It can be hard to get a reservation but for good reason. The staff were all AMAZING. Seriously my friend got up from the table and a staff member refolded her napkin while she was away. The wine list is above average for the area and the food, oh gosh the food. I consider myself to be a foodie. I'm... More

... with good food and service. The grilled halibut was cooked to perfection and unusually served with chickpeas. These were tasty but the serving was much too large and kind of marred the flavour of the halibut. The mushroom risotto was equally good and a good size portion. Service was friendly and efficient and although the restaurant was full, we... More

Excellent food, with large servings. Celebrated a friends engagement and the staff noted a congratulations on her dessert plate. Excellent alcohol options, but pricy in that department.

We have been frequenting this establishment since it opened 10 years ago. Although the decor is not fancy & the staff is casually dressed, you will not find better food in this city. All the staff are extremely personable & knowledgeable. You are warmly greeted on arrival & well taken care of once seated - but reserve early if you... More

Visited the Wellington Gastropub with co-workers. It was just simply an amazing meal. First and foremost, the service was incredible. I wish I caught our server's name. He was spectacular. He was prompt and personable. Our meals were wonderful. The beef short ribs were delicious. Our server took the time to describe the prep process for us. It sounded amazing... More

Enjoyed meeting up with friends at the W, and really enjoyed the evening. Lovely selection of beers/ales/ciders, and a small but good selection of food. The beef, scallops and Salmon were all lovely. Got the chance to talk to the owner who also used to live in London (UK) and has artsy photos put up across the restaurant. Really nice... More

Went planning to just have a few drinks at the bar but managed to get a table so we stayed for dinner. Scallops and fish soup were delicious as was the vegetarian fettuccine. As always the beer selection was well curated and offered excellent choices.

Absolutely delightful dinner. Was so good that we prolonged our pleasure a long time by drinking a second glass of white Sauvignon from Chile while very slow eating our dinner. Our waitperson was a knowledgeable Walker who was attentive and smiled. That was appreciated. A little birthday sorbet appeared at desert time even if nobody at our table was having... More
