It was a little chilly by the window, but the fantastic French Onion Soup warmed me up. A number of starters are available in half portions which is appreciated. Nice selection of entrees and save room for dessert.

We have been to Promenade on many occasions and enjoyed ourselves and our food selections. However, this special occasion was less than satisfying. Confusion over our salad order and a main course that was tepid, all made for a disappointment that we usually do not expect here.
Not sure we are in a hurry to return.
Very nice atmosphere, very good service. ...
Very nice atmosphere, very good service. Food was well composed and presented, very creative takes on some classic French dishes. Wine list was not long, but everything on it was solid. Service was attentive but not overly familiar, and very knowledgeable about menu (slightly less so about wine but nonetheless an 8 out of 10). Great dinner all around.

Our group members seemed to enjoy their meals. I found that the half portion of pork tenderloin provided only two slices of meat, though they were thick-cut, and a number of smaller potatoes, but no other veg. So I was disappointed in that.

It was a milestone Birthday for a longtime friend of mine- so I took her out for lunch to celebrate. We both enjoyed our meal & the service was very good. It was a little noisy as there was a large group but we had a nice visit. Only one suggestion the soup was delicious but was just Luke warm.

This is not the best dining in Winnipeg. Deer & Almond is far superior.
The staff are not properly trained and the place feels rather amateur mostly run by young inexperienced staff. It needs someone to seriously manage the place.
The food was OK but not exceptional. For one salmon dish they ran out of rice! How can a restaurant run out of a basic ingredient? This again shows the lack of management oversight.
There are at least two far superior restaurants in Winnipeg.

First time visiting Promenade and was thoroughly impressed with everything about the restaurant. Seafood gnocchi was absolutely delightful, steak was seasoned very well and cooked exactly to our liking. Will definitely be back soon.

With a window seat we had a great view of the Esplanade Riel and the Canadian Museum of Human Rights. The food was awesome, service great and did not rush us out after dessert even though the restaurant was busy. We will be back.

The food was very good and the service was excellent. We had the prix fixe dinner for two. The smoked salmon was excellent, the steak was cooked perfectly and tender. The potatoes were not our favourite but they were interesting and well presented. The creme brûlée was excellent.

Our first visit to the Cafe was for Sunday brunch. We had 11am reservations and our table was ready on time.
We were seated promptly but our party of 5 (3 adults and 2 children) were left with only one menu because they had a shortage.
2 of us ordered beverages and they were quite slow to arrive. When they did, we were not offered any milk or cream for the coffee. Coffee was cool by the time the milk arrived.
The meals were quite tasty. 2 different types of eggs benedict, one "regular" bacon and eggs breakfast and 2 orders of crepes for the kids. The food was out in a reasonable amount of time, but the kids were last to receive their food, which, as any restaurant and/or server should know, get the kids their food first!
My order of eggs benedict were served with room temperature hashbrowns...that wasn't too enjoyable.
All-in-all, I don't think I'd go out of my way to return to this cafe, but I do think it's a nice little spot.

I brought my 95 year old friend for her birthday and she loved it! Easy parking, best part was the great male server we had! He was so respectful of her and he made her feel very 'special'. Loved the French cuisine aspect too.

My husband and I had the special where you get an appetizer, dessert, main course and soup for $28 and for $16 extra you get wine with each course. It is excellent value and gives you just the right amount of food to share. The meat on our visit unfortunately was a little tough. The waiter was delightful and the rest of the courses were good especially the mushroom soup and the appetizer platter.

We had an enjoyable time with our friends. We were able to have great conversation. Our dinners were delicious and served at exactly the right temperature. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. We will definitely go back.

We go to Promenade Bistro as often as any restaurant in Winnipeg because the food and service are reliably excellent, prices reasonable and the view of downtown exceptional. It would be great if there were something a little more chocolatey for dessert but everything else is great. I recommend it to people frequently, and will continue to do so. It has never disappointed. The menu doesn't change very often, though.

Great choice for a lovely breakfast or lunch. Varied and interesting menu with an impressive assortment of teas and desserts. The only restaurant in Winnipeg that I've found Floating Island. A pleasant walk over the bridge from The Forks.

Food was excellent for the price, is good for a large group, but only indoors, not outdoors. Tables are too small for a group outdoors. Really need to put a blind on the door in the main area. I had the sun in my eyes the whole time. Very helpful and friendly staff. Wine was excellent but a little pricey. Definitely the best place for breakfast, I actually prefer Promenade's breakfast over lunch or dinner.

We were entertaining friends from out of town and we did have a lovely dinner. We did order bread from the appetizer list (and paid for it because our guests would expect it with their salad). It still bothers me that this is not included with your salad. It is such a little thing that strikes me as your restaurant owners being cheap to charge for bread. Otherwise, we always enjoy the food and ambience.
