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.

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.

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).

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

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.

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.

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.

Great location but the food was not at the same level. Nothing really to complain about but the standard was that of a very good pub meal but the prices were not.

Hadn't been here for 12 months and won't bother going back. Whilst the service was fine and very friendly, the food was average at best. It was extremely overpriced pub bistro food and that's not a fancy pub I am referring to, just an ordinary suburban pub, if that.

Ambience great; food only ok - shared platter was a little small could have had extra prawns or served with rolls, chocolate mousse was heavy but tasty; waitress serving the meal was great; waiters taking the order were ordinary - no personality or class, a bit sloppy.

The quality of the food and the service were fine, nothing out of the ordinary, the location and views were very good. The prices on the menu are way above the overall service provided.

The food was very good with every effort made to accommodate a food allergy. However, the service was lacking. We constantly had to ask for water, our next courses and coffee. This coloured our dining experience.

View was good. Food was ok but nothing special. toilets were average. Expensive for what we got. Decoration was redone since we last when and maybe a change of owner. Don't think we will be going back.

$80 bottle chardonnay served at room temperature. Unbelievable. Two orders of lobster and salmon Wellington. In both cases lobster was underprepared and over cooked. Both pastry casings were seriously burnt on the bottom. They should not have left the kitchen. There was no pride in the presentation of these dishes; no attention to detail at all! An unacceptable "dining" experience. First and definitely last!!!!

Although the location is very picturesque, the food was mediocre considering the premium price that was paid. A few things were forgotten it's not accetable when platters go up to 500 dollars

Will not be rushing back. Told no crab or lobster available. Hard to believe from a restaurant on the waterfront that presents a seafood menu. The meals that were selected as second choice were fine. Table service was friendly but attention to detail was lacking.
