One of the best and most beautifully designed restaurants in Vancouver. It has been awhile since we've dined here and it was by happenstance that we found ourselves checking out their brunch menu. We were out shopping for our daughter's school gear at Pottery Barn and passed by. We've brunched our way through the city but the brunch here is... More

The restaurant is very tastefully decorated and the service professional and friendly. The food is definitely "upmarket" and trendy. I had lamb and merguez meatballs in a tomato sauce. The bathrooms are great, no paper towels for them. Real towels.

I went here to celebrate my Daughter's Birthday with my Wife, my Son-in-Law and of course my Daughter. I had high expectations of the restaurant as I had heard that it was supposed to be very good. I ordered the Salmon ($31.50), my Wife and Daughter each ordered the halibut ($44.50) and my Son-inLaw the ravioli ($31.50), My Wife and... More

Went for dinner here after not having any luck securing reservations at our first and second choice. The bar was great having a large selection of specialty coctails and beers. The barender was very friendly and knowledgeable. We were seated for dinner quickly. The atmosphere is very comfortable and liked the open kichen. When it came to the menu, we... More

This is the second time this year that I visited this restaurant and was not disappointed. The chefs create beautiful and delicious foods with fresh ingredients. The menu was very creative and I have experienced few restaurants who can come up with such creative foods pairings. This is a special occasion destination for me and my guests. The pricing reflects... More

We enjoyed our dinner and loved all aspects of our meal. Our waiter was thoughtful and very knowledgable about the food prep and the wine list. We enjoyed the meal.

We have been here for brunch on two occasions. The first, with our family of four and the second with a larger group. On both occasions, we were impressed with the food, service, and attention to detail. This is well worth visiting for brunch and I am sure other mealtimes are also excellent!

The food is average for the price. $38.50 for Lamb loin, the service was as if we were lucky that they were there to serve us. My friend choose price fix deal of $45 for 3 courses, salad, main and a dessert. Would have enjoyed it more,...but there was a liberal sprinkling of sarcasm with the food. We had two... More

We went to West for a special birthday based on the reputation of the restaurant. I would say that this restaurant has passed it's prime. We both had tasting menus which were lacking in imagination and execution. Overall the food was lackluster and poorly executed. More specifically 4/6 of the oysters contained large chunks of shell. The beef with egg... 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.
