Lobby on York
Best in the city!!The service was great. Our server was excellent and very knowledgeable. My wife and I were very impressed with the service and will be returning every time we get a chance to go out. We have already recommended your restaurant to many couples. We had the crab cakes, rack of lamb and the portabello rib steak. This is what we almost always order when going out. We have been to all the nice steak places in the city, and nothing compares. Service and food beyond any others in Winnipeg.
Thank you very much for the excellent evening

The only downside is that we have not heard of your restaurant until now. You need to do some advertising.12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways assured of a greatAlways assured of a great meal and wonderful service9/3/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything we ordered wasEverything we ordered was excellent. We had the beet salad to start, which was light and delightful. We then had the Tuna Tartare which was the best appetizer my partner nad I had ever tasted. We then ordered the 10 ounce Peppercorn New York Striploin with Lobster and with Prawns. We asked that the Brocollini appetizer come with our meal. Everything was cooked perfectly. For dessert we had the Chocolate torte with caramel gelato. The waitress was on par and the bartender made our drinks perfectly. The price of our wine at $15.00 a glass was slightly high, but we were very aware of the prices of the beverages. All in all we had a great experience at Lobby on York and would return for another special occasion.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Food - Hands DownMy husband and I were invited to this restaurant by a colleague during a recent trip to Winnipeg. We went on a Monday night and loved everything so much we decided to return on our own on Friday. We were not disappointed! The food is over the top amazing - best food we've ever eaten at a restaurant. Karl served us both nights and really knows his stuff - you can trust his recommendations. Favorite dish is between the mac & cheese and the Korean BBQ short ribs. Unlikely that I'll be in Winnipeg again in the near future, but the Lobby on York is a reason to go!!! If I'm anywhere near there again, I'll definitely be stopping in to try some other menu items!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Food and Service!My Spouse and I have been celebrating our Anniversary at the Lobby on York every year and we've always received the best service possible. The food is extraordinary and I can definitely say the same for everyone that works there. Also the filet mignon is to die for, I order it every year and its always made to perfection. For those who still haven't been to the Lobby on York I strongly recommend you all to try it at least once, trust me you wont be disappointed.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely phenomenalThis type of location is so rare in Winnipeg. The modern decor makes it a standout in the city. Its great menu is only complimented by the absolutely terrific food. We had Korean BBQ ribs to start, the flavor is unmatchable. We then had the Cambazola steak and the gnocchi for the main course. Never had food this good at a restaurant in Winnipeg. You have to try this place!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner for twoRelaxed atmosphere. Server was knowledgeable and friendly. Tuna Tartar was excellent. We definitely will return.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious but priceyMy wife and I go for diner with another couple once every couple of months. We chose Lobby on York for the simple reason that I was able to get reservation within two days of our diner date. While I was getting ready for our evening, my wife began reading from the online menu and we were reluctant about the costs. We only do this now and then and figured oh well. The food was excellent to say the least. Had to be one of my top steak diners in Winnipeg so far. The server was quite entertaining and engaging. That being said, a half bottle of wine, two entrees, soup and an appetizer came to almost $160 with tip. Nice atmosphere, but quite noisy when all tables are seated. You had to raise your voice quite a bit just to carry on a conversation.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMoutstanding food & serviceoutstanding food & service - 4 of 4 rated dining experience as excellent5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining Experience!Food was amazing but a little spendy. For a special occasion it is perfect. I also pre-ordered flowers to our table, being from out of town I was hoping this would work out. To my surprise they were at the table with card on arrival. Great experiance, amazing food, and Great service! Well worth the price.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!My family and I are foodies. Lobby on York satisfies our expectations of a fine dining establishment. We had several dishes which were all great, but some were really outstanding:
1. Bone-in Rib Steak - cooked rare as requested, large cut, flavorful, tender. Steak lovers will not be disappointed.
2. Lingcod - was cooked al dente but remained moist; vinaigrette really gave it a nice kick but wasn't overpowering.
3. Yam Fries - light crisp on the outside and velvety smooth inside.
Service was attentive and helpful. All around great experience. Will definitely be back soon!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food ,great serviceThis was only our second time returning because of the fantastic food, which didn't disappoint after high expectations from our first visit. The menu is perfectly sized with various options for both starter and main, however the pulled Duck Quesadilla for a starter is amazing and would recommend you try it. And with different choices for main such as Steak or Fish dishes we chose Steak, which was a great choice both the Fillet Mignon and New York strip were perfectly cooked. Complements to the Chef and our server Karl who was both attentive with service and detail but knowledgeable about the menu. We would recommend this to everyone to try for yourselves.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA Fantastic EveningI took my mother and dad to the Lobby on York for Mother's Day, as they had never been and I have been there a lot. The service was great as always. We started with some appetizers; Pulled Duck Quesadilla and The Crab Cakes, which are two of my favourites. The mango chutney for the crab cakes is divine.
For dinner we all had different things. I had my usual signature steak the Fillet Mignon, while my dad had the New York Strip. My mother had the Pickerel. Everyone devoured their meals and my parents were raving about their first experience at the restaurant that is a little hard to find for people not in the know. That is not exactly a bad thing, as it gives people like me the chance to share this gem with others.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery dish a masterpieceWe ordered many of the appetizers, entrees, and desserts. They were all well made, great balance of tastes, and very pretty. The ingredients were fresh. Prices were reasonable for the high standard of cuisine and service.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous!My boyfriend and I had a fantastic time. At first, the servers seemed a bit stand-offish but by the end of the dinner the server was gracious, charismatic, and very kind. I thought we waiting maybe a couple minutes too long for drinks but it was a Friday night and the lounge was full. The drinks were made perfectly. The food came at the perfect times, waiting time wasn't too long for it. And when the food did arrive it was amazing. The half rack of lamb with the mint tamirand sauce is probably the best lamb I've ever tasted. The vegetables were cooked to perfection. The dessert, was divine! I definitely think people should take a night off and go to this restaurant. You leave feeling like you're floating on a cloud.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of winnipeg's hidden gemsExcellent food and service every time I visit, the one thing which I really enjoyed going to the Lobby for was the Pecan Butter Mashed Sweet Potatoes, unfortunately this item is no longer on the menu but there's still a lot of tasty dishes to choose from.. you will not be disappointed with choosing the Lobby for lunch or dinner.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
