West is our go to place whenever we are in Vancouver. We’re after perfection and it always delivers.
Server was fabulous, food top notch but sitting across from one another sucks... I almost always make it so I can sit beside my partner. My bad I forgot to ask, and the seating arrangement doesn’t really lend itself to this.
It had been some years since I’d been to West, but we recently moved into the neighbourhood and decided to give it a try. We were glad we did! We had a wonderful meal, with excellent service from a server who managed to make it not feel like a cookie cutter experience - how are the first few bites? What are your plans for the rest of the evening? Aargh!! 🙄 While not an inexpensive choice, it didn’t feel pretentious or stuffy to enjoy enjoy fine dining there.
We had lunch for 9 people for my mom's 87th birthday. The staff was very accomodating in many ways, i.e. Cara sp? about the reservations, the number was fluctuating. I really like the food. I had the salmon which was delicious. I'm pretty sure everyone was happy with their meal.
I would definitely come back and the restaurant, in my opinion, is really good for big groups, like my mom's birthday, at least at lunchtime when we were there. The location is very convenient.
We have eaten at West several times over the years, and generally found the food excellent and the service outstanding. It always felt like we had a team of wait staff devoted to our table. This time, our server seemed disinterested, and occasionally curt. We had a 12 year old with us, and we chose the 'theatre' menu, and most people were not buying alcohol, so perhaps he was expecting a poor tip. Not a good excuse for worse service than we get at White Spot.
What a delicious meal! Though I wish there was a bit more of it considering the portions and price. However, the service was impeccable from once you enter right through to when you leave. I will definitely return here for another occasion.
Very attentive wait staff and excellent quality food
Made my partners birthday extra special! The food was amazing and the our server was so friendly and sweet :)!
Absolutely excellent - food was delicious service was excellent - would definitely recommend for a special night out
Predictably , reassuringly enjoyable!
This restaurant has beautiful setting with fantastic services. Food was amazing! Restaurant locates outside of Vancouver downtown so parking on the road is cheap and it's only 5 minutes from downtown. I would go back there again!
With short notice, we were able to secure a table at West and enjoyed a great meal. The service was impeccable - no hovering, but always attentive. The recommended wine went perfectly with the food. With a group of picky eaters, I did not have a single complaint.
Had the special aged steak for two, it was great. Our Server was very friendly and we both enjoyed the night. Highly recommend.
The food and ambiance were excellent as always. The service was a little spotty in terms of timely wine pours and course deliveries.
The pork cheeks were a perfect portion size and delicious. The lamb duo arrived cooler than expected. The apple tart and chocolate soufflés were superb.
All in all, excellent.
The food here is always absolutely fantastic! Couple that with impeccable service and you have a very winning combination. Everything on the Chef's tasting menu was very memorable and provided a true west coast feel to it. Highly recommended!
Great food. Great service.We enjoyed the variety of choices. There was something for everybody. the 3 piece prix fixe was fantastic. The wine list was very extensive. Enjoyable all around. Convenient location with street parking.
Incredible meal, knowledgeable staff in regards to celiac disease options.
Lovely server with just the right amount of attention
We had a good table, away from the bar and serving area, making it quiet and comfortable. Our server was excellent. We were in no rush, and the server respected our wishes of talking and catching up, which still deciding on the menu. At no time did we feel pressured to hurry or to leave the restaurant. We found the menu very interesting, with some unusual items. Food was excellent, beautifully presented, although a little pricey.
Food was excellent! Love the birthday note left on the table for the celebrant !! Will definitely go back
Great experience. We were loved the food selection and the service was top notch.
I will definitely eat at West again. Our brunch was great and dessert was amazing!
It was a great experience. We had the 11-course dinner. A bit costly but highly recommended!
The service was excellent however the food was a little disappointing considering the prices. This is my fifth visit to West and I am not sure I will return. My salmon was slightly overcooked and luke warm and my date's lamb entree was a tiny portion considering the price and frankly the presentation was odd - carrots standing on end - it seemed almost childish.
Wish the lamb is 5 pieces instead of 3.
Great ambiance, and probably the best waiter I've had the experience in dealing with. He was extremely helpful, joking around, and attentive at our table. I wish I remembered his name, but seems like all the staff is pleasant to deal with.
Food was delicious, great quality, and the souffle at the end was the best.
Will definitely be coming back
20 years & always outstanding!
Love the new menu/chef
The lunch server/somm was super helpful.
The day bartender was great.
We will be back
The first time I went to West was few years ago for a pre-show luncheon with a group of 15+. Everyone raved about the food and left happy so major kudos to get their approval! The dessert at the time was creative, intricate work of art. On this occasion, we went for brunch and had the crispy Halibut brandade and mushroom & eggs with house smoked sausage. The menu offers variation of eggs Benedict and good options to stay Paleo or Keto. Savoured every bite without the carbs. Service was attentive and the staff always ask if you’re coming for special occasion :) Honestly, sometimes it’s simply to enjoy fine dine-out experience and West delivers!
A little too expensive for what you get
The waiter suggested a rib roast that was dry aged. This was a new special and it was very good. Great presentation and the taste was wonderful. We enjoyed the pace of the meal - slow - we never felt rushed. The service was subtle, no one was pushy
I love eating here pre-theatre. The cocktails were perfect, the food was delicious and the service was impeccable. They even reminded us when we were getting close to curtain time!
Every staff member we encountered made our night extremely warm and special. Thank you West!
Another excellent meal at the West Restaurant! We loved the Dine Out Vancouver menu. All courses were excellent.
West never disappoints. Creative dishes beautifully presented with excellent service. Dispite the Dine Out Vancouver full house, we were treated to attentive, unrushed service. A wonderful evening!
The food was fantastic. We had the Dine Out 2018 menu. I had the salmon appetizer, beef entree, and gateau dessert. Every individual part of every dish was great, and all worked very well together. Service was excellent - at no time did I need to look for a server, and they were there in seconds if we were out of water or bread, or even if we dropped a fork. They even came over and poured our wine the second I picked up the bottle. They'll take great care of you.
The only thing I'd change is the length of the tables. My partner and I sat at a 2-seat table and we both felt there was too much space between us for casual conversation, which is too much when the bar area near the entrance is crowded and noisy. I'd rather have a wider/shorter space than a longer/narrower one.
It was a lovely meal. Our server was prompt and attentive, each course was spaced out perfectly. There was an impressive cocktail menu and wine list. We will be back!
West is our gold standard. It never ceases to amaze! Thank you all!
We had heard about West since it opened and somehow we had not managed to eat there yet.
We were not disappointed by the quality of the food and service at West. The servers from front to back were excellent. Food was brought out en masse to our table of 6 so that everyone was served almost simultaneously, a nice touch!
The food itself was all very well prepared and visually stunning.
The restaurant is fairly bright and a bit tight for space but very nicely decorated in a somewhat moderne style.
Noise levels were definitely moderate but manageable.
West is a quality establishment that I will not hesitate to return to.
