If you want to cap off the week with a fancy dinner of prime grade steaks and cold martinis, you should check out Hy’s Steakhouse and Cocktail Bar. 

Locals have loved its simple but excellent service, fine food selection, and premier steak for over 65 years. It is one of the famous steakhouses that redefined restaurants in Canada.

Customers tell us that what they love about this restaurant is its prime grade steaks and the sumptuous dishes on the menu. Although it’s a bit pricey, we think what you pay is worth it. 

It has a top-tier menu, from appetizers to prime steak selections and tableside dishes. Its steak is made from specially selected Prime Grade beef and is aged for a minimum of 28 days. 

Moreover, Hy’s has a team of trained servers who prepare the classic dishes. More than good food, customers love the culinary theatre experience. 

Its ambience is also one of its assets, as customers get transported to a luxurious atmosphere when dining. Its interior has dark mahogany, rich colours, and textures, and intimate lighting brings out the elegant vibe that we enjoyed. 

Another great thing about this restaurant is its private dining rooms for all types of business and social functions. Aside from that, you can also enjoy happy hour every day and get discounts for sharing & snacking options. 

When it comes to convenience, the restaurant is open every day and has extended hours from Friday to Saturday. Moreover, its website also features calendar booking through OpenTable, which helps customers reserve a table quickly. 

On top of that, it is also accessible to customers by providing equitable service for diverse groups. This restaurant accommodates persons with disabilities, the use of assistive devices, service animals, support persons, and any unique needs. 

Pros

  • Luxurious ambience
  • Prime steak selections
  • Team of trained chefs and servers

Customer reviews

Excellent service

“ One of the most spectacular restaurants I’ve visited in Winnipeg Downtown. The service is just incredible, all the staff members from the hosts to the waiters were amazing.

And the food was just brilliant. Tried two different types of steaks along with their oysters and everything was perfect.

Absolutely no complaints at all. It is a little pricey, but well worth it. Highly recommend. “ – Ghalib Zamir ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐, Google Reviews

High-quality food selection

“ Fantastic service and the food was all very flavorful and delicious. Steaks were cooked to perfection! Fun little presentation for our appetizer. “ – Cici N ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐, Google Reviews

Next on our list is an authentic “Churrascaria” steakhouse that offers a new experience in dining. Carnaval Brazilian BBQ combines the best local ingredients in Winnipeg with the traditional Brazilian barbecue. 

Customers love this restaurant’s gauchos (carvers), who serve generous cuts of seasoned beef, pork, chicken, and Brazilian sausage. Aside from its premium meat servings, traditional side dishes and its house-baked Brazilian cheese bread is to die for. 

We love how you can pair the premier meat dishes with a sip of wine selected by its in-house connoisseurs. Add it to the fact that this restaurant features Manitoba’s first Brazilian wines and its international wine list. 

For customers who can’t drink wine, it also offers many options. You can sip on its freshly-made signature cocktail, Caipirinha, or try its selection of decadent desserts. 

Of course, its premier steak dishes are the highlight of the Carnaval. Its rodizio experience brings 12 or more cuts of fire-roasted meats served tableside, which is also unlimited per the customer’s request. 

When it comes to convenience, we think this restaurant also has some great points. Customers can book online for reservations and order through SkipTheDishes and DoorDash. 

Unfortunately, it is only available four days a week. It’s closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, so you should note this before booking a reservation. 

Aside from that, its operating hours are also irregular, so we think it’s confusing. We only wish that Carnaval opened for more days in a week and had regular working hours. 

Pros

  • Authentic Brazilian barbecue
  • House-made dishes
  • Serves Brazilian wines
  • Online reservation available

Cons

  • Available for four days only
  • Irregular operating hours

Customer reviews

Great ambience

“ WOW! Epic food and even more epic service. Great ambience. The lounge is the perfect place to watch the game, enjoy great eats and a solid selection of local IPAs. 

Highly recommended. #supportlocalwinnipeg #localgood2go #greateats “ – Jason Redekopp ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐, Google Reviews

Excellent meat selection

“ The meat was awesome like usual.   The vegetables….not so much.  

They need more variety for cooked vegetables. They have a few salads, but should have more.  Just my opinion.  

I go for the meat, my wife needs more variety than just a variety of meat.  Still great place to go for a special occasion. “ – Marco Palumbo ⭐⭐⭐⭐, Google Reviews

Another steakhouse that you can try is Hermanos Restaurant and Wine Bar. It is famous not just for its sumptuous meat dishes but also for the whole experience of history and culture. 

Hermanos Restaurant is inspired by the history and culture of Argentina, Uruguay, and other South American countries. We think this is evident in its unique decor, speciality steak and wine that are rich in South American flavours. 

We love how the place is set in a South American-inspired vibe combined with the historic brick building’s ambience. Customers also appreciate how it sets the mood for a succulent meal and delicious drinks.

But of course, the highlight of the show is its speciality steak and wine. Its dishes are prepared with fresh ingredients that bring rich South American flavours from tapas to steaks, drinks, and dessert. 

Its menu also includes unique chicken dishes, vegetarian, pasta, seafood, and spirits and cocktails.

We also love how this restaurant can accommodate different groups, even large groups, for special events or occasions. For customers who wish to book a date night or a large birthday party, Hermanos can accommodate you. 

