    We are frequent patrons of West End…we opted for the Twilight menu as we normally do. Maybe it was an off night, but 2/4 main courses weren’t wonderful like they usually are. The pork chop was dry and the romano chicken wasn’t very good. The pappardelle were stuck together, the bread of the chicken didn’t stick to the chicken. Flavor was good, but those 2 qualities are very important. Sadly, 2 of us got the brownie sundae and the brownie tasted like it was microwaved and the ice cream was melted. I have a picture of the dessert if needed. The other 2 desserts were the fruit crisp, which both people said was great. Overall, it wasn’t a terrible meal, but definitely not fabulous as it usually is.

    We were dining with friends we hadn’t seen in years. The staff was patient while we were talking before we even looked at menus. They were patient as we stayed awhile after finishing our meal. Everything was great.

    The food and service was excellent. I had the shell steak and it was prepared perfect. My wife had the risotto and scallops and loved it. However, I guess because of the current economy we felt it was priced a little high for what we had. We’ve eaten here before on several occasions it left today feeling we paid a lot.

    This was the 4th time eating here, and it seems they keep getting better. They have a GREAT prefix dinner. Three course meal for $40. The Asian duck tacos are incredible. Great drinks to boot.

    I'm a foodie. Great dinner value for the price fixed menu. Regular menu is also well priced and the menu is varied. Food is consistently great. Fresh and not run of the mill. You can't go wrong with dinner here. I've been going as long as they've been open.

    Its always a great experience for me at West End. The service is always great. I love the Crispy Duck Tacos! And the Mediterranean Mule Cocktails are always fantastic! Especially in this awfully hot weather. Its definitely one of my favorite spots to eat.

    Lunch for two was $120 with tax and tip, which seemed high. I specifically asked the waiter what kind of lettuce was going in my Cobb salad and he said “mixed greens”. However it was nothing more than iceberg when it arrived. Additionally the bacon, egg, and avocado which were supposed to be in the salad were microscopic portions. I didn’t see any egg yolk and only some bits of egg white. I don’t remember seeing any avocado. The bacon was a crumbled half-slice, at best. It was good but I have certainly had better Cobb Salads for less. It was FREEZING in the dining room but they did adjust the temperature after several diners complained. Drinks were good and the dessert was extremely small (four bites at best) but tasty. Our waiter was friendly and accommodating. Nice lunch place but I might want to try a different place next time where lunch isn’t priced like a dinner. It was just ….okay.

    Less crowded than usual for a Saturday night. Duck tacos and beet salad were very good. The short ribs were average at best (supposedly one of their favorites) and the scallops were fine. Chicken dish was different (new menu choices?). Didn’t have dessert as those options were also different. Overall a nice meal but not as good as in the past.

    West End Cafe has consistently delivered an excellent dining experience. The staff are pleasant and professional. Our most recent visit was no less than excellent. Service by Yvonne was very accommodating. Food prepared as advertised, fresh, delicious and with prime ingredients. Always a “first choice” restaurant.

    We both ordered the seared tuna salad with soba noodles. Sounded great. First bite - soooo salty. Way too much soy sauce,etc.? Now I’m generally sensitive to salt but when my lunch mate also found it inedible we had to send it back. They brought new plates with the sauce on the side. (Actually how it should’ve come in the first place.). We also shared a dessert. The apple cobbler with vanilla ice cream. To die for. Excellent!

    We have been here many times. We keep going back because it’s a great place. I had the burrata salad which they always have but it changes slightly everytime. My hubby and I both got the short ribs which were fabulous. I had a white chocolate caramel cake and the hubby got the strawberry cheesecake which were both excellent. You owe it to yourself to try this place. You won’t be disappointed!
