Whatever you order you won't be disappointed. This great neighborhood restaurant features an interesting menu, and anything you select will be a tasty treat. Good service too.

We chose West End Cafe to celebrate a birthday party. All of us arrived for a 815 reservation and only had to wait about 15 minutes. The 9 of us were seated at a table across from the front entrance. Very chilly throughout the meal because of the cool evening air coming at us each time a patron entered or... More

We have been going to this restaurant for years. The food is delicious and presented in a beautiful way. A good variety on the menu. As it is difficult to get a reservation,especially on the weekends it's recommended to make them at least a week in advance. It can get very loud and the seating in the back for two... More

You would never believe a small restaurant in Carle Place in a corner of a strip center would be so good. A regular lunch place for me. Never disapointed

Awesome menu, reliable staff, wide variety. Needs to step it up in the kitchen. Although ingredients are good they cook to the taste of snowbirds. Would be nice to liven up a bit. I love going here, had not been in two years until this week. Glad I went back and would recommend to friends. Good twilight special.

It's located in the rear of a shopping center, bit hard to find if you don't know it. Was quiet when we entered, but got busier & noisier as time went by. We ordered: vegetable panini which came with all kinds of veggies and some goat cheese, & a side of couscous; also a duck wrap, which was sort of... More

Had a few great dinners here and decided to host our children's Graduation party here. The staff didn't miss anything. Food, service and staff were outstanding. Great decision. Bright airy but intimate and cozy space for our group of 65. Cocktails. Duck tacos, sliders, avocado dip at the bar for all. Dinners from salmon to penne were delicious. Cappuccino and... More

As usual dinner at the West End Cafe was an adventure. We almost always order something different and usually follow the advice of the wait staff who are very knowledgeable about all the dishes and food in general. We had the WEC black bean and avocado dip with fried plantains appetizer, which was highly recommended. As our waiter told us,... More
