Went for a concert at the Observatory. Great idea because you don’t have to wait in line, just show ticket and get a wristband and you are able to eat and drink and then walk in when the doors open. Good happy hour but could use some more food deals. Will be back for sure if another concert there.

We ate before the Snoop concert and found the staff to be extremely friendly, the food was superb, and it was a fantastic pre-show atmosphere.

I brought my son, it was her first time there. Everyone was so accommodating, friendly. And very engaging. Brian our server was on point with his food suggestions and drink suggestions. He asked a few questions to understand what type of things and items we would like, and was able to suggest exactly what we were looking for. The other servers we’re also friendly and I love the teamwork that they all had in assisting each other. No one was stepping over each other, communication flowed well. And because of that it increased efficiency and quality of their service. I will definitely come back to this place and highly recommend it to others.

Night 1: Upon being seated at my table, a member of the staff asked if I had a reservation to sit there as if she were planning to ask me to leave. I replied yes, and she asked again asked if I really had a reservation? I again replied yes, and she then asked if the hostess confirmed my reservation and sat me at the table. I again said yes, and asked her why she didn't believe me? She said she didn't believe me because the table wasn't wiped down and was dirty, which it was. She said she would confirm with the hostess I had a reservation.

It was a busy night, but this restaurant is part of a music venue with sold out shows nightly so I would expect it to be amply prepared for the amount of business for any given show. It took our server 20 minutes to arrive and another 20 minutes to receive or drinks. When we received our drinks I asked our server to put in a second order for drinks because of the amount of time it took to serve the first order. He said he could not order any further drinks for us until the drink we had was less than 1/3 full. We waited another 30 minutes until he returned to check our drinks and ask if we wanted more. I politely said no, check please.

Night 2: The only reason I returned is because the restaurant is attached to the music venue. The service was pretty much exactly the same with our server disappearing for 30 minutes at a time or more. We were there for 2 hours and were able to successfully order 2 drinks.

My impression of this place is that they do not want you there and they do not want your business. The upside to the lack of service was our bill was only 1/3 of what it would have been anywhere else, so it was economical. The food was excellent. It is a shame they are clueless on service.

I got the Tacos because it was Tuesday, the Chicken tacos were a little spicy. But I am not a spice person, the drink was good and so was the Spinach dip with veggies. Tacos were very good.

The service was terrible and the staff was rude especially the security guard, hostess and manager Paris Landen. The hostess refused to seat us at a table in the restaurant stating all tables were reserved and told us we had to sit in the bar although the couple after us was seated at a table. The restaurant was mainly empty with at least 12-15 tables available and we were there early prior to peak dinner times.

My boyfriend and I came here for his birthday before a concert and loved it. We split the avocado grilled cheese and tomato soup and it was amazing as a light dinner! The fries were super tasty and the ketchup had a spicy kick to it. The cocktails were unique and delicious. It was a perfect spot to go before the concert we had planned. I would definitely go again!

I've been to West Coast Tavern a couple of times now, and so far it's my favorite bar on the 30th & University corner. Why? Because they stay open until 2am every night and have a late night happy hour... $4 beers after 11pm, how can you go wrong?

Service has always been friendly, and Imma make sure I hit up Tony Tony Tony every time I come here. Guy's got his bartender skills down.

I'll try the food here sooner or later, but as their kitchen closes at midnight, I'm not usually here in time.

We made a reservation the day of our date - patio - then went to the show at Observatory afterwards. Perfect location for that. Food was good - menu selections were ok, a little pricy for bar food. (we shared a flatbread and both got tomato soup, had a couple drinks, and bill was over $70). I would go again.

We have frequented this tavern in the past five years and have always had good service, food and ambiance. This time it was so dang loud that we (the three of us) just sat and stared at each other as we could not even yell it was so loud! The waitress was on her toes and generally affable but my food was horrible: overcooked with no tastes. When I brought this to the attention of the waitress/manager, they were more than eager to make it right. Although I declined an additional meal, they kindly took it off the tab and provided me with a new plate at their cost. I can say at this point we will never go back due to the noise alone. It was MISERABLE!

We came for brunch and it was ok. My steak was a little too charred on the outside for me. They say us at a bar style table even tho we had a our 3 year old who could easily fall off. Even tho we asked to be moved to vacant tables they just offered a chair with a back. On top of that the table was really wobbly. Service was ok.

This place has gone way down hill compared to previous years. It's used to be one of my favorite spots for brunch. The menu sucks now; minimal food choices despite an entire drink page. It's like they forgot they have a kitchen! I definitely won't be returning.

Bacon, bacon & bacon...

Whatever you do, don't forget to order a cinnamon roll (good for 2). Bacon bits on top with a large scoop of icing. To. Die. For.

Deluxe Bloody Mary nearly a meal in itself...
