Exceptional service from the waitress, sorry we did not get her name. Food was fantastic. This was our first visit and we will definitely return. The views of the Forks are nice. Ask for a window seat when you reserve.

Whenever we go here for breakfast, it’s always Emily that takes care of us. She is professional, efficient and very personable. That along with very good food at a fair price makes it all a winning combination. Try the jams - they are fantastic. Highly recommended overall.

We were visiting from North Dakota to see the Canadian Museum of Human Rights. Promenade was within easy walking distance and had a great reputation online. We made reservations for a late lunch after our museum visit and were not disappointed. Great menu & great food in a cozy, friendly environment. Thank you, Promenade, for making our visit to Winnipeg even more memorable.

Overall our experience was very pleasant. The mussels were outstanding and both meals very good.
Two issues ,I mentioned on open table that it is a birthday celebration.I realize there were only two of us but we arrived at 6 pm to an almost empty restaurant.The hostess wanted to seat us right by the door ?not acceptable.She seemed upset but asked someone and we then sat two tables further inside.
Also we each had a glass of St.Margerita Pino Grigio .As this is a very inexpensive wine we were shocked at the $15 price for 6 ounces.We did not notice price and certainly would not order wine there again.
The waitress was very nice and helpful in choosing our dishes.

Personally this was my second visit, 1st lunch. I was hoping for better. Ordered the club house, it was fine, fries were very soggy. One of the servers asked if there was something wrong with them, to which I replied that they were soggy. She said she'd see about getting us a credit on our bill. Our original server showed up a little later with a new order of fries. We quickly declined as we never asked for them. Got our bill, no credit. Also note that the wine prices are OUTRAGEOUSLY high. A 2oz pour of a California wine for $8, is ridiculous.

The food was absolutely delicious. Our table had Nutella/strawberry crepe, berry compote crepe, French toast and an omelette (as a gluten free/celiac safe option). The food came fast and was phenomenal. Highly recommend.

One of my favourite restaurants. Food is good. Am a vegetarian so additional vegetarian dishes would be welcomed by me, although they already have enough to keep me coming back.

Food and service was very good. The table we had was in a corner and it felt like we were squished into a very small space. There wasn’t even enough room to drape my coat over the back of the chair.

The ambience was comfortable. The room temperature a little chilly, but the service was warm and cheerful. The bison burger and fries were cooked to our liking albeit a bit over salted. Crispy lettuce and tomatoes with freshbun were a big bonus.

I go to Promenade Café quite often especially with business associates. Very good food - always friendly and professional service - price is in line with the type of restaurant - would recommend as a very good spot for business lunch. Could be a little tight on time for those wishing to dine within their lunch hour but again I choose this restaurant because of quality.

We had dinner on Feb 16 with friends who had never been to the Bistro. As always, the service and food at Promenade was excellent. I had the bison tourtiere pie-fabulous! And thank you for not skimping on the gravy :)!
My husband and I dine out frequently and Promenade is definitely in my top 3!
Kind regards, April Forgo

We always enjoy our dinners at Promenade Café and Wine and have recommended it to others. It has become our go to place for special couple occasions. I would give it an overall 4 stars - it has great ambiance with its large windows overlooking an always picturesque view, no matter the season. Service is professional and prompt, the food is chef inspired and it is a quiet intimate space. Thumbs up!

Hi there, we had a table of four for a Tuesday night. Our server was outstanding and the atmosphere was great. The kitchen was off a bit this evening. On one hand, they were kind enough to make a chicken club from the lunch menu for dinner which was greatly appreciated. On the other hand, the mandolin shoestring cut frites for the Poutine was way overcooked and the ones on the club sandwich platter were splinters. The waitress did mention they were like hickory sticks and if that was the intent with the preparation then fresh oil and a keen eye is required. I would definitely go back and give this another shot as anything can happen in a busy kitchen. Looking forward to giving it another shot in the near future.
