Recognized as the ‘jewel in Vancouver's culinary crown’, West's outstanding contemporary regional cuisine and seamless service has earned much critical acclaim. Pristine seasonal ingredients are sourced to deliver superbly conceived dishes offering modern interpretations of classics.
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.
Please note: online reservations are currently available for parties up to 10 guests.
My friend and I went for lunch and she had the omelette and I had the burger. Everything was excellent again. We had s lovely window seat and we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you
We always try for the chefs table as it is my favourite. We had the blue goose rib eye for two and it was fantastic. Everything we had was amazing, service excellent as always. I am actually coming for lunch this Thursday.
Thank you for a lovely anniversary dinner! Our food was very good and the service was pleasant and well timed. We will be back!
Innovative dishes. We had brunch that everyone enjoyed thoroughly.
Friend’s birthday. Note and chocolates were a nice touch.
quite a nice place for a dinner date. The food was great and the service was attentive. will return for sure
Truly outstanding. I had the best omelet I had ever tasted, and the service, was excellent. West keeps delivering year after year.
These rating things are getting to be annoying. Just when you think it’s quick there are 102 questions. This is the last rating I’ll be doing for any company!
We had our elderly parents in tow
They did a beautiful job with food and service
Always dependable West- so good!
Great ambience and service. The food is very good and the wine list is impressive. Slightly on the expensive side but given the overall value it is worth it.
Celebrated our 10 year anniversary here, started off with butter poached lobster and scallops which were both phenomenal in taste however the portion of lobster was very stingy 1 tiny morsel each. Main course was the $120 blue goose 26 oz ribeye steak we ordered it medium rare, it was red in the middle as it should be however none of the fat had been rendered whatsoever, not one to complain but I could have done a better job cooking the steak myself at home. Our desert was delicious(chocolate fondant bar), service was great, great restaraunt but for the price we paid, over $440 they definitely missed the mark on the steak and gave wayyy to small a portion of lobster for price you pay.
Great experience, started with high quality cocktails at bar, great service, outstanding food quality and overall very nice ambience.
Impeccable service. Outstanding food. Excited to be back
The service at the restaurant was impeccable. Amazing cocktails and good food.
Wonderful place to go for a special dinner. The service was excellent and gracious. Fabulous cuisine and my meal was awesome
They have a stunning starter that features squid ink pasta and mussels
The entire meal from petite bouches to main course was such a delight.
Highly recommend West
Just had one of the best meals and evening at West Restaurant. Service was over the top outstanding, and food was excellent. Over and above the food though, was the service, absolutely wonderful.
Definitely top marks. Mario
I have only dined here previously over lunch and enjoyed it very much so thought I would try dinner. Had a drink at the bar before and was served by an excellent bartender on only her second shift. She introduced me to an elaborate cocktail which I am going to have with breakfast one of these days. The service at our table was superb and our waitress excellent and informative about everything on the menu. Great atmosphere - almost forgot I was in Vancouver!
Food was fantastic. Service was good but could have been slightly better. At one point I had an empty glass of wine and water and my wife's wine glass was empty too. I almost drank my entire wife's glass of water before they were filled again.
Great food, great service.
Dinner at West is like a jazz quartet: distinct pieces that all come together to create something smooth, energizing, and worth paying attention to. The food is a visual as well as a gustatory experience, the servers are knowledgeable and personable, the wine list is worth reading on its own, and the overall atmosphere is comfortably elegant. Sitting at the bar is where patrons can watch mixology magic occur as the bartenders/ mixologists concoct one of the signature cocktails from the full wall of wine, spirit, and flavoring options. West is a restaurant not to missed when visiting Vancouver.
This is a great restaurant with wonderful service. Just don't go for brunch. Food is sub par for the money you'll pay. Go for dinner only.
Excellent service and attention.
My order was not made as I had requested. I asked that the hollandaise sauce be served on the side, and that my eggs be medium well done. The sauce was on the eggs, and the eggs were cooked very soft. But other than that, we enjoyed our lunch.
Great privilege to be seated beside the kitchen, but boy it’s noisy if you want to have a conversation!!
