“So-so food and slow service”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

We went with a group of six for dinner in June. We were seated promptly and had our water and beverages fairly quickly. The experience went downhill from there. It took forever to get our food and one of the steaks was burned around the edges and was inedible.Our waiter never came by to ask if we liked our meals so we asked the bus person to fetch him so that we could get a replacement. It took so long to get the new steak that the rest of us were half way through our meals when it arrived. The rest of our meals were just OK and one expects more at a self proclaimed fine dining establishment.

“Don't miss it!”
Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

We recently were in Winnipeg and the Gare was recommended to us. We had five in our party and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Everyone's meal was delicious. Reminds you of the good French Canadian food experiences you may have had in the past or while visiting PQ. I had French relatives so in days gone by had good food at their parties. The decor is cozy comfortable they have one room in an old train car and there is a lovely outdoor patio where they have jazz some evenings.

“Very Nice Dining Experience”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

We visited Resto Gare to celebrate an anniversary and were very pleased with our experience. We had made reservations and were greeted and shown to our seats in a timely fashion. The dining choices were outstanding and both chose the Filet Mignon. Our steaks were done perfectly and were exceptional! We did not opt for dessert however the cart travelled by us on numerous occasions and looked fantastic. We will certainly return based on the quality of food, level of service and overall experience.

“Seafood Crepes”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

If the charming atmosphere and the fresh locally sourced food aren't enough to draw you in for a visit, do it for a taste of the amazing seafood crepes (Crepes Fruit de Mer). Delicious.
