Bistro West: "Chef-driven Contemporary Comfort Food" Bistro West Tip by BLewJay

Bistro West, Carlsbad: 1 reviews and 1 photos


The folks who own the property have created a restaurant whereby everything on the menu is made in-house from only the highest quality and freshest ingredients. It provides guests with a fantastic culinary experience. From pizzas and pastas to burgers and paninis, and from braised meats to the freshest fish, the chef has created a delicious menu that promises to delight everyone.

Favorite Dish: We started off with the Chicken Lettuce Wraps (Sautéed diced chicken with yellow peppers, garlic, green onions, shiitake mushrooms, snow peas, peanuts, cilantro & mint in a sesame-soy sauce & served with iceberg lettuce cups with sides of sweet chili & Thai coconut sauces). For dinner, LJ had the Oven-Roasted Mahi Mahi Macadamia entrée (crusted with macadamia nuts & served with tropical fruit salsa & a sweet rice wine butter sauce) that came with steamed jasmine rice pilaf & sautéed spinach as a side dish while I had the Grilled Flat Iron Steak entrée (with an Asian marinade) that came with sautéed mixed vegetables and steak fries.
