Confused about what it wants to be

Submitted Sunday, March 2, 2014 - 5:08pm [Dine in]

My friend and I dropped in for dinner last night. The room itself is nice looking but the way the entrance door is setup, a gust of cold wind entered the place anytime someone entered.
The menu is not extensive but what we had was well made and presented. My companion had the Ling Cod and I had the Beef Short Ribs. The flavours were well balanced and tasty, properly seasoned and presented. The portions were appropriate for the price.
The issue I had there was that although the room is setup mostly as a restaurant, the staff and ambiance tilt more towards a bar. The music was mostly current or "classic" rock, which is fine for a bar...but if you are actually trying to have a dinner and talk, it was a bit much.
The service was OK, but the server did not know very much about the menu and had to go to the kitchen a couple of times to answer a couple of our questions. The servers were all very friendly but the level of professionalism was definitely lacking.
If you are looking for some upscale bar food later in the evening, then this may be OK, but I would go next door to Glowball for a dinner before going back to West Oak again.
