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

Food was too salty. Service was pretty good but a tad slow at first, and I got the distinct sense that we were treated second to other customers because as young people we were expected to bring in less money for the restaurant. I want to be clear that no staff member was specifically responsible for that treatment, however!

Not sure I like the change over to a bistro flavor & decor. Sleek & cleaner looking for sure but for us lost it’s charm & romance feeling. The staff are 5 star aiming to please whether they are assigned to our table or not! Nice wine menu but the food menu leaves a lot to b desired....friends feel the same way that the selection is sparse & & no changes allowed unless u r prepared to pay extra for it! Not cool or classy!!

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience at Vago on Saturday night. The big eye tuna bruschetta was very fresh and extremely tasty! Our favourite go-to wine (J Lohr Cab-sauv) was also on the menu so we were thrilled! I had seen on tastemontreal (an instagram page) that someone had a dish of gnocci with half rose sauce and half truffle butter and crumbled sausage, so naturally I had to see if I could get this too. They happily made it for me and let me tell you this was the best thing ever! what a great combination of flavours. Highly recommend! My boyfriend had the chicken parm which he loved as well. The desserts looked amazing but we were way too full from our mains, that being said our server brought us some complimentary limoncello tasters which was a fun way to end the meal (my boyfriend now loves limoncello) and we thought the service was really spot on. Great atmosphere, beautiful interior and surprisingly comfortable yet chic chairs. Perfect for date night, or any dinner out! We will definitely be going back soon!

I booked for two birthdays. We arrived on time. Don’t know how they plan the bookings, but the table we reserved was still having tea at 15 minutes past our set time. We were invited to have only a free prosecco as a complimentary after 20 minutes of waiting. Then 8:30 we wete sitted. If you do two per table per night, the first reservation at 5:30 must be warned they have to leave at 7:50/55 to allow next party to enjoy their dinner. Anyways, bad management and also the people at table knew we were waiting but did not move any faster, so find them rude too. Food is good overall. Our waitress was nice. Just need improvement on logistics and management of reservations and all.
