Bailey's Restaurant and Lounge
What a wonderful way to spend evenings together with friends, or to unwind after a busy day of work while traveling in the Winnipeg area. An atmosphere rich in history, friendly service, sumptuous appetizers and entrees, fine wines and spirits await you. Whether it be your business luncheon or dinner, pre theatre reservations for dinner early, a special occasion to celebrate, or simply a dinner out on the town, make it Baileys.
Our menu is continental and very diverse. Features include top steaks from our Char Broiler, seafood, and specialties such as our signature rack of lamb. For those with a light appetite, there are many lighter fares to be enjoyed in the more casual setting of our lounge.
We had the whole restaurant to ourselves. An early October storm kept less committed diners away. It was a perfect evening.
We have been going to Baileys since 1973 as this was the first place our parents got to meet each other prior to our wedding in 1974. Back then it was called Olivers. Since then, we have returned every year at least once or twice a year. It is a special place with special people working their.
Everything was fantastic - thoroughly enjoyable our anniversary dinner.
Celebrated a birthday for a friend from Ottawa. All the meals were delicious. Service was great as usual. Always a special place to celebrate any event.
Wasn't extremely busy at the time of our experience, so this review must be taken accordingly. Everything was more than acceptable and I stand by saying this restaurant should be considered as one of the best in the city!
Great atmosphere and superb service. The prime rib was quite chewy. Texas Roadhouse still has the best at half the price.
Not sure why people go to the Keg and sit around waiting for a table when you have this quality of a restaurant and service and food at the same level or higher.
Marco mad our anniversary special
Excellent food with great friendly service. Quiet on a Monday night so excellent for visiting with our guests. We visit this restaurant every few months and have never had a bad experience.
Superb surroundings, delightful decor, delicious food, wonderful ambience, very helpful staff and fantastic cocktails! Need I say more.....very highly recommended.
Absolutely delicious and wonderful as usual!
We were here for our anniversary (again). The dinner was excellent as usual with very good service. We were one of only three occupied tables however so would expect good service and a quiet atmosphere. Pricey of course but you can pretty much count on it to be as good as any restaurant and better than most. Would definitely recommend with a caveat about the price.
The wait staff was awesome. The food was just okay. A little underwhelming.
Thank you to our server Brad. Showed us around, treated us like royalty. Made our anniversary an unforgettable experience! Look forward to coming back for next years.
Great service and atmosphere. Food was worth the price. Very reasonably priced.
Excellent service! Excellent food!
Our waiter (Brad) was amazing! Super funny and great with our kids. We will be back! :)
Excellent meal, previous experience not good (ribs) but great this time. Server was courteous and friendly. Fried shrimp meal was very good value and everything was served hot (important).
Our third year in a row at this Mother's Day brunch. Excellent selection of food that everyone expects at such an occasion. Great attentive service. Most important is that it makes my wife happy. Highly recommended by our family as we all leave satisfied.
The staff and service was fantastic. They treated us with great respect and kindness . The staff was very knowledgeable and experienced
We will definitely be back to celebrate another special occasion
Thank goodness they have installed a lift to the second floor. Good food
We celebrate our anniversary every year with Baileys. They never fail to exceed our expectations. The food, service and atmosphere are exceptional.
The experience was great, although our service was very loud when speaking.
It’s obvious that regulars are catered too which is understandable but not acceptable when it comes at the expense of others.
Our server was excellent, attentive but not intrusive. Very personable, which added to the enjoyment of our evening. I had beef medallions, which were melt in your mouth tender and very flavorful. My friend had chicken, which was also excellent. Certainly will return.
I've lived in Wpg my whole life and never visited until last weekend. I will definitely be back! My husband and I enjoyed everything from the atmosphere, to the friendly staff and the amazing food!
Our waiter Marco kept our table laughing, great personality!!!
Wonderful evening out, delicious meal, great wine and the dessert was to die for! One our city’s restaurant treasures. Not many restaurants left where one can dress up to dine!
