Glad I found this place. Amazing dinner from start to end. It's in the corner of a shopping plaza deep in the parking lot. Inside is gorgeous and the separation done for pandemic precaution is really well done and classy. But the best part was the food. Everything is FRESH. So much flavor. Had the crab cakes for appetizer, Romano chicken and butternut squash ravioli, and caramel cake for dessert and all was very good. Love this place can't wait to be back.
Food and portions are fabulous. Service very quick. Following COVID guidelines. Felt secure.
No complaints. Valentine’s dinner was perfect. Love the tuna sashimi salad.
The ambiance and feel was much nicer than I thought. The food was delicious although the menu might appear a bit limited. The dining room was very clean and comfortable. There is spacing and separation between tables and at the bar. This is not a diner type place. It’s definitely very nice adult dining experience.
Beautiful Valentines Day celebration in every way❣️
All wonderful....food, service and ambiance ❣️
My husband and I have been going to West End Cafe since they have opened 30 years ago. On Saturday night we celebrated 30 yrs of marriage. Love this restaurant
We hadn’t been in a while but it was as great as we remembered. Very private and romantic!
Always a good choice.
Excellent as always ! The food was great, this is one of the only restaurants that use seasonings other than salt ! I also felt totally safe with the COVID protocols that are in place.
I highly recommend The West End Cafe
Overall great experience- always good food
West End Cafe has done a great job of distancing the tables with attractive dividers.
The food was excellent as it always is.
The Butternut Squash Ravioli was big hit as were the Duck Tacos appetizer.
Lovely, clean dining area. Tables well spaced.
Great drink and lots of menu options. The food was delicious!
Excellent service. Highly recommend
if you get there early enough you can take part in their Twilight menu for $40 you can get a 3 course meal. You cant go wrong with anything you order there- its all delicious!
My best friend and I enjoyed it very much. even more so, it was restaurant week. The price was great. truly enjoyed it.
Went there with another couple to celebrate a birthday and the food was excellent! The place is COVID safe with hard plastic and curtain dividers at the bar and tables, and the bathrooms very are clean. The ambiance is just buzzing, welcoming and friendly! The servers are wonderful and helpful and knows the menu very well. Kudos to the Chef, Bartender and Staff...well done!!
We will definitely be back!
Milton is the best server ever. Always ready to please and very efficient! Food superb. Drinks are made by an amazing maestro. Must go to the bar and say hi to Ari. (Personal favorite is the Bourbon peach smash). Love the atmosphere, but I think some music would be a great addition. Very well spaced out, no worries about social distancing. A must visit. Wonderful dining experience.
Love the West End Cafe! Recommend the duck taco as well as brick chicken. My husband loves the salmon!
The menu had good options for foodies and the service was fine. We had to seek out the servers attention a couple times as he was unable to see us due to the opaque table dividers that have been set up as a social distancing requirement.
The food was tasty and the drinks were cold. I will be back for another weeknight dinner.
Cesar salad lacking taste. Chicken Romano mediocre. Friends fish dish included bacon not on menu and added nothing to the taste. The only exceptional items were the bread, duck tacos and dissert.
We made a good choice in going to WEC. We haven't been there in awhile. The quality of food & service has not changed. They have a done a nice job in setting up the dinning room during these difficult days.
West End has always been our go to place for a great meal
Consistently awesome and I’m sooooo picky!
Even during a pandemic, you can be assured of a safe and fantastic meal.
Always great service.
Service was good
Food was excellent
It was great until a party of about 10 was seated next to us. I was horrified!! Very disappointed. Not right and not fair
Service & food was excellent, restaurant followed COVID 19 protocols, nice place to go for a great meal, & special occasions will go back soon
Great food, good social distancing
We have been to the West End Cafe many times. The food and service is always excellent. The partitions are very tasteful and do not distract from the decor.
Excellent food as usual, and service. All precautions for Covid were impressive. Felt safe, comfortable, and enjoyed the privacy of partitions. Portions huge, and my Romano crusted chicken was so flavorful. Always a good meal there, been going here for 15 years!
I’ve been to West End Cafe many times over the years... as it was one of our favorites.
We went Saturday night with dear friends. It just is not the same quality of food & service.
Unfortunately another thing that Covid has destroyed.
Great food.. service.. ambiance. Cassie is the best!!
Social distancing at its best with partitions in between sitting areas. Excellent service and great food.
No other restaurant adheres so we’ll to the CDC guidelines. Could not possibly have felt safer in the environment they’ve created. As far as the food, exceptional doesn’t come close enough to describing flavor and presentation
Kudos to West End Cafe for always going above and beyond
Best example of social distancing that I’ve seen hands down!! We been to this restaurant many times and it’s always been excellent but we were blown away by their restructuring of the restaurant to create a safe atmosphere for their patrons. They obviously care more about you then making the maximum amount of money possible per night. Went on Saturday night at 8pm and this was my experience!!! Kudos to you!!! VERY IMPRESSED!
I haven't been out dining since March . Mostly since I am concerned about how restaurants have taken precautions and safety .
It was a special occasion so I chose West End as I dined there frequently for many years.
Once I walked ion the door I could see the amount of time ,effort and care put into their diners safety .The entire experience was amazing
What a neighborhood gem! Extraordinary food and phenomenal service. If you don't leave a 30% tip, you are crazy. During the early pandemic, diners were separated by plastic curtains, now by sheeting. A little noisy, but certainly safe. Outdoors is much too cold in November, but the food is worth it. We travel over 25 miles to come and it is worth it!
Had been here in quite sometime but as always the service and food didn’t disappoint.
Outstanding Rack of Lamb!!
Beet salad was fantastic also!
Always am amazing meal here.
Not fair to rate ambiance and noise level during Covid. We ate outside on a Tuesday and it was quiet, under a tent. They are doing their best under the circumstances, and the service and food have remained outstanding!
