We celebrated an anniversary with lunch at 529: a beautiful setting, attentive and personable staff, exquisite food. It was a wonderful first-time experience that will be the beginning of future dining experiences.

I would recommend 529 Wellington, but with several caveats. It's definitely a unique restaurant, in Winnipeg. The ambience was very nice, quiet and intimate. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly.

Our food wasn't the greatest for what we paid though. The steak was definitely great but it felt like it was forgotten about for a bit, as it was slightly burnt. The lobster tail I ordered was also very tough and difficult to cut and bite into. Both the steak and lobster tail were quite overcooked. For the price I was kind of expecting a bit nicer quality in the food.

Overall it was a nice and unique restaurant experience, but the food wasn't as great as we were hoping for the high price point that you pay.

Server was fun and informative. Ambience is a classic style surrounding. If you are looking for a experience I recommend you take a peek. If you are looking for fine dining remember this is a steak house. Not as formal as it once was more of an overpriced keg now without the TVs. Still worth going once for the building and service alone.

The food and ambience were as promised. Uncomplicated, basic food with high quality ingredients. Not fancy. The price was significantly higher than warranted. Winnipeg has a number of equally enjoyable restaurants where the food is a fraction of the cost.

Service was amazing our waiter was exceptional. Value for money though I’m not too sure if any steak can be worth so much money. I think you can get something just as enjoyable at other steakhouses BUT if you want to spend the money enjoy the atmosphere and experience with wonderful staff I say it’s worth a special occasion

529 is always outstanding. The appetizers are outstanding. The french onion soup is world class. The steaks are amazing and even the simple food is unbelievable (the burger and fries for lunch really can't be beat). I really like the smoked fish appetizer. It's fresh, tasty and a must try if you are visiting for the first time.

Impeccable service and sumptuous food. It is my husband’s birthday and made some requests through OpenTable and everything was addressed properly even without informing our server. Our first time and will definitely be back.

Thank you for the wonderful birthday dinner! You guys are all awesome!

Came here for our 22nd anniversary! We are not normally High end diners, so the extra touches of service were very impressive. Small eaters, so we shared a 14oz steak, and with appetizer and side, we were well filled! Thanks for helping make our day special!

Me and my husband went for our anniversary dinner . We are vegetarian and they didn’t have much options except salads . I think they should have more vegetarian options such as veggie burger , pastas etc. The prices were too high for small portion of food

I’ve eaten there many times and this visit just wasn’t as good as usual. I have no doubt our next visit will be perfect. The brussel sprouts were quite undercooked and my steak wasn’t as tender and flavourful as they generally are at 529. This place is consistent so we will certainly go back knowing that this was likely just a ‘one off’.

It is the most special place and a gem of Winnipeg. Every single bite of food was unreal! Staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. They accomodated my request for vegetarian and I got a surprise Veg dinner which was sooo delicious. My better half enjoyed the steak which she absolutely enjoyed like never before.

The experience was well worth it. My husband and I are celebrating our 11th anniversary and having dinner at 529 made it very special for us. From the greeter who took our jackets, to our waiter and his professionalism and knowledge, to the chef who prepared our sumptuous meal, it was an awesome experience!

529 Wellington will forever be my boyfriend and mine’s choice to celebrate our anniversary at. The service, the building, the food... it has never disappointed. Our waiter, Chris M, was soft spoken, friendly, and very knowledgeable. As someone who eats steak a handful of times a year, I relied heavily on his descriptions of their different types of cuts and how each are prepared, and beyond that, what wine would pair well with our meal.

Where other places who also serve great steak simply say, “Well, you can drink whatever you want. It’s your meal,” the little detail of being knowledgeable about wines stands out to me. It elevated the dining experience.

While we’ll definitely be back next year in January, I think we’ll be heading back sooner than that.

I had dinner with my wife and a freind to celebrate him getting fired. Everything on the menu looks great so its hard to decide. We had the meat trio and the fish trio. A good way to taste a few things off the menu. Fantastic wine list, service and environment to dine in. I only give it four stars because the menu lacks creativity and its abit overpriced. Great food overall.

The service is always excellent. The food was not up to par this time. The French Onion Soup was too thick to eat and tasted like a thick gravy. The steak was cooked well but lacked a wow factor and my lobster tail was dry and overcooked. Disappointing evening for my husbands birthday.

We celebrated our anniversary at 529 Wellington. It was an wonderful and romantic evening. Everyone involved with making our evening special did an incredible job. The bartender was more than helpful with the extensive drink menu and our waiter helped us decide on the perfect steak and accompaniments. It was a beautiful place to celebrate and we most definitely will be back!
