner for my wife. The food was delicious and prepared perfectly, the ambiance there with the dark woods and linen tablecloths is the perfect setting. Lauren did an outstanding job serving us and Mr. Erwin even stopped by to say hello. It was the perfect evening.

Overall it was a great experience and good time. Our service was absolutely outstanding, our server was very informative and helpful. We felt a bit crowded as if the restaurant was overbooked and we just were squeezed in on top of other guest. The food was great but definitely not as delicious as we felt it should’ve been for the cost.

We had a 7:15 reservation and didn't get our table until 7:40. We waited in the bar and the bar tender was great as were the drinks he prepared. Our server was very nice, but seemed inexperienced. They served complimentary bread crisps but when we finished them, they took our plates away and then they served a complimentary bread loaf that was delicious. The server needed a crumb scraper as one of his standard tools to clear bread crumbs off the table. The wine list was good. We chose the Pappardelle & Meatballs and a grilled salmon on mushroom risotto. Everything about the two meals was great except the salmon was overcooked. Although this is not a five-star rating, I would enjoy eating at Rick's West End again in the future.

Server was great, but the service was fairly slow because the kitchen was behind. And after all that, both the steak and tuna were over cooked. We ordered medium and medium rare, and they came out medium well and medium. Their market prices are ridiculous, so always ask! $14 for a side of asparagus? Seriously? No thanks, I’ll take the $9 salad instead. Overall, we enjoyed it but probably wouldn’t return.
