Tables on patio are WAY too close together. Very noisy, music too loud.
Table size was inconvenient, claustrophobic.

Visited on May 10, 2019 for lunch with 2 other people (so party of 3) – it took over an hour to get our meals. There was a party of 8 seated near us and it seemed like making those meals brought the kitchen to its knees. Of the 3 meals, one was good (pasta and lobster); the quinoa bowl that I had desperately needs help in the flavour department – not sure the buttermilk dressing does anything for it. The roasted cauliflower was so dry, I asked for olive oil. What I really wanted to ask for was (in addition to the olive oil): balsamic vinaigrette, black olives, sun-dried tomatoes and feta cheese to add some flavour to the quinoa bowl. The third person (our birthday guest) had the hanger steak special and when the server put his dish down, I caught a whiff of what I thought was meat going bad. I was waiting to see if he would say anything but he did not – it was very awkward. Also, the water they serve is room temperature – it was a hot day so I thought about asking for ice but I just couldn`t be bothered as I was already so annoyed about the delay in getting our meals. My wife wouldn`t go back, but I'd give it another go to be fair.

Food was excellent. Started off with the calamari appetizer which was great. My husband had the 8 oz steak and it was the most tender piece of meat and cooked to perfection. My daughters and I had the salmon and sable fish and they were both very good. We were really happy with all our meals.
Service was great also.

Food was ok, served quickly. Lambshank was missing flavour.

Service though was deplorable. We had a trainee walk up and start serving us water. No hellos from anyone, no specials, introductions to the menus. When asked for a Zinfandel, the response was “...like to eat?” Wasn’t once served wine, had to pour out wines ourselves. Main course meals were taken away, not asked how they were.

Used to go here now and then but there’s so many other places I can go to for chinois prawns!

First Time Patron. The waitress was very friendly and attentive to our needs. The menu had a good selection for west coast diners. We had a limited time for dinner so the waitress made sure the food came out quickly so we could return to our conference in time. I had the lobster linguine which was delicious. I would say the portions were smaller than expected and there wasn't as much lobster for the price. Overall a good experience but keep expectations on the low on the portion size.

I arranged a friendly but business lunch and found the service very accommodating to us. We wanted some time to consider our lunch selection but more importantly, get some business and updating out of the way and were given time and space to do so. Not at all felt rushed and not bothered by constant interruptions from the staff. In all, very enjoyable, nicely appointed restaurant with well trained and well presented staff. We enjoyed the food as well. Thank you West Oak.

My colleagues and I dined at West Oak on Friday March 22. On arrival, we were quick to notice our servers foul mood and attitude. At one stage, I saw him huffing and rolling his eyes when I wanted to order a drink - very unprofessional. It was as if we were bothering him by being there. He ruined our entire dining experience, which is a a shame as we were really looking forward to our evening.

We had a fab time as the food and environment were tremendous. The only downside was that the tables are so close that the neighbouring guests can hear your conversation. Sadly, our neighbours rudely interrupted our meal and conversation to express displeasure with our discussion. We thought this to be quite odd...we considered moving but didn't want to cave to their displeasure. So we continued in softer tones. When chatting beware of your neighbours !
