I have been to this restaurant several times and it never disappointed me. Food is always great with recipes unique to this restaurant. The martini is prepared perfectly and the selection of wine is very good.

Terrible dine out experience. Food less than average from a restaurant i love. Wine was substandard by the glass. Service impeccable as always.

Really good hand crafted drinks to start. Portion sizes look on the small side, and honestly could have been a little larger, but the quality was outstanding and did not leave hungry. Desserts appeared custom made in-house, and something you would see on a special cooking show. Service was attentive and quick, to the point of seeming almost robotic in... More

Visited several times. Offers creative menu, trendy drinks...and good place to spot a celebrity of two. It does get a little loud so not a romantic restaurant. It is pricey.

Came for dinner at West as part of the Dine out Vancouver during my recent trip. The flavours were amazing. I had the French Onion Soup, Beef Flats and Apple Cake for dessert. The beef was well flavoured and so tender I actually was able to cut it with my fork! My cocktail was quite interesting, a chocolate lime cachaca... More

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

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.

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.
