We were seated in the Cedar Room which was small and nice and quiet. The warm cornbread is always delicious and is a good beginning. My quinoa and farro salad with yogurt is healthy and surprisingly tasty, and my friend's cheeseburger and fries were wonderful. We will eat here again as soon as we return to the theatre again, which is next week.

Always consistently good. I like almost everything I have ordered (the flatbreads aren't great. Dough tastes like crackers. Otherwise everything is delicious.

I didn’t think the hostess was very friendly when we arrived. Server was nice and friendly however, he neglected to come to the table for 20 mins after we ate and then he brought the check. Never asked us if we wanted dessert or coffee which we ordered both . Wasn’t impressed and it was a client lunch.

I've been there many times, often taking guests there. I usually have the French dip sandwich,
in honor of my late father, who loved the one at Philippe's downtown. Tomato soup is good too.
I've liked Mary's chicken.

My wife and I were in LA for an evening on the way to vacation in Hawaii. We invited my neice and her fiancé to join us at my daughter’s favorite restaurant — Westside Tavern. The restaurant did not disappoint. The Chef, who remembered my
daughter from previous visits, greeted us and recommended wonderful choices. After a great meal, he helped select a couple excellent desserts, includiing the beignets pictured, for the table to share. Friendly atmosphere with inventive, tasty dishes! We also enjoyed some great cocktails and wine. We will be back!

A menu change of our favorite Salmon salad from a plentiful chopped salad w/a filet of Salmon to a skimpy "Asian" greens salad w/a filet of Salmon was extremely disappointing. And this just happened in the last 2 weeks. I'm also appalled when restaurants don't serve bread or rolls as a matter of course. Yes, the corn bread is delicious - but it adds to the bill & this is not budget-minded lunch dining.

We come here on a regular basis after a movie, for some reason this recent expeience was very disappointing. Made a reservation with a special request for a booth, when we got to the restaurant we were advised a booth was not available in spite numerous ones were not being used, we were told they were for larger parties but ultimately were filled with parties of our size. All our orders came out at the same time including appetizers with main course. It truly was not their normal style.

Clearly a change has taken place - for the worse - at this restaurant that we frequent often. We have seen a downward spiral and a change in vibe on our last three visits. The staff seems all new, and the hostesses are totally robotic and unfriendly. On our last visit, the food took long to arrive and was cold. But the food quality seemed very much up to par...so we are not giving up...yet.

Good food . But annoying that they wouldn’t seat us until all party’s came. They were parking the car and we all drove separate and it was a busy Friday night . May take that into consideration when booking on a weekend . We spent a lot so they should have been more accommodating.

This restaurant is very convenient for dining after a movie. Drinks are good and there’s a variety of food from which to choose. Generally the service is congenial and efficient, although tonight we had a waiter who was difficult to understand, did not get what we asked for and hurried us with the bill. Perhaps more training required? I appreciate that they now take reservation.

This is a good neighborhood place esp for before and after the LANDMARK. The problem is that there are very few vegetarian options except for good flatbread that is loaded with cheese. Their are NO salads on the menu without meat or fish and I was charged $7 for overdressed lettuce since there was no salad option. They could really expand their vegetable options to appeal to the neighborhood where they are.

A great bet after the movies...pleasant atmosphere without spending a fortune. Only one glass of wine was ordered for our party of four. One individual had the trout, one a sandwich, one turkey burger and one veggie burger (my wife seemed to enjoy it....I thought it was very mushy). Everything was good and delivered as ordered. Delighted they are now taking reservations as we rarely visited the restaurant, but now seem to be going twice a month once we are assured we are not going to have to wait 20 minutes for the table. They seem to honor the system by seating you exactly as reserved.

We come here often. Consistently delicious, clean food which is both simple and modern. This visit our server Lucy G was great, so warm and professional, she recommended the whole Thai Snapper which I loved. The vibe is always good from the moment you step into the door and it doesn’t hurt that the prices are reasonable for the quality of the food and the added comfort of the space.

We frequent this restaurant, maybe not weekly, but definitley more than monthly. This visit was different in that we were seated in a back room; I think they call it the Cedar Room. It was nice back there, semi-private and quiet. The downside was that the service was very slow. I would only recommend that room if you are in no kind of rush. Other than that, I'm sure we'll visit the Westside Tavern again, but probably not the Cedar Room.

Good place if you can walk to it. Not many vegetarian options. The flatbreads are big and tasty but loaded with cheese. Still the noise level was acceptable and sitting in the booth was cozy.

"Upscale" dining that is reasonably priced and not too "upscale" (fussy). Seasonal options mean that there are always adventurous specials on the menu along with reliable comfort dishes like the grilled cheese sandwich. Food is ample but never heavy, and always delicious. We also appreciate that they take special requests and will accommodate dietary needs. A great place.
