The second floor continues to be very loud.... even with half occupancy. It’s hard to have a conversation.
One guest didn’t feel well after the oysters.
First floor bar is great.

Food was outstanding! Service was attentive but not overly so. Must try small plates - the steak tartare and the hummus.

I do enjoy this restaurant, however the second floor is so loud and quite frankly has lack luster ambience. First floor is super charming and obviously has a great vibe with the bar and you can hear the people at your table. Wine list needs work. Food was delicious all around. Please work on the second floor!

First time having dinner, after several amazing weekend brunches, and it was fantastic. From the focaccia app to the pizza to the insane steak with MARROW BUTTER...everything was great. Service and Kitchen were on point! Well done

We were so excited to try this restaurant but was unhappy with the brunch selections. Portions for brunch are extremely small for the price. Very few vegetarian options and no vegan options. We won’t be returning unfortunately.

Food took a while and each meal for 4 people arrived at different times. Scallops were not well cleaned, initial bite had sand, and legs on prawns got missed with sauce and difficult to eat. Was over $200 for 4 people, was not reflective of service and quality.

Do yourself a favor, order the steak. It’s shareable between two people and will be the best you’ve ever had. Also, the beef tartar is also a 10/10, along with the smoked trout dip.

Service was wonderful, the bottle of wine i ordered however was not amazing, I’ve had better pinots and for $67 bucks it wasn’t worth it...i won’t be doing that again.

I have now been to your restaurant 5 times. And everytime I’ve been up stairs really would like to get a table downstairs feels cold upstairs. I’m Gluten free as I’m celiac and the menu needs to be Marked can be gluten free the last time I was in I was told the potatoe dish was ok for me to eat on Friday night I was told it wasn’t gluten free and it’s cook in the same oil as other food. Thank you.

An exceptional new spot in Ellicottville. Taking reservations is a huge plus! Food and service are great. Ambience will come along with time. That's the only nitpicky thing. A little too "cool" , but definitely not a drawback at all.

They take reservations which is HUGE in Ellicottville, the ambiance is fresh and the vibe is exciting. So it's worth trying again, even though my first experience was less than favorable. The squash and kale salads were delicious so my group had high hopes for our meals but then the inconsistency and disappointment began. We all got burgers which consisted of 2 skinny patties and lots of good stuff on the patties, but why ask how we want our burgers cooked and then bring them all out well done and gray because they are too thin to cook any other way?? It was really tasteless meat. But worse than the burger was the noice level upstairs. My apple watch reported 85 decibels which is the danger zone for causing ear damage. Apart from not being able to talk amongst our table of 6, the noise level was deafening. I will only return if I can sit on the first floor. Thank you West Rose for coming to Ellicottville with something fresh and new but please do something to absorb the noise on the 2nd floor. I will try pizza and salad the next time......

We were seated late. Service was very slow and our food came out after tables that were seated after us. Cauliflower, kale, pizza and steak got thumbs up but chicken cassoulet and burger were bad. Wine was a decent value. ROOM CRAZY LOUD!

Hands-down, the best menu, service, enjoyable atmosphere I have experienced in the last four years. The best restaurant on the East Coast.

If you like big cities; I suggest you stay there because this is the true modern American charm Living and breathing in EllicottVille New York - 2020

Food was delicious. The place is beautiful. I had reserved a table for my husband and I. Left a note expressing it was our anniversary, and that I'd like to be seated somewhere calm. It was very full and loud when we arrived, and we were seated right in the middle, very close to other people. I was kinda disappointed at that. The staff was very nice and approachable, but our conversations were often interrupted by them wanting to re fill our glasses with water. Parking is really tricky and frustrating to find around. Id defintely love to come back more prepared, now that I know these things. Food is absolutely worth it.

West Rose is a great addition to the list of restaurants in Ellicottville. Food is great, drink selection is nice and the service is at its best when you are downstairs. I’ve eaten at West Rose about 10 times and have been put upstairs twice. The upstairs is much louder and the service is a 1 out of 5. It stinks because I know how good of an experience West Rose can be if you dine on the 1st floor.

The food was wonderful. We were with a large group so we did plates to share. We tried almost everything on the menu and the hardest part was picking what we liked the best. Everything was amazing and the service was great! This place is a must go.

We get to make it a two for one each year. 43rd wedding anniversary wrapped into Valentine's Day. Dinner at West Rose in Ellicottville was great! Jesse, the manager started us off with complimentary glasses of Prosecco and ended with a delicious coffee tiramisu! Thank you West Rose for your shining hospitality in lovely surroundings. I didn't get many photos of the establishment itself, so you'll have to take a ride and see for yourself!

Service was terrific. Second floor was a little loud - you could’t hear conversation further than a person away from you at our table for 8. Cauliflower, pizza, and burger were amazing. Tried a few other things that weren’t so great. Would definitely go back to try again and hopefully sit on first floor to see if it was quieter!
