Portion sizes were strange. Way too much of one thing, not enough of another. Unsettling temperature of meats. The oysters were outstanding but the mignonette has really big uneven chunks of shallot. Would come back for oysters.

I was looking forward to oysters, beef tartare, and duck confit which was not on the menu yet due to COVID but will be back again to try it all.

The charcuterie and cheese board & drinks were excellent. The mains (pickerel & seafood crepes) were only average, which was surprising as I’ve come to expect excellence at my wife’s favourite restaurant!

We’ll be back for Oyster night soon!

We have been several times before and have always had fantastic service and food.

This time service was lacking. Our server didn’t bring out any of our food and never came back to check if we needed anything. We even had to go to the front to get our bill.

I would say Peasant Cookery's Beet Salad was the best I've ever had however I was very disappointed at our visit. The beets had no flavor. Spoke to the Manager and Wait Staff and they said they would mention it to the Chef. I doubt that I will order that the next time.

The occasion was a mini friends reunion, we haven't seen each other in 10yrs. so of course we were catching up and not looking at our menus. Our server was very polite and understanding. Gave us all the tine to catch up. Would come around to make sure everything was alright. Once we finally got to the menus, the options were all mouth watering. The food was great, the service exceptional.

First time to this restaurant. We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality and value of our food. We had the calamari and carpaccio to start. This was followed by the pork chop, pickerel dinner, rabbit pasta and tourtiere. Excellent dinner and would recommend this restaurant

It wasn’t my first time here and I usually love it. Today I have to admit I was a little underwhelmed with the food. My partner’s first time and he enjoyed his pork chop... I tired it and it was delicious. The charcuterie board was a bit to daring for me this round and I’ve had better tourtiere from you in the past.

Service was excellent. The ambience and decor were quite nice but the bathroom could use some repairs. I think there had been some recent vandalism. I was disappointed they had no cocktail menu despite having a very nice bar. My wife and I were also disappointed in the desserts. Used a strawberry syrup as opposed to rhubarb syrup on the spice cake, and the roasted berries on the crepe were actually fresh berries. We should have been told before we ordered because what we got was not exactly what we ordered. With the struggles around Covid, I can understand these issues. Despite all that, I still give this location 4 stars because the Mains were amazing. My wife and I had the Rabbit Papparelle and the Pickerel. Portion size was quite large on both dishes, and the flavors were a slam dunk. I would recommend and go back again.

Peasant Cookery is one of our favourite spots in the city. The food is always top notch without being pretentious. To start we had the beet salad, which is one of our all time favourites. The whipped goat cheese is perfectly balanced and the toasted wild rice gives the dish amazing texture. We also tried the chicken livers for the first time and they were phenomenal. The dark and stormy is dangerously good. We'll be back!

Didn’t realize that the Oysters weren’t on the Wednesday menu in the evening. Only from 1-5 pm. Kinda the big reason we go. Might not have reserved knowing this in advance.

We had my brother and his partner visiting from out of town. The food, service, ambience, etc. we’re absolutely excellent.

Extra care like paper menus and well spaced seating for the virus indicate that they are supporting social distancing and extra care.

Peasant is one of my personal favourites in Winnipeg! Always a homely feeling and the food is comfort and always delicious. I’d definitely recommend attending on Wednesday for buck a shuck oyster night! Be warned though, there is normally a wait so make a reservation.

This is my favourite restaurant as of Wednesday. I had the charcuterie, my wife had the steak. I got the chef to give me a side of cheese, chefs choice. Fantastic. I will not review the food, you have to go there and eat. You will NOT be disappointed.
