    Food was amazing and beyond what we expected. This will become our new go to for Happy Hour and entrees. Our waitress was the definition of best customer service. Only down-side was the hostess did not seem happy to greet us and the platter took 50 minutes from the time of ordering to it being on the table. Luckily, we had already been eating appies so we weren't hangry about the timing. We wished they served better ginger beer and the seat cushions were too soft (we sank down) so felt a little short for the table. The menu catered to various diets which was awesome. Definitely planning to be back to try their other menu choices like breakfast...or just to order two serving of the fries...

    Made a reservation for the patio as this was an option on open table. When we arrived for our reservation the girls at the front told us that you can’t reserve the patio. No apology or attempt to accommodate. Meanwhile there was a table on the patio with a ‘Reserved’ sign on it. They sat us close to the patio and said they would move us outside when a table became available. While we sat there we watched 4-5 tables be sat outside and not once came back to offer to move us outside. Please don’t have a reservation option if it isn’t available.

    I was glad that I found this restaurant to celebrate our 33rd wedding anniversary. The server, Chris, was fantastic; he was friendly and attentive. The food was tasty, and the prawn dish (Chinois prawns) that was recommended by Chris was excellent. He brought us some complimentary freshly baked cookies for our special event... nice surprise!

    This was a birthday celebration for a very dear friend. Everything was perfection. The lobster/spinach benny was fabulous with a good amount of lobster. They surprised us with six freshly baked cookies & cream because of it being a birthday. I highly recommend West Oak - we had the best server for this occasion.

    Not one to make a review but a number of thing about this place were pretty bad. We ordered three dishes but couldn’t really taste the flavours because it was so ridiculously over salted, I couldn’t quite believe it. We had beef carpaccio that would have been great if they didn’t absolutely drench it with truffle aioli and top it with flake salt. We ordered a couple of bottom shelf high balls, which tasted unusual but we didn’t say anything. The server came around and said she noticed that the syrup on the soda was gone, so if they tasted funny that was why…and then walked away. Didn’t take the drinks off our bill but rather charged us for premium liquor when the bill came. Most expensive “bottom shelf” drink I’ve ever had, on top of it tasting terrible. I know it’s pretty tough being a server so we paid and laughed it off when we left. But it seems they really don’t care, and they take advantage of you simply because it’s a popular spot in yaletown.

    The outdoor seating area was very nice. The host raised the plastic walls for a nice through breeze and the heat lamps were more than adequate to create just the right breeze and overall temperature. Food was very good. We went for brunch. The eggs benny were perfectly cooked. The patio was quiet for our 11:15 reservation and it stayed pretty quiet and uncrowded which was nice.

    We ordered the Tomahawk platter with rack of lamb, scallops, and prawns on a bed of vegetables. It was perfectly done. They said the Tomahawk was 45 oz, I suspect it was half that. Expensive but excellent.

    We had been to West oak 4-5 times prior to last night and the food has always been really good. Last night none of us were impressed. The lovely risotto dish was less tasty and more watery. The bolongnese pasta was nothing to rave about… too saucy and not tasty at all The fries were overdone The server was amazing.

    The steak and lamb rack had the exact same sides and was way over salted. I crunched on large pieces of rock salt in a few bites. Service was good and ambiance was buzzy. I like the place but the food wasn't worth what we paid.

    Had a great time celebrating my partner's birthday at West Oak. The staff were busy but still made time to accomodate each table. We even got complimentary cookies and a candle. I am definitely coming back here with people who are about to celebrate their birthdays because those cookies are to die for

    The overall experience was great. We really enjoyed the Chinois prawns. The braised lamb was good, but for the gnocchi that came with it, I've had better. Sable fish needed more flavor. Our server was great and attentive. I'd rate our experience 8/10.

    It was mediocre all around. Service polite but not particularly special. Tuna appetizer was salty and lettuce wilted. Cauliflower entree not tasty at all. I barely ate it. Salmon, which my husband ordered, was good though.
