It was so great to have a change of scene & to be served delicious food. My wife & I had the seared tuna entree with a
glass of sancerre. Our daughter had the organic roast chicken which I tasted . I would give an excellent rating to both. We mossed seeing Lou Rey but he was no doubt busy cooking.

My favorite place to eat on LI! The food was way off its usual high quality. Ordered clams with chorizo and was way too salty and greasy. There was at least 1/2” of oil on the bowl. I ordered the crusted lamb as a main course and I had it many times before. I ordered it medium, but it was very rare. They did take it back and I still think was a little rare, but I ate it. The mash potatoes did taste freshly made and the asparagus were wilted. My wife ordered a salad, but it had no dressing! Waitress claimed they didn’t want to over dress it, but when she brought a side of it we knew for sure that there was not any put on it. My wife ordered a cappuccino we both taste it and it tasted like the little burnt bottom of the pot. The pull pork and dessert were very good. I hope that get it together, maybe they got a little rusty because I really like, and hope I continue to, this restaurant.

This was our first time going to West End. A friend had recommended we try it. we sat at the bar and Ari our bartender was amazing. He was very personable, on top of everything, making sure everything was great for us. The food was spectacular. It has been a long time since we have found a restaurant that has great ambiance, great food, and great staff. We are looking forward to going back again soon!

My only complaint is they rush you a bit. Your table is only reserved for 90 minutes. I think it should be a minimum of 2 hours. Order drinks and they immediately are looking to take your dinner order.

West End Cafe is one of my favorite ladies lunch spot. We were four and each of us had a different meal. Everyone said the food was delicious. I especially loved the farro and quinoa salad which had cranberries in it accompanied with a grilled chicken and Brie panini. There was so much to eat that I took home half the sandwich.

West End cafe is always a favorite go to for us, however Saturday night not so much. Our waiter not very attentive , and we were seated next to very loud noisy table of 4. As the tables are very close together it became almost impossible for the two of us to have a conversation. We should have asked to be moved, our mistake . Of course we will go back because we love the food, but we will be more vocal about our table!

I'm never disappointed when I dine at WEC. Our group is never rushed, the seating around the perimeter of the restaurant is greatly appreciated and service is never overbearing. Menu provides an ample selection for the most discerning patron. Thank you for your continued high quality service!

First time there. Went for Long Island Restaurant week. I was pleasantly surprised with the service and the food. The server was attentive but not overbearing. The food was excellent. I had the pork chop and my date had the salmon. Both were moist and delicious, prepared perfectly.
I would definitely recommend this place and will go back again.
