A great experience. It was the first visit for my daughter and son in law and they loved it. We were celebrating my wife's retirement and 529 delivered as always!

This is a wonderful restaurant that is my go-to every time I am in Winnipeg. It is worth the taxi drive from downtown. Service is impeccable, food is marvellous. Enjoy, and you will return.

The entire Sunday dinner experience was memorable. The dinners were prepared with great detail, and the service from our waiter Michael was performed with both knowledge and humour. The building is unique, which added to the charm.

Excellent evening celebrating my husband’s birthday at 529 Wellington. The location is so charming. We had wonderful cocktails at the bar and the wine recommended by the sommelier was fantastic and exactly what we were looking for. Dinner was wonderful as well. The scallops were great for an app and our steaks were cooked perfectly and so tender. We will certainly be back next time we are in winnipeg!

From the moment we walked into the restaurant we were made to feel special.

Our waiter was amazing. So passionate and knowledgable about every item on the menu. I can't believe he could keep that positive up beat tempo going his entire shift. Lol

The food was excellent.

The liver pate was as good as my mom's (well close).

After the waiter reviewed the different cuts of meat I so wanted a steak. But then I saw the Rack of Lamb.

It was scrumptious.
My wife had the steak and scallops.
I will be back for a steak.

I made a comment when we booked on line that it was our anniversary.

Sure enough they made it special as u can see from the picture.

We will definitely be back.

This was an amazing dining experience, my girlfriend and myself were in town for our joint birthday weekend. The food was amazing the service was great and the atmosphere was everything you would expect from a renovated mansion turned fine dining restaurant. I highly recommend it to anyone who would enjoy an evening out for a special occasion

Worth it just for the steak! I only order steak occasionally, and this is one of the best places in Winnipeg to order it. I had the 6 oz. steak with 2 giant prawns, and enjoyed every bite. The steak literally melted in my mouth, very little chewing was required! It was tender and flavourful. I was disappointed with the seafood bisque, and wouldn't order it again or recommend it. The other side dishes are really nothing special, and over priced for the portion size. Next time I will have the Caesar salad and my steak, and forget the rest, not worth the money. Did I mention how good my steak was though?!!!!!

We were celebrating a 40th anniversary with an evening at 529. We always find the service to be top notch! We had excellent service and suggestions from our sommelier and the wait staff is always attentive but not intrusive. The food was outstanding. We were only sorry that the prime rib sold out so quickly. We will visit again.

The service and presentation were at its peak; however, the room we were in - the first one to the right of the entrance is oddly lit. It didn't seem as cozy or comfortable as I had hoped.

When ordering sides I'd definitely recommend Doug's mashed potatoes. I wish I could have them every night!

This was my first time going and it surpassed my expectations. Service was great, food was excellent. At first I thought it was quite pricey but the portions were large and the server gave us great suggestions. Definitely worth the price in comparison to other steak houses, can't wait till next time.

Was seated in a tight corner, even though we had reservations. Waiter did not tell us what was on special. Appetizers, cool and yet over cooked - scallops and shrimp. The onion soup was ok. Steak was also cold, but cooked properly, medium rare. Asparagus - half was ok, the other half woody. Overall was poor, very disappointing.

Loved it, although it would stretch my wallet to be a regular dining spot for lunch. Will definitely be back and not just for lunch. A steak dinner will be next. Highlights were, the crusty loaf, the spinach salad, the onion rings and fries, the beef, and the coffee. We were least impressed with the burger bun, which was just alright. Wished for a better option for soaking up the onion soup au jus , such as more crusty bread. Wish I’d thought of that : D Servers were knowledgeable and awesome. Atmosphere is obviously historic and magnificent. Again, a little pricey for our everyday but great for an occasional special outing. My date with my wife was superb. Thanks 529. See you again soon.
