My favorite restaurant in Seattle. A must for when we have guests in town. It's a gorgeous restaurant on the water without being touristy. Great food, drinks and oysters.
Best waitress, Emily!! and the food and setting were really wonderful!
Service and food were amazing. So much better since Sea Creatures restaurant group purchased it. Happy to have such good food in a great setting.
We loved our food it was so good.
Westward’s view can’t be beat. The food and service are great. Good happy hour menu, too.
This is my favorite restaurant for oysters and craft cocktails.
Salmon was over cooked and over priced. Service was slow.
Amazing food, cocktails not the best, but spectacular service. Loved it!
Always love Westward. Great service and delicious food. Not to mention the amazing view.
Nice place but waiters continually interrupt conversations. Please coach the staff on this.
I wanted to send out a special thank you for the Westward team. The team was so accommodating and helpful even when some of our plans changed. The venue is beautiful with a unique vibe that we all loved. Our food and service was fantastic and we would recommend it to all of our family and colleagues.
Food tasted great but service was unprofessional and inexperienced, although sincere. Absolutely freezing. Everyone had coats on inside the restaurant. Trying to promote some sort of indoor-outdoor vibe in 40 degree weather, with high prices and fine food. I got my parka out of my car, and during dinner accidentally knocked several dishes from the table with my awkward puffy sleeves.
One of my best meals in Seattle and plate of mixed oysters to share excellent . Great service, sort of lumberjack chic !
The food was delicious, the ambiance was great. We had a fantastic waitress. It was just that the servings were so small. We ordered the halibut, the chicken, and the risotto. We ended up ordering sides to supplement because three entrees was not enough food.
Westward is one of my favorite restaurants in Seattle. The good news is that it's small and intimate and just feels special - a little gem. The bad news is that it's small and intimate so it can be hard to get in and even harder to get a seat with a view - but when you do, wow! Follow any recommendations from the staff - they know what they're talking about!
Great place. The view is great. The food is fantastic. We had oysters. A different variety and they were all great. Afterwards my wife had the octopus salad which was delicious and I got the halibut. The halibut was amazing. Highly recommend it. Only down side was the drinks. Whiskey drinks were little drink and lots of ice. Other than that everything was great and the staff and service was great as well
I wish I liked this place more.
Unfortunately, I felt both a little nickel and dimed, with entrees being smaller and more expensive than they seem they should. Oysters were also expensive, wine and beer too.
But I don’t expect any real changes, my experience wasn’t bad enough to shock anyone into making changes at the restaurant or reupholster the flaking off pleather chairs. Opulence fronted, but not appropriately backed up with the quality charged for.
Good food but overpriced. Most tables inside have no view. Noisy, easy parking, popular place; our waiter rushed us through the meal. Fun for 1 visit but I won’t go back.
Great place to go for the views and the food, which blends local fresh ingredients. Lots of small plates, so sharing is great. Happy hour has great value (especially for the tasty oysters).
Don’t go for an early dinner unless you are 30-ish, drink a lot and have a very loud voice. The food, a pork chop and halibut was OK, lacked sides , ( eg: no dinner salad to be found) and the tab for two ran to $100 w/tip. Only one beer!
We brought out of town guests and absolutely loved the outside setting. It was a perfect NW evening. The only downside was the music was too loud to be able to enjoy a conversation without having to shout or yell into each other’s ear. The Food was amazing!!
Great setting - but food was just average compared to what we can expect in Seattle.
Beautiful day on the water! At first, menu seemed unusual- took us a little out of our comfort zone- but everything was excellent. Everyone agreed, we will be back.
Excellent meal. Excellent service. We enjoyed the open kitchen/open room concept and, of course, the view is fabulous.
The food & service were excellent. It was my boyfriend’s birthday and the staff acknowledged him kindly without embarrassing him. Very well done!
Great food and service, exceeded expectations
They took the lamb off of the menu (it was my absolute favourite) but this braised short rib was something else. I come here time and time again when visiting Seattle and highly recommend it to anyone.
Dinner has always been amazing at Westward, so we tried it for a celebratory family brunch. Unfortunately, the food was really not up to par. It was disappointing as I think of this as a go to.
Love Love Westward! The scenery and décor are perfect and the food was delicious !
Yes. This is the place to go for a fantastic view of the city. But I remember it being a but more sophisticated service. Food was very tasty and worth the money, but they didn't have a gin of my liking and the service was too casual.
I was seated at the bar and had very terrible service. My dinner came out before my cocktail arrived, and there were multiple times I was unable to flag my server down. They did take my drink off my bill, however, I felt the service should have been much better for what I had heard about this restaurant. The food was good but did not blow me away. Would probably not come back.
The $18 cheese plate was good, but the proportions were terrible!
Enjoyed the view and service, but every time I go here just feels like I spend a lot of money for just okay food
Seattle tourist but did my homework and made this reservation. When I arrived, I double checked my selection with various locals - bartender, tour guide, etc - and they all said to keep the reservation! I'm glad I did. Great view and excellent food! The halibut with walnut coucous was outstanding!
Service was super friendly and attentive. Liked the food. Was thoughtful and eclectic. Fresh
I’ve been to westward lots of times, but last night really felt like the food standard had gone down. The portions were smaller, my fish was over cooked and at almost 40bucks a pop per entree, this was not a cheap night out. I don’t think we will be back here for dinner again any time soon. So sad!
Amazing views on the water make this place special!
We took out of town friends here for a sunset dinner and it was a hit! Fantastic service, great food, and an amazing view of Lake Union and the city. Be ready to spend money, but it was the best pork chop we had ever tried.
The food was great and so was the service provided by
You’re paying for the atmosphere and small portions of good food. I’d do it again.
