We went there twice in one week. The food was fantastic both times. The dining room is beautifully decorated and clean. The service was fantastic on our first visit. On our second, our waiter was drinking wine with friends at the bar and was kind of rude.

I really enjoyed the hotel and restaurants ambiance. The food was good, we all had meat dishes but the
pork chop was overdone. However, I've eaten brunch there and the food was delicious so I recommend
having that meal when you can eat out on the patio. The bar has a good vibe as well.

Made a reservation using open table for this restaurant at 7:00 pm, hired a babysitter, and drove 35 minutes, only to have no hostess great us at the door. After 10+ minutes of waiting, we were told that we had no reservation, and that the system "never works." A table was found (with a flippant "you are lucky we have a table" rather then a "so sorry, how can we make this right). There was no waiter to take our order and no acknowledgement that by the time our drink order was taken, we had waited over 30-minutes from the start of our reservation. We were told the kitchen was backed up and the restaurant was understaffed and we would not be able to get food within the hour. While the restaurant was gorgeous and the few appetizers we ordered were delicious, we sadly could not have the dinner we intended for my husband's birthday. So we drove home at 8:30 without dinner (having had a reservation at 7:00) and ordered a pizza, which was waiting for us! Could not be more disappointed.

Even though I had a reservation, they seemed unprepared. The service was sub-par for the price and the food was the quality that was expected for the price. The ravioli had so much olive oil you could see pools of it in the sauce. The sauce did not stick to the pasta as a result. The focaccia seemed to be straight out of the oven, which would have been great if it had been any other type of bread, in this case it was too spongy. The spaghetti was mushy and there were few noodles with huge meatballs. The dessert was fantastic. The key lime pie was absolutely delicious and presented beautifully. I wonder if their cook is a pastry chef? The dining area was quite loud, it wasn't a huge area and the noise came from the dining area as well as the bar around the corner. I had hoped for better since I had seen references to the restaurant as the nicest place in town.

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....
