    We love Westside Local, my son chooses this restaurant every year for his bday dinner, so that’s why we went last night. I have never had such slow service here before. Maybe they were short handed? I’m not sure but it took over 30 mins to get our main course ordered and it was well over an hour before we saw food. We had to beg for water and then our check was inadvertently voided after we paid it. Making the night an even longer one when we were all tired and just wanted to go home at that point. It also seems like they have changed their menu such that it looked like you could only order cocktails on certain days of the year? Idk it was confusing and since we only saw our waitress every 30 minutes or so, it wasn’t worth asking about. Despite the poor service and the confusing menu, our food was delicious as always.

    Outstanding. Cool spot with nice people, excellent service and extraordinary food. Interesting cocktails and exciting appetizers. The Chef’s Board is recommended.

    Always wonderful to eat here. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is open but intimate. Servers are always so nice and knowledgeable. If you haven’t been to WL, you’re missing out.

    Great brunch with family on Sunday. The first time goers loved the burger and Brussel sprout toast. The grilled cheese with brown sugar bacon was a hit along with the deviled eggs and spicy pickles. Their red sangria may be the best ever had. The place is loud but fun.

    The food was second to none. Our server infrequently visited our table. We saw him 2-3 times. Other staff brought out our food and the check. I’ll be back for the food.
