I took my two young adult children for my son's BD. The food was spectacular - everything we ordred. My daughter was recovering from wisdom teeth removal and they made great suggestions - scallops, french onion soup - that she could enjoy and consume. The sides are large and the three of us could not finish all of them and every single thing was wonderful. The waiter was also very pleasant

Although often thought of as a "steak house", this wonderful place does gourmet food including great Canadian Prairie Prime Grass Fed Beef, creative and fresh seafood, and great side dishes and salads.

My son travelled from Boston, and I from California to be in Winnipeg for a John Denver Tribute concert and happened upon this restaurant on the Trolley Tour.

The concert was outstanding and so was our dinner at 529 Wellington.

My wife and i always look forward to our visits to 529. When making a decision over the sides it was suggested that we have a half order of one if we were ordering three, never new this existed and when ordering for two it was the perfect choice, we will return. Thanks

We went to 529 for my wife's birthday and had the most wonderful server who was enthusiastic and accommodating to our needs. My wife had the seafood trio and was delighted with all three. I myself had the ribsteak with the marrow sauce, and it was fantastic. I am not well versed in all steak houses but only on a handful of occasions have I had a steak at a restaurant and been satisfied that it was better than one I could have made myself at home. You do pay a price for 529, but it lived up to all of our expectations, including a complimentary desert wine for my wife who could not have a desert due to some dietary restrictions. Highly recommended for a special night out, only regret is not getting the server's name to commend him for his wonderful service.

529 Wellington has been my goto place for steaks in Winnipeg. However, lately the steaks have been largely a miss-too thinly cut and not the best texture. I have been opting for fish. I had the fish trio which I enjoyed-especially the cod and the salmon. Not a fan of Ahi tuna. I probably could have asked for two helpings of one of the other fish but I forgot. Otherwise the meal was well presented and served.

Highly recommend for a special occasion. You are offered a "steak /meat" tour to help you make the best selection for you. If you don't like steak, have the black cod, it was phenomenal!
The side dishes are generous. The wine list is so large, that you would be best to ask for recommendations.

It was our 10th wedding anniversary and where we were seated was in a room full of windows not in the beautiful fancy room I'd requested. It was very drafts and cool as it was cool and raining outside. My Ribye was cold, tough to cut and very grisly & chewy. Not worth the $$. Very expensive for what we got to eat. Was told the sides were big but definitely not enough for 2. $180 later we were disappointed. Our first visit was our last.

A birthday lunch for my 83 year old aunt was lovely. The server was attentive, service was amazingly quick. He even brought a dessert wine for my aunt without being told it was her special day. He just picked it up from our conversation. Food was delicious as always. All staff are so friendly and helpful. Love this restaurant!!

My wife and I visit here at least once a year for our Wedding Anniversary and or a very special birthday, as well as the occasional luncheon. The ambiance is outstanding, great friendly professional service, and outstanding dining. The portions are very large and we always share an appetizer, salad, potato and dessert. Wonderful place for a romantic dinner, and fabulous that you can actually carry on a conversation without a lot of background noise from other patrons. While some people may find it somewhat pricey it is definitely worth a visit

Excellent restaurant. Went for special birthday lunch and we all enjoyed it. Service from 2 waiters, beautiful outside patio, excellent food. I have to say the cognac peppercorn burger was just excellent however the weird presentation of the "burger" on 2 pieces of untoasted white bread was so strange. Why not a bun? Why not a green side if you are trying to present a "Salisbury-type steak burger"? The burger and sauce were superb, just ruined by the unnecessary, lack luster bread presentation.

Our 4th visit over the last 6-7 years, always awesome, food, service, community, everything is bang on ! Except ! I thought I had the bill covered for the two of us, with tenderloin steaks, sides, dessert and tip and without alcohol, with $160 cash in my pocket. This year we added the onion tower but I abstained from dessert to compensate. Two years ago our bill was $118 before tip, made it an even $150. This year, same meals except for the sub I mentioned Onion tower for one dessert was $228 with tip closing on $300. So double the price tells me not to wait 2 years otherwise I may be looking at $600. We shall return soon because no matter what the price everything is soooo good.

Feel free to remove my post except for the first and last sentence if you wish, we love coming to your Restaurant. Our rating is 9.9
