Tucked away off Macleod Trail in the South, Wellington's is worth the drive. The unassuming building gives way to reveal a very good steak experience. Steaks are properly prepared by a veteran chef in glassed off grill area - entertaining itself. Wellington's is one of the few restaurants that still prepare certain foods at table side like the Ceaser salad (a must have for ceaser lovers), the steak tartar (one of the best) and various desert features.
The only thing they could improve is to permit corkage or expand the wine list.

I hate to do a review on this restaurant about as much as I hate telling my friends about it. My husband and "discovered" this wonderful place many, many years ago and it's been "our" place for those special intimate dinners on special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries etc. We always taken our "out of town and out of country" friends here. We thoroughly enjoy the waiters, who are always dressed up beautifully and enjoy an absence of waitresses (nothing negative here against waitresses people) we just love to see waiters dressed up when going formal. And if you want to go formal then this is the place to do so. We have NEVER, EVER had a bad meal here. Food is exquisite and beautifully cooked to perfection I have never had to send anything back to the kitchen and have never seen a plate from another table being sent back. The service is perfection itself - you are treat with care, consideration and wonderful manners by all. We make an evening of the occasion and just wallow in being treated like for royality. Do NOT plan on coming here for a quick meal. The whole evening is an experience in beautiful manners, excellent food, beautifully set tables and wonderful atmosphere. Very romantic. It is a quiet place with quiet music and subdued lighting. Don't expect the large noisy, sneaker/jeans wearing crowds that you see in other restaurants - it ain't happening here. This is a jacket and tie place. This is dining at it's finest. We will be spending time here this July as we celebrate our 50th anniversary. Thumbs up to owners and staff - you are the BEST. Don't ever change - you're one of a kind and WE LOVE YOU!

We were with a pretty good sized group here, about 15 including 4 small kids. This old school steakhouse with a clean neat decor and the big glassed in grill to watch your steak cooking. Always a great meal here from the table side house made caesar salad and dressing, to the main courses steak chicken fish. And finishing with table side flambé of Cherries jubilee. You really can't go wrong if your looking for a steak house. A step up from the "Keg" The staff really looked after our large group on a busy night. Without a "kids menu" they even looked after the kids with chicken strips, grilled cheese, noodles or almost what ever they wanted . Well done Wellingtons .

Last night we had dinner plans my husband and I. His brother and sister in law joined us.
The drinks on time, my montechristo was delicious!
Caesar salad made table side, huge and fresh.
Filet mignon special with lobster tail for the girls and sirloin for the boys, everyone was happy.
The highlight was desserts...creme caramel and cheesecake.
But our best meal there was with our best friends, Cam and Sheryl, and we keep going back for another important reason, the service!!!
Denis everytime makes the experience perfect.
They are so lucky to have Denis there, makes you feel like family, thank you for perfect evenings with friends and family :)
