Seated promptly upon arrival. Wait staff was fabulous and the food was great! I had the Osso Bucco which was melt in your mouth done to perfection. I highly recommend this place and will return.

Our food was good. They seated us near a window which was fun to look out. The wait staff were attentive and knowledgeable,
I would go back.

The staff was actually very nice (it was very busy so we had to ask for more bread & pesto but they were doing as much as they could possibly do to make us enjoy ourselves ). However, we did see that the prices went up for the F1 weekend... You see, we already came a few times and right off the bat we realized that something was wrong when they handed us a different menu (F1 themed menus). We then realized that they raised their prices and we were a bit mad if I'm being honest. Then the food took 40 minutes to come :( At least they told us beforehand that it would be long. However, the food was very good and the ambiance was really nice. Really enjoyed myself ! 100% would recommend !

We have been here many times before during Grand Prix weekend and is usually a good choice for Sunday night after the race. We reserved for 5 and were meeting another couple, who got there first and were seated already. Unfortunately the table was a 4 top so they had to set up one for 5 which took a while and then the waitress took forever to come back. Food was good and plentiful, but was really hard to talk due to the noise. It was okay.

Très déçu. La commade de nourriture fut très longue sous prétexte que c’était le rush d’un concert au Centre Bell plusieurs clients ont reçu leur commande avant nous alors qu’ils sont arrivés après.

Everything about this place was top notch...both kids (17 and 15) said their pastas were possibly the best ever. I had the short rib...soooo good.

We love Weinstein & Gavino's whenever we visit Montreal from Boston (once a month!)
Food is fantastic, service is excellent. It can be loud as that is the set up be we love it.
Ambiance is so cool! Crescent Street is so much fun to walk, too.

We went Sunday for a 12:30 reservation..we were a group of 8. Service was excellent...authentic Italian smell upon entering the restaurant..they have a lovely terrace...but we ate upstairs overlooking the street. It was an Italian family get together...so we are picky about Italian cuisine...lol...the younger ones ordered pizza..(special price between 11:00-3:00) ☺️....3 older ones ordered the Osso Bucco special!!!!! On Sunday’s, it comes with a glass of house wine for 24.00$...😱😍😍😍...This is our second visit...AND DEFINITELY NOT OUR LAST!!! See for yourself...Ciao! 😘

There were 15 of us in town for a wedding and we had dinner here on the Friday night before the wedding on Saturday. W&G accommodated several changes to the reservation and had our table for 15 ready for us upon arrival. There was lots to choose from on the menu and everyone enjoyed their food! Our server Catherine was outstanding! She was efficient and friendly! She had no trouble coordinating separate bills for our 3 different families who were scattered separately throughout the table. Thanks Catherine, for making our first night in Montreal more fun! Thanks W&G kitchen for the delicious food!

I've been to this restaurant several times for work lunches and never been disappointed. In a large group, we're often in and out in less than 90 minutes. The food is good. The waiter always amazing. And the ambience always perfect.

The waitress was very attentive without being overbearing. We had very well planned out meal. The Caprese Salad was shared between three people then I got the salmon with linguini and it was delicious. We are planning to go back tonight. I would recommend this restaurant

Every time we visit Montreal we have to stop at Wienstein and Gavino’s for dinner. I’ve been coming here for almost 18 years and love it. This visit on Sunday night was excellent as usual. We had a very friendly and attentive server who took great care of us. The food was delicious and so were the leftovers the next day. Can’t wait to come back again!

There is something seriously lacking in both the quality of the food and the service here. Guests are treated poorly by wait staff who seemed apathetic at best. My twins were celebrating their 15th birthday here and do you think the waiter could manage to coordinate two pieces of cake with a sparkler in each? If you guessed no, you'd be right.

I order the pasta with shrimp in a lobster bisque sauce. I can guarantee that sauce never encountered a lobster. Definitely not word the $24 I paid. Very disappointing experience.

Always enjoy having a meal with friends and colleagues at W&G's. Service is always great. Food is great, and is in the centre of Crescent St. It is my default option when visiting Montreal for work and taking out clients.
