We made reservations for Valentines Day and we were promptly greeted and seated right away. Staff is friendly and attentive. I had surf and turf plate and it was very delicious. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the sauce that accompanied it was so creamy and delicious. My husband loved his pork chops. The serving size of each plate was very generous and we ended taking the leftovers. The lobster bisque is a must! It was so good and had a good amount of lobster meat in it. Definitely will be coming back here!

Great dining experience after visiting some local wineries in Gilroy. This was our second time eating dinner here and both times, everything was terrific! The flat iron steak was tender and cooked to order. The lobster bisque was tasty. Our friends enjoyed the chicken and salmon. Definitely a repeat visit the next time we are in Gilroy!

Food was very good and so was our waiter. We had to ask for bread several times and then after the 4th time we got it. Other than that, it was very good and we'd go back.

The food is excellent but we waited 45 minutes even though we made a reservation for two. The Manager got us a free drink for the long wait so that was nice but the wait was too long.

Westside Grill has a good variety of options but I always have the prawns pomodoro. Delicious and a very good value—$20 and that includes a nice salad or soup. Enough for leftovers for the next day. No wonder it’s always busy. A nice Grgich Chardonnay was also a great value at $54 which isn’t much more than at a grocery store.

As usual, service and food was excellent. I’ve commented previously quite a few times, since we’re regulars, but I just wanted to mention that one of the specials on this visit was Seafood Mac-n-Cheese. It was a hearty portion and excellent. Loaded with bay shrimp and scallops. I hope they offer this again, as this is the first time I’ve seen it on the menu in 3-4 years.

We were a party of 4 on New Years eve (early reservation). Service was slow - but, to be expected with large crowd. Normally, service is fast and efficient. Shrimp Pasta Pomodoro was excellent. Always a good meal at West side

Great local restaurant. Some of my favorite dishes are the Crab Melt, BLTA sandwich & the Halibut with fingerling potatoes. I love their dinner salads as well. If you can, sit in Heidi’s section. She is super sweet & accomodating.

My husband and two year old went to have dinner the day before Christmas Eve. Staff was very friendly and seated us right away. My son loves his flat bread cheese pizza and my husband had their swordfish special which he said was very good. I enjoyed my surf and turf and my rib eye was cooked to perfection. Our waiter was very nice and attentive. We had a great experience and will be eating here again.

Lots of Xmas celebrations so was noisy. Was asked if they could take 1/2 our table to accommodate other guests and we had absolutely no room because a large table was next to us with all their presents. Is all I ordered was a salad and it had a very funny taste to it, was not good at all, no bread. Was very disappointed.Doubt if I’ll be back.

This was our first meal at West Side Grill. We had a reservation and still had to wait. The wait was well worth it! The staff were very courteous and apologized for the wait. The wait-person came to our table immediately and always kept tabs on us. The four of us had a variety of dishes and all were very good. The cook staff can make a fine al dente pasta and sandwiches equally well. The staff did not hurry us to finish. Interestingly, it was very busy at 6:30, however by 8:00 the restaurant was nearly empty! I would highly recommend the West Side Grill.

I so appreciate this restaurant as there are very few in Gilroy. My rating was based on a few things. Granted it was very busy, so 20 minutes to have our drink order taken was ok, but 35 minutes later to get them? There were only 3 of us, not 10. Then our food order was placed and we all had an app or soup and each had an entree. I ordered the lettuce wraps as my app ( they are FANTASTIC, and I order them every time I am there) and every single piece of butter lettuce had a sizable year right in the middle. If you’ve ever eaten lettuce wraps you will know you almost need gloves in order to eat them when there’s a tear in the lettuce especially in the middle and I was substantial size! I tried to get our waitresses or a bus boys attention for about five minutes and finally just gave up took off my jewelry and ate them needless to say it was a giant mess delicious but a giant mess!
Then not two minutes after our plates were cleared my entrée is served no one else’s just mine. If you minutes later are we just walked by and she said is this all that came out I said yes about five minutes ago and she said oh let me go check so she went and checked and then the other two entrées came out and she came back and said the kitchen was just trying to you know stay on top of things. I have no idea what that meant. Anyway I thought the food was really really good I should’ve given it a higher rating I think this other stuff just kind of put a damper on things.

The last thing and one that is the most disappointing to me is that they quit using linen table class in the evening and Well I do understand it’s most likely a cost curbing issue it took it to a whole Nother level and especially when you see a table getting wiped off with a with a rag/cloth that you don’t know what else it’s been used on and have your silverware laying on a table now that’s sorry that’s just not clean. .

We like to go to West Side Grill for special occasions, and I can’t ever remember having a bad meal. Thanksgiving was no exception. The only issue this time was slow service and an inattentive waitress. We weren’t in any rush, and enjoyed the company, but it seemed unusually long. No matter, it certainly won’t stop us from going back. The turkey dinner was delicious!
