Our servers were polite, charming, and funny, the food was of great quality and tasted amazing! Our cocktails were well-made. Everything was served quickly, and didn’t have to wait too long for anything. Would definitely go back!

A very large restaurant opposite Churchill’s bar the restaurant is over 3 floors. Very good selection but not authentic Italian more modern Italian but very good and very large portions. The waitress was great her name was Alexa very friendly and helpful. This restaurant is worth a visit

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.

It took 50 minutes after we ordered to get our mains. Food came to the table unevenly. Quality was good of not commercial. Cheeses on the charcuterie were pretty dead, salamis were sandwich quality. Mediterranean salad was a bowl of good vegetables swimming in oil and seasonings. Most of all, you just have to suffer the disorganized and indifferent service. Fun location.

We made a reservation, arrived on time, got sat at a table and 15 minutes later we were asked to move. After ordering our food we had to wait over 65 minutes for our entrees to arrive. The restaurant was willing to comp us “one” dessert, but seriously after all that a $7 dessert! Food was average and not worth a 40 minute wait let alone 65 minutes!!

Enjoyed our meal. Grouper special was food. Seafood over pasta was good, but personally thought it was a little heavy in the sauce. Bread and pesto dip was great. Mediterranean salad was awesome. More like an authentic Greek Salas, lots of ripe tomatoes and creamy feta. Very good

Atmosphere was cool, but on the loud side. We enjoyed it very much.

This restaurant was beyond amazing and accommodating. We went for a bachelorette and they were able to accommodate our large group of 14 girls. They gave us a free round of shots as soon as we sat down, and free shots for the bride throughout the dinner. Our waiter was super attentive and funny. We only waited maybe 20 minutes for our food, which was fresh and delicious. Overall amazing experience!!

The staff was actually very nice (it was very busy so we had to ask for more bread & pesto but they were doing as much as they could possibly do to make us enjoy ourselves ). However, we did see that the prices went up for the F1 weekend... You see, we already came a few times and right off the bat we realized that something was wrong when they handed us a different menu (F1 themed menus). We then realized that they raised their prices and we were a bit mad if I'm being honest. Then the food took 40 minutes to come :( At least they told us beforehand that it would be long. However, the food was very good and the ambiance was really nice. Really enjoyed myself ! 100% would recommend !
