Special Night Out
Have been to 529 quite a few times, but this time we took our adult children for their first 529 experience.
Everyone from the hostess, to the server was friendly, attentive, and went above and beyond to ensure an enjoyable night out. Food was delicious as always, and even my youngest son who can be quite picky was impressed. At is a decent hit on the pocket book, but every once in a while, a trip to 529 for a special occasion is well worth it.

My only complaint was that
My only complaint was that I found the steak sandwich steak was very fatty.

My wife has Celiac Disease but that was not an issue here! They were fantastic and it didn't matter what she ordered they were able to make it gluten free for her!

In the Province of Manitoba there is no finer dining experience than 529 Wellington. The food, the building, the staff are all beyond exceptional.
Ohhhhh, on a per person basis: 529 may cost 2 to 3 times what one might spend at a Sysco prepared food re-heaters, but to even mention such places at the same time as 529 Wellington is a crime.
Treat yourself. invest in delight. 529 Wellington.

Best restaurant in Winnipeg
529 Wellington never disappoints. We've dined here many times and have always found the food to be top notch, cooked to perfection.
All of the servers we've had are knowlegeable and professional. The food, service and overall experience continued to meet and exceed our expectations.

4 of us ate in the lounge
4 of us ate in the lounge and watched the hockey game. Only one other table of 2 came in later. Great night, wonderful service and food. Servers knowledge of specials and menu was impressive.

Our server was excellent, the steak was perfect, and everyone applauded the lobster that gave his life so valiantly. Thank you to Open Table for impressing my party.

Consistently great steakhouse
Went to 529 with our two young adult kids, to celebrate our birthdays. Very good food, attentive but not intrusive service. Atmosphere conducive to conversation. Overall consensus: whatever your main, try the au gratin potatoes. Lovely.

Great lunch experience on the terrace, which is a beautiful and peaceful location. Service was helpful and attentive. My wife had a Philly Cheese steak (which was a special that day), while I had the sirloin stir-fry with mashed potatoes. Both meals were excellent and generously portioned. Would definitely return and recommend..

This was our second visit to 529.
Our waiter was informative, friendly, has very good knowledge of the menu. Made suggestions for our meal.
The room was excellent , but overall I really do not think there is a bad spot to sit! Portions here at 529 are more than you would think! Excellent preparation by the Chef well done!
Prices are all within what you get for portions, service and ambiance.
Overall a great dining experience !! Would highly recommend for any occasion.
In today's fast paced world of dining out 529 exceeded our expectations in both food quality and service!

Best Steaks...Any where
529 stands up to and often exceeds any steaks prepared by industry giants such as Morton's or Ruth's. I am proud that we have a restaurant of this calibre in Winnipeg.

Ample parking. Greeted and seated promptly, even though we were a few minutes early for our 6:30 reservation. Service was attentive. The dinner specials were overwhelming but we opted for the tenderloin/lobster and the beef Wellington. The lobster was served with hollandaise and my husband would have preferred butter. There were a lot of flavours in the Wellington. The foie gras on top was too much. Beer battered onion rings were a special unexpected treat. We are in our 30s and by far the youngest diners. Largely a senior crowd. The crowd had been younger the last few times I was there, but that was on weekdays. The original dining room was cool. I wish I had worn pants instead of a dress. The room got louder as it filled up closer to 9pm.

We were their for our anniversary. Was her first time experience and my 3rd and it never disappoints. Great food and service!!

My 35th Wedding Anniversary
Great ambiance, great host very knowledgeable on a variety of subject above and beyond the food he described and served to perfection. Impeccable service paying attention to all the small details. The food was excellent and everyone at the table left very satisfied. Prices are reasonable considering the environment. A great place to go for a special occasion.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
amazing dining experience
The ambience was great. The service was exceptional with an very knowledgeable staff - from the servers to the sommelier. The food was outstanding that awakened new taste sensations.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Although we had a reservation
Although we had a reservation we were about 10 minutes early and were seated in the bar which was very noisy and would have preferred to sit in the restaurant. The service and waiter was excellent and the table we were seated at was very nice although next to a door that was being used continuously so not very private.
Later on there was a group that was very loud.
Overall enjoyed the experience.
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a pleasure to sit on the garden patio and enjoy lunch with a friend. The reuben was outstanding as usual. Service was a little off this time around.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was y partner's birthday. I thought that a small token ie cupcake or desert as a complementary item would have been have been appreciated. the fact that the restaurant did not serve rice as a substitute for potatoes was a surprise.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great price for the best lunch ever. The staff treat you like you are someone special. This is my favourite place for lunch.

