“Great food good service poor cleanliness”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Dinner was great, made reservations on open table and everything was as to be expected. ok table but seemed like the staff might have used the downstairs by the deck door to smoke so the occasional waft if cigarette smoke was coming in. The crab cakes were ok pretty small but ok flavor. my wife had the pasta with artichoke and pesto and chicken, good flavor but a little overkill on the artichoke. I had the stuffed glazed chicken that was very flavorful. as i said the service was good our waiter did a great job food was hot and well cooked.
the problem we had was that the cutlery, dishes lasses and even the menus all had food bits on them. we pointed the menus out to the waiter but it didn't seem to faze him maybe it was normal
would try it again

“Fun & Festive”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Went there with a group of girls and had a great night out. The WAG has a wonderful view of East Beach and inside is fun & upbeat and noisy (in a good way). Our waiter was super and made all the right recommendations. There was live music when were there so made for an all around great experience!

“GREAT FOOD!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

This place reallly does have great food. Service is usually good, however when busy can be a very very cramped atmosphere, and takes away from the cozy lounge type atmosphere. Prices are fair to high, definately a destination restaurant, not a daily dinner stop.

“WAG!”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

The restaurant is on the second floor. Bar, dining area, and "outside dining". Liked the "outside dining" the best. This restaurant overlooks the water; which is a beautiful view. The mussel appetizer was ok...the broth was tasteless - wouldn't order again. The chicken appetizer was fantastic - peanut and curry sauce. The two salads, prawn and salmon were outrageously wonderful. Large enough to share with two people. One or both of these salads are a must. The white wine was served warm...so I placed ice in it. They need to rearrange their wine service to ensure the white wine is cold. Otherwise, the service was great.

“A Special Event”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Excellent food in a heritage house setting overlooking Semiahmoo Bay. I always look forward to getting together with friends I used to work with to enjoy a special meal and evening.
