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.

Selected MWC for a suitable dining option whilst catching up with family in Melbourne. Had no prior knowledge or expectation from the venue other than anticipated Steak speciality restaurant. We had a fantastic evening at the restaurant with some terrific food. The staff were fantastic,...and would like to single out the duty or floor manager for his professionalism and positive approach to making our evening great. We had some light entrees but focused on the main steak options and for the most part they were wonderful, not sure how they are prepared or what basting is used but my NY sirloin turned out to be one of the top steaks i've experienced, really nice. Some of the others looked equally tasty. We had a minor issue with one of the sides not being served with our mains but really have to congratulate the staff or quickly offering a fantastic remedy of some free desserts or the dessert tasting platter as an apology and good will gesture. The tasting platter was great and most of our group wouldn't have been able to squeeze a full dessert in so getting to try a few of their lovely offerings was lovely. Can't speak highly enough of the staff who quickly and without fuss turned a potentially negative note into an extremely positive one. We now have a MWC locally and will be endeavouring to get there in the near future to try it out. Would highly recommend for a great dining option - especially meat loversMore

Disappointing visit for a family birthday. It just wasn’t as good as it should have been. I booked the table a month in advance and we were put on a small table squashed in so much we struggled to fit the food on the table....The waiter gave us incorrect information when we asked about the menu. It was a special occasion for us but service was average, food OK and I left feeling disappointed and that we should have gone somewhere else .More

We have been many years ago so we were so looking forward to returning, we booked months ahead in great anticipation. On arrival we were seated downstairs in an area that felt like a “ food court”. Wait staff were pleasant and tried hard ,...we ate and left. We were incredibly disappointed. Food was ok.More

Had a wonderful experience last night. In spite of arriving quite late, almost at closing time, I was promptly seated and I had the opportunity to taste an exquisite kangaroo meat plate (skewer), which excelled every expectation. Paired with two very good local red wines,...the dinner lasted longer and quite late after the official hours, but the personnel was very nicely accommodating, allowing me even to order a cheese dessert plate (excellent) and a sweet wine to pair with. Overall a great experience from every point of view..More

This was our first day in Australia, and we wanted to try Aussie steak! This popped up on the list and it was close to our hotel, so we gave it a try. From browsing on the web, my initial thought was that this was...like "The Keg" back in Canada, given it was more reasonably priced and there were a few locations. It EXCEEDED our expectations with respect to the quality of meat! It may be priced like "The Keg", but it is way better. We even tried another steakhouse in Cairns, and we felt this was superior. A must-try for steak lovers!More

We were on a trip to Melbourne for our anniversary & booked dinner here days in advance. From start to finish we had the most wonderful dining experience. Our waitress Emma was great. We had the scallops for entree. OMG, just devine. Hubby and I...both ordered the rib eye steaks. Absolutely beautiful steak, cooked extremely well. Affogatto and chocolate fondant to finish a beautiful dinner experience. So glad we booked in here, finished off our getaway in the best way.More

These guys know how to cook a steak and that is all I have to say. The cost of the steak was worth the experience. Just a shame one of the waiters was a bit unpleasant and the girl at reception needs to learn how...to smile and make you feel welcome, we got the impression we were bother her, she did that to guy before us as well.

Meal and service was excellellent. Great to go out...without feeling ripped off which is so often the case these days. This was fantastic value and a fantastic lunch.

We went for lunch without a reservation and we were seated prompltly. The ambiance is nice, like typical steakhouses The food was delicious, and the steak had a kind of glazed grilling, which gave it a good flavor. I ordered my steak medium rare, and...it came out medium. It is kind of disappointing when you go to a steakhouse and they can't get the cooking right. The waiter offered to change my steak, but my friends have already started eating, so i didn't want to give my plate back, and I ate it. The service as good and their prices are on the high side.More
