Requested a dish I’ve had 10+ times that is no longer on the menu. They said they could make it anyway, and it was nowhere close to what I had in the past.

Not sure if the chef changed or something but I used to LOVE Promenade!

Loved the ambiance, food was pretty good too. Drinks may be a little expensive, but there are so many other places to go to in the area that we just went with water and could go for a coffee/beer after. Great place for brunch!

This is one of my favourite spots for a Sunday Brunch. Make sure you have reservations though as it can be hard to get into!

Very disappointed croque Madam has been removed from menu. Being a French restaurant you can’t get more French than that and it was always done beautifully. !

Absolutely exquisite except the mashed potato was rather tasteless and disappointing considering the taste of the main dish chicken and vegies and soup.

I had the pork tenderloins which were very tasty (maybe slightly overdone but better that than underdone). The broccoli and creme brûlée were both very good. I was not a fan of the mashed potatoes, though. They were a bit dry and packed down. I would have preferred seasoned roasted potatoes. But otherwise, it was a very pleasant evening. Thank you.

Certain dishes portions were small (poutine). Service was very good though and flavour was also very good. The dressing on the salad was lacking gusto. Tourtiere de bison was excellent.

Great service and location. We sat outside on the patio so there was noise from traffic but the view of the cityscape is worth it all. Cost is a bit much for breakfast.

My Mum and I went to Promenade Café and Wine for brunch on their patio. Our server was quick and very personable - great service - and the ham and Swiss crepes we both had were so delicious! We had our brunch on their expanded patio - which has the most incredible view in the city.

Had brunch on the patio and the view of the museum, bridge, downtown (etc) was awesome! Our reservation was for 11:00 which is right when they open so we were the first ones there and the only ones seated for a little while, so the service was excellent at the beginning. Then once it started getting busier our server was very neglectful. We didn’t get checked on at all after that point so didn’t get any drink refills. We both ordered egg dishes and thought the potatoes were very underwhelming. They were very bland and came to us cold. The rest of the food was enjoyable.

My wife and I decided to try Promenade for our first time July 10th, the day of our wedding anniversary. We mainly enjoyed our dinner visit, conceding that they had only recently returned to in-house dining due to Covid 19. The ambiance was mainly nicely quiet, lovely music in the background and a comfortable setting. We had a table in the back corner which was nice. I would not have wanted to be by the street as the sun was shining much too brightly. They have curtains that hopefully can be closed. I think it was actually nicer that half the tables had to be taken out due to Covid lol (not so great for profits). You could see the riverside not too far in the distance which was nice. We noticed that peoples' attire ranged mainly from nice casual to more dressy. A gentleman came in shorts so I guess they are acceptable.

The food took a bit of time to get, about half an hour but it was manageable. I had the smoked trout for an appetizer and quite enjoyed it (it is served cold and smoked in house which is a nice touch). For dinner, my main entree was the bison and pork pie which was good also. Everything was beautifully laid out. My wife had the onion soup which she really liked and the beef bourguignon which tasted very good but only some of the beef was tender.. some quite chewy.

Service was friendly. We got seated right away. The waiter was new to the dinner menu as she came over from breakfast time and was not yet fully familiar with the menu.

Price was reasonable and for a $100 bucks with tax and tip, not overwhelming for a couple that want to enjoy a night out in a fining dining leaning restaurant.
