An exceptional Valentine’s Day experience start to finish. Would definitely return for any special occasion.

That Valentine’s prefixed menu was amazing! I only wish I had enough room to finish the strawberry shortcake tiramisu. It was by far one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. My filet was perfect. The burrata spinach salad was pure heaven and the mushroom and chèvre tartine was perfect. Our server was super friendly and did an awesome job. I love the view there too. It’s such a charming restaurant which has become our favorite date night spot.

The West End Bar and Pub never disappoints. It is has the warmth of a neighborhood gem and the allure of a newly discovered gourmet delight. A young professional friendly staff, good food, generous glasses of wine, and great ambience. Treat yourself whether in the neighborhood or willing like me to go for a drive to Purcellville.

We’ve been to West End many times. This particular visit was disappointing. The server was just OK. He couldn’t explain what the special was for the evening (which he kept referring to as afternoon). He said “the chef always does something different”. In addition, all entrees were cold upon delivery to the table. Lastly, a very loud large group was seated with us upstairs which sealed the deal on this not being a great experience. I will chalk it up to an off night at West End and will return to try it again.

Food was good. It took a long time to receive my drink, which I had to ask where it was and then when I did receive it I had to send it back as it was not made correctly.

Overall experience was great (food, service, value). Only somewhat negative is that we were seated upstairs, which is definitely not the same vibe nor nearly as nice as the main level dining area - visited the pub on the lower level after dinner - great drinks and energetic - we are looking forward to our next visit (will definitely be requesting main level dining)

Fantastic meal. Highly recommend. Service was excellent. We went for New Year’s Eve and I was a bit nervous it being a holiday evening. The restaurant did not disappoint. I look forward to returning.

Lovely interior. Tables spaced out nicely. Could easily carry on a conversation. Service was timely and pleasant. The downsides: there were no chicken entrees available on the menu other than a chicken sandwich or adding grilled chicken to a salad. The green beans and duck fries were the best part of the meal. My husband ordered the strip steak which consisted of large portions of fat and was overcooked. I ordered the sirloin which was undercooked. We just ended up swapping rather than waiting for refiring or replacing. Both steaks were oddly dry-tasting, though ... kind of sawdusty. All-in-all, we didn’t leave with a feeling that our dinners were worth the price.

As always, the food and service, at West End, was top notch. Started with the West End salad. I recommend this salad to all. The greens, salad dressing, etc. are great. But, their deviled eggs (included with the salad) are the best. Main course was the halibut, served over kale and creamed spinach; also excellent. Topped everything off with very good coffee, and their always super chocolate sundae. This restaurant, on the western end of Purcellville is a must for all who enjoy fine dining.

Another fabulous evening on the patio at West End. With the heater, it was a perfect place to watch the fall sunset. Delicious food (burger and duck fries for me and scallops for my friend). Good wine recommendations and attentive but not intrusive service.

Overall great service. The food was not up to its usual high standards this time. The roasted pepper goat cheese dip was over soaked in a tomato soup (tasted like Campbell's) that was just too much. The chicken pasta primavera was rather bland (though in all fairness, we did order it without mushrooms).
We will be back and hope it was just an off night for food prep.
We greatly enjoyed the outside with the live guitar player/singer. Alas, not too many such nights left this season.

The food is great, the service exceptional and the price is very fair. One note of caution, if you plan to sit inside, I advise you to sit away from the door leading to the patio.

So happy I found this place while being out in Purcellville for the day. My husband and I got to enjoy the nice weather by sitting on their front porch with a glass of wine before dinner. For dinner, we started with the crab rangoon which was great and even came with fresh lump crab meat on the side. My husband loved his steak and I absolutely loved my dish which was the special of the night. Roasted Char fish with basmati risotto and roasted squash. Everything was seasoned perfectly which is hard to come by these days with so many restaurants pouring salt on their dishes. Had such a great time and can’t wait to return to try some dessert!

Food is pretty good, not quite fine dining but very good for the area. Chef a bit heavy handed with the salt, would ask for less next time. Calamari and Steak were excellent, crab cakes had too much breadcrumb mixed in. Wine list is very good and prices are reasonable. Service as good as anywhere.

We have been here a handful of times and this is the first time I have had poor service. We waited about 15 minutes after we were seated then someone in our party got up and asked if someone was going to take our drink orders. Someone did finally come and they did apologize and gave us a free round. However, it wasn't busy so no real excuse. We all had the scallops and they came out luke warm, just wasn't a great evening for the restaurant in our opinion. They have been great in the past, hope this isn't their new normal.

West End Wine Bar was a wonderful surprise!! Delicious food, lovely atmosphere in the dining room, and friendly and efficient service. We are from Maryland, so we have a pretty high bar for crab cakes... WEWB’s crab cakes are packed full of back-fin meat and taste great. There’s no other way to put it!! We had the smoked burrata caprese salad - the tomato’s were so flavorful. Of course, we couldn’t leave without dessert, lavender and honey creme brûlée - oh so decadent! We visit LoCo a lot - we will definitely return to WEWB.
