We are never disappointed at the Washington Avenue Grill, the food was delicious and the view is spectacular. The only one thing I would change is that I would love a few more gluten free vegetarian options (because I'm a high maintenance pain in the butt)
It was late afternoon - best time to go and enjoy ! Great food and service . Our fav restaurant in White Rock.
Loved eating by the sea. The food was delicious, the staff were friendly, and it was a nice place to celebrate.
Amazing food and amazing service! We can't wait to come back!
Walked in and we were asked if we had a reservation said yes and our friends were here. Just looked at us like okay go in. Have never gone to a restaurant and not had a server walk us to our table. Had to look for our friends….! Worst customer service….got told 5-6x that we will be kicked out and only have a two hour window.
Going to try another dish. Hopefully it will be better.
Staff was very friendly and attentive. Food was very good as usual,will always come back there
Excellent sooo tender thick cut prime rib. Good pasta and good Creme Brule. Service was pretty fast once the servers figured out whose table was whose.
We loved all of it with one exception we asked for a window table when booking they told us they could not seat 2 at a table of 4. We understood but before we left they had sat two window tables with 2 people at a table for 4. So that was a bit uncool.
Great service. Mediocre food.
I booked this restaurant for a family members birthday. I did put special notes in my reservation to hopefully sit at a good table (maybe with a view) and also to bring out a creme brulee surprise after dinner (one that I had no issue paying for). It was clear that no one at the restaurant read the reservation notes as we didn't get a good table and they had no idea that there was a birthday and to being out the creme brulee after dinner. I had to alert the server of this and then they brought it - so much for the surprise.
Regarding the food, I have to say that it was just okay. I feel they put too much thyme in the bread they serve at the beginning and this makes the bread taste bitter. I ordered the flank steak and it was served with cauliflower and peas (never had that combination with steak before) and I did not enjoy that. I was expecting a bit higher end like maybe asparagus and mushrooms. If I have to compare this restaurant to a Cactus, Earls or Keg, I have to say the latter are better in all respects. The WAG might be good if one is going for some cocktails or some appies as they do have the view.
So nice to see the restaurant filled with happy customers. We enjoyed ourselves.
we have always enjoyed our meal at WAG. The employees on June 11th were very professional and fun. We will definitely return. I am hoping that the plexi glass barriers remain there for some time.
Wasn’t as good as I had experienced there in the past.
We had a great night at the Washington Avenue Grill. Our server was so great and made out night really fun. The food was amazing! Definitely recommend the brussel sprout appetizer and the Seafood Hot Pot!
Our server, Mike, was very attentive and engaging! Food was excellent!
Great food, drinks and service. Haven’t been here in awhile but wasn’t disappointed
The fish tacos were heavily fried - so much that it was difficult to taste the fish. Disappointed.
We enjoyed a birthday celebration and truly appreciated our server being patient with us as we opened gifts and delayed ordering for a few minutes. Thank you!
We love the W.A.G! However, the service was really poor last night. Had a very new server who made a mistake with the wine, and thought it was appropriate to negotiate with the paying customer, hoping we would cover her mistake. Rather than immediately discussing with her manager. She was trying to haggle like she was in market. It was very annoying to an otherwise beautiful meal. It seems there's some training of very young inexperienced staff happening...this particular one is not representing the W.A.G. well. A shame, but thought you should know. Cannot recommend right now.
Generous portions, delicious food, friendly service. Pretty noisy when we first arrived (around 6:30) but tolerable. Server gave us just the right amount of attention.
A memorable evening with delicious food, personable and professional staff and welcoming atmosphere.
My friend and I met for dinner and had the loveliest evening-amazing food, friendly and thoughtful server, amazing setting with the ocean views. Our table was not crowded with other tables, the noise level was such that we could talk with each other easily. I am not a big pasta eater, but the Seafood Penne was awesome! A real gem that is easy to find and just that little bit different and more special. Thank you!
WAG is always a great place to eat. The atmosphere, the amazing view and of course the very tastey food.
Fabulous food, great atmosphere. It was busy (just after the COVID-19 re-opening of being able to eat inside), so service was a little slow. But the waiter was awesome!
Had a lovely window seat with a beautiful view of the ocean. Server was amazing, we were slow to order and she didn't keep bothering us but was right then when we were ready or wanted anything. Food was fantastic. I would definitely go here again. Thank you.
We are regulars & have never had a bad meal. Just think they should have given the birthday girl a little dessert on the house- would have been classy
Foods was superb. Our hostess was great and friendly. Would recommend the WAG to all my friends and family.
Our server was wonderful ! The food was hot and delicious and we will definitely go back
This is a beautiful restaurant. Sadly there is no consistency in the quality of the food. We can have a menu item one time and it’s outstanding, the same item another time is barely average. For example we came back last night for the Caesar salad - it was poor at best. This seems to happen to us a lot.
Although quite busy on a Sunday night and we had made reservation for 4, were initially shown to a poorly located table. When we noticed a table being cleaned and next to window view, we requested to move and were quickly accommodated.
Food and service were great and not rushed to leave when they closed at 9 pm.
Having to pay for parking ($5) seemed odd since giving WAG our business. However, Whiterock is known for limited parking availability.
Great food, the drinks are delicious and great service!! Highly recommend.
Food did not meet my expectations. Poor preparation and misapplied seasonings. This restaurant is on a steady downhill slide.
New to the area and went to WAG based on recommendation. It did not disappoint. Great service, great food, great atmosphere.
Great service and ambiance! Gluten free options were excellent and the rest of our meals were delicious. Our server was very pleasant and helpful. Overall we had a great time!
Food was exceptional! Service was great. Can't wait to go back
Such a nice place! Not to formal, not too casual. Lovely ambiance at night, and tasty, tasty food!!!
Had a lovely evening out for the second time in a year! The WAG always delivers a fabulous meal with excellent service.
Best meal I have had in year's. The service was spectacular.
