This was great, nice small romantic funky place, with excellent food and wine list. Modern chic interior, young staff who were trained at service. A great English waiter from Somerset was very charming and helpful. More expensive but worth every penny for a great meal out

The service was perfect, with wait staff being attentive but not hovering. The food and drinks were ridiculously fresh, delicious, and appealingly arranged. I would love to eat here again, wallet permitting.

Very attractive interior. A bit of an oasis in busy part of the city. Great personal service. Oyster selection was excellent. Pricey but worth it.

We had a large family dinner here (13 of us), and were extremely pleased with the experience. The service was excellent, especially with such a large number of people and the food was exceptional, from the special spring pea soup through the delicious fish and seafood to the rhubarb dessert. Of special note was the knowledgeable service for the one... More

I was celebrating my 70th - my daughter and her husband took us out to West - this is one awesome place - okay, I could be cynical and say the place was so wonderful because they knew it was my b-day but I would like to think it is always that way. I have dined at some good restaurants,... More

I recently found this gem in the heart of yorkville and my only regret was that I had not found it any sooner. If you want some comforting and delicious French food in an intimate environment, with such jolly and friendly staff, this is the place! Very reasonable place and excellent dessert selection. You'll feel like you're by your grandma's...

My wife took me to West for my birthday. We haven't had dinner here in years and decided it was time to come back. The food was absolutely amazing. The cocktails were fun and good. The staff were knowledgable and very nice. Great birthday all around.

If you are looking for a nice high end restaurant that is still casual in nature, then West is worth trying. The food is very good and nicely presented. The food is pricey but the quality is there. They also have a very active bar scene on weekends that seems to cater to the well heeled 40+ crowd. There were... More

Last week when in Whistler we dined at Araxi. A great meal. In Vancouver we stumbled on West. Ihad the lunch special with an outstanding beetroot salad, the fishcakes and the lemon pineapple desert. My wife had the duck salad and a wonderful scallop salad. The only mar against them was a curly hair in the desert and not perfectly... More

This review is for the bar only. We stopped by West after dinner. We had heard about the inventive cocktails and wanted to try a few. Several hours later, we had made our way through several cocktails. West didn't disappoint. Kevin, our bartender, was fantastic. He took the time to tell us about the bitters, and infusions, and liquers that... More
