We found this gem of a restaurant on a rainy April afternoon. Our Fish and Chips and Black Angus Burger and Fries and Guinness hit the spot. Despite being full we weren't about to miss out on the highly rated desserts. Although the chocolate mousse cake was excellent, the owner had us try the Vegan Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Gelato....

We're so glad you found us, Aileen! It sounds like you made great choices, too -- Guinness goes well with both of those meals. And you can't go wrong with dessert! Thanks for the support. We hope to see you again soon. All the best, James More

James the proprietor immediately makes you feel at home. Their sophisticated menu/recipe's and premier service give you that Manhattan quality vibe. You will not be disapointed. Am already looking forward to our next visit!

Myself, along with my husband and a good friend shared a wonderful Easter afternoon at West Street Grill. We were greeted by the owners and engaged in a charming conversation . We were then seated and went on to enjoy a most delicious Easter dinner. The food was exquisite. We started with oysters, smoked salmon and a farmers salad .... More

This was our second visit to West Street Grill, We did not have a reservation for Easter Dinner but we got there early enough to be welcomed warmly and provided with a table.

Had a fabulous lunch yesterday at the West Street Grill in Litchfield, where they were featuring a special Easter Sunday Menu. To start, I had incredibly flavorsome Black Point oysters from Prince Edward Island, next, the herb encrusted Australian rack of lamb, four good sized chops cooked to perfection, with eggplant caponata and roasted baby carrots in different colors, and...

If you want the "best" food and service in Litchfield Hills area (CT), this is the place for you. We had sumptuous oysters, grilled shrimp and fantastic rack of lamb. Probably the best rack of lamb that we have ever had. Don't forget their desserts. Service was impeccable as always.

West Street Grill is a lovely pot for a business or social lunch. The restaurant is attractive with plenty of cozy booths. Beautiful photographs of dogs and horses adorn the walls. The menu is varied and offers a lot of tasty appetizers, entrees, salads, and desserts. The kids menu also featured several tasty choices. Can't wait to go back.

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
