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.

Fantastic lunch today. Polenta chips, duck sausage cassoulet and vegetable tart were all delicious. Beautiful bottle of Chardonnay as well. Service from Ann(e) was first class despite it being so busy due to the Pride March. She was attentive and super friendly. 100% recommended this...place if you’ve not been and we will certainly be returning. Thank you.More

Absolutely delicious breakfast and great coffee! It was so hard to choose off the menu because there were so many yummy looking breakfasts. The chilli scrambled eggs were to die for!!!

Friends had told us about Fitrovia’s coffee so we couldn’t wait for our chance to experience it. This cafe is quintessential St Kilda! Located central Fitzroy St with all the quirk of that fabulous street and with the polish and professionalism of a well run...machine. The coffee is fabulous. The menu simple, varied and delicious. The premises are a renovated stunning St Kilda period mansion with soaring metal pressed ceilings and enough detail to remind us we are in this majestic suburb but also some juxtaposition with modern updates to present classic grandeur with shiny, clean. Saving the best til last - the staff! Motivated, passionate, energetic and plenty of them. A happy place for a quick bite or leisurely catch up over a Bloody Mary!More

Without a doubt this Cafe is the best Cafe and restaurant in St. Kilda and has few equals in Melbourne. The coffee is by St. Ali and never fails to please. The food is interesting, fresh, local and most importantly, really tasty. The owner, Darren,...and his team really know how to look after the guests. Service is always prompt yet friendly. There's a great vibe whether inside or outside, a perfect spot for people watching. Strongly recommended. Don't miss this gem!More

I took a 20 mins Uber to visit this place because it came recommended. The menu looked good, but even though the staff looked like nice people, all of them kept running about. No-one seemed to have a specific focus. For more than 35 minutes,...I tried to get anyone's attention, but no one appeared to notice that I wanted to order. Of course I could have gotten up to grab someone, but I decided to leave because I was sitting in the back room which has such horrendous acoustics, that everyone was screaming louder and louder to be able to communicate with each other. So I grabbed my coat and left. None of the staff seemed to wonder why...More

I went for brunch with our family group. I had checked the night before that they had vegan and gluten free options - I know difficult person! The option was a muesli and fruit. I asked for gluten free bread, tomatoes and mushrooms but mushrooms...and tomato done in butter. Lovely waitress said they could do tomatoes fresh. Ok and spinach - they could do that fresh too. Avocado they could do without the feta. When plate came out half an avocado, four thin slices of raw tomato and half a plate of raw spinach out of the bag with slimy bits in it. I was so disappointed. Staff and coffee were fine.More

I love Fitzrovia, great food always, I've been coming in on visits to Melbourne for about three years now. Never had a bad experience from coffee mornings to full lunch service it has always been a delightful destination. Today however was different, despite booking in...advance my companion and I were treated as a nuisance from the get go. We were a lunch booking, not late, not early. The service was so poor, and from both waitstaff too. We were made to feel inconvenient, there was no politeness in the table service and on paying I was shocked by the curt response of the second waitstaff. The waitstaff made it clear that any attention required was a bother, we even felt bad staying for a tea after our meal so decided to change our orderinto takeaways..the waitstaff actually rolled their eyes at our request even though we made the transfer of the tea to the takeaway containers ourselves. The food was wonderful and I think the restaurant owners and chefs deserve to know that their staff let them down. Very disappointing experience from an otherwise wonderful place.More

I just left Fitzrovia after being spoken to like a naughty child for no reason at all by a horrible waitress. I was quite traumatised. I don't know why she was so vile and looking for an argument. Just don't go there if you have...any self respect.More

Went twice this week. Monday perfect for outdoor lunch. Wednesday a friend's birthday and everybody more that happy with the service - outstanding. Fitzrovia is our go-to place for the best value in town. I have never found a place more accommodating to our needs.

Yes they do but you'd need to book. Also they are not undercover so be prepared. Out door tables are highly sought after as the venue is pet friendly for outside tables and they have a pet menu.
