During restaurant week we chose West Coast. Previous experience was not good, but this was outstanding. Our server was enthusiastic, provided information and was genuinely friendly. Food was great. Fish tacos and salmon cooked perfectly. Sat in the bar area to enjoy happy hour; will definitely be back.

Love this place! The food is always good. Some had the hamburger with a salad; although a couple of people wanted ranch and nothing like that is available. I love something different so I was fine with unusual dressing choices. The special of the day was quiches and everyone enjoyed that as well. Our server Jason is great!

Our meal started great, our service was fantastic. When dinner was served we were not impressed. Crab cakes were mostly filler and very small, with a side dish that over had too many flavors to enjoy what was in it. My husbands mahi had so much peppercorn he could not eat it and his side dishes were bland. So, from one end of the table to the other the dishes were opposites. We went with a gift card and glad we did, our total was way to high for what we ate of our meals. Bummer!

The seafood entrees are very trendy and pricey. Small plates seemed to be better choices. There was not a large crowd but was very noisy. We were in a booth and had a hard time hearing one another. Our waitress was excellent. She was attentive, friendly and offered suggestions. Great decor. Not sure I'd go back but it is worth checking out.

Very good meal! Everyone enjoyed the burgers, the crab sandwich, fries and lava cake dessert for my husband's birthday! They did not have the blueberries for the blueberry pancakes so had to choose something else. We were very pleased.

West Coast Provisions was an unexpected treat. We took some friends there for dinner and the food and service were excellent. I will go back on my own, as there were several interesting looking dishes.

I had the fish tacos which were the right serving size and very good.

Ate dinner at West Coast on a Saturday night with reservations. We were seated right away as there were very few patrons in the restaurant. I guess that was the indicator of poor quality. Considering this is a specialty restaurant (seafood) I was not impressed by any item that I tasted. Ordered the raw oysters and each one had shell shards. Shouldn't happen at a seafood restaurant. Also had the tuna carpaccio which was very odd in presentation and taste. Not sure it was even tuna as the color of the "tuna" was white. I had the scallop entree which only comes with 3 scallops. The entree is served with rice which was watery. All in all not a good experience and don't think I will return

We were celebrating 3 birthdays. The tables are very small. Our party of 6 was rather crammed together with seated tables next to us so not much room to spread out. Service is excellent, mixed drinks and beer selection excellent, menu is delicious. We were told we would have an opportunity to have Birthday dessert brought out but that didn’t happen and dessert wasn’t even offered by our waitress, so we just skipped that portion of the meal. Overall, a place we will definitely go back to again.

Me and my wife had a dinner date, the server was very attentive and so polite. The food on the other hand wasn’t up to the standard we thought. I had the lamb rack and it was okay, I was hungry so I ate it. My wife had the 6oz filet mignon, she ordered it medium but It was more of mid rare and her asparagus was hard even though it seemed grilled. We didn’t say anything to the server because we didn’t want to be that couple. It seemed as if our food was rushed since the kitchen was about to close in 35 minutes. I understand the cooks point of view on pre-cleaning to leave on time or early. I don’t think anyone should receive Poor quality food, doesn’t matter if the kitchen closes in 2 minutes. Every guest deserves to have a nice meal, that was our first time dining in and don’t think well give it another shot. I’m guessing don’t dine in after 8 pm, you may be disappointed.

Dinner at the bar was very enjoyable - service was outstanding and dinner delightful. My only gripe was the charge for soda water, even with ordering 5 drinks between my wife and I.

Nice place. Been there three times and all have been consistent. Oysters are are handled well and are very good. Everyone at our table(5) enjoyed their meal. Desserts are good.

Staff did good job considering it was a Saturday and they were quite busy. We will go back..

Food was awesome - try the rockfish, you won’t be disappointed with the combination of flavors. Volume of the restaurant was perfect for us - you could hear everyone at the table without having to shout, but yet there was a nice buzz of noise the entire time we were there. We will definitely be back.

A pleasant surprise, though way out of town. First time here a few nights ago. Five of us, and everyone was pleased. Attentive service, lovely ambience & contemporary decor, and best of all, excellent food. The tuna carpaccio and shrimp & grits were excellent. I prefer my shrimp & grits without competing heavy flavors (barbeque or bacon) and this was just what I like. Generous portions as well. The tuna was beautifully plated and delicious. Other folks had oysters, sushi and branzino and all plates were clean. And, omg, the house made donuts for dessert were scrumptious. Definitely recommend.

My Family and I were looking forward to trying this new restaurant in the West End and although we loved the restaurant's ambiance and the service was very good, the food was a bit above average and we expected it to be excellent. The roasted potatoes were half cooked and half hard and the rockfish was just blah. It really had no flavor or accompanying flavors as in a sauce. The appetizers were delicious and full of flavor. I will come back another time and try again, and hope that the whole meal will be on point.

This was our first visit. We will definitely be back as there was so much on the menu that we wanted to try but couldn't. We went with the Sushi/Sashimi small plates and then split a delicious Rockfish and Polenta Entree which left room for the absolutely delicious butterscotch pudding with homemade shortbread for desert. Oh, and I high recommend The Expat cocktail!
