I treated my sweetheart to a surprise dinner at Resto Gare for Valentines in February. I booked a few weeks in advance, getting the last 7pm slot. The exterior of the building is an old train, and upon arriving my fiancee lit up with excitement. “We’re going here?” She almost screamed with delight.

Upon entry we were greeted by a very courteous hostess, who offered to take our coats. Our waiter was with us after only a moment’s notice and gave us the chef’s special as well as a sample of white wine.

The ambiance is warm, and a little luxurious, but still very inviting. The service was excellent and the food was incredible. Our waiter was extremely attentive and we were very happy with our evening.

Resto Gare is definitely one of my favourite restaurants in Winnipeg, and I will definitely be coming back.
