However, videos later surfaced of the rapper talking to a friend who was sitting at the table next to him, just out of the photographer's camera shot.
The pair were later seen exiting the eatery and getting into a car that had pulled up just outside the venue to pick them up.
Over the course of the weekend, the 40-year-old musician engaged in a spot of retail therapy at The Store inside Soho House Berlin.
Choosing the shun the biggest night in music, West was also absent from the 2018 Pre-Grammy Gala, where his on-again-off-again friend Jay-Z received the 2018 Salute to Industry Icons Award.
Meanwhile, West and his wife Kim Kardashian recently welcomed their third child, a girl named Chicago.
