Server didn’t prioritize our table, felt ignored and think it was because of our age (we were much younger than most tables in the restaurant) and food was good but not worth the price although they are decently big portions. Wine selection was good along with beer selection, and rooftop patio tables are very charming and romantic.

We were celebrating a birthday. We had good service, but I was not very satisfied with my food which was tortellini. It had too much rich sauce which I tried to remove from the pasta but, in the end, I was not
feeling well for the rest of the day and night. I did not mention this to my waitress, so she was unaware.

Good resturant with good service and food. Somewhat limited menu but a fairly wide selection with a choice from most food categories. NOT easily accessible for people with infirmities and very inadequate bathroom facilities for the number of guests and diners.

This was an excellent dinner. We took another couple and they also were very impressed. We all had the three course dinner. The food was all very good and we were very impressed with the value.

We drove from North Vancouver to WAG in White Rock for a birthday dinner. We enjoyed a window seat, the beautiful setting, lovely ambience, great food .... and our waiter was exceptional to boot. Thanks for a special evening! Arlene & Peter

Dinner out with friends. Food was great, as was service. A trio performed tonight (guitar, bass, and mandolin): music provided a nice ambiance and wasn't too loud. Overall, a great meal.

Noise level was too high, there were six of us in our party it was hard to hold a conversation between us.

On the plus side food was good as usual, service was excellent, as we have come to expect

We love the WAG and are frequent patrons. The food has always been wonderful. It was just as great on our last visit. However, on this last visit, we were served focaccia bread prior to our meal and it was burned so much so that we returned it twice. This was a first for us and wonder what could have happened. Also, the first server was new and could not tell us what the beer selections were. I wonder if this could be a training issue. Anyway, we still enjoyed our visit and will certainly return.

I enjoy the food & location. Our waitress initially seated us in the worst possible table in the entire restaurant. (not too sure why as they were not busy) We did asked to be moved & were accommodated immediately. I just felt we should never have been ask to sit in the original table in the first place. The food is always great. Service is very attentive. It was incredibly noisy even though the restaurant was not
that full.

The service was very good so I don't know who messed up: the server or the chef. On our Caesar salad we asked for no croutons and easy dressing. We got neither: there was an abundance of croutons and the dressing was very thick. My friend who as treating me requested that we not lodge a complaint and send it back.

Lovely atmosphere, great food.
Service was okay. We were only asked at seating if we wanted drinks. We said we would start with water. Order was taken and drink list was taken off table and we weren’t asked again. Also never asked how good was. I was opening my birthday gift when asked if we wanted dessert.
