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.

We've recently visited several fine dining restaurants and consistently felt disappointed. Finally... we discovered a gem. Thank you for restoring our faith in fine dining!

Where do l begin ? From the moment we stepped in, the exceptional service began, everyone greeted you as you walked by. The restaurant hadn’t opened at this stage so we were shown to a private table with breathtaking views of Melbourne, where we both...enjoyed a pre dinner drink. We were then taken to our table in the restaurant and the exceptional experience began. 13 small courses of the most highest quality delicious tasting food, “talk about a party in your mouth”. Do yourselves a favour and indulge yourselves in this unbelievable experience, you won’t regret it.More

Finding the entrance to Lui Bar in Vue De Monde was a bit of an adventure, but once we made it in, we were spoiled to have all the spontaneous drinks and yummy food. The sunset views from the bar were absolutely stunning. This is...definately a great and romantic place for a kids free couple date night. The entire experience was wonderful until it came time to settle the bill upon leaving the bar. We were taken aback when the bartender mentioned their reliance on tips from tourists, contrasting with the local custom of minimal tipping and we live in melbourne. This left us with mixed feelings as we departed, especially after paying a substantial bill with high service charges. While we're not sure if we're overthinking it, the encounter did leave us feeling slightly awkward.More

Outstanding service made this an experience we will never forget! From the welcome and entry right through to our departure we felt special. Our table staff Jasmine and Sommelier Fergus made every moment and interaction memorable. Finishing our evening with a private balcony view of...the city and our favourite music playing was spectacular! The mouth watering food was a bonus for this amazing evening. Extra special mention to Stewart who took apart the balcony on the 55th floor to retrieve my husbands dropped phone the next morning!More

We’ve got a present from our children: a dinner in this restaurant . So we visited it and everything can be described as incredible: service, view,, food and even cutlery. The restaurant is placed on 55th floor so probably all city can be seen, especially...in evening time with streets and vehicles lights. Service was so extremely professional and friendly , that you can feel that everyone of restaurant staff is serving particularly your table. We even had a kitchen tour. And picture with restaurant staff. Regarding food , honestly at beginning I had concerns about very small portions size, but at the final stage of dinner we were full. All dishes were extremely delicious. Only one small thing, which was negative for us that some of sauces and lobster soup were too salty in our taste. Presentation of dishes is also incredible. Some dishes comes on or in stones. Cutlery is also special and placed on wood from vineyards. This place is really unique experience. It is not cheap place but it worth it.More

Before I start, I want to qualify that the hostess and host on the ground level were awesome-I wish they were upstairs or at least their spirit and delightfulness was!! If they had been like their team upstairs, I would have left immediately! The reviews...are excellent but I’m not sure why based on my time here. I can only surmise that I didn’t fit the profile. Sadly, I was excited to dine here but that turned sour very fast. This was a very unfortunate experience as clearly I was persona non grata. Do not go here unless you have a reservation, or are here to see and be seen, and are dressed appropriately. After checking in and being taken upstairs by terrific hosts, everything went to crap. From the time to even be acknowledged by any one of the 8 people at the bar (20 minutes), to being able to order something, they made me feel like an intruder in their special place and that I was not welcome. And that is just fine! I have tons of options!! Because it’s on the 55 floor, I wanted to check out the views. That, too, was discouraged repeatedly. No less than 3 different people questioned me for what I was doing, and I was then ‘escorted’ back to where I belonged at the bar!! There was not one person dining at the time so I was not in anyone’s space. Their restaurant wasn’t open yet but this was clearly not allowed. Why be on the top floor with views if not for guests to enjoy it? A $30 cocktail that was underwhelming and I was done…well, after I finally get the attention of someone to pay my bill! More than an hour, $30, lots of attitude, and all for 1 okay cocktail!! Never againMore

Staff were excellent. Atmosphere was very good. Had trouble with 3 of the dishes that in my opinion smothered the hero ingredient, but the other 10 dishes were excellent. The wines were ok to very good. We chose our own wines. My only negative was...the table size (picky I know). We were a party of 4 , but we had a table that could have sat 8. I felt a long way away from my fellow diners. The view from the table though was spectacular.More

The servers lacked in almost all expectations. Wine Som was a D+. Zero personality & wine quality was average at best. Food was impressive!

Full tasting is about $250 pp but varies. Wine pairing ranges from about 150 to 250 pp - depends on how much you want to drink and how much you want to spend
