529 Wellington Ratings and Reviews

We are not "regulars" when it comes to fine dining, but were made to feel very comfortable and welcome.
Our server was exceptional in taking time to explain everything and make suggestions when we asked.
The food was phenomenal.
The service was fine and the atmosphere ...
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.

Our server Rod was fantastic, very friendly, knowledgable and charming. The onion soup with port, the caesar salad, the prime rib and Chef's trio fish dish were all fantastic. The only negative was the loudest of the adjacent tables - a quiet dinner it was not!

Once again 529 delivered! We eat here for birthdays and anniversaries and I often stop in for lunch. This time I decided to try their fish - I had the black cod in Miran Soy Butter - i may never order their Steaks again it was that good. The carpaccio was excellent as usual and their creme brûlée is the best I've ever tasted.

This is an absolutely excellent restaurant. The service is fantastic. The restaurant is in a converted older, expensive house so you get the authentic feel of a historically significant building. It is restored to pristine conditions. The food is truly incredible. I could not imagine a better place for us to have gone for this very special occasion.

Took my wife out for our 1st wedding anniversary and decided to go to the best restaurant in town. We started off with Mojitos close enough to how they make them in Jamaica. Our second round we asked Levi to have the mints and lime crushed the way it's done in Jamaica and he personally did it for us. Our Appetizers were a half order of the Onion Rings, 2 oysters and the Tartar tuna. All of them, excellent!
For our main meal shehad Rack of lamb, medium rare with the seafood trio. I had the Wellington, medium rare with Chef's Mac and cheese. Everything was excellent, although I was expecting the bread on the wellington to be a little more crispier than what was given.
Very impressed and I do recommend 529 to anyone for any reason!

Item ordered was poorly prepared - brisket was extremely greasy and the sandwich did not contain the appropriate dressing or cheese in an amount that could be detected. The waiter was inattentive and did not check on the quality of the meal. Have contacted the restaurant - no response thus far.

You might expect such a fine establishment to be a bit snooty. But the staff is very warm and helpful. A very pleasant dining experience, unrushed and relaxing. Some may find it a tad pricey, although it's worth it.

The table we were seated at was way too big for two people, we felt we had to almost shout to each other because of the distance across the table. I thought it was totally unnecessary to provide a "look" at the different cuts of meat, a little unsettling to be honest. And I find the prices to be way out of reach for everyday dining, especially an a la carte menu. The food was very good, beautiful venue, but not my style of everyday dining. I appreciate the chance to voice my opinions.

The staff here are old pros - friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. This is my very favourite steakhouse in Canada, and one of he best in North America in my experience! The Sommelier can take your budget and find the most succulent gems from their cellar to enjoy with the your Prime Canadian steak. The old mansion is so charming and the e pertinence is one of a kind.
Treat yourself. You won't be sorry.

Outstanding! 529 was as great as I'd heard it would be. The building is beautiful, the service impeccable, and the food was amazing. My husband and I both enjoyed the rib eye and lobster tail, since we were celebrating our 38th anniversary. The cocktails were tasty and imaginative and the dessert was the perfect finish. We were gifted dessert wine, which was a nice touch. Two negatives: the wine prices are astronomically above retail, so no. Not ordering any of them, and a loud guy at the next table went ON and ON about "he-who-will-not-be-named' (US President-elect). We'll be back.

Atmosphere is wonderful- great respect to paid to the original character of the home. Table service was very good- not intrusive but good attention to how the meal was progressing.
Prime Rib was a little rubbery- not as pleasant as prior visits. Steaks were outstanding.

All in all was good however a little disappointed with the steak - ordered medium and it was rare
We sent one steak back to be cooked more but it still came back rare. The crab we ordered with the steak was a very small portion as well. The rest was all delicious and good will definitely go back. All staff are great and funny

From the moment we walked through the door we felt taken care of and special, from being greeted, being seated to our amazing server Russell who truly made our evening. He had great suggestions rolled with our crazy requests and even reserved us a table in the lounge to move into after dinner so we could continue the fun. The food was outstanding from the appetizers to the steak which was melt in your mouth delicious. Truly a fantastic evening!

I always love going to this classy restaurant. It is so unique, being in an old vintage home.
The moment you walk in, the people working there make you feel welcome. They are very kind and try to be as helpful as possible.
We went there for lunch on a Thursday and were seated in the main dining room as requested. The ambiance is so incredible.
We were quickly attended to and ordered a glass of wine. Wines are expensive but it's great that we can order a glass of wine versus a bottle. The wine sold but he glass was good. My wife loves Pinot Grigio and she was very happy with the selected wine. I first ordered the Malbec but I found that the Chilean Merlot was more to my taste.
My wife ordered the steak sandwich and I ordered the hamburger special. We shared this meal.
We were a little disappointed in the steak as it didn't have that much flavour. It was thinner than expected and I believe it could have had more kick to it...more spices.
The hamburger and fries were awesome. The meals were quite filling and so we had no room for desert.
We will definitely go back. It's always a favourite place of ours.
Next time, we want to try the French Onion soup.
