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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The food and the ambiance were both really great! I had the tofu and quinoa bowl, and I’m pretty particular on how my tofu is cooked, and it was cooked perfectly. They had this heated outdoor patio was really nice to sit in during a sunny but cold day! I’ll definitely be going back there soon.

West Oak is our new favourite place to eat in Vancouver. Every dish we ordered was perfectly prepared and fantastically flavoured. These guys are doing it right! Skip the Yaletown Keg next door and go one door down to West Oak, you won't be disappointed.

Great food at reasonable prices. Service was not great. I expected better service levels. Constantly looking for my server. Also, my knapkin feel on the floor and my server just picked it up and gave it to me without offering me a clean new one.

West Oak has a nice ambiance and is good for social or business meetings, and it has a good vibe. The food was hit and miss.

My main course was the lemongrass Sablefish, and it was delicious. Wonderfully prepared, right temperature, and great sides.

The beet and burrata salad was a disappointment, especially for $18. Just based on the name one would expect those two pieces to be the centerpiece of the plate, but this was basically a spring mix with chunks of beets and a lump of Burrata. There was no sense of artistry or presentation.

Also, burrata should be soft, creamy, and luxurious, and is generally to be served at room temperature. This burrata was small, cold, hard, and felt like they were just checking the box to get it on the plate. Maybe I would pay $9 for that salad and think it was just OK, but it certainly doesn't justify its current prices.

So, would I go back? Yes, its a nice place, but I'd ask first about preparation before ordering.

Happy hour menu was good value. Seafood Salad was delicious. Lobster tagliatelle ended up being served with fettuccine noodles. They were undercooked and made fora disappointing entree. No quality check by the staff until after we ate everything. Bar seating along the wall is busy with traffic and the door to the patio was open a lot so it was very cool at times.

The food was amazing and unreal. Tasty flavours in every bite. The atmosphere was romantic and comfortable.

It was also my bf’s birthday, they were so sweet to give him a birthday treat with a candle.

Will definitely refer friends to come here.
