Very good with minor issues

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... read more

I hosted a group of about 16 people there for a business meal and everyone raved about what they had. The service was excellent, the staff knowledgable about the menu and wine selections. I had the Osterich Tartar as an appy and it was delicious. For my main course I had the Lamb Shank and it was awesome! Cooked to... More

I was taken to Sydney's by my colleague and his wife. I am glad I didn't have other plans later in the evening because this was one of the most relaxed and enjoyable (and long) dinner's I've had in a long time! We each had the multi-course tasting menu, and we all picked different items so we really got a... More

We went to Sydney's at the Forks for dinner on a Saturday evening. The service was impeccable with our waiter not hovering but he would anticipate our needs. The 5 course meal does have small portions, however they are all plated beautifully and delicious. I had no complaints about the amount of food by the end of the evening. I... More

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

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
