Had dinner last night with a friend, the first time to 2 West. The restaurant is in the lobby area and its very roomy with pink and champagne colored walls and accents, dim lighting, which lends itself to a cozy and relaxing ambiance. The staff and waiter are very polite, attentive and genuine, very sweet and not cocky at all. The bread was a cross between dark and white bread, quite yummy. The white plates and dinner ware was very modern and strange looking, very sheik. The wine glasses were huge and VERY sophisticated, the wine list was decent and I had a very dry but good French Merlot. I started with a cup of the lobster bisque which was so delicious!! The broth was not too creamy, and lots of lobster chunks...I should have gotten the bowl. Then I had the special appetizer hot scallops with salad and pomengrates, which was tasty and different. I had the sea bass which was perfect, the basmati rice was a bit dry, so I ordered a side of creamy spinach which was total comfort food! My friend had the filet mignon and fries which was heaven. For dessert, I had the passion mango cheesecake with blueberries, raspberries, very tasty to end off the meal. The dinner was very laid-back, cozy, the food quite delicious, and the staff just right. This is a perfect place for a first date, quiet conversation or to take your mother for her birthday. I would definitely go back and try the steak, esgargot and crabcakes!!
Pros: Dim-lighting, quiet, cozy ambiance, good food, attentive service
Cons: The rice was dry and had no taste. That's it.
