We love Westside Tavern, but were very disappointed this time. I've downgraded them because they eliminated Entrees from the Menu. I love Mary's Chicken they way they've prepared it, but it's no longer there. Only 3 Fish dishes and 1 Steak dish... We were quit surprised. Otherwise it's a great place to meet people and have a good meal, if you want a salad or hamburger. Please bring back the entrees.
Convenient to the Landmark Theaters, good food and service.
Thank you Westside Tavern for your consistency in flavorful food. Our group shared appetizers and each ordered an entree. There was no need for any dish to be boxed...all too tasty. Save room for the warm sticky toffee cake!
I like the restaurant and would love to make a reservation in the evening which you do not accept. I am a neighbor and find your restaurant convenient and the choice of menu options are great. The prices are little high but the food is worth it.
Always a great place to get anything from a burger and salad to a more upscale gourmet meal.
This has to be one of my most solid go-to's on the Westside. Don't let the empty mall which Google is about to redo and move into for their new offices keep you away. This place has always and continues to be a wonderful restaurant!
I've never eaten something here that I did not enjoy. Service is always great as well.
Love Westside Tavern...one of my favorite go to restaurants! Lucy, our server, was fantastic. We were lucky because we hit fried chicken night (every other weekend). It is the best fried chicken that I’ve ever had!!!! Everything they serve is fantastic!!!!
As always, 5 stars across the board!
Always have a great food experience here. The problem is service. They are understaffed for bus service. No one ever asks if we want coffee or water refills. Ever. And we are there a few times a month. I saw one busboy. Wait persons are too busy to think about it. Everyone in our party noticed. It's a problem.
The tavern is consistently delicious. The fried chicken (special) and the triple grill cheese are amazing.
It’s always good! The cheeseburger is THE BEST in town.
Service was not very attentive, but food was good.
Told we would be in the quieter back room but they placed a loud large party next to us. My food was very good (veggie chi) but my friend’s crab cakes were filled with pieces of crab shell
Just love this family friendly place. The food is consistently good. The service is always professional.
We love the fried shrimp tacos!! So delicious!!!!
We were seated immediately upon arrival. The waitress was excellent, attentive and polite without being overbearing. The overall ambient volume was moderate. Conversation at our table was easy. No loud voices needed. That's rare in today's restaurants. The food was very good. We'll be back.
Server could not remember our order and forgot to bring drinks. Club sandwich had undercooked bacon and minestrone soup has some raw vegetables. Seated in an area near kitchen with lots of traffic from servers so hard to have a conversation.
When I made the reservation I mentioned we had two birthdays. The person that seated us also mentioned the two birthdays. I was very disappointed that we did not get anything festive not even a desert. For a party of 7 with two birthdays I would have expected something festive, especially since it was mentioned.
Best cheeseburger ANYWHERE!
only problem is that the chef will not do substitutions. frustrating.
Food is consistently delicious. Great service too.
Great place to eat, especially before or after a movie.
Reservations are a must. It is very popular.
Good food, reservations honored on time, good , knowledgeable service
FABULOUS FOOD!! (Shhh...the hamburger is the best kept secret in LA.)
It seemed tonight as though there was a new chef, as both my boyfriend’s and my meals were not as good as usual, nor was the appetizer
I’m hoping this isn’t the case when we go next time
We were both disappointed, as this is a ‘usual’ spot for us....
Carlos makes the best hot chocolate’s and shoutout to everyone in the kitchen :) the flatbread are great and to the awesome waiter Eric was the best . He always came to check up on us if we needed something and told us what he recommends
Great job Westside Tavern !
We eat there quite a bit and most of the time really like the but this time we had the fish and chips, there was only three small pieces and the batter was soggy and not very krispy. The waiter also did not tell the price.
Our waitress was very nice and I appreciated her smiles. Food was good and everyone got exactly what they ordered. No mistakes no problems
Best cheeseburger EVER!
I have been here many times for a business lunch and every one enjoys it. It is consistently great.
Although we made a reservation, we were late due to the unexpected "question/answer" time after our movie ended. We had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated at The Tavern.
Order a burger medium well but it came medium rare. No time to have it cooked more, had a movie to get to.
Always a welcome and wonderful place for a dinner before or after a movie.
We ate there the night before last before a movie and can't say enough about how consistently wonderful this place is!
Eduardo, our server was the epitome of graciousness. Our food was divine although I do miss Mary's Chicken being on the menu. The Miso Salmon was fabulous, though and well executed. My husband had the Albondigas Soup which was really very good.
The ONLY thing not on point is the really bad 80's top 40 musaaac blaring. Totally doesn't fit the vibe, way off. I realized they play the same "music" channel at the lounge directly across from the cinema itself. I would highly recommend a classy jazz or lounge vibe instead. Fits the clientele better, including us!
Other than that minor thing... well done indeed!
Today was not as great; waiter Philip seemed busy; he’s sweet and nice but we had to ask for coffee refills and dessert menu. I thought prices were higher than I remembered. Fries were a little cold and thought the Caesar dressing was just too fishy.
I have eaten at the Westside Tavern many times and in the past have been quite pleased. This last time my experience was simply awful. I had reservations yet was told by the very unfriendly receptionist that we had to wait. We were finally seated right by the very noisy bar and my guest and I had a very difficult time hearing each other. My biggest complaint, however, was the waiter. He was totally incompetent. It took forever for him to come over and take our drink order. When the drinks finally did arrive and he was ready to take our orders I had to ask him about the specials. He didn't freely offer this information. We waited forever for the food to come and when we needed drink refills or anything else our waiter was nowhere to be seen. We had to flag down the busboy or other waiters in the area for service. This meal was a special birthday lunch and since our waiter basically ignored us and the food took so long in coming, we didn't have time for dessert (I requested a candle, etc.) as we were going to a movie. I was very disappointed. Finally, I asked our waiter for a box to take my remaining food home in and he literally threw it at me. My guest was shocked as was I. To sum up, let's just say it was extremely embarrassing for me.
Love love love!!! Green beans & Mac N Cheese OMG!!!!!!
Great menu, they have something for everyone and the food is great. Reasonably priced for the area and portion sizes
Food is always wonderful. Especially recommend the grilled cheese and tomato soup. Great ambiance, not too loud. Beautiful bar. Usually the service is great, but this time my friend and I both thought the waiter was kind of weird. He just stood next to the table, didn’t introduce himself—to the point where we were both wondering at first if he was the waiter or just some guy who had wandered over. He was very lackadaisical about taking the order and never checked on us. The other waiters I’ve had there have always been good though. The menu is a bit pricey.
