Excellent food, efficient and helpful service without being over-fussy; warm, friendly and bustling atmosphere. The barrel-aged cocktails make a great aperitif, and the starters, main courses and desserts were outstanding. The braised short rib of bison, accompanied by chunks of lobster. intensely flavoured beets and herbed Couscous was a revelation. Good choice of wines too!

Had dinner at West a few weeks ago before heading to the Stanley theatre as West offered a 3 course pre fixed menu. The service was attentive and respectful and the food was tasty and creative. We also enjoyed a few cocktails from their inspiring list of beverages. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will return in the near... More

Its hard to find anything that is less that top flight at this midtown restaurant in Vancouver. We were seated quickly, service was always attentive but not overbearing and the food was generally excellent. A little pricey but it is, after all, Vancouver. Dinners were both excellent though my lamb was a little more fat laden than I would have... More

Wow! Where do we begin? We were in Vancouver to spend Easter with family and perhaps celebrate my husband's birthday....at home with kids and grandkids. Well, when the door was opened at Suzanne's house, there stood oldest son, Trevor. SURPRISE! Now Trevor and the family(10 of us in total) drive over to West Restaurant http://www.westrestaurant.com/menus/dinner. This is above and beyond... More

The service was very friendly, The food was not bad but the flavors were plain , cauliflower soup fore startes mixt with bacon is not always a good start.. The interior looks very American, and American with a chiny but bad taste...especially the silver things on the sealing and the hideous wall paper .. We weren't satisfied..

This is the second time we've visited West. First time was for lunch, second time was dinner during "dine out in Vancouver". Both times the meals were very small. Service was good. Tables are jammed into a long, narrow dining room so that you are right up against the people at the next table. Just room enough to squeeze thru'... More

Amazing attention to detail. Amazing service. I wouldn't consider it extremely pricey. I've been to expensive places, where you feel it's expensive and snubbish. Not in West, this is a very cool ambiance, went there for valentine's and the 3 meal lunch menu was $29. Each portion was excellent, texture, colours, flavours, all the right mix. Amazing. Just amazing. Kudos... More

We decided to splurge before heading to see the Odd Couple at the Stanley. I am please we did. We had lunch but expect to return for dinner when we come back to the Stanley. Everyone at our table loved the food. My ravioli was to die for. I am talking Wolfgang Puck quality food. The service team were well... More

My partner and I really enjoyed West. It's a beautiful space, and the food is amazing! My partner loved the seafood, he is still talking about how fresh and delicious it was. Technically the service was perfect, they didn't miss a beat. However, our server was a bit cold. In a perfect world, he would have smiled at least once.... More
