This restaurant is located in a mall near countless movie theaters.
It seems to be filled with customers who frequent the theaters.

We were seated immediately and our server approached quickly.
We placed our beverage orders and they arrived in a timely manner.
We ordered our meal and there was not a long wait for that either.

The food was delicious and good sized portions were served.
It was a comfortable meal.

Seems like they are trying to be like Hillstones but they aren’t even close. Won’t go back.

We frequent this establishment as do many others who also visit the Landmark Theatre. They take reservations now, but for anyone who hasn't been been there before, you should know that on a busy evening, even with a reservation, you may wait 10 or 15 minutes for your table. The food is good, and is the main reason we continue to go there, in addition to the convenience to the theatre. The only other caution I would put out there is the tab can be a bit high. All that said, we would recommend the Westside Tavern, and will continue to dine there.

I generally eat here pre-movie but would come for pleasant dining experience as well. Nice bar, VERY good drinks and wine list. Food is quite excellent, everything from salads and burgers to excellent pasta and fresh fish. Noise level quite high during peak time periods.

The food was outstanding and the portions were quite adequate. However, we were disappointed by the Liquor pour. The portion was minuscule compared to the price they charge. I asked the waiter why this was the case and he said that the bar manager demanded a specific pour and that’s what we were stuck with. I understand cost control, however when you’re paying $15-$17 for either a glass of wine or a cocktail you expect a decent size portion that other establishments offer. It s for that reason we were turned off and probably will not return.

Enjoyed the salmon burger and pumpkin soup. Nice meal and environment to catch up with a friend. Nice to have this restaurant adjacent to the theatres with convenient parking.

At first tried to give us an overly large table but we persisted until we got an appropriately sized booth and were very happy. Everything excellent.

The miso cod was really the best cod I have tasted in a long time. This cod melted in your mouth and the skin was crisp and tasty with the miso. The cod came with Black rice that was also a great ride along with the cod.
I, of course, had the Kentucky Ice Tea - bourbon and whatever else in it to make it my favorite drink at the Tavern.

Food, service, ambiance all great, however seating with reservations is a mess. It’s always like that. The time you bake the res for means nothing. If they are always “slammed” at certain times—as they don’t hesitate to tell you— they should limit the reservations they make at those times. We wound up grabbing a high top at the bar even though my friend has a bad back and the stools do not have backs.

Ordered the special pasta with meat sauce and to me it was a small portion based on the price. Also should publish the daily specials with prices.

Always an excellent meal with superbly cheerful service and a noise level that allows even those with hearing aids to have a conversation. I bring friends from every generation to the Westside Tavern and am never disappointed.

Convenient location from the Landmark theaters. Food is mediocre. The main room is bustling and noisy, but there’s a room in back that is smaller and quieter.

We were in for a quick bite before a movie. Shared an appetizer and each had a drink and grilled cheese.
Pretty pricey for a short and not so memorable dinner but we sat at the bar and the bartender was on top of everything! Great service, menu suggestion for something quick and quick with the bill too! Better experience when we have an hour to enjoy a sit down dinner! But they do make a nice grilled cheese!

The waitress was very pleasant, helpful, and attentive. The turkey burger was bland with an inappropriate whole wheat bun. The tomato soup was acetic. I've had better food here, so stay away from these two items.

Came here with some friends after watching the Irishman, and it was packed! We asked to speak to someone about wines and that’s where Christopher came by and made some great recommendations. I really appreciate his honesty, as we weren’t looking to spend top dollar. He wasn’t pushy as many wine stewards are, he worked well within our budget. Will be back.

We like this place as a pre-movie option. Our server last night wasn’t one of your best. And seriously....if you’re offering a “side salad” as an option to fries with a sandwich, it really ought to be something more than a “bowl of lettuce,” which is what I got last night.
