I had a reservation there with my boyfriend and we walked in and stood there for a few minutes and nobody noticed us so we thought we came in the wrong side so we went to the other end and waited and nobody came to serve us so we sat down at a table that has a reserved sign, still took a couple minutes for somebody to serve us and when they finally did they just gave us a menu and walked away and there was only 2 people working with a full house

Nice dinner on Christmas Eve. Probably shouldn’t have chosen a high top near the bar due to all the mingling at our elbows. That was distracting but overall the food was enjoyable & the pop up music was entertaining. Made for a nice Christmas Eve with some family from afar.

This is an unusual option in Buena Vista and stands out as one of the hipper, upscale options in this area of Colorado. We had Christmas dinner here and loved their food. Service was slow/inattentive, but live music, great menu and the right decor was enough for me.

Food at Westley and Rose is awesome. We just wish they had pizza on the menu at all times since they make the best in town!! Service was a bit off when we were there last, but we enjoyed ourselves anyway. Nice wine. Wish they had some less expensive choices, but this is still one of our favorites in BV.

Too expensive for our area, music was so loud we couldnt hear each other even tho we asked it to be turned down. Some main courses were very skimpy for the price. We had to send our main course back to kitchen due to being raw and cold. Bread and appetizers were best part of everything ordered. May go back for appetizers.
Also is it legal for staff to drink alcohol while on duty!!! That was happening.

My family came here today for brunch and loved it. What a beautiful restaurant with gorgeous views of the stream. Very unique and special spot in Buena Vista. The food was truly excellent as well; we had the crab benedict, shrimp and grits, and skirt steak sandwich. I just love the aesthetic of this place, very modern with a 1930s influence. Can't wait to come back!

We went here for a special dinner to celebrate our 1 yr anniversary. We were not impressed with the food options or the service we received. The water tasted funny and even though new water was brought to us, it still tasted bleachy. I was over charged for my cheese and meat board. I ordered the half board and charged the full board. We didn’t realize tell we left. I would not recommend this place for a special occasion and I would suggest that they look at other menu options to be added in the future.

I booked a dinner table to celebrate my spouse's birthday Thursday evening Oct. 18, 2018. We were seated at an "ice cream" sized table, about ten feet from the main entrance. The comings and goings of patrons and staff behind the table was very distracting and not conducive to an enjoyable dining experience. The very small table would not accommodate half of the the ordered dishes. The waitress did not clear the table before bringing additional food items which caused uncomfortable shifting of plates, food and drink to an adjacent table and food items spilling onto the floor. The waitresses service was lackadaisical at best and absent when needed. The table chairs were too small therefore uncomfortable which again, is not
conducive to an enjoyable dinning experience.

The small plate orders of the meat and cheese board, assorted breads and butters, tomato and cheese salad, salsa artichoke hearts and the baked cheese skillet were very good and enjoyed. The wine list was adequate however we were served a bottle of what I guess was Santa Barbara Chardenay without a label which was open and and poured without a commit or a chance to taste.

I accept partial responsibility for the disappointing outcome because I made an assumption that the
W & R was more than a bar and a short order place.

Pork chop was excellent. Pizza was way overcooked, had to have a new one.
The drinks were very good. Only two booths, the rest of the seating is long
tables for 8 plus a few small tables. A bit pricey. New place, interesting, but
a bit disappointing. But we would go back again....

We’ve been anxious to try Wesley & Rose and they didn’t disappoint. The Wizard Trick cocktail and Cast Iron Baked Cheese were Delicious! Also loved the Pork Chop and grilled apples. The atmosphere fits perfect with the quaintness of Buena Vista. Looking forward to nice weather to dine on the river front patio!

Happy hour 3-5 before dinner. Great drink and snacks specials. We were going to have dinner but we had the small plates. The skirt steak was very good. The Patagonia Shrimp was excellent, great flavor and great size portion, I ordered another for my dinner. The olive were a nice variety. The stuffed Pueblo chili were really good
also. Had them at happy hour and at dinner. Took walk along river after happy hour.

The staff was so friendly and inviting (naturally BV style) everything was clean, the atmosphere was very laid back and if you sit outside you have a view of the river. Highly recommend!

All 6 in our party thoroughly enjoyed their meal! We each tasted what the others had ordered and all was so good. There is so much ambience in this restaurant. It is a great place for a special occasion, but I would recommend you go just to have a delicious meal.
I shared the pork chop and the Gorgonzola salad. Both were good. We all shared the key lime pie (one of the best). The house wine was excellent, also. I had the house chardonnay and would order it again. Go, you will enjoy your meal.
