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.

The service was good until we asked for changes to the menu. All steaks were served with mushroom jus and the chef could not accommodate a different sauce for 3 steak meals, there was no other sauces available on the menu. The Korean chicken was...reheated but still cold in the middleMore

Great location and venue is very nice. BUT.... Shocking service and very average food. First got the drinks order wrong Ordered bottle of wine for 4 of us, gave us 3 wine glasses. 1 of the menus had the old prices Ordered 1 Stracciatel but...got 2, very nice but not enough bread with it. Ordered the 4 mains, 3 were delivered, kitchen forgot one dish so the rest of us had finished before the 4th meal arrved. At least it wasn't charged for. 8 scallops in the midst of few peas was not value for money at $39. Had to ask for dessert menu twice but no one came back to ask what we would like. By that time we were over it vowing never to come back.More

Where do I start! The ONLY good thing was the food when we finally got it!! SERVICE is terrible. Had to constantly ask for drinks. When after waiting 15 minutes for 2 beers and a bottle of wine (which was just dumped in front of...me and I had to pour it at the start, no asking to taste first then pour) we were told that the beer had run out and would we like another type. After complaining - we were then asked every 2 minutes if we would like something…..then the music 😤 someone in their wisdom turned up the music so loud it was like I was 21 and at a nightclub at 2am.More

The spot is nice, right on the river, it was a bit dead during the week and service was with a smile, but not great. The items didn't come out correctly, 3 times. That said, again the team were lovely. Meals were reasonable and with...a bit of focus, this place could be great.More

We ordered the sharing platter with the option to order mains afterwards. For three of us we couldnt believe the size or the quality of each of the dishes. It really was superb and my sister and her husband from Victoria were very impressed. We...were totally satiated and went for the creme brulee instead. They live in the Yarra Valley and very pleased to see wine from this region also represented.. Service was unobtrusive and timely. Kudos to the staff and Management teamMore

Well if anything could go wrong, it certainly did for us taking friends out to dinner to celebrate their 60th birthday. The table booked for inside wasn't ready when we arrive and it was outside. We ordered sparkly water but it didn't arrive so we...had to follow up. The wine we ordered wasn't correct and then there was a long delay in getting 4 glasses. The pan-seared gnocchi was so salty I couldn't eat it. The salad was so overdressed and again salty. The steak was overcooked and the chips were very salty. It certainly wasn't worth the $52.00. When we received our bill there were 3 drinks on it we didn't order or have. The person on the counter couldn't even add the 3 drinks up in his head ( ie $10, $13, $13 to get $36.00 and then didn't know how to credit our credit card. After a long wait, we asked for the overcharge to be given to us in cash. Then the waiter couldn't even give us the correct cash back ie he had short-changed us $5.00 which we had to ask for. I have never experienced a restaurant getting everything wrong before and this one certainly did.More
