    The food at Wienstein & Gavino's is always great, but the restaurant is so popular (especially on the weekend) that it tends to feel rather crowded at times. Still good service and top-notch experience, though.

    Overall, the experience was ok, but I had reserved 8 PM to avoid waiting with my group and we have waited until 8h45 to get our tables. The service was poor, nobody asked us if we would have like a drink until about 10PM! Ambiance was good, but loud a bit.

    Beautiful restaurant and good food not great but good. Very busy we were at table 36 which was on the top floor and our table was in the middle you had to make sure your elbows we in at all times or the speedy staff would knock right into them. It was not what I expected as this place came highly recommended it was nice but not "a must dine there" type of place. The staff were very friendly and the place was very well decorated.

    The food was okay, I'm a vegetarian/vegan so there wasn't too many options on the menu. However, I had a salad and it was great! We went there for my friend's bachelorette and the staff was very attentive to our needs. They found us a table in a more secluded corner of the restaurant and our waiter was really nice. I would go back again anytime, the prices were reasonable and the atmosphere in the restaurant was great as well, with some background noises but not super loud, nobody can hear themselves talk, music. Thank you again for that great evening!

    A reasonable meal, but in a very loud atmosphere. Spaghetti (ai funghi) didn't taste like traditional pasta. Most annoying thing, when I reviewed the bill, was the $2.00 charge for (5 or 6 little) anchovies on my Caesar salad. Given that anchovies are a normal part of this salad—although many people refuse these—I don't understand why the extra charge. Petty.

    This restaurant was amazing. I had no idea it even existed until I discovered it on opentable but I am so glad that I found it. We arrived almost an hour early but were still seated right away. The bread and pesto at the beginning was delicious and the service was quick. It is a beautiful restaurant and we received our meals less than ten minutes after ordering it which was amazing. The seafood risotto had be drooling and I would definitely go back. The whole experience was perfect.

    The food was actually pretty good, unfortunately the service kind of ruined our overall experience. We felt rushed, unattended to, ignored. The space is very cool, and it is a good place for kids, good prices....not sure we'll go back, we might, but there are a lot of great restaurants in Montreal and we usually just repeat our favorites.

    The food was absolutely delicious and went above our expectations. We also had alcoholic beverages which were great. It is a little pricey but worth it for what you get. The only downside was our waiter was very rude and did not seem to care about us at all! He was not helpful and acted very condescending towards me and my family.

    My spouse and I went to WG for a nice romantic dinner. Our server was very good and fast yet didn't offer salads or appies. My meal was not very flavorful it was bland (fettuccine Alfredo with chicken) my spouse had the chicken Parm and it was very good. We Loved the atmosphere and mature serving staff was very efficient and ran like a well oiled machine, we just felt as though we were being rushed thru. I would try Weinstein and Gavino's again

    We had ordered an entree to split amoung us and we never received it. When the waiter realized it he even bother asking if we still wanted it. Daaahh it's called an entree, of course not. The fettuccine Alfredo was fadd and my husband ordered a palliarda with a side of spaghetti, figuring it was going to be red sauce, but got pesto. (The waiter should have specified that it was pesto & not red sauce). He did not digest his meal and had an upset stomach till the next day. For the ambiance lets say that maybe it was very noisy because there was a hockey game, we could bearly hear each other if we did not speak loudly.

    First time there but won't be our last and we have already recommended this restaurant to our friends from Ottawa. The food was plentiful and well priced, ambience was also great. We lucked out and ended up sitting by a window on the second floor which over looked the street below. Our service was amazing as she was very friendly and had excilent recommendations for other attractions and places to eat breakfast.
