  • "Took our friends from out of town to the WAG for a nice dinner.. they were so impressed! The view is always great and the service was good as always. Food was yummy although mine was slightly cool .. busy night so maybe it sat for a little while before being brought out. Joining the mailing list and getting our birthdays registered is a must.. free dinner around your birthday!!"

  • "we have eaten here many times but this was probably the worst for quality of food, main entree, four of us had the halibut, off the menu and the special, severely over cooked. We did not even stay for dessert. Ken"

  • "We enjoyed the dinner at the restaurant except for having a couple beside us who had some drama going on. Had to keep my face to my plate as every time I looked up she was in tears. Very upsetting. They had the window seat so could not enjoy the view. We were placed beside two planters with Lavender, almost dead. If you are going to have plants take care of them. All in all the food was good."

  • "We have been to the Washington Ave Grill many times and keep coming back...one of our favourites."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The one disappointment we had was that we did not get a window seat as requested. It seemed even though we made a resservation, no specifc table was held for us. If you make a resrevation, you should get a preference of a window seat as opposed to the people that walk in randomly. That's the whole point of making the reservation. Music was great but not enough of it!"

  • "This restaurant was recommended by a co-worker. It didn't disappoint. The food, staff & view were all very good. Dessert was also very good. I had the creme brule & my husband had tiramisu. I would go here again & I would definately recommend this restaurant."

  • "My wife's birthday so wanted to try Washington ave grill with a great view. This was a big mistake. Reservation was for 6 o'clock and the restaurant was not busy at all. Was seated between 2 large noisy group. Other side which was not busy with a better quiet ambience was empty. Ask to move to the other side but was told the restaurant was busy that night and they could not accommodate. My wife is also 8 month pregnant and noise is an issue. Either way we ordered appys at 610pm and received it in 5 min. Entree comes out a few minutes later. "What's the rush?" We were half way done with our meal and 2 servers asked us if we were done with our meals 6 times within 5 mins. Overall felt rushed and will never come again. Out at 645pm."

  • "Lunched with family on the weekend and enjoyed a nice selection of lunch items along with a gorgeous view of the beach at White Rock. Lots of window tables but if you don't get one, the view is still spectacular from most tables. Didn't feel rushed at all...our server was attentive but not intrusive. Great time was had by all! Definitely returning."

  • "Picked this restaurant for a first date due to the good reviews. Had the braised short ribs and my friend had the lobster ravioli. Both were very tasty. Got there for an early reservation so we got a table in the patio area right by the window. Very scenic and romantic! If you get there early there is even a few free parking spots up front. Overall, a great experience! Definitely recommended."

  • "We had a table overlooking the view, and that was great. The food, however, left a lot to be desired. I had the chicken, doused in cheese and cream. The mashed potatoes were the worst I have ever had -- swimming in fat and inedible. The green beans were barely cooked. My two dinner companions were equally unimpressed with their meals -- fat-needs-to-be-trimmed prime rib, with those mashed potatoes again, and the Mediterranean pasta, which was topped with way too much pesto. Our servers were good and the overall atmosphere was fine but don't go to the Washington Avenue Grill if you're hungry or have a thing about good food."

  • "Food and service were very good. Table space for our group of 4 was on the small side. Coffee after the meal was a big disappointment! When we mentioned it to our waitress she admitted it was a common complaint. Our party agreed we would all eat there again but would skip dessert and after dinner coffee in future as it left us with an overall let down feeling."

  • "Ambiance and décor have great personality (somewhat Portland-esque), at least in the main room. Unpretentious and a great spot to go for dinner after a day on the beach. If you're looking for a patio or a romantic evening, this probably shouldn't be your first choice. Patio is glassed in, the view is decent but there are definitely better views on the strip."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Save room for their famous peanut butter pie (one of the only desserts that I order at any restaurant). You can pass on the calamari"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "We come here a lot because the view is awesome , feels like you are on a vacation. The food is always good, pricing good for the quality of food you get . Service and staff always friendly and restaurant is always clean . Since a popular restaurant on the beach most days of the week, you should make a reservation. Free parking which is good as long as you are there early, would be nice to have more. I find the toilets too low & tight space to maneuver plus lots of stairs when a person have injuries ."

  • "Our experience at the WAG was amazing!! The food was excellent and our server was by far one of the best servers i have ever had. The ambience in the restaurant was great and i would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone :)"
