After being turned down by another restaurant whose staff was not able to take our booking properly, my family ended up at this place to celebrate my son's 18th birthday. We were all impressed by the excellent service and good food and a deplorable situation was turned into wonderful memories instantly.

My partner and I had a meal at Albert and Sydney formerly Albert Street Food and Wine in Brunswick this week. We have previously dined here under the former named restaurant. What a disaster of a meal and quite inedible food. We waited 3/4 of an hour for a very poorly cooked steak and a chicken schnitzel. During our wait... More

I must say this is one of my favorite restaurants and wine bars in the north. Great building, decor, food, service and cocktails. Love it!

Beautifully cooked steak, so smooth but with a delicious amount of crunch on the outside. The staff were very professional and welcoming. Wine was fantastic, great range. Will be coming back often!

This location used to be Albert Street Food & Wine - a fine dining restaurant amongst the top in Melbourne. It has changed its name, decor and chef, and become a bar. Unfortunately the food is bad even for pub food, although the prices are still high. My partner's 'spatchcocked chicken' appeared to be one drumstick with a few dried... More

This restaurant has been transformed into a really cool bar (with an amazing range of wines, cocktails and spirits) and light meals that you can share with friends or just pick at while you have a drink. They have a regular DJ who was playing really funky beats the night I went. The staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgable. It... More

Really enjoyed the food.... although next time would share a slow cooked Saturday main dish as there was just too much meat all at once for me (even though the brisket was beautifully cooked). The side vegetable dishes were delicious - particularly the broccoli and pumpkin. The wine list was quite good. We had a large group for a family... More

We came for our anniversary dinner. Jason made us welcome from the start, we were seated promptly, given enough time to debate food and booze orders. We're not usually cocktail drinkers, but Jason let us know that there was a cocktail Jedi behind the bar! We had an excellent Manhattan and espresso martini. The food was beautiful and we retired...
