About Prairie 360 Restaurant & Lounge
When you dine at Prairie 360, you're taking in more than just taste with a view. The fine dining experience starts in the glass elevator travelling 28 floors up. You're greeted by a friendly hostess, and then escorted to your table on the 30th floor. The ambience is exclusive to our restaurant; a second to none view, cordial & experienced staff, attention to detail, and thoroughly prepared dishes. Most restaurants are a meal, Prairie 360 is a fine dining experience above the rest.

Prairie 360 Restaurant & Lounge Ratings and Reviews
This was our fifth time dining at the re ...
This was our fifth time dining at the restaurant since it opened. We dine out for special occasions and each time select a high-end restaurant. Prairie 360 is important because of its special view which is a treat as part of a special celebration. Unfortunately, due to the quality of the food this time, we will not be returning.
Details: the lamb shank was overdone and tasted like it has been warmed over. The potatoes were not fresh and also tasted reheated. Shredded elk with ravioli: the squash-stuffed ravioli was the tastiest part of the meal, however, the shredded elk on top of the ravioli was not good and also tasted reheated. Shredded meat was a surprise because it was not noted in the description on the menu. In our opinion, that menu selection is not really up to the standard of expensive high-end dining. The desert, a chocolate napoleon, with chocolate mousse between layers of flaky pastry was so bad that we mentioned it and the cost of the desert was waived. We appreciated the recognition of the problem. We did not complain to our server about the quality of the rest of the meal because that was beyond her control. Service at the table was very pleasant so we have no complaints about that. We asked if there had been a change in chef and were informed that there had been a change however, we don't know whether that change occurred since we had last dined at the restaurant, a year ago.
This restaurant is a gem because of the scenic view and the fact that it revolves allowing us to see the city during all seasons. It is an icon for Winnipeg residents and tourists alike. However, the quality of the food needs to be addressed or we fear that its viability will eventually be at risk.

The dining room is well laid out and spacious. The service is excellent. The menu
offered a nice varied selection , however, in a few cases the meal didn't quite live up to
the description on the menu. On one or two occasions they were missing items listed
for the dish on the menu . Of course the view is spectalcular. On our last visit my steak
was horrible....mostly fat and gristle and any area of actual meat was totally red even
though I had ordered medium. The waiter wisked away the offending meal, graciously
offered a replacement and ultimately removed it from the bill. I must point out that my
wife & I had been at Prairie 360 with friends for a special occasion and I had ordered the
same Rib Eye Steak and got a similar steak, not quite as bad. Having had a very enjoyable
evening I did not want to draw attention to the fat & gristle on my plate when the waiter
took it away.

Most of the food was good however I found mine very bland. Appetizer was bruschetta - carmelized pear and goat cheese - no flavour - bread was thick. Would have been better on a crostini. Main course was pork medallions. No maple glaze found - bits of charred remains of glaze - next to pork. Farro and cabbage was very bland. However have been there before and had great food. Arctic char was a hit with me back in April and good again for two guests this past visit. Would recommend revisiting pork dish.

Good for the view and experience. Food not good... got a large piece a meat (beef short ribs) and only able to have about 4 bites - the rest was full of fat and not eatable. cheese and fruit tray appetiser wasn't that amazing for what you pay! cool for the experience of scenery etc, but the food wasn't near worth the money.

Overall the evening spent at the revolving restaurant was superb. The view was outstanding but earlier or later in the year would be better so you see the city in daylight and the second revolution gives you the city lights. The food was excellent and our server did an great job.
On a bad note, we got stuck in the elevator! The door closed and the elevator didn't move, the door would not re-open and no one replied when we called for help. Then it went down one floor to floor 29, but again the door didn't open. Finally it went one more floor and stopped and the door opened. We got off! It was only six or seven minutes but at thirty stories up it was a bit unnerving! The outside elevator with the view was really cool so all ended well.
We would recommend this restaurant.

Came here on an anniversary date. The first thing you notice is the spectacular view - it might seem obvious, but you really can't appreciate it until you're there. The service was outstanding - our server was so friendly and kind, just the right level of attentive, and never felt rushed. The food was quite good - we started with soups, and mine (a pulled pork and rice soup) fell a little flat, but everything else was excellent. Even the drink selection was great - extensive wine list and some great craft beer options as well. Overall a wonderful experience.

1. The signage to go from the parkade to the restaurant was very poor. I checked the website and remembered to use the left lane to access the parkade and to look for the glass elevator. Unfortunately the signage and directions from the parkade (P2) to the elevator were missing or very ambiguous. We happened to arrive at the same time as another group and we were both lost: it wasn't just me that found it confusing. It was a first visit for both of us - not a good impression.
2. The wait for the elevator to the 28th floor was too long.
3. We made it to the 28th floor and met a reception person behind a desk. They confirmed our reservation and directed us to take another elevator to the 30th? floor. Another long wait. Why not one elevator all the way?
4. The service (Patrick) and food were very good (arctic char and cornish hen) but the dessert selection was from the 60s.
5. This comment space is very poor: if I want to change a word anywhere, I click on the place but as soon as I've typed one character, the cursor jumps to the end of the comments. I need to click, type, click, type.... to make a change. Please fix that right away.
6. We visited on a Monday and the place was quiet - only a few customers.

