Great 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.

Delicious but pricey
My 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.

Dinner for two
Relaxed atmosphere. Server was knowledgeable and friendly. Tuna Tartar was excellent. We definitely will return.

This 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!

Best 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.

Best Food - Hands Down
My 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!

My husband and I thoroughly
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at the Lobby on York. We had Carl as our waiter and he was awesome. The food was excellent, especially the duck quesidillas as an appetizer. The seafood trio and schnitzel were great choices as well. The only thing we didn't like was the abnoxious people beside us, but that is not the restaurant's fault. It did put a damper on our evening even though we tried to ignore them. I suppose we should have asked to be moved, if that was possible. Would definitely go back and recommend it to others.

Excellent dining experience! Food was exceptional; the chef has great flavour combinations. Service went above and beyond. There was always someone checking to see if we needed anything. We would definitely recommend The Lobby for your next lunch or dinner out.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was exceptional, rates as one of our best dinners out in a long time. The crab cakes appetizer was great, the salmon special was fabulous and the steak was cooked to perfection as ordered. The food presentation was attractive, and the service was excellent! Well done!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
The room was quiet and conducive to conversation. The waiter was attentive but not imposing. The food was good but more importantly the atmoshere was good for a business conversation.

Second choice was the best choice!
I wanted to treat my family to dinner and my first choice, as an out-of-towner, was somewhere I had heard a lot about but had never been to. It was extremely expensive so before I made reservations I decided to do a little research. I looked at several places, looked at many menus and read lots of reviews. I decided on The Lobby on York. I'm glad I did. Everything from the wine, to the hors d'oeuvre's, to the entrees and finally the desert, was perfection and the service was impeccable We will definitely be back.

The food was great. Nice portions. We had a 5oz steak and veal schnitzel with a side order of mushrooms. The dessert was incredible - a grapefruit sorbet. The couple next to us had duck quesadilla which looked more like dessert. Beautiful presentation all around the service was wonderful. We would go back

Fillet All Day
The restaurant was perfect! We went at 6:00 which was before the dinner rush so it was quiet and our food came out fast and perfect. Our waiter was absolutely amazing and super helpful. I ordered the 5oz Fillet and my husband ordered the Seafood Trio, both were perfectly cooked, the sides were amazing and I also had Creme Brulee for dessert which was delicious!

Best Restaurant in Winnipeg
The reviews of The Lobby, we thought, were a little over done - NOT SO. It really does have wonderful food, different, interesting atmosphere and our server, Karl, was unparalleled. He was very helpful, attentive and entered into our mood and made the dining experience exceptional. When my husband expressed an interest in 50's cocktails, Karl suggested the Negroni which my husband thought was awesome! My husband had the lamb duo which he will definitely have again . My husband especially liked the interesting and different sauces. I will have the small filet again, besides being delicious, the portion size of 5 oz. was just perfect for me.. The chocolate dessert was wonderful. If you join the loyalty club, you get a free appetizer.

We were seated quickly at the "most romantic" table available but is was significantly too dark off to the left right when you want into the restaurant. Even those 2 small candles were brought to the table, I had to use my iPhone light to be able to read the menu.
The steak was the best steak I had ever had in my life. I was told this from other people before coming as well. The waiter did get my order incorrect and brought me mashed instead of the fries I had requested. I also had to request bread after seeing all the other tables receive bread not long after arriving. We did not get ours until being there 25-30 mins sadly.
Otherwise, all was good. The food, people, service, etc... No complaints.

We had the Korean BB-Q Ribs
We had the Korean BB-Q Ribs and Cesar Salad to start, I had the Filet Minion and Grilled Shrimp, my partner had the Bone-in Rib Steak. Both meals were very good, although I do not care for corn on the cob as the seasonal vegetable in an upper class restaurant as neither one of us care to eat with our fingers is this style setting.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food and service, but a bit on the pricy side.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Location and ambience great!
We stopped in for appetizers and wine before the Eagles concert on Monday, September 16, 2013. We loved the location with a quick walk to the concert after a delicious light meal! The wine menu was great! Servers were extremely attentive with quick service that ensured we made it to the event in good time.

