We've recently visited 86 West for lunch, and found a renewed energy. The salads are delicious (try the steak salad!) and the sushi is fresh. My son had tacos that he inhaled. Our server (Zach) did a great job even though he was clearly very busy. He got everything right, and fresh and hot (or cold). My family has a ton of food allergies, and everything was happy and nothing was made incorrectly. He even found me a bottle of Pelligrino, for which I was very grateful.

When I made the reservation, I made it for outdoors. I was told (very nicely) that outdoors was first come, first serve and there would be and hour and a half wait. That was not possible for our mini-reunion that had been carefully planned. The confusion is still not clear to me since I reserved for outdoors. The staff accommodated us in a quiet spot but I was concerned since I have not dined inside in seventeen months.

We had made a reservation 2 days in advance. I had to choose high-top because standard was all full, no problem. Upon arrival 86west was crowded and very noisy which we were ok with given the fact that it was Friday. However, we were taken to the very back of the restaurant where they make the sushi. We were the ONLY table back there. Disappointing because I had made a high top reservation. The waitress promptly brought out water, but she took FOREVER to come take a drink order. When she did we ordered an appetizer of guacamole for fear that she would take long to come back. Drinks were ok , guacamole was less than mediocre. Squished up avocado with onions on top. Waitress finally took the entree order which in all fairness did come out within a reasonable amount of time. However, the waitress was MIA until we finally had to get up and go find her. Had to ask another waitress to get her for us so we could get our check. Sat drink-less with our finished dinner plates in front of us for at least 30 minutes. The busboys finally came to get our dishes right before we went on the hunt for our waitress. I’ve never been so excited to pay the check and finally leave a restaurant until this experience. I understand there are understaffing issues in these times, but this was a rough night at a spot we always loved

Our server was great- food was amazing and this was our first time. They could do so much more with the ambiance- we were seated at a high top near the bar which was way way too noisy-when people go out to dinner on a Saturday night they want to be able to hear their table mates. The noise level was just extremely loud. We asked if we could be seated at a regular table and noticed that there was room in the back and they were kind enough to move us which was much better. We had a great time and will definitely be back I will ask for a table in the back which is much quieter. Very nice people.

service started good with introduction and taking our order. server brought drinks out quickly. appetizers took a while to come out. after server brought apps she didn't come back again. half way through apps I need another drink. bus boy picked up app dishes. after a long wait other servers brought out food. first mine than a few minutes later my wife. still no drink. waited for 10-15 minutes to start eating my meal hoping to get a drink. my wife finished her before I started mine. finally after passing by us 15 times, seeing my wife's and my empty water glasses, the server saw the expression on my face and came over to ask if everything was ok. I explained that I hadn't had a drink since half way through my appetizer. she brought me a drink.

Visited here a few months ago and has a lackluster experience. I was contacted by the restaurant and was offered a sincere apology and a round of drinks on the house to return. I’m glad I accepted the offer. My experience this time was 100% better. Our server Julia was friendly and attentive and the manager on duty even came over to say Hi and when we received our bill, she had comped both rounds of drinks my husband and I had. Everyone was very friendly and their food is amazing. Everyone deserves a second chance and I’m glad I went again. We will be back!