We ate in the lounge. And it was wonderful we had great service. The food was wonderful... Nice and quick
First off the decor is beautiful it is all old school wood inside very refine, your greeted as soon as you enter , the service is above and beyond in my opinion. I took my mom out for a pre show dinner, she had the calamari for appetizer and Salmon for main with a ceasar she’s 66 and picky and she said it was the best meal out she’s ever had so that’s saying a lot. I myself had the 10oz New Year strip for main and scallops for appetizer with a beer that I wish I remembered the name of because it was crisp full and refreshing, went great with the steak. I asked for my steak to be done medium and it was. I heard the ladies the table over asking for well done and I didn’t hear a complaint so they cook the steak as you ask. We were greeted by Brad and this young lady was our waitress and I don’t remember her name which is a shame because she was very pleasant, not pushy and very approachable. It was busy that night because there were a lot of things going on downtown so a reservation is a must for the restaurant. They do have a beautiful full service lounge downstairs as well. The price was on par with other steakhouse type restaurants. Excellent environment. I’d say it’s a great restaurant for a date or a bday. Overall it was a fantastic dinner and we saw El Divo at concert Hall after which was nice and close by.
What an excellent evening
Brad is our favorite server - so naturally friendly and open! And best steak EVER!
Always good food and great service at Bailey's. Surprisingly quiet for lunch with my wife on Valentine's Day.
Took my wife for a birthday dinner. Wanted to try Baileys as it had been many years since I had last been there.
For a Friday evening at 6 pm there was barely anyone in the upper level. I did find the lighting to be too dim and had to use my phone so I could see the menu. Our waitress Jennifer was very good and helped just the right amount, not hovering and not ignoring. I started with a whisky sour that seemed watered down, the appetizers were ok ( Calamari and Escargot). I had the sampler plate with Chicken Souvlaki, ribs and lamb chops. The lamb was very under seasoned in my opinion.
All in all a nice dinner, but not the same from what I remember
Great food, great service, wonderful ambience, very enjoyable place to have a good meal with friends or with someone special. Had the prime rib and it was delicious. The rolls served with the Mal were excellent. The service was beyond great. Very highly recommended.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Especially if you taking her out for birthday anniversary. The staff attend to great. The food is great and taste all flavours of food. The old century wood is beautiful and the low lighting adds romantic setting. The manager is great. The only thing I would suggest is that since was my first time ther after I did coat check my didn’t know if I am there go upstairs or not. I was very please. We had reservation at 8 and left after 11pm and was never rushed was allowed to take time and eat and have conversation.
New Year’s Eve. Great friends. Great food. Great service
Food was disappointing - way too much salad dressing / gross croutons - instead of proactively offering a discount, server instead launched into a lengthy 'explanation' (i.e EXCUSE) as to 'why' the food wasn't as expected. I had to ask for a discount. This is TWO EXPERIENCES IN A ROW where Bailey's has not been up to par. 3 strikes and you're out Bailey's!
The service was the best it could be. But there was 1 servicer for the entire up stairs? For lunch? In December? I couldn’t believe it. The food was ok, but overshadowed by the 2 hours we were there!
Had a wonderful evening. First time at Bailey's it would have been nice to have a greeter or proper signage on the main floor. We weren't made to feel welcome at entrance. Although not particular to us, there seems to be a lack of facilities for the disabled, ie stairs but no lift or ramp obvious.
Upon making the second level, we were welcomed and greeted and service was excellent.
A secure coat check, rather than an open rack, would have been nice. This is Winnipeg, coats and security are important concerns.
Staff Christmas Party
Overall the experience was very pleasant, lovely atmosphere, having missed the busy hour. Service and the food was good. The filet mignon was delicious but a bit too salty, the lobster a wee bit overcooked and the dinner salad kind of ordinary. Having said that we enjoyed 'The Feast'. The chocolate drizzle cake was just right - not too sweet & very chocolatey.
