We go to plays and concerts often in the Hendersonville area. We love the town and have tried many restaurants there. We have put this restaurant at the top of our favorites. The salads and pizza are excellent, fresh and well prepared. We will return, take friends, and tell others to try it. Great waitress, too!

Really enjoyed the food - great tasting and very reasonable prices. Family friendly. Would have been a "5" with a little less noise.

We have been to WEST FIRST several times and have never been disappointed. The oven wood- fired pizza is incredible. We love their salads. They offer gluten-free and vegan choices. You will not be disappointed.

It is an a slightly up-scale restaurant in terms of ambiance and menu selections although the prices were very reasonable. The restaurant is on a side street, just off of main street near the historic county courthouse. They specialize in pizzas and pasta, but have a number of other selections. The couple with us were regulars and had the potato... More

Great bar scene, the service is very good but get they tend to get covered up on the weekend. That should tell you something. You can't go wrong with the food. Good beer selection of international and local craft beers. Can't imagine why you would buy the national or international selections with the incredible selection of amazing local craft beers....

Great pizza from a brick oven. I actually have a friend drives to Hendersonville for a haircut in order to justify eating here. Fresh ingredients, crispy outer crust. Cute place too.

Had the arugula salad with pistachios and the prosciutto pizza. Wonderful! Great quirky atmosphere and friendly staff. Will definitely be back.

Very noisy but the goat cheese pizza is the best. My friend with me said it was the best pizza she ever ate. If the weather is nice eat outside on the deck. Quiet!

We recently visited friends in the Hendersonville area, and just had to revisit West East, my favorite lunch spot in the area. WE is located just off the main road through downtown Hendersonville, and there is plenty of parking nearby. We found a spot right across the street with no meter and a three hour limit. The restaurant closes at... More
