“Good time and fun for all”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

We went to the Sunday afternoon performance of Two Hit Wonders and found it very enjoyable. Two other couples were with us and found the music and skits both humourous and emotional depending on the song being presented. All of us remarked about the performers and how good they were. Each had their own unique stage presence and their voices were the best we had heard in some time. Would liked to have gone to an evening performance as I am sure adding wine to this show would have had us dancing in the isles.

“Impressive Buffet and Show!”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

The buffet here is great! I am a bit of a food snob and generally do not enjoy buffets, but this changed my opinion! Great food and lots of choice. Nothing is left out too long and they rotate the dishes even when not yet empty.

The show was great as well.

Overall, I was impressed!

“Buffet and Show”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Stage West is a large venue. We attended a Sunday Matinee. Parking was a bit of a problem but there is a lot close by and short walk to the theatre. After checking in an usher will take you to your table and fill you in on the buffet location. Dress was casual. Everyone has a good view of the stage however the tables seemed too close for comfort. The buffet is in another area so we had to remember where our table was located as it was dimly lit. The buffet had excellent choices and plenty of food. They placed more desserts in the lobby after the show if you preferred. The show was Sexy Laundry, an adult comedy and well done. It is over $70 for show and buffet. Overall a good experience.

“Disappointing and very short evening”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

On Friday night we met friends from out of town to celebrate a birthday at Stage West. The food was very good, the play Sexy Laundry was okay and the service was adequate. However, we left extremely disappointed. The play was promoted as 90 minutes. It started at 7:45, and by our watches, was over at 9:05, with no intermission. Why is there no intermission during this play? At intermission, the servers can replenish coffee or drinks, and guests can go get desserts and visit a bit. We were served coffee before the play started, but since we still had wine and drinks, it became cold before we had a chance to drink it. We were never offered coffee again.

As soon as the play was over, our server deposited our bill on the table, without asking if we would like anything else. We felt we should leave, as the staff was busy cleaning up, and within 15 minutes there were only 3 or 4 tables of patrons left. With a bill of over $800 for 6 people, the evening should not be over at 9:05. Patrons should not feel like they have to leave, because they are in the way. Had it been after 11 PM, I would not blame the staff for wanting to clean up and go home, but really, 9:05 PM?

We were very disappointed with the way the evening went, and will likely not return. Why should we pay that kind of money for an evening out, and have it end shortly after 9 PM?

“Wonderful Night Out”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

We have seasons tickets to Stage West and it always means a fun night out.

The food is stellar- for a buffet, its incredible. Generally it's hot, and the carving station is always tasty.

The plays are usually excellent- ranging from comedies, to musicals, to musical revues. Saw The Marvelous Wonderettes last time- excellent acting by 4 ladies who were onstage the whole show. Absolutely fantastic.

I think my all-time favorite would have to be 39 Steps from last season- I didn't stop laughing the whole show.

If you are looking for a great night out- buy the tickets. And then, buy season's tickets- means you always have a date night every couple months.
