    The food lacks favour, presentation. P shrimp and chorizo pasta was a miss match-lacked flavour, presented as if it was plated by 3 year old. Service was very slow, had to ask for things, including cutlery, multiple times. Skip it

    The fish I had was very good but I had firstordered the lobster ravioli from the table d'hôte which they ran out at 12h00 and substituted spinach raviloli for only a 3$ reduction. That's almost a bait-and-switch tactic.

    Beautiful venue. Excellent service. Great food. I only removed one star because I didn't like the fatty bacon on my pizza and I though it had too much cheese. It tasted great, but a little less than perfect. The staff have obviously been picked well and trained well .

    Very good customer service. I ordered a linguine with chicken parmigiana and my husband the steak, he loved and he was impressed the steak was so good since we were in an Italian restaurant. My pasta also was divine, sauce not citric and pasta al dente. I totally recommend this place for a nice Italian food night.

    We had a reservation for 7 people and they sat us at a table that could fit 5. Our elbows were knocking against each other as we ate. We were also seated on the second floor by the stairs next to the reception. I had asked the hostess if we could be seated away from the traffic and she told me straight out no. We were seated right in front of the Uber eats line and our chairs were being knocked into the entire night. I understand if you come late without reservations, you may have to take whatever seating they have available, but I booked a reservation a week in advance. I also ordered alcohol before our meals arrived and I only received it after the meal had been cleared away and we were waiting for the bill. And of course they charged for it. My favourite meal at Weinstein & Gavinos is the Funghi De Bosco pasta and I ordered it but they had completely changed the meal. It was not good. I asked the waitress why it looked different and she told me that they recently decided to change it. Needless to say, I was disappointed and I did not eat my meal, but again I was still charged for it. I came to Weinstein & Gavinos to enjoy my birthday with family and friends and I left very disappointed. I wasn't even able to enjoy a drink with my friends.

    Excellent food and great service. We’ve been twice; once midweek when we had a lovely, quiet early dinner. Second time was a Saturday early evening. The place gets quite crowded and noisy then - not in a bad way but a bit loud for my taste. But if you’re in the mood, you might enjoy the enhanced atmosphere and the quality of the food and the attentiveness of the staff did not dip so I have no real complaints about either visit. Recommended.

    The complimentary bread was good but hard. The lasagna was not good, noodles were a little hard and not that much flavour. Salad was very good. Drinks were very good. The waiter was very nice and not pushy. Good price.

    We had a lovely early dinner there prior to going to a show. The service was excellent - attentive, friendly and helpful. The meal itself was extremely enjoyable; my wife loved her pasta dish and really appreciated having different pasta options available. My pizza was really good too - the base was a bit thin for my taste but that's just a personal judgement, I'm sure it would be fine for most people and the toppings were generous and tasty. We will definitely go again.

    Started with Calamari, very good and cooked well. My son had the mac n cheese, which was very good, but he even said it was too cheesey... I know it sounds like a good thing, but some of the cheese was clumping together. I had a seafood pizza, which was quite large and very good.

    Overall experience was good. Despite having a 7pm reservation we had to wait until 7:20pm to be seated. Server was attentive and good. We asked for bread thinking it was complimentary as there was no price on the menu, and then the bread was replenished (without our request) and then saw that we were charged $10 for it! Pizza was a little cold- like it has been sitting out for 5 mins after the oven. Apple cobbler tasted like it was prepackaged. Overall fine to good. Many other much better places in Montreal!

    Food is fantastic. I’m still dreaming about the raviolis! There was a line out the door when we arrived and waited almost 20 minutes to be sat even with a reservation. It is quite loud inside, but service was great. We will go back again on our next visit to Montreal!

    The staff are magicians! How they function in such tight quarters and stay pleasant at such a crazy pace is amazing. Checking in with a reservation is hard as you have to wait in the lineup with everyone else. We were 20 minutes late getting seated because of it and under time pressure for a concert. Very inefficient but the staff made up for it. Food was quite good.

    Nourriture vraiment très bonne: bruschetta, risotto aux champignons et pâtes au chèvre chaud. Emplacement de choix avant un spectacle au Centre Bell. Très bonne ambiance le jeudi soir 😃 Les cocktails étaient biens, mais ordinaires et le service était très moyen. Notre serveur voulait bien faire, mais il a été plutôt insistant au début du repas (on avait réservé à 4h30)... Donc laisse-nous le temps de boire nos cocktails et développer notre appétit avant de commander de la nourriture svp. Aussi, en cours de repas, il a commencé à sentir/puer la transpiration 😬

    Great food at a reasonable price, large portions, extensive wine list - although somewhat over priced. Service was excellent. Only suggestion would be to rearrange the dinning area for more space between tables and so that tables aren’t blocking the wine cabinet. The server was constantly passing behind us and we felt like they were going to spill. The table beside us was sitting in front of the wine cabinet and they were asked to pull wine for the servers.

    I really appreciate the Gluten Sensitive menu! And that food was great. But, the bummer of the night was the service received. I was sitting next to the bar in front of the windows and the wait staff did not want to help.
