For those keen to observe ‘behind the scenes’ action and experience West from a unique perspective, the two ‘chef's tables’ can be found directly adjacent to the presentation kitchen. One of the highlights of the dining room is a temperature-controlled wall of wine, and under it, the long cherry wood bar that gracefully anchors the conversation—where martinis and cocktails are composed of fresh herbs, juices and creative infusions.

Great food, fantastic service, great wine list! Easily accommodated our birthday party of 10 including one child. Highly recommend!!
Convenient location among many shops nearby. Food was good but cant tell it was excellent for the price performance. Nice presentation and may go again when you have your shopping finished.
Very attentive staff who gets a special call out for making our anniversary memorable. Little things count - seating, ambiance, card & dessert messages...
Fall prix fixe was a bonus and amazing surprise. Food was exquisite and, to be a bit of a cliche, was a feast for the eyes as well as the palate.
Food was overall good. The plate could have been a little warmer to keep the food warmer longer. Also the server didn't seem to know the menu well, and stumbled several times when we asked what was in the dish. But overall we had a good time.
It is very difficult to find a restaurant/chef who can do superb holiday meals. Today we went to West for Canadian Thanksgiving dinner and it was absolutely out of this world. Have been there many times for meals and tonight surpassed the best of the best.
my congrats to all concerned.
My girlfriends and I decided to come to West to try out the thanksgiving turkey dinner. Food tasted delicious. Service was great - the staff were super friendly and polite.
The food was delicious, matching a lovely presentation. We loved the baratta beet salad, the duck and the roasted chicken. Everything was presented in an inviting, colourful way. This has become one of our favourite restaurants in Vancouver.
on our way to the theatre and had a quick bite to eat it is great to have the theatre menu delicious menu first you were very attentive to this and yet every thing was attended to thank you so much yummy food and excellent service!!!
The waiter was not very personable nor attentive. Everyone in there seemed to be quite uninterested in setting the tone for a warm and friendly experience. We explained as we were bring seated that we would be attending the play at the Stanley and then when the time came to pay the waiter took a very long time to come and process out bill.
Then as we were leaving nit one if the staff said goodbye, thanked us for coming or made any eye contact. I found this to be very strange as it’s a small restaurant.
I won’t be returning.
I was excited about going to West having heard good things. Not sure if I have been to too many toptable restaurants in past month but while the food was good, it was not a wow (like blue water or il caminetto)
For the money ($400) I expected to have something that was memorable. The diver scallops were just ok but not an amazing combo of flavours (try andina in Portland). The lamb shank was tasty but lacked a sauce that would have made it stand out. My friends lingcod was good but again not memorable. Great wine list. The best surprise was the chocolate soufflé.
We had a nice table but found the ambiance and energy in the room lacking. It didn’t help that the bar tender decided to grind coffee for 2 or 3 minutes
Overall It was acceptable, but would have been disappointed if it was a special occasion.
The cocktails are amazing. The food was elegant and delicious food.
The food was excellent but you would think for the high prices it would include some kind of veggie at lest instead of nothing.....very disappointing that anything else besides your meat was extra at a very expensive price.... after sitting for twenty minutes our wine order was taken and we were having food first before our wine even got there....had to ask the waitress twice where our wine was.....
If the food was not excellent I would think twice about going back....
Thank you thank you Giovani and all who made my daughter and my night top notch 👌🏻 See you again!
We planned a date night for our 2nd anniversary, and it was so lovely. Elegant and attentive service, delicious food, energetic yet classy ambience. We enjoyed the evening very much and plan to return in the near future!
The cuisine and service at West restaurant were outstanding. The many accolades that West has received over the years are well deserved. The staff clearly takes great pride in delivering some of the best food in Vancouver, a city in which fine dining restaurants are abundant. Definitely worth a visit!
It has been awhile since we have been to this restaurant. Although much more casual than in the past it lacked in service. Bartender was excellent, however we had to constantly request service to order drinks, more water and extra long delay between appetizer and dinner being served. The sablefish was excellent but was served only warm. Other than the service value for money was very good.
Claudia our server from Germany was fantastic. We'd had her the last time possibly in the spring or summer. She seemed not hurried and very efficient and spent appropriate time "visiting" with us.
Everything was wonderful. Had the chefs table and we enjoyed ourselves and our dinner. See u soon
Pet peeve... price fix but then all the extra charges. I can understand it for “dine out”... but for $99 a person there shouldn’t be extra charges. Just add the Burrata.
We had an excellent meal and the service was outstanding.
All six of us were very impressed by the quality of the food and service. I highly recommend West.
