I normally stay away from chicken when I eat out but their roasted chicken was the best I've had in a very long time. Everything from service to food was great. Would definitely recommend.

I chose West Oak randomly and it exceeded my expectations. Food, service and atmosphere were all great and great value. It is the best calamari that I have had in Vancouver. I will be returning.

Steak was chewy and I'm not even convinced it was the cut I ordered. If it was, it was not high quality.

Kitchen and waiter hurried our meal. 3 people-appetizers and entrees served within 30 minutes of us getting there. We were out of the restaurant in under an hour. Not a very enjoyable or relaxing experience.

WAY too noisy for conversation, although that did not seem to annoy other customers. With 2 very pleasant young individuals assigned to our table, the service was poor--did not even get around to refill water glasses. Love the food, but will not go back.

Pretty good! The steak is very delicious, and I like the salad which is not as oiled as provided in some restaurants. The taste of mussels is wonderful but the quantity is a little bit small, icecream is very smooth but not so sweat. Overall, nice. I’m sure to come again later

Our party of 4 had a great time! Our food was delicious and drinks were made perfectly!
I found staff at the door were very young and disorganized. They spent lots of time looking into the mirrors adjusting their breasts and their short skirts. I found it unprofessional and annoying as many female staff did it throughout our stay.

Great experience from beginning to end! Our server was great, we had both the bar manager and general manager come by to see how we were doing. The team was very engaging, food was top notch and delectable. My children had a great time and as a bonus, the team brought them out some freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, which was icing on the cake. We will continue to come back!

Unfortunately we were not very happy with the service. They seemed to be inexperienced as things were forgotten and it was very difficult to get their attention. We were totally forgotten about once food arrived. Also, my food would have been good if it was hot, it was not even close.

It is the third time we came back for the Tomahawk steak, and again it did not fail to impress us. The waitress this time made our party of 6 even more pleasant and enjoyable, she was extremely attentive from making sure our wine glass are never empty and our table is always clean. We finished off with the fresh baked cookies and full body expresso. Love it.

Food was awesome but the music was a bit elevator. We also were charged for cookies as a dessert which we had thought was complimentary.

Our dinners and happy hour appies were very yummie.

We went for lunch and they had the $12 menu. The food quality was terrible . I always go for dinner and know for sure it wasn't anything close to what you get at regular price . I was very disappointed . A good restouent should not lower quality for price.

Chinois prawns outstanding. Enjoyed it so much came back the next night, but unfortunately our last night in Vancouver. Food was delicious and the staff very attentive. The only thing lacking was Australian red wine by the glass, but I am bias.
