Great food and service but wish they had beer on tap.
Wonderful menu with some very interesting starters
Good suggestion for wine` service was so pleasant
Only critism is upon arrival with a reservation on Open Table - no one cared !!Had to ask to be seated or would still be waiting. Next day women phoned me to ask why we had not used our reservation!!! Where was she or anyone else thereto say hello.
In spite of this will definately return for a lovely dinner
Based on various reviews and high ratings, we decided to give the restaurant a try. We were in town from the SF Bay area. We were a group of 4. At first, I found the restaurant to be noisy and due to the tables being close together, some people talk louder than others. I finally became desensitized to the surrounding noise. Our server was excellent with providing us good information on food items and recommendations when we asked. I started with the Caesar salad - the lettuce was very fresh and the dressing was not overwhelmed in taste or amount. There were no anchovies, which was slightly disappointing. The salad was average - not memorable. For my entree, I chose the 8 oz tenderloin. The meat was perfectly cooked to my liking of medium, it was probably one of the best steaks I have ever had - it was beyond tender, and tasteful - memorable! The asparagus that came with the steak was fantastic. I'm not really a fan of asparagus, but this was delicious. My husband had the sable fish which he said was memorable. However for him, the most memorable was the triple-cooked fries. He talked about them all week!! All in all, we had a very enjoyable evening, and I would highly recommend West Oak restaurant. When we are back in Vancouver, it is on our list.
Delicious meal! We went with children and they allowed us to customise a pasta entree for them. Steak was delicious. Sable fish was outstanding!
Food was bellow average but service and ambiance were fine.
Risotto and lamb dishes. Nicely prepared but somewhat bland. Needed seasoning!
My husband had the lamb shank which he really enjoyed. I had the hamburger and it was okay. A bit on the dry side though. The only real complaint was it was too dark. Couldn’t see the menu and couldn’t see our food when it came.
As usual, we weren't disappointed. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I ordered the scallops with risotto and usually (at other restaurants) it's fishy or dry. This was neither! Sweet and succulent! Id order it again in a heartbeat!
Thank you for a great Father’s Day meal spent with family and friends!
Food was good but nothing exceptional. I fell like I could have eaten very similar items in a number of other restaurants nearby.
Our server was perfect! He had great timing. Attentive but not hovering. The manager also came by to see how our dinner and evening was. We thought that was very nice. The food was great. We ordered the Chinois prawns for our appetizer. For our mains, the lamb shank, sablefish, and salmon. The salmon was tasty but just a bit overdone. We were there celebrating a birthday and they brought a complimentary candle lit dessert. Love the food there and this restaurant is a staple on our list of restaurants.
Perfect birthday celebration dinner! Food was good. Service was exceptional.
We will be back!
Our waitress was great, the food was great, and the music was awesome! Will definitely be coming here again!
Great service! This was for our anniversary and they treated us so well. We were given complimentary bubbly and dessert.
After wanting to try West Oak for several months now, I finally made it there on a Saturday night. Place was busy, and the music was loud. I started my dinner with a garden salad, however when it was brought to me it had dressing when I had requested dressing on the side. No big deal, so I thought. I asked if it was possible to get a new salad, which caused the most ghastly expression I have ever seen at a restaurant. Nonetheless, the salad was replaced. For the main, I ordered their burger which ended up being completely impossible to eat. I have never had amy meat served so burnt, dry, and in capable of being chewed without a struggle. When the server asked if I was finished with my meal, I highlighted that I could not eat anymore because the mail was not very good. Again, a disgusted
expression came from this second server who did not even acknowledge my complaint. He took the food away and brought the bill. Good news is, I reviewed the bill I noticed that the main was deducted. Needless to say, I will not be going back and suggest you don’t waste your time either.
We reserved more than a week ahead to get a table of six and were squeezed into a table for 4 with 2 added chairs. The service made up for the ambience which was too loud and boisterous for chatting with friends with two big groups on either side wildly carousing. Food was decently prepared but pretty standard fare like most of the local chains. Admittedly, we are not the target customer and won't be coming back.
Nice restaurant. Was a bit disappointed we would only have brunch. Omelette was a bit dry, my husband loved his eggs Benny.
Service and atmosphere was great, the waiter ‘Greg’ was very helpful and a top bloke.
I had high hopes for this spot! Great atmosphere and drinks. Food was very over cooked, the crab cakes were so tough I could barely cut through them with a knife and the calamari was like rubber. Portions were smaller than most upscale restaurants and our server seemed annoyed and rude. We ended up leaving and having dinner somewhere else after appetizers.
