    I'm surprised at the changes. I loved the former Palm Room. It was always a place I could go and walk right in. I could get coffee and dessert and not be worried about my wallet. It was expensive but not exhorbitant. This was my first time at the.Oval Room. It's not just decor changes, its everything. The prices have increased substantially (whether it be from COVID or new menu), the service, and the amount of people inside the room. Unfortunately due to perhaps where we were placed (middle of the room) we waited at least 20-30 min before I flagged a waitress down asking for someone to help us. No water, no nothing. She was very friendly and asked if we wanted drinks and then went to find our waiter. He was great, the food was great, the ambience was great. But it has turned into a restaurant, not the former Palm Room lounge. And prices have jumped at least by $10 from the former menu. So I had a hamburger with bacon and cheese it came with fries, and shared a 600ml of house Cabarnet and it was over $60 (before tip etc). Sooo... Perhaps I need to check out the hotel restaurants vs lounges. I miss my Palm Room.

    The food was very good. The staff were friendly. I wound up paying almost $100 (including tip) for brunch which was a bit of a shock. There were just 2 of us and we had two mimosas, 2 cups of coffee and two brunch dishes. The only complaint about the service was that our toast arrived at our table about 15 mins before the rest of our breakfast. It would have been nice to get the food at the same time.

    Visited this restaurant earlier in the year and it was great. This visit was a disappointment. It started with us being seated and not being greeted by our server for more than 10 mins. Service extremely slow even though many empty tables in the restaurant. Appetizer ordered was not as described, and lacking flavor, especially the Maldon salt - there was no salt on the appetizer and when an ingredient is part of the description of the dish, you would expect that to stand out in the dish. Dinners were consistent with the appetizer, lacking flavor, and one dinner was sent back as shrimp were extremely overcooked and rubbery. We were out for two birthdays, and because of the length of time it took to be served, return one dinner and then wait for another to be made, we opted not to order dessert. Very disappointing meal, service and value. So many great restaurants in Winnipeg and this is not one of them.

    My wife and I were celebrating our 39th wedding anniversary and all the staff were very mindful of this in a very pleasant way. Food/drinks were great, only reason for 4 stars was the calamari was warm at best, very tasty and fresh, just not the right temp. Also 4 stars on ambiance simply because we came often to the brasserie in its previous life w/live entertainment...and really missed this no longer being a part of the dining experience. Will certainly be back!

    What an amazing experience! Love the ambiance. Our server was very attentive. Went above and beyond. He noticed the note about my friends birthday in the comments on my reservation and had the words “Happy Birthday” written on our dessert plate! I had completely forgotten that I had wrote it on our reservation, so it was a very pleasant surprise! The food was delicious. We enjoyed the meat loaf, the egg plant, crème brûlée, cheese cake (caramel & cashew) and the fromage ricotta maison. Would highly recommend all of them. We tried a couple of the spritz cocktails - pomegranate and ginger and the French Rose - and both were very tasty! Presentation was also on point. We will definitely be back!

    Dine here one Saturday evening. The service was impeccable and the atmosphere was classy but relaxed. The food was generally very good (as was the food we ordered from the restaurant via room service). One exception would be that the sauce on the gnocchi was extremely oily - maybe we just got the top of the sauce pot but the gnocchi was literally swimming in oil. Other than that the food was excellent.

    We have dined many times, but this time I was not a fan of my meal. I ordered the Poulet Roti Pistou, chicken was very nice but the Farro was very undercooked and the herbed pesto did not taste like fresh herbs were used. This time I just can't give the food a 5 star rating. Cheers

    I associate the Fort Garry Hotel with exceptional food and service, so treated friends from Hong Kong to their wedding dinner there. The table service was lovely, cocktails unique and the ambiance excellent, but the food is expensive, took 45 min. to arrive, and ranged from tasty to disappointing. The cauliflower pakoras ($19), recommended by our server for their flavour and crispy texture, had clearly been plated too long before serving, as they were soggy, and coated in an incongruous sauce (Harissa dill aioli) perhaps better served on the side. The mushroom tartine hors d'oeuvre ($22) was reportedly very good. My companion's 6 oz. filet was beautifully-cooked and served with a cup of fries ($54). All vegetables were à la carte at prices ranging from $12 for potatoes to $18 for Brussels sprouts with house bacon. The single vegan option, Biftek végétalien, was tasty, nicely seared, but my red cabbage 'steak' must have been cut from the 'rump', rendering it unwieldy and difficult to cut. The wedding couple chose salmon and gnocchi, which they described as tasty and filling/heavy, respectively. I don't mind paying top dollar for expertly-prepared high-quality food, but didn't feel this experience measured up. Disappointed and embarrassed that our friends' wedding dinner at this Winnipeg institution of fine dining was so unexceptional.

    The room is lovely and the service professional and attentive. The cauliflower dish was somewhat odd in flavour and the slaw rather tasteless. Pickerel was overcooked (such a delicate fish needs minimal deep frying, and needs to be carefully watched). The steak frites frites should be almost shoestring to be authentic, although the fries served were nicely done and tasty. We would recommend the Grasserie to others with the above caveats.

    Food and service were both excellent. Prices were high but reasonable given the quality of the food and excellence of service. The ambiance suffered in two respects. The dining room was elegant and while my table faced large windows, those windows faced parked cars situated right outside the dining room and thus the view wasn't inspiring. Also, the setting sun illuminated windows across the way and, as luck would have it, the sunlight glared into my wife's eyes. There were drapes on the windows but they couldn't be closed. I ordered a delicious potato gnocchi dish, which I highly recommend, and my wife had a half-rack of lamb ribs, which she devoured. The wine was delicious (petit syrah) and the pour was generous. Bread was wonderful, hummus dip for breadsticks was delicious. Great food!

    It was our waiters first day and although he was very nice, the experience was quite unforgettable. We were there celebrating our daughters 16th birthday. My daughter and her boyfriend had never been before so this was to be a special night. To start, The order came out wrong and my wife’s food came out 10 mins after everyone else’s. The pickerel that my daughter and I ordered was very over cooked and even though they replaced it, even when cooked properly it was bland to a fault. I have been very impressed with the service and food on other occasions,but this particular experience made me consider not going back again. To be honest, this experience ruined the occasion. The only good part was the cake at the end for my daughter.
