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.

Always a great spot for a nice dinner
West continues its usual high standard! Thanks for a great meal.
The food was excellent, but took a little longer than expected to serve.
West has been our go-to restaurant when we have theatre tickets at The Stanley, unfortunately the last three times we've eaten here the food has been so salty it had to be sent back or we just didn't eat it. For this price point the meals should be exceptional, sadly they're not. For us it's three strikes and they're out, need to find a new date night go-to.
While the servers seemed somewhat distracted, it was not enough for us to not have a lovely meal.
Still an excellent restaurant. Warm contemporary environment featuring a very high ceiling, a huge wall behind the bar with plenty of wine, a glass enclosed kitchen and spacious seating with very comfortable leather seats. The menu has lots of delectable options heavily focused on local seafood, meats and fresh vegetables. A great bar selections and lots of reasonably priced wine. The staff was attentive with just the right amount of visits from the Maitre'D. Will check West out for a Friday evening drink!
Although the food was excellent, the service was very snobby. We were asked 3 times to leave our bags; they were not in the way and one of our party had valuable camera equipment. Also, one of our party was asked, none too politely, to put her bottle of water back in her bag. We asked to receive separate bills and this was quite a problem...all in all, excellent food but unpleasant experience !
The lobster gnocchi appetizer was among the best dishes ever. The gnocchi was fluffy, the lobster was sweet and the broth was perfectly seasoned. The halibut was also perfectly cooked.
The petit fours were perfect.
Had the special fixed price Spring menu . As I am gluten free by necessity, my choices were limited. However, I enjoyed my asparagus salad, mushroom risotto Main & a rhubarb based dessert. I would have liked the salmon but the gnocchi were not gf. Chef did not suggest that any substitutions could be made. I would have welcomed more of a choice in my Main course. I didn’t have one. Service was very nice, although with many of the diners theatre bound it must be challenging for staff. We appreciated the timeliness of our courses.
2nd time at West for their 2 course lunch. Excellent value for quality and great service
Noise level is lower at lunch time
We had dinner pre theatre and had the pre set menu option, very delicious food. Be aware though that they tend to cook their beef on the underdone side. A medium flat iron steak was served rare and a medium rare was served very rare. Service was attentive and professional.
Delicious food. Expensive but excellent. Fantastic service. Tasteful ambience. Too expensive for my budget as a frequent place to dine but wonderful for a special occasion. Took my father there for his birthday and Father's Day and it was perfect. He loved it.
Enjoyed spring special. The main was a bit too salty for me this time, but overall was great.
The food and service as always are amazing- great menu for drinks and dinner. The fires are to die for!
What a joy to eat at a restaurant that is focused on food and the customer. That seems self evident, but so few places pull it off consistently. We had brunch on a Saturday and were very pleased with both the service and the food. The fresh squeezed orange juice was the best I have had in a long time, and the eggs Benedict were done perfectly. Happy experience.
I think this is one of my new favourite restaurants. I don't go very often but if I really wanted to treat myself, I would come out here with a friend or family member. I think the meal portions should be a bit more but they are delicious, beautiful and mastered really well. I love the service and the fact that servers are so well dressed. Very classy atmosphere and creative cuisine, I love this place.
Pre dinner cocktail was excellent. Enjoyed the show of watching it be made. Service was very attentive and the Spring 3 course meal special was appreciated.
Visited for dinner and had the Tasting Menu. The staff made sure to ask about any dietary restrictions and how they could help if there were any. We each ordered a glass of wine and one chef's tasting menu and one vegetarian tasting menu. Each item was prepared well and presented well from the menu. The flavors melded very well together with the various ingredients on the plate. I did think the vegetarian menu had a better dessert though which was a banana caramel cake. Depending on where you sat you could watch the chefs cook and plate the meals before they came out. It looked very well orchestrated. The only thing I didn't really like was that they could've better dusted a little. We sat at an end booth and could see a nice layer of dust on the platform next to us which was about eye level. There were some decanters there for decoration I assume given the dust. For some reason that really bothered me.
