Enjoyable evening with great food

We visited the West End Grill with our freshman and her friend. I loved the ambiance, although the large group sitting at the next table was very loud. I'm glad everyone was having a great time.

You can count on a wonderful meal with attentive, but unobtrusive service every time. Staff are long-term, and very knowledgeable. Food is creative, and always hits the mark. The owner is usually on-site and details make this place a signature restaurant!

The ambience was cozy, the waiter excellent and there was nice attention to detail ie. warm plates, warm rolls, herb butter and other thoughtful touches. With it's location in a charming old building, hanging colored glass lamps and antique accessories, it felt a bit like Grandmother's kitchen which was warm and appealing on a cold dark night. The dinner itself... More

A friend took me to the West End Grill -- where he's a regular. I was skeptical when he told me how good the restaurant was. He was right. The menu was very ambitious, and they delivered on all they promised. The server was knowledgeable without showing off or being intrusive. The table was comfortable and the noise level made... More

Food was good but not amazing. Not a lot of creativity. Wine list is strong. Portion sizes are generous. A bit pricy for AA. Service is average

I love everything about the West End Grill: the ambience, the bar, the food, and the service. Even if you don't want to go there for dinner, at least pop in to sit at the bar and have a cocktail – perfection!

Top notch establishment. Great service and food. The restaurant is small and comfortable. Our waiter was knowledgable about wine and suggested the rack of lamb which was delicious. Our visit was a most pleasant end to a long travel day. A real treat!

We enjoyed our Saturday night dinner meal. The restaurant has nice ambiance with low lighting and interesting surroundings in an older building. The menu has a nice selection between meat and seafood dishes. We started with the house salad which was nicely dressed. I had the filet with blue cheese special while my companion had the small filet. Both were... More
