We are regulars at this restaurant. Good food, reasonable prices, good selection. Can be noisy but view is great. Good live entertainment some nights. Sit close to entrance if you want to hear them.

We have been to WAG many times and decided to go there for our 60th birthdays (three of us)

While this has been a favourite restaurant for us, for some reason it was underwhelming this time. Food was ok but not memorable, server the same. I had the Pecan Crusted Steelhead Filet which had little flavour at best. Mussels were good, calamari undercooked, bread was limited. Our friends had the Ribs and Seafood Pasta and they said they were excellent.

We will go back and try again, maybe it was just an off night and we picked the wrong menu items.

Our date night experience was great. We received a warm welcome, were shown immediately to our table and were greeted by an amazing server (Sandy).
The food was delicious and Sandy really helped us have a great experience.
Thanks WAG!

I love this restaurant. The food is consistently delicious. On this occasion I had the lamb shank which was awesome. The only under whelming food we had were the crab cakes appetizer. They were not the greatest, over fried and fishy tasting so will not order in future, but otherwise a great meal. Nice table too!
Thank you, and we will be back!

WAG is a place that's always consistent. Never a bad meal and the atmosphere is great. Just good all around. I'm sure a first visit will always turn into subsequent ones for those new to the restaurant.

Had received a gift card as a gift and after dinner was done was told it was not allowed to be used. 3 weeks earlier I was allowed to use it? What's the sense of having a gift card if it has restrictions.
That's like saying you can't use your starbucks card if you have milk in your drink.

Quite busy as there was a kids Xmas party taking place in addition to a fairly large volume of other customers.
Having said that two people at our table ordered the beef dip and the quality of the meat was very poor as was whatever sauce was in them. I had a smoked chicken club and the bread was soggy and the sandwich overall not very flavorful.

I love the location, but everytime I eat here the food isn't that good. My rice was raw and my fish was over cooked. Before i've received food that was over seasoned and sloppy. The staff are very nice and the ambiance is really nice. Close quarters make it very loud though. Over all, its okay. For someone who has never been to whiterock, its a good place.

I love this place from the moment I walk into the front door with the great ambience. We had a nice table for 4 by the window on a busy Saturday night but it wasn't too loud and we were well taken care of all night. We had multiple cocktails, appies, wine, dinner and coffees - every bit of it was great for everyone. Our bill was ~$140 for 2 people before tip, very reasonable and worth every penny.