Since it’s close to The Exchange, customers can also drop by for some appetizers before visiting the area. 

Aside from that, its lounge can also accommodate 70 persons with a full menu in a more relaxed setting. However, you should note that 20% gratuity is added on groups of eight or more. 

Pros

  • South American inspired ambience
  • Has vegan and gluten-free options
  • Specialty steak and wine
  • Can accommodate large groups
  • Accessible for people with disabilities
  • Online reservation available

Cons

  • 20% gratuity added on groups of eight or more
  • Available for four days only
  • Irregular operating hours

Customer reviews

Great food and service

“ Wondered around the area and found this place for lunch. It did not disappoint, with great food and service. I had the Milanesa sandwich and it was amazing. 

The chicken was great and everything worked well together. The homemade chips were also good.

My husband had the Chivito (he liked it a lot, but I think liked mine a little better). Great lunch. Next time will have to try some of their wine, sounded excellent. “ – Sara Bush ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐, Google Reviews

Professional staff 

“The wait staff is EXCELLENT. I got the ribeye steak which is notoriously hard to cook right and though I had to send it back once it came back right.

The dishes were all really good. The drinks were all good. I wasn’t phased by the price for that quality.

I wouldn’t get the calamari, but I shouldn’t have to tell you to not get calamari and expect it to be good when you’re as far from either coast as possible. You won’t be disappointed with any of the food though. “ – Beau H ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐, Google Reviews

4. Ichiban Japanese Steakhouse & Pub

The art of teppanyaki, or iron cooking, has been a Japanese tradition for over 5,000 years. If you want to try the Teppanyaki dish style and celebrate this art of cooking, you should head to Ichiban. 

Ichiban means number one in Japanese. And, of course, its teppanyaki is top-tier. 

Although it is a little pricey, customers love its teppanyaki menu with different options such as superior dinner, imperial dinner, and Ichiban dinner. 

Its different dinner sets include filet mignon, chicken, and seafood options. It also offers a meal set for children under 12, which is a plus in our book. 

However, a 15% gratuity is added to parties of six or more. So customers who plan to go in large groups should take note of this beforehand. 

Moreover, we think diners flock to Ichiban not only for its famous teppanyaki but also for its “fire show” as chefs prepare their meals right at the table. Its communal-dining format is a fun experience that entertains customers with a comedy-cooking routine. 

We love how customers can also indulge in Japanese culture and celebrate its tradition through a dining experience. For those who wish to dine more traditionally, this restaurant offers standard dining tables and an extensive menu of unique Japanese-themed cuisine.

Aside from that, its Japanese pub offers a unique place to meet, drink, and celebrate with its traditional favourites, such as Teriyaki Poutine, Sushi Nachos, and Blue-Fin Tartar.

Another pro for this restaurant is its convenient location. It is located at the heart of Downtown Winnipeg, which makes it quite accessible for customers. 

It also provides free parking at Lakeview Square Parade for four hours. However, customers need to meet the minimum purchase required to avail of the service. 

Pros

  • Offers authentic teppanyaki options
  • Provides online booking to delivery and pickup
  • Japanese cultural experience
  • Traditional dining experience
  • Free parking for customers

Cons

  • No online reservation
  • 15% gratuity added on groups of six or more
  • Relatively expensive
  • Irregular operating hours

Customer reviews

Excellent food options

“ Great friendly, experience. Good was good, drinks were great. Great outting for a group of friends. 

They have vegetarian options as well. A little pricey but still a fun experience 🙂 will definitely be back! Have more cups to collect! “ – Samantha Carruthers ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐, Google Reviews

If you want to try the famous Tour de Beef in Winnipeg, you should add 529 Wellington Steakhouse to your bucket list. 

For over 20 years, this restaurant has received excellent ratings for its dishes, professional service, and ambience. 

It has been awarded several recognitions such as the Distinguished Restaurants of North America Award List, Winnipeg Nightlife Awards for Best Steakhouse, and the Wine Spectator for Best Award of Excellence from 2004 to 2020. 

Its top-tier Tour de Beef and extensive wine list are to die for, making this restaurant one of the most famous steakhouses in Winnipeg and Canada. Customers tell us that they feel like royalty every time they dine here, even just for a night. 

Its extensive wine list has over 700 selections and its cellar houses more than 17,000 bottles of wine. On top of that, its staff is trained by its chef so customers can receive the dining experience they deserve. 

We also love how this restaurant takes its wine selection to the next level. It has a Wine Program to offer the best wine list in Winnipeg and Canada. 

Moreover, it’s also won several recognitions from the Wine Spectator Magazine Award of Excellence and the Best of Award of Excellence. We think that these awards and recognitions only show how this restaurant is set to a standard. 

We also like its classic interior since it’s located at the historic Ashdown House, which was built in 1913. If you’re someone who loves to visit vintage restaurants, this steakhouse is ideal for you. 

Unfortunately, we think there are limitations when it comes to convenience. Customers who want to book a reservation should reach them by phone because they don’t allow online reservations. 

Aside from that, there are also no delivery options, and takeouts are available for pickup only. While this is not necessarily a deal-breaker, it would be better to provide more opportunities for customer convenience. 

Pros

  • Offers Tour de Beef
  • Has numerous awards and recognitions
  • Extensive wine list
  • Wine program
  • Excellent service

Cons

  • No online booking
  • No delivery option
