I wish I could say I loved this place, however our service was not great. Our server looked like a slob with a dirty shirt and dirty pants as if he’d been wearing them for a few shifts. He kept pulling his mask off so that while taking our order and serving our food, his nose was always exposed and was was way too close to us for not having his face properly covered. I was very put off by this server- it was a Saturday brunch res and not that busy, but he screwed up different tables’ orders and was just quite disgusting to look at.
The food was good, the chicken and waffles takes forever though (two tables ordered after us, got their food and left before we got our order served). The benny’s on other tables looked great, unfortunately I won’t be going back to this place. Considering there was a Covid case there just the other day, I felt the server or restaurant wasn’t taking proper precautions.
** A note to the restaurant; during a pandemic you shouldn’t be making people at the table share condiments.
Perfectly medium poached eggs. Best we’ve had in Yaletown!
good ambience, good appetizer.
pasta was overcooked and clumpy, so they offered free dessert which was peanut butter chocolate icecream, but it was very salty.. could not eat any more than one bite..
music is very loud, understaffed, had to wait for a long time to grab the cheque.
Drinks/cocktails were nice and the food was decent but the brunch menu was a little small. However, COVID likely affected the menu size.
The food and service are consistently good at West Oak. What is, unfortunately, so off-putting at this same restaurant is the volume of bad music. I don't know why it has to be so loud and the music itself is also very much not to my liking. I've gotten to where I'll only eat at West Oak if we can get a seat outside (where we would much rather tolerate the sirens, car horns and pedestrian noises). Diners often want to chat over their meals and it is essentially impossible to do so in the dining room on some days. My belief is that the music should be low volume and in the background --- not distracting and uncomfortable. So, our routine now is walking by West Oak and when the loud music is blaring and the patio looks full we keep on walking looking for another place to eat.
It honestly looked better in pictures. It was a big space with plexiglass yet they still sat people close together
One of the best places to eat/drink in Yaletown. Best service in Vancouver. Great place to take a date, long time partner, or just meet up with friends and family.
Took my parents for dinner we are in our 50's they in their 70's and we felt very old lol but the food was great the service was great and we would definitely go back!
Good food, good drinks, good service. Overall good experience. Highly recommend
It was great the setting, the food, the place. As for the service it wasn’t good at all! Waited so long to order and even pay the bill, server wasn’t so friendly.
The food was amazing!! Fresh out of the kitchen, it was hot still once it hit our table!! The only downside was after we went home, I realized that on the West Oak Instagram they advertised “complimentary mimosa with brunch”, we went for brunch, my boyfriend and I both ordered a mimosa and paid full price for it. We didn’t know that it was a deal till we left so it’s unfortunate that the staff didn’t go or that for us. None the less it was a overall good experience!
First brunch since COVID started. Missed this place. Food excellent as always. I think the portions are larger than I remember.
See you soon!
Great service! Shrimp appetizer is amazing.
Had an issue with the host that checked us in, told her we are willing to wait for the big corner booth seat if she could thoroughly cleaned the table and seat especially during these covid times we thought that would be fair to ask. She cleans the table lightly but completely neglects the seats! There were food crumbs left behind from the previous guests with water or alcohol droplets as well. I then reached out politely for her to clean the seats to which she ONLY wipes a fifth of the whole seat and then dismisses us to seat the next group who were waiting. So this is now my third time asking for help and we had another server come this time and helped to make sure the seats were sanitized and dry for sitting. All in all the food was amazing but the start of our night kinda took away from the experience I planned for my GF birthday dinner
Great experience and friendly service! Food was to die for, definitely coming back again!
Food was really good, portions were a tiny bid smaller than an average restaurant but was really great. The music was good if you like a younger vibe and the servers were really fast
Firstly I waited for almost 30 minutes in front of the restaurant (no one was at the front-door). The server was pushy and what my friend later described as "too in his head" (the restaurant was far from busy). I ordered Fresh Wild Scallops with sweet pea, and the scallop was way too overcooked and burnt on one side. But the sides and cocktails were delicious. Overall, it was an okay experience.
Enjoyable, tasty and relaxing. Decent service but had to wait for plates and cutlery.
Went for Happy Hour with my friend as was very impressed. The food was delicious. The Calamari was my favorite with the Prawns as a very close second.
Great spot for brunch! Highly recommend the tofu quinoa salad.......
Be aware. Not all servers wear their masks properly including the gentleman who looks to be the floor manager for the evening. He covered his mouth but not nose. The restaurant is cramped. Food is good as usual.
Excellent service, food undercooked would go again 💕
Happy hour is a great option which reflects the same menu at reduced prices. Chinois prawns a must.
It's always one of my favorite restaurants. Service was slow this time but likely due to the new Covid measures they have to go through. The food is always outstanding.
We tried this restaurant for the first time for a birthday dinner. The cocktails and the appetizers (chinois prawns and ahi tuna) were fantastic but all of our entrees were disappointing. I had the rack of lamb and wouldn’t order it again. The restaurant is quite loud and dark with a good atmosphere. Our server Youssef was excellent. Very attentive and friendly.
We loved their patio. Absolutely excellent food. The sablefish was delicious. Service was great too. The restaurant has a beautiful ambiance inside too. Nice selection of wine and many food choices for everybody on the menu too. I would highly recommend West Oak.
Wonderful father's day dinner! We all enjoyed our food, outstanding drinks!
Perfect brunch! Excellent service and fabulous food.
We reserved a table for our date night and were seated at a high top table in the bar. The food & service were good but it was very loud and busy around our table.
Good options for a pescatarian like me.
Very enjoyable night,great food,good atmosphere nice to be back out after COVID
Such good food, such a great vibe , great service
Good food and service. Good atmosphere. Reasonable prices.
Overall a lovely dinner:; however, we found the cocktails to be over-priced for small serving size.
It was our wedding anniversary which we did mention upon booking. But there no zero acknowledgment of this when we arrived. Was a bit disappointing in that respect. Food and service overall was good.
It’s different now with physical distancing but still great food and service. I miss the busy ambience but grateful for their efforts to be open while keeping everyone safe.
Took over one hour to get our food. At least it tasted good.
Went there for lunch , great patio , excellent service , fantastic salads , prawns in appetizers were delicious
It was my first time at this restaurant. Staff was friendly and attentive. Food was very good.
First time there! Great food! Lovely server.
