We had a wonderful evening! One of the guests in our party was gluten intolerant - the serving staff was aware of the food prep and made good recommendations, as well the kitchen was prepared and able to accommodate her dietary restrictions. the musical duet was a bonus!!

We had an outstanding 5 course
We had an outstanding 5 course meal and wine pairing. The flavours were matched perfectly with the wines and the service was impeccable! Table at the window overlooking the bridge and the lights of downtown Winnipeg was delightful - and we didn't know there would be music too! Simply superb...

Four of us had dinner recently
Four of us had dinner recently and it was excellent.
Had been there a year before on opening night, May 1, 2012, which was my husband's birthday. We were not impressed at all at that time. This recent visit has changed our views completely. The meals were superb and they have gluten free items on the menu.
Delicious. Lovely service. Will definitely return.

My friends and myself had a most enjoyable lunch at Promenade Cafe and Wine. Service was friendly and efficient. We all enjoyed out meals. I have recommended that my sister and her group of church ladies have lunch there on their next outing to Winnipeg.

Our dinner was delicious!
Our dinner was delicious! We had the evening special and the restaurant accommodated us by making it for three of us (it was listed as being for two). In most high-end restaurants, the bread basket is included, while Promenade charged extra for it. The only issue was that the timing was such that the sun was right in our eyes during the meal; one of the other diners near the window saw us having to shade our eyes and closed the drapes on our behalf.

Enjoyed the atmosphere and scenic view. Our request for window seating was granted
even though we were only two and the window table seated four... this was much appreciated. Food was great. Everything was fresh and tasty with generous portions. Service was friendly and not rushed. We found pricing very affordable.
We will definitely return.

My sister and I went for lunch on the weekend. Although we were running late (and called ahead to advise) the staff were still very friendly and it didn't feel as though we were putting them out. I had the procuito, pear & brie sandwich croisant with (side) house salad and the wine pariing - it was delicious! My sister had the salmon with carmellized red onion on a croisant with (side) poutine. Also quite good, although I preferred my choice (I am biased towards anything with pear and procuito however).
The view is excellent and noise level was not a bother. The table were cozy and we had a great view of the bridge/river. Can't wait to go back to try their dinner menu, loose tea and those amazing deserts in the display case!
5/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have been several times and each time is exceptional. The food is prepared with obvious expertise and care. What I noticed and everyone at my table noticed was even when we were finished and full and satisfied we were noticing the delicious scent of everyone elses food that came by us. yummmmmmmm. Thank you very much.
P.S. I apologize to my waiter yet again for accidentally punching him in the face. so sorry.
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, slow service
If you have time to wait then by all means go there. The food was really good.
5/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
My children took me to the restaurant for Mother's day when each of them where available with their schedule. It is a cosy restaurant with great home cooked meals.
5/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our 3rd dinner visit. Our group of four decided to order the prix fixe menu at 28$/person for 4 courses, (+16$ for wine pairings). We ordered a bottle of red at $40, which the group enjoyed.
Our meal and service were fantastic, as always. We started with pâté with grilled baguettes, pickled onion, pickles and a grainy mustard. Followed by an AMZING mushroom soup served over olive tapanade crostini. Our main was the most tender pork au jus and crisp roasted veggies. All portions were extremely generous, we took home quite a bit. We finished with dessert teacups of chocolate mousse with whipped cream & beignets. Heaven in a cup.
Great service, food & ambiance. Will become our regular dinner spot.
5/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, great service
Our server was excellent - she kept all the orders straight for our large group of ten, was always available when we needed her, and we did not have one issue when she gave us our separate bills (on which we'd shared multiple things). I was so pleasantly surprised by the prices - very very reasonable, especially for the quality of the food and wine that we received! My one disappointment was that there was nothing chocolate-based available for dessert! I will definitely be returning!
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Top of the line
We had a wonderful experience with great food and service. Although the restaurant was full, we could talk comfortable with minimal noise level and ample space between tables. Staff were attentive, but not overly so.
5/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Yum, Yum, Yum and More!
Fantastic gem of a restaurant tucked away in St. Boniface. As a frequent brunch aficionado, the restaurant was already one of my favorites in the city. Now having eaten a celebration supper there, I am even more thrilled with the menu, service and atmosphere. Our waitress was excellent, knowledgeable and friendly. The peppercorn steak is to die for - savory and grilled to perfection! All food selections - grilled mushroom salad, salmon, pork tenderloins with maple glazing were amazing.
5/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
This restaurant is one of the most amazing restaurants in Winnipeg. It is a must visit.
6/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Having eaten at Promenade a few times I can say that they never disappoint. Service is professional and friendly, the decor is warm and tasteful, the view of the provencher bridge is awesome. The menu is French, the quality of the food is excellent and the presentation is lovely. The noise levels at lunch time are high but its nice to see a locals owned and operated establishment be so busy. At night the volume levels seem lower for some reason. Probably just a different crowd.
6/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Enjoyed our lunch very much, had an excellent view of the Red River and the Provencher Bridge.
The Croissant au Prosciutto was very good, unfortunately could not accompany it with a Red wine.
The staff was excellent.
6/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
We all enjoyed our food very much. The mussels were fantastic - wanted more. Deserts were amazing. Floating Island superb - crème brulee - delicious. All four of us were extremely satisfied and looking forward to our next visit. All staff very pleasant and knowledgeable.
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Tasty traditional fare
Good French food with friendly attentive service. Loved the half-portion options for many dishes on the menu, both mains and appetizers.
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
As it is our habit, we went to promenade for Sunday brunch before the baseball game. We knew what we wanted and what to expect (menus really weren't necessary. The only problem seemed to be a kitchen that was short staffed that day which resulted in a delay in getting our food. The food was, as usual , very good and full value for the price. We would recommend it highly.
7/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our dining experience. The food was wonderful - from the bread service, soup to the main courses, each was delicious. Our server was attentive and efficient. We were very pleased to have made the Promenade our choice for dinner.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great view - great food
This is one of our favourite eating spots in a city full of wonderful ones. The consistency is also very impressive. Our server was exceptional in our latest visit. A little more chocolate for dessert would be nice!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant is a great
The restaurant is a great place to have lunch with friends or family. We didn't wait long for our meal which is good if someone only has an hour for lunch. The soup and sandwich were delicious. My sister rated the quesadilla the best in town.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love this place. They have amazing food at amazing prices and always accomodate my dairy intolerance! It's great for everything from date night to my kids' birthday brunch.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We're coming back
Relaxed, welcoming atmosphere coupled with friendly, knowledgable staff and delicious food combine to produce a most pleasurable dining experience. We enjoyed the set menu with the wine pairings. I strongly recommend to do the wine pairings, especially if your knowledge base of wines is limited. You'll be educated. We'll be returning with friends.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a treasure!
So glad we finally decided to check Le Promenade out. What a great little restaurant. Amazing food and LOVE that they do half servings. Superb wine list, super knowledgeable and outgoing server.
Yeah, it was a little slow, but we don't mind that, they were super busy and we like a place where they don't count the minutes until they can re-seat your table.
Lovely live jazz at the end of the evening.
Great selection of teas to finish off my evening, just wish we'd had room for dessert, I'm sure it was a scrumptious as the rest!

