    The Oval Room has fast become my favourite place to dine and have drinks. Beautiful atmosphere, great selection of fabulous foods and wines, and wonderful service. Consistent excellence all around. I understand that the live music has returned and I look forward to hearing some local talent. Well done, all.

    I associate the Fort Garry Hotel with exceptional food and service, so treated friends from Hong Kong to their wedding dinner there. The table service was lovely, cocktails unique and the ambiance excellent, but the food is expensive, took 45 min. to arrive, and ranged from tasty to disappointing. The cauliflower pakoras ($19), recommended by our server for their flavour and crispy texture, had clearly been plated too long before serving, as they were soggy, and coated in an incongruous sauce (Harissa dill aioli) perhaps better served on the side. The mushroom tartine hors d'oeuvre ($22) was reportedly very good. My companion's 6 oz. filet was beautifully-cooked and served with a cup of fries ($54). All vegetables were à la carte at prices ranging from $12 for potatoes to $18 for Brussels sprouts with house bacon. The single vegan option, Biftek végétalien, was tasty, nicely seared, but my red cabbage 'steak' must have been cut from the 'rump', rendering it unwieldy and difficult to cut. The wedding couple chose salmon and gnocchi, which they described as tasty and filling/heavy, respectively. I don't mind paying top dollar for expertly-prepared high-quality food, but didn't feel this experience measured up. Disappointed and embarrassed that our friends' wedding dinner at this Winnipeg institution of fine dining was so unexceptional.

    The room is lovely and the service professional and attentive. The cauliflower dish was somewhat odd in flavour and the slaw rather tasteless. Pickerel was overcooked (such a delicate fish needs minimal deep frying, and needs to be carefully watched). The steak frites frites should be almost shoestring to be authentic, although the fries served were nicely done and tasty. We would recommend the Grasserie to others with the above caveats.

    Food and service were both excellent. Prices were high but reasonable given the quality of the food and excellence of service. The ambiance suffered in two respects. The dining room was elegant and while my table faced large windows, those windows faced parked cars situated right outside the dining room and thus the view wasn't inspiring. Also, the setting sun illuminated windows across the way and, as luck would have it, the sunlight glared into my wife's eyes. There were drapes on the windows but they couldn't be closed. I ordered a delicious potato gnocchi dish, which I highly recommend, and my wife had a half-rack of lamb ribs, which she devoured. The wine was delicious (petit syrah) and the pour was generous. Bread was wonderful, hummus dip for breadsticks was delicious. Great food!

    It was our waiters first day and although he was very nice, the experience was quite unforgettable. We were there celebrating our daughters 16th birthday. My daughter and her boyfriend had never been before so this was to be a special night. To start, The order came out wrong and my wife’s food came out 10 mins after everyone else’s. The pickerel that my daughter and I ordered was very over cooked and even though they replaced it, even when cooked properly it was bland to a fault. I have been very impressed with the service and food on other occasions,but this particular experience made me consider not going back again. To be honest, this experience ruined the occasion. The only good part was the cake at the end for my daughter.

    Came for brunch which was delicious; however, felt very rushed by the server. Barely sat down before asked what we wanted. Toast arrived immediately and had to ask her to keep it warm while we waited for the remainder of our meal.

    Everything was great and we had amazing service. However, the salami plate was pretty overpriced for what we got. Other than that, the cheese plate was great, the mussels were some of the best I’ve ever had, and the dessert was excellent. Excellent cocktails too!

    Food was very nicely presented and great tasting. The service however, was really lacking. Our server seemed very nervous and basically ran around the whole evening. The guys delivering the food to the table were inexperienced and seemed to be untrained. Unfortunate for such a high end restaurant.

    My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. The experience was good until we started to order our food. I ordered the lobster Mac and cheese they didn’t have any. Chose the mussels they didn’t have that either. The server was unaware that these items were unavailable. I ended up having the French onion soup which was no great shake. I had plenty of room for dessert, so I ordered creme brûlée and wouldn’t you know it that they didn’t have any. Not sure you can run a restaurant with a limited menu that they can’t fulfill. Great place for cocktails and an appetizer.

    The piano is gone. It is so sad as that was really a part of the experience of the Oval (Palm) room. I have been coming here for years and the piano player not being there is very disappointing. The food was good, but honestly, chickpeas are cheap, at $24 dollars for the vegetarian cabbage steak, there could have been more. There were literally 12 (yes I counted) chickpeas on the dish. Tasty, but the price point for what I received was pretty shocking. The drink menu - loved it. That is a really great change. The room itself is stunning; however very hard to navigate as the tables are VERY close together. I almost bumped someone in the head with my female upper anatomy trying to go to the washroom. The service was outstanding. Cannot say enough about our server, I never remember the names, but amazing lady. I come back here every year to celebrate the birthday of a friend I lost 8 years ago and for that reason, I will keep coming back. I hope next year on April 22 to see a piano somewhere playing ambient music and maybe a few more Vegan/Vegetarian option. At the very least, to get more than 12 chickpeas if nothing has been added to the menu.

    My family and I came here yesterday for Easter brunch and we were all left a little disappointed. We sat at our table for 10 minutes before anyone came over to greet us even though there were only 6 tables in the whole restaurant. Finally, someone came over but they didn’t end up being our server and it wasn’t until the third person came over did we realize that was our server. Our server was nice enough but never told us her name and it wasn’t until after we paid the bill and tipped her did she try and chat with us. The food was mediocre at best. For the prices they charge (and the fact that this is a Fort Garry hotel restaurant) I expected a lot more. If you’re looking for a great brunch place in the city I would skip the Oval Room and go somewhere else like Clementine or Juneberry. Overall, a disappointing experience.

Our server Paul, was very friendly, pleasant and attentive. Service was prompt. The hostess Pauline was super friendly and couldn’t have done anything more to make it a special evening for us! A super nice lady! The entertainment was a nice touch! It was great to finally get out and enjoy an evening socialising! Definitely will return and try a few different items.
