    While I am happy to visit anytime, WestOak is a favourite of mine for Happy Hour and a great place to introduce to new people. The happy hour menu has a great selection of favourites that have me and my friends coming back time and again. My favourites are the Chinois Prawns, the Charcuterie Board and Lamb Lollipops. The skilled bartenders can be counted on to mix a great cocktail.

    Ambience was nice, location was nice but was expecting more from the restaurant. The risotto was watery, we mentioned it to the server and he asked if we wanted anything else and his attitude just changed and we left with a sour taste

    The server had a sort of bored attitude and wasn't overly nice. But the food came out quickly enough and was good! Restaurant was super calming.

    Great food, great drinks and exceptional service. We went with two kids(6 & 10 yrs old ), my 80 yr old mother-in-law and 3 of us adults/party of 6. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate us for a table as there was right behind us a great party going on, but was definitely too much of a thing for us to sit that close to with the party we came with. The staff were absolutely understanding and very accommodating. Thank you! I would definitely recommend this place for the food, ambience and exceptional service!

    A pleasant experience overall. The salmon dish was a bit oily but the halibut was much more balanced. Service was friendly and attentive but occasionally missed cues for our needs. As a whole it was a nice 4/5 $200 night out.

    Food and drinks were very good and we have no complaint other than the sticker shock on the prices. To be fair, it seems all the restaurants in town have gotten very expensive in a very short time.

    Hi there, We have been there often and enjoy it. However, the server seemed to forget a lot and didn’t come to us. We had to keep asking him to come over or asking another waiter to get ours. Our food came out before our drinks. When we asked, he was confused and went to the bar, when he came back he said he forgot to punch in our order. We always order the ribs and prawns. They were good however the ribs were cold. But we were so hungry that we ate them and also the waiter didn’t come check in on us. Thank you for listening and your time!

    Our server was cool and nice, she nailed the vibe. She made great recommendations and didn't get annoyed when we probably laughed too loud/took too long to decide on food. I don't remember her name at all but she has a Portuguese passport but does not speak the language (haha). Thank you!!

    It's a great restaurant. I really appreciate that they offer different cuisine selections for different palate. Service great very amicable, welcoming and courteous. Ambient was decent, sat on the patio and great ambience with minimum noise. Food great taste. We had the halibut fish and roasted salmon and we did enjoy it. The dessert was yummy with the apple tart and vanilla scoop. They were accommodating by letting us seat on the patio before a large party would arrive and then they moved us to another patio table to keep enjoying our time. Overall, I highly recommend this place.

    Our entrees were very delicious. The restaurant is very loud, but a very fun/energetic vibe for dinner. We didn’t have the greatest service experience. It took a while for anyone to come over and even get us waters. The server that finally did, seemed like he was just helping out until our actual server helped us, but it ended up being him the whole time. We had to continuously ask for things, getting drinks, getting food, getting refills, etc.

    Food was decent, nothing to write home about. The front of house hostess was pleasant until we were passed off to a rude second hostess who walked us to our table with her nose in the air and threw the menus at us and stormed off to continuing chatting with her colleague. Many staff members were just standing around and chatting. Took about 10-15 minutes before a server acknowledge us. But servers were friendly and nice enough, however, the service was quite slow. Would have to pass on returning due to the experience.

    If you haven’t tried West Oak, make your reservation now! Amazing food and service. Happy Hour is a great opportunity to try multiple dishes or dine family-style. Standout dishes from their Happy Hour menu are chinois prawns, Maui ribs, calamari and truffle fries.

    The service was excellent, from the host to our server to sitting us outside when a table became free.. they really went above and beyond. That said, the food was good but the pasta (Italian) dishes were very under seasoned and felt rushed.

    The music was way too loud, and while the manager agreed to turn it down, it only went down a tiny bit. To be fair we were there with our two kids plus their elderly grandmother. Food was so-so. Service was initially slow but very friendly and helpful server. We wouldn’t go back.

    My cousin and I went to West Oak as girls night out ( she is visiting from California). The food/music/atmosphere but our waiter was terrible ( to us). We saw him being all smiles and attentive to other guests but did not really want to serve us... not sure why or what happened as he asked us for the first drink and then never asked if we wanted other or even came back to get us water refills. Once our food was other he did not ask us if we wanted entrées or anything he went straight to the bill. He ignored us so much so that we had to ask a different wait for our bill because this dude was not coming back to our table. For prospective I have been to West oak few times and always had a great time and experience.

    First time there after going on diner recommendations. I cannot understand how this place gets a 4.4 on open table? Maybe it was a really off night but it was not good. The server seemed as though she could care less if we were there or not. Acted like she had something better to do. Ordered gyoza and immediately sent it back. It was the saltiest dish I’ve ever had in my life. It was downright bad. I ordered scallops and they didn’t have them. So, at the suggestion of the server, I ordered the rack of lamb. Again, inedible. It was tasteless and looked as though someone had cut it apart with a dull axe. Needless to say, I left with a large bill and an empty stomach. Comped a glass of wine but really couldn’t have cared less that I left my entire plate to be tossed out. I always give a restaurant at least a second chance. Not this one. We definitely will not be going back.
