Certainly upscale but a large busy restaurant.

Food, service, presentation and decor was great for me as solo senior but not the best place for a quiet romantic dinner for two!

We had a very good time last weekend. Ordered the dry aged steak and the prime cut that they had on offer. Added a bottle of wine. The steaks were outstanding, some of the best we've had.

This food was INCREDIBLE. The lobster gnocchi was out of this world amazing. We also ordered the risotto- thus was also good - just make sure you really love blue cheese or thus us not for you. Dinner we got salmon and ravioli. The salmon was good, the ravioli was to-die-for delish. Desserts - you MUST get the pear tart.... More

After wanting to try this restaurant for a long time, we went to West Restaurant for lunch. We were seated right away in the area that looked the best to us (comfortable bench seating on one side). The restaurant has a modern design and lots of natural light. Bathroom was beautiful, loved the design of the dishes and it was... More

The gnocchi was gummy, not fluffy. The lobster was rubbery, not tender. The beef was flavourless. Everything had the appearance of high quality dining but fell flat. Nothing was good. So disappointing.

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend and although it was a 45 minute drive from home, it was worth the effort. We had made a reservation online at Opentable and the restaurant confirmed by e-mail and telephone. We had an excellent meal with seared foie gras and a lovely parsnip soup, followed by duck and a duo... More

Quiet, clean cut restaurant, quick service, appropriate time spacing between courses. Risotto? Tasted like a baked potato...I LOVED it.

This is a very nice relatively small to medium size in an area known as South Granville. Good shopping area. Food and service are both excellent. Prices would be on the higher (but not highest) side. Had lunch there last week with 4 friends. All meals were thoroughly enjoyed.

We went to West during Dine Out. We were delighted with the service and btw we got seated immediately upon arrival. We visited for my wife's birthday. We had the striploin steak and the salmon both great. The suggested wine pairings were nice. And the service was attentive, knowledgeable and helpful. We be back.
