Recognized as the ‘jewel in Vancouver's culinary crown’, West's outstanding contemporary regional cuisine and seamless service has earned much critical acclaim. Pristine seasonal ingredients are sourced to deliver superbly conceived dishes offering modern interpretations of classics.

For those keen to observe ‘behind the scenes’ action and experience West from a unique perspective, the two ‘chef's tables’ can be found directly adjacent to the presentation kitchen. One of the highlights of the dining room is a temperature-controlled wall of wine, and under it, the long cherry wood bar that gracefully anchors the conversation—where martinis and cocktails are composed of fresh herbs, juices and creative infusions.

Please note: online reservations are currently available for parties up to 10 guests.

Private Dining

West can accommodate private parties up to 77 people.

With an early reservation, a pre-theatre menu accompanied the regular menu for those who have time constraints. We didn’t, so our foursome dined at a leisurely pace. Staff were attentive and well versed on ingredients in each dish. The courses were perfectly paced and the wine list is excellent.

Friendly welcome at the door set the tone. We went for the taster menu with wine pairing. The food was excellent, the wine was good and the service was friendly. Nice touches like wishing ‘happy birthday’ was welcome and appreciated. No sign of pretentious atmosphere often found in other restaurants. We really enjoyed it.

New Years Eve. 4 Course set dinner and it was amazing from the beet salad, poached lobster and my steak. Everything was perfect. No complaints from hubby either. We had the chefs table which we love so it was a amazing evening. Great way to end the year

Went for the Christmas Eve dinner. 3 course menu very disappointed for the food. Beef Tatar and Octupus for appertizer was fair. But main course, the lamb was not chewy and tasty enough,.fish was also too salty. Desserts were all grocery store level. Will never come back.

Took a friend for her Birthday Lunch and noted via options on open table that one patron- me has an egg allergy and my friend would be celebrating her birthday . The chef was considerate enough to make me a dessert off menu that i was able to enjoy it was delicious as was the rest of the meal. Service was excellent. A big thank you to the entire staff for making my friends birthday memorable.

It is a bit pricey, but I guess because of its location on South Granville. It is right opposite the Stanley Theatre and close to downtown. The main dishes are on the small portion side and not much veggie. You definitely need an appy or a side dish (if you just have a main course) or eat a lot bread. My friend had the SET dinner with a few courses at $100++, but the portion of each course was very small again. If you are hungry, don't eat there. It's really a place for special occasions or to impress someone. My bone-in pork chop was really nicely cooked to the correct done-ness. I had an appy Risotto to accompany the pork, otherwise just the pork chop was not enough even for a small woman like me. Service was good enough, but the evening we were there, there was not enough staff. This was my second time dining there, I personally like to eat there !

Busy, great menu, and the feeling of being out at a nice place.
We started with scallops and oysters, followed by tenderloin and sable fish, all four dishes excellent.
Was a little off put by not receiving an acknowledgement of our wait past our reservation for our table.
Small things can make a big difference in the evening.

Great food, great service. The new pastry chef couldn’t get the panna cotta to come together, which seems odd for a restaurant of this calibre, so I had to choose something else. But then they provided the desserts for free as a make up. Ergo good service.

Everything was as good as it gets however it is expensive which makes it a good place for a special occasion. There is often a prix fixe menu which makes it a little more affordable without sacrificing any quality. And our server Monica was perhaps the best i have ever encountered

Fantastic brunch! Great oysters, very fresh with horseradish, lemon and red wine mignonette.
Excellent eggs benedict which can be served soft, medium or hard boiled. We also had the French toat and the brandade as well as the tartare.
All of the items were excellent.
Our server was discreet. The service was excellent. The restaurant has an open kitchen concept and offers a great wine list for the connaisseur.

Meh. Service was stellar! Everything else was mediocre. Menu was boring. My lobster app was over cooked. Onion soup was blah. Duck was chewy and undercooked. Was supposed to be medium, hardly even medium rare. Husband thought the gremolata on his lamb tasted like dirt. Sad cider selection.
Would never go back or recommend. Waited years to eat here only to be disappointed.