This hidden neighborhood gem executes really well. Fresh ingredients that are well balanced and perfectly accommodated. Service was great. The venue can be a bit on the louder side, especially on weekends, but otherwise the ambience is quite comfortable.
Very nice. Our guests enjoyed it! Food was great and the service was wonderful.
Honestly excellent service. Friendly servers who took the time to talk. Excellent drinks and spots. Happy hour so best deal for great food that I have had on the city. Will be back
Good Food and service was wonderful. We were a group of 5 that were going to a concert and the cook and service staff made sure we were able to meet our time deadline. West Oak is a go to for good food in a warm, inviting room.
Booked this place for Mothers Day with wife and kids. I have never been here before but always wanted to try.
We arrived for our 5:15pm booking and were seated immediately. The place was not busy at the time as it was still early.
Pleasantly surprised that they still had "Happy Hour" for Mothers Day on a Sunday and we took a chance on some appys. Wow, were we happy we came earlier as these were 50% off + regular portions.
The Mussels + Fries, Prosciutto and the Calamari were all execllent in quality and freshness. I am not a big mussel fan but found myself chowing down multiples as they were fresh, not frozen.
We were probably 75% full by the time we had to order entree.
I just had the lamb shank and the meat fell right off the bone. It is very "gamey" but that's why I ordered lamb.
The desert we had was the chocolate gelato which was freshly made - with actually melted chocolate.
Very impressed with the quality of ingredients, temperature, taste and presentation of the food. The service was also top notch as we did not have to ask for water or refills.
We are already planning to visit again when we are in the area.
The food and drinks were delicious. I just found the service to be slow. Especially considering the restaurant was only 1/3 full.
Birthday dinner for my wife on a Saturday night. Once it got to 10pm the place practically turns from a nice restaurant to a loud bar. Quite an obnoxious crowd appeared behind our table at 10pm on the dot. Before that though the food and service were excellent. Just try to dine and be out before 10pm on a weekend night.
This was my first visit to West Oak and i was pleasantly surprised. We were looking for a place to go and have a few drinks before the Pink Concert and sometimes it's hard to find a place that will take a reservation on an event day. Well West Oak did and we were a party of 6. We came at around the happy hour time started and i was very happy with not only the drinks on their happy hour but also the food items. We picked a few things to share and enjoyed some Coronas on the patio. A great day! I will definitely recommend this place to my friends.
Went for an early Mother’s day brunch. Service and atmosphere was great. Food was average (but only had items off the brunch menu). Will have to try their dinner menu next time
It's wonderful experience. Nice food, friendly staff. Awesome.
Food and service were excellent but the restaurant was very noisy and it was hard to hear people at our table without shouting or leaning forward.
Excellent standout service! Steak done to perfection. Appetizers were creative and well sized. Wine list was satisfactory but not expansive. Good selection of local options. I would return!
Autanding food from beginning to end! I highly recommend This place. I can not wait to return to this restaurant!! Also, the atmosphere is classy and fun!
Food was great - the scallops and sablefish were excellent. The service was great; nice waitress and attentive staff. Noise level started getting loud just as we were leaving - I was glad that we had booked early so we were able to enjoy our conversation and visit before it got too noisy. Overall a great dining experience. I would go again and would also recommend it to others. Cheers!
Peppe provided incredible service!
Beautiful & trendy restaurant. The vibe was a mix between LA & Vegas. The service was phenomenal and the food was absolutely delicious. I’ll definitely be dining at West Oak again when I come back to Vancouver.
Great service. The waiter knew his stuff and was quick to spot that I wanted to pay the bill for our table while pretending to go to the washroom. His coffee recommendation was also spot on.
I had the sable fish and it was one of the best meals I have had in a long time.
Too noisy to have any decent conversation. Otherwise food, value and service met my expectations.
Nice atmosphere, service and food. The building foot traffic to and from the nightclub in the back became rather distracting; they should create if possible a different entrance. Also, who may have been a DJ kept coming out to fraternize with the cooks and waitresses, which wasn’t very professional. That club component needs rethinking in my opinion. Otherwise, a nice quality dinner.
This is our favourite restaurant in Yaletown. Always delicious food with nice presentation. Portions seem to be just right. Great varied menu. Good wine selection. Very good, attentive and timely service. Was a pleasure to have Tyler as our server.
One criticism is the couch cushions are too soft which makes sitting at that side of the table too low for the person. Perhaps it’s time to get them re-stuffed or a new couch :) Otherwise, excellent as always!
Had a reservation but didn't end up getting seated until half an hour later. Food was excellent, and service was good after we had our table.
