Took 10 min to be sitted and it wasn't busy. Had the mussels in Gino's. However came up with that combination must of had a cold cause they couldn't taste it. Put hard rock crumbled bacon it. Yuk. The shells when picked up crumbled. They did some ok. I thought they went to PEI to get them as it took a long time for our order. Told the waitress and she replaced the mussels. 10 for $12. Had the Ruben, nothing to write home about. Onion soup ok but needs more flavour. Staff very accommodating.

It was a very fun experience to indulge in the 4-course set price dinner. (30 each) We upgraded to include the wine pairing. (18 each) It made it a very leisurely evening. Our server was very friendly and nice. Overall we had a fabulous evening!

My 2 children and I went to Promenade Café and Wine for breakfast on a Sunday. The three of us were given 2 sets of cutlery. The waitress brought our coffee without sugar or spoons. Most of our food was delivered to our table, with the exception of my son's bacon. We had to ask for salt and pepper, as there was none on the table. Upon receiving everything we needed, we enjoyed our well prepared meal. I left the customary 15% tip. My son jokingly said, I paid for the service that everyone else received.

I had not been to this resto for a very long time. Since my last visit they have redecorated/renovated but maintained the same menu elements and the same fabulous service (though obviously different service.) The food quality and taste was great, not something you always see in a menu that does Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. The standouts at our table were the mussels, tourtiere, Coq, Boef Bourguinon. Tacky I know but we all tasted everything! The burger was kind of out of place in this company.

Décor is pleasant and rustic at the same time. There are two service areas. There is a view of the Human Rights Museum, Bridge, and River. Though that also means the evening sun shines into the room at times. Not a problem there were blinds, and the A/C kept it comfortable.

A word or two on Price. The online menu is out of date, its about 10% low. The place is not cheap, but is on par with other restaurants I have reviewed in Winnipeg. For those looking for a different experience, they do a Prix Fixe menu on most nights for about 3/4's of what a meal off menu would cost. It is chefs choice and changes.

House wine was very drinkable and priced in line. The Prix Fixe offers the option of Wine Pairings (recommended) for each dish at $18 per person total.

But to end this review I go back to the service. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left (a long time later) the service was wonderful and friendly. Definitely going back!

I know there are a lot of other dishes you could get here. But we wanted poutine, so that's what we ordered.

We so enjoyed the poutine here -- great fries, gravy, and meat. It was so good that we went back for seconds and thirds!

Staff is gracious and accommodating. Will definitely return when we are in the area.
