The ambience of this restaurant, is absolutely beautiful, being on the bridge on the river. Very relaxing & romantic. Nice wine selection. I ordered a Caesar, but they ran out of Vodka. "WHAT" a restaurant of this calibre, out of Vodka. I had my Caesar with Rum. Soup was delicious & so was the salad. That was about it...My $24.00... More

This place COULD be a gold mine! The decor is excellent and being on the bridge on the river--the ombience so romantic. However, when on a Sat. night you are told there is no Vodka and the waitress doesn't know what they have for rum; mix that with other mishaps of inexperience from the waitress, not to mention the food...

We ate supper at Chez Sophie's on a Saturday night. It was quite busy and I am glad we had made a reservation. The food was very tasty. My husband and I both started with the soup. It was served hot and with a side of baguette. The soup was cream of cauliflower and was very good. I actually could... More

I never knew about Chez Sophie until my sister introduced it to me. How did I not know about this place?? The service was excellent and welcoming. The restaurant itself is nestled in a beautiful residential area and though snug it's definitely inviting The food was excellent and their portions are very generous. I will definitely be going back.

I've picked up from Chez Sophie before and so was aware of it's size and limitations. I have to say that people that go to a tiny (probably two dozen chairs across 6-7 tables) converted house and complain about the variety of items and all the other bulls&^t should go to a chain. This is the kind of restaurants that... More

I just came back from lunch at the Bistro. I had the spinach salad with brie cheese which was Fantastic, the serving was so big I couldn't finish it, then again I am not a big eater. My friend had the leek and potatoes soup, she loved it. And my brother had the Cesar salad with chicken breast and he... More

During our stay in Winnipeg, we went twice to "Chez Sophie". It was an outstanding experience. excellent value for money. The location is great on the bridge "Esplanade Riel". The decor is beautiful. They offer excellent meals typically from France. The service is perfect, very friendly in both languages. We really loved it. Don't miss this experience when you are... More

What a delightful place for lunch! We walked out on the bridge and found this light & airy restaurant. We had a nice glass of French Chardonnay along with a very good Ham & Cheese Crepe. My husband had the Sausage Pasta and it was delicious. It was crowded at lunch time and we did not have a reservation; however,... More

Expencive and worth it. There are few menu items that are below $20. The service is the best among the many restaurants of Winnipeg. Amazing Moules et frites, akin to the bistros of Normandy. A perfectly intimate dining experience, but not for the light of wallet.

Unfortunately I did not stay to eat a meal so I cannot comment on that but the staff and hostesses were extremely rude and I will not be returning. I will also be sharing my experience with others. The hostesses ignored me then when I was finally acknowledged they continued to speak around me as though I wasn't there.
