We went for a family dinner and while it was decent, it is, as the title says, nothing to rave about. The service was slow and our waitress wasn't attentive or on the ball. The prime rib special was very fatty and stringy. The other meals were good, but combined with the slow service, I won't be in a hurry... More

In its old incarnation - "La Veille Gare" this restaurant was a Winnipeg standard for upscale romantic ambiance, stellar service and top notch food. Several years ago, after the change in name and, I presume, ownership, I made one visit and wasn't impressed. But this was a favourite occasion location so decided to give it another try. Wow...all the things... More

Elegant, intimate atmosphere with surprisingly reasonably priced food. Excellent wine list. Steak was one of the best I have ever had, much better than 529, and has a variety of good sides included. Bread basket was included. Server was attentive, professional and added to a great evening. I loved that the service was not rushed and we could relax after... More

The food was pricey but decent. The service however was very slow. It was a busy night but the rush seemed to slow down after 9 p.m. Unfortunately the service remained very slow moving. As it was later in the night, my husband and I were anxious to get our bill and get home. It took the waitress a good... More

Dining room was festively decorated for Christmas and the fire place was ablaze. Server, Matt was very attentive and our service was quick considering how busy the restaurant was. Warm bread slices and oil/balsamic were served with our Caesar salads. Salad wasn't as good as I remembered but it was okay. Big enough to share. Dinner specials offered more choices.... More

Our group of former co-workers has been getting together for a Christmas dinner for over 30 years. This year we chose Resto Gare, as the last time we had dinner at the former La Vielle Gare was probably 20 years ago. We were not disappointed! Our meals were absolutely delicious. I shared the Seafood for 2 dinner with another friend... More

We have been to Resto Gare many times over the years. It is always a nice experience. The food is high quality but not mind blowing and the service is good.

The menu is varied and interesting. The wine was pleasant and worked with our meal. The special I had was disappointing. The fish was overcooked and the stuffing and sauce was too thick and strong for the delicate fish I had ordered. My other companions had varying experience, each ordering something different. The duck confit was apparently done very well.... More

We were a small group who went here for a work lunch. From start to finish was 2.5 hours and that did not include dessert. The waiter was pleasant, but the service was horrible. It seems that way in other reviews too. They need to have more staff on in peak times. Was over 45 minutes for our meals. They... More
