I have never left a review for any restaurant before. We found this spot before a canucks game. The food was amazing and the staff were excellent. Not a large menu but everything is made from scratch with love. I am definitely going back. Happy hour from 4-6 was a good deal

Service was very attentive, although it wasn't especially busy when we went. The food was delicious and served at the perfect times, leaving enough time to talk and enjoy the meal. The restaurant itself is a bit loud, but not so loud as to take much away from the whole experience. Would go again.

Mushroom risotto and chinois prawns were delicious! Scallops were slightly undercooked, and felt that the dish was a bit small portion wise for $32. Our waitress recommended the cookies for dessert, and they were amazing! Overall, happy with the experience.

We had reservations for 6 but one couple couldn’t make it on time so were able to change it last minute. Hosts were very accommodating and when they finally able to arrive they held the table beside us and we had another fabulous evening.

Great drink choices for happy hour. The halibut, which was almost out of season and highly recommended by our server, did not disappoint! Was prepared well and done to perfection! My husband had the roast chicken and was delicious apparently. Our server was very helpful with the menu and enjoyable to talk to. Look forward to dining here again.

Booked this place based on OpenTable ratings and so glad we did! We came on a Saturday night for dinner at 8:30pm and we were sat right away. We started with the fried calamari which was perfect and not too fried, then I had the salmon which was delicious and my husband really liked his short rib. As a side dish we had the 3 times cooked French fries which were Awesome!! The owner, Peter, came over and chatted with us and made sure everything was OK! I love a place where even the owner makes his rounds!! We will def be back next time we're visiting!

Went for lunch - overall OK - I would go back again. Royal burger was a bit dry. I wish I got the sable fish salad instead. The server was fantastic, but I thought the kitchen was really slow considering there were not many people in the restaurant. Lunch took 90 minutes.

We live in the neighborhood and were intent on eating steak. A survey of the Top 10 Steak restaurants listed West Oak as one, so we thought we would try it out. It was excellent. The steaks were prepared perfectly according to our order, the wine was good, and the service was fine. Given the fact that we live two blocks away, we certainly will be back in the future.

Visiting Vancouver and search Open Tables for a good place to eat dinner with friends, this place was great. The food was fantastic & in a very happening, vibrant area of Vancouver. I had salmon and a nice glass of rose. Can't recall what friends ate but we all agreed it meals were delicious - we will be back to Vancouver again next year and will definitely eat here again.

Went for appetizers and wine before 6pm & had a fabulous experience. Stayed for dinner after and both food and service were second to none. Would highly recommend this venue - absolutely perfect in every respect. First time for us in Vancouver and this was our first choice - really glad we made this one! Excellent & thank you all at West OAk for a truly memorable evening!

We went for happy hour before a concert at Rogers arena The sangria was excellent. For apples we loved the prawns. They weee fabulous. My husband found the beef tortillas hard to eat. Too big as one mouthful; couldn't easily take a bite or cut it. Flavour was good. I had the scallops and gnocchi. Excellent. Meal looks very small but it's rich and filling. My husband had the lamb shank and enjoyed it. We loved sitting on the outdoor patio. Indoors did look wonderful too. They have a huge round table indoors if you have a large group

I had eaten lunch here before so knew the food was good. This dinner was for a friend's 50th birthday (only turn 50 once!) so noted that on reservation as well as request for patio seating. Maitre d and waiter saw that both were attended to with complimentary dessert (a choice of 3 even!) so had the cookies - leftovers carried home easily which would not have been true of cheesecake.

The service is great!! Our waiter from Italy was fantastic and gave us great Service. The yaletown neighborhood and restaurant design on point. The menu has a lot to offer for everyone. It's a bit small options for the price but a lot of the menu items are also featured half off at happy hour daily from
3-6PM. I recommend this place overall.
