We had a lovely time. Very courteous and friendly service. Very tasty food! Very nice surprise when a piece of cake was brought over for my Mom's 75th birthday. We found the sound in the area where we were sitting quite loud though - music and voices of others echoed - even though there were only four groups of people in the area.

Brought my mom for her birthday
Brought my mom for her birthday brunch. Great experience, staff, and food. The level of the harp playing was excellent for my mom who hates all music of all kinds. She thinks music is nothing but "noise"!
I do not live in Winnipeg so it was also any occasion the chat and visit, and even though we were there three hours, we never felt rushed and the service continued be excellent until we left.

Mothers Day Dinner Buffet
The mothers' day dinner buffet was exceptional! A well chosen and extensive variety of course options were perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. The desserts included a lovely selection of cakes and dainties topped with a chocolate fountain and fresh cut fruit. The service was excellent as usual. Our entire party was most impressed.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Special occasion for us to be out. Waiter Chris was exceptional. Salmon chowder was very tasty. We both had the special -Ahi Tuna. It could only be described as amazing. Will be back again.

Very nice for Romantic night
This place is gorgeous! Great service and very good meal. My wife had the Chicken Afredo pasta and I had the Prime Rib. Both plates were great! A little overpriced though if you compare with other fine dining restaurants in WInnipeg. But it was definitely worth the experience.
5/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent dining experience
We really enjoyed our dining experience, food, ambience, service, and overall. We will return.

The Gates is one of the best
The Gates is one of the best restaurants in Winnipeg. The bison entrée was a big hit for three
of our guests. They all raved about it. The prime rib was also delicious. I highly recommend this
restaurant if you are willing to spend a bit of money to have a first class meal.
6/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and the service was superb! Although the Gates remains somewhat more expensive, the quality, preparation and presentation of the food is worth the price! The servers (from the young man in charge of ensuring the water glasses remain full) to the maitre de, do a wonderful job of presenting the best of the Gates.
A gem in the west end of the city, not too far off the perimeter to be a concern for those travelling from other areas of the city!
Didn't have room for dessert, but that menu also looked/sounded spectacular!

Great food and location.
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at the Gates. We both had the chef's special the bison dinner. It was amazing. Very tender and flavourful. Our waiter recommended the key lime pie for dessert and she was spot on, it was outstanding. The staff was friendly, great atmosphere. We would definitely go back.

there warm atmosphere at the gates is outstanding its very romantic and the sun rooms make the restaurant shine the restaurant is very much worth a trip, and the food is outstanding and very tasteful., and the grounds of the restaurant is very much like stepping back into nature with the tree and horses that are on the grounds.

Special Family Brunch
When we have our whole family together - Sunday brunch at the Gates has become a tradition

Gates on Roblin
Food was delicious. Steak was cooked proper! Great service! Friendly staff!
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
The chateau briande was fantastic and so was the service. However the garlic whipped potatoes were slightly cold and some of the vegetables.
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
I wanted the lamb but changed
I wanted the lamb but changed my mind once told about night's special blacken steak with large prawns. The timing of drinks and food was amazing. Desserts were large and fresh. We were in and out in 1 1/2 hours. Service best in town.
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
The noise level was very high but that's not your fault Group in private room very loud. The service was extremely good and our waitress very attentive. Booked over Internet and then realized that there was no way my elderly Mother could possibly do the stairs and phoned to request main level. Woman who answered phone was lovely and made adjustment for us.
only complaint is that our daughter and my mother ordered the special (steak and prawns) and my Mother's steak was much larger than my daughter's. All in all a very nice experience and we were very pleased with the entire experience. Oh yes and my 92 year old Mother was surprised that the steak didn't have garlic on it. Maybe you should offer it as a choice (no offence Chef)

Top Notch Dining
Everything was beyond expectation. This was my first visit and we will definately be back. The service was fantastic, the food phenominal and the verandah was a lovely place to take in a sunny summer evening. Our beef was prepared perfectly as ordered. Our server was great and had the balance of knowing when to be there, but not too often. I was presented with a dessert complete with sparkler for my birthday and my daughter was offered carrots to feed the horses after we had concluded our dinner. The price point might be high for some, but you get what you pay for & The Gates is well worth the money! What a fantastic dining experience - I couldn't have asked for anything more.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great restaurant but the chairs are very uncomfortable.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love lamb
Excellent experience, we hadn't been back since we got married there 14 years ago and will now try to make it there on a more regular basis and also when we have out if town guests.

