Went here for a family b-day. food was tasty, but the portions were extremely small. I almost laughed out loud when the waiter brought out my quinoa salad, it was about 2 tablespoon full.

went to Sydney's for New Year's Eve. First and last time. Noisy to the point of having to yell across the table. Tables are really close together. Not what you would expect for fine dining. Food was good but nothing special, and certainly not worth the fixed price. Worst part was our waiter. From the more we arrived it was... More

This restaurant is definitely overrated. Dined there recently with my wife. We have dined in many fine restaurants in Winnipeg, across Canada, in the U.S. and overseas. This one features attractive interior design with exposed brick walls and large windows in one section. Bread basket was quite ordinary, cauliflower soup and ricotta appetizer quite tasty, medium rare rack of lamb... More

Went on a quiet evening with no reservations, only a few tables were occupied. Lounge seemed quite boisterous from the sound coming around the wall. Very enjoyable meal with beautifully prepared and plated offerings. Cocktails were very good but a little plain given the level of creativity shown by bartenders in other places around Winnipeg. Not quite a match to... More

Very black tie atmosphere....service was excellent, food was even better. All this justified the price, which we found a bit steep, but good to treat ones self now and again. We would go back again for a special occasion.

Food was excellent and service was exceptional. My NY strip loin was prepared perfectly and was very tender. We were with a group of 22 people and not one glitch was noted. All meals were served at the same time and all servers were personally committed to please.

The reviews about Sydney's at the Forks have been mixed, so I was really hoping for a better experience than what others had. We arrived just in time for the last reservation and the fellow who seated and served us was very friendly, polite, and professional. We did the Ciao menu and enjoyed what we ordered, salmon and steak. The... More

We decided to try Sydney's "Eat Winnipeg" menu for our recent anniversary. We always Iike Sydney's, but sometimes find their 5 course menu is a bit too much food. This was just a 3 course menu. Service was pleasant and helpful. I had the BBQ Duck Summer Roll as an appetizer, which was good. My husband had the Grilled Heart... More

We were visiting Winnipeg this July and had decided to dine here as we arrived late on a Friday evening.This was not a good decision.The food is average at best,and there was quite a bit of pressure to order drinks as soon as we sat down.We got the impression that the wait staff were under instructions to push their cocktails....
