Following a screening, I had delicious vegetable chili, hummus and pita, topped with a glass of wine. Perfect food and ambience to discuss the movie.

The chicken mousse is a classic. The barbecue chicken flatbread is fabulous. I have only one complaint: The temperature could be raised a couple of degrees.

I love the place. Whether for a good meal before a film or a low key business meeting, this is an ideal spot. Delicious food and really terrific service, this is one of the most solid restaurants on the westside and perfect for meeting friends half way between the beach and Hollywood...

The Westside Tavern is a convenient dining spot before or after a movie, and I've always enjoyed my meals here. My most recent dinner, however, was so poor, I will likely not come back. The corn soup tasted like it was out of a can; the corn bread was dry and tasted like it was out of a box; and the vegetables (a plate of Brussels sprouts and a plate of cauliflower) were both greasy and tasting of old oil.

With a friend, ate a prix fixe set of dishes - delicious corn soup, halibut and peach trifle. However, was disappointed that the two of us weren't allowed to order separately - inflexible and not customer-centered. Also, seated in back room - quieter but unattractive room. Lucky the food was good.

I had the roasted lamb dip. It is very tasty but it was a little salty this time. The side ceasar salad (I chose this side) was generous and perfectly dressed. We asked about specials before ordering and the waiter got a little snotty about the single paper flyer on the table, which was not the specials after all.

The Westside Tavern has become my go to place. The food is always great, and the service very attentive. You really feel like you can relax and hear the people you are with. I will continue to eat there frequently.

I want to like this place, but it just feels like it's on the verge of going out of business. Service is great, and the decor is nice, but with so many specials on the menu it feels like a fire sale.

Simply said, a gem. The food is outstanding, from the crispy fried chicken to the delectable pate to all the pastas, you can't go wrong.

Only problem we had was that we were a few minutes early and they would not seat us until after the time of our reservation.
It was a little difficult to time our reservation as we were seeing a movie adjacent to the restaurant .

Very convenient for dining before the movie. The restaurant was quite full on an early Saturday evening but they found a very nice, relatively quiet corner for us. Food was very good but we had to send the french fries back because they were cold.

We’ve been to Westside Tavern many times and have always enjoyed our meal. This evening the we found the food not up to par. I had the turkey burger which was good but the sweet potatoes fries were average, they just didn’t have much flavor and were not nice and soft inside. My husband had the Asian Chicken and it tasted as if the lettuce was too wet before they tossed in the dressing, again no pizzazz. Decided to skip dessert, we’ll try another time. Our waiter although nice seemed to do the minimal and seemed to not want to be there, or maybe not take care of our table.
All in all a disappointing evening other than being with our friends.

Food is decent but service is consistently minimal. Most of the servers seem disinterested in 'serving' and apparently would prefer to be elsewhere. That has been a consistent problem since I have eaten many times over the years following a film at the Landmark. Can't they hire people interested in doing their job well?

We have eaten here many times. It isn’t the restaurant we would always choose when coming to the Landmark Theater but is very convenient, just downstairs from the theaters. The drinks are well made and generous. The menu is offers the same food much of the time but does have a daily special menu daily, only for the entire table. The service is excellent and a big plus was added now that reservations are accepted

We were a party of 7 plus a baby. I chose Westside Tavern because one person is vegan and another is vegetarian. Also, a kid who is generally a good eater. It's a great place to accommodate a large group, with a menu that will satisfy all diets. A great staple on the Westside!

Always excellent food. A few minor issues: no one ever comes around for coffee or water refills. Ever. No salt and pepper on the table. Have to try and flag someone down, which is often diificult because yhe place is so big. Finally, why have a beautiful market menu that only the whole table can order? Big disappointment.
