The food here was very good. They had an excellent gluten free menu although they did not offer gluten free bread. The atmosphere was cozy and fun. The staff was friendly and helpful.

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.

Way too noisy, we were yelling at each other to have a conversation, really annoying.
Food was delicious and our waiter was attentive and gave wonderful service.

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.

W & G provided the perfect sophisticated atmosphere for a retirement celebration. The food was delicious and the waiter made excellent recommendations for wine pairings for each of our meals. I will definitely go here again. I also appreciated the option of three different gluten free pasta types.

This restaurant was beyond amazing and accommodating. We went for a bachelorette and they were able to accommodate our large group of 14 girls. They gave us a free round of shots as soon as we sat down, and free shots for the bride throughout the dinner. Our waiter was super attentive and funny. We only waited maybe 20 minutes for our food, which was fresh and delicious. Overall amazing experience!!

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.

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!
