Had booked well in advance for a very special birthday celebration - my mother's 90th. We had travelled up from Canterbury to be with her and her Grandchildren had travelled from Harrogate and London. Turned up at the West 34 to find everything in darkness and this was not because it was a surprise! Well it turned out to be a massive surprise - the whole place was shut even though we had been asked, the previous day, if we were still coming to the restaurant. We asked next door and were told that the restaurant had shut down. What an absolute disaster!

The air conditioning was so cold on a cool evening we had to ask for it to be turned off as people were wearing outdoor jackets! There was no soap in the ladies loo. The wine we ordered was not available. When my husband was eating his starter the waitress started spraying a pungent cleaner on the table next to us which was very unpleasant and ruined the flavour of the food. This was completely unnecessary as no one else was going to occupy the table at that time. My food was cold but I didn't want to make a fuss as it was my daughter's birthday. Overall it was very disappointing, and quite expensive considering what we had eaten. We will not be coming back.

I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone, ever. The food was ok, though overpriced, but the service was dreadful! Absolutely no idea how to deal with serving food and wine, and as for clearing away surplus glasses it just didn't happen. We had to put used glasses on to another vacant table ourselves. Sorry but defined a no no.

Service poor, only one waitress servicing multiple tables. Two other guys doing not a lot apart from chatting to their mate who was sitting at the bar, he got more attention from them than the rest of the diners put together. Tiny portion of “slaw” with the meal, never seen such a small portion on a plate.

Very disappointed to have ordered a £25 bottle of Marlborough wine (which we had 2) only to eventually realise we had been served with Morrison's supermarket own label Marlborough. Bad practice for any restaurant. On a positive note the venue is lovely and the crab linguine was exceptional but the surf and turf @ £25 for a fairly small rump steak, 5 averaged size prawns and a plate 60% full of chips was not great.
The staff were very attentive but I'd question the chefs and the sommeliers decisions.in fact id suggest they change approach quickly...cant see us going back anytime soon.

pleasant food, good service. I thought a good everyday restaurant so perhaps on the pricey side e.g. the wines

It was quiet when we arrived, as it was a Sunday evening and it closes at 20:00. We were made to feel welcome, service was pleasant and punctual. Will go back again.

We didn't eat there as, when booking there was no mention on the website that it would only be a limited choice fixed menu. For a restaurant supposedly specialising in seafood there was only 1 fish choice.

Food was hot and freshly cooked, the Sunday roast was beef and excellent, topped off by the Hot Pud Trio and custard for dessert, thought I'd died and gone to heaven !

Not good value. Restaurant prices for food that you could make much better yourself. Extremely disappointing. Maybe the chef was having a day off, or an off-day. Really wish we’d cut our losses and left after the starters.

The food was perfectly acceptable but quite expensive for what you got. £14 for a plate of pasta at lunchtime isn’t great value, and there are better options in West Kirby. Service was very good. The place was practically empty so there wasn’t what you’d call ‘ambiance’. But it did mean we could hear ourselves talk.

Excellent restaurant specialising in fish but also offering good range of other dishes for carnivores and vegetarians. Friendly service and great food - so good that the January special offer encouraged us to go for dinner there on consecutive evenings!

Top notch service, from getting to the restaurant, to ordering drinks and service in general, it's a well planned operation, staff are all excellent and if you're unsure can advise you with recommendations that are better than you could have chosen yourself, great venue and a well run team

Overall very good - however we found the menus difficult to read due to colour combination of sheet! Also not clear what was going to be on the plate - my husband had the belly pork and ended up ordering a side order of potatoes that he didn’t need! We all had the Skagen prawn starter and thought it consisted of chopped up shrimps!! Very tasty though! We also found the dessert menu disappointing
I also found the lack of a taster or mint with the coffee sad !
We did have a good time and we did enjoy the food we had !
Reason I didn’t fill in value * was that I didn’t see the bill!!! Have given it a 4 so that I can submit the the review!!

I first ate at West 34 for lunch a few weeks ago. I was very impressed with the food and service so decided it would be appropriate to book for early evening in order to treat some special friends. As before, I was nor disappointed. The ambience, food and service were all excellent, so that a good evening was enjoyed.

First class service, great staff, really good to be made to feel a valued customer. Been going here for at least 15 years, during its various incarnations as Scognamiglios and later Scogs, but this is the best yet. A great atmosphere and sophisticated but relaxing surroundings. A genuinely great addition to the West Kirby scene.

Have eaten here nany times - the food is excellent. However on this occassion when we got to desert we were rushed and pushed so they could get rid of us - we were told last orders for drinks on a Wednesday were before 10 ! Shame - never been treated that poorly there before. The whole situation was poorly handled by the team. All about them and not the customer.
