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.

This is the third time I have been here. The outdoor dining is great warm heaters and pretty lights and distanced seating. The food is great and the service is excellent.

We sat there for 2+ hours before they cleared our dirty plates, and only did so when my friend went to the bathroom and asked them to do so. After they brought our entrees no one came by to see if we wanted any other food or drinks? I asked for my sauce on the side but it was all over the entree? It took so long for it to arrive I didn't send it back and just ate it. They need to step up their game if they want to stay in business with all the competitive restaurants within a 2 block radius.

The food we ordered was very good and I would recommend - goat cheese crostini, bacon wrapped dates, pasta fiorno. However, we got two wrong items - 1) I ordered the aelderfashioned and got a usual old fashioned. 2) instead of the pasta fiorno they brought out a completely different pasta. They did take it back and bring me the right dish but at this point my wife's dish was already on the table. Also, we came here to celebrate my birthday (which I mentioned on my reservation). While I dont expect anything for this, usually 5 star places will recommend dessert or not charge for it (which I'm happy to add to the tip if they don't charge). So overall, it was a good experience but could have been great had the staff paid attention to detail.

I love going here because besides the excellent food and service they built a deck off the sidewalk with walls and it feels like Indoor dining. Great job making something good out of something bad.

Apps were pretty good. Especially the bacon wrapped dates. Had the linguine as my entree. Sauce was good but it was swimming in it. Also the scallops were very tough.

The good at West Park Bistro always delivers. It has plenty of options for everyone and it’s all well cooked. I had the fillet and it was perfectly cooked, juicy and well seasoned. During covid, they have set up a lovely outdoor dining area that is a great combination of open air, and closed in space. I highly recommend it as you will feel safe in their outdoor deck area. But make reservations because, covid restrictions or not, this place is busy!

Everyone was welcoming and so pleasant, which is refreshing given the circumstances we are facing. It was a very nice break from the endless months being stuck indoors. Very thankful that WPB has been able to remain open.

Shared a good meal on a Saturday night. Started off with the Organic Greens, good but not enough dressing. Then we had the Goat's Cheese with Pistachio, outstanding! The contrast created by the caramelized onion made this plate the star of the evening. We followed -up with the Cheese Plate that was OK, and finally the Prawns, very imaginatively prepared with an aroma of orange.
I don't usually give five stars but two of the four plates were really very well prepared.

Didn't have dessert.

The wine choices were limited but the bubbly was plentiful, the California Mumm was quite good.

My all time favorite restaurant with amazing service and food We felt so safe eating here as they are following all the CDC guidelines . The tables were at least 6 feet apart, all the staff were wearing appropriate protection gear and they were constantly wiping everything down . The staff always go above and beyond to provide a wonderful dining experience. Best place to eat on the peninsula !

We have enjoyed numerous dinners over the last few years but the food this time was fair at best. We order the lamb pasta which was very tough and returned it for gnocchi pasta.It was very fresh but the light cheese sauce was sweet.Eek.. We also had the skirt steak which was ok but not memorable. I think they also have a limited menu understandably due to the virus.Service outside was good.
We will try again someday especially living locally.
