I understand it was Valentine’s Day but our food took 1 hour and 20 mins to come a little long since there was just two of us. A quick apology and no offer of anything to make up for the wait.

The problem with Blue Marble is that it is incredibly hit or miss... One night it will be absolutely fantastic and the next... You're not even sure you're in the same place. They need to have consistency, then they'll be a great place to go.

Our main course choices were great. Nice portions and very tasty for both the surf and turf and steak and potatoes. Disappointed in the beet salad. While the greens and dressing was tasty, the beets were tasteless.

Excellent and attentive service. Food was served in a reasonable amount of time. Had to pay extra for parking as they didn’t give me enough to cover the total amount.

We were in town for a family gathering and chose this restaurant because of the reviews and the location. When we arrived, it was quiet and then two larger fishing groups came in and it got louder. Still, we had a booth and the noise level was fine. We started with a couple of shareable plates: the quail and the duck. Both were delicious. We then ordered entrees. My husband had the fish and chips and I ordered the pork belly bowl. We were pleased with the meal and then shared a dessert of banana bread French toast. Overall, the meal was delicious. Our server was a little different but he was attentive and polite. We would definitely return next time we are in town.

Wonderful experience at The Blue Marble! The Beef Short Rib was melt-in-your-mouth, no-fork-required and our Antipasto Platter was delicious as well. Well-crafted drinks and an amazing selection. Great service. Would have preferred not to be in the corner nearest the front desk (very bright, a fair amount of guest traffic), but overall a good atmosphere. Will go again.

Whilst staying overnight at the Winnipeg airport hotel, I walked past the Blue Marble and later found its website and looked at various portals' ratings for that eatery. It looked great, so I booked for four of us. (Turns out very few people eat at 5:30 PM, so we didn't have to book first.)
The service was fast and courteous, and the menu quite varied. The small plate pickerel dinner was FAB, the presentation and the taste put it over the top!
Although one beer was 'flat' on pouring, it was quickly replaced and a good time was had by all.
This is great value for the money.

First time there. Great food & service. So nice to have a great restaurant attached to the hotel. Usually those hotel restaurants aren’t so good but this was lovely! If staying at the Grand hotel Blue Marble must be a stop for dinner and it’s worth the trip out that way even if you live in Winnipeg. Lovely!

Parking is a bit confusing... I'm still not sure the best way to get there. Possibly park in the terminal parkade? Food was really good, service was really good and it was a nice quiet atmosphere

This was our first time at The Blue Marble and overall it was AMAZING! We dine out frequently and we like to try new places especially on special occasions. Definitely no regrets choosing to come to The Blue Marble today. Hands down, it was the best Valentine’s Day dining experience we’ve had from beginning to end! The food was spectacular from presentation to taste and we are definitely coming back (no special occasion required).

Waited an hour for food, unexpected staffing issues had backed up the kitchen. Food was amazing however! My wife had the fish and chips, and I had the Lobster Mac & Cheese. Our server/baretender was attentive to our needs. Will be stopping again.

Staying at hotel nearby and found this restaurant via OpenTable.

Started with a Greek salad. It was not quite what I expected in that it had no lettuce, only cucumber, tomato, olives, red onion, peppers and feta. But the dressing was delicious and the salad was quite enjoyable.

Followed that up with an entree of chicken breast stuffed with bacon jam with a roasted red pepper veloute. It was slightly overseasoned but not in a bad way, and quite tasty. The fingerling potatoes that accompanied were good (served almost too hot!) and the mixed vegetables were a little undercooked.

Menu is quite varied. All three of us had the fish and chips which was very good. The crust on the fish was cooked just the right amount, as were the fries. Server was very pleasant and attentive. We were given the choice of dining in the bar or restaurant and we chose the latter.

So I felt as if this was a bit of a bait and switch. It is at the airport and attached to a hotel. So I didn't do my homework and that is on me. Not a fun warm place. It is a airport joint. My small plates I ordered were good but uninspiring. Same for my wife's meal. My kids liked theirs but they are kids. And finally not enough staff....slow slow slow.

our meal was pretty good, the presentation was beautiful. the service was good except we felt rushed at dessert as when he brought us dessert he also brought the bill, with the credit card machine to process while we were still eating. usually the bill is left and server departs and comes back later for it, that was the only issue. overall besides the bill incident we thoughly enjoyed everything! thanks

First time there. Food was great. Nice looking restaurant. A bit hard to find. Needs more advertising around the airport about this hidden gem. Would be a great place to eat pre or post flight but never knew about it tucked away.

It was very quiet at lunch on a Tuesday. We had a very good lunch and a long chat in the comfortable booth.

Perhaps one problem is the lack of direct handicapped access. Both of us have handicapped passes for our cars, and we were able to get a spot in the airport parkade, and then use the elevator to get to the street. However, then we had to walk (yes, we both can still walk, altho with issues) to the hotel outside. I had called to see if there was any valet parking for the hotel or restaurant and was told there wasn't. This was a surprise, but we proceeded anyway, and it was doable, but not preferred.

We went to have a family dinner as my sister had a flight out just after that. The location is good for business and travelers in between flights or staying at one of the hotels. Very clean and the serving personnel were very friendly and attentive; though we were the only people there at first. My only disappointment was that my soy was just tepid and not hot. Otherwise I would recommend to others.
