    Great food. Great service. Outdoor patio was covered and comfortable. I had a view of the Padres game on one of the TVs at the bar which was perfect. Parking lot on the street and in the parking lot.

    Very nice to have a choice of eating on the patio or indoors. Located on the Torrey Pines Estuary. Food is good but check prices for specials that are very expensive. All other prices are reasonable.

    Everything we had was amazing. We had to wait for members of our party to show so indulged in appetizers. The braised pork tostadas were to die for! We ordered a total of 3 orders of them (they come with 3 tostadas so we had a total of 9) so our guests to enjoy them also! We had 6 people and one with a severe fish allergy. They made certain the chicken was cooked on a skillet that was not used for fish and everything she ordered was not fried in the same oil as any fish either (so basically nothing fried). Considerate, lovely, yummy and will return over and over again! The beautiful sunset was a huge bonus for our out of town guests! Thank you for accommodating us! The servers were exquisite!

    We had a baby shower here for 11 people and it was the perfect place! The food is great with generous portions, there is parking, great views and a laid back vibe but slightly upscale. The staff was wonderful leading up to the shower and during it. Can’t say enough great things about this little gem! Thank you!

    I reserved a table outdoor for 2 at 12:30 Sunday. I took my small dog with me. We humans as well as my dog were given ice water immediately, which was very nice, especially on a very hot day. The food was good. All servers were friendly and attentive. But we had to ask for salt and pepper as well as sugar for late after food was served. None of those were on the table. The place did not seem to be short on staff, so I think it was due to organizational issue. Nonetheless, since it's in my neighborhood and food was good, I'll go there again.

    We arrived early since it was the beginning of a holiday weekend. The inside tables and the bar were a nice place to stay cool during this weekend's heat wave. Super friendly bartender (extra points for putting up with my husband's dad jokes) and staff!!! We have always enjoyed the food delivered by the chef at West End. Our night did not disappoint!

    Waiter was gruff, unfriendly and rushed us to order. Tried to take away my plate before I was finished my. Ordered an entree crab salad. It was all lettuce, 4 tiny pieces of tomato, 4 slices of cucumber, maybe 1 tablespoon of crab & 2 tablespoons of goat cheese. Garlic in Artichoke appetizer was burnt. My friend asked that her halibut be cooked through & waiter responded that they cook it medium rare. She asked again if it could be cooked through. She was served a ruined, dry piece of halibut. Other than the sweet, welcoming hostesses the experience was very disappointing. I would never go back to this restaurant. again.

    The views are great, but the food was just eh. Food should’ve had a little more flavor and not tasted like it was reconstituted (mushrooms I’m looking at you). The lead server (owner?) was not all too friendly toward our large table and seemed flustered to say the least, even though we were pretty low maintenance.

    Remember to ask how expensive the special is. &45 for our fish special was a little much for us but it was very delicious. There needs to be an adjustment to get shades that screen western sun just for a few hours. Sun comes under awning and I had to change seats. Overall a good value and very pleasant.

    Terrible waiter. Food was good but, the awful experience we had with our waiter has tainted the image. We were rushed the entire time to order and with 3 tables left in the restaurant the waiter came and announced we had 5 minutes to exit the restaurant for closing. I mean come on!! I get it you want to go home but SERIOUSLY!! As a former restaurant owner I know it takes time to close a restaurant beyond shutting the doors.. but it’s not ok to Kick people out. One of the tables had ordered a bottle of wine and still had 1/2 left to drink…

    Service attentive and good attitude, food good. Ambience is poor. Inside dining particularly has bad feel—chairs too low for tables and lighting much too bright, especially for an unattractive room. Bar has no ambiance and really needs lower lighting to make if feel like a bar. Clam chowder excellent. Waitstaff is consistently excellent.

    The West End Kitchen and Bar is my favorite place to eat out. The ambience is delightful. I am a fan of "trains" and about 30 trains per day pass over the tracks at the southern side of Penasquitos Lagoon. The food is delicious. My favorite dish is the cioppino, a seafood stew.