We've come to this restaurant for years. We've gone other places in-between, but always seem to come back here. We love the atmosphere, the food and we've always had great service. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Didn't like the table, as it was small and butted up against the wall. My husband is a big guy and he found it too small. A large group was beside us and they did get very loud. I was hard to talk or hear a times. Otherwise everything else was fine.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful Night. Food was well prepared and presented. Dining Room chairs were somewhat uncomfortable. Ambience was great.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Waitress was great ( friendly, made excellent recommendations). There were four of us and we each had a different entree. In order of best to very good was the lamb (best in Winnipeg), the special of chicken with a great wild rice pilaf, the prime rib, and the Arctic char. We shared an appetizer of escargot on flat bread which was fabulous. Wine was reasonable price. Went on a Tuesday night so it was nice and quiet. Definitely recommend to others.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
My first dining experience at the Gates happened as a result of a dear family friend throwing a Host-less Brunch to honour my upcoming wedding. The event was tremendously memorable, and all guests were so pleased with the food and service. As a gift, my husband and I received gift certificates for the Gates, and we were able to enjoy a lovely evening of dining with two good friends. Again, the service was tremendous, and the food was good. I would eagerly suggest The Gates to anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion, or evening out. Thank You Staff and Management at the Gates!

i have been to the gates 3 times.

We love 'The Gates'. Food
We love 'The Gates'. Food is always delicious and the service is good. We find the price very reasonable for an upscale restaurant. The setting is second to none and as we live on the west side of Winnipeg, we find it a very convenient place to celebrate most any occasion!

The Gates is a bright spot
The Gates is a bright spot in Winnipeg, in a country setting with horses in the paddock and beautifully landscaped grounds along the Assiniboine River sits a stately mansion in white. Inviting, you are intrigued by the many beautiful and unique dining rooms, my favorite is the all glass atrium. The food, spectacular - We had the dry ribs and Ceasar salad, I had the tenderloin with rock lobster and baby potatoes, my partner had the prime rib with the garlic mashed potatoes and a side of delicious prawns in tomato sauce. I had the lemon tart for desert. Wonderful food, wonderful venue - we will return.

Our evening at the gates
We were with a group with a range from 6 to 70! Everyone enjoyed their elegant meal. I would like to see two healthy options on the kids menu. The steak and roast beef were done perfectly. The salmon and pickerel were delicious. The setting was gorgeous with the fall colors and the children loved that the horses came over to check us out after the meal.

9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Expensive but nice
Service was good, food was great. We started with the smoked brie which was amazing, then I had the rib steak with the bone marrow reduction, the sauce was a little salty but overall it was very good. My girlfriend had the atlantic salmon, which she loved. The presentation on all dishes was very nice. To finish it off my girlfriend had the chocolate marquis which she loved (I was too full for desert by the end).

Good business dinner location
The many separate and side rooms allow your group to have a meal without fighting the typical ever-increasing noise levels of other locations. Good lighting so you can see your dining partners and food!
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
A delightfully pleasing and memorable evening was had by all in our party of 4 at the Gates. From driving up the stately entrance, graced by two sleek stallions grazing in the corral, to passing a beautiful bronze statue, to entering an elegantly restored ranch home, the visual senses are stimulated and expectations are tingling. We loved it all, the gorgeous setting, the romantic ambience, the succilent prime rib, the tender turkey, the rich lamb, the deccadent desserts, the impeccable service! We left with all of our expectations more than satisfied and with wishes to come again very soon.

Anniversary at the Gates
Tuesday evening the restaurant was pretty quiet so we had a very nice dinner. The food and service was excellent and although the meal was a little pricey we will certainly go again and recommend to friends for any special occasion. We ate in a small glassed in room so the fall colours and sunset were also enjoyed.

Tuesday after Thanksgiving
It happened that my husband's birthday was right after Thanksgiving. We always go out for dinner, but have never had (almost, except for another couple) the restaurant to ourselves! It was weird...and wonderful!
We've always had good food and service at the Gates...but on such a slow night we were treated like royalty!
I have to applaud their service that night. With so few guests, it might have been tempting to take a few shortcuts. The opposite happened.

girlfiiends birthday lunch
Had a delicious lunch with 2 girlfriends celebrating their birthdays and what a wonderful surprise to have 2 decorated plates with yummy chocolate cheesecake and sizzlers burning for their birthday cake!
Lisa was so helpful, friendly and patient with all 3 of us having trouble using the credit card machine.
I will be back with more girlfriends for lunch as it is the perfect place to have a visit. It had been a few years since I was last there but will now be back more often.

We were married five years ago in the Sunroom at The Gates on Roblin and everything was excellent then. We decided to return there to celebrate our special anniversary. I made the reservation on line so was pleasantly surprised, when we got there, to be seated in the Sunroom for our dinner. Nothing has changed as far as the food, service and ambience. Everything was excellent from the starters, to the main course, to the delicious dessert! Plus it was so nice to sit there reminiscing about our special day. A great way to spend our 5th anniversary!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delightful in every way
Away from the bustle and busyness of urban jumble this serene gem offers delicious food served by enthusiastic and knowledgable staff.
Absolutely the best deal in town for lunch in any price level. Genuine respect for guests with food allergies. Salmon is never served dry, house salad is a visual treat and lightly dressed in fragrant house secret. Always consider the specials. You like pleasant surprises? This is the place.
Ps if you are planning a wedding, why would you go anywhere else? They pull out all the stops so guests can just enjoy....

Great dining at the Gates
We took our parents to the Gates for Sunday Brunch and it was spectacular. There was quite the selection for food and we loved the ambiance. It was one of the best restaurants we have ever been to and we will definitely recommend The Gates to our family and friends.