When I arrived, there was a person at the hostess desk but she did not lookup from her computer and, consequently I stood for about 5 mins waiting for someone to acknowledge my arrival. Finally, a sever popped by and said a seated guest, my mother-in-law, asked him to invite me to her table. When I told my mothe- in-law about the awkward arrival, she said the same happened to her...with the same person at the front door
That could’ve set the tone for the evening, but, our server was good and the food was decent. My salmon was underdone and though my wife’s Gnudi was beautiful, the sauce tasted like canned sauce. The type with sugar and salt. Home made sauce, it was not !
I’d go back, because usually it’s good.
The person who was supposed to acknowledge our existence, but didn’t, should either be re trained or let go. Remind her that the customer is always more important than ANYTHING on a computer screen!
Perfect experience, as always. Love West. The food was beyond amazing. I had the halibut and they totally knocked it out of the park! The cocktails were so tasty and well made. The wine list is impressive. We capped off our meal with the new white chocolate cheesecake. Omg. Beyond epic.
Amazing meal with cheerful attentive service!
Last two dinners here have been the three course seasonal menu pre-theatre. Staff are excellent at timing the courses & getting us out without feeling rushed. My dietary restrictions were met with ease. Love this!
I had oysters as first course. Entree salmon course was lovely & extra vegetables in lieu of a gluten item on the plate was much appreciated. Dessert was a lovely plating of cheesecake, berries, almond biscuit --all divine.
Thank you again West for being in the Stanley Park Theatre neigbourhood: such a gem!
From the moment we drove up to the restaurant the West team made us feel special and important. The recommendations from the bar for unique beautiful cocktails, to him suggesting the Appetizer dish/accompaniment to start our dining experience(he was correct in all areas). The Manager was welcoming, attentive and ensured that our first visit was not going to be our last. Our waitress was exceptional, she was there and covered all our needs but you didn’t feel her around you in an obtrusive way. The menu was exquisite and very unique. The items we ordered were cooked to perfect and the flavours were on point. All in all by far one of the best dining experiences we have had in Vancouver.
The food at West was excellent. The flavours, the imagination and the presentation were all on the mark. There is nothing but positive feedback for the kitchen.
The issue was the service. We arrived early and stood at the bar, but neither of the two hostesses offered to take our coats. Then our server, Markus, had a real attitude which set a negative mood from the start. Two members of our group couldn't decide between the lamb or the sablefish, so decided to order both and share. They asked Markus to have the kitchen plate it that way and he couldn't hide his disdain, which remained for the rest of the evening.
The manager and assistant manager made the rounds looking at the tables and folding napkins when guests got up to use the bathroom. But two of us had empty glasses and we had to ask for more drinks as it hadn't dawned on anyone to offer. One member of our group asked for her water to be refilled, since no one had come by, and Markus obliged, but didn't fill the other half-empty glass on the table. Come on, you're already there with the water and you don't think to do the whole table? You even get that level of service at White Spot!
Overall, there was a real lack of any attention to detail on the front-of-house side. They keep up appearances well, but many of the details you'd expect at this calibre of restaurant - the kind of details they probably pride themselves on - were blatantly missing.
Lattés were luke warm. Food was ok. Server was professional. Not spectacular but fine for a birthday brunch.
Worst onion soup I have ever had. A lot of sugar in the soup.
Great food and service, been to West many times and will go again.
The service the entire evening was impeccable. The staff is courteous, professional, subtle and the best part they are almost invisible but always there if you need them. We both had fish and the halibut and sablefish were cooked to perfection. The little extras really added up. The small appetizer and desserts they offer for free are perfect.
We will definitely go again. It’s by far one of our favourite restaurants in Vancouver.
Must have the lobster starter! It captures the essence of lobster from ara to flavor. Skip the tuna crudo.
Don’t order any steak. Their knives are not sharp, so it takes a lot of effort to cut. Their tables have a slippery surface and their plates slide around the table excessively, so eating a steak will be ridiculously difficult and embarrassing. Just stick to fish.
I have lived in Vancouver since 1987 and love really good food. Our meal at West was superb in every way. Highly recommended!
I appreciate the consistency of this restaurant. I have been here multiple times and I never had a bad meal here. Service is always top notched. Our friends and I had the summer prix fixe menu and everything was delicious!
Could not ask for any better service than the one we had. It never disappoints!
Great restaurant with excellent service. The cocktail menu is very good, and we enjoyed the cocktails that we tried.
We were celebrating a visiting old friend after not seeing her for 11 years. This was the perfect place to eat good food, drink good wine, and have a noise level suitable for a conversation that didn't involve shouting across the table. Have eaten here before and enjoyed it and this occasion was no exception. Would definitely eat here again and highly recommend too.
Amazing service great food and ambience. Was a tad bit cold in the restaurant but the experience was great
Our 4th trip to West did not disappoint. Great food, wine selection and serving staff who really care about your 'first bite' We brought guests with us from the UK who frequently follow Michelin Star rated restaurants and they were suitably impressed. Thanks again to all at West.
