Great service for our changing number of expected diners. Loved the cod rachel, perfectly fried, nice cheese on the poppy-seed bun. Best french fries I've had in years: fried to a crispy golden brown, excellent.

As usual, everything was delicious! It's the perfect place to go if you're not in the mood to cook for yourself or your family. You will always get a great, home cooked meal in a clean, cozy, relaxing atmosphere. Great attentive service, too. On the other hand, if you're looking for a good place to hang out with friends for drinks & dinner or just nibbles, the bar area is the perfect spot. Great for any type of casual night out with reasonable prices & great service. Our favorite neighborhood go to spot!

The waitress was friendly and efficient. My friend ordered the special prime rib cut and said it was delicious. I ordered a grilled chicken Caesar salad and it was fine. I was disappointed with the Creme Brûlée which was not smooth and creamy. The waitress took the dessert away and did not charge me for it. This is a child-friendly restaurant.

It was my fiancé’s Father’s birthday and it was our first tine there. Well over comes the owner who remembered that Jimmy Murad played for his team when it was a bar called Buck Mulligans many years ago. His birthday that we were celebrating was his 83rd! We felt special and the owner was super nice. Well the food is awesome! Steak tips and mashed with grilled asparagus were to die for! Onion rings extra thin and crispy! Just an amazing birthday celebration !!! This is now top on our favorite list! Will definitely be back again and again!

Server took our drink order about 5 minutes after we arrived and we didn’t take our food order until twenty five minute after we sat down. Our food came out quickly after ordering but it was a bit frustrating he wouldn’t take our order sooner. He was very pleasant and polite. Food was good, drinks were good, overall we had a pleasant experience

This is my favorite Sunday brunch spot. The food is always delicious and my husband and I really enjoy all the natural light coming from the big windows. You can hear everyone at your table talk to each other instead of speaking over loud music and the tables are too close together so it's incredibly comfortable.

Service is very good here each time. The food is almost always excellent even if it's fairly traditional items. Beer selection is great. Prices are a tad high but about average for a Boston bar/restaurant. Worth the $. Highly recommend

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!
Really!!
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.

West on Centre is always a reliable, consistently good restaurant with a warm ambience. It's always got a good crowd, but the acoustics are great, in that you can still hear and converse fairly easily. Wait staff is friendly and accommodating.

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.

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.
Sincerely, Beatrice
