Have been here about 7 or 8 times since first discovering it about a year ago. Lots of other fine places closer to my house, but I never hesitate to make the trip here since this is always better. Excellent risotto, great pasta and other entrees. Must try the short ribs, but make sure you have plenty of "room" for... More

490 West offers a comprehensive menu at reasonable prices and a wonderful staff who delivers food that is delicious from start to finish. My husband and I had no complaints at all.

We had the Living Social Voucher but unlike other reviewers, had no problem using it. We were a little wary after sitting down and getting bread and water in a few minutes but no visit from a actual server for almost 10 minutes. She was very nice and personable but seemed to be the only waitress on our side of... More

Recently dined here with a group. Lovely, friendly staff and yummy fare. Had the risotto as a appetizer and the duck. Both were quite delish! Dessert was a rich chocolate flourless cake, which while very good, was quite rich. Nice local place.

We purchased an online promotion voucher, so we knew that the price fixe was not included (it did appear to be an excellent value and if we were to return, we would definitely take advantage of it) and had no difficulties with the voucher per se, unlike another reviewer. The restaurant had gotten a very good review in the newspaper... More

Perhaps out of desperation, 490 West ran a promotional campaign through Living Social that appears to have been designed to get would-be customers in the door, but not actually allow the customer to use the discount. My daughter gave me a $50 discount voucher (she paid $25) for my birthday. We decided to use it on a lovely fall Saturday... More

We came here at a friend’s recommendation. She had been here once before and loved it. The occasion was 3 birthdays clustered in January. The five of us came here a couple of nights ago and all of us got the prix fix, which was $27.95 for 3 courses. I had the Baked Brie with papaya and mango chutney and... More

This is everything a good local restaurant should be, and the crowd knows it. A welcome diversion, 490 West is a real restaurant with tablecloths, nice livery and friendly service. That service comes in handy when the kitchen gets backed up, which it does as a typical Saturday night begins to unravel. When it arrives, the food is marvelous. However,... More

Went there for New Years Eve with party of 4. Food was very good and staff pleasant and helpful considering it was a busy night. Steak was cooked perfectly. The only complaint is when we arrived, the owner greeted us wearing jeans and a Led Zeppelin t shirt. I'm not saying he should've been wearing a top hat and tails,... More
