We live in the area and get to try many of the local restaurants. We are selective when we go out and look for restaurants that rise above the OC norm. We found that in Ky West! First impressions are always telling ... and the bar and dining areas are stunning! This is a place where you will definitely want to linger over your meal with friends. Very sleek, modern and up-scale! We dined in the bar area which has more of a casual feel ... fireplace, tastefully placed TV monitors (if you just don't want to miss the game!), There is also a comfy couch seating area near the fireplace!! Enough about the ambiance ... what about the food? My salmon was PERFECTLY prepared and the accompanying Thai chili sauce was delicious! The dinner comes with 2 veggies ... so you don't have to get French fries (although theirs are hand-cut and seasoned). I ordered a side salad and sweet potato casserole (a yummy comfort food side dish!) Our friends were also thrilled with the steak and the pan-seared scallops! The meal was also accompanied by a seasonal offering of pumpkin corn bread which was sooo good! Before we left we toured the dining area side which has a beautiful illuminated tropical fish tank mounted on the wall! so sorry that I don't have pictures for you! We also met the executive chef Jay James, formerly of Ruth's Chris! I heartily endorse Ky West ... great food, great ambiance at a reasonable price!
