Service was great. Very friendly staff. I ordered the lasagna di carne, which was delicious and very filling. My wife had the gamberi macchiato, which was quite good as well... Ambiance was very nice, but it’s quite a busy place and can get very loud inside. Overall, it was a good experience and I would go back again.

This was one of the best dining experiences we have evr had! Every part of the evening was perfect. This beautiful old building with impressive high ceilings meant we could dine in a open area and still have our privacy and hear each other talk in a full dining area. The service was exceptional, fast, attentive. My husband and both worked many years in the hospitality industry. We are rather critical of the food and the service when we go out. There was nothing about this evening that wasn’t perfectly done. Thank you W&Gs!

I really like the feel of the place upstairs. We ordered pizza which was very good but the Mac & Cheese with poached Atlantic lobster wasn't hot enough, was too salty and it was a bit "fishy"... this time.

From Ottawa. Always enjoy going to W&Gs. We sat downstairs and had the same waiter that we have had several times - told him so - and he is outstanding. A real asset to your restaurant. House was was amazing, muscles were great and so was the pizza. No complaints. Reservation was as requested. Thanks.

The service was horrible. We felt rushed . The server was unfriendly. It was our first time there . We were in and out on an hour . For a Saturday night we had hoped to enjoy a few hours having drinks and dinner. It felt like a factory . The food was ok. I won’t go back based on the poor service for what was not an inexpensive restaurant .

Our service was very terrible. The waiter insisted that he only served drinks for the first 45 minutes before coming to collect or for orders. He seemed overworked.

Ambience was amazing. Beautiful place. Food was amazing, came extremely fast and everything was fresh and homemade. Also extremely good value for what you get (we got parmesan chicken with pasta on the side, 2 servings of huge meatballs, a plate of gnocchi, 2 desserts and a strawberry daiquiri for just about 100$ on the dot!). Will definitely be going back.

Had a wonderful time. Service was very prompt with no issues and they exceeded our expectations. Food was delicious, highly recommend the tiramisu for dessert. It was a busy evening so noise was a bit on the louder side but nothing out of the ordinary on a Saturday evening.

This is a large restaurant that accommodates groups as well as smaller tables easily, but the food is pretty good and the menu easily accommodates vegetarians and meat eaters. The seats near the open Kitchen are fun and a bit quieter. Service was friendly and smooth. Perfect for pre-event dining at the Bell Center as it is easily within walking distance.

I was a little disappointed that our engagement was not as knowledged. I added a note to our open table reservation but it was not brought forward to our server.

Superbe endroit avec ambiance festive et agréable. Les pâtes sont tout simplement délicieuse, le pain est chaud et moelleux à souhait. Le service est cependant pressé. Le serveur semble vraiment "dans le jus", et ne prend pas le temps de voir si nous avons besoin de quoi que ce soit qu'il est déjà parti. Je suis serveuse moi-même, je comprend que l'achalandage joue pour beaucoup, mais il faut voir à ce que les clients ne manque de rien! Bref, je recomande fortement tout de même, car c'était délicieux et somme toute nous avons eu une expérience fort agréable!

Good seatting service, food and ambiance. Very bad service at table. Our server took a very long time getting menus then proceeded to hover over our table. He cleared our dishes the moment they were empty and several times tried to clear partially full drinks in a bid to have us buy more. When we made it clear we didnt want more alcoholic drinks we were presented with our bills (no coffee or dessert offered). Horrible, agressive, service which marred our evening and the experience overall. Will think twice before booking another large event here

I had pasta and I got sick the next morning. It was really horrible, and I am sure it was the pasta.
It was very upsetting and I had to take off work! Although, I like the place, the food was upsetting.

Everything was great! Loved the good and service. Wanted to mention though that this is the second time that a hostess on the second landing (we ate on the 3rd landing), doesn’t wear appropriate attire. Is this her choice or the restaurant that forces her to wear these inappropriate tops? Her top is a negligee, something I’d wear as lingerie. My young kids don’t need to see that when seated or given menus, as she leans over.
