Repairs were done at the front door and it was scary to go in with a stepladder and wires hanging around.

We arrived for our 7:45pm reservations and were immediately sat at a side table to have a beverage. Unfortunately due to miscommunication we never had a chance to be seated at our table. However, the management handled the situation immaculately well. I was incredibly impressed with the professionalism of both our server and the manager. Although we did have the chance to enjoy the entree, we will absolutely be back very soon to enjoy more of what West Oak has to offer.

Very busy place so we were seated at the bar. Very tight seating there so we thought this could be ‘one of those night’, but we couldn’t have been more wrong. We had a great view of the kitchen and the chefs at work - art in motion. Food was absolutely incredible and the waiter was perfect. All in all one of the best dining experiences we have ever had.

PS. Prawn appetizer was ridiculous.

Have enjoyed this restaurant for business lunch in the past however tried it for dinner this past weekend and was quite shocked by the difference.
Lots of shady characters, service was sub par and the food was just ok. Cops did a walk around more than once during our meal.
Quite disappointed in what was meant to be a really fun night out.

Amazing service, attentive, informative, and personable waiter. The sablefish and prawns I had were immaculately created. The only criticism would be that there was a bit too much sauce on the prawns, and unfortunately the patio was being renovated, which wasn’t the prettiest of sights. Another small thing was the lack of space near the bar. It was a very tight area, and not as delightful to look at as the main dining area. Other than those small small details, the restaurant made my night quite enjoyable, and I was not disappointed.

The server kept trying to take away our dishes before we finished eating and it felt like we were being rushed. After 3 times of circling back they finally asked us to move to the bar area as a reservation has been waiting on the table for quite some time.

I would have rather been told up front and be given options early on instead of constantly being interrupted.

The food was delicious and the happy hour menu was a great value. Unfortunately, the calimari was cold and the mussels were undercooked. The flavours were there though.

We had an excellent server who made great recommendations and was attentive to our table. The restaurant was lively and food was good.

We note that the restaurant vibe changed at around 9pm with a younger crowd, louder music and more of a lounge vs restaurant feel.

We loved everything except the noise level. Couldn’t hear each other or the waiter. Way too loud. Not a fault of the restaurant per se. Not recommended for a date night at a busy hour unless you want to stare at each other and smile or yell at each other lol

We chose West Oak restaurant after searching the internet for farm to table restaurants in Yaletown. Immediately upon walking in you felt like you were in a cozy environment. Our server was fantastic and the food was outstanding ... flavourful, piping hot, visually pleasing ... we enjoyed every bite. Will definitely go back when we’re in the area and would recommend West Oak to anyone asking.

I checked out this restaurant based on the recommendation of a friend. The atmosphere was nice and the staff was very friendly and responsive. We ordered from the taste of yaletown menu. I had the steak tartare which was very nice and the cauliflower steak for my main course. I noticed a few "moldy" tasting bites on the cauliflower towards the end of my meal, which was a real disappointment. Otherwise the food seemed pretty good. Not sure I would go back based on the food.
