West Park Bistro has never failed to bring us a happy evening--tasty food/fine wine selection/wonderful service/out of doors was delightful. We had a "ladies" reunion--10 guests--and had such an enjoyable dinner and long overdue visit--Murat is an excellent host. Yes, we shall be getting together next month==and most likely at West Park Bistro. Thank you.

Love WPB. Their seabass is my favorite and their drinks are tasty. They have great service, nice seating with heaters, and good food. It is on the pricy side, but we enjoy going for date night.

West Park needs to improve their menu selection AND improve their food.
OR limit their selection and focus on making what they do offer into something special.
Service is always friendly and nice.

ok set-up outdoors during covid......attractive inside dining room when available.....hit or miss menu......good portions, but some poor quality items. avoid the crabcakes [all filler, no crab in sight], the toffee cake for desert was dry....very dry.....the ice cream on top helped. beet salad was large, but few beets and mostly greens[beets don't cost anything !]
excellent "airline" chicken[despite the name]......the 2 pastas tried were good.
to be fair, they may be having some covid restart issues
superior wine list with some resonably priced wines......$25 corkage

Save yourself some time and frustration and skip dining here entirely. One of the worst dining experiences I've ever had. They told is to seat ourselves, never gave us a menu, forgot to put in our order with the kitchen then charged my credit card for the tables bill behind us...my bill was $60...they charged me $320. Thank God I caught the mistake, they didn't even apologize and it took 20 minutes to cancel the charge. Go to TOWN down the street, the service and food are far superior.

West Park Bistro has built out a beautiful "parklet," with tables properly spaced out and with heaters to keep diners warm. It was lovely to have dinner in the outdoor space and enjoy the wonderful ambiance.
Drinks were well made. I got the berry mocktail and it was delicious.
Portions are on the larger side. The beets salad was large enough to share. My octopus appetizer/entree was mostly arugula, with the octopus buried at the bottom. Octopus was perfectly charred.
Salmon filet was overcooked but the sauce helped. It came with a hefty amount of steamed vegetables, which was great.
Service was friendly and prompt. Overall we enjoyed a nice time out.

Very nice ambiance on the deck. All dishes were very satisfying, very consistent - seafood linguine, skirt steak, halibut, mixed greens with Bosc pear. We enjoyed the chocolate cake too! This is always our go-to restaurant on Laurel St.
