My filet mignon was burned on top and for this price it shouldn’t have been.

By far the best meal I had in Montreal. We were sitting by the window and had a great view of the beautiful street it’s on. Inside is just as wonderful to look at. I had the tortellini and my husband had the seafood risotto. It was fantastic. I wish we had one of these restaurants out west. I would def recommend anyone go here.

From Toronto, came to Montreal from a mini vacay, W&G is always on my list of restaurants to visit in Montreal. One of my favourite places to go too and I also Recommend it to friends. The food is always amazing and the pesto with the bread is outstanding. The atmosphere is very lively Looking forward to my next visit , see you soon!!!

Whoever is choosing the music has no idea what he is doing. Playing the Hansen Brothers and backstreet boys in an italian restaurant with a wide choice of wines is a disgrace to the establishment. The food was very bland. The 'homemade' pasta was sad as it lacked taste and seasoning. Store bought pasta would have been better. Im a cook and ive had better pasta for almost hafl the price. The only good thing about WG is that the restaurant is nice estethics wise and the service was 5stars. The food and music ruined for us. Not coming back here.

We asked the 1st waiter for Children’s menu, had to ask again for it, service other than that was ok.
All the managers (Far too many) seem very angry with the staff for some unknown reason. Which makes the atmosphere very awkward. Overall was good not outstanding but ok.

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!
