The staff made this a special night for the birthday couple. The food was creative and delicious.
This is our special go-to place since the food, service, ambiance is always stellar. I must say that our recent visit came with the slowest service we've ever had. Our dinner was 2 hours long. It took 45 min to order dinner and 45 min to get our meals. BUT, the food is outstanding and the ambiance is terrific. Hopefully next time service will be back to normal.
My absolute favorite spot for dinner years running now! Never a letdown!
We’ve eaten at some of the best steak restaurants all over the world and West at least compares, if not better, to them all. Absolutely divine food and service.
Well done. Great staff food is excellent although pricy well worth it
Great service. Lived our waitress - very knowledgeable about her wines.
Only thing I’d say was waiter could have been more attentive. He did suggest a wine which for the price was mediocre. I’m sure he was getting rewarded for selling it - saw Mgr /wine guy give him a atta boy look when he turned in order.
Food was very good. Extensive (expensive) wine list. Extremely noisy crowded venue. It seems they cater to large business groups on expense accounts. This is not the place for a quite dinner with your spouse. You can count on a $200 plus tab for dinner for two with wine!
Steaks cooked perfectly.
This is the second time we have gone here, and the second time was as good as the first. The food was wonderful. The steak was perfectly cooked and the crab cakes could hardly stay together.
Terrible! Table for 4
$ 490.00 dinner, loud, seated by the bus station, rookie hostess.
The best steak we have had in a long time. Vegetables were fresh and cooked perfectly. A wonderful experience
A little pricy but worth every penny. Our server, Kaitlyn was extrodinary and tended to our every request with a smile/courtesy. The food was excellent and was at our table in a smooyh fashion---- not to quick or slow, just right. We will be back
Everything was great as usual; quality and satisfying quantity. A bit of a distraction with a loud, very young child, but the hour was late. Server and service flowed nicely.
The steaks just were not that good. At $79, it should have been superb, but it was gristly and poorly cooked. The waitress didn't know the wine list and wasn't particularly helpful. It was an extremely expensive dinner for less than average quality.
Very disappointed in our dinners. The cioppino was not to my husband's liking. An odd recipe and very little in the way of seafood. My steak was so tiny (and expensive) I cut in into tiny pieces just to make it last. The broccoli side dish was a big bowl of steamed broccoli with nothing added, so very bland. The whole meal was extremely expensive and we left very disappointed. Will probably not return. This was not our first time there, but it was the first time we weren't happy with our dinner. We are very sad that the Bistro West closed as it was a restaurant where you could get a great dinner or lunch and not spend an arm and a leg to do so.
Food was great. I love grass-fed beef and, while I would have preferred more choices, the Australian filet mignon was perfect.
West Steak and Seafood is not cheap, but we feel we got our money's worth. The lamb and steak were cooked to perfection, the wine list is extensive, and the whiskey and creme brûlée after dinner were outstanding. It's not an everyday sort of place, but we look forward to returning.
Excellent service and great food; however, not recommended for an intimate dinner. The noise level was that of a college bar even though my wife and I had a later reservation. Main course, compliments, and dessert were all superb -- but very overpriced.
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.
Amazing experience, amazing food, overall such a great experience
Always a great place to dine for a special occasion. Service is exceptional, and the staff works well as a team - so there are no seams in the service. The Food is tops, and prepared well. Chef's team is on target !!
Celebrated valentine dinner at west for the second time. The food is always awesome. It is a busy night but I believe most of it is reservations so it’s not too bad. We were seated in the bar..I understand they need the whole restaurant. But seated at a small table for two which I expressed to the hostess wasn’t going to be ok as my husband was in an arm sling from a recent surgery and it is quite cumbersome. She sat us there anyway and soon after switched to a larger table. All in all dinner was great. We had expressed to waitress that we did not want our dinner coming right after the appetizer and it did. A restaurant like this should know better . My husband was upset as upon paying the bill they always give the women a long stemmed rose. Well that didn’t happen either. We will probably return as the food is really good and up in north county there is not a lot to choose from.
Awesome food and dinner service
Eaten here many times. Never disappointed. A true dining experience with some of the best food and service you will ever enjoy.
Great food, service. Expensive. Need larger selection of wines in 60-100 range. We found value, but not many choices considering that food alone for two runs 150 with soup/salad entree.
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.
One of the best steak houses I’ve been to. Amazing food and great service.
It was our first time there. Portions are sizeable. Unfortunately, our main entrees were not very hot when served. Also the cowboy rib eye lacked any real flavor (lack of seasoning). Disappointing for a very nice cut of meat.
I took my wife there for her birthday. It was our first time there and we could not have been happier.... well we were seated by the kitchen which was less than optimal, but the service and good were so wonderful we quickly forgot about our seating.
Top notch establishment. We had lobster. Perfectly cooked, delicious. Sides were also excellent. Service was quick, professional, friendly. Good wine list, excellent cocktails.
The food was excellent and the service was great very happy we went there
Responsive and knowledgeable staff. Great appetizer (spring rolls), wonderful steak. Cooked perfect & very flavorable. Will definitely return 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!
Anniversary dinner and it was amazing. The meat is prepared perfectly and the best part of it all was our server.
Lobster bisque was to die for! The best we have ever had and we frequent New England. The steak was deliciously seasoned even without any sauce. The ciopinno was full of large pieces of seafood!
We are never disappointed with the food here!
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!
