We went here last week for restaurant week based on their menu choices. Two of us had the "short ribs" however, when our orders arrived we each had one small boneless rib with lots of vegetables, that was singular, not plural. I even said to the waitress, wow, I thought it was "ribs" not "rib" but she kind of ignored... More

My husband and I ate here with another couple. It was our first visit. All of us thought the food was delicious. Some of the stars were duck taco appetizers, organic skillet chicken, shrimp risotto, bacon wrapped meatloaf and more! Loved the apple crisp also. Our server, Jacqueline, was great. Just the right amount of attention without being pushy. Lovely... More

This is definitely one of my favorite restaurants and I have been coming here for years. It is uniquely decorated and once you're inside you feel like you're in Manhattan. Unfortunately it's in a ridiculous parking lot. The food is sensational! The garlic rolls are wonderful! Had the steak salad (yummy) which was perfectly prepared after we shared very tasty... More

They offer an early dinner prix fixed menu. Good value. We've been here many times and never disappoints. This time though, my pork chop was a little tough. I hope it was just this once. Everything else was great, as usual.

An inpromptu Birthday dinner became a super dining experience. We ordered before 6:30 PM and all took advantage of the $32 three course Price Fixe sprcials. There was no holding back on the Price Fixe menu selections. The Appitizers were all delicious and the portions quite nice. The mussles appitizer was large enough to be a meal in itself. All...

Arrived at about 10 to 5 PM on a Wednesday night and were seated at a table even though they don't open until 5. At 5 pm sharp we were given menus, including the prix fixe menu, which we both ordered from. Nelson, our waiter, was very attentive and gracious, saying we could take our time. We ordered drinks and... More

My friends and I have been meeting here for lunch a few times a year, over the last year and a half. We have enjoyed the food and the service has been good until today. While we were having dessert, a cockroach crawled out from under my plate onto the table. We all screamed, tried to kill it and then... More

I've been going to the West End Cafe since it opened more than 20 years ago. Their food and service have maintained their excellence. Their well prepared dishes are pleasing on the eye, as well as the palate. The menu changes seasonally, but my usual choices are the short ribs, pork chops, Parmesan-crusted chicken, or the steak. My favorite desserts... More
