    Prompt and courteous service, and the food was very nice, and I ordered the steak, which for a place that is not a steakhouse was very well cooked. Ambiance and the environment was great.

    Food and service never disappoints. There was no valet service, disappointingly, and as you know parking is a nightmare. The noise level is loud because the music is set for a nightclub and not a restaurant, so everyone has to shout to be heard, we couldn’t clearly make out what our server was saying or explaining, not her fault at all, but there has to be a level of comfort both for guests and staff. This would deter me from going again.

    Absolutely love coming coming here. Ken, my server, is my man! I had him probably 3 times now as my waiter. He is always so cool and friendly. I come for happy hour all the time and he never makes me feel inferior for coming only for happy hour. I love their burger, and my SO loves the mussels and fries. It's not the cheapest place, but it is unbeatable in taste and great service. I wish I can come more often, but it is getting pricey to eat out in general. 18% tip is the standard now. I want to give Ken more tip to tell him that he is doing a great job, but ordering 2 drinks, 1 appy, 2 entries is like $100, every percent is a dollar.

    Great place for amazing food. The ambience is perfect for a date or group get together. Mine and my friends' usual go to spot. Unfortunately, we've all noticed that the service has gone down hill! The servers used to be extremely friendly and nice. These days, they seem to have an attitude. Not sure what's happened. Go for the food and ambience. Be prepared for unfriendly service.

    My daughter and I shared the Dine Out Lamb and Ribeye meals. Enjoyed the ribeye and mashed potatoes but the lamb shank had a spice that wasnt as appealing. Prawn appetizer only had 3 prawns. Too bad there wasnt an alternative to the dessert choices that were gluten free. Were given ice cream as a 65th birthday dessert alternative : ( For the price we would have expected something more outstanding Nice to come on a Tuesday when the ambience was quiet.

    It was our first time dining at West Oak. We took part in Dine Out Vancouver. Great food! We had the garden salad, Maui ribs, risotto, salmon, key Lime pie and cookie dessert. Everything was tasty and not overly filling. A few minutes after we were sat down, we were asked if it was OK to move us to another table to accommodate a larger party. We were more than willing. We were surprised with a couple of drinks. That was kind of them. Our server, Jason was so efficient and friendly! He provided awesome service, and he was super busy with his section. You would not have known because he was so calm and kind the entire time. As soon as we would finish a dish he would immediately be at our table cleaning it off and refilling our drinks or replacing cutlery. We had a pleasurable experience! Thank you :)

    The food was amazing and so tasty. We got the tomahawk platter and it was outstanding. Of course we ended the night with their famous fresh baked cookies. West Oak is one of my favourite restaurants. Thank you to the chefs as well, they were so friendly from behind the counter. Great job you guys! :)

    The food, for the most part, was average, which did not match the cost. For example, the kale that accompanied both types of risotto was terrible. It was like putting warm, wet paper in your mouth. Zero flavor and soggy. The gnocchi that came with the catch of the day was not enjoyable. The gnocchi was tough, and the sauce could not be identified- but it was not nice and indeed not a good pairing with fish!

    We were seated quickly. The drinks came fast and the main course soon after. Chicken dish was good and market price ling cod was delicious. However, dishes tasted similar to what you would get at similar priced restaurants like Earls so Value-wise was okay.

    One of my go-to places for happy hour. Food and drinks are consistent and service is great! Opt for the outside area - it’s beautiful when the weather is good and warm and cozy (heated) in the colder months. I have a vegan friend who joins me for happy hour from time to time and they always accommodate her requirements/request as well!

    The food here is consistently very good! Sablefish is consistently excellent, for example, and cocktails are on point. They don’t have highly experienced wait staff, but they do a good enough job for Yaletown standards. The ambiance would be really nice in the restaurant if it wasn’t for the lounge, which can sometimes make the whole restaurant feel like a sports bar. They should decide if they want to be a high-quality restaurant experience or keep the big screen TVs.
