Went to West Oak for the first time and was very pleased with the ambience, food, and service. Heard only positive things about the place so I decided to go their for my birthday. Had the best time ever and had the best server ever! :) Will definitely be returning here and will recommend this place to everyone!

Disappointing eating at West Oak for Valentines Day. We requested the Pasta with no Spice, we were told there won’t be any heat. First few bites in it was very obviously it was very Spicey. Upon telling our Waitress it is too spicy, she merely took the plate of food and walked away without asking if we wanted anything else or another option, or remake the Pasta with no Spice, or even an apology for the issue.

My best friend and I enjoyed the Dine Out menu from 2017 that we had to come back for 2018. As it was last year, West Oak did not disappoint. The meal was outstanding and the server was enthusiastic. The only thing was that I would say is that it's a little dark. Aside from that, the overall experience was really great. I would certainly recommend West Oak to friends and family.

Everything here was amazing! We came during Dine Out, and ordered some appies off the Happy Hour menu. I ordered off the regular menu, and had the mussels and the seafood linguine. The mussels were delicious! The only comment is the noise level. At one point the music was turned up, and it was too loud to hear each other talk. Then they turned the music down but it was still too loud. Other than the noise, I would definitely come back here again, since the food and service were great.

A group of 6 of us went for the first time during dine out and everyone's meals were fantastic! I had the pork chop and it was PERFECTLY Cooked and a few other in my group had the salmon and again said it was cooked perfectly.

Cute place and very much a yaletown vibe like you would expect. I went with a group of friends but I think this would also be a great place for a date.

Seeing as it is December, we had a lot of trouble getting our cab to arrive on time. We were inevitably late for our reservation but sincerely grateful to the restaurant for holding our table for us. We enjoyed a lovely dinner at West Oak. Our server, Christopher, was friendly and hilarious and made a very pleasant dining experience. The decor was festive and the vibe was fun.

It was definitely a date night win and we will be back!

Lovely service, great food...but the staff had a wine tasting happening in the restaurant as well so it was very distracting. The sommelier was rather loud and we kept over hearing that conversation.

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.
