The place is absolutely stunning inside with great atmosphere. We visit once or twice a year to Montreal and are back this weekend with friends and will look to other options. I can only comment on our server who was rude and seemed uninterested till it was time to pay the bill. I had the seafood mare which for the... More

Good Italian restaurant with lots of space in a famous street in Montréal. The service was very nice. Big quantities of food and bread served with a good pesto to dip it in. I would definitely go back soon.

Four of us dined here on Friday Feb 3 and had a wonderful meal and time. I had orange roughy, and others had pizza and steak. The pizzas didn't arrive at the same time as the other entrees, about 2 minutes later, but we weren't bothered by that. After we had finished our mains, we were all offered either a... More

Had dinner at Weinstein & Gavino's and pasta was a good was it was 5 years ago. The Gnocchi Ragu Di Carne was cooked very well. Also had the Lobster Mac & Cheese which was also very good. The portions are generous.

We were on a time line between games at the World Juniors and wandered up from the Bell centre. We asked if they could serve us within the hour. Atmosphere is true Italian, smells delicious when you enter, looks like a place where you would need to linger. Service was fast. Our waiter was attentive, funny and took good pictures.... More

I invited family and friends to this Italian restaurant. We had dinner on the occasion of my wife's birthday. It is a bug three stories restaurant with a nice atmosphere and succulant food. The service is exceptional. I recommend it to those looking for Italian restos. Thank you Weinstein and Gavino's

We visited this place based on TA recommendations!! My pasta dish was undercooked - pasta was chewy!! Sauce as OK -- stingy with the cheese!! Bread was cold and mediocre!! Martini was not made to order!! Service was ok!! With so many excellent places in Montreal -- this one will not be on ou list!!

It honestly sucks. This is a fine example of trashy people serving you bad drinks. Shout out to the bartender who threw a fit when we ordered a certain drink. She also discussed wanting to do cocaine right in front of us. Classy.

Hi Christopher H, We cannot begin to express our deep dismay with your experience at our restaurant. We believe that the bulk of our reviews reflect the true spirit of what we do and what we offer at W&G. Unfortunately, sometimes things don't go the way we want them to.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
