Extremely loud. We were initially seated at a table that no-one should ever be offered - right next to a large sink full of ice from which the servers scooped ice for their water jugs. The food was mediocre at best except for the perfectly cooked vegetables. The panna cotta was the worst I've ever had -- a gelatinous mass without the promised pumpkin flavour. When the waiter asked how it was, I told him. He replied, defensively "it's home made". No apology, no offer to take it off the bill. In a city with so much good food, it's beyond me how this place survives.

Service was very attentive and much better than you’d expect at a lively mass seating restaurant. It was excellent actually. Food reflects the made for the masses with little taste. Food was lukewarm when it arrived. Shrimp were big but doused in commercial bbq sauce, rice pilaf was bland and cold. Presentation was nice. Pizza was cold. House salad could have been a winner had it not been covered in commercial dressing.

La nourriture était excellente sauf que le service n’était pas impeccable on se sentait bousculé par les serveurs. Même que mon frère a renversé du vin lorsqu’il en servait à sa copine quand le serveur apportait les plats.

We enjoyed everything except where we were seated. We had indicated we were there for a date so they seated us next to a family and next to the service area?? Didn’t make sense to me. There were a lot of good dining choices do we made the best of it.

With a limited menu offered on Sundays and bland food, the restaurant did not meet our expectations. Would not return. Service was fine, but took some time, even though the restaurant was more than half empty.

A next old time feel, feels like an old pub on the first floor, with seating also on a second and third floor, lots of old wood, exposed brick, just neat. Service was attentive and food was great, prices reasonable.

This was the 3rd time we have come here pre concert at the Bell Center. Food is generally good and ambiance and service is good. Dinning area is large multi story so it’s easy to get a reservation. This time around I got the Snapper Risoto special and the snapper was like rubber. Waiter didn’t check on us much an we were in a hurry so I didn’t complain the risoto and veggies were good. Wife got the seafood pasta and kids got pesto and lasagna which were good. Over all it was just Ok this time around which makes me think we will think ahead and try something different next time in Montreal.

We were looking for an Italian place in the downtown that was open on Sunday when we stumbled across W&G. We reserved online and were ushered in immediately upon arrival. We ordered appetizers, pasta mains and dessert. Everything was delicious and wasn't outrageously priced. Huge wine list. We were inside where it wasn't super noisy - music was noticeable but it wasn't blaring. Outside you would probably get a bit of noise from neighbouring bars and restaurants. All in all, an outstanding meal. Would definitely go again if we are ever in Montreal and would recommend to others.

Atmosphere good, food good, value good. Bartender service good. The waiter offered poor service.
Friendly introduction, and answered questions on the menu. From appetizer served to end of meal waiter made no contact, had to flag down another waiter to refill water glasses empty over 10 minutes. Very inattentive service. Waiter joked when bringing payment machine. ( Needed service not humour). Generously left 15% for poor service. Upon pulling receipt off machine waiter placed a receipt on table and
said nothing, no thank you or even goodbye. One would expect better service from this establishment.
