Service was excellent. Had the lamb shank as main course. Lamb was tough and overcooked. My guest had Mussels and the Bison Tourtiere both of which were reported as excellent. I have been a long time fan of this restaurant, and, this was the first time I was disappointed. So, I will go back and continue to enjoy. A little disappointment happens.

The chicken dishes have never disappointed us. I love the Tourtiere as it was a dish that my mother and grandmother made for a special Christmas treat.
My husband had the fish which was prepared with a delicious sauce [ trout ]. La Promenade is one of our favorite restaurants in Winnipeg.

Requested a dish I’ve had 10+ times that is no longer on the menu. They said they could make it anyway, and it was nowhere close to what I had in the past.

Not sure if the chef changed or something but I used to LOVE Promenade!

Loved the ambiance, food was pretty good too. Drinks may be a little expensive, but there are so many other places to go to in the area that we just went with water and could go for a coffee/beer after. Great place for brunch!

Absolutely exquisite except the mashed potato was rather tasteless and disappointing considering the taste of the main dish chicken and vegies and soup.

I had the pork tenderloins which were very tasty (maybe slightly overdone but better that than underdone). The broccoli and creme brûlée were both very good. I was not a fan of the mashed potatoes, though. They were a bit dry and packed down. I would have preferred seasoned roasted potatoes. But otherwise, it was a very pleasant evening. Thank you.

Certain dishes portions were small (poutine). Service was very good though and flavour was also very good. The dressing on the salad was lacking gusto. Tourtiere de bison was excellent.

Great service and location. We sat outside on the patio so there was noise from traffic but the view of the cityscape is worth it all. Cost is a bit much for breakfast.

My Mum and I went to Promenade Café and Wine for brunch on their patio. Our server was quick and very personable - great service - and the ham and Swiss crepes we both had were so delicious! We had our brunch on their expanded patio - which has the most incredible view in the city.
