We came for dinner the last weekend before West-East closes. As usual, we had an excellent meal and reflected on all the good times we've enjoyed at this place. Will miss you and we wish Jay and Raquel the best of luck with their new place in Oakdale

Wasn't happy with the place a couple of years ago; decided to give it another try. Disappointed again. I wanted a burger ---on menu but not available. Another choice was salmon---on menu but not available. Prices high-portions small. Good wine saved the experience. Will NEVER go back and certainly won't recommend it.

I have always like this place and have eaten here often with never a disappointment . Early reservations for dinner Sunday (7PM) and 3 dishes were all out already due to a heavy brunch crowd is what we were told.

So was a little disappointed but I still recommend West East as a place to go

Thanks

Amazing host, been here multiple times, and she's so great! Servers, waiters, waitresses, and busboys, you name it, every single person working at this beautiful and unique restaurant really takes time to make sure that each person who comes into their restaurant is treated very well. And the food? Every single thing I've tried here is beyond delicious, and I keep bringing more and more people here just because I crave their food, and then those people fall in love with the place as well! Presentation of the food is also very pretty. They also have wonderful and very talented live musicians, they bring so much energy to the room. Overall, one of my absolute favorite restaurants in all of New York City and Long Island, with a nice ambiance. Anyone that comes here will be sure to leave with a smile on their face, and will come back again!

Just felt that the food was overpriced....and nothing special. tempura shrimp appetizer was very good...the mahi mahi was dry and the pork belly sandwich was blah.....did not have dessert. the bill was wrong and it took a while for it to be fixed.....not someplace I have any desire to return to.

Dine here about once a month with different friends and family and have never been disappointed. Tried the avocado soup which was divine, very fresh tasting. the gumbo was spicy and chunky. The fluke was cooked to perfection and served on a bed of spicy lentils which complemented the white fish. The saffron creme brulee was to die for and the kulfi never disappoints. The restaurant was quiet for lunch and the service attentive but not intrusive.

West East has been a favorite of our family since it opened. The food is always delicious and fresh. There are so many seasonal favorites that would appeal to any palate. I have a food allergy which I mentioned to the server. After we placed the order, she came back to tell me that an ingredient in the meal was one that I am allergic to, and the chef would prepare the meal without that ingredient. It was a lovely meal to celebrate my husband's birthday. I highly recommend West East to anyone who loves delicious, fresh, seasonal food.

The food here is delicious and of the finest quality. Extra care is taken to insure that everyone's food allergies and sensitivities are addressed. This is a really smart choice if someone in your party has celiac disease or a food allergy. The wait staff makes a big effort to review the menu and direct diners to safe choices. And the food is delicious!!

Greeted and seated quickly. Tables for two were slightly too close to other diners for comfort. Service was a little on the slow side. Lamb burger was good but a little too rare. Requested medium. This was our third time dining here. Previous meals were good. Little on the pricey side. Overall we would recommend.

A good "natural food" restaurant located in a very small strip mall. Service was excellent; food was plated well but I am not so certain that it was as outstanding as advertised. Noise level was moderate-low which made eating there fun and not rushed. Enjoyable-great no. Enjoyable- yes. Guitarist was interesting and not intrusive. Expensive dinner.

I invited friends to meet at West East Bistro the day before Valentine's Day. None of us had eaten there before, so I had poured over the menu on-line. My friends and I all liked the menu. Imagine our surprise when we were given special pre-fixe Valentine's menu with no other options. This was not on their website as of a couple days before. Thankfully, my friends did not mind the imposition of a $40 4-course meal each, but I felt badly for them not having a choice. Two of us had wanted to eat more vegetables than meat, and I don't normally eat 4 courses. So this was a negative and I recommend calling ahead if you're going around a holiday.
Now for the food, everyone enjoyed theirs. I chose this restaurant for their organic food, which is super to have available when dining out. I'd describe the menu as quite flavorful. A nice touch was the musician playing guitar.

This was the second visit for both of us but the first time for brunch. After our initial disappointment that Lobster Mac and Cheese was not on the menu (a problem with their supplier we were told) we settled in for a delicious, unhurried brunch. We started with the salmon appetizer which was not too salty. We both had steak and eggs, a fillet with scrambled eggs, one rare, one medium rare, both done to perfection. Then we ended with a soft chocolate cake which was delicious. The champagne was very pleasant and plentiful and the bellinis were lightly flavored not mixed half and half with juice as you sometimes get at brunches. The choices we made for brunch were very American in character whereas the dinners we had on our first visit were distinctly Asian. We enjoyed both and will return soon. West East Bistro is quickly becoming our favorite LI restaurant.

Another fantastic dinner at West-East Bistro. This farm to table restaurant has a seasonal menu and very creative tasty options. The prix-fixe menu is a great deal. You can't beat 4 courses for $40. The gumbo was delicious and the spring rolls were to die for. The petite filet was perfectly cooked. Another think that I love about this restaurant is that there is a healthy kids menu, but I was disappointed to see that the fish option was taken off. I know that most kids are picky eaters, but some are not and what I loved about this restaurant initially is that they did not dumb down their kids menu with junk food. The waiter explained that they took the salmon off of the kids menu because it was no longer in season and that most kids did not order it so it didn't make sense to keep that option. I understand that, but I would like to suggest that the fish is put back on as "seasonal fish"option for the kids that are not picky eaters. Even though the fish was no longer on the kids menu, the chef was very kind and cut a child size portion of the fish that they had on hand and charged us the kid price. I love this restaurant even more for being willing to do that for our "foodie" child. I hope that this establishment considers putting a fish option back on the kids menu and if not, I hope that they continue to let us order that for our child in the future. I highly recommend this restaurant. You will not be disappointed.

Serves tasty well prepared organic food in a lovely hip yet serene setting. Wait staff were helpful, polite and insightful.
It is located in an under-populated strip mall in an industrial area just off of Route 107. Don't let the location deter you - go! eat! enjoy!

I had a late evening meeting and wanted to grab a quick bit and located this restaurant on OpenTable. The restaurant decorum was beautiful showcasing wonderful portraits and was very soothing. The menu was eclectic, but the items were a bit pricy. The food quality was good, but the quantity was small compared to the cost. Although the service was wonderful, I'm not sure I'd bother going back due to the excessive prices.

We went with another couple and the 4 of us really enjoyed our meal. Everything was fresh and flavorful. The scallops I had were perfectly prepared and served with the best mashed potatoes I ever tasted. The chocolate cake I had for dessert was out of this world. Thanks for a memorable meal.
