    The food and drinks were really good, and our server was good when we first sat down but it got busy and she pretty much disappeared. The environment was beyond energetic… it was annoying. We were seated in the area near the entrance to the terasse and there was a lot of plates being thrown into the bus bins, which got very loud after a while. In addition to this, there was an INCREDIBLY loud table of 4 in the area, and despite the fact one table asked to be moved because of the noise and everyone else was giving looks, no one asked them to be respectful of others at all… disappointing. I would go back if visiting Montreal again because it really was delicious, but would insist on being outside.

    Went to W&G's last night for dinner. Food was great, pizza and appetizer. Limited beer options. Service was good until the end we waited around 30 minutes to get our bill. Waiter was serving people all around us couldn't politely get his attention. Finally came them even after that had to wait longer. My wife left and waited outside. Turned a nice experience into a frustrating one unfortunately. My w

    The service at this restaurant was horrible. We sat for 20 minutes before the server came for a drink order. After taking our food order, the server did not come back until we flagged her down for a second round of drinks. Our food did not come out for over an hour. One persons meal came and the rest of the Parties food did not come for an additional 20 minutes. The server did not check in with us/explain what was happening the entire time. Once all of our food came out, the server again never checked in on us to ensure everything was ok. We had to flag down another person to get our bills, which again took 20 minutes to be be brought to the table. The pizza was good but the pastas were subpar. All in all, not a great experience

    Amazing experience! I shared on my reservation that this was my first trip and a solo trip to Montreal and they were very kind. Great service and attention. The food was amazing especially the calamari. It was tender and chewy! I will recommending this restaurant to all my friends!! Thank you to my amazing server (I do not remember his name) he was just amazing. Great attitude and helped an anglophone like me navigate the menu. Thank you again Weinstein & Gavino’s! I will be back :)

    The food and service were great. Our only criticisms are that it took a while for our main courses to come. The salads came quickly. The restaurant was very busy, so we are sure it was just a case of being overwhelmed in the kitchen. The second 'complaint' was the loudness of the restaurant. Again, it is a popular place, so we had to speak loudly to be heard, which only contributed to the overall loudness of the restaurant.

    Terrible place. Please NOTE that I did not eat the food. It may have been good but I will never know. The hostess ignored us for 10 minutes while she chatted with coworkers even though I told her we had a reservation. Waiters were sprinting through the dining area and jumping off stairs. It was a circus! Waiters were also slamming doors and drawers at the service stations and plates were crashing loudly. Nobody took our order or came to the table for 20 minutes so we left. Awful experience.

    Horrible service from hostess . Asked for table outside. She said none available but would monitor and if one became available could move . 3 tables opened up 10 minutes after we sat down. I flagged her down and asked if we could move before being served. She said the tables were taken but we were there first and did not get one She walked away and all 3 tables were not occupied for almost 30 minutes. She continued to ignore us the entire evening. Meal was fine and waiter was good. Noise is almost unbearable

    We were seated next to the server station and someone dropped a glass which shattered and even found some on top of our table. I no longer felt comfortable eating my meal (Osso Bucco which was quite tasty). A manager offered to replace my meal but my wife was halfway through her meal and I didn't want to wait so I declined but the manager offered to comp my meal which did not happen. When the server brought our bill, which seemed to take forever, no deduction was on our bill. I mentioned this to our server and she said okay. Came back another 10 minutes later with a beer removed and not my meal which was only half done. Not wanting to wait anymore, we settled up and left. Too bad since we were here before and really enjoyed it. Overall not as great an experience as we have had there before but hopefully this was just one of those times where things just do not line up.

    It is a fun friendly place, the wait staff was friendly and efficient. However, it was so open and huge upstairs with no way to dampen the noise that it was hard for members of our party to converse. Atmosphere is “energetic,” true, but some noise dampening panels would go a long way toward making the experience more pleasant. Also adding restrooms upstairs would be very helpful.
