The menu is mindboggling with so many great cuts of meat and specialty seafood dishes. I had the special rack of lamb, locally fresh picked veggies and creamed spinach. Done perfect. My wife had the Crab Cakes that were so big she could not finish them. Excellently done with lump crabmeat and almost no filler. Perfect. Cocktails and wine also just right both in price and offering. Ask Eddy Maldonado and your evening will be even better.

Reserved with Open Table but West willingly advanced the arrival time when our plans changed. They also moved us from a table to a booth at our request. This place is steak at it best but start with the mussels and calamari. Mussels are in a cream sauce with coconut milk; calamari presented in the lightest batter ever , so good. The NY strip was done with a perfect char and a cool center with a bottle of Turley zin. All of this topped with a comped creme brulee for the one and only 25th anniversary. A night to remenber; a place to recommend.

West is the more expensive sister to Bistro West
The selection is pricier probably because they offer mostly prime selection of of beef pork and seafood.
The service is impeccable and we have always enjoyed out evening there.
Their Happy Hour is also quite goo with the opportunity to sample some of their offereings in a more causal setting.Well worth experiencing. Also $6 Martini night on Mondays
