Great service, friendly, informative, very St Kilda, lots of car parking.
Service needs so so much work... came in with a non friendly welcome to be sat down and dumped with menus. Had to call over waiter to order drinks to later feel rushed to order with an arrogant attitude like we weren’t wanted there. We asked for water when we sat down and ended up having to bring over our own glasses and fill up own bottle of water after 15 mins realising it wouldn’t come. Several times we had finished plates stacked up in front of us for at least 20-30 mins. Waiter, by waitress, walking pass and not once were we asked for top up of drinks and or were plates cleared nor shell bowls. Finished and again waited for another 30 mins to ask for our plates to be cleared to wait a further 30 mins to ask for dessert menses... common guys seriously... hospitality is all about great service and upselling... Our whole table were discussing how disgraceful it was to have such a beautiful venue with such wonderful food but a gap in service. Overall just absolutely broken for a what could be a great business 6:30pm arrival 10pm finish....
I had reserved and requested a sunny table for one outside. I presented myself to a waitress in the courtyard area and I was told to go inside and check in which I did. Then I was told to go outside where I was told I could sit anywhere I chose. During the 10 minutes I waited at my un-set table I took the initiative to grab a menu from the bar. I was not offered anything to drink nor was I brought any water on a 30+ degree day. I felt the two women on duty in the courtyard were overwhelmed and obviously not happy about it. Finally, seeing the closed menu in front of me, one of them asked if I knew what I wanted to order. I ordered a glass of wine and the spanikopita. The wine came relatively soon afterward, delivered by a very professional gentleman, and a little while later the spanikopita arrived, brought by a waitress from indoors. I sensed that it wasn't warm and tested it with the back of my hand and asked the server to take it back and have it warmed which she happily did. About two-thirds through my ninety minute stay a breath of fresh air swooped in in the form of an energetic personable French woman who, upon seeing my empty glass, asked if I would like another. I said no, I would like to pay and leave. She was very charming and helped me to pay and I have to say she was the best part of my lunch.
We had the seafood platter, it was nice and very well presented (it should be for $240) however, the lobster, bugs, scallops, whitebait, prawns and bbq baby octopus were a bit tasteless. The oysters were delicious and the mussels were beautiful. No comment on the staff.
