Exquisite dining experience with wonderful food and an enormous variety of wines / spirits / cocktails. The excellent atmosphere combined with the private dining experience lends itself to a truly romantic venue.

Great food, wine and staff. The atmosphere is lively without being too much. We did find the music a notch too loud so there was a bit of loud talking at our table. Overall we love The Toff

Our dinner party had a vegan, vegetarian and a ceoliac. There was plenty of food on the menu to cater to all dietry requirements. Friendliest staff and great environment for dining out. Thankyou.

We were running 40mns late for our 7 o'clock 'booth' booking, and the Staff did a great job of finding us another booth within 10mns of arriving, as they only hold booth reservations for I think 20mns? Mind you they may want to make sure that they answer their phone, as I was trying continuously to contact them to let them know that I was running half n hour later. But never the less the Staff were great! : )

Cosy, cute, hip and gorgeous wait staff. Nice menu and select of drinks. An improvement would be the doors closing better on the carriages as pedestrians from the rooftop cinema are noisy and jaywalk all around the Toff as they look for friends and get in your intimate dining space. So more privacy would be an important improvement.

The food is to die for! I love the stage coach dining cars, very quaint. Great range of cocktails. My only complaint, the music is way too loud. When I eat out with friends, I want to be able to have a conversation, and not yell. We asked for the music to be turned down, which they did, but it was still too loud. Will be back though.

Five of us booked on Friday night at short notice for 6pm and there was plenty of room. It was confusing on the web which restrauant we were booking at Curtin house for we were looking to book for cookies. The meal portions were medium but tasty, the calamari was chewy and there were no sides on the plate. The atmosphere was great but probably would not go back.

The cocktails and food were terrific. The music was a wonderful addition, and the carraige room booths are fun. The only negative is that the cocktails are very expensive, basically $20 each. But they're made with care and excellent ingredients. However, if you want to really drink the night will cost hundreds.

Amongst the myriad of cool bars and hip joints in Melbourne The Toff is a constant. If you can snag a booth it's the best of both worlds - a buzzy atmosphere but still a sense of intimacy where you can actually hear what your mates are saying.

Great little restaurant for dates or catch ups with friends. Wide variety of food and drink available. Lots of cocktails, a whole page of Old Fashioned's. Fair few beers on offer, but more at Cookie. The booths are awesome for a sense of privacy and private dining.

Great service and beautiful food. Our waiter offered to choose the dishes on our banquet. We told him our likes and dislikes and his selection was fantastic. Great place - will be back.

Great food, great service and great ambience - will definitely return! We chose to do the banquet and the food was spicy but divine...couldn't finish it as much as we'd wanted to :)

The staff are always super friendly and personalise the experience by sharing what their favourites are on the menu. The menu does change, but the food and flavours are always stunning!!

It is a very nice restaurant bar. There is a dance floor, and the acoustic equipment is top class in Melbourne! The food was also delicious. I want to go again.

Great atmosphere....and terrific food! Best Massaman Curry on the planet! The booths were very comfortable and private. Thought we had wandered onto the set of an exotic film! We'll be back!

A great night at Toff in Town watching Broads launch their new single, preceded by dinner at Choo Choos. We let the waitress choose the dishes, and she did so perfectly.

Great food perfect drinks and excellent service. There's a bar, restaurant. Live music and then head up to a rooftop bar on a perfect night. What more could you want?

Atmosphere and service is always great. Most the dishes were as well, but they are small and that pork neck sausage had some seriously surprising fire! 🌶🌶🌶
