It’s was good but unfortunately there was not enough space for proper social distancing so you were walking into people and not enough space to walk between tables

A-MA-ZING
I loved everything about this experience! Took my girlfriend here for her birthday. Sat by the window with a view of the ocean. The seafood penne was rich, creamy and loaded with seafood! It was 1/3 off all wines Wednesday. #bonus! I've already recommended to several people. Thank you WAG for a very enjoyable evening 💕

We really enjoy eating at the WAG. The food and portions r good. Love sharing a Caesar
Salad - the balsamic drizzle makes it all the more special. We love the location as it looks out on the ocean.

An enjoyable evening, but it was ruined slightly by another table booting back tequila and acting super loud.
We could barely hear each other at times, and we were 10 feet away.

Quick cousin reunion. Love the food as always and the service was fast and humble. Stayed about 15-20 min after paying the bill and felt that we were being watched for not leaving right away. Took away from the experience.

It was a low key Engagement Celebration. Sadly, the quality of the food was disappointing...the appetizers and the food in general were at best, lukewarm. The veges with the stuffed chicken were withered and cold, the fish on the tacos were burnt and black in many places. It was too bad as we have visited your restaurant and The Cabin (which we believe you also own) and the food was so much better. Our server was lovely and did a great job!

I was very disappointed that our special request couldn’t be honoured!!!
We had requested a table at the window facing the ocean. When we arrived and where seated we advised that didn’t reserve tables by requests. Really !?!!?! Then don’t have it on your open table request page!
WAG is one of my favourite restaurants so was very disappointed
Also since you asked the meal was perfect except the veggies were cold and soggy. Been sitting too long .

Superb food in an airy Covid-attuned limited occupancy setup. Not directly on the beach, but quite close. Free parking. On the second floor of a historic building ... no elevator.
The seafood hotpot is my favourite ... worth the drive from Vancouver!! Terrific salads and seafood pastas too. Very friendly helpful service.

I have been to the WAG many times and it never misses. The atmosphere was great, especially given the adjustments they have made for COVID safety protocols. They do the Steelhead salmon to perfection and is worth going back for over and over.

Not sure of why, but the service did seem a bit slow, although not on the annoying
side. Other than that the food was excellent and the location speaks for itself.

The service and food are always spot on. If I had to search for a complaint it was that we weren’t sitting with a view of the water (not everyone can and that’s understandable!) But the lack of view didn’t change the fact that the meal was wonderful and our server was pleasant and attentive.

Our visit was disappointing. I was very excited to take my family to WAG for dinner as I had heard only good things about it. Our visit started off very well with a very friendly greeting and prompt seating at a lovely outside table next to a window with an amazing view and breeze.
Unfortunately we found the service to be slow. The food was mediocre and 2/4 meals contained undisclosed bacon and when remade were disappointingly, not cooked to order. One of the remade meals contained a non food item and was sent back again. This meal was graciously removed from the bill but left a bad taste in my mouth for the WAG. After finishing our desserts and having our table cleared we probably spent another 15 mins waiting patiently for our server to bring our bill. Our server and what appeared to be the manager were very apologetic and hoped that we would come again and give them another chance... I feel that is unlikely...
