This Friday was the second time we dined at West Coast Provisions. The previous time was a Thursday. On both visits the food was excellently prepared. Tasty and good portions. The main detraction is the noise level. There is nothing soft in the restaurant, so on both occasions, but especially a crowded Friday, it was difficult to hear others at our table. Not bad if you read lips.

I tried calling the reservation line but never received a confirmation that they had picked up the voicemail. So I used Open Table where a confirmation is sent immediately.

Enjoyable atmosphere food is phenomenal. Thank goodness this restaurant has decided to open up in the WestEnd of Richmond Virginia. With so many chain restaurants opening lately, providing poor service, quality of food being unacceptable happiness has been delivered. I know they are working on reducing the noise level. The architectural design didn't pick up on this. That being said yelp is about food great job guys.

My first time there and I loved it.
We had a great bottle of wine. Loved the cheese plate.
The corn and crab soup was to die for.
Server was delightful.

Food is creative and delicious. Lots of options. Server was un-engaged and did not know food & preparations particularly well. Trainable, maybe? Competition is hot in the area. Nonetheless, I'd try it again in a few months.

We celebrated a friends birthday here with a large group. The food and cocktails were amazing! Overall the service was good but we arrived at exactly our reservation time with 10 of the 11 present. We waited to be seated as they had not yet set our table, they didn’t start on it until after we checked-in. After being seated we were still one chair short which we had to ask for several times. It took us about 40min to receive our first round of drinks, thankfully the second didn’t take as long but it was a little frustrating. All and all everyone enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

We really enjoyed our dinner. However, we thought we were going to sit inside but it was way too noisy. (Can you do something about the noise level??). Luckily, we were able to sit at a table outside - and as soon as we went out the door we noticed how much quieter it became - so we were able to carry on a conversation.

The noise level is high inside. It might be a good idea to add noise buffers to decrease the sounds. It is hard for people with hearing aids or people with hearing disabilities to be in areas that are loud.

The food and service were excellent!

This was our first time at this new offering in Short Pump. The food was excellent. We had sushi (spicy tuna) to start; the dish could not have been better! Our two entrees were both seafood, Rockfish and Wahoo. the Rockfish was excellent, perfectly cooked and well seasoned. The Wahoo was ordered grilled; it arrived somewhat undercooked, but tasty nonetheless.
Our only negative was the service. We specifically asked that the entrees be delayed somewhat so that we could enjoy our drinks and sushi. In spite of this specific request, while still savoring the last bite of sushi, and with portions of our cocktails still in the glass, the entrees appeared. We felt rushed, to say the least. We will still go back, but next time we will order our entrees later in the process.

Other than delay of food, nice brunch.

The night started with water being spilled on us and overcooked food in bowls but other than that it was not a bad time. The drinks that we ordered weren't bad and the desert was good, but I don't think I will be back for a little while and try it again later or maybe a different time of day. I love East Coast, and I was hoping that I would love this place just as much seeing how close to home it is but that's not the case from this time.

I went to West Coast Provisions with some friends for lunch. The food was all delicious as were the drinks. The sangria was surprisingly light and fresh tasting. Those truffle fries are the reason I'll go back again though. If there was one drawback, it was the small portion of fish on my other wise large salad. The service was impeccable. I'd recommend West Coast to anyone.

Enjoyed our visit. Service was efficient and friendly. The shaved octopus appetizer was special. Also the tuna crudo. My daughter enjoyed the fish sandwich- a sizable fish filet, and tasty fries. The roasted grouper entree on polenta was tasty. Sushi sampler and east coast roll were great. Both deserts we tried : chocolate lava cake with ice cream and the bourbon pudding were delicious. Wine list is very adventurous- we ordered a bottle of Vinho Verde from Portugal and it complemented the food perfectly. The slight effervescence of the wine was refreshing. All in all, an excellent experience. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

First-time visiting; had placed our orders and then found out that we received the wrong menus, disappointed but give us more reason to go back for dinner to try the other items. Looking forward to the poke bowls becoming available soon. Drinks are expensive and delicious. Great place for lunch and people watching. Love the atmosphere and great service!

On average, 3.5 stars. Food was good, not great. Service was fair in that an order was taken and food delivered in a timely manner. No offers of recommendations, zero with the server interactions beyond being pressed to place a drink order (three times before we finally relented), him taking our order and bringing a check.

We probably wouldn’t return for a full-fledged dinner with many better options at the same price point. Might return for drinks/sushi/small plates in the beautiful atmosphere.

The dinner started off bad with the service. We waited about 10-15 minutes at our table before the server ever surfaced. This was then followed by extremely bland food. The kale Caesar salad tasted like mayo on kale. We all had to be pretty liberal with the diner style salt and pepper shakers on the table to gag it down. The sushi sampler we ordered was on the warm side and the rice was falling apart which made for a mess. Steak Frites was more fat than steak and the only decent things on the plate were the fries. Lobster roll was overpriced for what you get and the lobster meat tastes like it’s from a can and again didn’t have much flavor and definitely not a $24 entree. The wine glass that we were served was dirty as well.

The place is new and hasn’t been open long and it shows. The manager went out of their way and made it right at the end with some gift vouchers to come back and try them out again. This was appreciated but the chef might need help with cooking/seasoning food as they seem to be afraid of flavor.

On the upside, the restaurant decor is awesome. Very open and light and airy. I would probably close the doors to the outside be leaving them open as there were flies and gnats flying around the place.

Always enjoyed East Coast Provisions in Carytown for their great service, quality seafood selections and ambiance. West Coast Provisions likewise does not disappoint. The custom cocktail and menu selections are delicious, the quality of fresh local seafood and the friendly professional service make it a reliable "go to." Check out West Coast...you won't be disappointed.