Winnipeg's Secret Garden
The patio at 529 is truly a hidden gem and should not be missed during the summer season. The food at 529 is always top-notch but enjoying it while surrounded by all the beautiful flowering plants and greenery makes the experience soar!
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall a great experience
Had some issues with getting my reservation confirmed but once that was resolved the evening went very well. Our server (Ryan) was exceptional and the food was incredible!
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good but pricey
The food was great. It was served promptly and hot and was beautifully presented. The server was attentive and knew the menu and meats well. The décor is very authentic. The only fault was that the price was way too high. The price of the meat could easily have included the price of a vegetable and a potato (they could even add about $2 and include a reasonable amount of veggies). Overall, a very positive experience for a special occasion.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the Patio
529 Wellington has been a favorite since it opened, I always cherish the times we get to dine at this fine establishment. The prime rib was outstanding. We got a chance to sit on the patio and it was fabulous as always, it is so beautiful outside. My only issue was the staff did not say anything about our anniversary, which is odd because in past years they have always said something or provided a free glass of procesecco or dessert. I wrote this into the Open Table special comments box and I knew they must have read it because I asked to sit on the patio, which was accommodated.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hot Patio with Cold Servers
Very good lunch experience. Food was well prepared and flavours were great. Servers were professional; but are too sterile for a patio.
8/18/2013 5:00:00 PM
It was nice to go to a restaurant
It was nice to go to a restaurant and not feel rushed. The outdoor patio is amazing and the view spectacular. A wonderful laid back atmosphere. The only con if I had to give one would be that it would be nice to see a few more meat selections.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
would definetly go back. the food, drinks and service were wonderful.

Best Steaks in the City
If you are looking for a steak place to go to, well it is a must to hit 529 Wellington as the steaks are cook to perfection. The meat just melts in your mouth and so tender and juicy you can cut it with a butter knife. The staff is very helpful when picking out dishes and treat you like royality. An excellent place to dine!
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Its all about the steak
The best steak in Winnipeg. The best wine list I have seen anywhere. The service is second to none.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
The whole experence was excellent. The serving staff were knowlegable and attentive . The food was prepared to our liking and the presentation was superb. Will highly recommend to others and most definitely be back.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Absolutely superb as usual!
Absolutely superb as usual! Outstanding on all counts. Our most favorite place in Winnipeg!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was just the perfect place to go for a really yummy lunch that wasn't crazy expensive. Their dinner menu isn't really my thing since I don't like meat all that much but the lunch menu has a lot of options and the service is great!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
It Never Disappoints.
Upon arrival, we were promptly escorted to an excellent table location. The assigned waiter was timely and effecient in ascertaining our needs. The "flow" of service [i.e. wine, appetizers, entree and dessert were extraordinary]. The exceptional quality of food [and service] was consistent with other visits we have had at 529. Well done [again] !
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food, very knowledgeable
Excellent food, very knowledgeable and friendly staff, touch pricey.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the best resturant in Winnipeg, hands down!
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was our first time to 529, and we were very impressed. The service was courteous and professional, and the food was incredible. 529 is ideal for a romantic dinner with your significant other; we will definitely be back!
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM

10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Exceptional, as always
Took my family there for my two daughters' birthdays and we enjoyed it immensely. The steaks were incredible. Everything was perfect. My next day lunch was also perfect. We sat in a room by a window and the sunlight made my day.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great spot for friends to get together at Lunch time. We enjoyed the chance to sample a few appetizers vs entrees for a lighter lunch. This made room for dessert, shared by 3 with some to spare! Service was attentive without being obtrusive and our wait staff was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. We lingered over coffee and at no time did we feel rushed. Would recommend this establishment without hesitation.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
The beef was fabulous and
The beef was fabulous and wonderfully cooked. The sides were not quite up to expectation given the price. The potatoes were just ok and the wild mushrooms were a bit soggy and overdone.
Excellent service and wine list.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
left very happy and full
food was cooked amazingly. Took my parents out for my dads retirement dinner. It was their first time, but my second. We had the same server as before. He is great! Although both times i have been here, he forgot to punch in an item to be ordered, his charm and pleasantness was unbeatable. I would recommend this place to everyone.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
529 Wellington went above and beyond! I proposed to my girlfriend this last weekend and the experience was amazing! Our server was very detailed in explaing the menu along with the wine list and the food was to die for! If I am ever back in Winnipeg, I will definitely stop by again!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Celebrated my 60th birthday with close friends. Service was very good and the sommelier's recommendations made the dining experience very enjoyable. I had never eaten fresh oysters before and I found them to be delicious and not the least bit fishy. The salads, including the seared tuna special, were equally delicious and the main entrees of steak (tendeloin and rib) and lamb were tender and cooked perfectly.
My only disappointment was our table location... it was situated near the room entrance so there was more traffic than I care for. Lesson learned to request better seating when booking next reservation.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Lacking nothing, wanting more
This was our first dining experience in your restaurant. I can honestly say that our evening with you was most enjoyable. The ambience was outstanding. We especially enjoyed the service that our wonderful waiter provided. He was attentive to our every need, efficient and most of all he kept us laughing. The food was exquisite and was enjoyed by all at our table. The portions are extremely generous. We definitely will return and will also highly recommend your establishment to our families and friends.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great spot for a company lunch
529 accommodated our 5 person group during lunch quite easily - service was fantastic.. All the food arrived perfectly done. The lobster bisque was so good a couple people want to go back just for it! I've been to 529 in the past for both lunches and dinners and each experience has been worthy of the pricing.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
I went here on my one year anniversary with my boyfriend, it was delicious! Our server kept us entertained and was always there if we needed something ! Food was great , and after dinner they gave complimentary dessert wine for our celebration. It was not noisy at , the fact that they close the doors of the room is something I've never seem before but it made our experience romantic and secluded. Ofcourse this was a higher end restaurant so it was alittle more expensive but definitely worth the money. Will for certain go back there!
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Stupendous service. The sommelier was my favourite part of the whole evening
