We had lunch at West on a weekday. It should had been busier as the food quality was excellent. The pasta, meat, and seafood alike were all cooked to perfection. The taste, texture and presentation all exceeded expectation. The 3-course set lunch came to about USD25. Service was equally excellent. We would definitely return.

This is one of those fabulous places where I am never disappointed. The service is outstanding. The food looks as good as it tastes. They make every effort to give me more and more reasons to keep coming back.

We went here as a family for brunch. We found it enjoyable place, the staff were friendly and we did not feel out of place in a fancy place with a 7 and 4 year old. They were accommodating with the meals and made sure we were looked after. We had two types of eggs Benedict (one pork and the... More

We happened upon this place by accident, after getting the long wait for Rangoli. The brunch was to die for. The perfect Benedict blew my mind, with egg yolks so fresh they glowed orange and hollandaise so light it made my mouth sing. The service was impeccable as well. One of the best brunches I've ever had.

It had been quite a few years since I had been at West. When I visited last Hawksworth was still at the helm of the kitchen. What I remembered was excellent presentation, food quality, and service. I had 3 in our party, and 2 of us had been before quite some time ago. All were unfortunately in alignment that things... More

We have recently moved to Vancouver and are sampling restaurants that have very good reputations.Thus we chose West as it is highly rated. I thought the decor was lovely. The floors and wainscoting are marble and the wall covering was a beautiful felt with embroidered and stitched cut outs (sourced from the MOMA collection). The candles lining the wall between...

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.
