simply.... amazing!! Fantastic service, great food, amazing wine! What more could you possibly ask for! Took my girlfriend there on our first date and reminisced by taking her back a year later, did not disappoint:-)
Had a great night - a farewell dinner for a staff member. The food was great and the service excellent. It was great being able to watch the activity on the pier with a cruise ship and the Tasmanian ferry.
Service was very good,did not wait long when ordering drinks and food, waitress was good when being asked about menu,on the whole we had a wonderful evening.
On arrival we were greated with a friendly staff and taken to our seat that had a superb view of the bay, Location. On receiving our meals the food did not disappoint it was delicious.
The restaurant décor was nice the music wasn't too loud and view looking out over Port Phillip Bay with the sunset and the spirit of Tasmania departing made for a pleasant night. The staff were very friendly and the food was really nice I had the steak which was cooked to my request and my wife had the whole baby snapper which she enjoyed and my daughter had the salmon fillet which we all had a taste of and agreed it was also very nice. The range of cocktails was suitable and they also had a very good list of wine and beers. I would be happy to recommend the Waterfront to anyone.
Awesome food and surroundings! My wife and I decided to celebrate our anniversary at Waterfront Port Melbourne and been pleasantly surprised by what they had to offer. Had a lovely time dining, while also enjoying the surroundings. Would definitely be visiting again!
Food was good and well prepared and presented. However, the place has lost its mojo. There is no vibe to the place anymore so we were disappointed in the dining experience. The layout and table settings need to revert to the original style which had table clothes, table decoration and a feeling of relaxed fine dining. The place has more a barn feel to it. The music was a little to loud and was not the appropriate mix for this type of place. The owners need to engage a adviser on the styling of the place to bring back the feeling to what was cold and not inviting. The day was saved by the food quality and the good service we received by the waitress.
The food was fabulous and enjoyed by all at our table. There were a number of items listed on the menu that weren't available. Our waiter was professional and offered exceptional replacement items instead. It was unfortunate that we had to walk past two big dumpster bins and construction wire fencing before getting to the restaurant entry. Once inside, the atmosphere was opulent as expected, and the ambience perfect.
We had a lovely time. We happened to be sitting next to the owners and they were very friendly and generous. We originally were out along the deck area, but it was a bit warm and they were happy to move us inside.
We had a wonderful time at waterfront restaurant, the scenary was beautiful and the foods was delicious and the service was spot on. We will definitely comeback when we have a chance, thanks.
Tasty selection of starters Fish served was generous slightly cooked more than preferred Service excellent after confusion over booking which was completed on internet as required, but they seemed to be running two sites, but sorted after initial confusion
Nice venue with good views. The food was good, with sufficient variety, particularly for a group with varying tastes and ages. Service was good, with staff attentive and having a happy demeanour (a smiling face goes a long way).
We had a table for 6 outside it was a great day. Food was delicious service was excellent. Extensive wine list. Would recommend. Would be a great venue to take overseas visitors.
The staff were lovely, very attentive and polite. But the decor and music are so wrong for a restaurant on the water. It's got accents of Turkish or Moroccan and appears confused and it looks cheap. Two of our dishes were not very appetising, the Morton bay bug risotto was lovely. The food and menu promised a lot but didn't really deliver.
Lovely restaurant, great service, food and ambience. Just seemed a little quiet on the night we were there .. Suggest you get a table with a water view - simply stunning
From the moment we walked into the restaurant, we found the staff were extremely friendly and attentive to our needs and requests. The food was presented to a very high standard. Overall we had a great night.
food was excellent. special menu for valentines day was great. service was a little bumpy with waiters confused as to which tables they needed to deliver plates to. repeatedly had waiters wandering around trying to figure out which table they were supposed to serve food to.
The entree was 'a seafood tasting ' small and tasteless! .main course was very good (salmon) though on the small side. Dessert was also very good. Wine was quite acceptable. Service was attentive and the ambience pleasing on the sunny day that we were there.
Food and service were fantastic. Cannot fault either area. Window seat overlooking water, however table placed right in front of pillar obscuring view. Toilets were not 100% clean and missing amenities e.g. Toilet paper. Overall still a lovely place for a special Occassion.
A very nice restaurant and the food was delicious. Good service as well. We don't like oysters, so we asked them to delete them from the entre platter. We would go again without hesitation.
