Celebrated a friend’s 65th birthday. She was very impressed with the atmosphere, food and service. Even though it was very busy, service was great as always. Food order came out quickly. Both menu choices were tasty. Portions are generous. Very festive atmosphere.

We had a very nice table upstairs.Once music turned down the atmosphere was very pleasant.Our waiter was terrific and recommended a New Zealand wine which was delicious.One person in our group had fish and chips and was

satisfied.The other two had the hot turkey sandwich.Lots of lovely meat ,good potatoes and gravy ,the only complaint was that it could have been warmer .We were able to chat and take our time and will definitely be back.

You know the adage "you get what you pay for". This is true with 529, where you get old-school impeccable service (sommelier included); very generous portions and premium quality food.

We did not eat steak, we had the ahi tuna and the lobster tails and both were cooked expertly but the side dishes stole the shows: the seasonal golden beets in a butter sauce were delightful and the other vegetables we tried were fresh and with ample amounts for two people.

We also tried the spinach and beet salad and the quinoa salad which were not over-dressed and had a wonderful bite to them, especially the spinach salad with a citrus vinaigrette that we will try to replicate at home.

Celebrated a family birthday. Lots of good choices on the menu. Specials were great. Food served in a timely manner. Servers Carl and Jeff were outstanding as usual. Hostesses were friendly and inviting. Greeted with a smile at the door. Nice to have someone take your coat for you. Decorated nicely for the holidays. Always a family favourite.

I dont even know where to begin with how incredible our dinner was the other night. We were in town celebrating a birthday had few special requests and 529 definitely delivered. The service was outstanding, the food was incredible. We are ready to fast forward to our next getaway to WPG and dinner at 529 again.

Our meal was excellent, as usual. We have never been disappointed with this restaurant. My 6 year old granddaughter has requested to dine at 529 every year since she tried the filet mignon on her 2nd birthday. Highly recommend this restaurant for either lunch or dinner. Both menus are very good.

The reason I would not recommend is not because there was an issue it was because most people could not afford. 300.00 for two to dine is excessive. Food was good but I gave had an equally good steak at the Keg. Service was good.

Always our “go to” place to celebrate an occasion or just sit and have a relaxing meal. Service and food are always top notch. The hot turkey sandwich was delicious. Nice thick portions of turkey with dressing. The pickerel was nice and lightly battered. Never disappointing here. Have been here lots but still have lots more on the menu to try. Everything always looks so good!!!

We went for a special birthday dinner. When making the booking, you are asked to indicate if it is a special occasion. Not sure why that is asked because there was no acknowledgement of the birthday. The service was very efficient to the point of feeling rushed. We had a 6:30 reservation and were home by 8:00 pm. I had expected we would have more of a leisurely evening, particularly given how pricey the meals are.

We went to 529 for our anniversary supper. It had been a few years since we were last there. The menu is good with a variety of choices. The only problem is that some of the appetizers and sides are made for sharing. Now this might be good most of the time, but i wanted to try the onion rings since I heard they were great. My wife does not like onions, I really did not need 14 of them. They were very good and the 11 left over came home with us. The service was impeccable. The "tour de boeuff" is quite informative and helps with the decision process. All in all, a good meal, with the steak done as requested. We had roasted cauliflower but the sauce was a bit gritty. Not a fail, but just not silky smooth. The creme brulee was done very well. I do like the fact that you can get a bottle of wine for $34. I am not a wine snob and hate paying substantial money just because I would like a glass with my meal. All in all, it was a good meal, the pricing was fair. The only thing that is detrimental, and this is purely a personal choice, is the decor. I understand it is an old building with a lot of history, but it just does nothing to make me feel good. Thankfully the service from everyone makes you not focus on it.
