It was like finding a lost ancient city in a dense overgrown jungle...only this time it was a gem of a restaurant in hidden vastness of malls and shopping centers. After seeing a show at QPAC (Queensboro Performing Arts Center) and at the suggestion of my wife (who had dined here before), we took our friends and kinfolk to West... More

My business associate and me came in to town for a quick meeting. It was around 7:30 and we didn't know the area. Yelp led us to this kind of strip mall near the hotel. Way in the back, almost impossible to see from the road, in the corner was this restaurant. Based on the name and location we expected... More

This is a superb restaurant in a terrible location..... not dangerous..... in a corner of a dead looking shopping center near Roosevelt Field. When you walk in it is like a science fiction movie... you go from seedy to a modern and sleek restaurant that serves great food with fine service. Dress casually..... shorts are in a real minority.

We were seeing a show at NYCB Westbury Theater, and I did a search for nearby restaurants. We were so very pleasantly surprised. They had a well-priced pre fixe menu, with a large selection. All the desserts were homemade. My drink was a generous poor. I had mussels for my appetizer, and they were delicious. My entree was a pork... More

I went for Restaurant Week so that I could get a sample of what they had to offer. The appetizer was crispy duck tacos with hoisin bbq sauce, napa slaw, and wasabi creme fraiche. I asked for the wasabi sauce on the side. They must have left on the side of the counter in the kitchen because I didn't get... More

Went for restaurant week. Place was so crowded. We had a reservation but still had to wait 30 minutes for our table. The food was delicious and I thought the dinner portion was a nice size but drinks were pricey! We all got different appetizers and shared. The beet snd goat cheese salad was very good. We had a nice... More

NYC restaurant on Long Island hidden in a typical suburban strip shopping center. In the corner, it's truly a hidden gem! Highly recommend !

We've been to the West End Cafe several times in the past but hadn't been there lately. So, three couples of us returned recently and were pleased, as usual, with the food and service, although the portions appeared to be a little smaller and the prices have gone up. We were also a bit disappointed in the wine list this... More
