Dinner on the bridge!

How would you like to dine on exquisite French cuisine while taking in a glorious view of our city from Winnipeg's most beautiful landmark, the Riel Esplanade?

I have made arrangements with Chez Sophie for 30 of us (or much less, depending on member interest) to get a set menu to choose from:

- Chicken with rice or duck breast
- Pickerel or salmon
- Beef bourgenion or filet mignon

Each dinner will include soup or salad, the main entree and dessert, all for $35.00 (not including drinks, tips and taxes).

Please RSVP if interested... I want to see what kind of numbers we come up with, and then I can lower the attendee list if necessary. Note that you will either be able to park on the St. Boniface side off of Provencher, or in the Forks parking lot across from the Human Rights Museum.

 

As always, please change your RSVP in advance if something else comes up and you can't make it.  Do also read the important new RSVP Policy posted at our Message Board.

    I just heard a moment ago on the radio, BOB FM, Chez Sophie is closing their doors effective immediately! What a surprise! It is Feb[masked]:13pm. I guess they didn't do too well business wise. I always thought that spot though, should have been for something more touristy. Stuff people walking by on the bridge could afford. But just my thought on the subject.

      I just heard that too. You're right, I think it was too expensive for the average person. Plus winter doesn't help.

      February 2, 2015

  • Carol C.

    I'm sorry to hear that, too. My guess is that they had far fewer customers in winter and couldn't afford to continue.

    I enjoyed the meal from start to finish! Soup was great, the dressing & salad good and the Beef Bourgion was delicious. The Daiquri wasn't good until I asked them for more strawberry puree.

    Company was great, would not recommend this restaurant, thanks to Mary 'Ann for organizing this and 'sweet talking' the owner:) By the way, Presley Scott Pappas was born at 8:24 our time for those of you who were wanting me to inform them.

    Honourable mention goes to the owner of Chez Sophie, who was so gracious in keeping the restaurant open for our group and the 6 staff taking care of just 17 of us foodies.

    My sincerest apologies, I will be out of town unexpectedly for the day and unsure if I can make it back in time. Enjoy.

  • Mary A.

    Great news! They recently changed their Sunday hours so are staying open just for us, meaning we'll have the restaurant to ourselves! Be sure to bring your cameras too :)

    July 18, 2013

    Mary Ann, just noticed that there is a few spots available. Can I still attend or is it just too late?

    July 17, 2013

    • Mary A.

      Of course, Christie! Please add yourself and which entree will you have?

      I need to know what entree you voted for so I can inform the restaurant, thanks.

      July 17, 2013

  • Mary A.

    Okay! 27 foodies are confirmed... and please make every effort to attend! Only 24 of you voted, so if you didn't vote, you're getting filet mignon (medium rare). I'm so looking forward to this!

    July 17, 2013

  • Mary A.

    Sorry Dominique, their menu for groups does not offer vegetarian dishes. This new location does not offer pizza either.

    Sorry, not my kind of cuisine.

    June 17, 2013

  • Carol C.

    Oops, I was looking at the regular menu, not the set one for us. You could try calling to see if there was something else they could substitute.

    June 17, 2013

  • Carol C.

    Dominique, they do have salads and vegetarian pizza on their menu.

    Would love to attend but there does not seem to be a vegetarian option.
