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.

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

Manager and servers were very pleasant, food was great, not much of a wait for your meals. Plus the Manager gave us sample of a appetizer that was a new feature. The overall experience was awesome. Highly recommend especially if you’re celebrating something special!

Ps: Just arrived the maximum 10 mins before your reservation or else you’ll have to sit at the bar and wait until it’s your time.

My daughter and I wanted to do brunch before attending the Skating Gala at UBC. The restaurant is ideally located. It was our first visit and it didn’t disappoint...our brunch was delicious and the staff were kind and so very accommodating. The coffee and cappuccino were great! Love the open kitchen and seeing the chefs in action.

We look forward to a return visit. Thank you for a lovely brunch!
