About West Restaurant

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.

Really amazing experience. The food is top quality ingredients presented beautifully. The price definitely matches the experience though...2 people chef tasting menu with tip was over 400.00 dollars. Definitely something we would do again....in another couple years. The service was top shelf as well, never felt ignored by the staff....and all are attentive to your needs, even if they aren't your specific server.

Finally made it to West for a girls night and it was worth the wait. It's fancy without feeling stuffy and, though it was still somewhat loud, it was only because of conversation and not because they were piping in loud music. I hate when you have to shout to talk with your dinner companions. The food was beautiful and delicious and the drink selection was one of the biggest I've ever seen. I would definitely go back for the lamb entree, and the cauliflower amuse bouche with celery was delicious. Highly recommended.

We had an excellent experience with the food, wine, and service at West, as we always do at Top Table group’s restaurants. Shane, our server, was particularly exceptional. He was impressively knowledgeable about the menu items we picked, every kind of wine on the list, and how these paired together. His attention to the details far surpassed what is expected of even the best servers, and made for a wonderful evening for me and my date. Although there was a mixup with our order, he handled it with ease and make our experience all the better by giving us each a complementary glass of his favourite champagne. Thank you Shane for your hospitality!

West has always been our goto restaurant when attending the theatre, this past visit (Nov 2017) was surprising as the service was very disappointing. The dinning room was at 60% capacity but for some reason the staff, including the kitchen could not seem to pull it together. We will return in hopes that management can address these issue and return to the five star we remember it as.

I had previously been to West on several occasions for dinner both intimate and with business groups. I was excited to share with an out of town friend over lunch. there were not as many lunch time menu items that appealed to us. we had a burger and an omelette both were good but similar to what we would find at many downtown hotel restaurants which I found disappointing. I also thought that wine by the glass was outrageously priced. In the future I would only return for dinner and will caution acquaintances that might be interested in lunch here if they are not on a business or power lunch.

We have been to West only 3 times but each experience has been wonderful. The only complaint is that we have sat at the same table (coincidentally!) and it is the one at the end of the bar by the kitchen and there has always been a draft and we have always been chilled. Other than that, we will definitely come back, especially for our family's special occasions, and will make sure to ask that we are not seated at that specific table. Thank you.

Second visit here was as good as the first one. Great atmosphere, great service and great food. Very impressive wine menu as well. Brought a friend for a birthday celebration and the restaurant even left a birthday card before we arrived at our table.
Plated the birthday cake(s) I brought. Needless to say we enjoyed the hospitality very much👍🏻

We enjoyed a family Thanksgiving lunch at West on the holiday Monday. We were lucky that the restaurant was available and the options on the lunch 3 course combination were great! The delicious beet risotto could not have been more vibrant in appearance! The lamb meatballs were flavorful. The plum cake was a special combination including lemon whipped cream. I hope our next visit to West can be for the tasting menu options available at dinner including seafood, meat or vegetarian choices.

Went here for Thanksgiving dinner. We chose the tasting menu and the food was great ! Service was also excellent except the waiter charged us for 3 bottles of sparkling water. We only ordered the one bottle but he kept filling our glasses and didn’t ask beforehand if we wanted to order additional bottles. Bit of a shocker when the bill came.

West’s Tasting Menu is our go-to for special occasions. They never disappoint. The food is delicious, they are extremely accommodating with my Celiac/ gluten free diet, and the drinks are fantastic. I love that the tasting options are divided into land, sea or vegetarian, so you can get a menu made up of exactly what you like to eat. The wine pairings are always spot on, and just the right size to be enjoyable but not leave you reeling ;).
