“Nicely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

I recently found this gem in the heart of yorkville and my only regret was that I had not found it any sooner. If you want some comforting and delicious French food in an intimate environment, with such jolly and friendly staff, this is the place! Very reasonable place and excellent dessert selection. You'll feel like you're by your grandma's...

“Birthday Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

My wife took me to West for my birthday. We haven't had dinner here in years and decided it was time to come back.

The food was absolutely amazing. The cocktails were fun and good. The staff were knowledgable and very nice.

Great birthday all around.

“very nice upper end restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

If you are looking for a nice high end restaurant that is still casual in nature, then West is worth trying. The food is very good and nicely presented. The food is pricey but the quality is there. They also have a very active bar scene on weekends that seems to cater to the well heeled 40+ crowd. There were patrons in suit and ties and many in casual weekend wear. Worth giving a try

“Part of number of great restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

Last week when in Whistler we dined at Araxi. A great meal. In Vancouver we stumbled on West. Ihad the lunch special with an outstanding beetroot salad, the fishcakes and the lemon pineapple desert. My wife had the duck salad and a wonderful scallop salad. The only mar against them was a curly hair in the desert and not perfectly clean cultery. Eeeh.

“Amazing Cocktails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This review is for the bar only. We stopped by West after dinner. We had heard about the inventive cocktails and wanted to try a few. Several hours later, we had made our way through several cocktails. West didn't disappoint. Kevin, our bartender, was fantastic. He took the time to tell us about the bitters, and infusions, and liquers that they make onsite (including letting us try some of the tinctures). And he had great suggestions for the type of drink we would like, including our last one where all I said was "I want something for dessert but not overly sweet) and he suggested a cocktail that he had created himself and was the perfect cocktail for us.
