West Steak and Seafood Ratings and Reviews
food was awesome! i ordered the combination of filet mignon with 2 pcs of scallops and 2 pieces of jumbo shrimp for $59. hubby ordered the alaskan king crab legs and they were also delicious.
service was superb! our server was really attentive and took good care of us.
will definitely come back next time.
Our meal was truly delicious. We were pleased from the soup and lobster rolls thru every bite of dinner. I’ve been to West two or three times before and each time was special. I love that the chef doesn’t cover the wonderful flavor of the food with unnecessary suces or spices. So, you experience the quality and natural taste. Thank you
Francisco was out waiter and he was very attentive, but not over bearing. He was friendly and provided excellent service. It was my significant other's birthday and he surprised us with a nice dessert. Unexpected, but we were both very pleased with his service and the entire dining experience. Rib eye was perfect as was the spinach, mashed potatoes and cesar salad. We will definitely return and stay next door again.
Food was excellent as was the server, Keristen. However the drinks were not acceptable Both of our drinks were watered down so much they did not have any taste and we don't think there was any alcohol. We sent the drinks back and the new drinks were better but not to the level of the quality of the food and service. We will not go to be bar in the future and will probably stick to wine for our beverage.
This place exceeded my expectations, even after all the 5 star reviews. We were greeted immediately and seated by the time of our reservation. Ann Marie, our server was exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable about all aspects of the menu.
As for the food? The shrimp cocktail could have been an entree! The fresh vegetables were beautiful and cooked to perfection. The Chilean seabass was perfectly seared and flakey with a sauce to die for!
The desserts, well they were equally as delicious but we could only tolerate a few bites after our * entrees! Fortunately we live in the area and will definitely be back soon!
Wonderful restaurant for that special occassion or just for a great night out! We took our daughter in town for a visit and she just loves their food, atmosphere and service! Having been here many times, we have never been disappointed. Always a few specials in addition to the regular and very interesting menu too. Try the carrot cake if you can "fit it in" after a great meal. It is NOT your normal carrot cake. I really liked it, my wife thought it had too many flavors going on but still recommend it!
Their sister restaurant, West Bistro, recently closed so this place is very busy! Make sure you have a reservation. The bar fills up fast but also a fun place to hang out that is definately a "step up" from most in the area. The wine list is extensive, so make sure you ask if they have anything not on the printed list too!
The service and atmosphere was top notch. Drinks were great, food was good. For the price point there are definitely better options, but it is good. The starters are great, Chili was outstanding. The steak and lobster were just OK. I would totally recommend, but save your nice steak dinner outing for ruths chris or some of the better steak houses.
This was for my baby brother's 60th birthday friends and family; 8 guests in total, myself bein one of the hosts drove 2.5 hours for the occasion the server was fantastic took care of all of our needs.
My only issue was in the NY Strip I ordered at $52.00. While it was prepared as ordered(medium rare) I was realty disappointed in the thickness of the Strip, it was about 1" thick if that! When dinning at other like kind restaurants(Chris, Sullivans, Flemmings, Mastro, Duane's, Sparks/NYC, etc.) the strips have been considerably thicker, when dining at lesser restaurants and ordering a strip I will generally ask the thickness didn't think that would be necessary at West's!
Took my wife for Birthday dinner. Ordered Fish. It was cooked on the outside but was very MUSHY on the inside. If this is such a high end restaurant, it sure isn't doing a very good job with food preparation. Would be embarrassed to send any of my friends there.
This is our favorite go to place for Happy Hour in North County. Beautiful bar, great vibe, many selections and all of the food is delicious. We ate in the dining room for a change and I can say the filet mignon was as good as any I've ever had and done to perfection. They include 2 (generous) sides with your entree, unlike most steak houses that charge for your sides. Fresh ciabatta rolls, friendly wait staff. Doesn't get any better than this!
Perfectly cooked steak and lobster in a beautiful setting. The service was excellent . The booths are very comfortable and quiet enough for conversation. Get the mushrooms as a side. Delicious. I wish the prices were less, but for a special occasion, it was wonderful.
The happy hour here is amazing, but the menu is completely overpriced and not worth it. When I order a $53 piece of fish, I would expect a chef to select sides they feel appropriate to create a tasty dish. Instead you choose your sides and they're terrible. They literally brought out raw broccoli as one of my sides. If I wanted asparagus, that would have been an extra $8, which is ridiculous. We spent close to $275 and it was not worth it. I wouldn't go back again unless it was happy hour.
A perfect end to a rather challenging year......the wide open expansive seating area created a spacious feel.....our booth was comfy and easy for conversation.....oooops, almost forgot to mention the tasty lightly seasoned calamari, the roasted beet salad , and sooo tender and flavorful filet Mignon.......also, special kudos to our friendly and welcoming server, Anne Marie.....
We've been to West the last 3 New Year's Eves, so it's becoming an annual tradition. Food is always great, and last night was no exception
The chef even came out to make sure my food sensitive wife could eat what she ordered. Looking forward to being back next year, and hopefully sooner!
New Year's Eve dinner with the wife at 6pm. We split a sashimi appetizer and each ordered a martini. For dinner, I had the aged ribeye steak, and my wife had 1 lb king crab legs. Each of us ordered a glass of wine to go with dinner. Also added a carrot cake dessert to take home. As usual, food and service were superb. We love the place, but it's too expensive to keep in the rotation regularly. Couple times per year, we will splurge and thoroughly enjoy.
Had another great meal tonight on NYE with long time friends! Very nicely decorated in classic style with exceptional service by ALL! They seated us immediately at a great table with COMFORTABLE chairs to accommodate each of us. They also have many comfortable booths. They serve the regular menu at the regular prices even on NYE along with a few yummy sounding specials. The service, drinks, appetizer, entrees and desserts were all perfect. Martini and cosmos were icy cold and just right to start off with. The jumbo shrimp cocktail was nicely plated with sauces and little veggies. The Chilean Sea bass had a delicious sauce. The filet mignon was just right as always. We LOVED their fresh creamed corn! The rack of lamb was tender and juicy with a nice sauce. The carrot cake was huge and exceptional for the perfect ending to another year! Thank you for all working on NYE with a smile and making us feel welcome. Happy New Year and we’ll see you soon.
