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!
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 restaurant looks lovely for Christmas!
The food is always fresh and nicely prepared. We enjoyed very fresh haddock with broccoli and amazing potatoes, fish sandwich, flavorful pulled pork. Service was attentive and friendly. We’ll be back!

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!!!!
