Atmosphere was warm with attentive staff. Ordered rare sirloin Wagyu but have to say not the nicest I have enjoyed. Preferred true Wagyu sirloin form MIYAMURA STATION more.

I went here with a business friend. Great selection of meats. Perfectly prepared. I had the sirloin with the bone. Good wine and beer selection. The IPA was good to start with. The yarra Valley cabernet was a good paring with the meat. The dessert, first cheese and than the donuts. Very nice!

Went here for lunch today, first of all we were seated by the window overlooking the river, very nice except the timber blinds were covered in dust and windows in cobwebs, they have not been cleaned in at least 6 months. Waitress was friendly enough, found very few bottles of Australian Shiraz or Cab Sav on menu, a shame as... More

Went there to celebrate my husband's birthday with another friend. We booked online and when we got there we didnt have to wait but was escorted by one of the servers. When we sat at the table and started looking at the menu, the sommelier approached us and talked about the wines they offered. We had oysters as starters and... More

I've been here a number of times and the food, service and ambience is just faultless. I have never had a better steak anywhere and as for the potato and cabbage gratin......call the paramedics I'm going in for a second helping.

Not used to this type of restaurant (a bit noisy) we managed to have a good time. Together. The food was very good. Attention to the service could be a good investment at times when the Restaurant is very busy.

Probably for a special occasion as this is a pretty nice restaurant, top end prices but top food and the service is exemplary. It is huge and impressive right on the river but eating inside. You pass right by the big kitchen watching the open wood fires cooking large steaks and smelling enticing! All our food was good and it... More
