“Try the brussels as a starter!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We found this by accident, on our last night in Vancouver. It was a wonderful meal. Peter, the owner, recommended the brussels sprouts. I said YUK as I hate them! He said you've never tasted them done this way, so we had a portion as a starter. They were absolutely delicious! I even got the recipe, and have done them at home since. I had a cocktail to set the evening off. We then had scrummy steaks. A good menu, with an amazing selection. Highly recommended.

“Great food in Yaletown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

In the heart of Yaletown, this restaurant buzzes with atmosphere, has excellent food and very good-looking waitresses! The owner, Peter, personally ensures you are happy with the service and your meal. Highly recommended.

“Great Meal, Good Service, Nice Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

We were staying in the Yaletown section of Vancouver. There are 10 to 15 nice restaurants on one street in this area. We decided on West Oak because he menu appealed to all members in our party of 4. At the top of the menu were eye catches for Bourbon drinkers, double Old Fashions or Mint Juleps for $9. The menu included steaks, chicken, burgers and 3 different types of fish. The had all sustainable food choices from nearby sources, if you care about that. They had excellent fries and mussels appetizers. Our waitress was cute, smart and very knowledgable. She provided good service and pleasant conversation. The owner Peter came to our table to make sure we were enjoying our meal. I would highly recommend if you are looking for an enjoyable evening with good food. To top our evening off, Peter sent over fresh baked cookies.
