We arrived expecting something wonderful and we weren’t disappointed. We arrived without reservations and yet were warmly greeted and seated. The menu looked interesting and appetizing. Fluids were efficiently topped off and food was wonderful. We’d go back in a flash, if only we lived closer. Thanks for a great experience for a couple hungry tourists.

I can't say enough about this fabulous restaurant. The food is seriously the best I've had in Winnipeg. The service was fabulous and Scot was so understanding and accommodating when I called twice to delay our reservations due to traffic conditions. The coffee was so good I had 4 cups! And the friend I was with thought the house Red... More

We decided on Fusion Grill for our anniversary after reading the rave reviews, so had high expectations. The menu was appealing, the write ups on the chef/owner and local ingredients, it was close to home, it all sounded and looked perfect.

We dined at fusion grill for the first time last evening. This quaint dining room offered a diverse menu and attentive staff. Albeit a small room the small was used efficiently and decorated well.

Dined at Fusion Grill with much anticipation. We've always been huge fans of FG. Started with the pickerel cheeks, mussels and samosas. The samosas were great. The had a nice flavour but weren't overpowered by the seasoning. For mains we had the chicken and the Northern Pike. The chicken piccata came with pea gnocchi and was in white wine, butter,... More
