Great service and the food was outstanding. My wife had the lasagna and barely put a dent in it. I had the Chicken Parm and it was outstanding. Pasta was fresh. Salads were great and the bruschetta was outstanding.

WG was recommended to my husband and myself by the hotel concierge. We made reservations online for 8:45pm on a Saturday night and arrived around 8:40pm. At arrival when I stated we had a reservation for 8:45pm the man looked at his Ipad and said oh your table will be ready for 8:45pm not before. It was very rude they way he spoke to us but we let it pass and waited. We finally got seated at around 8:50pm to a small table tucked away in the corner. We then had to wait for the server for about 10mins before anyone came over to us. The server seemed rushed and not very helpful when we asked about vegetarian options. The food was just okay. Nothing amazing and nothing out of the normal.
The service was horrible. We felt rushed and not wanted. Will not be returning.

I do not usually enjoy Italian restaurants as I do not like pasta, but their pizza was exquisite. Their pasta was also surprisingly amazing! The staff was so courteous and accommodating. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would definitely go again.

Food quality was excellent. The restaurant was very noisy, however (3 floors of seating) and still, there was music playing. Our server made a few errors and I think she just had a difficult time hearing us. No fault to find with the server and hostess/other staff. They were all very obliging. And again, the food was really, really delicious.

I have been here before when traveling to Montreal and have generally enjoyed but this time, our waiter was awful. He was slow, patronizing, and inattentive. Never refilled our water; never refilled our wine; never asked if we needed anything...it was like we were invisible. There are lots of great choices in Montreal - and while the food was good, the service does not make you want to back.

We had been to this place twice for my husband birthday and our anniversary. It’s really nice place to spend some quality time with each other and the food is really good and non expensive. Great service and close to metro station.
I would recommend this restaurant.

What a great warehouse type space-- funky and fun. The food was good and the service was very pleasant: one error in the order just because of the noise in the room, which might be the only drawback. It's great for a lively loud gathering.

My first trip to Montreal and we weren't sure where to eat. Based on other reviews, we made an Open Table reservation at Weinstein & Gavino's. I'm not sure why, but the doorman at our hotel said we should try to sit downstairs (instead of upstairs). We did and it was great. I'm gluten-free and had probably the best GF pasta of my life (penne with pesto sauce). My partner who is not GF, had a veal dish which she said was excellent. Our server, Billy, recommended an Italian red wine which was very good. All in all, Weinstein & Gavino's was a great find for us and I highly recommend it.

Very nice mid-week family meal. The food was very good and plentiful; but the service stood out by being excellent.
We’ll be back to W&G’s!!

Went for New Year’s Eve, what a disappointment. VERY limited offerings, and my $50 filet was the worst possible cut imaginable. Disappointed with the evening. Hate putting bad things online, but it was just a poorly executed, organized and hosted event. We left very disappointed and upset with the night.

Came here recently for dinner. We started with the Italian sausage appetizer. The sausage was good and the grilled peppers were also good. A large loaf of French bread is served to your table while you wait for your entrees. The bread was extremely fresh and the dipping oil with chopped parsley was also good.

We had the rib eye steak and lobster Mac and cheese for mains. This is where the meal stared to slide a bit for us. The Mac and cheese had a lot of lobster in it but it was very bland and did not taste like anything.

The rib eye was cooked to the correct temperature but I could not taste the rub that was supposed to be on it and there was a bit too much char on it. Sometimes had almost a burnt taste to it.

Our meal was also very rushed. In less than two minutes after finishing our appetizer our mains were placed in front of us. It is usually customary for restaurants to give you a few minutes to rest between courses.

This kind of reminded us a bit like Olive Garden. Would probably not return and would try a different Italian restaurant.

Not impressed!! We didn’t get our bread until meals almost over. Service slow. Very loud and not great ambiance. Had to pay extra forbrocolli after removing two vegetables from pasta. Asked for extra Parmesan and waitresss wanted 2$ for it. Cancelled it!! For a 300$ bill should not nickel and dime your guests.

The meal was good, however an extra for 2.50 when another pasta had the I same I gradients but because the meat sauce was ready and I'm vegetarian could not have that one, so I ordered the plain past with tomatoes sauce and extra olives......why 2.50 for a few olives......and the waiter did not tell me there was a charge for extras......the pasta was ok.....at least the price was right.....

Food and service was excellent, as it always is. However, there was a large group table near us that was very noisy, including one individual who refused to sit down, despite being asked to by the servers, and kept walking past our table and disrupting our meal. Additionally, we were seated right near the server's station and my chair was constantly being brushed as the servers walked past. It definitely took away from the experience and made us leave earlier than we would've liked to.
