Maybe I sound like a snobby toff from the big smoke but I was surprised to find this gem at our hotel stop. We had a starter of oysters (one of each option on the menu) and they were delicious. We then had medium rare porterhouse steak and it was cooked to perfection. To make the evening great I could not fault the service. All in all a good meal!

The services was superb.

We ordered a medium steak, and was served one which is slightly more well done than it should be. We made a feedback to the waitress. She apologised, and immediately arranged for the kitchen to re-do our steak. The chef personally presented the new steak thereafter, and stayed on while we cut the steak to ensure that it is indeed medium and to our liking. We were simply amazed by the level of service and professionalism rendered.

And moreover, this incident took place at 10am. Most restaurants would have already been preparing for closing.

Restaurant 98 has the potential to be a great restaurant, but needs a few things improved. The food is quite expensive (higher than the surrounding places) and could be that next level that you are looking for.
I have been a number of times with work colleagues, and it seems to be the same pattern each time. The service is fairly poor as you seem to wait forever for you course to come out. A few times not all the meals for the group have not been delivered with everyone else and given the delay they were obviously forgotten to be cooked. This is a steak restaurant and while it is good food, it is not great. The taste just seems to be lacking.
I would return again, but only if I have the time to wait and I am not paying for the experience. If you can get in, go up the road for the same cost but a much better experience.

Thank you for your comments. As the owner of the restaurant I am very disappointed to hear of your experience, this is not what we want to hear about our service. I have had a serious talking to the wait staff to ensure that long waiting does not happen again. I am not sure why a meal was delayed all I can do it apologize for it.
We ensure that our steak is of a high quality and this does come at a cost but I do believe we are competitive with the restaurants within the vicinity.
I invite you to please come again as I am sure that the experience you had does not happen again.
