West Restaurant has been one of the spots we really wanted to visit over the many Dine Outs. This year, we booked very early and managed to get an early dinner reservation on a weekend day. When we arrived, they were just about to start the first dinner sitting. The restaurant entrance was quite small and we nearly passed by it. Inside, the interior has a nice warm wooden tone and high ceiling. It had a very inviting feeling.
Aside from the Dine Out menu, the regular menu is also available for order. For each of the entrée on Dine Out menu, people could also add on extra side if they wish.
|Caramelized Parsnip Soup|
|Shaved Endive and Pear Salad|
|Pacific Ling Cod|
|Red Wine and Cinnamon Braised Beef Flatiron|
You can order a pan seared foie gras along with the beef as an extra, which Lun did.
|Banana Cake with Lemon Caramel Parfait|
|Chocolate Truffle Cake|
Overall, I found the portion being a bit on the smaller side. Usually after the 3-course dinner, I would feel very full but it wasn’t the case for me on this one. All the dishes had great presentation and decent taste. I think you still got quite a deal with this but I thought some of the cheaper ones I went were more memorable. It’s more of a personal preference and perhaps I had quite a bit of expectation before I came. Nonetheless, it was worth the try at a fine dining place like this with the Dine Out price.
