Had our work Melbourne Cup lunch here. Service & food were great. We were seated along a window, which was nice. They made an effort to make it a very jovial Melb Cup themed day. We had fun thank you!
Great for interstate visitors - a shame rooftop booked out
Lovely, light venue, never too busy, quiet enough to talk, food is excellent and I like the 125ml wine glasses so you can have a bit at lunchtime for a special occasion without going overboard. Highly recommend.
Love the lunch deal, value for money. The waiter that seats you is fantastic and really welcoming. A great place for lunch/dinner.
We went during Vivid so I expected it would take a little time to be served. We ordered pretty quickly but i think it only took minutes for our order to come out. While the salmon and ravioli dishes were nice, my lamb ragu tasted a little like it had been prepared earlier and reheated - the pasta that was not in immediate contact with the sauce was dry and tacky. Also once we had eaten, we were not asked about dessert and we couldn't catch an eye to receive the bill so we had to go up and pay with no bill which caused some confusion. Again, this was during Vivid so some of this is due to the restaurant being busy.
Salt Meats Cheese has really great vegan options now! I recommend the roast pumpkin risotto. My fellow diners also really enjoyed their meals and my margarita (the drink not the pizza!) was delicious. We were seated in a quiet area which was great. The only thing I could fault was that the waitress initially didn't write our order down and tried to memorise it. This makes me nervous when ordering the vegan options of menu items! But she did end up writing them down and all the food was perfect. Would return!
We had the risotto in the Parmesan cheese wheel. It was good fun, delicious and quite good value. The portion size was smaller than we had thought. We initially didn’t think we would manage it but we should have ordered a side to go with the risotto or a starter. There was a bit of a wait for the risotto. A starter would be a good idea while you wait. We will definitely return. The venue is great. Wine and cocktails are excellent. See you again soon.
Food was good, prices pretty good for the taste and the service. Pasta portions are not that big but they taste good and fresh. Pizza portions are pretty good. Service was a bit hard to reach on the day because it seemed like they were understaffed on the floor for how busy it was and you had to reach out to the staff a couple of times since they had over things to attend. However they all had very good attitude. For those who want to have a dinner date: The place is a bit noisy
We ate at an early time, so the restaurant wasn't too busy or loud. The service was friendly, proficient and attentive. Food arrived quickly. The ambient temperature felt a bit too warm (we were seated further in). I found it a little strange that our table (for 2) was slightly separated from a setting for 4. It felt quite close to our neighbour and made us conscious of conversation.
Greatly enjoyed the pizza and pasta, and the Circular Quay restaurant is a beautiful place. Though the food was quite high quality, the portion size isn't the most generous for the price, so there may be better restaurants out there for value for money. Considering the great service and lovely ambience, I would still suggest Salt Meats Cheese as a good choice for a nicer meal.
