Always our “go to” place to celebrate an occasion or just sit and have a relaxing meal. Service and food are always top notch. The hot turkey sandwich was delicious. Nice thick portions of turkey with dressing. The pickerel was nice and lightly battered. Never disappointing here. Have been here lots but still have lots more on the menu to try. Everything always looks so good!!!

We went for a special birthday dinner. When making the booking, you are asked to indicate if it is a special occasion. Not sure why that is asked because there was no acknowledgement of the birthday. The service was very efficient to the point of feeling rushed. We had a 6:30 reservation and were home by 8:00 pm. I had expected we would have more of a leisurely evening, particularly given how pricey the meals are.

Overall the experience and food was mostly great. Husbands Rib Steak had a lot of gristle, we expected the marbled fat but not gristle. Very expensive but we knew that going in. Besides the Rib Steak, everything was perfect for my birthday celebration.

We went to 529 for our anniversary supper. It had been a few years since we were last there. The menu is good with a variety of choices. The only problem is that some of the appetizers and sides are made for sharing. Now this might be good most of the time, but i wanted to try the onion rings since I heard they were great. My wife does not like onions, I really did not need 14 of them. They were very good and the 11 left over came home with us. The service was impeccable. The "tour de boeuff" is quite informative and helps with the decision process. All in all, a good meal, with the steak done as requested. We had roasted cauliflower but the sauce was a bit gritty. Not a fail, but just not silky smooth. The creme brulee was done very well. I do like the fact that you can get a bottle of wine for $34. I am not a wine snob and hate paying substantial money just because I would like a glass with my meal. All in all, it was a good meal, the pricing was fair. The only thing that is detrimental, and this is purely a personal choice, is the decor. I understand it is an old building with a lot of history, but it just does nothing to make me feel good. Thankfully the service from everyone makes you not focus on it.

I took my two young adult children for my son's BD. The food was spectacular - everything we ordred. My daughter was recovering from wisdom teeth removal and they made great suggestions - scallops, french onion soup - that she could enjoy and consume. The sides are large and the three of us could not finish all of them and every single thing was wonderful. The waiter was also very pleasant

Although often thought of as a "steak house", this wonderful place does gourmet food including great Canadian Prairie Prime Grass Fed Beef, creative and fresh seafood, and great side dishes and salads.

My son travelled from Boston, and I from California to be in Winnipeg for a John Denver Tribute concert and happened upon this restaurant on the Trolley Tour.

The concert was outstanding and so was our dinner at 529 Wellington.

My wife and i always look forward to our visits to 529. When making a decision over the sides it was suggested that we have a half order of one if we were ordering three, never new this existed and when ordering for two it was the perfect choice, we will return. Thanks

We went to 529 for my wife's birthday and had the most wonderful server who was enthusiastic and accommodating to our needs. My wife had the seafood trio and was delighted with all three. I myself had the ribsteak with the marrow sauce, and it was fantastic. I am not well versed in all steak houses but only on a handful of occasions have I had a steak at a restaurant and been satisfied that it was better than one I could have made myself at home. You do pay a price for 529, but it lived up to all of our expectations, including a complimentary desert wine for my wife who could not have a desert due to some dietary restrictions. Highly recommended for a special night out, only regret is not getting the server's name to commend him for his wonderful service.

529 Wellington has been my goto place for steaks in Winnipeg. However, lately the steaks have been largely a miss-too thinly cut and not the best texture. I have been opting for fish. I had the fish trio which I enjoyed-especially the cod and the salmon. Not a fan of Ahi tuna. I probably could have asked for two helpings of one of the other fish but I forgot. Otherwise the meal was well presented and served.

Highly recommend for a special occasion. You are offered a "steak /meat" tour to help you make the best selection for you. If you don't like steak, have the black cod, it was phenomenal!
The side dishes are generous. The wine list is so large, that you would be best to ask for recommendations.

It was our 10th wedding anniversary and where we were seated was in a room full of windows not in the beautiful fancy room I'd requested. It was very drafts and cool as it was cool and raining outside. My Ribye was cold, tough to cut and very grisly & chewy. Not worth the $$. Very expensive for what we got to eat. Was told the sides were big but definitely not enough for 2. $180 later we were disappointed. Our first visit was our last.
