“wonderful pizza , great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Was here for lunch with my daughter and her daughter. The service was good and the server was attentive as well as patient with our little girl. The decor is fun and the pizza was among my alltime favorites! Good times!

“Terrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We gave up after waiting 40 minutes to order a pizza. There were 4 of us, and one person came in a few minutes after the other 3 were seated and had ordered drinks. When those drinks were delivered (after a 15 minute wait) the 4th person ordered her drink. When it was delivered, our waiter slammed it on the table and was gone before we could say a word. We tried to get his attention so that we could at least order, with no success. I felt like we were really in his way!
Finally, after a total of 40 minutes, we flagged him down and asked for our bill. He got THAT out, stat. Not just slow service, but inept borderline rude service.

Excellent food, great service, reasonable prices. This is one of the only places in Hendersonville that offers organic, healthy food.

“Good Meal Good Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Artisan, hand tossed pizza, local sourcing, everything made in house including the pasta, daily specials.
The room is very noisy. There is outside seating which is very pleasant and much more quiet.

“West First is one of the better choices in Hendersonville”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Just off Main Street, near courthouse, this place is very popular in Hendersonville. It has a unique and interesting modern/urban salvage interior atmosphere. Service staff is generally very good, although our waitress, this time, was new and not at the top of her game. Nice selection on the menu, some unique entrees and sides. The woodfired, brick oven pizzas were very nice with some creative combinations. Prices were commensurate with quality delivered.
