This is the best cafe I have ever eaten in. The food was amazing and th charm is to die for. I would lik to clone it and take one with me everywhere I go. But seriously worth the stop in. Fabulous

I Believe 3 hours is a bit long to dine. The food was very average my sons lobster tail was overcooked as was my wifes lamb. This was one of our favorite restaurants in town but no longer.

I found this cafe on Tripadvisor, so felt compelled to try it out since it is rated 4th in town. Great downtown location but nearest parking is 2 blocks away. This is a quaint Victorian storefront. I arrived on a Tuesday night and was promptly seated. Nice wine list and good menu choices. I ordered grilled salmon started with tomatoes... More

To celebrate our 58 Wedding Anniversary, my husband and I wanted to dine in a warm, comfortable place and eat delicious food. We hit a home run at the West End Grill. We shared a reasonable bottle of Gavi Gavi served by a gracious server and they enjoyed filet of beef and Sea Bass. The tone of the decor and... More

The West End Grill never disappoints. It provides a superb culinary experience in an intimate setting. Can't be beat for that special occasion or with good friends.

Ordered petite fillets well done and medium- rare. Both excellent. Be prepared for small servings but we appreciated the "just right" portions. Bleu cheese tarts were zingy and yummy. Some of the friendliest staff in A2. We loved the location downtown and although small, the eating areas were quaint.

They have kept their standards high. The atmosphere is welcoming, and calming. You are treated as though you are the only guest. We enjoyed the veal dumplings, brie and fig in a beggers purse, and a bleu cheese tart for starters. Our main corse consisted of a petite filet with the truffel fries, a maytag steak, and the scallop and... More

Eighteen years in business and sold out for a Wednesday evening. Turned tables. Great staff, thanks Sean. Yes, pricey but worth it. Don't miss the Tuna Poke. Have had better crab cakes. Black grouper was cooked and served at perfection, still flakey. Good selection of wines, love Mark Ryan from Washington State. Local crowd. Was U of M parents weekend... More

My husband and I have been to West End Grill many times over the last several years, and each experience is as good as the last. It is a small restaurant so reservations are a good idea. The menu is written on a chalkboard and the server memorizes each dish and recites it. I'm always amazed how they can do... More
