As usual, our dinner experience at West End Café was amazing. This restaurant NEVER disappoints!! We ordered from the price fix menu, which had amazing selections to choose from, and is an excellent value. I had the Beet salad for a 1st course, hubby had the meatballs out of the oven with ricotta. Both were excellent... especially the meatballs! Being Italian, I can appreciate a good meatball, and this was about as good as they get! For dinner, I had the parmesan crusted chicken, served with homemade pappardelle pasta, and it was luscious. Portion was huge, so I took home 1/2 of it. Hubby had the cast iron organic chicken, served with roasted vegs.. he loved it. We both had carrot cake for dessert. It's not a stretch to say it's probably the best we ever tasted. LOVE WEST END CAFE!!

We have frequented this restaurant for many years.
It is consistently good food; some even innovative.
Two of the items had to be returned to the kitchen, as they were not hot through - the Onion Soup and the mashed potatoes. This is always annoying....you want to begin your meal, but
it is not all in place.

Used to be my favorite restaurant. Not any more. Went for a birthday dinner. Portions were surprisingly small. Waitress hung out at our table trying to push us out to make room for others. We were only there for 1 1/2 hours, which is not long for a Saturday evening dinner. Spoke to others who have eaten at this restaurant. All agree that it lost its top rating. Would NOT recommend this restaurant anymore. There are other great restaurants in the immediate area.

Great food--a little pricey for lunch. $3.50 for iced tea! But I go back!

We were disappointed that the twilight menu was not offered on news years dsy. This has been our number one favorite place since they opened. We ordered burgers which were just okay. French fries were nothing special. Loved our salads. Service was not exceptional. What can we say. Website should have been updated to indicate that the twilight menu was not available

Arrived at 4:50pm on Saturday. Was told by host, “we don’t open for ten more minutes “. When making online reservations, was asked if it was a special occasion. Yes, my birthday. Was never acknowledged. Appetizer, “meatballs “, served cold inside. Entree, pork chop, - was tuff and under cooked. Pink in center. Had to ask server for second cup of coffee. Felt ackward.
