Beautiful sunroom with amazing food and service. The only request I will make in future is to make sure the coffee is hot.

The Gates had a great Sunday-brunch buffet, had an excellent view of the surroundings via lots of windows, but was rather noisy.

We enjoyed our time at The Gates. The setting is beautiful and the service was excellent. The food was perfect and I would really like to know how the leeks were prepared on the prawns dish as an appetizer.
We will recommend The Gates to other family and friends and we will be back.

As always The Gates, never fails to impress. The level of service is only exceeded by the food. We have been there a few times, but this weekend they seem to kick it up a notch ( which I did not think was possible) a couple fo the staff members remembered us, and knew our name. I expected it to be very busy, and therefore the staff to be hurried. Nothing could be further from the truth. Our waiter seemed to have all the time in the world for us. Yet I noticed he was more than able to tend to his other guests.

I could go on for a very long time as to how good the food is, the Atmosphere, and level of service, but I will simple say, that this is a place we will keep coming back to, and recommend to anyone looking for a really great dinning experience.

Could improve the atmosphere with more mood lighting and soft music. If the musicians weren't playing it was way too quiet and just too bright. It was a little weird. Other than that everything was great.

Comfortable, quiet and intimate setting. Attentive service.
Food was fresh and well prepared, dessert (red velvet torte) was somewhat stale and appeared commercially prepared. The dessert was therefore overpriced.

Went for Valentines Day dinner and the atmosphere was great. Very quiet and we didn’t feel rushed to finish our meal like at some of the other expensive restaurants. Might be a little pricey but the food was excellent. We will definitely be back.

One of the nicest places to eat out in Winnipeg - the food is excellent, the service is impeccable, and the atmosphere is very quiet and elegant. Located beside the Assiniboine River with lots of lawns and trees surrounding the restaurant and event facilities. My favourite place for a really nice night out with family or friends.

We went for Valentine's day and we were unfortunately disappointed. The food was bland and forgettable, one dish was overly salty. The service and ambiance were average. The dessert dish was poorly executed (ex: incompletely tempered chocolate)

Although there was a problem with what I ordered, the waitress was very accommodating as was the chef. Problems do occur but the measure of a person or an establishment is how the difficulty is handled. In this case, it was with concern for me in a most caring manner. Many thanks to the staff of the Gates!

The food was good. Disappointed in the calamari as the poured the chilli sauce over it rather than in the side. As I order my main without chilli oil I thought they might have asked. Other than that a good night

Enjoyed the food and feeling of being outside the city. Service was quite slow considering only 2 tables in room initially. Greeted promptly, perhaps let people sit before grabbing glasses to poor water and then return within 2 minutes to identify /introduce yourself as server.
As we celebrated my sisters 60th birthday- was a different/ special treat for her.

2 of us had the daily soup with our meal-mushroom & wild rice, very disappointing. Could not find any wild rice & soup was very watered down with no flavour. Reuben was somewhat disappointing.

Three friends came to The Gates on Wednesday night anticipating a wonderful evening of camaraderie and good food. However, the power was out in Headingley and many guests had cancelled their reservations. We decided to stay rather try to find another restaurant and our server was most accommodating, moving our table close to the fire so we could stay warm and lighting the table with many candles so we could enjoy the ambiance. Our meals (prawns and scallops, French onion soup and salads) were delightfully prepared and delicious. An unfortunate issue with power provided a delightful and unique dining experience. Simply excellent.

Dorothy, Please accept my sincere thanks to you and your friends for trusting us and continuing with your original dining plans here. I really appreciate your support and your very kind comments - I will pass them on to your server and the Chefs who stayed to cook in the dark. Your patronage is valued and we hope that you will return soon - and that we have the power on!! Ray

The only thing missing was Christmas spirit. Lack of inside decoration and lights and the fireplaces were not functioning. Other than that the service was outstanding and the food was excellent!!

Very nice experience. I was expecting a bit more decorations for the Christmas holidays.
We had a bit of a wait for our meal to come, but we were visiting with friends anyways.

Brunch was just ok. Service was exceptional, but the facility is showing it’s age (trim missing in booths, carpet worn, Several bathroom stalls out of order) and the ‘hot’ food In steam tables was warm at best. Eggs Benedict should be made to order with omelettes, and never serve a deep-fried pre-prepared hash brown at an expensive Meal. Brunch was not as expansive as advertised with only one carved item. Overall I expected ‘amazing’ and I received ‘good’.

The Gates had no record of my OpenTable reservation but was able to seat us anyway. The food was good but not great. Several of the stations were frequently unattended and I had to wait for a chef from another station to serve me. The men’s room was awful with one toilet out of order and another with no lock on the door. I’m in no hurry to return here
