Wienstein & Gavino's
With three levels, it offers everything from a unique open kitchen with a large outdoor terrace to a fabulous bar.
Wienstein & Gavino's satisfies all tastes, serving pizza from a spectacular oven, homemade fresh pasta and other Italian favourites while maintaining a rustic Mediterranean atmosphere.
I really like the feel of the place upstairs. We ordered pizza which was very good but the Mac & Cheese with poached Atlantic lobster wasn't hot enough, was too salty and it was a bit "fishy"... this time.
AMAZING. A just try when in Montreal. Ambiance amazing, staff amazing, food outstanding & amazingly priced.
From Ottawa. Always enjoy going to W&Gs. We sat downstairs and had the same waiter that we have had several times - told him so - and he is outstanding. A real asset to your restaurant. House was was amazing, muscles were great and so was the pizza. No complaints. Reservation was as requested. Thanks.
The service was horrible. We felt rushed . The server was unfriendly. It was our first time there . We were in and out on an hour . For a Saturday night we had hoped to enjoy a few hours having drinks and dinner. It felt like a factory . The food was ok. I won’t go back based on the poor service for what was not an inexpensive restaurant .
Our service was very terrible. The waiter insisted that he only served drinks for the first 45 minutes before coming to collect or for orders. He seemed overworked.
Excellent food and atmosphere. Server was inattentive as he seemed too busy. He came to take our meal order without asking if we’d like cocktails or wine...we felt rushed.
Great for Valentine’s Day! Food was great and ambience was nice! Definitely will consider for next time.
I love this restaurant - excellent service, great atmosphere, lovely decor, and awesome food. I look forward to returning!
Ambience was amazing. Beautiful place. Food was amazing, came extremely fast and everything was fresh and homemade. Also extremely good value for what you get (we got parmesan chicken with pasta on the side, 2 servings of huge meatballs, a plate of gnocchi, 2 desserts and a strawberry daiquiri for just about 100$ on the dot!). Will definitely be going back.
The food was delicious and the service was quick. Overall, I was very satisfied with the restaurant.
Always amazing everytime I go, my boyfriends favourite restaurant so we took him there for his surprise birthday dinner.
He loved it.
We’ll be back soon.
Super service! la serveuse éait amicale et efficace!
Had a wonderful time. Service was very prompt with no issues and they exceeded our expectations. Food was delicious, highly recommend the tiramisu for dessert. It was a busy evening so noise was a bit on the louder side but nothing out of the ordinary on a Saturday evening.
This is a large restaurant that accommodates groups as well as smaller tables easily, but the food is pretty good and the menu easily accommodates vegetarians and meat eaters. The seats near the open Kitchen are fun and a bit quieter. Service was friendly and smooth. Perfect for pre-event dining at the Bell Center as it is easily within walking distance.
Loved the food. Environment was great. I would highly recommend!
I was a little disappointed that our engagement was not as knowledged. I added a note to our open table reservation but it was not brought forward to our server.
Always a great spot for dinner. We sat next to a very loud table and probably should have asked to be moved, but overall it was a great spot on a snowy night
Excellent service, good food and reasonable prices, even for the wine.
Superbe endroit avec ambiance festive et agréable. Les pâtes sont tout simplement délicieuse, le pain est chaud et moelleux à souhait. Le service est cependant pressé. Le serveur semble vraiment "dans le jus", et ne prend pas le temps de voir si nous avons besoin de quoi que ce soit qu'il est déjà parti. Je suis serveuse moi-même, je comprend que l'achalandage joue pour beaucoup, mais il faut voir à ce que les clients ne manque de rien! Bref, je recomande fortement tout de même, car c'était délicieux et somme toute nous avons eu une expérience fort agréable!
Très bon accueil, la serveuse très souriante
Le plat de pâtes Funghi Di Bosco était délicieux je recommande à 100%
It was overall a great choice of restaurant. The only thing that I would say is that it was quite hot at times.
Very good food, but it seemed like we were being rushed to finish and get out
The power was out when we arrived. They made the best of the situation. Also, gave all guests a complimentary shot when power came back on.
