Service was slow. Upon requesting items from the menu we were told on 3 different occasions that they had run out of those items. Not offered water, had to ask, and again had to ask for refills. No bread with dinner. Food cold and bland. Steak over cooked. Thank god for the view. Should I carry on? Food and service... More

My family and I visited Promenade for a Sunday morning brunch at around 1030h. We were seated nicely in a quiet spot. The hostess was very accommodating for a relatively large group (there were 8 of us), giving us a comfortable location. I ordered the petit déjeuner bistro. It was flavourful throughout. I didn't have to worry about my coffee... More

This is a busy little restaurant on the corner overlooking the Provencher Bridge and the soon to be open, Museum of Human Rights. They have a small patio out front but we opted to eat inside. Service was pleasant and unrushed. They have a menu with lots of choices and a few specials, soup de jour, quiche de jour, and... More

Wonderful food; pleasant, knowledgeable wait staff; pleasing decor, and a view to die for - perfect photo op for The Forks, The Canadian Museum for Human Rights, and the Esplanade Louis Riel. It all makes for a very enjoyable dining experience.

From the moment we walked in I knew the night would be perfect! The staff was super friendly - offering service in both french and english. My Hubby and I were seated at a window table over looking the Human Rights Museum and The Forks. We ordered the fixed price tapas for two, with the wine parings. Each of the... More

Dinner with a couple of colleagues while in the 'Peg speaking at a conference - one of them found this spot in St Boniface, just across the bridge. Décor was pretty average. Service OK, though waited a long time to flag server down for the bill when we were done. Apps: Caesar salad was very good. One colleague had the... More

The best part of our Sunday brunch here was the nice view from the corner table we were fortunate to be seated at. The ambiance inside was much more basic than we were expecting from the restaurant's high-falutin' name. My eggs benedict with country ham was tasty enough, though nothing memorable. I can't recall the last time I've received such... More

We do apologize for your experience and the items you listed in your disappointing brunch review. Cold service is something that should not occur and is certainly not what we what. We will address this with all the staff and our next meeting. Please contact me at 204-999-5827 or at shawn@cafeandwine.com because I would like more information. More

Excellent, tasty main dishes, good wine, great bilingual service, easy parking in front if you're lucky or on nearby city streets, scrumptious desserts, and I don't usually have dessert at all. Plus a view of the not-yet-open Museum of Human Rights across the Red River and the lights on the Provencher bridge. Would most assuredly go back next time in... More
