    The place is terrific and the wait service was good, the only negative was all our food came at once and the mains were not hot, the flavours were excellent.

    Slow service, drinking water out of paper cups, incomplete dishes being sent out of the kitchen as they ran out of ingredients with no apology. Wouldn’t go back

    The food, ambience & service at our table was very good but unfortunately the service at the main desk with one of the girls was a little abrupt at times. Also, when we went up to order our food we were told we couldn't order until 1.15pm without any explanation as to why & there were other tables that had ordered & were getting their food. Admittedly, it was 12.45pm & I had booked the table for 1pm but we came in earlier to do our gin tasting before eating, but we were getting hungry & didn't think there would be a problem ordering. We have never heard of having to wait to order food or been told to come back later, ever! Once we did order our food came out very quickly & was delicious so we couldn't fault that.

    23rd Street DistilleryResponded on 3 July 2022Hi Tania, Thankyou for taking the time to review your dining experience. We make every effort to space our lunch bookings as best we can to ensure all our customers have a great dining experience. We admit, the staff endeavours to coordinate and maintain orders did get overwhelmed at the peak of lunch on the long weekend but they quickly recovered. Your feedback was addressed in our review of the long weekend as we aim to ensure it doesn't reoccur. Thank you for your feedback.

    We had arrived for dinner with great expectations as the day before the carpark was full and brimming of people. Unfortunately, after looking over the menu, we found the prices for the entrees to be exorbitant ($25 ea)and my partner's main dish (cauliflower steak) was very underwhelming in size and taste. On a more positive note the gentleman who served us was quite attentive and very apologetic when we raised our issues with him. However, we will not be returning nor recommending to friends.

    23rd Street DistilleryResponded on 3 July 2022We are sorry to hear your concerns on our pricing and value. Our pricing is reflective of our choice to source local ingredients. We make every effort to support the smaller local suppliers and growers in the Riverland area as this is very important to who we are as a regional hospitality business. We understand and appreciate your feedback.

    Was really looking forward to finally visiting my favourite gin distillery. Drinks/ tastings were great but was quite disappointed with the lack of food options. Pizza oven wasn’t working so we chose two other options from the limited menu. One of those options wasn’t available so it left maybe one thing to choose from. I had the squid which was a slightly strange dish, and didn’t come with any lemon or aioli.. just rocket, chilli , bacon. When I asked for some lemon I received the tiniest piece 😁 But I still enjoyed the afternoon and the drinks/tasting was magnificent. Worth the visit !

    We were told numerous times that they were really busy, however we had booked. Our drinks were brought out without mixers and dumped on the table, after10 minutes we had to ask for them. No meals came out at the same time my husband asked for no onion his pizza which finally came out a hour after we ordered (and everyone had eaten by this time) with onion and was cold. No one knew what tables food was going to. The good staff were ruined by the surliness of others. Not good and we have been previously without these issues.

    The food was ok, service indifferent but the atmosphere was like a cafeteria with trestle tables in a big open room that had loud music and noisy acoustics. It did not live up to the fine dining that we expected from the online menu and prices. More photos of the interior would help people to know what to expect

    It was obvious that they were understaffed - we waited over an hour for food and 40 minutes for a round of drinks. The pizzas were undercooked with sparse toppings. Very young staff and didn’t seem to have a system.

    We had a 12.45 booking. Food didn’t come out until after 2pm including kids meals. Drinks were also over a 30min wait. We had multiple meals completely missed with the last of our food only arriving at 3pm. The wait staff were great but there was a distinct lack of management.

    Clean and well kept outside grassed area for lunch with umbrellas over tables. Service was prompt and friendly, and a good selection on food and drinks menu. Hand cut wedges very flavourful, pizzas very nice but potato/blue cheese pizza a little on dry side. Enjoyable way to pass the time.

    We chose the courtyard for lunch but the staff had reserved a table for us inside, good choice as it was a bit cool & windy. Burger, Corn Fritters & fries were all delicious. Staff were fabulous. Gin tasting was great! Would’ve loved to go for dinner but we were leaving before they opened on Thursday.

    Disappointed, menu cut to just pizzas and a chicken paella,used to have a great menu! Was even given wooden cutlets to cut my pizza and paper cups for our water?? What is going on, seems like they are concentrating on selling just alcohol and forgetting about the food and service????? So Disappointed

    23rd Street DistilleryResponded on 17 March 2022Hi Peter, Thank you for taking the time to provide a review. This was only for the Long Weekend - a weekend of high volumes of visitors. Our aim here in temporarily reducing the menu and using disposable was purely to avoid delays in service. Delays in food service was our number one complaint last long weekend. Our Head Chef has taken your feedback onboard, agrees and is looking to provide the full menu for the upcoming Easter Long Weekend.

    Thank you so much for your service especially when trying to work out which vodka I had had at the Gilbert Street Hotel. Everyone is so friendly, the food was delicious, I had the Smoked Salmon. Hopefully once more Covid-19 restrictions are lifted, we'll be able to do a tour of the distillery. Thank you again for making the end of my 30th birthday celebration a big one! Chris Tamits.
