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

In its old incarnation - "La Veille Gare" this restaurant was a Winnipeg standard for upscale romantic ambiance, stellar service and top notch food. Several years ago, after the change in name and, I presume, ownership, I made one visit and wasn't impressed. But this was a favourite occasion location so decided to give it another try. Wow...all the things... More

Elegant, intimate atmosphere with surprisingly reasonably priced food. Excellent wine list. Steak was one of the best I have ever had, much better than 529, and has a variety of good sides included. Bread basket was included. Server was attentive, professional and added to a great evening. I loved that the service was not rushed and we could relax after... More

The food was pricey but decent. The service however was very slow. It was a busy night but the rush seemed to slow down after 9 p.m. Unfortunately the service remained very slow moving. As it was later in the night, my husband and I were anxious to get our bill and get home. It took the waitress a good... More
