“Very Good and inexpensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Within walking distance from where we stayed (Waverly Inn). Staff was friendly and accomodating because we were on a time schedule. She got us in and out in a hurry. I had the Max Club that had chicken and procuitto with pasta salad, It was very good, even left over! I loved the pasta salad. I found most restaurant pasta salads blan but not this one. It was well seasoned and left me craving it the next day...but that's just me, a pasta salad lover.

“I love this place. Worth the stop.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

This place has wood fired pizzas, but not the usual. Get the one with potatoes on it. The salads are equally as good. We had their special salad. It had a dressing made with cream soda and strawberries. Really delicious. I think it is the best dinner restaurant in Hendersonville.

“Maybe the best food in Hendersonville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

My wife and I have eaten at this wonderful restaurant at least once a week for the past several years. All food is prepared in view of the diners. Their fresh baked bread variety from their sister restaurant/bakery in Flat Rock is a bonus. They make one or two fresh soups from scratch every day, offer a wide variety of salad choices with home-made dressings, and the best thin crusted Pizza you will find in this area...perhaps the entire state. My only fuss with them...and it's minor in the greater scheme of things...is that they don't usually offer a pasta option for lunch.

“Always Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

West First is without a doubt one of my most favorite restaurants in Hendersonville. Every dish, from the pizza to the salads is amazing!! If you're in the mood for a sandwhich you must try the havarti and proscuitto grilled cheese. You don't want to miss it!! The staff is very friendly and helpful with wine and beer selections. West First is a "Don't Miss" in Hendersonville!

“Still going strong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is our go-to choice for special occasions as well as for a nice dinner out anytime. The atmosphere is lovely. the wait staff is attentive and helpful. The menu changes every season, so there are varied choices, expertly prepared and delicious. It is often very quiet in the winter months (and maybe a best kept secret as well, although it's busy during the other seasons.) I'm glad we live in Hendersonville and can support this lovely local restaurant.
