Was really packed the night we went. Place was busy and noisier than normal but all made up for the staff who performed their best to keep things flowing.

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.

A great evening at a wonderful restaurant. The food was delicious, the service was top notch and the view amazing.

We were seated on the enclosed patio area which was not a problem but we found the heaters too hot. The value was reasonable but the wine prices are very high so go on Wednesday when they are discounted.

We would highly recommend WAG to friends.

Although an appetizer was ordered and not delivered, dessert was offered free as a consolation. The beef order came and was not accompanied by a proper steak knife. A 3 minute delay to receive one, resulted in a cooler entree.

Busy Friday evening impacted the service level for the kitchen, bar, and table service. Staff did as well as could be expected and were very pleasant . Good wine list and ambience despite lack of space between tables.

Thank you for a lovely turkey dinnner on Monday. The food we got was very good however when I got the Thanksgiving Special ad, I thought we would be getting three courses, soup or salad, entree, and pumpkin pie! Even though we only got the entree (with no bread for the table) I thought you should have at least offered pumpkin pie as dessert. And even then, the dessert menu did not offer that as a choice either. It was Thanksgiving! That's a tradition! (At least I thought so.) The next time I will check before I reserve.
Thanks anyway, I do enjoy dining at the WAG.

Ambiance is nice but overall the place looks run down. The leather on the chairs was peeling off. I found the food lacking and tasteless. Ordered the seafood hot pot and the Cajun snapper and prawns. Both were lacking in flavour. The hot pot had no snapper or steelhead in the dish which it states it does. This is my second time coming in 15 years and we wanted to give it another try. Disappointed again and don't think it's worth the price.
