Our first visit to this restaurant.
Although it was noisy with a big group having their Xmas party, we enjoyed our experience.
Delicious food and awesome service.
We will definitely go back.

Great Restaurant for having small parties and close to the water front where you can walk. Food was excellent and service good. Sometimes seating can be a problem with being so close to other people otherwise a great place to eat

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.

Excellent night, we had a reservation so getting seated was easy and had immediate service while we waited for the rest of our party. Service was non rushed and friendly, once orders placed there was appropriate time between appetizers and main course, again ..non rushed service. Food was great, portion sizes just right.
We will be back !

Always great, good food well presented and fair portions .
Great taste. Good service and reasonable prices.
Ambiance could be better, the place requires some TLC, paint the stairs, touch up the decor. Ie. spend a little money on the place. You have to put some money back into the place to remain current.
The restaurant requires a good cleaning, particularly the lobby entrance. Not very welcoming.

I paid with 2 / 50$ gift cards a bill wich was 87$ but the waitress kept the remaining 13$ on the gift card without asking me if I would like to keep the card with the remaining balance . Hmmm don't know what to say to this . Food absolut great in taste and value and quality

My 2 teenage daughters and I went for dinner. The youngest is not a fan of seafood but our favourite server Eric assured her he would suggest a meal for her that the Chef could create. She was delighted and not disappointed. ( She ate the majority of it and ate the rest the next day; which she rarely does).The eldest enjoyed her favourite meal and I got to enjoy all the greatness that the WAG has to offer.
Highly recommend!!!!

Nothing bad to say. Food was delicious. Steelhead was cooked to perfection and just right potion size. My daughter ordered seafood hotspot and loved it. Martini was excellent just a little slow from the bar but forgiven due to rest of service. Always good food

This is a go-to for us when we want a good meal. We were celebrating my wife's birthday but her favourite ahi tuna wa slightly over cooked and the portion was very small compared to many previous visits. My ribs were excellent! Service was good and friendly! We planned to be there before sunset and it was TOTALLY worth it! Great view!

Great food as usual!
However the server, knowing it was my wife's birthday brought us a piece of cake with a sparkler. Very nice of her, yes. But we did not get to choose the cake nor did we order it and then we found she had charged for it when the bill came.
A little cheesy to give someone a birthday present and then ask them to pay for it.

Haven't eaten here for years. I wasn't even sure the WAG was still there. But we had a coupon and thought we would give it a try. We got a same day reservation for dinner for 4 of us. Our service was good and the food was very good. We enjoyed ourselves and would recommend the WAG to others looking for a nice place with good food and service.
