West End Cafe
Need to book at 4:15 PM?Other great restaurants with availability.
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.
I felt very rushed ... it was the last night of restaurant week & were seated, Orderd and served 3 courses in an hour. It would have been nice if I’d been given a few more minutes before the next course came out. I couldn’t even eat or enjoy the desert because it came out so fast after dinner. It was ice cream so it’s not like I could have asked for it to go. All in all the food was very good, they just need to slow down a little.
Great deal for restaurant week. The flat iron steak was excellent and the portions were plentiful.
To close for table setting but the food and service was wonderful. Recommend a during the week reservation. Not the quiet place for Friday or Saturday. But good no doubt. Good value!
Never a disappointment great staff, great meal have never heard anyone leave unhappy
The menu was eclectic and everything we ordered was prepared to perfection! We live on LI and are thrilled when we can enjoy a delectable meal without going into Manhattan! We had the rock shrimp taco appetizer and beet & goat cheese salad.. mmm so good! Then braised boneless short ribs and shrimp risotto followed by a fabulous walnut apple vanilla ice cream dessert. Everything was fantastic! Be sure to make a reservation as it is always packed!
A nice meal. Restaurant week and the choices were pretty good. We had the organic chicken and the pork. Both Very good. Desserts good (warm brownie and Apple Crisp) and and we liked our appetizers of Shrimp Tacos and Salad. The place was packed as it is always busy - no matter what day you go. Packed to the point that it's uncomfortable. Squeezing tables together etc. The parking lot handicapped ramp was a dangerous joke. In fact, saying you're handicap accessible? Well - let's just say the definition of accessible for those physically challenged is up to debate. I found it all pretty difficult. But; I still think WEC is a 4 star experience.
West End has been a favorite restaurant of mine. On 1/30/20 I went for dinner. Upon sitting down, I felt something pinch me. When I moved I felt something caught in my pants and tear them. I stood up and saw that the chair had a piece of the wicker material sticking out. I informed our server but no reaction. I then asked if they could bring me another chair. After waiting for 5 minutes, I had to swap the chair with another empty table’s chair. After about another 2 to 3 minutes they finally showed up with a chair. When dessert arrived I asked the server if I could speak to the manager. I had found it strange that he had not stop by the table to inquire if everything was ok. Turns out that he was neither informed or dismissed the incident when told. After I explained what happened, he asked how much the pants had cost so that he could refund me. He didn’t understand that it wasn’t about the pants, it was about the nonchalant way that it was handled by the server, bus-boy and him (manager). I did receive a gift card as compensation.
The food was outstanding. Sometimes I hesitate to order salmon because it can be boring, but the West End Cafe got it right it was flavorful, moist and delicious.
The 5 stars for value was because it was Restaurant Week, normally I find it a bit overpriced. After my meal tonight, perhaps the prices are justified.
The noise level can get very loud, but requiring a seat against the wall worked very well.
As fork service, Our we received our food promptly, but the server wasn’t very friendly
Great place for lunch, dinner or just drinks. It's been there for a very long time and is still packed!
The wait staff is exceptional! The dining experience couldn’t have been better!
Excellent food and service. Never a bad meal here. Truly enjoyable
Always a constant great meal! Love this place.
The food was excellent as always except for the shrimp tacos had absolutely no flavor. The duck tacos on the other hand were excellent! We have them every time we go!
Great. Family celebration.
This was the time my family went. The food was really good, enjoyed everything. The salmon was cooked perfectly. My Dad and husband had the shell steak , which they enjoyed. Our server Aubrey was amazing. My only issue, the tables are really close so we felt cramped.
It was our first time here. The food and service was great! We were a party of 8 and we all stated that we would come again.
Sadly my chicken was cold. Our waiter didn’t seem so thrilled to be there either. Everyone else’s food was really good though
I haven’t had a meal that good in 10 years. The service was incredible the food was out of this world. The atmosphere was beautiful. I highly recommend this restaurant. I will be back ASAP.
We love West End Cafe for a special occasion or an elegant night out. The food and service are outstanding and creative menu options. They also have a twilight menu with many options and prix fix for three courses.
Have come here often in the past. Food was always good. This time it was horrific. Pork chop was a chunk of fat. Ribs were overly salty. Dessert was fair, at best. I heard that this restaurant went downhill, but I had to see for myself. It WAS really, really bad. Called the next day to complain. Was told the manager would call me back. Never heard from him. Stay away! There are much better restaurants in the area!!!!
Food is amazing! The crab cakes are the best I've ever eaten!
We really like West End Cafe. Food and service are always great. I had the octopus salad and pork chop. Both were fantastic. My wife loved her salmon as well. Can't wait to go back.
Love the menu! There is something for everybody. My husband and I had The tuna tartare, and the salmon. Both were super fresh and inventively prepared. Very enjoyable. We have been here many times over the years. They do not disappoint! PS the warm bread is impossible not to devour! Service was attentive without being overbearing. Desserts were divine! We will continue to enjoy many meals at The West End Café.
Consistently excellent. One of our favorite places!
We love the West End Cafe where the service is ALWAYS first rate as is the food, drink and atmosphere.
Once again great food and great service.
Great bottle of wine with dinner
Never a disappointment... I’ve been going there since it opened and will never stop
I have been to West End Cafe numerous times and have never been disappointed! Chose it for a birthday dinner for a special friend. Our reservation changed from 9 to 8 people and we were offered prix fixe menus in addition to the regular menu...so nice and not expected! Everyone raved about their appetizers and main courses-delicious!
The service was attentive and unobtrusive. Truly a winner of an evening!
We were there early enough to take advantage of the twilight special menu. A three course menu for one price. It was well worth it. Choices were excellent and plentiful. I had the duck tacos as an appetizer and the short ribs as my main course, the carrot cake was my dessert choice. All delicious. I would highly recommend getting there early enough to take advantage of this menu.
