Diner Reviews
  • "The food was average. My husband had the pork chop and it was overcooked and dry. I had the brisket which as well was dry and the potato salad that was to accompany the dish was hardly visible. The calamari starter was very average which was a surprise. I thought perhaps the calamari would be given a bit of a different presentation or a less generic preparation. This is second and last time we will dine here. Far too many other choices out there."

  • "We love this restaurant and since we live just two blocks away go there frequently and often bring guests. Always have a good experience."

  • "The server we had was perfect. ...the food was beyond underwhelming. Steamed and flopped on a plate veggies and lackluster flavors for the proteins. On paper the menu items sound tasty and we had hoped for the best. Won't be back."

  • "Everything that we had was good; the beef tartare was exceptional with capers, pickles and smoked egg yolk. I also had the trout served whole which was succulent. Absinthe and bourbon cocktail has kick."

  • "We had a fantastic dinner for two on a Friday night. I had the pork belly feature and the mussels. Both spectacular. My partner had the half chicken dinner and said it was likely the best chicken she's ever had at a restaurant. The service was impeccable. Not overbearing but always there when you needed something. Staff was also knowledgeable regarding the menu which we did have questions about. It was hard to choose. We were full after our entrees and declined dessert but because our waiter was aware of the special occasion he brought us a creme brûlée to share...on the house. It was a great evening. Above and beyond what I expected."

  • "Our family had an absolutely awesome dinner. The food and the service were fantastic. Everything is made from scratch on site and the food tasted great. The menu was unique for us .... (we are from a smaller community) and the staff was very friendly and helpful, explaining exactly how things on it were made and the different tastes .... it was truly a dining experience for us and we will be back for sure."

  • "Best when sticking to the classic, simple fare from which they draw their name. Excellent service, and a better than average bar stock/wine cellar."

  • "This is one of my favourite places to eat. The food is always delicious, the servers are friendly and helpful. I appreciate the way the menu changes (but not too often!) so that you have a chance to try each of your choices on return visits."

  • "Professional and genuinely polite servers. The PEI oysters were fine however the charcuterie had cheap meat and somewhat disgusting assortment of meat (when asked what was served for the charcuterie was advised whatever the chef has decided and what is available) and the calamari was nothing special as arrived cold and the dipping sauce had no flavour. Such a shame as the service was excellent but I won't return."

  • "The server was amazing. The food was amazing. The wine was amazing. Even the bathroom was a pleasant experience! Would highly recommend this place to anyone - local or visiting! The flavors on the menu change quite regularly, but we had a variety (6) of appetizers as our entire meal and each one of them was delicious! Make sure you try the Charcuterie Plate!"

  • "Great food and wine list, I enjoyed the Mahi Mahi. I would rate 4.5 if I could on food and ambience, but it didn't allow the option to give half stars. There was a reggae festival in the park across the street, so it was lively and not distracting to our visit at the table, which it was surprised about (in a good way)."

  • "This was our first time to Winnipeg and we were staying downtown. The restaurant was conventiently located to the hotel. Food was of exceptional quality, with local ingredients. Loved sitting outside watching people come and go. It was a Sunday evening and relatively quiet. Would definitely eat here again."

  • "We've been to this restaurant a few times in the past and have really enjoyed ourselves. At this visit there were four of us for dinner. Two of us had meals that were not up to par. The fish was very greasy, the Berkshire pork was at least, and I'm not exaggerating here, 70% fat. My very large piece of meat ended up being tiny after all the fat was cut off."

  • "Charming, inviting, lovely … we will return. We were well served and enjoyed the food. The changing menus for each month were an invitation to come back"

  • "Wednesday nights at the Peasant Cookery offers oysters for $1 each. These are mouth watering, delicious and not to be missed. Fresh warm bread is always a great way to start the meal. The mussels & french fries are also another favourite. The ambiance is fun & relaxing. Do make a reservation though or you might miss out."

  • "The food was amazing, as expected (my friend and I both had the aged cheddar gnocchi, it was amazing). The best part though, was after knocking over my drink onto my plate of food, the waiters were right on top of it, whisked away the mess and brought me a new plate, no problem. I felt like a dummy, but they were so gracious about everything. Thanks, guys!"

  • "Our 1st visit before theatre and were pleasantly impressed. Asked ourselves why we hadn't tried this place before was because we thought it was too far a walk but much closer than what it looks like on a map. The ambience was lively with a full house. The tourtiere was a little different than expected but in a good way with generous portions. The service was good. An overall positive experience and will return."

  • "We have been to this restaurant 4 times now and always for lunch. We have never been disappointed. My husbands steak was perfect. I love the butter lettuce salad. I must say that this time I had the pickerel and it was a bit dry and chewy. Although flavour was great. Our waitress was busy with a couple of big lunch tables so we didn't get the service attention we usually get. We would go back again."

  • "My husband and I wanted to choose a special place with amazing food that had no chance of disappointing us on our special occasion. Boy, did we pick the right place! We've been to Peasant Cookery about half a dozen times before and have always been impressed with the food quality and service. We really like the way the wine list is laid out, as in: $35 bottles, $45 bottles and so on. It lets you look for the style and qualities you like in a wine without fear of huge sticker shock when you find the price. Our server, Scott, was absolutely spot on for service, my steak was perfect, my hubby's berkshire pork was OUT OF THIS WORLD amazing, as was the warm chickpea salad with my meal. I highly recommend this restaurant ! We'll be back!"

  • "I like the idea of local food. However, my pickeral BLT was cold, the pieces of pickeral tiny, and I had ordered fries as my side, but received greens. The Bacon was hardly there as well. The highlight was being able to sit outside on a beautiful summer day. My niece who is a waitress was surprised that our server did not write our orders down. Maybe she should have. I have a dinner reservation coming up and am a little skittish about it. Hope is is better than our lunch experience."

  • "My husband and I finally got to go out for a much needed mommy and daddy date and we were definitely not disappointed. Our server was great, very friendly and knowledgable. She is probably the only server who actually understood my preference for wine. I usually get someone who, after i tell them what i like, blindly recomends a wine that in the end I do not like at all. The food was amazing. Simple, clean and very flavourful. Their prices were very reasonable. I will for sure come back and recommend this restaurant to everyone who will listen. :)"

  • "In Winnipeg for a business trip and chose Peasant Cookery based on the reviews from Open Table. Had a delightful meal starting with a charcuterie platter. A number of different types of sausages and meats made in house. My colleague chose the tourtière while I had a " Flintstone" size pork chop. Both dishes were well prepared and presented. Finished the meal off with some very good sugar pie. Of particular note was the excellent service provided by our server who was knowledgeable about the food as well as the beer and wine list. "
