The event that brought us here was my wife’s birthday. We had heard good things but were completely disappointed. They knew it was an event as I had $150 of flowers delivered for the table that day. They sat us at what would probably be the worst table in the building along the main hall with no wall...? It was loud, bothersome and cold, after reserving over a week ahead. The service was average yet very friendly. Sadly there was not much attention to the details my wife and I have enjoyed at other fine dining such as 529 and other WOW locations, or other fine dining in our travels. The food was average at best, no attention to details, the crab was served barely warm, waterlogged and chewy, the turnips were “woody and unedible” as per the birthday girl. THEN MY $99 serving of JAPANESE WAGYU BEEF THE BEST THEY HAD TO OFFER WAS SERVED AS THE PICTURE BELOW SHOWS... and yes I specifically commented on the poor presentation of our meal and was told “just try it”??? The meat was cool, almost cold, to be perfectly clear I had not tried that unique beef before and was very keen to enjoy it unfortunately it was off putting... maybe it’s supposed to be served cold?

DISAPPOINTING IS ABOUT ALL WE HAD TO SAY AFTER A BILL FOR THE 2 OF US TOTALLED OVER $400.00!

We are the type of folks that are quick to praise, and equally quick to air our poor experiences be it on a charter holiday, car rental or dinner out... This time we just had to say something as we just couldn’t get over our shock and disappointment with what was supposed to be a special evening.

Dale was super attentive and looked after our party of 5 with great care. With two company presidents in attendance, I was delighted with the service we were given. We were not rushed, and felt that the service was impeccable.

We will definitely return, as this is an impressive venue with amazing food.

Thank you!

Whereas our executive group is quite used to $$ restaurants for special occasions, we were put off by what we considered to be the excessively high price for a business dinner. Our bill was over $600 for three people (which did include two bottles of wine and a martini). $45 for osso buco or pork tenderloin a la carte is simply too much. That is one of the reasons that we don't patronize the other WOW franchise 529 - the dimension of value (i.e. cost vs benefit) is too narrow. The wine list is not very good - we could not find a really full bodied cab. The service was outstanding, though the ambiance was a little sterile. The entrance to the restaurant is weird - the concrete tunnel is off putting.

Was not great. Seemed like an off night on many fronts. The egg plant Parmesan taste like a Burger King onion ring.

Nothing came out together, forgot my salad, drink came up not on the rocks, asked for it right and it was dumped in over rocks, wasn’t offered a dessert menu...

Was told it was great but not so much

Delicious and great service!!

Went with family so got to taste a few different dishes. The "black sage" (seafood pasta) was marvelous. The chicken parm. was text book and perfect. Both were great and well enjoyed.

I ordered the boar ribs. Chef's recommendation was right, it should be cooked to "medium". Most people would have loved it. But I am stubborn, and like my meat more cooked, so ordered it medium-well. It was fantastic, and I would happily devour it again.

Excellent very dry Tanq martinis. Osso Bucco was tender and flavorful with lots of tasty marrow. Veal Marsala was excellent. Truffle fries were very good. My only wish would be for smaller sized portions.
Thank you for a wonderful dinner.

I did not like the menu choices. I had to alter the food I ordered. The fillet of seabass were 2 little pieces of seabass with THE TAIL ATTACHED. Most of it was raw. I don't think that the seabass in general, based on the size, was worth the price.

The atmosphere in the bar which was where we ate are meal was boring, dark & old fashioned.

I am from out of town, and come to Winnipeg at least once a year. I can GUARANTEE YOU that I will never return to that restaurant.

The service was very good, patrons obnoxious and loud, considered leaving before we ordered but they soon bailed. Had the carpaccio and black magic pasta it was excellent. I have been there the year before with a Christmas party and was disappoint. The kobi was over chared as well as all vegetables. The meal tasted like carbon everything.

Our second visit to Carne was even better than our first. The steaks, Tempura Lobster and of course the roasted Mussels were all delightful and cooked to our expectations. The service is friendly, helpful and not in your face but there when you need something. Thursday is our preferred day because of the fresh oysters special at "buck a shuck"! All in all, a great food experience in a very comfortable setting.

My wife brought me here for my birthday and I tried the Japanese Wagyu A5 tenderlion and Snake river farms Wagyu ribeye! Both were amazing with the Japanese Wagyu being a very special experience for a beef lover. Worth the money. Both were cooked to medium rare perfection and seasoned just right. Great sides too. Great service, very quick and excellent overall experience.
