Went for a birthday dinner with DH & daughters aged 11 & 15. Our first time there. The steaks were to die for. Youngest daughter had the lobster mac & cheese which she loved. The portion was quite large. The onion ring tower appetizer was very neatly presented. We only went with two sides & it was more than enough... More

Came for our Anniversary dinner after hearing about this place for years. It is indeed absolutely stunning and unlike anything else in the city. The parking lot occupants definitely hint as to the 'type' of diners inside! The service is of course impeccable, and the presentation of meats was impressive. Ultimately we had fine meal.

On a recent winter visit to Winnipeg, I had the pleasure of having lunch on a weekday at the much talked about 529 Wellington and it did not disappoint. Located in an old mansion on the river, the restaurant is decorated in a classy and traditional way. We sat in the front room where the bar is and it's quite... More

Very good steak. Cooked perfectly . Vegetables and add on mashed potatoes were fabulous. Scrumptious desserts. Service was definitely above average. First visit and I was very impressed.

This was the first time that we had dinner here after dining several times for lunch. The waiter was great splitting our meals as we shared one meal choosing to order more vegetables. Great meal but very expensive, especially when ordering wine.

Went for New Year's eve. Location was easy to find, great parking, and overall nice neighbourhood. Service (from Chris M and Mike) was amazing. Interior was beautiful. Only comments for improvement - the Mac & Cheese side dish needs work. It is plain and we were hoping for more. We would also recommend a selection of melted butter to go... More

Had dinner for four people on New Years eve. Started with appetizers, tower of onion rings and shrimp cocktail. The onion rings came hot and perfectly prepared. The shrimp were huge and absolutely delicious. the only minor complaint would be a shortage of their great cocktail sauce. For main courses we had a New York steak, lobster tails, grilled tuna...

Not much seems to change over the years. Very good roast beef, steaks and Manitoba lamb. Good side dishes are extra. Wine list is extensive, but the sommelier was able to identify excellent value options. Expensive - with many patrons dressed casually.

Beautiful restored building but I wouldn't call this high class. I'm guessing there isn't a lot of restaurants like this in Winnipeg so they consider this 4 star??Food is very average and nothing to rave about and it is overpriced for what you get. Paying for the ambience for sure. Wouldn't go back.
