Killing some time awaiting a table at Vij, across the street. Sat down at the empty bar, it was a little early, they had just opened. The bartender was a fantastic guide through high end drinks: raw egg whites, custom made mixers, mixology at the highest level. The bartender had won the world's best bartender contest the year previous. He... More

I expect a certain level of quality when spending close to $300.00 on a dinner and West falls far short of the mark .The food was merely OK - but the service was excellent. We won't be back

This trip we tried other fine dining in Vancouver in addition to the West. When asked to choose the best...it was STILL THE WEST.

For a very special occasion, we chose West in Vancouver. The meal was memorable; the food was outstanding, the wine list offered a good selection of local and imported wines, and the service was first rate. This was not an inexpensive meal but it was a superb dining experience and we will return.

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
