Diner Reviews
  • "The room was a little crowded, cold and loud, But the excellent food made up for that. We were never rushed. It was a family dinner for our anniversary, and everyone was very satisfied with their dinners. My son said "best calamarie he's ever had.He's coming back just for the appetizers. From thirty somethings to both our mothers, 86 and 90 yrs young, nothing but great reviews. We would definitly choose The Gates for our another family celebration."

  • "We were kept waiting for a very long time in the lobby for a table even though we had a reservation. However, once seated we had excellent service The quality and variety of food was excellent, please go hungry! It was busy, but not too noisy for conversation. I wouldn't take small children with tiny appetites purely because a child's plate costs $20. As a senior, I didn't feel my appetite was large enough to do the $35 a plate justice either, but there was lots more there had I been able to eat it, and it really was delicious. The location is excellent, so close to the city, but you really feel you are in the country. We walked around the beautifully kept garden afterwards and it was very pleasant."

  • "Appetizers and main courses very good. Waiter should ask how diner likes salmon done, service mostly excellent, somewhat slow removing appetizer plates (esp. As restaurant was not at all busy), otherwise very good experience as in previous visits."

  • "We chose to celebrate our anniversary at The Gates, with our family, and were pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent, right from the Manager greeting us at the door (and opening it for us) to the servers who circulated through the dining area refilling our drinks and clearing dishes, to the carriage ride after the meal. We had a lovely day. We would highly recommend The Gates for brunch, and we will be coming back for dinner in the future."

  • "The venue and layout are very quaint but is a bit noisy and the service was sporatic as the venue filled. There was no tour, even though it was the first time for all us and we expressed that. The eggs Benedict were overcooked and when a new batch was asked for they were undercooked, the sauce was very watery. This is our favorite dish so sorry but overall this buffet is being judged on this. The desert selection was great but the breakfast fare was barely warm. Lovely buffet but it is just not worth the money, I would not recommend for the value alone."

  • "My wife and I had a wonderful evening celebrating her birthday. We had great service and delicious food and as it was my wife's 65th. birthday your server Eden surprised her with a special birthday desert on the house. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness. Can't wait to come back!!"

  • "This was our first time having Sunday Brunch at The Gates and it was worth every dollar of the $35 per plate cost. This is one of the best brunches I've been at in years! The selection is unbelievable, including both an omelette & crepe bar, made fresh as you wait. We were blown away. The ambiance is wonderful."

  • "We attended The Gates on July 12th for a 55th birthday and found our experience to be fantastic. Lori was an awesome server and made our evening very enjoyable. I will be recommending the venue to friends and family."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Given the setting and the online menu, we expected a fine dining experience. We got a dated dining room, more reminiscent of mom and pop country inn, and a hostess dressed so casually, we didn't realize at first she was restaurant staff. The food was very good, but the food alone does not warrant the prices."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "The gates never disaaponts; top notch service, amazing food and great ambience. One of my favourite restaurants. They made my sisters birthday so special."

  • "We were originally to be seated upstairs, however I am presently suffering with bursitis of the hip and going up those steps with a plate of food would have been virtually impossible. Thankfully when I asked, they sat us on the main level."

  • "We brought our neighbor to The Gates to celebrate her 90th Birthday. They were ready for us when we arrived which was great as she walks with a cane. The waitress was wonderful engaging our senior companion in conversation and doting on her each time she came to our table. The service was wonderful..hardly any wait time and never rushed. The only complaint I could make would be the menu...not exactly made for a 90 year old but we managed to cut her large sandwich into small pieces to make it more manageable. She really enjoyed the food and loved the special birthday dessert they brought her complete with sparkler! Overall a great choice for her Special Day!"

  • "I was told that I should have specified that we wanted dinner in a dinning room not a way off table in the bar with no table cloth. hostess made it sound like it was my fault for not specifying dinning room. This dinner was to commemorate the first anniversary of my husband Ernie Holland's death. Although beginning was really bad the service and food were good"

