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

Great modern pacific northwest cuisine. Really enjoyed their seafood risotto which was offered to me off-menu. The bartender there does great work as watching him make drinks is a show all by itself. The restaurant design in beautiful and service is excellent. One of the best meals in the city

West is a lovely restaurant with a great reputation. Five of us went for brunch this morning and were all very happy with the food and the service. The server was attentive and very nice, but not intrusive. The food was well presented and delicious - our eggs benny were as ordered (cooked white, runny yoke), and those who had... More

What a pity. The service and ambiance were nice but the food really falls short. We wanted to like this restaurant. We ordered tasting menus, the vegetarian tasting menu was so average and lacking in flavor. I didn't understand how these dishes could even end up on a restaurant menu. The corn dessert was one of the all time worst... More

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
