"What a surprise in an unassuming strip mall! The beet salad appetizer was excellent, chicken in a cast-iron skillet was very good, as was the pork chop. Duck taco appetizers were fine; (bourbon pecan pie was just ok). Certainly adding this place to the dining-out rotation. Loved the food and the atmosphere."

"As always, West End Cafe came through with absolutely delicious food and great service. Only problem was the noise level, but perhaps it was the fact that it was Restaurant Week that made it more crowded than usual. Have been there many times before without such a high decibel level. Overall, a great dining experience."

"I was disappointed that they brought one appetizer wrong and did nothing about it. Aldo we were celebrating a birthday and we asked for a candle in desert did not get while others did. Waiter claimed spoke to manager but didn't have courtesy to speak to us. Also waiter never came and checked on our food. And they have nerve to want tip in cash. Treated badly."

"Restaurant Week resulted in larger crowd and longer wait; no seats at the bar to start the evening off right; several menu items were no longer available at 7:45. HOWEVER, the food and service, once seated, were excellent and lived up to the usual WEC standards."

"Very lovely dining experience in a very unassuming location. The meal began with a three-roll bread basket including a huge warm garlic knot--delicious. I had a lovely eggplant crostini and salad starter, followed by Salmon with lime avocado for a main course. Both were very good. My husband and I shared two sumptuous desserts, a molten lava cake with caramel gelato, and a pistachio parfait that looked and tasted like a sundae. He started with meatballs that were like his mom used to make, followed by short ribs--very nicely presented though not a huge portion (after dessert, though, we didn't worry about that!). The service was excellent and we were very pleased. We shared a fantastic drink--a Mediterranean mule--and each had excellent coffee."

"Even on a Monday this always tasty with fine quality food was crowded, maybe the price fix dinner helped, but the food still has to be very good and it is. I had the French onion soup which had a light aromatic broth and fine melted toasted cheese on top. While trying diet and still enjoy our 35th anniversary, I had the excellent hoison sauced duck taco as a main dish. My wife ordered the pork chop on the special menu which was nicely done, but somehow way under cooked in the bone-in portion, the lobster bisque was just okay with one shrimp in it. We shared the delicious chocolate lava cake and ice cream, breaking our diets, a bit, in celebration. We did not have the wonderful looking rolls that stared at me for half the meal, until my wife asked the waiter to take that white bread temptation away, as I was beginning to lose my resolve. Service was efficient and pleasant."

"It seemed like my confused Aunt's kitchen. Somethings are decent, others aren't so tasty. Some of the rolls are hot and fresh, the others are a day old. Much of the stuff was really just OK, for a high price. In addition, waiters are just scrambling around, busing tables, they don't have that customer service edge that I have become used to at this price point (i.e. my drink was unfilled, requests were not completed, and people are seated on top of one another). Overall, I would not recommend this place, and I would not go again.
