As usual, James and his team knocked it out of the park. The cocktails to start were perfect, an Old Fashioned for my wife and a dirty martini, well chilled for me. The Guinness Onion Soup was fabulous however the Guinness battered fried oysters with Irish slaw were a show stopper. As a matter of fact, my wife had never... More

West Street Grill is a solid choice. Sophisticated, Litchfield County vibe with consistent yummy food and polished, friendly service. The owner is so gracious. We like it as much in the frigid winter, when it's cozy and vibrant, as we do in the summer when we sit outside in front on a hot, lazy summer late afternoon eating salads. Much... More

My wife and I met my brother and his wife for dinner. We don't get together often. This restaurant is about half way between us. When we first got there the place was empty. I think we were the first customers for the night. We wanted to go slowly so we could talk and the pace from the restaurant was... More

This was my first time visiting the restaurant. I took my girlfriend out for Valentine's Day and it was perfect from start to finish. We were greeted with a warm welcome at the door.

2/11/17 My partner and I have been to West Grill several times in the past and were not disappointed. This new visit was to celebrate and early Valentine's Day and turned out to be most stressful and not up to par.

I'm sorry to hear about the misunderstanding, Bill. While it's true that the removal of hats is restaurant policy, we would never want you to feel unwelcome or rushed before you were able to get comfortable with the temperature. Our apologies for the frustration. I hope you'll change your mind and give us another chance to impress you again in... More

I chose West Street Grill as an early Valentines Day surprise for my girlfriend and I, because it looked classy, warm and vegetarian-friendly. It was all of these things and much much more, providing us with great service and staying open late just to accommodate us. James, the manager also gave us his company and some delicious complimentary desserts.
