Always a great meal. We're very picky eaters when it comes to steak. I grew up in the Midwest with a Dad who grills fantastic steak and taught us all how to do the same. My wife only likes her steak well-done, which isn't the easiest thing to do and keep it tender and juicy. West meets our expectations time and time again, plus with the menu always having a little variation, I can try something new each time we go. This meal with a bottle of wine was around $220 with tip I believe or maybe that was before the tip. Either way, it isn't cheap, but I'm much happier spending the money here than spending $150 at a place that doesn't come close to their food, service, or ambience. In my opinion, they can't be beat unless you head farther south.
very well run, pleasant service, steak and fish "meh" for this price range. terrific mac and cheese side dish. serviceable, ok experience--do noy expect Mastros, Boa or Morton's!
As always Chuck, Cari, Sean and Team make my out of town quest and myself feel like family. And the foods great.
This was a horrible example of a beautiful place with acoustic issues! We drove way out of our way to dine there for my husband's birthday - we took his mother with us and when we left our ears were ringing from the unbearable noise. It was like we had been to a concert.
The staff was friendly, but not expert at service for Fine Dining.....I think they are over priced for what you get.
Island Prime wins HANDS DOWN - we won't return to West....
My Birthday dinner was very good. The place has a nice ambiance perfect for romantic dinner. The staffs are very friendly and good service. The food is great, but very pricy. Overall the place is very good.
Nice restaurant but way overpriced for location and food.
The Chilean Sea Bass was "Melt in your mouth" incredible. They went out of their way to make our anniversary a night to remember.
Consistently good food and excellent service.
We had an excellent experience at West. The maitre d' was great, and the waitstaff very attentive. The chef should be commended for a job well done on all of the food. The staff also realized that we were in for two anniversary celebrations, and was kind enough to take care of our dessert. All in all a great restaurant and I would highly reccomend.
Ahi Poke is super good and steak made to perfection.
West Steak & Seafood is the best Steakhouse in North County San Diego! The service is impeccable, ambiance delightful and the food is "over the moon" delicious. Wonderful menu and exquisite wine list. A real find!
Atmosphere: a little on the darker side and a little cold (if you're older, bring a sweater and reading glasses for the menu).
Service: Excellent - very attentive
Food: Amazing! Melt-in-your-mouth fillet, a very delicious take on escargot.
Best filet mignon anywhere. A little pricey, but definitely worth the expense. Treat yourself!
Food and Service was GREAT! Being from Nebraska and haveing enjoyed some of the best steaks in the world, this locations is on the top of my list of BEAT RESTAURANTS!
The food and service was simply outstanding! the noise level in the restaurant was a little high. it was hard to talk across from each other. I think some of the reason was we were seated close to the kitchen. The quality of the food and service made up for it.
Extremely great service. Food was very good and the portions are huge, I will absolutely go back again.
We dined here for the first time. The staff were friendly, helpful, and attentive from the moment we entered the front door. The food was amazing! My entree of filet mignon, scallops, shrimp, and lobster was devine! The crab cakes and ahi appetizers were delicious!
The noise level was higher than I expected. The restaurant was quite busy, so I didn't find the ambience to be conducive for a quiet, romantic date. Additionally, for a restaurant of this quality and price (on the higher end), I was a little disappointed at how casually many of the patrons were dressed. Some were in t-shirts and shorts, which I didn't think was appropriate for a high end steak house like West. For the price and quality, a dress standard should be enforced.
As usual, the food was wonderful, the staff friendly and accomodating, and the whole experience memorable.
The best steak house in North County! Great food, great service, what more can I say?
We ate here for our 43rd anniversary. Both of us had the fillets which were cooked to perfection. The wait staff was attentive without overdoing it. Although the wine list is extensive, we had some special wines that we brought for the occasion. Corkage fee was reasonable. All in all, a great dining experience.
Vastly improved since our first visit just after opening. Near perfection in every dimension.
My wife and I went to West for our anniversary for the first time and we were very impressed. The food was fantastic! We will be back for sure.
I thought West Steak & Seafood was beyond amazing!! We had the carpaccio for starters and the prime filet and rib-eye steaks. Everything was exceptional! Our waitress was very helpful and extremely nice! I would recommend West to anyone looking for a romantic evening out!
The West has been our favorite restaurant for many years....we just keep coming back...the servers are all super and make for a great dining experience...we take all of our out of town guests to the WEST and they want to go back when they are back in town.
We thought this restaurant was OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!! THE BEST STEAK WE EVER HAD AND WE'RE FROM CHICAGO. We had a shrimp cocktail that was very delicious! Our steaks were cooked perfectly and very very tender. The service was impeccable! It was a great dining experience! We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone!
Outstanding menu!! I'm a big steak eater, but also enjoy good seafood. The menu is so diverse we had a difficult time deciding which entrees to order. I had the NY steak, my lady nhad the ribeye; both were excellent. We both took some home.
This is a wonderful Steak House located behind a pretty gas station. The people who work there go out of their way to make your experience a good one. We think it is a great place for a special occasion which is why we chose to go there on our anniversary.
Love the steak here I would choose The West over ruth chris any day! They Cook the steaks perfectly so perfect infact when you heat up your left overs from the night before it is just as good as when you ate it the first time. The service is amazing! The food is well worth the money!!
it was a birthday celebration nd no mention of this at all - very disappointing - if the food wsn't so delicious i would not recommend for a special occassin because of this. i had specified this in my reservation mdoes this restaurant not acknowledge this? Please give a follow up
Awesome food always a great experience.
Had the best steak in California. The meat was deliciously tender and flavorful, and was perfectly cooked. The sides were not so great. Excellent service. Very expensive, but worth it.
Excellent food and service. I highly recommend West Steak & Seafood for any special occasion.
We had great steaks,a wonderful place ,nice restaurant
what a dinner....awesome from start to finish...bone in rib eye to die for...great wine list and perfect service...I will return...
Our meal at West was thoroughly enjoyable. The wait staff is attentive and accommodating. From the warm individual ciabatta rolls and lobster spring rolls to the entrees and dessert of creme Brulee everything was incredibly tasty! For our entrees our party ordered the bone in filet and the 8 oz filet, both were cut with a butter knife tender. The lobster pasta dish that my daughter got was delish! And the Lamb that my other daughter got was done perfectly. The only negative thing about West is that the prices are high and for being so near the beach there's no view. But the interior design of the restaurant is beautiful, a little dark, tho. Oh and the other patrons were dressed casually so don't fuss over your outfit!
We eat @ West regularly (15 times in a year).The food,ambiance,serive is outstanding;one of the best in North County.However,the host (Eddie) still has no idea who we are,always treats us as it's our first visit.Although annoying we ignored this until our last visit.Again we were met by his blank look,asked if we had a reservation (yes we did).We explained we wanted a table with David (one of our fav of the great wait-staff).At first Eddie was not sure,then said yes.We went to the bar,had a drink (our choice as we were a little early).They came & got us,said they had a table ready with David.Then David came by & said he was "being releived for the night" and was asked to leave.Eddie needs to know his regulars or they won't be for long!
waiter Jeremy was very attentive.
I booked this reservation during our family trip to Legoland. It was our wedding anniversary. We arrived 2 minutes early and we were seated promptly. The lighting was candle light and romantic. The service was excellent. We both had the steak and lobster with prawns. The food was cooked to perfection and amazing. We left full and satisfied. We will definitely make this an annual event.
Great food. Specials and steak were superb. I would recommend to anyone that wants something extra.
Ambiance was good buy almost too dark & you had to talk over the noise level.
