Have eaten here several times since this is a popular place for younger members of the family. Pizza and sandwiches are standard fare and are good value. Other dishes are offered but the quality depends on who is the cook for the evening. There is a full bar along one wall of the building.

Since moving to Hendersonville,NC, we've visited many places to eat. This is one of our 'places to take guests' - lunch or dinner. Thin crust individual pizzas are unique & tasty, salads & sandwiches are great. Desserts OK. Service is good, waitresses helpful & friendly. Atmosphere is a little crowded, sometimes noisy. Glass enclosed patio is a nice side room.... More

We have liked this place and all the food, the only thing that may be a little off putting is the noise level with the high ceilings. If you come at the high time (summer), be patient with a good 30 minute wait.

The only thing lacking is more seating (not enough real estate for more tables) and control of the heat if sitting in the loft area. The other reviews sum up how good the pizza is, may or may not be some turnover issues as we'll get a great hostess or bartender and on the next trip that person is often... More

We loved everything about this place! From the very first step in the door, everyone was welcoming and we received very fast service. The menu offers a lot of choices and no one was disappointed at our table. Good prices too.

We came in late in the evening for a quick bite, and the staff were very accommodating. We ordered pizzas for the table to share, my favorites were the mushroom, and the Lamb. They had great locally sourced and fresh ingredients. Definitely stop here if you are in the area, they do not disappoint!

The food and service at West First never disappoints! The pizza is amazing and there is always a special with unique toppings from lamb to corn and everything in between! Salads, pasta dishes, and soups are delicious too. I could go there multiple times a week solo and/or with family and friends. This is a great place to take out... More

Many toppings that you will not find at your average pizza restaurant. The pizza is fire cooked to perfection!

Good for all ages. The open kitchen and inside terrace make for great atmosphere. Casual yet elegant decor. Pasta was fresh made and delicious. Portions just right to fill you up.

We ate lunch here on anb unseasonably cold day while we were trying to get a sense of Hendersonville. I again followed the advice of my server, Tami, to order the first "potato pizza" I have ever tasted (and I am old).That sounds gross, right? Did to me, too, but I trusted her. That decision was brilliant!! Pizza was delicious:... More
