Server 2 Carlos C Was kind and professional as can be. He worked the bar as well as our table. We were made to feel welcomed and appreciated. He was very patient and understanding with a few extra request. And that is one of the reasons we love West End Café. I know what to expect. And they never disappoint. Thank you so very much Carlos you were great!
Always a good experience. Food and service consistently superior.
But you didn’t have my perfect pear martini on the menu!!!! But that’s ok. I “settled” for Sancerre.
Worth the trip from Brookllyn👌
Never disappointed 😊
The West End Café is one of our all-time favorite restaurants. The food is always fresh and delicious. And there is always, always service with a smile. We so look forward to our next dinner.
Finally a restaurant that has not sacrificed quality. Great food, drinks and ambiance.
This had been one of my favorites, and I had been looking forward to finally returning. When I was seated, I noticed a sort of moldy odor, probably from the air conditioner. I was seated in the back where they put up curtains to separate the tables that are very close together. What did that protect me from? I think it was less safe than being out in the open where the tables are farther apart. If you look at their supposed health and safety rules, they didn't do anything that I saw, except the waiter wore a mask. My food was OK, but a bit salty. Sad to say I won't be going back soon.
Food was served quickly, but it was cold. Seemed pre made and flavorless.
Delicious food! Great time! Love west end!!
The Twilight menu is the best! Great selection at a great price.
It was good to be back at the West End Cafe again. The food was delicious as ever and the service was great.
Consistently the best food and ambiance on Long Island. Classy and low key. Perfect for all occasions or a night out.
Food is better than ever. Waitstaff friendly and helpful. A bit too loud.
Wonderful as usual
Food service and drink were excellent
Wonderful time with great food and service.
Lovely experience as usual
West End Cafe in Carle Place never disappoints. The service, ambiance, food, and safety protocols are all fantastic!
Haven't been here in 18 months. Food better than ever! Server was personable, charming and efficient. Outside and inside dining.
So happy to see this place is back at it! We had always loved it here and tried it a few months back when dining was still very limited and found the experience to not be the best. However, now everything was yummy - and they have the full menu with those delish chef special ravioli! Always a fave. Service was great and they were super accomodating of our lateness (so so sorry!) because we got stuck in traffic. Definitely will be back :) Yum!
Perfect. They have gone out if their way to make returning diners feel comfortable
We had a lovely dinner and our waiter was very attentive.
We both ordered off of the Prix Fixe Twilight Menu. The choices were great, and everything tasted delicious.
West End Cafe is consistently good!
I highly recommend West End Cafe. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is relaxing.
Haven’t been to west end cafe in 15 years. Always liked the food. They partitioned tables nicely for covid, but there’s still an odor. Think the roof leaks and there’s always a slight musty smell. Does a nice lunch crowd nonetheless.
Excellent food with great service. Also very well spaced for social distance.
Great family dinner and missed this place due to COVID. Tuna and salmon were fresh and perfect.
Can’t wait to return with our friends
Delicious food! Great service!
The City Cellar's food and service are always great. This visit I enjoyed the grilled octopus, branzino and chocolate cake for dessert. I had a wonderful evening dining in the outdoor space.
We chose to dine outdoors as it was a beautiful night. The service was excellent. The food was outstanding. We had the twilight dinner menu and every item on the menu was worthwhile. Our table had the salads as an appetizer and the the shrimp in risotto, salmon with ratatouille, and pork chops as a main course. We each had one of the desserts offered and everything was delicious. I would highly recommend this place for dining. It's a winner!!
Been to West End Cafe a handful of times. And I could definitely say w 100 percent certainty that this restaurant is always amazing. From the food to the wait staff. Had app of tuna sashimi pizza and Crispy Rock Shrimp Tacos. Everything was amazing. So amazing I had to order another tuna sashimi pizza. Ingredients fresh and clean eating.
Haven’t been to west end since COVID started, been going ever since they opened 30 years ago. The restaurant looks fantastic even with reduced seating, all COVID restrictions followed. Food was fantastic as always. Service was fine, my only complaint and this is been for years is their liquor and wine pour. I really don’t mind the pricing but the drinks are very short, I ordered orange vodka with club soda and very little vodka taste, and wine was also short poured. The food was outstanding. Calimari and beet salad very good. Rack of lamb the same as always and the short rib was also outstanding. Key lime tart for dessert terrific. The outside setup was really nice and spaced and snaked around the perimeter of the shopping center. Still one of the top 10 restaurants on Long Island.
Some of the best food on Long Island
Great value,friendly staff
Have been going there fir many years
Delicious spot for lunch! Great menu and good service :)
I felt like I was in a private dining room because of the curtain. It was a great experience.
Outstanding in so many ways!!!
The distancing and precautions were greatly appreciated!!!!
First time eating indoors in over a year! West End has ample spacing and partitions between tables yet you still feel the vibes of a lively restaurant.
A favorite place for lunch with friends- food is great and service is excellent, especially our server, Jennifer.
Food and wine excellent with fabulous service Didn’t rush us and we just thoroughly enjoyed the evening
