What Insiders Are Saying
Westward is a place that will make you excited to live in Seattle. (Or consider buying property here ASAP.)
Fantastic food, very attentive service. We can’t wait to return!
Location is great. The food is hit and miss. Last night the salmon was a bit overcooked. My short ribs were good but tasted more like a pot roast. We had to ask 3 different waiters to get us the wine we had ordered. The starter came out well before the wine.
Could have been an off night.
Food was fantastic and the view was even better. My only complaint was that our service was only OK. I did not like how our designated server didn't seem like a designated server. I had different people bringing drinks, food, and taking our orders. Plus, we waited for about 15 minutes before a drink order was taken. Other than that, great experience and amazing view. Definitely on the pricey side, which i was expecting-- however, for the service we had, it was a little frustrating.
The good at Westward is delicious, but the atmosphere was crowded and loud. The online photos of the patio are inviting, but the reality is quite different. We had requested patio seating with our reservation but advised when we arrived that there were several large parties and no table for us. We were offered Adirondack chairs which we passed on. At our inside table, our server asked if we had any questions then promptly left without taking our drink order. The kitchen and bar were entertaining and the food was excellent. Not sure we would return, however.
Great food and ambiance. The only issue I have is that the waiter spilled a drink on my boyfriend and still charged us.
I love the atmosphere at this restaurant, especially in the summer with their lakeside bar. We ordered sockeye salmon and halibut entrees. The halibut was especially delicious, not overcooked, and served with pearl couscous. The octopus salad was also delicious. The only misstep was that our side dish arrived after the entrees, but that was quickly remedied.
wonderful plating, savory dishes, excellent oysters
service was slow, food was average, menu selection was very limited, prices were very high
Wonderful experience — great atmosphere, service, and food.
Have been to Westward twice and both times the service was very slow, probably the slowest I've experienced in years. The oysters had pieces of shell in them. The pork chop was delicious but all it came with was chick peas. I don't mind chick peas and these were well prepared but why pair a pork chop with 100 chick peas and nothing else? Sitting outside by the water is nice but unfortunately not enough to get me to go back.
Parents in town. Great meal! Slightly expensive appetizers for size.
Great cocktails. Great food. Great setting.
Great spot, excellent service, amazing food.
Service was amazing! Great recommendations.
A must go-to in the summer, right on the water with indoor and outdoor options. The food and drinks are great but can be pricey so go at happy hour if you want some great deals! Overall love love this restaurant.

We loved our evening at Westward celebrating a birthday! The vibe is cool, wonderful views, terrific food and great service. The oysters are a Must! Definitely a place that you can make an entire evening enjoyable before dinner, dinner and after dinner cocktails watching the sunset! we'll be back!
My halibut was pretty dry and overcooked, which was disappointing for the price. Other than that, the food was yummy (especially the burrata), our server was super friendly, and views were great as always! Awesome place to spend a birthday.
Service was awesome! Food was great. Couldn't have asked for a better meal on our last night in Seattle.
Reserve an outside table if you can.
Wonderful water front dining. Excellent food...always !
Had an amazing anniversary dinner at the perfect spot.
Small portions but good quality. Rather overpriced. May come back to give them another chance.
Great waitstaff and menu was great
The food was good, but not outstanding as far as flavors. Overpriced for small quantities
Bar tender was very rude. All other staff were great. Food was good.
The food was good but overpriced for casual setting. It was too hot and noisy inside. I will not go back
Cool ambiance and the service was outstanding! Food was delicious. Slightly pricey, however location and service are worth it.
Great morning on the water with plenty of oysters! Great day with the Austin visitors.
Fabulous service, wonderful, but pricy oysters, but unfortunately, it’s quite loud which makes it difficult for an easy conversation.
Too loud - hard to have a conversation. Otherwise everything was wonderful.
Great atmosphere and a mouth-watering menu in a thoughtfully designed setting with an amazing view of Seattle.
Perfect in every possible way. Location, view, service have always been excellent (we’ve gone here a lot over the years for date nights or special occasions). But the food on this visit was exquisite. My party ordered the oysters, halibut, short ribs, pea risotto, and potatoes and one was better than the next. For dessert we got the butterscotch pot de creme and the brownie with ice cream. Both delicious, but the ice cream with the chocolate shell/syrup was next level. We will absolutely be back!
Overall great experience and definitely highly recommended.
I would suggest to have more appetizers.
Westward is always a treat in the summer!
The views are amazing. The food was fresh & tasty, although I am sad they changed their recipe on the Octopus Salad.
Our server was friendly & attentive.
We ate here w/ out of town visitors and they LOVED it! The food was delicious, the service was great, and the scenery is beautiful.
Loved this place! What a gem if you live in the area. We are from Oregon and in town visiting friends and I found this on a website and loved the idea of renting kayaks and paddle omg our way over to the restaurant but the rain had other plans. We drove and it was just as nice to see the area and all the channels to the neighborhood. I hope this place stays and earns the live it deserves! We had fresh oysters and clams. The risotto will blow you away and the butterscotch creme will make your evening complete!! Enjoy the view and the laid back vibe.
Great service and atmosphere
Food was bland.
Amazing service, loved sitting in the outdoor chairs and the service while we waited for our table! Such a fabulous experience - would absolutely recommend for a special HH or dinner!
