A very nice evening at the West Oak. Awaome meal and very good service from their team of waiters. The level of the music was a bit high for me, but it was nice music. If I leaving in Vancouver I would return without a doubt!

We went to this restaurant for the sablefish. We were not disappointed for it is probably the best sable food dish I've had in many years. The ambience was bright and lively, service was very prompt efficient and understanding especially taking care of vegan dishes for some of our guests. The rest of the appetizers and other dishes was also very very good. We plan to go back again when it is not so hectic like it was just before concert time on Saturday.

The menu is quite diverse, with a lot of selections to please a variety of tastes. Service was excellent throughout; our server was very friendly & personable and professional at the same time. Food was delicious! I was particularly happy that the sides weren't neglected. Everything was seasoned properly and meat temperatures were spot on.

My sole complaint was the volume level of the music. We arrived at 8:15 PM and everything was great, volume-wise, until about 10:00 PM when the music was just about doubled in volume and the restaurant turned into a quasi-nightclub. If that's your thing, great, but for myself and my friends, we just wanted to go have a great meal and a chat, and this really wasn't our scene.

I would come back for lunch or an early dinner, but wouldn't want to be there during "nightclub hours" again.

We enjoyed our dinner at West Oak. Salmon was well cooked - not at all overdone. My table mates enjoyed their dinners - the scallops and burger.

A small point of irritation - re-cover your banquettes. It makes you look like you don't care.

My first visit to West Oak and we went for happy hour. The waiter was super friendly as soon as we sat down and had us immediately very comfortable and laughing. We ordered a variety of plates off the happy hour menu and were surprised by how inexpensive they were. The plates were all very reasonable in size and were quite good! Although we were underwhelmed by the calamari which was quite a softer texture than I prefer mine to be. The West Oak salad I very much enjoyed, as well as the avocado hummus. A nice spot to catch up with friends and/or for date night. I would go back again and try some drinks at happy hour next time!

Sketchy (but sincere) service. The wait staff is either extremely new or the communication between kitchen and staff needs some work. Items kept being delivered to us that we did not order (we noticed this happening to other tables as well) and we had one order delivered that was not correct. We also had vodka martinis that were incorrectly made - the bartender squeezed lemon juice into the glasses with the vodka. Sorry, not a martini. One of us had the roasted cauliflower soup which was bland although a generous serving. The calamari was very good. Nicely seasoned and good portion. Caesar salad was crisp and fresh (although it was delivered with a large piece of salmon which we did not order). Braised lamb shank was quite good. Excellently prepared (moist, great seasoning, nice veggies). Catch of the day (halibut) was generous and flavorful. The roasted salmon was also really good. Somehow, fresh (but burnt) cookies were delivered to the table next to us and then were delivered to our table and the server wasn't sure why the cookies were presented (errors in the order?) - turned out the table next to us also had order problems so we shared the (burnt) cookies with them as community sympathy. The food is really quite good but the staff needs to get on board. Nice folks but they all looked confused.
