Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

New caterers…. Great food…keep up the good work and we will be regulars again. Staff very friendly ambiance great. Nice to be back after one and a half years of not going as the last catering company brought the place down. If you, like me,...didn’t go for same reason, you will be pleasantly surprised…. Bon Appetite….More

We didn't read any reviews before coming and loved our lunch here. Helpful staff, easy parking, tasty food, what more could we ask?

Food was good but service was terrible! Arrived at 12:30 with 12 people - 3 separate orders. We were first to order at 1pm, followed by second group at 1:05 and last group at 1:15. The last group meal arrived first at 1:30, followed by...second group shortly after. Half our order came at 1:50. Still waiting on 2 pizzas! When I complained. Final pizza come at 2:20. - 1 hour and 20 mins late. Didn’t offer a refund for the poor service- only a free coffee and cake! Ruiened a celebration lunch! Never again.More

7 people all ordered at the same time, ordered the loaf with Garlic Butter, got 3 slices of bread hardly any garlic butter on it. Had one meal come out a steak, my son in law ordered he had finnished his meal, then 2 Caesar...salads came one with chicken and one with 3 small pieces of smoked salmon. We then complained about how the meals were coming out. Then the remaining entrees and main meals all came out at once. My brothers entree and meal came out together then my husbands steak, and our friends ribs all came out together. Now I had not been to the club for about a year, because of a bad experience, but thought things might have changed so we decided to bring friends from out of town hoping to have a nice evening at a nice club, but was terribly disappointed. Staff were rude when we complained and asked to see a supervisor. The lady that did come and see us was very nice . I don't think I will ever visit the club again , I was so disappointed and can't recommend this place fo our experienceMore

This is a great place for a good meal in a lovely setting, however this time we felt a bit let down by the meals. Unfortunately the menu reads better than the dish delivered. Although we enjoyed our meals (due to hunger), they could be...so much better with a little tweaking: Hand cut black truffle chips are not chips, but huge chunky wedges. What a shame they weren't more elegant like a French frite. The truffle aioli was delicious. Wagyu beef bresaola - wagyu was too chunky and chewy. Would have been a much nicer dish had the wagyu been sliced thinly or shaved. Soft fish tacos - described as tempura, but really just battered. Yuk. Just too much. These would have been absolutely perfect had the fish been grilled. Seared scallops wrapped in prosciutto with spiced corn puree, chorizo, black bean and charred corn salsa - the scallops were overcooked - bit stringy and rubbery and there was not enough of the corn puree. Could be a standout dish with a bit of finesse and correct cooking of the scallops. Would definitely return but hope in the meantime the meals live up to their menu description.More

The lady on the door was more intent on ensuring we did not get in rather than helping us enter. You would think in these struggling times you would want people to enter your club and spend some money! Once finally inside, it was like...god’s waiting room. No entertainment and average age in the eighties. Get with the times!!More

While the food was good and the ambience is good, the experience was ruined by the manager who was rude and arrogant. I was over charged on a meal. I just figured a mistake had been made and that it could be rectified, which I...would have been happy with. Instead the manager refused to issue a credit for the difference, he said it could not be done, even though they made the mistake.More

Chefs special of lamb was...2 small lamb kebabs, well cooked, a GREEK salad with a vinegar dressing and GRAVY. burnt pitta bread and CHIPS .Expensive for what it was but also unpleasant combination of salad flavors. All the other meals were small beyond belief .We all needed dessert after our tiny meals. Staff were lovely but the kitchen let you down Stick to the bar and forget the meals.More

Mother’s Day booking at 5.30pm. Very busy with a line to order and pay of some 30 people till late. Waited one hour on line! Finally At the cash register our dine/discover vouchers were rejected because the girl at the register said they don’t work...even though the TV monitor on the wall was displaying that they were acceptable. Finally ordered entrees and mains. Everything came at once! Pizza oven has to be one of the most impressive installations I’ve seen but pizzas are pathetic with condiments stale and of very questionable quality, visually off pieces of ham/salami etc only 4 chefs in the kitchen working like slaves trying to keep up. Where there was previously a a lovely Seating space accomodating guests waiting for their tables adjacent the bar is now full of poker machines.More

We went to the Mazi in Lantern club 2 weeks ago on Sunday. It was 5:30pm and we could not order the burgers they say non left. I normally eat Vegetarian burger because I am vegetarian. But no burgers so I asked the staff at...casher ' What do you recommend for the vegetarian ? ' He said ' Don't com to the club'. I never experienced such a rude comment at restaurant in Australia before. I was very disappointed as a member there.More

Can’t comment on the food because it never arrived and customer service was the worst I have ever experienced in my entire life. I Was there for an end of season celebration dinner with a group of about 30 people. We each ordered and paid...for our own meals separately. Waited ages for my dish to then realised it was given to the wrong person at my table, whom subsequently sent it back because she realised the waitress made a mistake. When I approached the manager to explained the dish that was mistakenly given to the wrong person was actually my order, the response I was given was “well we can’t make you another one or refund the money because it was already served. You’ll have to talk to the lady who took your dish by mistake to sort it out.” Umm excuse me?!!! It was your waitress who made the mistake of serving it to the wrong customer and now it’s somehow my responsibility to chase up with your other customer for an order that I had paid YOU for? The manager was adamant it was not their fault and not their responsibility to fix the issue. So through no fault of my own, I was now left with no food after paying full price for it and was gobsmacked at the way I was treated. I finally got a refund after a few of the other ladies from our group tried to intervene. The manager then said “well now that we’re giving you the money back, don’t give us a bad review because we don’t want management to know about this.” Well how many other stuff ups have you been hiding from management? Her attitude towards me throughout the entire interaction was nothing but unprofessional and outright disgusting. It was my first visit and will be my last. I will not be recommending this restaurant to anyone.More