  • "We are a long time diner of this establishment for 10+ years through different ownerships. Their Sunday brunch has always been the best in the city until our last few visits, where the quality and selection starts going down hill while the price went the other way. This visit was the worst we had experienced, the food selection and quality was sub-par, the dining area was humid and uncomfortable. We were charged the full amount for a child under 12 which the server usually asks to confirm and we did not give it a second thought until later in the day that we were over-charged."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Food was very good as always but the room we were seated in was down stairs in the back of the restaurant overlooking a parking lot. Had none of the ambience the restaurant promotes. Was very disappointed. Would have cancelled had I known that was where we would be seated. Had the feel of sitting in a garage with a noises air conditioner blasting cold air. Will now think twice before booking there again if that is where I have to sit!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The food was great and the table service was about right in terms of attentiveness. Our only complaint related to the location of our table for four and the proximity of the next table. The conversion of the building resulted in the operator using a central pass through area as a dining area with more tables having been squeezed in than should be. The result is that servers and customers are brushing by too close to your table and you have too much familiarity with what's happening at the next table. At these prices you shouldn't feel like you're eating in a diner!"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "the timing of the meal, made the evening comfortable an we didn't fell rushed. We will be back."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We went here for our anniversary. The food and ambience was great, and the decor was very beautiful. Our meal came to $88 (we had the prime rib and sirloin steak), which included the price of alcohol. Compared to other restaurants in Winnipeg selling similar food, the price was very reasonable for the same quality of food. If you are looking for a romantic dinner, or you want an excellent brunch (we've been here for brunch many times), I would definitely recommend choosing the Gates!"

  • "Great food, service and quality dining experience. The buffet / brunch was enjoyable and good for our kids too! The atmosphere is serene."

  • "My husband and I dined at The Gates to celebrate my birthday. It was our first time, but definitely not our last. The hostess sat us at a window which was our request from the online reservation website. We ordered the Chateau Briand which was prepared to perfection and was plated by the general manager himself. The serving staff were very attentive and always ready to address our requests. Our server even presented me with a lovely slice of cake with a sparkler (complete surprise). We were able to speak with the general manager at length after finishing our meal and found him to be a very gracious and friendly man. Thank you to the entire staff at The Gates. We will certainly return."

  • "It was my first time at the Gates and an experience that will take me back. It was my girlfriend's birthday, so a special occasion! I can't think of anything that would have made the night better. The staff was friendly, professional and attentive. The food and wine were superb. And the ambience was great. The on duty manager stopped by the table to check on our evening, which was a very nice touch!!"

  • "I took my boyfriend to The Gates on Roblin last Friday (May 30) for his birthday. It was a first time visit for both of us. Our server was wonderful, the food was great (prime rib and bison ribs). The scenery from our window was very pleasant with all the greenery and nice to see the horses in the distance. After dinner we took a little walk around the property and really loved what we saw. A beautiful place to have a wedding, nudge, nudge, wink, wink. My boyfriend was probably still thinking more of the huge slice of birthday cake that was presented to him. All in all we had a wonderful time there and would certainly go back for any occasion even if there is no occasion."

  • "We come to the gates every Mother's Day and this year was great as always. Our only small disappointment this year is the table they have us. We were tucked in a little corner and didn't feel as comfortable there as we have in prior years. Considering we made our reservations back in February, we'd have thought we'd get a better seating. "

  • "This was my second time at the restaurant and I took friends who had never been. Unfortunately we were seated right beside the French doors where there was a very large party. This was not a rowdy group but was very loud because of their numbers and our proximity . When the doors where closed it was fine but they were left open several times by the guests and, what annoyed me most, by the server. I think the 3 or 4 tables in this section should have been left for walk in, not for people with reservations. There was also a couple celebrating a birthday beside us who were annoyed as well. The food was great and so was our server. I wish this wasn't our friend's first experience at The Gates."

  • "I invited My son and his fiancé for easter dinner at the Gates. Very welcoming staff, Great table,lovely view. For my appetizer i ordered the maple Salmon. i got less than an ounce of salmon and did not like the chips on top,not sure where the maple was?? The other 2 appetizers were lovely and well presented. My son and I both ordered the canadian steak. My son asked for chicago rare. I asked for medium well. I also requested extra vegetables instead of a starch. The highlight of our meals was,I'm sorry to say very disappointing. The steaks were small and both overcooked. I got a little bit of veg under my steak. We had a nice bottle of wine and desserts were lovely. The price of this meal was not justified for the food we got."

  • "Brunch is too great for words. Everything you could ask for, simple too much. Food made to order and fantastic service on the part of the servers. One complaint, the prices are getting out of hand. I know that Easter is special day, but $45 per person for brunch is too expensive!! As much as my husband and I enjoy Gates, we will consider some where else next time."

  • "My friend and I celebrate our birthdays at The Gates every year and it never ceases to please. The food is wonderful, great ambiance, great service, we're never rushed during our visit, and this year they had the added treat of a horse drawn carriage ride for patrons. I'm usually thrilled to just offer a carrot to the horses in the paddock, but this was beyond my greatest expectations and totally made our day. Thank you, The Gates, for helping my friend and I bring in a wonderful birthday!"
