    The food was great (maybe the burger was too cooked for mid-rare). Cocktails were enjoyable and they have good desserts (Dome or Bread pudding). The staff was attentive.

    Service was great, food good - we sat outside on a v. cold evening but the wait staff moved heaters to ensure we were warm. We rejected a bottle of wine after tasting it and the Manager was very accommodating.

    Went for a friend's biirthday; quite noisy with a large party behind us. Food was just "OK", needed more servers and food took quite some time coming out of the kitchen. Best were the bacon-wrapped dates and the chocolate dome dessert that was free for my friend's bday. She liked her salmon, my husband's steak was so-so, my "roasted" prawns (they were in sauce so don't know where the "roasted' was) needed more flavor, the sauce was bland. I had only been there once before for lunch many years ago, not sure I would return.

    The service at West Park Bistro is always friendly and attentive! We love the food, especially the cauliflower appetizer! The fireplace in the dining room adds to the quiet atmosphere making it romantic. A lot of effort has been made to create an outdoor dining space that is classy and feels intentional. You forget you are in the street. Have been many times and will continue.

    I just had my birthday dinner at West Park Bistro. It is an establishment my friends and I have frequented over the last few years for brunch, lunch, and dinner. The atmosphere of both the indoor and dining areas are lovely. The staff are attentive and very friendly. My birthday dinner was no exception. All eight of us thoroughly enjoyed the evening, from appetizers all the way to dessert. I would highly recommend the goat cheese as an appetizer. Smooth, with just a hint of sweetness. The octopus, calamari, and crab cakes are also great choices. As far as the entrees, you cannot go wrong. The desserts may not be extraordinary, but they are solid. The key lime pie was a hit as the tartness was just right. I also enjoyed the waffle crisp very much. And if you love coffee, they have an abundance of choices. But seriously, if you have not tried West Park Bistro, you really must!

    Fish taco appetizers were fine, but the "Potato Horseradish crusted Salmon" wasn't - a plate full of water in which the veggies were cooked and floated around, no species or anything on the veggies, and the "Potato" or Horseradish on Salmon was barely noticeable (and again no salt/pepper used on the fish).... they were very busy, so I hope it was because a mistake was made in the kitchen not because the chef came up with this recipe.
