I booked a table for 4. When we got there , they wanted to sit us at the bar since we booked through open table. We didn’t accept it and the manager helped us to get a table. But it was frustrating to deal with that ! If I wanted to sit at the bar, I would have never made a reservation

It's my third time here since West Oak renovated. I love coming here for Happy Hour and have brought 3 different groups of friends here because the food is delicious (especially the prawns), there is almost always patio seating, the prices are affordable, and the service is truly amazing and always friendly. Also it's cool that we are able to make reservations during happy hour times. Not many restaurants allow that.

Came here for my 15 year wedding anniversary. Got seated right away. Took a server 15mins to come to our table to ask what drinks we wanted. Then another 17 mins later we waved down the manager after still not receiving our drinks. She told us there was a mix up with our waiter. Took a total of 32mins to realize that we didn't even get a glass of water. This completely ruined our annvisery date. We felt being the only Indians in the restaurant at that moment we felt we were being racial discriminated.

Happy hour is a good deal as portion size for burrata/prosciutto was large although needed more bread. Hummus was a good portion size as well. Sablefish and wild scallop entrees were cooked perfectly. All the dishes were delicious. Sat on patio which was relaxing. We were shaded so not too hot. Good for special occasion dinner or casual one as well.

We had reservations for 9:30 and got a table at 10:00. I asked the waitress at least 5 times for a chair as a fourth person was joining us (we had originally made reservations for 4 people.) It also took a long time for the food to come out.

This was a very generic restaurant. The staff seems both bored and annoyed at having to serve you. The food was not inspiring at all. Our table had a combination of various items including a sable fish with salad which arguably looked the best, a Caesar salad with shrimp, a quinoa bowl with tofu and the avocado toast. So I had the avocado toast and the bread was totally soggy. Not to mention the avocado tasted so intensely of garlic and was whipped. This also included two slices of tomato and a poached egg. It is understandable why the bread was soggy. The other diners said their dishes were okay. The restaurant also did not serve latte's with alternative milk options, only dairy. Finally, back to the staff, the female servers were all in a "uniform" so to speak with consisted of a short black skirt and a white sheer blouse. My question is why are the women scantily clad but not the men? Where are the shirtless men serving me in a restaurant.

Not sure. It's still a nice restaurant.
The ribeye is great.
Pasta with lobster has too much rosemary.
And it's pricing itself out of the market if it continues to serve $37 scallop entrees with only 3 semi-big scallops.

Our server was excellent... the only real disappointment was the manager. We booked a reservation for 5ppl and their idea of a table for 5 is a table meant for 4 with a chair added at the end. We asked about pulling over another smaller table for 2 but were told they had too many reservations to do that... yet there were still plenty of open table the whole time. Management - 0 stars... our actual waiter - 10 stars.

Not a good experience whatsoever. I made a reservation for my wife's birthday and we ended up walking out of the restaurant shortly after our food arrived. We ordered a well done steak x 2 and it came out medium rare for both. A staff member whom I believed to be was the Manager began to explain that was normal for their well done steaks and made it seem like we were being the unreasonable ones. The Manager offered to get us 2 new steaks but said we would be waiting an extra 40 minutes (as we had already waited 30 minutes for our first steak) and made no attempt whatsoever to offer us a complimentary appetizer in the meantime. The service was extremely poor and I will never return!

The menu is quite diverse, with a lot of selections to please a variety of tastes. Service was excellent throughout; our server was very friendly & personable and professional at the same time. Food was delicious! I was particularly happy that the sides weren't neglected. Everything was seasoned properly and meat temperatures were spot on.

My sole complaint was the volume level of the music. We arrived at 8:15 PM and everything was great, volume-wise, until about 10:00 PM when the music was just about doubled in volume and the restaurant turned into a quasi-nightclub. If that's your thing, great, but for myself and my friends, we just wanted to go have a great meal and a chat, and this really wasn't our scene.

I would come back for lunch or an early dinner, but wouldn't want to be there during "nightclub hours" again.
