Beautiful night to dine at 529! After a perfect Cosmopolitan I had the Beef Carpaccio with Parmesan Reggiano, a 6 oz Filet Mignon paired with a half Lobster Tail, Twice Baked Loaded Baked Potato, my partner had the Cesar Salad, the Fish of the Day, Grilled Halibut with Spinach and the Twice Baked Loaded Baked Potato Perfect, Perfect, Perfect - no surprises here :)

I have to admit, that 529, has now earned the top spot as my favourite restaurant. For years and years, it was Hy's, but after an extremely disappointing recent experience there, I was so happy that 529 has taken over for their unfortunate decline. Food was fantastic! Service was impeccable. Thank you 529. We'll be back again and again.

Welcome by maître-di was very nice however waiter could have been more friendly and less abrupt in his conversation with us and our guests who were visiting from the UK. They asked us to take them to the best steak restaurant and while the food was excellent the service left a slightly bad taste.

We sat on patio which is very nice. Started off with the oysters, they were very small so that was a waste of money. I had the 6oz fillet which was done and tasted perfect, it came with a scallop, jumbo shrimp both were properly cooked. Also a 1/2 Canadian lobster tail which was mushy. Husband had prime rib which was perfect. Also had mushrooms and the lobster Mac and cheese (3pieces of lobster in it) they were tasty. Server was ok and because it was my birthday they brought me a free glass of Dessert wine.
If I am going out for steak this is the only place I would go. Great service, intimate surroundings and the food was superb!

The servers were very prompt, friendly, and professional. Food was amazing, even their 6oz steaks, as small as it is, it's packed with juiciness! Would recommend to all who are looking for a nice quiet romantic dinner or even a casual lunch. You get what you paid for!
My 12oz New York steak was terrible, I had a pile of unchewable meat on my plate by the end of it.
Not worth the price.
The food was good but way over priced. I can't believe they are still in business. The value is not there. a la carte to the extreme. Really? $10.00 for a baked potato! Although the featured starter salad of the day was lovely, it was after all a starter salad and when we got the bill, they were $14 each. Had trouble getting coffee refills. Felt rushed to leave. The waiter even wanted the party I was with to guess which dessert I wanted, as I was away from the table when he came back to take our dessert order. Overblown with its own sense of importance.
Our waiter was very good however we felt like we were being rushed. She could have taken her time a more.
Treat every visit
I make sure to visit every time I come to Winnipeg. I took a colleague for his first experience and now he's hooked! Thanks for another great visit.
Great waiter-Levi and great location and building. Food was excellent but I would have preferred that my side dishes were hotter. They were okay, my taste.
Best service in town and best rib steak in Western Canada - what more could you want in a high end steak house?

Celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary at 529. Waiter was attentive, cordial and knowledgeable. First time dining on the main floor and think I prefer the upper level which is not as dark. Food was excellent as usual.

Wine by the glass selection could be a touch more extensive. Would like to see a French wine or two added, perhaps Cote du Rhone. They served the wrong vegetable dish we ordered All in all, good experience.

Phenomenal doesn't describe the experience. Although quite pricey, the cuisine, and the service are above many standards. Wait staff was incredibly knowledgeable and courteous. If you like the feel of an old mansion with doors with the old keyholes you can see through and a grand entrance you'll love it at 529!!
May Long Weekend
AS always the restaurant was great. From the greeting at the front door to the walk upstairs to our room all folks very pleasant. The food was excellent from presentation to consumption. The only notable last evening was the noise coming from a table of 10 directly beside us. They were quite loud to the point our group of 4 had some difficulty hearing each other at times. Realize you can't always control that and maybe we should have said something but didn't.

It was a beautiful day (plus 20) May 13th sunny and the restaurant was very quiet. We asked to sit outside on the patio but were told "we cannot sit outside it was not open" and I asked well why isn't it open and the reply was "we take longer than other restaurants to open". Ordered the ribye steak sandwich special and it came well done instead of medium rare .. and had no marble fat running through it so it was questionable weather it was indeed a ribye. Was not told it was a la carte and it came on a plate sitting on top of a piece of garlic toast (with mushrooms I added on) and no side or garnish. I had ordered a small mixed salad to start so not sure if that was my side. We were not in a rush so the half hour it took did not bother us. Waiter was friendly but not very attentive.

