Delectable Dining
Sip. Taste. Sense ... the mantra of Steve's Bistro, an upscale eatery that's been re-inventing the
Mediterranean experience for over two years.

Thanks to a major makeover, what was formerly Steve's Place, a 27-year hot spot for family dining, has
since found a place amidst Winnipeg's finest. The bistro offers a warm artful atmosphere complete
with contemporary tavern-inspired décor, an eclectic selection of drinks, and fare that's traditional and
artful.


First: Sip.
5 bucks swings a tangy swig of a double Cosmopolitan, the martini special. But equally impressive is a
tall Lumberjack Lemonade, stirring peach schnapps, lemon, and bubbly 7-up with burly Jack Daniels.


Now: Taste.
The comprehensive menu is well priced and features a range of lunch and dinner bites. Appetizers
include Baked Brie, while Mains range from house-made burgers to Caramel Pork Tenderloin to
Souvlaki.


Steve's four-course $35 fixed price dinner makes for easy choice and satisfying variety - including an
appetizer, soup or salad, entrée and dessert. For good measure, we also request Stuffed Chicken a la
carte.


The appetizer - herby grilled pita wedges with a specialty dip. From a selection of classics, we opt for
olive tapenade. Blending kalamata and green olives, capers and oil, this dip's an olive-lovers dream.
Fresh greens follow and are elegantly tossed in sundried tomato vinaigrette.


More sipping! Unpretentious house drinking comes from Cono Sur's lines of Chilean Blanc Sauvignon
and Merlot. Sauvignon is a crisp tropical sip, while deep red Merlot hints crushed berries. Both pair
well with the mains, which come with flavourful fresh roasted vegetables and choices of lemon-roasted
potato, Parmesan potato, or rice pilaf.


The fixed price main is a New York strip loin expertly grilled and blissfully unembellished. Meanwhile,
the a la carte entrée sees a mouth-watering chicken breast stuffed with spinach and feta, then covered
with creamy Dijon lemon sauce.


Finish: Sense.
For dessert, it's no wonder Bread Pudding gets accolades. Spongy baked custard is dotted with raisin,
caramel drenched, and lavishly crowned with vanilla ice cream.


A standout finale is Greek coffee, brewed Turkish-style to rich and creamy perfection. Summer 2011

There is a Mediterranean feel to the restaurant reflected in the internal architecture and the softly-playing music.

Due to the warm ambiance of the restaurant my friends and I stayed for nearly an hour after finishing our meals (trying to finish anyway!) just chilling. I will definitely be revisiting and highly recommend this restaurant to people looking to have a good eat and a good time. January 18, 2010

Delicious, unusual, fresh, arty, cozy, unique - absolutely loved it. Try the Greek coffee! November 20, 2010

Very relaxed yet upscale atmosphere, Excellent food and Great value. If you go once you'll be going back often. Also, the Wine List is full of unexpected & inexpensive delights unlike most restaurants that charge 3x times over retail prices. Well worth your next Dining Experience. November 20, 2010

After Driving by Steve's twice a day for a long time - always wondering if I should try it out - I decided that it was time. What took us so long? My wife & I had a great supper with pleasant service, delicious food, and an affordable bill. We're definitely going back. January 2010

A beautiful local eatery with charm and a certain personal emphasis. Steve has really done a smashing job with the interior of the restaurant with modern furnishings, lightening and sound system. This is a nice place for an intimate gathering. January 1, 2011

Service is very warm and genuine. I liked how the owner, Steve, greeted every table and took the time to either walk patrons out personally or say thanks and good night to all the customers. November 21, 2010

Been here three times now with various different people, and found the food, and service great every time.  They put an effort into providing a good food and a moderate price, a real surprise because I was originally not expecting much from this restaurant from how it looked from the street.

When I am out that end of town I would have no hesitation dropping in for lunch or diner. Novemeber 11, 2010
