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.
We have a great night with friends, good sevice and good food, especially the appetizers and desserts.
Lovely evening at west for dine out. Great food, cocktails and service. I’ve never had a bad experiences here. Definitely recommend!
West is in "our" neighbourhood so we tried it out with neighbours. It makes a difference that one can walk to a restaurant, have some wine, and then walk home. The service at the door was very pleasant and our young server was very nice and when not sure about a dish, checked with the kitchen staff. The rest of the staff were also helpful.
The meal was well presented and tasted even better. Funnily enough, all four of us ordered flat iron steak as it was an uncommon cut to us. It was very nice and the mushroom velouté was really tasty. Small desserts though for someone who does have a sweet tooth! The atmosphere that evening was quiet enough that the four of us could converse and not have to shout or run out to purchase a hearing aid. The whole meal and evening, in fact, was very nice and we shall return !! - John's Wife.
I think WEST has lost its lustre and has fallen behind several similar establishments in the city. Service was very good but the food disappointed.
Went for dine out luncheon with friends. We all ordered the fish as our entree. Was surprised to see the inconsistency in the portion size of the fish. Interesting how the restaurant would not think this would go unnoticed. We also felt server was rushing us to pay even though the restaurant was not full.
I have been going to West for the past 14 years since I moved from Toronto. Sometimes often and yesterday after a long time.
The best is the consistency of the food, quality, service and feeling of being in a restaurant that caters to its customers.
Thank you to all!
Even with the Dine out Vancouver menu, West consistently hits it out of the park. Their standards never slip, it is always a class act. Kudos, West!
I hadn’t been to West for a number of years and it was good to see that the quality of the food remains excellent and the service was fantastic!
It was my mother’s birthday and Dine Out Vancouver. The ambiance was amazing and the food and service were outstanding. I really appreciated the fact that we were not rushed. My mother had a wonderful birthday and we both had a fabulous evening. I highly recommend West for any occasion. Thank you!!!
It was all ok. Food was good. The fish was spongy so they took it back and gave me the risotto which was excellent. My wife loved her steak. Drinks at the bar were also excellent. At the end of the meal they forgot to add my drinks to the bill. I told the waiter. He returned and said the bar was too busy so the drinks were on the house. I was happy and tipped well in gratitude. A couple of days later both the food bill and the drink bill were on my credit card statement. I write the restaurant but I still haven’t heard back. Not too impressed with that.
It is a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. I enjoyed the meal very much and the service was great. I can't afford to dine here a lot, but special occasions are great and I will recommend it to friends who want to go somewhere special.
We were first time Dine Out- ers but were treated with kindness on a very busy Fri night. The service was excellent and every bite of our three courses was delicious and beautiful to behold. I am not impressed by reviews of ‘hot’ restaurants in Van but West deserves theirs. Will be back!
Lovely, contemporary restaurant. Excellent food and service and love the mix of hip decor with a wooden wall of wine. Service was outstanding. Oysters were outstanding. Wasn't thrilled with the glaze on my fish but the fish was done to perfection and accompanying sides were delicious. Will definitely be going back!
Always have an excellent meal at West. There have been some changes in the kitchen in terms of executive chef and sous chef but so far the new team has put out consistently delicious dishes! Had the dine out lunch menu with the risotto and the hazelnut cake. Great as always