French and French Canadian Classics
As stated above all can be found overlooking the river with stunning views of the forks and the Canadian Human Rights Museum. Clever plays on traditional dishes and prairie ingredients (bison for instance) combine to give diners a taste of what living on the Candian prairie is all about.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for breakfast. Orange scented french toast was delicious! My son had the eggs benedict with salmon and said it was great. Service was very good and the view of the bridge and new museum gives a great conversation piece.

First time experience in the restaurant was very enjoyable. We will come back!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had family visiting from Australia so wanted a unique dining experience for my cousin who is a world traveller and a foodie, like my wife and I. So had to be French Canadian fare. We arrived early due to storm cutting short our outdoor plans but the staff were unused and had a perfect table for us with a view of the bridge and Human Rights Museum, as requested. Our waitress was attentive without being intrusive and made excellent suggestions on food and wine. Mussels as appetizers were great, as was the Cog au vin and Beef Bourguignon. Dessert was good but defeated us. We sadly don't recommend after dinner coffee. Our cappuccinos had little foam. Oh well. That's the Prairies for you. Overall, 5 stars and happy to recommend to anyone.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just loved this delightful
Just loved this delightful restaurant in the French town area of Winnepeg. We dined inside and had a fabulous view of the famous pedestrian footbridge as the sun set. The food was excellent. We had mussels as a first course. We each had a chicken dish. I tried the coq au vin which was not traditional but very tasty. My husband got a chicken cutlet half order which he loved. The portion was huge. We also got a half order of bread. Breads and desserts are all made on site and are truly outstanding. We had a poached apple in pastry with a wine reduction served with vanilla ice cream. One dessert was ample for 2. The main courses came with mashed potatoes and a vegetable medley, also tasty. Service was wonderful.

