Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The cuisine at this luxury Vancouver restaurant is decidedly West Coast with French influence, but the most notable aspect of the menu is that it is seasonal and regional.
  • Cocktails and wine are a focal point of the restaurant, from the fresh-squeezed juices to the expansive, temperature-controlled wine walls filled with hundreds of bottles.
  • West recently added brunch to its Sunday repertoire, serving up a handful of classic offerings, like quiche with friseé salad and eggs Benedict, as well as tangy Bloody Caesars (a uniquely Canadian cocktail made with vodka and housemade Clamato juice).
  • West is open for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch, so you will have plenty of chances to try its fresh local fare, like Vancouver Island octopus with cracked olives and barigoule vinaigrette.
  • If you are catching a show at the nearby Pacific Theatre, the luxury Vancouver restaurant’s three-course pre-theater dinner menu makes it a good dining option. Though the temperature-controlled wall of wine hints that it’s also a great place for a glass of vino.
