Loved the food and the service! Amazing little placs
Everything was wonderful! I'm still thinking about the pesto sausage flatbread two days later. Will definitely be back soon!
Customer service was awesome and so was the food.
We loved it! Beautiful space, views, and wonderful food and wine. The perfect Valentine's Day dinner. We live in the neighborhood and will definitely be back frequently.
Good was outstanding and service was fast. The location across from the estuary is nice. Definitely a good place to eat and enjoy the ambience.
Cobwebs, and Christmas lights with a rough waitress in an enclosed outdoor patio and not spaced out enough tables.
Wonderful dinner experience! We were out on a Saturday night and all restaurants in the Del Mar Plaza were packed at 7pm. A quick look at Open Table and West End showed up as having an open reservation at 7:30pm. I called them after booking the reservation to make sure it was ok to bring a small dog. When we arrived there was plenty of parking and they sat us right away. The food was really good, everyone raved about their choice. Loved the chipotle pasta and the crab ravioli, and the duck dish looked very good. Kara made our dinner a lot of fun, even brought a small treat for my friend's puppy. I am not a local to San Diego but my friends are and I can tell you they will be returning soon. I definitely will next time I am down there.
Very nice outside seating areas and a partially outside covered area. Happy to have back in our rotation. Food is always great. Full bar. Nice winelist. One of our regular favorites.
Great menu, great brunch and have had great dinners in the past!
This is a wonderful restaurant and dining experience. Sal and his crew made our dinner an enjoyable experience and the food was excellent! Highly recommend the experience.
First time at the restaurant. We were one of two tables occupied in the whole restaurant. The fish tacos were too salty to eat. The pancakes where flat like cardboard. We complained and they still made us pay for us. Service was horrible we had to walk into the indoor dinning area twice to get our waitress attention. She didn't even follow up with us to see if our brunch was good. The whole experience was horrible.
Food was fantastic. Ambience was very cozy and covid friendly. Lovely evening
Such a great spot! Highly recommend for a nice breakfast with a view.
Awesome food and wonderful ambiance. I highly recommend their “Clam Chowdah"
Will definitely be back!
Great menu and value for brunch and a definite improvement from the previous place Iris.
The food is consistently delicious and great quality as well as a good value. Sunsets are very nice there as well. We felt they did a good job of spreading out the tables outside and felt safe. We were able to see the football game from inside through the glass which was nice. Great spot!
We always have great meal at West End! They had half off all wine bottles that weekend and we took advantage. Service was great and the food was excellent. Loved the Brussel sprouts appetizer!
Love this restaurant! They have great drinks and the menu is amazing.
although we were able to get a table well-distanced from others, Ithoughtinmany place the tables were too close together to be safe during the pandemic.
Nice setting looking toward Torrey Pines beach. Duck potstickers, $12, decent flavor, a little dry, pan fried, with sweet chili and lemon grass dipping sauce. Crispy calamari, $14, crusted with Panko. Small, circular, portions, sausage-sized, about a half inch in radius, tough, served with marinara sauce and soy wasabi. Prime beef short rib stew, $33. Braised short ribs, with carrots, mushrooms, potato. A bit dry. Disinterested service, as if in a hurry to turn the table.
Great for brunch before or after Torrey Pines hike!
Really great service! A cool ambiance and the food/drinks were delicious! Would definitely go back
Very yummy. Accommodating of our children, too. Fresh.
Great food and service
I think that I found a new favourite local place. Great food and ambiance.
Awesome place. Kinda like a high end neighborhood restaurant
Creative and appealing food choices. Great service and a beautiful view!
West End Bar & Kitchen was such a pleasant surprise. We went for brunch and had a wonderful experience. The food was good, the service friendly and prompt, and the view was fantastic. Overall great experience.
Excellent food and service. Due to Covid went very early hoping for fewer diners and that worked well.
The crusted pork, duck, clam chowder were excellent. Good value and will definitely return and recommend.
Good food quality but somewhat bland. We had seafood crepes and veal raviolis. I will come back but will try something different.
Servers were extremely friendly and helpful. Food was delicious.
Excellent food with generous portions and great service.
The service was great! Our server was attentive and friendly. The food was well prepared and tasted good. It was a good selection to choose from. Nice, casual environment. I’d recommend this place.
We had a very pleasant visit with no issues. Food and service was great, clean and friendly.
First time we tried duck and pork and it was the most delicious duck and pork we have ever eaten. We’ll be definitely back many times more and try all menu!!!
Have been there twice now. Very friendly, and wonderful food!
Very reasonable quality food. Don't miss this place when in the area.
We really enjoyed our brunch here but the flies on the indoor patio we're almost unbearable. Very annoying. Other than that our experience was great!
Great food, nice service, cool location. Thank you; we'll be back!!
Such a cute place. Local vibe, easy parking, attentive staff and delicious food at fair prices! What more could you ask for? Will definitely be back!
