I've been coming to 56 West for years, almost always very pleased! Food is good, portions good. My last two visits i've noted that the service is slow coming out of the kitchen, and it's not overly crowded but still the kitchen seemed very slow. Nice menu, good value. I've introduced several friends to this place and again they have... More

Delicious market fresh food with clever menu names...a very nice local stop for a salad, burger, or a variety of other casual meals.

My fiance and I went there for a quick bite to eat on Sunday 10/21 at 5pm. We know Sunday evening is not a hoppin' time for dinner, but we were the only people there. When we were seated the cook was sitting down at a table in the dining are with his feet up watching a football game. I... More

A very nice corner bistro with an inventive menu and a caring staff. We are lucky to have such a nice place in the neighborhood.

This is a nice place for a more intimate lunch or breakfast. It is crowded and there isn't much room for a large group to eat. The food is good - tho on the pricey side for what you get.

My friends raved about their burgers. I went with the salmon, which was over-cooked. I had a sauce that was disgusting, but they exchanged it for a flavorless one. The chicken and waffles was just okay. Why is it very good? Their staff is lovely. And they have something called ME'NAGE A TROIS POMME FROMAGE. I could eat nothing but... More

Ate there very very recently...the weekend of my 30th high school class reunion. Ended up there while on a walk through our old hometown and remembered that our daughter LOVES it and my hubby had actually eaten there with her! We had a delightful server and the food was memorable and deliciously fresh!