Great location and superb coffee
The location and view onto the Seine River were lovely. Though it took a while for someone to wait on us, once there, the service was attentive. We ordered egg dishes which were good. The omelette, however, was light on the fillings and could have had more flavour. The coffee was hot and full-bodied and delicious even in decaf! Disappointing, however, was the use of soy margarine on the toast and no real butter, a staple in any French style restaurant. We will go back in hopes that the restaurant will ramp things up after reading these reviews.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We reserved on the internet
We reserved on the internet and were given a very good table beside a window, even though there were a lot of people in the restaurant. We only had breakfast, but it was very good and the service was tops. This was our 3rd visit and we will go many more times. We live in south St. Vital and we don't mind the distance. We have recommended this restaurant to many people. Some have let us know that they also were very pleased.

Promenade Cafe and Wine a Delight
We chose a fixed four course dinner with matching wines. The food was all excellent and the pairing of the wines was appreciated.
The view is spectacular, lots of windows facing the Esplanade Bridge, the Museum of Human Rights and the Forks.

Dinner was very good! Our waitress was very attentive as well. Would go back for sure:) Loved the music with dinner.

Best Mussels anywhere
The menu is great but love love, the borscht & the mussels are the best anywhere
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food, service, and ambiance were all at the level that I expected. Our table had no complaints from drinks, appetizers, entrees, to desserts. I liked the used of local ingredients, everything was fresh. There was a wide selection of desserts for every taste, well prepared, and generous portions.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place has it All
We enjoy frequenting this great restaurant. Beside the delicious food (especially the mussels) we appreciate having the option of ordering smaller portions. Service with a smile must be their motto as service is always efficient and friendly. On our last visit both the salmon with Saskatoon berry sauce and the steak were beautifully presented and tasty. Great wine list of which the staff is knowledgeable. We have recommended Promenade to several friends.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Lots of wine options
Nice variety menu
Can't customize most meals (ie.no onions etc)
Not ALOT of options - not bad though
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was the perfect spot for a quiet celebration of a special birthday. We were very well taken care of and the food was excellent. The room is beautiful, quiet and cozy. Everything was very well prepared and the mussels were absolutely delicious, as were the desserts. My only comment would have to be that the lighting at our particular table was extremely low and we found reading the menu difficult. I have a feeling that all the dishes were very beautiful, but we did not get to enjoy that part of the experience except for a few glimpses with the flashlights from our cellphones.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Night Out
What a lovely evening! We were out for a special dinner to celebrate a couple of birthdays. The food was absolutely wonderful and our server was excellent - attentive, interesting and made our visit extremely enjoyable. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. I would most certainly recommend this restaurant to friends and acquaintances.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have been to Promenade several times and always enjoyed it. We love the location and the night views and the fact that the restaurant is in St. Boniface, where we live, is a bonus. The food is always great and so is the service. It is a restaurant where we know we can have a great meal and enjoy the company of friends in a quiet, peaceful atmosphere. It is also where my husband and I can celebrate special occasions and have a romantic dinner.
We had the sharing meal for two this past Saturday and I would recommend buns be served with this meal. Otherwise - great!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
After theatre treat
A coming together of a great atmosphere, views, food presentation and flavours. Service was prompt, knowledgable and courteous but never overbearing. If you like great food, well presented, this is a must.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have been here many times for breakfast and lunch. We went for the first time for dinner and found everything outstanding. We had the prefix menu and wine parings and found the food and service equal or better than many five star restaurants.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
An enjoyable meal
I always enjoy the ambiance of this (for us) local restaurant. The service is attentive without being oppressive, the food has always been well prepared and creative. When booking I would always specify the large dining room which has a great view of the CHRM and the Esplanade.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Four of us had dinner on Sat. evening prior to the symphony at Promenade as it is conveniently located just across the river and it is really fast and simple to get to Concert Hall. It also has great food and our server was wonderful. Although they have a featured Prix Fixe menu every week, everyone chose off the menu. The food was served in a timely manner and although we didn't have time for dessert, it looked delectable!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food is excellent and the prices are extremely reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant!
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
great find !
Very nice and intimate setting. Even in winter, great view of the river. We enjoyed our food, the shrimp appetizer was a solid hit, as described with lots of garlic. I know I'm at the right place when more than 1 or 2 items on the menu tempt you. Very nice wine list at reasonable prices as well.
We had the salmon and the gnocchi, both were well prepared and as much as either of us could eat. Dessert was a little flat, the sugar pie just didn't seem to live up to its name. Loved the presentation of the baked baguette, would have impressed more if it were still warm.
Will certainly return,
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Lovely little restaurant
This is definitely one of my favourite restaurants so far in Winnipeg. Being relatively new to the city we have been trying a number of new restaurants and I must say the food here is probably the best I've had so far. The service was impeccable! Our food arrived very quickly and was absolutely delicious. We will definitely be going back!
