Our food was excellent and we appreciated the variety of menu options. Our server was not attentive and needed to be reminded to bring drink menus and water a number of times. Had it not been for the waiter, the restaurant would have been rated with 4 or 5 stars.

West End Wine Bar was a wonderful find for my husband and I. We just recently moved to Round Hill and been trying out new date night spots. This is definitely our favorite so far. Can't wait to bring friends out for an evening of good food and wine on the patio. We had a great time, the food was wonderful and our server, Nick, added to our enjoyment. We will definitely be repeat diners.

We were there with friends for our anniversary-our server thought it was our birthday-but her forgetfulness was just the first of many missed opportunities.
We came from the bar but only 3 of our 4 had drinks. We weren’t approached for at least 5 minutes-when our server asked “have your heard the specials?”-how could we have heard anything as no one but the busboy had approached our table.
Appetizer was ordered and delivered before we were offered drinks-we ordered wine —and it took another 10 minutes to arrive. When we had our dishes cleared, the busboy asked my guest if he would like to “keep your fork and knife”. We had ordered salads-and clearly needed additional silverware. Wine finally arrived and our server opened and the “re-corked” the bottle. I’ve never seen anything. like it. When our salads arrived, the derliverer “auctioned” off our salads interrupting our conversation.
Salad plates were cleared along with knives and forks and dinner delivered to our table with no complete silverware for any of us. No steak knife. And when our server walked by to check on us-she began to walk away from our clearly empty glasses. “May we have some more wine” I asked. She actually acted confused. Then poured wine from our bottle on the table.
We were offered dessert-no coffee, drinks or cordials-which we likely would have had if offered. Dessert arrived - and a plate with 4 spoons were left on the table for us to grab ourselves.
This disappointing and tactless service was only topped off by the baseball hat wearing kitchen staff wandering into the dining room to haplessly interact with staff members. As if they needed any more distractions than the dining room filled with guests - hopefully having a better experience than ours.
I’ve reviewed your establishment in glowing terms in the past, but if anyone believes that sweet yellow sauce and blood red risotto are a good match with over - garlic’ed pesto are a good match then they are also beyond lost.

Quality food and a nice setting. The wine pours were on the light side, maybe 4 ounces at best but it may have been someone new at the bar. We have been several times and the food and service is always spot on.

The banana pudding was burned. The portion of fries was very little. The table next to us was loud that we had no choice to leave because we couldn’t hear each other. The server was nice but checked on us too much. Making us feel like we had to rush to eat and leave.

Food was amazing. The honey garlic wings and spring rolls were delicious to start then the 8hr braised short rib over udon noodles and the fettuccini and shrimp were unbelievably good for mains. Didn’t have room for dessert! Service was also attentive, sociable and knowledgeable of the entire menu. Wonderful experience and we will be attending many times in the future.

I went to West End for lunch with a friend. We shared a salad special so we could try more food items. The salad was yummy! We also ordered their basket of breads that came with three selections and honey and a jam topping...very delicious. We both ordered their crab cake, which I would definitely order again. The French fries that came with it were very addictive, so I ate them ALL. All in all, we both loved it!

Had this on my radar for some time - and it was well worth the drive. The food was awesome and the staff was very attentive. The only negative would be that they said they were kid friendly but did not have the usual entertainment items such as place mats or crayons to keep them busy. They had interesting history but was not on the menu or print out - I only knew about it from the website which I pulled up for the children to read. OBTW - there is an awesome park right up the road to visit - excellent playground that was much enjoyed. Will definitely go again. Be sure to try out the French Toast..................

This is our second visit to West End, and like the first, the food, service and surroundings were great. You can come dressed up, but most people were in nice/dark jeans and nice tops/sweaters. The restaurant really left an impression on our friends who were still talking about the meal the next day!

I love the feel of this place - this was my second time here for Sunday brunch. The food is delicious, I had the Farmhouse Croissant and was very pleased by the taste although difficult to eat. The service was hit or miss. It appeared we didn't have a designated server so the manager or owner took charge. I would return for the food and the atmosphere but the service is something which could be improved, especially at this price point.

We took our visiting son to dinner here. He'd specifically requested the restaurant from a previous visit. We all three walked out of the restaurant feeling that the chef and staff outdid themselves. The food was just outstanding. My wife and I had skirt steak, prepared to perfection, with "duck fries" and our son had the shepherd's pie for the St. Patrick's Day dinner.

I couldn't express our satisfaction adequately with words other than to say it was a meal that will take a long time before it disappears from my memory.

My husband and I were from out of the area and we ordered Wagu Beef steaks...THIS WAS NOT REAL WAGU BEEF. Let me tell you: I've had Wagu before and this was not it. They were out of the fish special by 7pm and my husband had to choose something he did not really want.

The manager went to chat with all other tables except us, the food was luke-warm, really small portions and very odd ambiance. Clearly regulars there are treated with more respect than all customers.

I liked the mixed drinks and the salad but that was about it. The service was so-so. I've already recommended the B&B I stayed in to friends and specifically told them NOT to come to this restaurant.

What a gem this place is. As usual we stumble into places others have known about forever but we were not disappointed.We were looking for someplace new and wow!

Our reservation was at 5:30 and this was the PERFECT time to go,,,, quiet and amazing attention by the staff!

We got the Crab Falafel and Calamari/shrimp/lobster appetizers! Phenomenal.

I got a Sparkling Sangria w/ blood orange and grapefruit - refreshing and yummy!! I chose the dinner special of Salmon in a smoked mushroom dashi incredible. Hubby got the tilefish also incredible.

For desert I went with my standby creme brulee and hubby got the Apple Hand Pie.

We were so stuffed!!! But we will be back for sure especially when the weather warms up and we are out on the motorcycle. We definitely want to check out the patio area!!!