It's been several years since our last visit. Lunch for 4 was pretty good. Service was attentive and the food was well prepared. We would definitely return.
Best Dine Out Vancouver experience this year!
This was the 2nd time that I dined with my families here. The service and food were excellent even though this was the DOVF. I will bring more friends to here next times definitely.
We love dining at West. The service, food, ambience and value for the high quality are great. We are never disappointed. It is a favourite for our family. It is child friendly though there are not many children there. The staff go out of the way for the children and make them feel special.
Overall great experience! The service was pleasant. The food was outstanding! The dine out menu had everything we could have wanted. The waiting area wasn't ideal but once we were seated, it made up for the awkward waiting area. The restaurant was a little chilly/ cold for me, but for a man in a jacket I'm sure it would be comfortable.
Made a reservation for 3 for dine out one night with my sister and mom. My sister checked us in using my name and sat down before my mom and I arrived. After about 20 mins, they called me cell asking if I was still coming for my reservation. It was an awkward interaction with no explanation. Later, I think the manager came over and joked about the call, but it wasn't amusing. The food was just ok. Maybe because it was dine out,.. but isn't the point of dine out for getting people to come back?
This is a high class restaurant with excellent food and service. Situated in the shopping area of South Granville and close to a theatre, it is in a good spot.
Parking is a bit of a problem and $15 plus 15% tax is a bit rich for a simple cocktail.
To their credit, West did not dumb down their menu for Dine Out. All three courses were up to their high standards. The only drawback to the experience is the ambient noise--very hard to have a good conversation with friends over dinner.
EXCEPTIONAL!!! I'd give 6 stars if it was an option! By far one of the best dine out experience! :) Food was amazing!! Presentation and flavors were spot on!! #foodporn and portion was just right. Service was excellent, especially given it's during DOVF. We sat at the "chef table", loved watching how Chef Bobby Milheron, and the entire front and back of the house was working so well together as a team. It was full house, but they still managed to keep it light and stress-free for themselves and the guests. Special shout out to the manager, he gave us a memorable and wonderful evening. Highly recommend, definitely worth coming back to try their regular menus!
Did the Dineout pre-theatre dinner. Our waitress was wonderful & had us out in a timely fashion. I was a tad disappointed as I wasn’t able to have any of the desserts on offer . Even the panacotta had gluten in it: really! Sorbets were nice though: lovely, intense flavours . Pork cheeks were excellent, lean & melted in your mouth. Fargo was substituted with more veggies which were a very nice variety on my plate. The tuna sashimi appetizer was lovely & my friends’d salad was generously sized & delicious ! This is a go- to spot on our theatre nights. Please chefs be creative & make easy substitutions for gluten. I do it at home & I’m no expert . Show us your talents!
At West u r never disappointed
Went for the dineout menu. The lunch was exactly the same as the dinner one but $10 less, so we went during the lunch hours. Overall, everything was great, my only problem was with the caramelized onion broth. It was way too rich for me that I couldn’t finish it. Other than that, the pork cheek was so good.
We went to try their Dine Out Vancouver 2019 menu. I loved the outside entrance, it was very clean/minimalistic and inviting. The host greeted us, took our coats, seated us and our server promptly followed with drink offers. The food was alright, nothing overwhelmingly good but presentation of the dishes was nice. I had really high expectations for the restaurant but it did not wow me in terms of their food. The service on the other hand was amazing. If our server was busy, the other servers or restaurant manager would come clear the table or serve the next course. It was a bit loud in the restaurant but the atmosphere was warm and their bar was pretty. Overall, although the food was mediocre, the service was just amazing and made the experience worth it. I would love to go back to try their regular menu.
We dined with Dine Out Vancouver for my mom’s 70th birthday. Our food was really outstanding. The ling cod just melted in your mouth. I mentioned the birthday occasion in the reservation, not really expecting any special treatment. We arrived to find a birthday card waiting for her and her dessert course was served with Happy Birthday written in chocolate on her plate. Thank you West for making her birthday dinner extra special. :)
