Perfect for a dressy/casual date and anniversaries. The ambiance is romantic and southing, the service is phenomenal and the waiters are extremely kind and caring. The food is always delicious and the wait is short.

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 !

We have been here many times before during Grand Prix weekend and is usually a good choice for Sunday night after the race. We reserved for 5 and were meeting another couple, who got there first and were seated already. Unfortunately the table was a 4 top so they had to set up one for 5 which took a while and then the waitress took forever to come back. Food was good and plentiful, but was really hard to talk due to the noise. It was okay.

We love Weinstein & Gavino's whenever we visit Montreal from Boston (once a month!)
Food is fantastic, service is excellent. It can be loud as that is the set up be we love it.
Ambiance is so cool! Crescent Street is so much fun to walk, too.

We went Sunday for a 12:30 reservation..we were a group of 8. Service was excellent...authentic Italian smell upon entering the restaurant..they have a lovely terrace...but we ate upstairs overlooking the street. It was an Italian family get together...so we are picky about Italian cuisine...lol...the younger ones ordered pizza..(special price between 11:00-3:00) ☺️....3 older ones ordered the Osso Bucco special!!!!! On Sunday’s, it comes with a glass of house wine for 24.00$...😱😍😍😍...This is our second visit...AND DEFINITELY NOT OUR LAST!!! See for yourself...Ciao! 😘

There were 15 of us in town for a wedding and we had dinner here on the Friday night before the wedding on Saturday. W&G accommodated several changes to the reservation and had our table for 15 ready for us upon arrival. There was lots to choose from on the menu and everyone enjoyed their food! Our server Catherine was outstanding! She was efficient and friendly! She had no trouble coordinating separate bills for our 3 different families who were scattered separately throughout the table. Thanks Catherine, for making our first night in Montreal more fun! Thanks W&G kitchen for the delicious food!

Every time we visit Montreal we have to stop at Wienstein and Gavino’s for dinner. I’ve been coming here for almost 18 years and love it. This visit on Sunday night was excellent as usual. We had a very friendly and attentive server who took great care of us. The food was delicious and so were the leftovers the next day. Can’t wait to come back again!
