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

We have been going here several time a year for the better part of a decade. I am struck by how we have never had a disappointing meal in that time - and indeed have had several very memorable exceptional meals. The staff provide a knowledgable and un intrusive service. Although whole meal is great, desserts deserve a special mention.... More

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

Well, when the door was opened at Suzanne's house, there stood oldest son, Trevor. SURPRISE!
