“A 6 star restaurant!!!! Must go, must return.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

Amazing attention to detail.
Amazing service. I wouldn't consider it extremely pricey.

I've been to expensive places, where you feel it's expensive and snubbish.

Not in West, this is a very cool ambiance, went there for valentine's and the 3 meal lunch menu was $29. Each portion was excellent, texture, colours, flavours, all the right mix. Amazing. Just amazing. Kudos for the chef, owner, and the whole team that works there.

I even asked for details about the ingredients, olive oils, etc. And the servers knew and where patient (proud) enough to explain.

Check the picture, even the soap, is sourced by a local company. All the philosophy of this place is coherent.

“Another Granville St. Hit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

We decided to splurge before heading to see the Odd Couple at the Stanley. I am please we did. We had lunch but expect to return for dinner when we come back to the Stanley. Everyone at our table loved the food. My ravioli was to die for. I am talking Wolfgang Puck quality food. The service team were well timed. I recommend reservations so you won't be disappointed when shut out of a table. One trick, if you have a sweet tooth wait for the truffles served when they bring the cheque. You don't need desert

“A Nice Treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

My partner and I really enjoyed West. It's a beautiful space, and the food is amazing! My partner loved the seafood, he is still talking about how fresh and delicious it was.

Technically the service was perfect, they didn't miss a beat. However, our server was a bit cold. In a perfect world, he would have smiled at least once. The rest of the staff was really friendly and inviting. We will definitely be back.

“Lives up to and surpasses advance reviews”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

We went during Dine out Vancouver, and the value was great!, and only surpassed by the food and service. we were absolutely delighted. The food was inventive, all three courses, and the service was personal, and was co pathetic to our pace and mood...this is an exceptional restaurant, and hits all the notes perfectly. This where to go for that special night, for that special date, and be prepared to pay....our dine our prices were lower than the usual menu, but at even those prices this is an exemplary leader in Vancouver...do not doubt the reviews this is outstanding

“Food fabulous ... Service impeccable ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

We went West for restaurant week. We had the three course with an extra side of west fries. Wine with the main course. The food was superb from appetizer to dessert. For appies the golden beet soup and the deconstructed tuna tataki. For mains the veal breast and salmon. The desserts were abundant with special truffles for our anniversary and my wife's birthday. In addition, chocolate banana and lemon cake. Then of course the service was amazing and impeccable.
