Had been there years ago, new energy, vibe and big jump in tastiness. Great service for sure, nice, varied and healthy menu. Awesome calamari!
Food was impeccable and service was spot on. Great lunch spot.
The swordfish with pasta did not sound that exciting - but I ordered it anyway and it was absolutely fabulous. Just delicious. I loved it! I would go back and eat it again this week if it had not just been a special for the night I was there. Some of the items are from the old owners however they are prepared a bit differently and are much better. We will be back soon.
I highly recommend.
Good food and drinks, we enjoyed our meal and will certainly be going back!
As always, the food and service was amazing. Very large portions.
Excellent food with very decent portion size. I had the sea bass which was very good. My dad had the meatloaf which was very moist. Berry cobbler for dessert was fantastic. Will definitely visit again. Plenty of parking in the back or on the road.
Our first time for this renovated restaurant. Was busy and a bit understaffed for Valentine’s Day. Duck potstickers were great, entrees ( duck confit and crab crepes) were just ok/good. Smallest martini I ever had, and the server considered it normal. Will try again on a normal day.
Food was excellent. Sat at the bar the entire time even though we had a reservation. Well taken care of throughout the evening!
Had a reservation for valentines day. They sat us 30 minutes late . The calamari appetizer came cold, they put us on the patio by a heater that did not work and they raised the prices just for the holiday .
It was our first time there and we loved the location, food and service. We will definitely come back
My wife and I had the Duck Confit and it was delicious. We sat in the patio and it was very comfortable and quiet enough for easy conversation and listening level.
We thought sitting on the patio would give us a good view of the preserve, but the ugly plastic “windows” were down and
For a Monday evening, they were busy..... with not enough staff for the number of tables.
Food was good but was not hot when delivered which was after a prompt. NO action when Mike, the waiter was advised of that. A little pricey too. So we may not be back as there are so many choices in restaurants.
We love West End and always bring our out-of-town guests for the great location, friendly service and amazing duck potstickers. The fish special was not up the usual standards on this visit but we were there pretty late and everything else was excellent!
Great atmosphere. Nice place for large party. Food was great
Nice neighborhood restaurant.
First time there. Will go again. Food and service were superb!
Loved the food, the ambiance and the service! The cocktail we ordered was Ok, not great, but we were very pleased with our overall dining experience and will definitely be back!
The advertising talks about the view overlooking the lagoon. If the plastic wind protector shades were not opaque with dirt, we might have been able to see out. The food was just ok - had the carnitas tacos.
Friendly service. Limited parking but there are a few spaces on the street. The bucket of black muscles appetizers was plentiful and seaoned well. The lamb shank was moist and seasoned just right. The portin size of the lamb and vegetables easily lasted for two more meals. Would recommend to friends.
We love to bring guests to West End, the Duck Potstickers are amazing, the clam chowder is very authentic and my husband always enjoys the Lamb Meatloaf. I enjoyed the fish special this time too. I do wish there was a California Sauvignon Blanc on the menu and would also love to be able to get a burger at dinner, but we always have excellent service and enjoy the location!
Disappointed at dishes off menu, like catfish and chicken cassoulet. Not as creative as in the past.
It is always a culinary delight !
It is good to go there for special occasions.
Great food and ambiance. Drinks and wines were wonderful, and the calimari appetizer continues to be one of our favorites. Haven’t found a better north county restaurant
Excellent menu choices; excellent service; nice wine list.
Food was delicious. Waiter was attentive and polite. We really enjoyed our dinner/night at West End Bat & Kitchen.
Excellent food and very attentive service.
4 of us dined, four different dinners, one duck , one short ribs, one branzino and one Shrimp dinner. All were delicious . Deserts were yummy as well. We will be back.
The food was excellent, but the service was truly exceptional! And the chowdah is a MUST!
Excellent spot with wonderful food. We enjoyed the holiday decor and festive atmosphere during lunch. The salads, burgers, wraps and soup are all terrific and the servers very nice and friendly. West End is an A+!
Easy location, parking can be difficult. Menu was good. We really enjoyed the barrata cheese salad and calamari appetizers. Happy with fish dishes and duck.
Love this little neighborhood gem. Janette was very thoughtful and professional. My parents are senior with hearing loss and cognitive issues. Very attentive. The food was excellent. Great appetizers and entrees. Seafood crepes nice, but overpriced. Beef, fish, meatloaf... excellent. Salads are large!
It was a great experience and our server Brad was fantastic.
Went with a party of 7. Nice atmosphere-fairly quiet. Started with the mussels which had such a strong aroma it kind of spoiled the rest of the meal. My guess is that they were just a little old and definitely overdone. The cioppino unfortunately also had the mussels in it, but was okay otherwise.
Great crab cake sandwich - the brioche buns are nice! The crab cake is moist and delicious. Good cappuccino too! My friend enjoyed her HUGE burger, she couldn't finish because she kept eating the crisp warm fries that came with it. All in all a nice lunch - we'll go for dinner next time.
First time dining there. Food was superior. I had more than enough to take home fir a second dinner.
Great food... most of my party wasn’t as adventurous as the menu. My boss wanted to order from the kids menu. I thought the food was good. A little pricey but very good.
Nice location and decent food, but expensive and not many vegetarian/vegan options. Service good, however, server forgot to use our Groupon on the bill and we had to have the charge reversed, then re-charged. Would go back for happy hour and apps.
Was not sure what to expect when I made reservation. Am a foodie so I tend to appreciate great care in preparation of my food. The service was good but we went early. The food was delicious and generous portions. The menu versatile and anyone can find something to eat. The traffic noise bothered me at first but after an hour, it died down. The skyline was amazing with hues of sunset. Definitely will go back ... maybe lunch next.
Great staff and the food was delicious. The place was really neat and I would go back!
