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.

Elegant established renouned first class restaurant was suprisingly quiet at lunch time but that did not affect the quality of the food (excellent) and the service (attentive and knowledgeable). Its fun to see the chefs preping. The menu is varied and evolves using seasonal and local sources. Always a positive.
I was suprised to find the wahroom extremely dusty. Obviouly it needs some attention.

We chose this restaurant for Mother's Day brunch. As usual, service, food and ambience were impeccable. We have dined here 4 times in the last year and it never fails to impress. Food is consistent and service is attentive. This is a wonderful choice for any occasion.

We had a lovely time for a special birthday dinner. The "interesting" horns lined up on the half wall were a bit distracting, but food was delightful and easily shared between the two of is. Local BC pinot noir was lovely with our meal. Service by our main wait person was excellent and others provided additional service whenever food was ready - altogether delightful.

A true test of a service-centric restaurant is their ability to deliver on quality and dining experience consistently. We came back and ordered the same breakfast entrees: mushrooms & eggs brioche benny and the crispy halibut brandade. It was just as lovely as the first time. Added bonus that the assortment of bread basket came fresh out of the oven. Our waiter was attentive to every detail and the friendly staff made our visit feel like it’s a special occasion even when it’s for brunch.

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.

A cozy, upscale restaurant coupled with a romantic ambiance. Each culinary dish was prepared with fresh and high quality ingredients. Every staff members were highly professional and attentive to details and ensure our dining experience was top notch. Highly recommend the beef tartare and butter poached lobster as starters. Both was highly savory and pleasing to the palate.

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.

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.

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
