LOVED this jewel !! It was the best of everything and more!
Beautiful, small restaurant. It wasn't crowded when we went so it felt spacious and it was quiet. Food wasn't exceptional but it was good. Dessert is pretty untraditional. The tiramisu is a couple macarons, a chocolate roll and cream. Good, but not if your looking for traditional tiramisu. Same with the cheesecake.
Awesome meal. Service was impeccable. Can’t wait to return!
Very nice environment for dining
Enjoyed the Westgate Room - nice ambiance and good service. Regret that the crab cakes were a disappointment - bit soggy.
I dont know if the service was bad due to Restaurant week, but it took 30 mins for our server to realize that we hadn't even had our first course yet. The main entrees were served cold. 2 dishes were returned. Other patrons complained as well as their dishes were forgotten for 1 hour.
One of our best dining experiences downtown.
Atmosphere is formal and elegant.
Food is superb.
Service is extraordinary.
Great food, ambiance, and service. Perfect experience!
Service started off great. But somehow after we ordered our food which was early on took forever to come. Only an issue as we were catching a show at the Civic.
We waited more than an hour for our entrees, noticing that several tables whose guests arrived after us had been served. We were repeatedly told that our food “would be right out.” No explanation was given. We arrived at 5:30 for our reservation and left shortly after 7:00. Because we had theater tickets, about which we told the waiter, we had to leave without eating. As we were getting up, we were told that our entrees were ready, but we would not have had time to eat. We were charged for the appetizer and drinks.
Four of us ate dinner at The Westgate Room before going to a show because of its convenience. For most of our meal, we were the only people eating there. The waiter was very nice, but service was slow. Three of us said the food was only average, the 4th liked his. Two of us had the ravioli and thought that for $26 we had had much better frozen ravioli from Trader Joe’s. We eat at fine dining establishments often. This did not make the cut in any way. As an aside, we had drinks in the bar before dinner. I ordered Campari and soda with a twist. I have been drinking this for over 20 years and have never been served a twist of lime. It tastes awful with lime.
Food was decent but took a very long time - even the appetizer.
This is the best brunch in San Diego. Something for everyone in a rarely found elegant setting.
Excellent. Our greatest expectations are satisfied
We thoroughly enjoyed our NYE dinner date!
The food was excellent! The waiter was excellent! The restaurant was kept very cool for December 31st. I asked the waiter to turn the AC down which I think he did, but it wasn't enough. Many customers were wearing their coats during the meal, so it wasn't just me.
The fish was fair, the potatoes in the gnocchi were underdone. The steak was good as were the squash. However the menu servings did not match the menu descriptions.
Great place. Very good service and food. Excellent for pre or post theatre dinner
I made the reservation specifying birthday, but not one word was mentioned about it. Other than that, Westgate is a lovely experience.
Food was fantastically and the holiday decorations were a lot of fun 🙂
Elegant on all fronts without being stuffy. The Westgate is, in every way, special occasion in the ambiance, the food and the service. Accomplishing all of this while making the diner feel, at all times, very comfortable is a rare feat.
Beautifully appointed hotel and restaurant. Service was great, attentive but not overly so. Overall a very nice dining experience before the theater.
Fabulous service. Fabulous food and flavor. Fabulous intimate dining with friends.
Wanted a restaurant near the Civic Center for dinner prior to show. This lovely hotel and restaurant was perfect. Meals are reasonably priced, everything was prepared exactly as ordered. Will visit again.
The staff was very helpful and accommodating after a mixup with our reservation. Fantastic service.
Dining room seemed dated. Average age of other diners was “dead.” Past its prime.
We stayed at the hotel and dined at the Westgate Room on Tuesday, 4/2/19. We were seeing Carmen at the Civic Theater and enjoyed the special “Opera Menu” that the Westgate Room offers. It was delicious, as usual. The crab cakes were crisp on the outside and fresh and moist in the inside. Soooo good. And the Baja Sea Bass with Parmesan Gnocchi was flakey and perfectly cooked. Very flavorful. It’s such a treat to dine here.
We were a group of four. My dinner, salmon, was very good. The other three had sea bass. Two were good, one was terrible. Very mushy and only warm.
Elegant and attentive service. Excellent food. Lovely ambiance
Great hotel. We were treated like royalty. Thank you very much you made my wife’s birthday a complete success
Food was as good a usual. Service was a bit slow do to the pre-opera crowd. Still a top choice.
Was absolutely brilliant. I loved it!
The Westgate Room used to be one of my favorite restaurants in San Diego. The tableside ceasar salad and the incredible entrees complimented the decor of this dining room. This time the ceasar was mediocre without the burst of flavors from the lemon juice, egg, garlic and anchovies that it used to have. Gilberto would be sad to see it served that way. And unfortunately my entree (kurobutta pork chop) was flavorful but lukewarm at best when our table only had 4 guests. Even the after-dinner coffee was a bit tepid. I would maybe recommend the restaurant to others who are going to a nearby play in the future but probably not for the outstanding food that it once had a few years back. I would love to see Chef Fabrice bring back the quality to make finishing with Jazz in the lounge more magical.
Before theatre dinner.
Always excellent in every way
Pre opera dining
