Unfortunately the service was very poor. We waited for 15-20mins at our table to even get our drink orders in. The food was good and wine was good value. It was not terrible but I would not eat here again. There are better places in Montreal to enjoy a meal.

The food and service was really good but the downfall of this restaurant is the amount of people the cram into each space. Our table was next to a staff work station/ice station and there was constant food and glassware being picked up and dropped off which ruined our experience.

Service and food are excellent - the open style of the restaurant means it’s very loud. Probably not a venue for a romantic evening, but well worth the visit otherwise

We had lunch here on a Sunday afternoon. Our waiter was very pleasant but not attentive (took a very long time to get our bill). The warm bread to start was very nice! We had a pizza and a pasta, which were both fine but nothing to write home about. Given some of these reviews I expected the food to be Little Italy quality food. Overall it was a decent experience.

The food was good, but being unfamiliar with the spot, it felt like a “chain” restaurant.

I went with six other people so there was a group of 7 of us. We all got a pizza to share and then got individual pasta dishes. I got the fungi bosco, and it was solid. The only I didn’t like was when the guy with the cheese went around and asked us. I told him no cheese and then proceeded to put a lot of cheese on my pasta. Some of us got dessert too. The apple cobbler and maple ice cream was alright, and the chocolate cake and cheesecake looked solid.

Waitress was very unprofessional yelling and screaming at a busser near our table. Dropped the wrong food down for dinner. In my appetizer, my shrimp was raw. Would not recommend

By far the best meal I had in Montreal. We were sitting by the window and had a great view of the beautiful street it’s on. Inside is just as wonderful to look at. I had the tortellini and my husband had the seafood risotto. It was fantastic. I wish we had one of these restaurants out west. I would def recommend anyone go here.

From Toronto, came to Montreal from a mini vacay, W&G is always on my list of restaurants to visit in Montreal. One of my favourite places to go too and I also Recommend it to friends.

Whoever is choosing the music has no idea what he is doing. Playing the Hansen Brothers and backstreet boys in an italian restaurant with a wide choice of wines is a disgrace to the establishment. The food was very bland. The 'homemade' pasta was sad as it lacked taste and seasoning. Store bought pasta would have been better. Im a cook and ive had better pasta for almost hafl the price. The only good thing about WG is that the restaurant is nice estethics wise and the service was 5stars. The food and music ruined for us. Not coming back here.
