Rack of lamb in a bowl in a bed of creamed potato ? This is French cuisine? On the verge of being too cold to eat .Mystery special just so ,so . Service barely adequate. Two couples , both formerly fave restaurant. No more . Used to be good ,now just barely okay .

Truly an awkward experience! Friendly accommodating staff that are okay to talk to. However the owner is off putting, continually peering over, not friendly looking. It's a historic building and it's unfortunate that it has lost the trueness of it's previous owners. The old fashioned dining car is quite interesting and there is an outdoor space.

Had not been to this restaurant for several years possibly decades. We took some people who were visiting from Vancouver. They were looking for a truly Winnipeg experience. We had the smoked Goldeye as an appetizer and it was amazing. Our guests were so pleased with the restaurant choice. The food was spectacular as was the service.

The food is very good but not exceptional. It's more about the experience of dining in an old fashioned train car. Spring, summer and fall visits are best as the train is too cold to visit in the winter. The outdoor patio looks very welcoming.

I brought a group of 18 French students to Resto Gare to taste some traditional French food. Service was excellent as was the food. The Coconut Curry Squash soup was delicious and the students loved the French Onion...and the gnocchi, seafood crepes, steak frites! Don't leave without having a slice of the Maple Sugar Pie -- best I have ever... More

Not many people there and we had a very good meal. Service was efficient and friendly. A little expensive for lunch but nice to be able to visit.

We went for a family dinner and while it was decent, it is, as the title says, nothing to rave about. The service was slow and our waitress wasn't attentive or on the ball. The prime rib special was very fatty and stringy. The other meals were good, but combined with the slow service, I won't be in a hurry... More