Really great spot downtown for large groups! The service for our group of about 15 was fast, and the food was really good.
Loved it for our bachelorette party! Happy hour was fantastic, dinner delicious and plentiful with lots of options, awesome friendly service and fun! Fabulous experience all round.
Great restaurant - the food was very tasty & well presented.
Servers super attentive & great
Good seatting service, food and ambiance. Very bad service at table. Our server took a very long time getting menus then proceeded to hover over our table. He cleared our dishes the moment they were empty and several times tried to clear partially full drinks in a bid to have us buy more. When we made it clear we didnt want more alcoholic drinks we were presented with our bills (no coffee or dessert offered). Horrible, agressive, service which marred our evening and the experience overall. Will think twice before booking another large event here
I had pasta and I got sick the next morning. It was really horrible, and I am sure it was the pasta.
It was very upsetting and I had to take off work! Although, I like the place, the food was upsetting.
Everything was great! Loved the good and service. Wanted to mention though that this is the second time that a hostess on the second landing (we ate on the 3rd landing), doesn’t wear appropriate attire. Is this her choice or the restaurant that forces her to wear these inappropriate tops? Her top is a negligee, something I’d wear as lingerie. My young kids don’t need to see that when seated or given menus, as she leans over.
FOOD AND AMBIENCE WAS TERRIFIC, HOWEVER, THE SERVICE COULD BE BETTER.
New year eve this year was really great .. big thanks for this amazing night
Went there on NYE, the service was THREE hours long, the food took way too long to come, I understand that it gets busy during those times but they could be more organized... they were more eager to cater for rich-looking people than ordinary diners, would not recommend
Overall nice ambiance, beside that there was not much of a view and the tables are a tad short for anyone above 6’. My date didn’t care too much for the seafood pasta and my lamb rack lacked sides (considering the price). Amazing selection on liquor though. Waiter wasn’t that enthusiastic compared to others that I noticed (I mean who wants to work on NYE?). Still an overall great experience, relative to the majority of restaurants in MTL
Excellent food and service. Highly recommend for a night out
Really disappointing. We have gone to this restaurant for 20 years and will not return. Pizza was just ok and they didn’t bring one of our meals until we were ready to leave and only offered $4 off so I had to speak with manager. Waitress did not handle situation well and was not attentive and did not offer anything as one of our guest waited 1/2 hr for her meal. Sorry, you have been our family go to restaurant in mo freak for years.
Steak was impressive while lasagna was just so-so. Too much noises.
Family Get together. Good times.
It was a wonderful meal, with impeccable and attentive service—precisely why we return on every visit to Montreal!
We liked the place so much for dinner that on our second night in Montreal we went back and it was even better.
Great kids menu as well!!
Our family of four adults enjoyed our traditional Christmas Eve Italian dinner here following Mass. it was wonderful in every way. We ordered pizza and pastas and two of us had gluten free. Everything was delicious.
Edit: Please note Roger, the general manager has kindly reached out to apologize.
We are a family of 4 that have a tradition of going to Weinstein and Gavino’s every December 24th, then go hand out money to the homeless. We look forward to this night so much. However you can rest assured we will continue our tradition in a different restaurant. I reserved with OpenTable with a note “please seat us next to a window”.
When I realized the reservation time was too early, I called in to change it from 6:00pm to 6:30pm. The girl who answered said “yes, I see your reservation. No trouble”. I then saw on the OpenTable app that the change had taken place.
When we got there, the maître d’ was so rude and clearly could not have cared less about our business. He had this pen he was chewing on constantly, said my reservation didn’t exist (I had to show him my OpenTable confirmation, as well as the time stamp of my phone call to prove it!!!)
In regards to being seated by the window, he said: “pffft. That ain’t happening”. I was jaw-dropped. He finally gave us a table and spoke to us like it was such a huge favour.
Our waiter kept us waiting for so long between courses and for the cheque. We literally felt like an after-thought and like our business wasn’t good enough.
The food was good, I can’t complain on that front. I am so disappointed in our Christmas Eve dinner.
