Georgian
Saperavi, is the first Georgian restaurant in the Canadian Prairies. We offer a wide variety of authentic dishes inspired by our very experienced chef. The cuisine is based on the culinary traditions of Georgia, developed through the centuries. We appreciate that only a relatively small number of Canadians have traveled to the country Georgia so we have brought a part of Georgia to Winnipeg. Whereas the cuisine is specific to the country, it has had some influences from Middle Eastern, Western Asian and European traditions. We have created a unique and personal dining experience, on Corydon Avenue, for our patrons.

First experience with Georgian cuisine and it did not disappoint. We had the Georgian’feast’ and the dishes just kept coming!!! I expect similar to a “Supra”
Also gad two interesting wines from Georgia, made in qvevri (amphora). Try them!!

First time at this restaurant. Our server was very friendly and attentive. She helped us navigate through the menu and suggested a few dishes. We took her up on her suggestion and didn’t regret it. The food was delicious and very generous portions. We will definitely return.

Wow! This was one of the best dining experiences I have every had! We did the meal for 4, an amazing 9 course meal for the guys and 10 courses for the ladies, because the guys were too full for dessert. I will be eating here every time I come back to Winnipeg. Everything was fabulous!!

If you're in the mood for a hearty, home style meal with a twist, it's a great place to go. Food was delicious. Service was very good. Ambience could be a little better with adjusted lighting and a little more separation of space.

I would return to this place for sure.

Food was excellent and portions very healthy. Service helpful and friendly. We chose the meal plan for 4 which offered a great variety and had plenty left over. Will be dining here again in the future.

I booked with Open Table and they had trouble finding the reservation when we arrived on Sept 25. The room seemed a bit loud due to low ceilings. The food was a 6.5 out of 10. Felt like they overcooked my meal, seemed a bit dried out. I've had better elsewhere. I took a chance with our Wedding anniversary meal and was a bit disappointed. Waitress was extremely good.

Our server was lovely, first date, and they had us set up at the window. You can't beat the prices and the service is fantastic. Won't lie the ambience was meh, but go with a great looking date and that's what you should be focused on anyways!

We went as a party of four. Ordered the supper special - a multi-course dinner for four. It was delicious - EXCEPT for two things: we were served #9 and #10 - almost identical dishes. Then, when it came time for dessert, our waitress asked whether we had saved room for dessert, one of us said "no", and that was the end of it. But wasn't the dessert included? (I think she said two desserts?) Rather than just bring us the bill, shouldn't she have asked whether anyone else wanted any? Whether we'd like "doggie bags" so we could take it home and enjoy the next day? Also, two of us ordered a bottle of wine - adn not ONCE did our waitress fill our glasses.

We had Kubdari (very good!), Lamb shashlik (amazing!) and Chakhokhbili (good). The chicken in the Chakhokhbili is bone in winglets. The taste was good but didnt like having to deal with the little bones. Service was great.

I feel like my experience isn’t what most people have from this place. The food was phenomenal though very small portions. The menu is definitely geared towards females, having many vegetable little meat and super small portions. I would imagine if we went for lunch it would have been more expected that we would have smaller portions.
Our server was amazing, she did everything she could to make our time enjoyable. The biggest downside I found, was the other customers in the restaurant. They serve liquor and the couple girls sitting behind us got louder with each drink. The male server employed was doing a great job of keeping them engaged and drinking.
So all in all I did enjoy my time but if you plan on bringing your hockey playing boyfriend, your gonna have to get a sandwich for him before going.

We took our adult children for their first experience at Saperavi (we have been there many time’s). My daughter has a lactose allergy and staff were great at letting us know what was safe. Great food and great service.

I do like this restaurant. It was a nice time. I have one criticism which may not be valid, because I have never been to Georgia or really eaten Georgian food. That being said, it seemed very 'Winnipeg' influenced. That is, we really like cheese, bread, and tomato sauce in Winnipeg (or at least others do), and it seemed as though the menu largely centred on items that reflected these preferences. When I go to an ethnic restaurant, I want to get away from Canadian cuisine, so in that way, it was a little disappointing.

This restaurant is one of Winnipeg's little jems located on the popular Corydon Street. We sat on the patio and social distancing rules were followed and had a nice setting. The service was very good with good assistance with the menu and the food was very tasty and highly recommended. Will deffinitely be going back to try more of their menu.

Apparently there were some computer issues and this slowed service down. Meal was wonderful but no one checked on us after being served and I would have liked to have salt and pepper.

Great food and lovely atmosphere directly on Corydon Avenue. Dining partner was born near this geographical area and commented that the flavours are truly reminiscent of the region. Would recommend the clay-pot cooked stews!

Tried Saperavi for the first time and the food was delicious. The meat was fall-off-the-bone tender and delicious and, for the dishes we tried, it was in a delicious stew of potatoes and veggies. Service was friendly and professional.

Absolutely amazing experience. We had ordered dinner meal for four (we were 5 people, three young high appetite teen boys and two adults). The amount of food this order had would easily feed 6-7ppl. The variety and number of dishes we had was very wide. After finishing the meal, unfortunately we had no space for desert... we all really loved the experience, meals were served at a very good pace, no rush, no wait. Great value for what we had. Definitely recommend!
