  • "From Manitoba mushrooms to melt-in-your-mouth Alberta beef, every bite was a delight. However it was the waitstaff that made the meal sing. Beautiful wine recommendations, attentive smiles and thoughtful extras provided by those who served and schooled us made our amazing food a tremendous event...we will always remember our 10th @ 529!!"

  • "Had a great lunch at a reasonable price. Lots to choose from on lunch menu and prices are very comparable with other less lovely restaurants. You can order more expensively but our choices were so affordable and delicious plus the service was impeccable. Can't wait to go again."

  • "We went for lunch. food was good. service was good. We sat by the wall, which could use a good leaning. lots of spatter on the walls. the coats and pants the waiters wear are bleached out and one size does not fit all. You have this thin waiter serving you in an oversized jacket that looks more yellow than white. Came of as fake fancy."

  • "This is a classic steak house which prides itself serving only Canada Grade A beef. What I liked was the offering of a 6 oz filet as many steak houses offer way too much steak for one person to consume. The 6oz tenderloin was exceptional, cooked perfectly with a nice wild mushroom side dish. Good selection of wine. It is expensive as each item is individually priced, so for a special occasion for those meat lovers a good place to go in Winnipeg. Service was very good as well."

  • "We've chosen 529 for out wedding anniversary place to go. This was our fourth visit and it was perfect, as always. It's pricy, but worth it, so as long as we can afford it, we plan to keep going! If you get a chance - go!!!"

  • "We just decided to go out for a quiet supper and by booking at five PM, our expectations were well satisfied. The waiter was outstanding with close attention and pleasant attention to our needs. The meal was outstanding and my decision to try veal was a good experience indeed. This followed great appetizers and the waiter was there when we needed him. It was indeed nice to have the extra attention by our booking early as when we were leaving the restaurant got increasingly busy. My partners Margarita was very well done as well and my diet coke was superb. There was no need for desert as we were well satiated by the time we finished our appetizers and salad and main course. All in all, a pleasant dinning experience."

  • "While the dinner was exquisite, my husband and i were seated next to a window with a floor vent right beside us. It was a very warm, summer evening and i was wearing a dress with sandals. The air blowing out of the vent was extremely cold. I asked the waiter if he could possibly cover up the vent, which he did! With a folded table cloth. It didn't seem to help much. I had to use my shawl to cover my legs which also didn't help a great deal. The meal was difficult to enjoy because of the cold air. My legs were frozen and aching by the end of dinner. Please consider those of us who are not well endowed with insulation. A fleece blanket would have been lovely!"

  • "We came for a Birthday Lunch. It was amazing lovely atmosphere, friendly waiters and interesting menu with a lot of choices. We both had the onion soup which was delicious. I had the ruben sandwich absolute the best ever, She had the hamburger it was so good she had to force herself not to eat it all so she could take a "bite" home for her husband. Great place to come for any meal."

  • "My friends and I went for a business celebration. This was not our first visit, and it will not be our last. We enjoyed the gamut: appetizers, wine, steaks, and dessert . As usual, the food was delicious and our waiter was professional and helpful. The à la carte options were lovely. We particularly enjoyed the ribs and the tuna tartare. Other than a small glitch when the wrong ice cream was delivered, we all really enjoyed the meal. This is a place where we will go again. True, it is not inexpensive to eat there, but you are paying for quality. They are also open for lunch, and that is a decent option as the pricing is a little easier on the pocketbook."

  • "529 is always a favorite of mine for patio dining. Gorgeous greenery, flowers and a lovely river view. Love the xxl umbrella. The home made Corned Beef on the Reuben melts in your mouth and if you're ordering the sweet potato fries, you'll have enough to share with a table of four!"

  • "It was my friends 60th birthday and she wanted to celebrate very quietly. The restaurant is of course beautiful with the historic décor. We were greeted by a very friendly lady and taken to our table. Which was a quiet corner table, just what I had asked for. The flowers that I had ordered for the table, were right there. Our Server was top notch. Friendly. Informative. Attentive. Food of course was perfection. The chef at this restaurant is top notch. Everything that came out was wonderful. Flavorful. Beautifully prepared. Dessert was delectable. The evening was total perfection. I Thank 529 for making this night a night to remember for my friend!!!!"

  • "We went there recently for lunch. The service was attentive and our meal was very tasty. The portion size for the amount charged is a little small however and would not recommend this restaurant to anyone on a budget as it is very pricy, my lunch for 2 people without wine or alcoholic beverages was just under $100! nothing fancy was ordered per se either. In all it is nice if you are going for a business lunch or a special dinner for 2. It would be very expensive to host a large family for dinner there."

  • "Both waiter/waitress did not identify the night's "specials". My tenderloin/crab was ok....the steak not cooked properly -asked for medium-rare+, steak was cooked medium+. My wife's prime rib was awesome."

