Upscale spot suitable for dinner before attending the Stanley Theater shows across the street. Pre theater menu includes a salad, entree and dessert. Extensive (and pricey) wine selection. Friendly and professional wait staff.

I took my son and his friends out for dinner. It was excellent. Fresh, delicious food including a chicken so tender we were all amazed. The kale salad actually got passed around the table because everyone wanted to eat it.

Excellent meal. Superb service. Perfect atmosphere for a pre-show dinner. The chicken was amazing! The bar went the extra mile - details in the garnishes were a very nice touch.

South Granville
The neighbourhood closest to the airport, a generous
mix of locals and tourists populate the area. The
blend has made it a go-to spot to find an eclectic
collection of entertainment, from theatres and
cinemas, to antique stores and last-minute kitsch
souvenir shops. It gives off a transient vibe, and is
one of the more higgledy-piggledy areas in terms of
what you'll find, making it a fun area to explore and

Recognized as the 'jewel in Vancouver's culinary crown', West Restaurant's outstanding contemporary regional cuisine and seamless service has earned much critical acclaim. Pristine seasonal ingredients are sourced to deliver superbly conceived dishes offering modern interpretations of classics. For those keen to observe 'behind the scenes' action and experience West from a unique perspective, the two 'chef's tables' can be found directly adjacent to the presentation kitchen. One of the highlights of the dining room is a temperature-controlled wall of wine, and under it, the long cherry wood bar that gracefully anchors the conversation-where martinis and cocktails are composed of fresh herbs, juices and creative infusions. A Werner Forster installation floats under the ceiling-a study of light and motion. The leather chairs are the Mario Bellini designed originals found at MOMA, surrounding etched stone tabletops, highlighting a handsome and inviting room that speaks to contemporary Vancouver.
