About West Restaurant


True to our Region True to the Seasons

Recognized as the “jewel in Vancouver’s culinary crown,” West’s outstanding contemporary regional cuisine and seamless service has garnered much critical acclaim, including four consecutive wins as Restaurant of the Year by the Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards, and a prestigious four star rating by Mobil Travel Guide.

Pristine local ingredients are sourced to deliver superbly conceived dishes offering modern interpretations of classics. Exuding energy and action, the kitchen offers two ‘chef’s tables’ that render an up–close culinary theatre experience.

The elegant dining room is highlighted by a magnificent, temperature-controlled wall of wine housing West’s extensive wine collection, an ever-evolving list of acclaimed Old World producers, rare finds and exciting New World vintners. At the gleaming cherrywood bar, martinis and cocktails are composed of fresh herbs, juices and creative infusions.

West is located in Vancouver’s chic South Granville neighborhood (just five minutes from the downtown core).

“A beautifully appointed space, first rate service, and a great bar program round out this award-winning room.”
Vancouver magazine, Eating + Drinking Guide, 2011

“Beautifully presented dishes using local ingredients. The Sea Tasting Menu is a real treat.”
New! Travel UK, 2010

“Unfailingly gracious, flawless service, right down to the smallest detail and service is all about the details.”
Vancouver magazine, 2010

“The most memorable meal on this Vancouver visit was lunch at West.”
Seattle Times, 2010

“Every dish is magical and certainly distinctive to the seasonal offerings of Vancouver. Gremolata’s picks? We love the “West” Seafood Chowder with its innovative lemon cleansing finish and the filet of smoked sablefish “en papillote” with fresh uni shitake mushroom salad and smoked tea broth. Both dishes are truly divine for their ability to provoke discussion at the table. The clear signs of a creative chef executing brilliance.”, 2010