The food was excellent. We had NY steak & a fillet - both cooked perfect to our desired temperature. Sides were very tasty. We went before a big concert and the place was VERY busy - problem is there is not enough "soft" materials in the dining room to absorb the noise - it was extremely noisy. On a regular evening, it would likely be much better for noise level. Would definitely go again to try other dishes that looked yummy as they were delivered to other tables.

Great lunch for hosting out
Great lunch for hosting out of town business folks.

First Timer enjoyed the food
It's the first time I have gone to the Lobby and I really enjoyed it. The service was excellent and we didn't have to wait long for anything - the server had great timing and wasn't pesty about it, which is a big turn off for me. Great filet and scallops! - they melted in your mouth. I would highly recommend the Lobby, can't wait to try other dishes there but I think the filet has me, it was just so damn good!! Lol.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a wonderful experience, enjoyed the food and the service was excellent! Will definitely go here again!

For several years I have driven past this restaurant and always wondered what it would be like to eat here. When my girlfriend expressed a desire to go out for dinner for her birthday, I decided it was about time to give this one a try. What a great decision! The food was delicious (we had Filet Mignon and Grilled Tiger Prawns, and Dark Chocolate Torte) for dessert. The restaurant was beautiful. And the service was helpful. A great night for both of us!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife & I dined here for a special occasion, we both have some diet restrictions so it isn't always easy to find a menu that works for us. The Lobby had a great menu gave us several options and everything was great. Our server was attentive and well informed about the menu. Overlall a great experience
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is not the least expensive place in town. We went there expecting to pay a solid price and get top end food and service. We were not disappointed.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Birthday dinner way past good
Caring and friendly staff, waiter, and what looked like an owner. Had the rib steak, bone in. Never thought a sauce on a steak would add something to it so great; what a surprise.
Great presentation and recommendations.
Top spot in town for me. I'm changing my favourite restaurant to Lobby on York!
Don't let the outside fool you. This is a gem. Can't wait to try the lounge out.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We arrived right at opening so it was very quiet. All staff were very friendly and very helpful, without overdoing it. The food came quickly and was FABULOUS! I thought about that seafood trio for days after, we will definitely be returning!

Definitely a wonderful dining spot. Food, service and ambience all excellent. We will be back.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Even though this restaurant is just up the street from my office, I had not thought about it as a lunchtime option. While the price means it would fall more into the "special occasion" or "very good client" category, the food was great and the ambiance was very nice. Perhaps others thought like me because it wasn't busy on the Friday afternoon that we were there. I will definitely go back again.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, ok service
Inside was beautiful and not too loud. We were a party of 8. Inside the restaurant it was extremely warm for some reason. It was so warm that we asked our waitress to dim lights or do something as we were sweating. By the time we were finished for the night, the temperature finally went down. I asked for medium steak and received well. A friend across from me received my steak and I received hers. Only had a few snow peas with meal- small portion.Presentation was nice, however portions were very small. As for dessert, it was ok. The pecan tart was very chewy and hard. Probably would not order again. At the end of the night, the waitress mixed up a few of the bills/credit cards which was a little frustrating. Overall it was an ok experience.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love for Lobby!
This is the second time I've been to Lobby on York and both times it has been a great experience. I have had the same server (Karl) twice and he's an absolute gem. Chef Jesse is beyond talented and I can't wait to try something else the next time I go. Nothing that has come out of his kitchen has been anything less than stellar. Flavourful, proteins cooked to the temperature you request, and beautiful presentation. I'll be back for sure!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was a quiet Wednesday night
It was a quiet Wednesday night so out waiter only had 3-4 tables but he was very friendly and prompt. The food was delicious and we would go back for sure.

Wine food and service was fantastic. I will definitely be coming back. Oysters were to die for!

Food and Service Outstanding, but..
We have been to the Lobby on York a number of times in the past, and my wife and I love the ambience of the restaurant. Our last experience was awesome as far as food and service went. Our server went out of his way to make our evening special. However, we were seated in a back area that also included a table of 8, a table of 6, and a table of 4. I believe all of these people had just come in from a Jets hockey game, and the mood of the game carried in to our evening. The noise was almost unbearable. We were not used to this at the Lobby, and we tried to make the best of it, but left somewhat disappointed.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great as usual! Best restaurant in Winnipeg by far!
