Great experience! The staff gave us complimentary entrees which was lovely, and the service was excellent - very helpful yet not in our faces. My family and I were particularly impressed with Jonah.
Had a lovely dinner, food and drink were delicious. Staff where extremely flexible and organised a new table when there was an addition to our party.
Great atmosphere. Great food. Great drinks. Good service. We were able to move our booking from the roof top to the air conditioned area so they are very accommodating.
Really enjoyable meal, food great, even the poached chicken salad (often salads are not that interesting) and we absolutely loved the cookie dessert 😍 Service excellent too
We arrived early and were told to wait upstairs at the rooftop bar while our table was cleared. 20 minutes later no one had come and grabbed us, so I followed it up with the barman to be told our table had been taken by someone else. They found another table for us on the 2nd floor, we didn't receive any menus for 15 minutes and after repeatedly asking for water (and being told they were waiting for glasses) I just gave up. The food came out quickly once we were able to order and it was amazing. Was planning to stick around for dessert but after failing to receive any attention from the staff we just paid and left. Clearly understaffed for a Saturday night and their fancy seating software is clearly failing as well. Would come back for the food, but not on a sat or Friday night.
Food and drinks were very nice! The only feedback I would have is that we were told at 8:15 that we had to leave as our session was over however we had just ordered a cocktail 10 mins prior so it would have been nice to if we were told when ordering our drinks that our session was almost over. Other than that we enjoyed the meals and venue and would come back.
The pizza was delicious, as was my Pretty Micky Spritz cocktail. Service good but a bit slow with regard to the changing over of water bottles. Being seated on the middle floor and next to a huge window rather than another tableful of diners was a plus. I look forward to a return visit and rooftop dining on a warm summer evening.
The service was not ideal, we were sitting at our table for 30 minutes before being served water and taken drinks orders (even after three people from the table had gotten up to ask the wait staff to serve us). It must be disappointing for the chefs downstairs as the food is delicious - and comes very quickly once our orders were in (only took about 15 minutes for all 11 people to receive their meal after finally ordering). Great service by the manager downstairs, just need a few more waiters working to deal with the service issues upstairs.
Great restaurant. The staff are helpful and attentive, and the food is always of a very high standard. I would definitely go there again. Fantastic views from the roof top terrace and the huge picture window adds to the great modern meets vintage atmosphere. I would highly recommend.
The food was delicious. The restaurant was clean. A little cold but quite nice. Would have preferred a bet seat location, the restaurant wasn't ever full. We booked and got there a lot earlier than most, and stayed longer. mostly it was really nice. James Brayshaw - from the footy show ate not far away from us.
