West on Centre Ratings and Reviews
I’ve been to West a few times and always was happy with everything, but this time I was very disappointed.
I made reservations for New Year’s Eve.
We were a group of 4 with seating at 8:30.
We were seated right away and I loved how beautiful and festive it looked.
Our waitress seemed distracted, but took our drink order and left.
The menu had some specials that we thought looked good so when our waitress came back we ordered 2 shrimp and lobster tail specials and 2 sirloin specials.
She said Oh, we are out of the shrimp/lobster you’ll have to order something else.
So one of us said I’ll have the sirloin and the other ordered something else.
A minute later she’s back, we only have one sirloin special left. You’ll have to order something else!
How do you run out of specials at 8:30!
Who does the ordering there?
Also, no apologies or visit from a manager.
The food was fine, but all in all, it was a very disappointing evening.
The food was great, our server was the best. We were old friends meeting up after 15 years. The problem with this restaurant is no parking. Normally space is available across the street at the church, but there was meeting going on there and lot was full. And the noise level is very loud--I had two calls while I was there--I had to go outside to talk on the phone, and the second call I missed because I didn't hear the phone ring.
I had the lamb shank special and it was SO GOOD!!! It's been years since I've had lamb and it was even better the next night!! My husband had the fish and chips was was in ecstasy. He said the fish was so good and fresh, the batter was delicious. We had pumpkin cheesecake for dessert which was totally amazing. He started with a house salad which was enormous! Extraordinary service too.
I cam here some months ago for lunch with a group of friends and it was amazing them too. We'll be back!!!!
Service was excellent. I arrived for brunch 15 minutes early for my reservation. They made me feel very comfortable with coffee and a basket of muffins. My friends did join me in time to meet our reservation.
Nice atmosphere. A nice variety of options on the menu.
Very disappointed. My husband and daughter ordered the scallop dinner. Quite honestly, $27.00 for 6 dry, flavorless scallops on a bed of mashed potato with minimum trim is probably a 1,000 per cent profit.
My Agave salmon was dry and crusty. We spent $110.00 and feel it was a complete waste of money.
The server was efficient, we did not mention to him our disappointment.
It was okay. I got the baked haddock and it was very dry ( over cooked ). Believe it or not the waitress said baked fish comes that way. Somebody told my husband its a good place to go for burgers and pizza. I don't think we will be returning there for dinner.
I was very disappointed in the food. I ordered something very simple, a margarita pizza, and it was not good. It was loaded with sun-dried tomatoes which made it very bitter. I wouldn't recommend it, which is disappointing because it is so close to where I live.
I hadn't been to West On Centre in a few years. Pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. We started with an appetizer of calamari. Delicious sweet sauce and not heavily fried. Surprise was a few pieces of pineapple mixed in.
I had the pulled pork sandwich - seeded bun and a delicious slaw encompassed the pulled pork. Sweet potato fries and sweet pickles were the sides. Pulled pork was very moist topped by a delicious barbecue sauce.
No room for dessert.
Will be back much sooner than before!