  • "It was my first visit at this restaurant. I liked the atmosphere, the food was amazing. I was disappointed though because even though I mentioned on my reservations that it's our wedding anniversary, there was no acknowledgement of it all. I was hoping that maybe the table would look a bit different, or staff will acknowledge it or something of that sort. But was absolutely nothing! In overall, the food didn't disappoint us!!!"

  • "This trip to 529 was the best yet. The food was great as always, amazing service and I followed up our meal by asking my girlfriend to be my wife. The others in the room clapped and said congratulations as the waiter appeared with 2 glasses of champaign. Great experience."

  • "I booked a resevation there on July 1. Glad it was opened on holiday. The service was ok. Steaks was the best so far . But they put us on a small room filled with two another stranger's tables. It made the atmostphere very uncomfortable and everyone seems to tried to keeps it down because we were too close to each other. Didnt like the seats"

  • "While our dining experience was good, and the food was excellent, one of the parties at our table was a little taken aback on two areas of cleanliness. Our waiter, while very knowledgeable and friendly, was wearing a uniform that really could have used laundering. Also, when the condiments were brought for the baked potato (sour cream/bacon/chives) it was quite noticeable that the serving dish was not very clean and perhaps could have been wiped off prior to bringing it to the table. These are small things - but important ones."

  • "Our most favorite thing to do - dining with our children - was extra special this past Sunday. We were privileged to enjoy the 529 experience - the building, the perfectly prepared soups, the tender and tasty beef, and the excellent choices in side dishes. An unforgettable dining experience that made our family dinner one to talk about in future conversations."

  • "Have never had a bad experience at this restaurant until this one. One appetizer was not as generous as it usually is. Steaks left in hallway cooling off while waiter chit chatted and poured wine at another table Meat was not trimmed properly. Mashed sweet potatoes were cold and when they returned after pointing this out they were too hot and arrived after we ate most of our meal. No discount given on them. I hope this experience this was just an anomaly."

  • "9th time my wife and I have been at 529, with past experiences being memorable. This time not so much. We had a first time couple with us this time too, so they didn't really know that this was sub par for 529. The 3 appetizers were the best part of our meals. Mini Prime Rib stuffed Yorkshires were awesome, as was the Carpachio and Long Dry Ribs. My 22 oz Peppercorn Ribsteak was over cooked, riddled with grissle and all you could taste was peppercorn. Wife had filet & prawns and only her prawns were note worthy. The other couple liked their filet & lobster tail and the Veal Chop, but they are used to eating at Pony Corral, so they should have been impressed. The Spanish Red Wine chosen for us was INCREDIBLE. Our Server was excellent"

  • "It is what it is. Really good, top quality steak, prepared exactly as you like it. But this is nothing more than a backyard chef can do with a good barbecue and a trip to a gourmet grocery store. The decor is charming — a 102-year-old mansion built for one of Winnipeg's early elite. The service is attentive (as it should be, given what even just a 15 per cent tip will add up to). But the meal will not inspire you. It will not transport you — other than the rush you get when you realize you just paid $10 for a baked potato. Granted, it is a large baked potato. All the way from Idaho. But still... IMHO, you go there to be seen going there, or to boast about going there. You don't go there for the food."

  • "I found529 Wellington an em joyful dining experience. The prices were great especially comparing it to other chains who do not have the ambience or class of this restaurant. We were habing a firls lunch on the patio and had plenty of time to talk and enjoy and were never rushed out. The wait had a somewhat superior attitude however did a very good job. The waiter whom we didn't have was fun, open and had a friendly attitude as we asked him a few questions. An over all very nice experience."

  • "This allegedly high-end resto let us down. Our party of three ordered our beef medium rare. The two New York strips came that way. The prime rib was rare. The waiter promptly wisked it away, returning after a wait with the same piece of meat and garnishes - the meat having been browned on the flattop. Only upon further complaint did the waiter offer to bring a properly cooked portion, which ought to have been the first response. Given the prices charged, I cannot recommend 529. I wish it were otherwise."

  • "Everything was wonderful about the dinner, except I had the air conditioner blowing right on me and another member at out table. We did ask for it to be turned down. They did at one point do this but 30 min. later it was turned on again. this would definitely be something I would mention when making my reservation next time … I would ask not to be seated next to a vent."

  • "Two of us went for lunch after receiving a gift card. This is a very nice place. By a little after noon the place was full. I had the steak sandwich with onion rings, which was very good. Steak was done to perfection. One small negative to the steak was that it was a bit too salty for me as I use little to no salt with my meals. Onion soup with a bit of port was excellent. My wife had the reuben sandwich with salad and it was also excellent. For dessert we had the bread pudding and chocolate cheesecake. Both were very tasty. Service was attentive and professional. It was a little noisy at times. This is a high end restaurant so expect to pay a premium dollar but for a special occasion or treat it is well worth it."

  • "First time going here with my spouse; the food, service and presentation was top notch, service staff were great...but they seated us next to 2 large, noisy groups which made the experience rather unenjoyable. The tables are too close together with very little privacy!"
