Our server was amazing! The food never disappoints!
During these COVID times West End has done an outstanding job of separating tables and continuing the excellent food and service.
Everything was amazing!
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.
FOOD IS ALWAYS GOOD AND WE WANTED TO SUPPORT A LOCAL RESTAURANT
Best restaurant around! Great food, great service, and great atmosphere! This is by far my favorite 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!
Great but sadly empty cause of virus but waiter said they wiped menus and all down! As good as always! Go!
We're regulars here - a hidden gem. Recommended for sure !
Loved our waitress, Aubrey!! Would definitely ask for her again. Pleasantly surprised with the twilight menu!
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.
Always delicious food, artistically prepared, service is excellent
Overall great experience. Had a one price special which includes appetizer, main and dessert. Had the pork chop and it was perfect. Service and drinks were very good
Hadn’t been there is many, many years. Was outstanding. Early bird dinner a great value.
Great food and ambience
A great place to have a great meal every-time. I tried a new dessert and love it.
Excellent as always. The twilight menu is a great value with lots of choices. Never disappoints!
Tucked in the corner of a shopping mall but wonderful! Cioppino was awesome. Fun bartenders.
Excellent waiter...Food VG, as usual! Breads always a treat
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.
Excellent service, food etc. too noisy
Alwyas the best go to restaurant! Never lets is down
We love to celebrate birthdays here. Never too loud to hear one another. Food is consistent and service is great!
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!
Great as usual
Food is always exceptional. Have been going for years. You won't be disappointed!
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!
Lovely evening, the prefix was a great value! Will be sure to go back with my family. Something for everyone --even the picky eaters.
Great dinner and amazing waitress. Food was excellent as always,
As usual, price fixe dinner totally worth it - multiple choices - all delicious!
It was an enjoyable evening and the food was delicious.
Great food at reasonable prices.
Meal perfect but desserts where disappointing. That pistachio sundae sure took a dive!
always consistent! food excellent. service great. honored resv. on time! a go to always!
We went for the twilight menu. It is a great value and you get to enjoy the good things on the menu.
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.
