Being that our reservation was on Monday November 11th, the restaurant was very quite. Service was great as there were only three other tables occupied in our area. Would recommend and visit again!

We’ve always tried to go some place special for our anniversary -and Winnipeg does indeed have some wonderful venues! By far the finest dining experience we’ve enjoyed was this year at The Gates.
Perfect food. Perfect service. Simply lovely decor. Dining quality at its best.

The only reason I would not give this restaurant 5 stars for everything is because the floor and cubicles in the washroom were dirty.

The Gates offers a very quaint environment in a beautiful, sprawling ranch-house overlooking fields and pastures with horses. The food is good, especially the chocolate treats and the made-to-order items like omelettes and crepes. Some of the buffet-dishes are good but not gourmet-level, like the turkey pot-pie and salmon-cakes, but the prime rib always impresses.

First of all the Onion Soup, which we looked forward to, was simply awful.
The serving person was courteous and informative, but considering how few in number your customers were, the service was very slow. To make matters worse, our four out of town guests sat and watched a couple of people who arrived after us receive service before we did.

All in all, a disappointment for an evening meal that stood us close to $600.00 for our four non Winnipegers whom I had encouraged to visit the Gates.

Restaurant was not crowded so we felt that we had a beautiful dining space to ourselves.
6 of the 7 meals were excellent; the 7th was a New York steak which was a definite disappointment.

Love the place and the taste of food is worth it for the price. I reserved a dinner for my birthday and at the end of the dinner the lady who serves us brought a dessert treat.

Next time we will try their brunch buffet.

We were entertaining guests from abroad and they very much enjoyed the experience. Given the power problems everywhere we were able to have a very good Thanksgiving meal. Portions were good and food was terrific.

Brunch with family was very enjoyable. Food was delicious and hot and replenished frequently. My only comment is the beef roast should have been cooked to more med than med-rare. Service was exceptional!! Highly recommend it

I absolutely love going to the gates! The service is always spectacular, the food is incredible and the outdoor grounds are always well manicured and beautiful. I strongly feel that the inside decor could use a few updates though. It doesn’t affect my love for being there but I could see how many people may view it as outdated and choose to frequent other newer and hipper restaurants and venues.

We ate in the lounge. The service was excellent and the food very good. The low rating on the overall value was because of the portion size. We ordered a hot beef sand and the fish and chips. The hot beef was a very generous portion but the Gus and chips had just 1 quite small pickerel fillet. It was very tasty but not enough for a meal.

Ordered chicken veg soup had two chunks of chicken not even 1/4 inch and a sprinkle of corn bits and 2 slices of mushrooms cost $7 I should of just opened a can of Campbell’s soup I would have enjoyed it more.
I was very disappointed and would have been embarrassed to serve it to customers.
On another note my daughter had a great salad

My wife and I took her mother here for her birthday and it was all our first time here. The first thing you’ll notice is that the property and surrounding land is beautiful.

We came for an early dinner on a Wednesday so it was very quiet in the restaurant. I started with scallops which were cooked perfectly and had a very tasty aioli.

For our entree’s I had the beef tenderloin, my wife had pork tenderloin and my mother in law had a chicken linguini. My beef was cooked perfectly medium rare and was awesomely seasoned. The accompanying vegetables were great and I had an order of asparagus with bernaise. The bernaise was thicker than I expected but still had good flavour. My wife’s pork was filled with apples and other things and wrapped in prosciutto. She said it was the best one of the best pork dishes she had. Lastly my mother in law really enjoyed her pasta

We would all come back to The Gates for a special occasion in the future.

Enjoyed it very much but I found the service overall for fine dining was not as expected. And by that as no one ever came by to top off our wine or ask if we wanted another bottle.
We enjoyed the experience overall and would come back but I think the level of attention was not what we've experienced at other fine dining locations.

Very good with one exception, our steak was ordered medium rare and delivered medium well. Although not cooked as requested it was still very good. Our server Casey was very good.
Why do you ask if there is a special occasion for the reservation?

We went for a special lunch when a friend was visiting. We both enjoyed very much. Food and service was excellent and you can’t beat the ambiance of The Gates. She is from Ottawa and was amazed at the value for cost. I had been before and will certainly go again.

While our lunch experience was most enjoyable we were rather surprised at the condition of the upper floor. We went up to use the wash room and found two of the stalls out of commission. While we were up there we had a little look around and found paint and plaster chipping of the walls and the leather seats of several of the chairs in the smaller dining rooms ripped and in very poor condition. If you're booking a room for an occasion you might want to check it out first.

Couldn’t ask for a better place to take that special someone.
The services is beyond outstanding. Not sure what you feel like having for a drink? The bar staff is full of fantastic recommendations.
Want something note quote on the menu?
The chef will do everything he can to make it just how you like it.

Delicious food as well as a large variety. Prime rib was outstanding and it was nice to have au jus as well as peppercorn gravy to go with it. Crepes were also great as there was a variety of fillings and sauces.

Thanks so much, Wendy! We spend a lot of time and energy setting up our brunch every week so it is really nice to hear that you enjoyed it! We try to change it up slightly every week so that you can come regularly and not get bored of the same fare. Thank you for the support!! Ray
