    Great place for amazing food. The ambience is perfect for a date or group get together. Mine and my friends' usual go to spot. Unfortunately, we've all noticed that the service has gone down hill! The servers used to be extremely friendly and nice. These days, they seem to have an attitude. Not sure what's happened. Go for the food and ambience. Be prepared for unfriendly service.

    My daughter and I shared the Dine Out Lamb and Ribeye meals. Enjoyed the ribeye and mashed potatoes but the lamb shank had a spice that wasnt as appealing. Prawn appetizer only had 3 prawns. Too bad there wasnt an alternative to the dessert choices that were gluten free. Were given ice cream as a 65th birthday dessert alternative : ( For the price we would have expected something more outstanding Nice to come on a Tuesday when the ambience was quiet.

    It was our first time dining at West Oak. We took part in Dine Out Vancouver. Great food! We had the garden salad, Maui ribs, risotto, salmon, key Lime pie and cookie dessert. Everything was tasty and not overly filling. A few minutes after we were sat down, we were asked if it was OK to move us to another table to accommodate a larger party. We were more than willing. We were surprised with a couple of drinks. That was kind of them. Our server, Jason was so efficient and friendly! He provided awesome service, and he was super busy with his section. You would not have known because he was so calm and kind the entire time. As soon as we would finish a dish he would immediately be at our table cleaning it off and refilling our drinks or replacing cutlery. We had a pleasurable experience! Thank you :)

    The food was amazing and so tasty. We got the tomahawk platter and it was outstanding. Of course we ended the night with their famous fresh baked cookies. West Oak is one of my favourite restaurants. Thank you to the chefs as well, they were so friendly from behind the counter. Great job you guys! :)

    The food, for the most part, was average, which did not match the cost. For example, the kale that accompanied both types of risotto was terrible. It was like putting warm, wet paper in your mouth. Zero flavor and soggy. The gnocchi that came with the catch of the day was not enjoyable. The gnocchi was tough, and the sauce could not be identified- but it was not nice and indeed not a good pairing with fish!

    We were seated quickly. The drinks came fast and the main course soon after. Chicken dish was good and market price ling cod was delicious. However, dishes tasted similar to what you would get at similar priced restaurants like Earls so Value-wise was okay.

    One of my go-to places for happy hour. Food and drinks are consistent and service is great! Opt for the outside area - it’s beautiful when the weather is good and warm and cozy (heated) in the colder months. I have a vegan friend who joins me for happy hour from time to time and they always accommodate her requirements/request as well!

    The food here is consistently very good! Sablefish is consistently excellent, for example, and cocktails are on point. They don’t have highly experienced wait staff, but they do a good enough job for Yaletown standards. The ambiance would be really nice in the restaurant if it wasn’t for the lounge, which can sometimes make the whole restaurant feel like a sports bar. They should decide if they want to be a high-quality restaurant experience or keep the big screen TVs.

    Lively room with high ceilings and slightly clubby vibe attracts a late 20's and up crowd. Our table loved our Chinois Prawns, Truffle Fries, and Caesar Salad appetizers and our Truffle Mushroom Risotto, Maple Soy Sablefish mains (Sablefish was outstanding). Service felt rushed but otherwise ok.

    We had a very enjoyable evening. Our waitress was excellent and helped in make our evening a lot of fun. The food was very good. My wife had the muscles and frites. We have to say the fries were not the best we have had by quite a bit maybe a refresher on making french fries would be in order. I would have to question why there would be a need for three hostesses at the door seems like an error in staffing. All in all, we did have a good time and I would recommend this restaurant to others. Definitely a great place for people watching!

    The restaurant was crowded and loud. The Open Table booking listed the dress code as smart casual but there were people strolling in wearing sweat pants, hooded sweaters and ball caps. There were some noisy Holiday parties going on and people in these large groups were walking around the restaurant with their drink in hand. The food was excellent and our server was very attentive and polite. The food prices were good value, the drinks were overpriced.
