The food and service was amazing! I would suggest changing the music as the loud dance music really didn't suit the atmosphere.
This place is amazing!! Great, friendly staff. Food is delicious! Amazing atmosphere and ambiance!! We got the calamari, the shrimp, hummus, lamb and it all tasted spectacular! Great drinks too
Absolutely amazing food. Such a hidden gem this establishment is. The service was 5/5! I love this little place. Can’t wait to visit again.
Reservation was for 9:15 we waited outside for 45 minutes before they sat us at 10:00.. Server showed up to our table one time the whole night we had to go to the bar to get the bill.
Quiet on the patio. The entrees were nothing special, I can cook as well at home.
Service was a little slow but the restaurant was busy and a big table came in celebrating a baby shower. Our appetizers and entree came at the right time then there was a lull where we thought we had been forgotten about. Our server was very apologetic and did her best.
The music was a bit too loud for us as we are older and can’t hear as well as we used to.
Loved the ambience though and the food was amazing. This is our 2nd visit to this restaurant and we will definitely come back.
Loved those chinois prawns, the salmon and those yummy cookies!!
Food was excellent value for the money. Portions were good and food was well presented.
Server seemed a bit pre-occupied. Gave me the wrong wine and we hardly saw him but it was busy.
Food was excellent. Ordered the sable fish, 14 oz ribeye, Caesar salad and spicy shrimp. Our server was on point with everything. Friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Food was absolutely delicious. The only thing was one of the managers dipping into the bar condiments with his hand to eat an olive. Would highly recommend.
Great food, great atmosphere!
Love the cauliflower soup! Absolutely delicious 🤤
Excellent food and service. Absolutely recommended
We sat outside under the covered and heated patio which was really pleasant. super cool atmosphere!
Lovely restaurant. The food was excellent. I had the salmon dinner which came with potatoes and tasty vegetables. There was also a delicious sauce. My partner had the lamb shank. Crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. Also with gnocchis and fresh vegetables. Great service too.
Don’t recommended, it is nothing special. There are much better restaurants in Vancouver for the same price.
It was lovely
Nice ambience with great service and good food
Always a great happy hour with a variety of delicious appies and great G&T's all reasonably priced. The happy hour red wine is not so good but the fries are the best! And just an odd comment that our knives and forks kept falling off our plates as they are pretty heavy while the side plates are not flat or that big to rest a knife and fork firmly it seemed! Weird, but all good other than that.
We had the Salmon and the Chicken !! Both were very delicious and on the top the drinks were great. Great vibe location for a Friday night dinner.
Service was excellent! They didn’t rush us and came back to check on our table often but not too much. Very nice server who helped me get a stain out of my shirt! Food was amazing and ambiance was just perfect for friends catching up.
Food was creative - avocado hummous was delicious. The Wednesday wine was great!
Service was adequate.
Overall enjoyed but wouldn’t recommend or return with the many other options we know.
Amazing! It’s so hard to find great service these days. The food was fresh and delicious, and our server Dom was really nice. Everyone worked together as a team, all were so attentive. Loved it and will definitely be back!
I went with my family for my dad’s birthday and we had a good time! The server was kind and prompt and the ambience was chill. It wasn’t as loud as I thought the reviews would be. For tapas we ordered the chinois prawn and beef carpaccio which were both well enjoyed by everyone. The prawns were very flavourful and the carpaccio had complex, full flavours that paired super well with the toasted bread and sweet balsamic glaze. As a side, we also ordered the truffle fries—nice crisp and very delicious.
For entrees, we ordered 4 to share. The star was definitely the maple soy sablefish. 9/10, It was cooked to perfection, so tender and juicy. The flavours really came together for this dish. The truffle mushroom risotto was average; the truffle and mushrooms did not come out and it was definite not not creamy enough, 6.5/10. Next up, we had the bolognese pasta. It was better seasoned than the risotto, but not saucy enough. These two missed the mark a little, also a 6.5/10. Finally, we ordered the 14oz ribeye medium rare. It came almost well done so we asked for it to be redone. The steak looked cooked properly this time, but the flavours also missed the mark and there weren’t sauces that could come with the steak, 6/10.
If you go, definitely recommend trying the seafood, fish, and tapas.
Overall I still had a good time with the family.
We had an amazing dinner, with great service and atmosphere. Can't wait to go back!
My husband and I had Yousef as our server. He was fantastic. Most definitely will be coming back and requesting him and table 14!!
As always, the Moscow Mules were "kickin" and the Prawns are to die for!!! Our bartender/server was great.....and kept all we needed coming!!!
My "go to" spot in Yaletown to make my guests happy!!!
Will be back!!
Great food, however service was not the greatest. Waitress was unpleasant and made some off hand comments.
We arrived at 6 on a Sunday, before the restaurant was filled. Service was prompt and good during the meal. For us the problem was that later during the meal the management turned up the volume of the music (which had a loud beat). They did accommodate our request to lower the volume somewhat. For us it was still too loud and we hurried to finish our meal and retreat. While the food was good, we would warn friends about the potential for loud music.
My family took me for my Birthday dinner. We are a semi regular customer and usually have fantastic meals at West Oak. The appies were spot on as was my sons Roast Chicken, my wife’s Salmon (great as always). The roast lamb shank was not what I was hoping for. It was not as tender or as flavorful as I would have expected. The risotto was OK but lacked seasoning / salt. The service was good as always but the noise level due to a larger table of very loud and rude younger folks basically was a little off putting.
We will be back but not ordering the lamb shank again.
West Oak has proven always a great spot so one so so dish doesn’t nudge me away.
The prawns, beef carpaccio, & lamb lollipops were outstanding. Very happy we tried this place. We will certainly be back!
I would highly recommend!!! Everything from the food, the service, the decor, the location, the ambience and the energy was outstanding!
West Oak has done a good job of implementing measures to manage Covid without ruining the ambience.
As far as the quality of food, it was very good. I was not blown away, but the quality of food was reasonable for the price and given the Yaletown location.
our waiter, Keagan was outstanding. the food on the other hand was disappointing
The food was great, but the service might need to be improved.
A great patio happy hour meal over all. Just that our table was right by the checkin area and there was no plexiglass separating. We moved our table a foot away from the checkin area ourselves as people in the checkin area were talking without masks… The restaurant should really put a plexiglass there…
Will be back. Great place.
Ordered the scallops and side dish of tagliatelle pomodoro and apple tartlet for dessert.
Scallops were cold , server was kind enough to remove from bill.
Pasta was good, hot and tasty
Tartlet was ice cold internally, server was kind enough to take it off the bill as well.
Great attentive service overall!
Fantastic server whose name I forgot to note but he was great!
All protein was dry and overdone
Great food and service. The craft cocktails were delicious.
Note - this space draws to a young, stylish crowd (20-30s) At 50+ we were the oldest people by far. As Yaletown inhabitants of the early 90s this brought about a lot of nostalgia.
