Been here before.. took friends who were from out of town visiting with us this time. Recommended the Chinois Prawns which is our fave appy. I had the calamari first then and sable fish as my Main course. Very delicious food and our server was also quite attentive.

Great atmosphere, delicious food. Ask for the patio, super cozy, quiet and relaxing on a chilly evening.

First time here for brunch! I was impressed. Great menu, service is wonderful as always, and their patio is cute even in the cooler weather. Another reason to go to West Oak.

The food and the ambiance were both really great! I had the tofu and quinoa bowl, and I’m pretty particular on how my tofu is cooked, and it was cooked perfectly. They had this heated outdoor patio was really nice to sit in during a sunny but cold day! I’ll definitely be going back there soon.

We had a celebratory birthday brunch at West Oak--our first visit to the restaurant. The staff were to a person excellent as was the delicious and very reasonably priced food. Thanks for the great experience, West Oak. We'll be back.

West Oak is our new favourite place to eat in Vancouver. Every dish we ordered was perfectly prepared and fantastically flavoured. These guys are doing it right! Skip the Yaletown Keg next door and go one door down to West Oak, you won't be disappointed.

Great food at reasonable prices. Service was not great. I expected better service levels. Constantly looking for my server. Also, my knapkin feel on the floor and my server just picked it up and gave it to me without offering me a clean new one.

West Oak has a nice ambiance and is good for social or business meetings, and it has a good vibe. The food was hit and miss.

My main course was the lemongrass Sablefish, and it was delicious. Wonderfully prepared, right temperature, and great sides.

The beet and burrata salad was a disappointment, especially for $18. Just based on the name one would expect those two pieces to be the centerpiece of the plate, but this was basically a spring mix with chunks of beets and a lump of Burrata. There was no sense of artistry or presentation.

Also, burrata should be soft, creamy, and luxurious, and is generally to be served at room temperature. This burrata was small, cold, hard, and felt like they were just checking the box to get it on the plate. Maybe I would pay $9 for that salad and think it was just OK, but it certainly doesn't justify its current prices.

So, would I go back? Yes, its a nice place, but I'd ask first about preparation before ordering.

Happy hour menu was good value. Seafood Salad was delicious. Lobster tagliatelle ended up being served with fettuccine noodles. They were undercooked and made fora disappointing entree. No quality check by the staff until after we ate everything. Bar seating along the wall is busy with traffic and the door to the patio was open a lot so it was very cool at times.

The food was amazing and unreal. Tasty flavours in every bite. The atmosphere was romantic and comfortable.

It was also my bf’s birthday, they were so sweet to give him a birthday treat with a candle.

Will definitely refer friends to come here.

Definitely a bit disappointed with the small amount of burrata that comes with the prosciutto appetizer. Only ordered it for the burrata and kind of wish I got the burrata salad instead. Should have ask the waitress for her opinion but didn’t think it would be that little.

Very happy with the seating though! Requested a booth and got a really great one!

The food was AMAZING! The service was very good. Our only complaint was that the music was very very loud. It was hard to keep a conversation and it felt like we were having dinner at the very core of the club. Overall is a great place to eat!

We arrive a little bit late for our reservations and they seated us right away. The waitress was great she told us about happy hour and the dine out Vancouver menu. She even came back and let us know that happy our was ending. The food was great, we will be going back.

Fantastic Dine out experience. Appies were fantastic and the Chefs desert was great. The mains were tasty but did not blow me away with flavour like the Appies did. Would be even better with a wine pairing option. Great service and all round experience.

Went there with my girlfriends for a birthday dinner and the food was amazing! We loved the atmosphere, only downside was the service. The waitress was not very friendly or accommodating when that is her job. Would have made the experience much more enjoyable if she had just been a bit more friendly.

I’ll start off with the food being absolutely amazing! No room to improve there.
We had a reservation for 7:30. I called at 7:10 to let them know as a courtesy that we were running a tiny bit late and would be there no later than 7:40. We got there at 7:37 but weren’t seated until 8:04. We almost walked out. When we were seated it was nice but as loud as a bar on game night, not the ambience we were looking for. The appetizers were incredible as well as the rest of the food but the dishes just sat on the table until the next course came. It could be just me but I hate empty dishes sitting in front of me.
It was nice to try but as amazing as the food was I don’t think we’ll go again. Well, not right away anyways.
