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.

First time trying out Dine Out at West and it was less than impressive. The restaurant is very nicely decorated but when you first walk in, there was a "stench" but after awhile you become accustomed to the smell so it no longer is so distinguishable. The food was not stellar or impressive in taste. We all had the Dine... More

Me and my group of friends were extremely excited to try this restaurant as we had heard a lot of good things about it. We had reservations for 9:30pm but did not get a table until 10:00pm. This is NOT why the evening left a sour taste in my mouth. When we were seated no one even acknowledged that we... More

This has by far the worst customer service I have ever received. We arrive on time for our reservations. We had to wait almost an hr to be seated. The managers did not even have the curiosity to even come apology or anything. We didn't expect to get anything free stuff or discount out of it. We wouldn't have been... More

I'm writing this review a year late so I don't remember the details of what I had ordered. But my experience was definitely a memorable one for me. The food was fresh and very unique in its taste. The service was polite and friendly. The atmosphere seemed perfect for business meetings or dates (although I came with my family instead).... More

The service is first rate, and the atmosphere fully satisfactory. The food is above average, and the selections adequate. However, I have to question the value of what you pay for which I rate as low. There are several places in Vancouver where you can get equally delicious meals, if not better, at more economical prices. You are paying dearly... More

We decided to treat ourselves to one last Eggnog of the season. We have enjoyed 3 visits over the holiday season, and each visit is as great as the last. The cocktails at a West are masterfully prepared, and the flavours are a treat to the palette.
