It was a great experience. We went as a group of six for a birthday dinner. The food was great, service was excellent and the prices were very reasonable. It can get really noisy in that small dining area but I would definetly go back.
Food was fantastic and the service was exceedingly beyond expectations! Outstanding!
We have been to West Oak several times since we "discovered" it and have never been disappointed. It is an attractive modern bistro nestled among the larger places on Mainland in Yaletown, though big enough to seat large groups and has a dining patio. We find the service friendly and professional and would only suggest making a reservation (the website automatically links you to OpenTable) to avoid the squish waiting at the front desk inside in bad weather. The food is tasty and well-prepared - creative enough to keep us interested and a menu not so wide that it is impossible to get a feeling for their cuisine. The prices are moderate, so have that bottle of wine (a good list!) and for sure have that cookie dessert, oh my goodness!!
We made a reservation over a month in advance and were seated on the patio. We were told that no blankets were available and diners have been taking them. 8 of 10 of us had food arrive at around the same time, the others had to wait for a long time. The restaurant was very loud and the food was mediocre. Our server was fantastic, very personable and responsive.
Our serve was amazing, went there with my boyfriend to celebrate our 3 years together and they made it special by greeting us with champagne and ending the evening with freshly baked cookies.
Highly recommended and the food was amazing.
Good food, and value but brunch vibe was quite weak. Maybe it’s more of a night spot? Despite not being able to make a reservation at the time I wanted, the restaurant was virtually empty. We were highly encouraged to sit on the empty patio, server kept referring to the evening even though it was the morning. Food was tasty but a bit oversold with the local, oceanwise, healthy adjectives upon seating.
Great place to have a special dinner, definitely recommend!
The food was very good, as usual. I’d love to see some more shellfish main dish options! Our waiter (from Paris, Aldon) was great. Super low key, and friendly. Was there when we needed him, but wasn’t unnecessarily talkative.
Hers: Lobster was rubbery and potatoes too hard. Appetizer of calamari was yummy though. // His: West Oak Burger nothing to write home about. On par with A&W.
We came in to celebrate our engagement on Monday. We were looking to try something new. What a great find! Your chef is very talented. The dishes were well plated and the food was very tasty. Our server was wonderful. Great sense of humor. We enjoyed everything! 5 stars for sure. We will be back!!
I cannot wait to go back for some more chinois prawns, so delicious!
West Oak is on the edge of Yaletown and I would highly recommend it for the food and value. However, do not expect good service. Our server was nice enough but it was very slow bar service. Also we almost got the wrong appetizer...ours had to be without nuts...they served the wrong one and came and got it moments before my friend's first bite. Yikes. Not to hate on this place but just a heads up.
Before arriving we were at the theatre and the play was delayed which resulted in us arriving late. We did phone ahead to say we would be late by 10 min and the hostess made it sound like it was a probelm instead of just saying they would hold the table. When we arrived (Sunday at 530pm) the place was 3/4 empty. Odd.
The restaurant called my cell phone 2 hours prior to our reservation to confirm. However, she did not say she was from the restaurant- just hello, who is this. Very inexperienced and unprofessional call. Also we had a very difficult time getting service from our waiter, he was simply too busy. We were unable to order more food and drinks after our initial order. The host promised the waiter would see us, 35 minutes later we were still waiting so the host took our order. The food was great (prawns, ahi tuna, chicken, steak, fries, salads). It was a fun energetic atmosphere. One of my guests complained her burger was cold on the inside and the waiter seemed overwhelmed.
Ok, so we are not the demographic West Oak is targeting. The average age of the crowd was about 35. The noise level made conversation difficult but no-one but us cared. People were having a great time. The food was good: the recommended prawn appy was delicious, my lobster linguine was perfectly cooked and flavourful, my wife had the salmon and it was very good as well. Dessert was panna cotta and an excellent version with raspberries. The service was good, but we did feel like they were rushing us to free up the table. If you are under 40 and looking for a party atmosphere with your dinner, thus is a good spot for you.
Food took too long. Could find our server several times.
Went there for dinner before a Canucks hockey game. Ordered a seafood platter to share and it was AMAZING!!! Super delicious and well portioned. Definitely happy with the meal and the fun ambience.
The food was not the best I have ever tasted, lunch menu was pretty basic but we enjoyed it none the less. Service was great and I would definitely recommend as a nice lunch spot
The food and our server was excellent. Was not aware there was a club at the back of the restaurant. Restaurant was very loud , had to shout all night to be heard at our table.
Went for Taste of Yaletown. The food was okay, they forgot our burrata for our starter, the dessert was also mainly jam instead of panna cotta.
Great night at West Oak. Celebrated anniversary. Got a flute of champagne. Great service with everyone congratulating on the special occasion. Would go back in a heartbeat.
The food was nice, the service was very good. The music was a little too loud though, it was hard to hear my wife from the other side of the table.
The Food was amazing!
Chelsea is always the best and always a great experience. I will be back 😎
Had a great dinner here! We sat on the patio, which was a little chilly due to a gap in the plastic -- that's my only complaint about our dinner. The food was fantastic -- prepared perfectly. The service was great. I'll definitely go back when I'm in Vancouver.
We had an awesome dinner and outstanding service. We actually sat at the high top tables in the bar area which was noisy but the atmosphere was still very comfortable. Our server Chelsey, made our dinning experience even better. Chelsey is exactly what a server needs to be. She was always on top of her game and made us feel right at home with recommendations for wine and food. It was a pleasant dinning at West Oak. Thanks
Good ambiance, nice cozy open kitchen. Food taste alright but everything was slow. And there weren’t that many customers.
Perfect place for a normal brunch in yaletown.
6 of us enjoyed dinner here the other night. This a staple Vancouver restaurant for us. It's reasonably priced with nice decor and great food and service. The prawn appetizer is a mainstay for an appetizer and the mussels. I had the chicken dinner and it was cooked to perfection. Everyone loved their meal.
I normally stay away from chicken when I eat out but their roasted chicken was the best I've had in a very long time. Everything from service to food was great. Would definitely recommend.
I chose West Oak randomly and it exceeded my expectations. Food, service and atmosphere were all great and great value. It is the best calamari that I have had in Vancouver. I will be returning.
We had a very nice meal at West Oak. Our server was super nice and did a great job. She made us feel very welcome,
Steak was chewy and I'm not even convinced it was the cut I ordered. If it was, it was not high quality.
Happy hour was amazing! Amazing service and great food, enjoyed it all!! Will definitely come back!
Great fun and atmosphere! Very good service, top waitress!
The food was amazing! The service was superior, with attention to every detail! We’ll be back for sure!
Another great place in Yale town good food very nice rustic look. Great service, we will go again!
Awesome service and great food!
Kitchen and waiter hurried our meal. 3 people-appetizers and entrees served within 30 minutes of us getting there. We were out of the restaurant in under an hour. Not a very enjoyable or relaxing experience.
WAY too noisy for conversation, although that did not seem to annoy other customers. With 2 very pleasant young individuals assigned to our table, the service was poor--did not even get around to refill water glasses. Love the food, but will not go back.
Great food and service. All our servers recommendations were perfect.