529 lived up to our high expectations. Food was spectacular, especially the twice baked potato and beef tenderloin. Server (Tommy) was very attentive and anticipated what we needed. It was our 28th wedding anniversary and we celebrated a fabulous evening in style. Expensive but worth it!

Superb service, excellent staff throughout our visit and we felt very welcome in this beautiful historic home. Food was just right and we will both recommend and be back. Look forward to checking out the patio!

I try to visit 529 whenever I am in town. There isn't a bad seat in the house. Reliable menu, personable staff, and the best food in the province. I couldn't have had a more enjoyable meal.
A very enjoyable Mother's Day Dinner
The food was very good especially the filet and the jumbo prawns. The french fries were quite good. The service was a bit slow due to the very busy evening.
Very good steak. I am a person who is not well versed in fine dining terminology, and they seem to assume that I knew what crème brulet was etc. Other than that it was a great meal and we ended up in a private wing of the building by ourselves so the ambiance was great
Great Dining Experience
It was our first time at 529 Wellington and we were celebrating our anniversary. It was a great dining experience that I would recommend for anyone's special occasion. It is pricey but the food and service was fantastic so it is all very worthwhile!

The atmosphere was friendly, yet professional. We were greeted as soon as we entered & taken upstairs to a smaller dining area. We were the first ones there, but soon filled up. Service was excellent: our waiter ( please forgive the lapse of my memory, name?) was knowledgeable of the menu & able to respond to a special dietary request, thank you so much.
unhappy ending ...
when we were told our table was required for the second seating we felt horrified. we spent good money for our meal .. we were there to celebrate a birthday and it left a very bad taste for us at 529. we will not return and should have been told of this policy perse when we booked our dinner reservations. very unacceptable treatment from a fine dining establishment ...
Had a reservation but they were able to get us in early. Great food and service and you get what you pay for
Christmas Gift in April
This evening was a gift to my wife for Christmas 2015 after a memorable tour of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. An excellent dining experience worth an above market price.
We enjoyed dinner very much. If you can afford the dinner we would recommend this restaurant.
My husband and I always enjoy the incredible food and wonderful service.

Greatest restaurant experience!! Not one complaint. I expected to pay more. The food was perfect so was the service and so was the service. We will definitely be back!! Soon👍
This restaurant has welcoming, fun staff, and the best steak you'll ever eat! I took my wife here to celebrate a personal achievement of hers and was really glad I did! They make a great sangria and I highly recommend the peppercorn rib steak. Our server gave us the "beef tour" before we chose our meal which was entertaining and educational.
Amazing engagement dinner
We went to 529 to celebrate our engagement. The staff was extremely kind and friendly and even provided us with a complimentary desert "on the house"! :) We thought the steaks were easily some of the finest we have ever had. The portion sizes for the steaks as well as the sides were huge! We loved our time, and it was a very memorable evening for both of us!

Everything was delicious. I had French onion soup, onion ring tower, mixed Grill, sautéed mushrooms, mashed potatoes, and snap peas. Service was pleasant and attentive. Will be back.
It was our first time in the restaurant, I've heard a lot of good comments from my co-workers about the food and service of 529. So me and my friend tried it on my birthday and we're very glad that we tried it. The service and the food was great and our server was very nice and really knows what to suggest. I can say "the overall experience is superb!" And will definitely comeback.

Food and service quality was less than ideal compared to past visits. As we were seated just as the resaturant was opening, I equated this to them not being ready to serve immediately. I will give the benefit of the doubt on this occaision.
Value not there anymore
Dined here the other night and steak was subpar - my 10 ounce newyork was thin and grisly. Had to also send back side of mushrooms as they were way over salted. Usually dine at 529 once a year and past experiences were good, but now the quality no longer matches high prices.
Special Occasion - Anniversary
My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary and we had a lovely time! One of the best wine lists I have ever seen, knowledgeable staff, and utterly amazing food. Our server was attentive but not overbearing (which is rare). He ensured we had enough wine and water at all time.
