My partner and I came here over the weekend expecting to choose off of the Dine Out Vancouver menus however we ended up ordering off the regular menu and it did not disappoint. The food and service are both absolutely incredible. With that being said, this is the second time I have visited West (first time I sampled cocktails and... More

Every Christmas I choose a special restaurant to take my family out for a grown up evening of great food, wine and conversation. This year we headed to a contemporary Vancouver Classic on Granville Street, West! Loved the buzz of the room, wonderful cocktails and really delicious food, locally selected. Terrific service and lots of help with drinks and the... More

Went to West last night for a friends birthday dinner for the 1st time. It was actually the 1st time for the whole group surprisingly. The birthday boy picked this place based on the good reviews that he saw so you can understand our frustration when the whole table was disappointed as we didn't like any of the main dishes... More

Absolutely amazing, delicious cocktails. There is such a large menu you're sure to find a few to try. Three of us had cocktails and split the Chocolate Tasting dessert, with petit fours to go. It was the perfect way to end the night on Granville. Can't wait to go back and try other drinks.

This is normally a place to go for a special occasion. Unfortunately, it is distinctly hit-and miss. On a good night, you will get a great meal in a wonderful ambience. On my most recent visit, we hit a bad night. We were sat down at a table for a farewell dinner with some friends. Shortly after, a large crowd... More

For the last few years, six of us have celebrated Christmas at West. It only seemed fitting that when two of these friends decided to retire back to their homeland of NZ, that we celebrate their last evening at West. What a mistake! We were seated on a table next to where a party of 26 people would also be... More

Description
Recognized as the 'jewel in Vancouver's culinary crown', West Restaurant's outstanding contemporary regional cuisine and seamless service has earned much critical acclaim. Pristine seasonal ingredients are sourced to deliver superbly conceived dishes offering modern interpretations of classics. For those keen to observe 'behind the scenes' action and experience West from a unique perspective, the two 'chef's tables' can be found directly adjacent to the presentation kitchen. One of the highlights of the dining room is a temperature-controlled wall of wine, and under it, the long cherry wood bar that gracefully anchors the conversation-where martinis and cocktails are composed of fresh herbs, juices and creative infusions. A Werner Forster installation floats under the ceiling-a study of light and motion. The leather chairs are the Mario Bellini designed originals found at MOMA, surrounding etched stone tabletops, highlighting a handsome and inviting room that speaks to contemporary Vancouver.

Staying in South Granville

Neighborhood Profile
South Granville
The neighbourhood closest to the airport, a generous mix of locals and tourists populate the area. The blend has made it a go-to spot to find an eclectic collection of entertainment, from theatres and cinemas, to antique stores and last-minute kitsch souvenir shops. It gives off a transient vibe, and is one of the more higgledy-piggledy areas in terms of what you'll find, making it a fun area to explore and map out, all while taking in the hectic atmosphere of people coming and going, while others look for the best ways to spend their last few hours in the city.
