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

For us, it was for the experience. To not only fine dine with suit, tie and dress, but to take in the whole ambiance of real high end chef designed dish and exquisite wine kind of fine dining. Yes, We paid a worthy price and it was worth every smile of delightfulness. Amazing experience

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

An anniversary dinner (staff knew that) for two with seating beside a 7 person business table.

Tasteless salad (tomatoes), uninspired mixed grill, undercooked veal with an awkward waiter.

Will never go back.

One of the best steaks we’ve ever had. Nice outdoor setting. Friendly and helpful staff. Toward the end they got a little busier and pulled our waiter slowing service. The other waiter recognized what happened and stepped up to provide excellent service.

Great lunch! Onion rings were excellent! Waiter suggested a half order which was perfect for 3 of us. Burger special and fish (pickerel) & chips...generous portions. Tried the maple crane brûlée and lemon cheesecake-both delicious! Lemon cheesecake was our favourite, very lemony.
Service was excellent! The patio is amazing, beautiful gardens, large umbrellas at the tables, very relaxing atmosphere.

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!

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
