Tacoma News Tribune

West122 Keno Buttner David Bocanegra

Who goes out of their way for fried calamari? It might be the most ubiquitous appetizer in America, appearing on menus with obvious connections to its Mediterranean etymology and the typical pub, where deep-fryers rule. Most of the time, it’s not particularly memorable. Just a plate of fried seafood as a vehicle for some sort of mildly spiced, mayo-based dipping sauce. In the hands of a kitchen that cares, it can be deeply gratifying.

Our Mission

This place has great food!! The cocktail I had as well was wonderful. We tried the meatballs, and they were AMAZING! The sauce was so flavorful and delicious, as were the meatballs! I would definitely recommend this awesome spot!
We were only here for cocktails and snacks but holy moly... Best friggin meatballs and great service! Would definitely recommend!!
Surprise & delight! Simple menu & excellent meal.
Fantastic pork chop, and knowledgeable attentive service from Patrick. We will definitely be back
man where do I start? walked in and the place had an amazing vibe with chill peaceful music and dim lighting. ordered the calamari as an app and was easily the best calamari i’ve had in my life. my girlfriend got the spaghetti meatballs which were incredible and i ordered the new york steak which was insanely good. our waitress Kehau was also amazing and did a great job with making sure we had everything we needed and checked up on us often. the chef Keno came out and also checked to see how everything was and he was a super cool dude and his food was incredible. highly highly recommend coming and trying this place out. definitely will be back!
5 full stars all around. For food, service, presentation and atmosphere. I can't recommend this place enough. Parking is a challenge, but, that's the way it goes downtown :) I have tried the steak, the porkchop, the chicken, the wedge salad (best one I have ever had) and one of their deserts. Everything was over the top fabulous, as are their craft cocktails. My only wish is that they would add 3-4 additional dinner and HH options for more variety. My husband and I are huge fans. A+++++
The food was epic. I had the peppercorn steak and my girl had the chicken apple cider! It’s a 4.8 for a reason come see for yourself :)
We shared 3 appetizers and split our entree and the wonderful staff split our meal in the kitchen onto two separate plates! The food was incredible with the drinks being inventive and exciting! Will be back soon.
Everything we’ve had here is great! We come back every time for the Brussel Sprouts, but everything on the menu is delicious. Everyone here is friendly! Especially, Kehau she is so nice!
David was excellent!!!
Excellent dinner! The spaghetti and meatballs were delicious as well as the salmon special. We are sure to return
My first visit here was delightful from start to finish. Right from the moment we walked in, the ambiance was incredibly welcoming. The menu, fresh and innovative, really impressed us, especially the chef's special of the day. We loved every dish and are already planning our next visit to bring our foodie friends to experience this fun, friendly, farm-fresh, funky restaurant in Tacoma.
Great cocktails! We'll be back for food!
Brussel sprouts are amazing, steak was cooked perfectly, service was great, amazing wine selection!!!! Ohh and the smoked olives are so delicious.
First off, best Brussels sprouts I've ever had. They were super busy and our food took over an hour, normally no biggie, but we were heading to a show. They comped the meal and packed it to go. Two hours later the halibut and peppercorn steak were still delicious, which surprised me because I'm normally not very excited about cold white-fish. I will definitely be back. Highly recommended.
Everything is excellent!Treat yourself by coming here ♡
Best birthday dinner!!! Excellent food ❤️
We had a really great meal on a Wednesday night. The pork chop and the spaghetti with meatballs were fabulous! We will for sure come back.
It's a small but quaint restaurant with a great atmosphere. Medium pricing and worth every penny. The chocolate brownie desert is astounding!
AMAZING experience all around! Patrick, our server made great recommendations. Our food, drinks and dessert were all to die for! Absolutely recommend the Sloe Love Fizz (if you like Absynthe and fennel flavors). The apple fritter bread pudding was divine! Could not recommend this place more!
Great dinner!The appetizers were great. Smoked olives? What?Best mac and cheese we’ve ever had.The drinks were great.The service was great.The entrees were great (peppercorn strip steak with bordelaise was amazing!).The atmosphere was great. The place was busy, yet quiet enough for comfortable conversation.We were remarking on the way home what a pleasure it was to go out to a restaurant and not be underwhelmed. Heck, we are satisfied if we are even whelmed. We were very pleased, and we’ll definitely be coming back!
The service and atmosphere were really great. Loved the vibe in the backroom from the mood lighting to the flamenco music soundtrack. My partner and I had the cauliflower, bean dip, chicken, and some cocktails. The food was tasty and the drinks were made well. We will definitely visit it again to try more of their menu.
This was once Little Radio. The transformation to West 122 is impressive. Everything from the decor, service, food and wine is outstanding
The food was excellent. It’s a great place to cozy up for a quiet meal or glass of wine. We will definitely be back.
Everything was amazing. Pork chop was out of this world- Brussels were so good. Definitely try this place out!
For the best pork chop in a wine-mushroom Demi glacé you have to go to West 122. Every morsel is incredible. Just incredible.
Finally tried West 122 and was so delighted!! Great happy hour and I had the most amazing pineapple gimlet!!! Hands down a new favorite!! The mac and cheese is to die for and made with homemade marscapone! Can’t wait to return!!!
Had to write another review because I gotta say my peppercorn steak took me 30years into the past of memories of making my own steak as a child and being so pleased with my effort . The only place you can go to experience something like that is a restaurant where they put so much passion and care into the food that you have an almost spiritual experience. No one cares in this world not your mechanic not your boss not the clothing store nor the bill collectors Chefs are the artists and priests who serve with love and when they do it is felt and it goes deep im at a loss for words on how to describe my experience at west122 but I just want to say thank you for your love thank you for your devotion and thank you for sharing your art with me tonight . My wife and I have a new eternal memory to enjoy thanks to you!! Wow wow wow the Brussel sprouts and that sauce the drinks and everything wa so great !!!
This place is super classy and super comfortable the chef is the heart of the kitchen and this one has a lot of love to offer the menu feels like choices from personal flavor of the seasons selection. Fresh and vibrant just takes you on a journey my wife and I enjoyed a wonderful meal and everything we had was excellent service was quick too love to have found a quality restaurant like this againafter so many disappeared in the past few years !!!
What a hidden gem! We had a date night here on Saturday, and it was amazing. Service was great even though the place was busy, and the staff was very friendly. We had the white bean hummus, which was surprisingly delish.For mains I tried the mixed seafood skewers which came with a pepper sauce that was so good I thought about just licking it off the plate. My wife had the spaghetti and meatballs, which sounds boring, but man was it ever tasty! For dessert we tried the apple fritter bread pudding, and it was so yummy that I kept accosting people who were walking in as we were walking out and telling them to order it for dessert. It was THAT good!We also had some cocktails - I had the Grapefruit Something, which was one of the most well balanced drinks I've had in a long time.Everything about this place had the same trend - it seems like it is going to be like everything else but it is so much better than expected. Definitely going to come back!
First time visiting for my wife's birthday, the food is amazing. The scallops were cooked to perfection, the smoked olives were delicious, overall everything we ate was amazing and the service was great. Thank you Patrick. We'll definitely be back.
Wonderful experience! The portions are BIG and the food is amazing. We will definitely be back!
First time at West122 last night and we loved it! The PORK CHOP is legit. Atmosphere and service was excellent. We look forward to coming back soon!
Amazing in every aspectThe apple fritter was out of this world
