    Delicious! Beautiful location! Would have given it five stars however, our reservations were for 6pm and we were not seated until 6:40pm.

    We booked Westward expecting to have a special experience for my first Mother’s Day. We were ignored by our server and found the menu to be pricey and several items just okay. Oysters and burger were great but the side of bacon was inedible and dill dip just meh. We had empty glasses for about 15 minutes when our server never came by or asked if we’d like more drinks. The high bill felt painfully inappropriate for the quality of our experience. Sadly won’t be back until major changes happen here. Beautiful location and has so much potential but disappointing with current leadership / operations.

    This place is beautiful. The food was fine, but exceedingly overpriced. Brunch per person is going to run you about $100.

    The location is stunning but our server was so rude and dismissive. We were planning on staying for lunch but left after 1 drink and a few oysters because she was so rude it was ruining our experience.

    Great spot to eat as the sun goes down with an awesome view. Food is delicious, service quick and efficient, and the drinks are great. Had a selection of oysters - great to taste side by side. Ribs and clams were very flavourful with a side of asparagus.

    We arrived for our reservation and waited some time for host. We were met by a sullen, pouting, generally unhappy host who invited the 5 of us to stand at a small table while our table was prepared. No smile, no drinks offered. ( obviously he had never heard my mother comment on the role of a good host/hostess). Eventually made our table and he asked what kind of water we wanted. Felt vibes of locals only meets employees vs. guests. Definitely welcoming. Waited s long time for waitress to arrive. She presented the menu without passion and appeared tired and put out. She was effectively shorn of personality either for the evening or for life I have no way to know as I have just the one data point ). Food was good in spite of exit person showing little enthusiasm. Setting beautiful. Had a nice evening as we were able to joke about the vibe. But really a little embarrassed by the treatment of our out of town guests. Getting used to post COVID wait staff who feel little inclined to actually serve the customer but then expect s 25 % tip and then stand around making it apparent that you are making them stay late. Could go on but I’ll end there.

    Quality food, great kale salad for 2. Menu is minimalist. More choices would be nice.