The Prairie 360 Restaurant still has a great view of the city as it revolves around. The food was fresh and quite tasty. They still have the omelet and waffle bars which have a bit of a line up at times. The omelet bar, salads and deserts are now on the portion of the restaurant that revolves around. A few less tables which means it is less crowded. Had an omelet and a waffle which were both made while I waited - worth the wait. The waffle bar had all sorts of things to add to your waffle. The omelet bar had the usual mushrooms, onions, cheese, tomatoes, peppers and pre cooked cut up bacon. The only thing missing that I like is ham. The salads, hash browns, potatoes, etc were okay - there were 1 - 2 people always refreshing the buffet items. The only thing that I missed from the former restaurant was in the desert selection. There were the usual assortment of tarts and other tasty deserts. Unlike the old restaurant that use to be there, the tort cakes were absent. Didn't realize how long it had been since we were last there until our bill arrived and we qualified for the senior's discount. Gone are the old ornate chandeliers and the old chairs. Otherwise, a great view of the city, decent food and definitely worth the senior's rate !

The arctic char was so salty that it couldn't be eaten. The pork was very dry. The third one was not enough elk on the dish. The steak was okay. The food and the cook needs to be looked at for improvement. Enjoyed the scenic view.

Would definitely return to this restaurant but would select my food more carefully. The elk ravioli was a glorified roast with horrible rancid tasting ravioli. My wife's meal was delicious though and she gushed over every aspect of it. Overall we enjoyed our experience of seeing Winnipeg from an amazing view that changed as the restaurant revolved. Would recommend to friends and would love to return again! Warning: Definitely not cut out for a shallow pocket though, prepare to pay for the view.

Due to the fact that the price is high, less people went there. Therefore, there's only 1 or maximum 2 servers which serving lots of tables. In a result, this comes to poor service.
Food wasn't great at all. Even McDonalds is better than that. They charge a premium due to the location, which I can understand, but if you charge that high price for food, please, make the food taste nicer.
It's not worth the money. I only recommend people to there to experience their first time. Not recommended for going second time. In terms of price you pay, and value you get, it's definitely you paying more money, and the value you get is very little.

Great food, service, and ambience. Unique dining options warrant the admittedly higher prices. It's worth it. Our group tried, among other things, the duck poutine, caramelized radish with lemon and dill, and Cornish game hen with cherries accompanied by truffled polenta. Service was attentive without being overpowering, and, of course, the view cannot be beat! Be sure to check the website for instructions about getting there --it can be tricky.

We have been to this restaurant previously and not been impressed at all. After hearing that there was a new chef and menu we decided to try one more time. We were glad we did. The food and menu was excellent. As always the best view of Winnipeg.
Will definitely recommend it to others and will be back.

We had been to 360 prior to this visit (2015) and enjoyed the food better the first time than we did last week. The menu didn't offer what we were looking for like the last time and that is why we came back. Supper was not something that I would order again ( Elk Ravioli), the meat was dry and didn't have much flavor.

Our reservation was for 12:30. We arrived at the reception desk and there must have been 25 people standing there with no one at the desk. Once we were seated, it was a nice Fathers Day brunch. Looked like they were short staff

I had been here before, but my partner had not (even in it's previous inception as The Revolving Restaurant) and he wanted to try it out. The food was delicious, and the service was far better than what I had previously experienced there. Would definitely go again!

Very unique and scenic experience! My husband and I decided to go here for our 5th wedding anniversary and really enjoyed it. The food was delicious and top-notch but we found the portion sizes to be a little on the small side considering the high prices. We would go again but only for a special occasion!

The late afternoon experience was enjoyable and the meal was well portioned and savoury. The viewing experience is what we came for and it did not disappoint - the city and surroundings were breathtaking.
The ride up in the glass elevator to the transfer floor where you have to enter another elevator to complete the ascent up to the restaurant would be the only thing they could possibly improve with clear directions or signage.
The kids (and adults) liked the 72 minute duration to complete one full rotation of our viewing pleasure. Pretty much the amount of time it took us to order and finish our meals.
This is a great place to take someone for a memorable experience.
The only real complaint I have is that I tried to call 6 different times throughout the day to ask a question before our stay and I could not get through - just an answering service.
I think phone reservations would have improved the restaurants attendance - I could see many older folks being turned off by solely relying on an electronic booking via the internet. A good old fashioned phone call is still required in today's society.
I would recommend this establishment to a friend or family.

Went for a family celebration. Food was just OK, veg or any sides extra (and very pricey) Service was good but waiter was clearly not enjoying his shift. Overall experience was disappointing. will not return.

We loved the view and the ambience. The food was delicious and the server was very good. Our only complaint is that we felt that there was more importance paid to style and how the food was displayed on the plate and less or no thought to value. One sprig of broccoli and 8 to 10 one inch long thin julienne carrots is not value to most earning less than a six figure income.
