Nourriture infecte: pate trop cuite, plats sans savuers, trop gras pour rien, les desserts sont industriels
L’hôtesse et les serveurs désagréables
10 min pour être placer dans une salle vide et le serveur qui nous stresse pou prendre la comande
Fiasco totale

La farce de la lasagne était bien pauvre en épinards et fromage, j'ai surtout mangé des pâtes avec sauce à la viande. De plus, la sauce à la viande qui accompagnait ce plat était trop salée! Décevant pour le prix de l'assiette! Mon mari et mon fils ont été très bien rassasiés avec leur plat de pâtes aux fruits de mer, portion généreuse et fruits de mer variés en grande quantité!!! Merci beaucoup d'offrir le choix de pâtes de blé entier.

What really saved the experience was the amazing service. Don't get me wrong, food was ok. Not extraordinary but ok for this kind of establishment. Ambiance was nice. Was way too hot but they adjusted quickly after a few complaints so all good. Negative point would be the most uncomfortable chairs. Everyone just couldn't wait to get out because of that which was a bummer for the party.

Le cadre est vraiment superbe et l'accueil est chaleureux et professionnel.
Les plats sont goûteux et savoureux et on ne néglige pas sur la quantité.
Le rapport qualité-prix est très bon.

Service good! Our waiter answered our questions and gave us a good up for a breakfast place to try. Pizza was good with doughy crust, salads were good portions which were large enough to share.

It can be difficult for a restaurant to be noticed in a city with so many great dining options. Unfortunately, the food quality on our visit led this place to stand out for all the wrong reasons. The kitchen struggled to deliver warm eggs - maybe the heat lamps were broken? Maybe they would have done better if it wasn’t a Sunday at 1130am? On a positive note, the restaurant was quick to remove the food item that had to be sent back twice (and the coffee even though the coffee was fine). The pre-meal bread with Olive Oil and Pesto was excellent. And the temperature inside was very comfortable.

Service was great and the ambiance was lively as usual. The rack of lamb was apparently outstanding, the seafood pizza was so so - too dry - and my dish was not good at all. I ordered pasta in an oil sauce and added chicken. Apparently you do not have vermicelli noodles so a spaghetti- like noodle was substituted. The chicken was cold and tasted a day or two old. I will be back as I love this place but you need to pick up your game a bit with the quality of the food.

Tanks was ready when we arrived and with a nice smile while we were seated. Service was outstanding and the Maël was also. Would definitely recommend this place to family and friends, and we will be going back soon! Cheers

We had a group of 9 which they accommodated very well. They separated our checks as we requested. The food was very good. It was very loud which made it hard to visit.

Food is great, only the mashed potatoes were really cold.
The only matter that was upsetting was that they told me they didn't have any reservation under my name, though I showed them the re-confirmation from the day before. Then, I am sitting at the table and they call me from the restaurant asking if I am still coming, so.....
Other than that, the person serving us was amazing and very professional. We had a great time.

Food bland, no taste at all! Fettucine texture is awful, very soggy! Couldn’t eat the pasta by spinning the fork as no pasta would attach to the fork! Pasta sauce was supposed to be creamy, but in reality it was very watery

The server was such mean person to him I was gonna give him tip with cash instead of using my credit card and he started swearing at me immediately and I was like I’m never gonna give tip to him, which made a really bad experience for me and I’m surely not going back to eat there; although, they food was incredibly awesome.

Cool place. Service, not so much. Server didn’t introduce himself at the beginning of the night, and didn’t interact with us at all throughout the night. We ordered a pitcher of sangria to drink which was fantastic and well priced. A plate of calamari which was awesome. We then ordered 2 plates of pasta, but they were very underwhelming, the Gigi and a Carbonara. The Gigi actually had potential but there was so much salt I couldn’t eat it without a bite of bread after every bite. I’m not one to send food back but if the server would have asked how my meal was I may have told him it wasn’t overly edible. Carbonara was okay but made with bacon. Overall I love the atmosphere of the place, would be great for large groups or bachelor/bachelorette parties. I will say the food did come relatively quick. Also, the value was great, prices were very cheap.

Weinstein and Gavino's was an amazing location for a birthday party. The staff was interested in satisfying our interest of staying late by finding a very comfortable table with just enough seats for all of my guests. The waitress who served us provided a perfect service and was very nice and polite. The food was delicious! I appreciated that my parents were allowed to bring a cake for the celebration! Thank you for an amazing service!
