We were 6 people dining. Food was phenomenal! We ordered a wide variety of appetizers (calamari, truffle garlic bread, prosciutto, beef tartare, caprese salad, grilled octopus) and mains (lamb ragu pasta, gnocchi, chicken parmesan, veal chop, piri piri shrimp, branzino) to share. Food was fresh, homemade and absolutely delicious.

Service was a different story. Waiter kept trying to upsell and even brought the wrong, more expensive bottle of wine because he "misunderstood". Left a bad taste in our mouths. We didnt say anything but would hesitate coming back because of the waiter's sly move.

Food was fantastic though!

We were very disappointed with this restaurant. The room was attractive and comfortable and we had a nice table. The wait staff was friendly but very aloof as we left. We were not asked how we enjoyed the meal as we walked out. We had international guests and the food was embarassing and overpriced. The bread was brought to the table after the appetizers, the ravioli was clearly not the "home made" as stated on the menu and was under-cooked. All of the pastas were swimming in a very commercial pedestrian sauce. I would have expected better food in a diner. The wine was warm and tasted like it had been improperly stored. I will not return.

We had a girls lunch this week to celebrate our friend's new career. We loved the ambiance. The food was fantastic. The staff were amazing. We sat and chatted long after our meal and never felt pressured to leave. I have been to this restaurant a few other times; mostly for lunch and once for dinner. It is always a great experience!

I came here for a dinner with friends we were a group of 4 people and noticeably the youngest ones in the restaurant. We got their at 6:50 with a reservation, and did not have our order taken until an hour after being seating, we sat there constantly ignored by our waiter. When our waiter walked by the table he would turn his back and avoid eye contact. However, tables with older guests who arrived after us both ordered and received their meals before us. The service we received compared to the way older guest were treated was so unprofessional, and left us very disappointed. The food was spectacular, but nothing could make up for not only the lack of attention but also rudeness of the waiter. So much potential in this restaurant, if only all guests were treated with the same attention, and proper customer service was actually received.

Vago never fails to be very good. There's a huge difference between very good and outstanding so I cannot really give 5 stars, but would give 4 1/2 for food and ambience.

The overall ambience is really nice since they renovated.

Service is professional and knowledgable.

We come here often and never leave unhappy.

Highly recommend this restaurant.

Our first time at VAGO and what a breath of fresh air! The food was delicious and freshly prepared. My wife and I shared the VAGO salad, more than enough for two. Main, I went with their home made pasta "Vago Special Sauce" -this was a simple bolognese seasoned with fresh herbs, it's making me hungry thinkin about it. Wife enjoyed her linguine with prosciutto and porcini, think it was call Gigi...not certain. Service was impeccable make sure to reserve a table.

Service was a bit slow to start, but very good once we got our drinks. Grilled octopus and tuna bruschetta were great starters. The orecchiette with lamb and the seafood linguine were delicious. Topped off with a tiramisu today finish a lovely evening.

Place was not busy, food arrived cold. When we complained the manager said that it was hot. The other people tasted the dish and it was. cold. The manager took it back to the kitchen and reheated it, it than became rubbery and inedible. When the bill arrived even though the manager said he would not charge for this dish it was on the bill. The manager was argumentative and impolite
I definitely would not recommend this restaurant

We had a wonderfully delicious dinner at Vago. We were 4 people and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals from appetizers through to coffee. We were 4 people and one of us started with delicious carrot soup, 1 person had a tomato and bocconcini salad that she raved about, another person had a Caesar salad that was very good and my starter was perfectly prepared grilled octopus. Our mains were equally delicious, 2 of us had the veal chop, 1 person had the veal parmigan

The food is always great and the service is so friendly. Everyone makes you feel welcome not just your own waiter. You are not rushed and you are always made aware of dishes not on the menu.
The wine list offers excellent choices.
You look forward to returning as you know you will never be disappointed.

When you arrive in Montreal at 9pm with reservation, you already know that probabiliy you will be almost the last client.
The table was very close to another one with two clients talking in very loud voice and I have to change my seat in the same table.
The restaurant had 6 tables then there is no need to be altogether when it’s wasnt full.
The service very poor. Once you have to stand up to find the waitress after waiting and waiting, something is not going well at all, and very inconvenient when the waitress was texting with her cell phone instated of doing her job.
Food is good, not exceptional, but good enough.
I’ve been there in other occasions and everything was much better than this opportunity.
Before I left, I passed the message to the waitress and he offered me to call the manager.my answer was, sorry I just came for dinner, nothing else. Thanks
