We enjoyed everything except where we were seated. We had indicated we were there for a date so they seated us next to a family and next to the service area?? Didn’t make sense to me. There were a lot of good dining choices do we made the best of it.

A next old time feel, feels like an old pub on the first floor, with seating also on a second and third floor, lots of old wood, exposed brick, just neat. Service was attentive and food was great, prices reasonable.

Great food and great ambiance. The music is a little too loud, so ask for tables that are upstairs behind the emergency staircase.

This was the 3rd time we have come here pre concert at the Bell Center. Food is generally good and ambiance and service is good. Dinning area is large multi story so it’s easy to get a reservation. This time around I got the Snapper Risoto special and the snapper was like rubber. Waiter didn’t check on us much an we were in a hurry so I didn’t complain the risoto and veggies were good. Wife got the seafood pasta and kids got pesto and lasagna which were good. Over all it was just Ok this time around which makes me think we will think ahead and try something different next time in Montreal.

We were looking for an Italian place in the downtown that was open on Sunday when we stumbled across W&G. We reserved online and were ushered in immediately upon arrival. We ordered appetizers, pasta mains and dessert. Everything was delicious and wasn't outrageously priced. Huge wine list. We were inside where it wasn't super noisy - music was noticeable but it wasn't blaring. Outside you would probably get a bit of noise from neighbouring bars and restaurants. All in all, an outstanding meal. Would definitely go again if we are ever in Montreal and would recommend to others.

Atmosphere good, food good, value good. Bartender service good. The waiter offered poor service.
Friendly introduction, and answered questions on the menu. From appetizer served to end of meal waiter made no contact, had to flag down another waiter to refill water glasses empty over 10 minutes. Very inattentive service. Waiter joked when bringing payment machine. ( Needed service not humour). Generously left 15% for poor service. Upon pulling receipt off machine waiter placed a receipt on table and
said nothing, no thank you or even goodbye. One would expect better service from this establishment.

It took 50 minutes after we ordered to get our mains. Food came to the table unevenly. Quality was good of not commercial. Cheeses on the charcuterie were pretty dead, salamis were sandwich quality. Mediterranean salad was a bowl of good vegetables swimming in oil and seasonings. Most of all, you just have to suffer the disorganized and indifferent service. Fun location.

We made a reservation, arrived on time, got sat at a table and 15 minutes later we were asked to move. After ordering our food we had to wait over 65 minutes for our entrees to arrive. The restaurant was willing to comp us “one” dessert, but seriously after all that a $7 dessert! Food was average and not worth a 40 minute wait let alone 65 minutes!!

Enjoyed our meal. Grouper special was food. Seafood over pasta was good, but personally thought it was a little heavy in the sauce. Bread and pesto dip was great. Mediterranean salad was awesome. More like an authentic Greek Salas, lots of ripe tomatoes and creamy feta. Very good

Atmosphere was cool, but on the loud side. We enjoyed it very much.
