529 Wellington Ratings and Reviews
I have visited many times. Was seated second floor room by window with dirty ripped screens. Lady bugs crawling all over windowsills.
Steak ordered was supposed to be medium well but was well. Sent back. Second steak was excellent.
Service excellent as always
This was our first visit to 529. The ambience was worth the trip. The food was excellent , as was the service. Eating great food in a romantic historic setting where you didn't feel rushed made the evening special. We especially enjoyed the beef and my husband loved the asparagus- perfectly cooked.
This was our first time here. It was great. They took the time to explain everything in detail and provided perfect advice. Most upscale restaurants you expect very little for what you pay but 529 is the complete opposite! Plan to make this an anniversary tradition going forward.
Such a beautiful place. Whole restaurant is made from an old mansion with each room having seating areas. All employees definitely made you feel royal and high -class. The prices definitely reflect what you get and was all worth it, especially if you have a love, passion, and sense of art with food!
Took my girlfriend for a Valentine's dinner. We made a special point of arriving an hour early to have drinks in the bar, which reminds one of the type of place where men used to smoke in smoking jackets. The bartender came up with a creative drink when my girlfriend was undecided.
The food was exceptionally done. If you like beef, this is the place to go. They talk you through the different cuts, and explain why each has different tastes and textures. The result is that you get exactly what you want, and it tastes delicious.
This was my husbands first visit. We got seated and ordered drinks. My husband ordered Prime Rib and I ordered Beef Tenderloin with Portobelo Mushrooms. The Prime Rib was over cooked like burnt and when asked how was the meal my husband said that is was over done. Server went back to kitchen only to find out that Prime Rib was all over done. He offered a replacement of a Sirloin and my husband said ok. It came within 3 minutes with all the fixing from the prime Rib still on the plate and the sirloin was the flattest steak we ever saw. Could not believe it. It is a shame that the sample cuts they show you are not the same as you get. Too bad that the server does not explain the salads as that was also another disaster. I called on Monday and spoke with Jim and he told me that he was busy as it was lunch period and would call me back. Guess what he did not. Not happy at all of this experience.
This was my first time at 529 Wellington and I loved it! We were greeted as soon as we walked in, got our coats checked and showed to our table upstairs. The service was fantastic! The waiter came to check on us quite frequently. From the time we ordered to the time we received our food was not a long wait. The food was delicious. The prosciutto wrapped scallops were really good and fresh. I had the fish trio with the salmon, cod, and sole, so good. Very friendly staff. Overall a great place! Will definitely go back!
Absolutely Fantastic service from Marnie and the rest of the staff that night.
Fabulous steak, incredible Lobster Mac n Cheese and a great wine menu.
Lots of neat little nooks and alcoves to make your own near-private function - and on-site parking!
Thanks for the Great Experience Winnipeg!
I reserved this restaurant while in Winnipeg to experience specifically the Beef Wellington and was very pleased. The wine list is extensive, was offered half portions since I was dining alone and well-timed courses. I enjoyed the décor and happy groups dining in the cozy room. Crème Brule dessert was well crusted and I opted to accompany it with ice wine.
Tom the server was fantastic. He knows his stuff and the menu/meat description was outstanding. He was the tipping point that made the meal special instead of just good. Steaks were cooked to perfection based on request. Wine options are deep and of great quality. Price to value is a bit off although based on overall experiece i would pay a premium for that quality meal and service.
I went here for a special birthday occasion with my Significant Other. The food was very good but overpriced for what it is. The real problem was the VERY poor service. We frequent many upscale restaurants not only in Winnipeg, but other cities and this is the worst service we have received. We watched our server make eye contact with us three times as we waived him over, and watched him ignore us and serve other tables each time. Twice to the same table. It seemed like we were ignored because we are young and I can only assume our server wasn't expecting a decent tip. We waited for over 25 minutes to order after flagging our server 3 times. For this price range, I would much rather go to Hy's or Velvet Glove where we have always had great food and great service. I will not be returning to 529 anytime soon.
The service was fine and the atmosphere was great as always. My only negative comment would be that our steaks were slightly overdone but otherwise the food was very good. Not the best meal I've had in Winnipeg by any stretch but very good. And so overall I'd say it was a great meal but for the price I expect more.
