Seafood platter is exceptional; good service with European atmosphere, without the snobbery. Consistently good.

One of our business colleagues brought us to this restaurant for dinner. I immediately wanted to sit in the train car. Our server Curtis was fantastic!!!! The food was good but not the best I've every had. I loved the atmosphere and the small history book that is brought to your table when you sit down. Had a nice time... More

I hadn't been for a few years. Was looking forward to dinner. I had what I picked out what I wanted before I got there. Onion soup and filet. The onion soup tasted ok but all the onions were like they were mashed liked baby food. The steak (filet) was ok but they used too much seasoning salt. The steak... More

A decent restaurant with some excellent food let down by staff trying on tomfoolery - decanting wine not requiring decanting in an attempt to impress. It did not. A starter of duck pate with Fig compote was delicious but accompanying pear & onion was nasty & unnecessary. Chateaubriand was beautifully cooked but hadn't been seasoned, at all. Ridiculous. Get your... More

The host brought out our meals that had been sitting under the warmer for a bit, but were still delicious. We did not see any server after that. after our meal we... More

On Sunday there is a prime rib roast on the menu. You know then when I like it best. There is immense selection though. This is a high end business that only serves the best. Try to eat modestly because at the end a wonderful desert cart will appear. Expect to take home lunch for tomorrow. You will be much... More

Thirty years ago my mother and I lunched at Resto Gare. It was such a unique and pleasing experience, that I always wanted to take my husband there. This week on a vacation visit to Winnipeg, we finally got to enjoy a meal at this charming and excellent bistro. The atmosphere is elegant and charming. The service is impeccable, the... More
