    Food was excellent! Loud but fun vibe. Only reason I gave it 4 stars was parking was limited and we had to park in the back with little lighting and uneven lot.

    Loved the food and the vibe, the bar scene is super cute! The parking is a nightmare though. The restaurant doesn’t have rights to park in the plaza so they have valet but if you want to park yourself, good luck. The drinks are also EXPENSIVE, $15+ but they have a great happy hour so when we come back, we plan to go during happy hour. The food is reasonably priced though and very delicious!

    Alvin did a wonderful job helping me throw my husband a surprise birthday dinner! I was a bit nervous since I had never been there before but they really knocked it out of the park! The service was excellent. The music was perfect. Last but not least the food was delicious!! We can’t wait to come back again!!

    Nice place. Not enough parking. Easier to use valet. Difficult to make left into parking lot, had to go down to second entrance. This has always been an issue with this location. Mixed crowd. Lively. Noise level high, no sound proofing. Paris was our waitperson. Very good service.

    Food is decent, if not spectacular, and I found the drink pricing to be a bit ambitious frankly.

    For a crowded Saturday nite, the music was unnecessarily loud and raised the decibel level considerably among those in the dining areas. Also, a group of young men stood three deep at one location at the bar, one was vaping, the group was obstructing the aisle between our table and the bar. That continued for the duration of our stay. If Saturday nite is a crowded bar night, either insist on a table farthest away, or avoid booking Sat nite. I can see tolerating some grouping at the bar if they’re waiting for a table to be vacated and be seated. That wasn’t the case. Poor floor and bar management.

    The music was playing was way too loud. We could not even hear ourselves talk and have a conversation. It was 7 pm so I don’t think having loud music is necessary.

    First time at West End and everyone enjoyed the experience. Food was good. Menu was creative. Nice ambience. Two minor opportunities would be noise level. It was very loud. And service. It was good, but we had to literally get up and grab the waitress to come over to help us with something after waiting an exceptionally long time. I think she just got distracted because she was attentive otherwise. Will definitely go back.

    We always enjoy this place. It’s around the corner pretty much from our house. The menu is not huge but every meal we have gotten has been very tasty. This most recent visit they had a cornbread chorizo cilantro app that was outstanding. And I know I always start my evening there with the French Kiss cocktail 🍸. Relaxed atmosphere. A great place to go.

    Dining and drinks with friends. Great ambiance. Great food, drinks and great service. Appreciate having someplace nearby that stays open past 9pm. We will definitely put this place in our regular rotation. An extra bonus: the music playing was right up our alley. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

    Good food.... not an extensive menu so I would recommend reviewing the menu online before you go. Paris was our waitress and she was very attentive and we had good service… However this place is extremely loud and it was very difficult to hear conversation even just around our own table
