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.

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.
Thank you!
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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.
