“It's been a while.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

To be fair I have not been there in over a year, but the food on the last two visits (dinner) was excellent, as was the service. I am giving it a four star because the lunch service a couple of other times left a lot to be desired, and the management was rude. Servers had too much perfume on and looked like she just got off the graveyard shift at the strip club. Off-putting to say the least but the I remembered I was in Gilroy ;)

“Try the tuna tartare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

I admit to being in a rut at Westside - I have to preface anything I have here with the tartare - it is really tasty, and not too filling. The rest of their meals from the sandwiches to the steaks and seafoods are always done well.

“Bad Service!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2011

This place needs to re-train their staff. The service is the worse in town. The last time we were there, we waited at least 30 minutes for our drinks and another 30 minutes for our food. I never walk out of a restaurant and came very close to it that night. When my husband opened his napkin, it was full of old caked on food. It was disgusting!!! We could not get anyones attention to inquire about our service or the dirty filthy napkin. It look like it was a shift change and the wait staff was hussling around but we did not see our waitress for a long time. When our drinks fianlly came (by someone else) we showed the wait staff our napkin and she sent our waitress over to our table. All the waitress could do was complain that the day shift was not doing their job. She refused to take any responsibility for any of it. When the food finally came, my husband got the wrong order. The food is not bad at this place but the service is the less to be desired. The management needs to step up to the plate on their service or close their doors. It is a gamble if you decide to eat at Westside Grill

“A quality dining experience right off Highway 152 - Hecker Pass”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

For travelers traveling along Highway 152 - Hecker Pass, there are a number of attractions in the region from Gilroy Gardens to boutique wineries. Many visitors take this scenic route to reach the coast, so here is a dining tip. A 1 minute drive from the intersection of Highway 152 and Santa Teresa Blvd. is the Westside Bar & Grill. Nicely appointed in a quality environment, this is a perfect place for family, friends, meetings, or having a drink in the bar. Check out the handpainted murals of local scenes that were crafted by local artist, Whitney Pintello.

The restaurant has a wide range of menu choices including steaks, chicken, or fish. The salads are always delicious - fresh and crisp. For dessert, the freshly baked chocolate chip cookie served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream is a favorite.

“great food, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2011

Went for my husband’s birthday with some friends. Had filet mignon and lobster tail and it was fabulous! Their sou[ of the day was lobster bisque and it was beyond delicious! They had a gentleman singing jazzy music, it was very nice.
