The service was fantastic !
The live band was also amazing
The crab cakes were burnt (the second time we've been there).
Everything else about the experience was fantastic!!!
The drummer even gave our daughter his sticks for her birthday! Nice touch!
I must say I rarely write reviews however, my experience on Mar 17 was absolutely fantastic. I had made reservations ahead of time for date night and requested a window seat for an Ocean view. To my surprise I arrived early amongst a packed restaurant and they had they best seat in the house saved for us. It may seem like a small thing but in world of generally average to poor customer service this made a great start to the evening. The host who appeared to be an owner took a personal approach to making sure we were seated and happy. The food was terrific, my girlfriend lived in Italy for 2 years and loves to cook, to get a glowing 5 star review for the lobster ravioli is not an easy task. I had the pork tenderloin which was delicious. Overall the food, service and ambiance was terrific. For comparison we were at well known steakhouse in Vancouver the weekend before and the value and quality of the WAG that evening was far superior. We will be returning.
Thank you for the great night!
Birthday dinner, service and food were terrific. Waitress suggested some good martinis:). The sunset view over ocean is incredible!
The food and drinks were both great. It was pretty noisy in there though and difficult to chat with the other people across the table. The WAG is always good.
Very friendly & efficient staff. Food was delicious & there was a fun upbeat atmosphere.
Lovely food, great staff, nice atmosphere. Music was slightly loud but didn't effect the evening. Only something we noticed. Would recommend.
Great dining as usual. We are regular repeat customers.
We were celebrating a birthday and We reserved under a Birthday but there was nothing done or mentioned... so that was a little disappointing .
We were there for my wife’s birthday. We received good service and the food was great. We had a very nice evening and really enjoyed this restaurant.
All in all a good night.
Our server (cannot recall her name) made our evening very special. She was attentive, accommodating and very knowledgeable. The meals were also all to our liking. It was a lovely experience. I have dined at the WAG many times and have been disappointed in the past so this was a pleasant upgrade.
I’ve visited this restaurant many times over the past 20 years and it never disappoints. They don’t skimp on the food and the quality is always consistent. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and our server was courteous and polite knowing the perfect time to arrive at our table.
Overall great value
Nice restaurant with ocean views. Old building could use some tlc. Food was mixed.... mussels and seafood hotpot were very good. Lobster ravioli was good but too much cream. Service was attentive and friendly.
Worth a visit. Good service, good food and live entertainment.
We really enjoyed the experience...good energy, great food, great service.
We had a wonderful evening. We have been enjoying the WAG for years!
Great as usual - menu is far better than the Vault’s menu
6 years ago my wife and I made dinner reservation for or anniversary. We were gives a table on an isle way , people kept bumping into our table and the service was nomexsitant . Our waitress was totally occupied with a large group. At one point I had to get up and retrieve my own drinks from the bar. Upon leaving I complained to the manger, he didn't seem to care. He was focused on the large group. We have never been back. Since then we have moved to White Rock and decided to give the W.A.G. Another try. Thank you for making last Monday a special anniversary for us. The food .the ambiance and the service was wonderful. Special thanks to Bobby our waitress. Will put the W.A.G. On our list of special places. Thanks again for a wonderful evening
Food was great. Ocean view was beautiful, and the service was outstanding.
Enjoyed our dinner, as usual. The service was fair, pleasant waitress, just very busy. We were both commenting on how it would be so nice to have more options on the menu, or, it would be nice to see the menu change a bit. Overall, we enjoyed our meal, but, have been there so many times we are running out of new things to try. Thanks
This restaurant has a welcoming atmosphere and great food! Highly recommend a visit. Of course the ocean views and sunsets add to the ambience.
The stuffed chicken is my favourite!
The tables were wat too close together. No privacy. The food was so, so. Not inclined to return.
Our dinner was great as usual. Our server was amazing. Always there when we needed him. Didnt have to wait long for our food and everyone loved their meals.
The WAG never disappoints! I have always had great dinners here, this time it was the Steelhead and it was delicious as was the rice. Food always comes hot and cooked just right. Great ambiance, great staff. Although this time our second server (first one finished) seemed a little stressed & not as friendly. Could of been because the place was packed and she had a lot of tables? This place is perfect for so many occasions, romance, anniversaries, birthdays with a group of friends or just a family get together. I highly recommend everyone try it once, you'll go back!
Snow storm that night but restaurant was still 50% full. Atrium was quite full so we selected to sit just inside that so it wouldn't be quite as noisy. Service staff and well seasoned and experienced which provided quick, accurate orders and attentiveness. Food was served quickly and tasted great. Server checked in with us often, but not overbearing or intrusive. Entertainment was not too loud and provided enjoyable background ambience.
Great place to go without "breaking the bank"...... especially with a WAG coupon or a WAG gift card!
My friend and I were both extremely pleased with our meals. I had the Mixed Seafood Grill which was delish and my friend had the Pecan Crusted Steelhead Filet which she said was outstanding. She has also had the Veggie Ravioli which she said was also delish. We will definitely be dining here again. Booking online is also a bonus.
Definitely an old building but adorable in its own way. We had an amazing time and it was perfect for the two of us to talk softly for a romantic dinner. Appetizers were smaller then expected but good. And the food was amazing
Had an excellent evening and the service was excellent.
Had a very nice evening at the Wag .The service was good the portions were large and the entertainment was very nice.
We had a good experience at this restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed the dinner and atmosphere. My only recommendation is that the place needs to be updated a bit, it is a bit worn. I would recommend some nice lights out the back that would make the view a bit better than just looking at the cars.
Great fish, ribs and pasta. Great service. Seatinga bit tight.
Great place, Great food, unique atmosphere with an ocean view.
Service is always incredible and consistent. No matter what I order the food is spectacular and delicious. Stuffed chicken and lobster ravioli is my top favourites.
It was a birthday celebration (was indicated on the reservation) & it was Valentine’s Day. It was never acknowledged. Also nothing was Valentine’s special but restaurant was packed so must be a popular place. Won’t be choosing it over Boathouse.
Washington Avenue Grill WAG is my favourite restaurant and has been for over a decade. Since I met my wife, I have been taking her to this restaurant and she quickly fell in love with it...and slowly in love with me. I have celebrated many different occasions at the WAG and have never been disappointed. From family lunch, birthdays, Xmas Dinner with our team or even a quick bite at the bar - the WAG is your choice. Friendly staff and a beautiful environment compliment the view out the wall of windows looking at the ocean outside. We used to live a few blocks away and visited quite often and now with a 40 minute drive, it is still our choice when we want to celebrate something special.
We went here for Valentines day. Service is quite good. Food was good. Prices are a little high. I like that it has an oceanside view.
Meal of Seafood penne was great. Starter soup of potato leek seemed a little thick but flavour was good.
Service was friendly and attentive. Seemed a little quiet but that might just be what its like for a mid week lunch hour.
The pecan encrusted salmon was to die for as per usual ! My husband really enjoyed the Cajun cod . Excellent meal , excellent service
Amazing food and amazing service as always :)
Love coming here for our Anniversary and other special occasions
