529 Wellington never disappoints! From the spectacular surroundings, to the professional staff, and exquisite food, this restaurant is a must for anyone visiting Winnipeg. In summer the gardens are spectacular and you can enjoy a meal on the patio. When the weather turns cold, you can enjoy the intimate settings of the restaurant and the splendor of the restored architectural details of this once grand home. An experience not to be missed!

Not worth the price, seven dollars for potatoes!!! Not a fan of alacart pricing. A 70.00 meat price tag should come with veggy and starch minamum .

such a beautiful mansion rich with history. Was there for my husbands birthday, we were seated in a lovely room upstairs with a nice view facing the front of the house. Unfortunately there was a party of 15 very noisy American business men. Not really complaining that they were there but we couldn't even hear what our server was saying. We asked to be moved and they were very accommodating and moved us to a smaller and quieter room. We had the prime rib Sunday, it was amazing, the Yorkshire pudding was like I remembered my Mom making every Sunday. The server was superb. This place is expensive but you do get what you pay for. Perfect for any special occasion

My spouse and I had been before but took my parents for the first time. 529 didn’t disappoint. The service was amazing, the food was fabulous and the wine list was impressive. Overall a brilliant experience for us all and will certainly return again when back in Winnipeg.

Excellent food and eating experience. Special beef tenderloin was one of the best meals I have ever had. Food was served promptly and service was exceptional. Price is obviously high, but fair for the quality.

Very busy with many people waiting to get seated, but only took a few minutes. Service was a bit slower than usual but server Jeff was very attentive and kept us posted on the length of time to get our meals. We sat on the patio and even though it was an extremely hot day the umbrellas kept us cool. Meals were great. Scenery is beautiful. Celebrated a birthday and enjoyed the lovely cheesecake. Overall a great place to go for any occasion. Always our go to place when anyone comes to town.

529’s patio is the best in Winnipeg. It’s quiet, away from traffic, and in a beautiful setting where you are surrounded by plants and flowers. The food and service are always excellent.

Food was excellent except for yellow beans which were picked overripe and hence were tough. A few wasps threatened to spoil the outside ambience, but no unfortunate stings. Overall, a nice experience. Waiter Michael was excellent!

Was at 529 last night to propose to my now fiancé. The food was amazing, the staff went above and beyond super friendly and professional, had a wonderful evening couldn't be happier. Also a gentleman form the next table over got our bill before he left without saying a word, I can only hope one day he reads this and know how appreciated that gesture is.

Many thanks to everyone who made that special occasion one we will cherish forever.

529 never disappoints. Portions of meats are smaller than they used to be so sharing is less of an option and makes prices even higher. Never a cheap visit but always excellent.

We had lunch on the patio....so pretty and relaxing. Wasps were just starting to appear, so will probably be our last patio lunch for this summer. Smoked salmon was delicious and the beef wellingtons were quite tasty.
Thanks!

Maitre D did not allow us to sit at the 3 empty tables by the hydrangeas because we didn't know "the code". We chatted with other customers at those tables, and they did nothing special, just asked for those tables. We had a long lunch, and in our 4 hours, no one sat at those 3 empty tables. Very much felt like second class citizens.

This was my second visit in 3 months, and although it was good, I'm in no hurry to go back. My 6 oz. sirloin was absolutely delicious, and I enjoyed every bite! There is no doubt that 529 delivers on quality beef cooked to perfection. As for the cocktails and the side dishes, they are definitely not worth the money. I would like to see a better variety of cocktails and sides offered. They have definitely made improvements to the dessert menu, but we were too full to partake! I would definitely recommend it for the steak but that's about it.