This place is really good; delicious meals, friendly staff and modern type design hall.
The only one problem is a spaghetti. Some parts are still cold and taste is not satisfied with my son. Do not recommend to order it!!
Tasty high quality petite dishes. Waiter couldn't remember all the details of the dishes but overall very nice dining experience.
Restaurant is beautiful, food is delicious, service is impeccable. Have been there for numerous
occasions and am never disappointed. It is not cheap but the food is so good you do not mind spending extra.
Awesome. Probably the most impressive ACTUAL crafted cocktail bar ever. The restaurant was amazing as well. Very cool atmosphere.
Perfect for a romantic dinner. Zero complaints and they were very knowledgeable and accommodating to my allergies. Would recommend and return.
Great place great food.cocktails were impressive. Appetizers were out of this world good. Only thing we found was that the main course was too salty and overall not up to par. Side note I'd recommend getting rid of the candles on the ledge and use regular ones. The current ones take away from the atmosphere.
West staff provided excellent service, the ambience was lovely and the food superb.
We wanted to take a guest from Italy to a restaurant where she would have a memorable all round experience including a menu that would have a BC feel. We couldn't have asked for a better evening.
Lovely evening, delicious food (enjoy new chef). Local to us and always enjoy coming here for a good meal, service, and experience.
Three of us dined here on Monday, May 21, 2018, and we ordered from the special three course, spring dinner menu. We each ordered a different entree and each one of us was highly satisfied with our choice (risotto, salmon, and steak). My salmon was prepared perfectly: pink on the inside with a crispy skin. Yummy! The service was attentive and professional. The presentation of each dish was especially appealing. We had forgotten about this South Granville gem, and highly recommend it.
Loved our evening at West....celebrated a belated birthday - wonderful hand crafted cocktail at the bar. It was Victoria Day holiday so Restaurant was extremely quiet but even though there were only four other guest tables, Giovanni, the manager, introduced himself to us at the bar and saw that we had a wonderful dinner experience from start to finish. The food was just outstanding.....beautifully served and just the right size for us. Only negative comment I could offer was a very cold fan directly above me - a shawl would have been perfect!
We certainly will be back to West and would definitely suggest WEST to others who appreciate fine dining and fine service in the South Granville area.
We enjoyed meeting and discussing the menu with the very suave and debonair Giovanni who has such a passion for wonderful food....and making his restaurant sparkle - it is a jewel!!!

What a great experience!! Vancouver is a foodie town. Lots of great restaurants. This one did not disappoint. Friendly, knowledgeable service. Amazing food. Interesting menu. Great wine and cocktail menu. Just a pleasure!!
We’ll be back next time we’re in Vancouver.
Good food and value .
Always a delight to go to West. It's a jewel in the Vancouver food scene.
Elegant established renouned first class restaurant was suprisingly quiet at lunch time but that did not affect the quality of the food (excellent) and the service (attentive and knowledgeable). Its fun to see the chefs preping. The menu is varied and evolves using seasonal and local sources. Always a positive.
I was suprised to find the wahroom extremely dusty. Obviouly it needs some attention.
We chose this restaurant for Mother's Day brunch. As usual, service, food and ambience were impeccable. We have dined here 4 times in the last year and it never fails to impress. Food is consistent and service is attentive. This is a wonderful choice for any occasion.
Fantastic meal, great service, and an amazing selection of scotch!
We had a lovely time for a special birthday dinner. The "interesting" horns lined up on the half wall were a bit distracting, but food was delightful and easily shared between the two of is. Local BC pinot noir was lovely with our meal. Service by our main wait person was excellent and others provided additional service whenever food was ready - altogether delightful.
Delicious spot for brunch! We all enjoyed our dishes and will return...perfect for a special occasion!
