World class food and service. While expensive for Vancouver, a bargain anywhere else. The pork duo was amazing. The food is always fresh, local and creative. This restaurant never disappoints.

West is one of our local go to spots if we need that little extra sense of sophisticated splash. We went mid week to grab a drink with a friend, prior to heading out to the theatre, and were seated at a lovely table (much easier to chat than a threesome at the bar) The Sea Fling Cocktail has now...

This is a high end restaurant and the food presentation reflects that. It is a great place for a business lunch. The food was very good - I had the salmon which was delicious and my wife had a chicken sandwich which was very well presented, but she was not so impressed. The portions were on the small side so...

I go there every time I am in Vancouver. Consistently excellent everything! We always sit at the bar and watch the bartender make amazing drinks. We always have a little snack too. The diver caught scallop is super yum!

We had been going to West formerly Ouest for many years. We usually sit at the chef table watching the kitchen. Food was succulent as usual, we had fish and filet mignon. Staff was great as usual, just the sommelier should loosen up a bit. We had a great evening. We will go back and do recommend the restaurant.

I have been to West a few times but have never posted a review before. It is an excellent, upscale bistro-like restaurant. The food is really good and very well presented. Service is attentive but not over-bearing and presentations are special. It is also easy to conduct business or have a conversation there. Today I had gaspacho and ling cod.... More

Great modern pacific northwest cuisine. Really enjoyed their seafood risotto which was offered to me off-menu. The bartender there does great work as watching him make drinks is a show all by itself. The restaurant design in beautiful and service is excellent. One of the best meals in the city

West is a lovely restaurant with a great reputation. Five of us went for brunch this morning and were all very happy with the food and the service. The server was attentive and very nice, but not intrusive. The food was well presented and delicious - our eggs benny were as ordered (cooked white, runny yoke), and those who had... More

What a pity. The service and ambiance were nice but the food really falls short. We wanted to like this restaurant. We ordered tasting menus, the vegetarian tasting menu was so average and lacking in flavor. I didn't understand how these dishes could even end up on a restaurant menu. The corn dessert was one of the all time worst... More
