We had lunch there today - food was great, however, very poor service. The actual venue is lovely but on a cold day, the heaters uy on the open fireplace. Music too loud but the fish dishes - John Dory @ Hapuka were excellent- pity.

One of my favourite bars & restaurants in the area; where all the action is but not too loud and crowded. I’ve dined here before and can say the food is top notch. Everything you love about a gastropub; excellent food but in a casual...relaxed setting. The old fashioned cocktail I ordered was done just the way I like it.More

Fitzroy Town Hall Hotel is a typical inner city pub, It has a popular public bar, with facilities for private functions. It also has facilites for weddings, 21sts and any other sort of function. The food is typical pub food -- fish and chips, bangers...and mash and so on. The food is abundant and the beer is cold -- what more could you ask for?More

The Fitzroy Town Hall Hotel is a typical inner city pub. The food is much as you would expect , but my steak with salad was quite palatable. We do not live far from Fitzroy, but the parking is shocking; last time we went, I...got a parking ticket. The service is a bit slap-dash, but the beer is cold and in plentiful supply. My family were satisfied with the meal.More

We were there for a family birthday celebration, four adults and two small children, probably something close to every restaurant's nightmare combination. The service was excellent and accommodating. The food was not as good as I have remembered however the Chicken Liver Parfait w. Port...Reduction & Toasted Brioche was extremely generous. and the main disappointment was the $220 1.4kg Cote de Beouf. A good sized meal for two big meat-eaters. But tonight it was very fatty and very gristley. It was also a little more on the rare side of medium rare. being served sliced, it got cold fairly quickly and very fatty meat is not appetising what starts getting cold. At just over $800 for the night, it was particularly memorable.More

The food was amazing, they were quick to take our food order, but what let the whole experince of dining there is the lack of service, it was like yep you have your meal. It was only 2 of us, I felt that we were...forgotten as they were more interested in servicing the tables of bigger parties. A few times we tried to get their attention so we could order more drinks after the 3rd time with no luck in getting service we left. Just remember people of a party of 2 or less do tip big too. I will not be coming back or recommending your hotel. poor service.More

The venue is the old town hall and this gives it atmosphere - the sort of place for a special meal - maybe a romantic meal for two (or three if that’s your thing - well this is Melbourne). I went there however with my...daughter for supper and we had a really good evening. Service was execeptional. Wines were brought to our table to sample util we found one that worked for us with our meal. Attentive service - friendly and knowledgeable without being in your face by this charming young woman who served us. The food - to die for... Don’t be off going by the name - Go!!More

First time here - loved the decor. The wait staff were prompt, friendly and helpful although we did have an early booking prior to seeing a show. The waiter recommended the duck and I can say without a doubt it was superb and one of...the best dishes of duck I have eaten. The meat was tender and crisp on top, served with cherries and sauce and a cigar shaped offering which I can’t remember what it was but it was delicious! My companions both had the burger which looked very tasty. Came with thick cut chips served in a copper pan. We enjoyed a bottle of Mt Langi Ghiran Shiraz - terrific! Would recommend and go back.More
