A really lovely place for a pre-theatre dinner. Service was warm and attentive, and the food was delicious.
We chose the pre-theatre two course meal, which was prompt, exactly the right amount of food and quite enjoyable. It was also an excellent price, especially as the quality of the food was so high.
Will absolutely return when seeing another show at the Regent Theatre.

The new fish of the day is a while stuffed baby barramundi. Absolutely delicious. The flesh was perfectly cooked, moist, flavoursome, perfectly seasoned, and did not have the muddy flavour that barramundi sometimes has.
The chips were also deliciously crispy and must have been double or triple fried. Very moreish.
I would have given a perfect score if it wasn't for my t-bone steak, which was a bit overcooked and tough. It still had good flavour though.
The lavender ice cream is just gorgeous. I could eat a whole bucket of it.
The bar also does an excellent aperol spritz.

My wife and I had come from Sydney for a special occasion with son and daughter-in-law. Excellent food, imaginative but harmonious and not over elaborate; attentive but not intrusive service; wine list more than adequate but not overwhelming. Memorable occasion.

We had "high cheese" here and it was very nice. There was only one cheese selection that was a little unpalatable - perhaps the strawberry did something to the cheese? Otherwise a very delicious selection. Others in our party ordered the meal and it was deemed adequate, perhaps a little small for the price.

Wow what a an experience. Came here for my birthday. We indulged in High Cheese. The amount of food does not look like it's sufficient but neither one of us could finish our share. It was delectable. As for all the wait staff particularly Kodi whose service was outstanding thank you for excellent service and attention to detail. High Cheese is a must!

The rockling with clams, mussels, pippis, and roasted fennel in a fish bouillabaisse was particularly good tonight. The clams were big and meaty, the mussels perfectly cooked as usual and a very generous piece of rockling tonight. The dish was really flavoursome, fresh, healthy, and perfectly seasoned. My vegan dining companion was very happy with her cauliflower steak too.

Always love eating at Allegro. The service is great and I love their modern Australian menu. Especially the pan fried fish fillet with pippis, clams, and mussels. The 450g rib-eye is also always reliably good.

The lobby lounge is also great for a quiet drink.

Cheese overload. Food OK but far too much cheese and nothing to cut the cheese flavour with. Would have loved some fresh or dried fruit to eat with the cheese.

My partner and I really enjoyed the evening. Our High Chese was very well presented and delicious. Our only suggestion would be to offer a sorbet or perhaps some fruit to cleanse the pallet midway through.

The atmosphere was dead and sterile with lights up and no character at all. The high cheese was the biggest disappointment. Cold and dry scones, stale chouix pastry, cold Brie, baked Camembert not hot, that’s as far as we got before deciding to leave. To charge $70 per person for what was presented to us is laughable and pretty embarrassing. I was especially disappointed as I had planned this as a special evening for me and my girlfriend before I leave the country for 6 months.

We booked for a pre-concert dinner and were delighted at the quality of the food and the polite and attentive service we received. The restaurant is spacious and quiet and we completed our meal in plenty of time to attend our performance at the Athenaeum. It really is excellent value and we were surprised so few other concert-goers were in attendance.
We definitely will be back.

The 450g rib-eye steak steak was beautifully charred and caramelised and the meat was tender, pink, juicy, and full of flavour. Especially when eaten together with the deliciously sweet jus it was served with. The accompanying bone marrow croquet was a scrumptious deep fried crunchy ball filled with rich, golden, velvety goodness.

The white chocolate brownie bar with berry sorbet is perfect. Order it! A perfectly balanced rich, sweet, tart, satisfyingly dense, cakey, and crispy desert.

We arrived for our pre-theatre meal last night to a very friendly, professional waitor. He was excellent and attentive.

Thanks to the chef, and unfortunate for our waitor, he had to advise us that one of the three dishes wasn't available.

After ordering, we were told that the chef wasn't happy with the fish (it was either off or he burnt it). Instead, we had a choice of steak, or an eggplant dish. The eggplant was INEDIBLE. DISGUSTING. This is not the standard the Westin should be at.

Frankly food was mediocre. Service is very slow. I was not at all impressed With dinner. Tried breakfast and it was even worse. Service was terrible, coffee lukewarm and the food not particularly tasty. For $40 Australian I would expect a much much better experience, Specially because they’re a good eateries at every corner

We have been very happy with Allegro Restaurant in the past. However, the lamb main dish was very small and the greens which accompanied the snapper were stringy. We also heard a couple at the next table with the same complaints.

We expected more from this place. The staff were either good or terrible - the guy who looked after us was really good, but the waitress tried to take my plate away before I had even finished eating. We found a brilliant white wine from Margaret River on the menu, the mains were OK, but the dessert was really good. So overall really mixed - and we think there are much better options in Melbourne.

We began our evening with a couple of glasses of bubbly in the lobby bar which was very welcoming. The staff were friendly and efficient.The prices were on par. Our dinner in Allegro was fabulous. The staff were , again, the icing on the cake. friendly, welcoming and accommodating when our friends were a bit late. The meal was all the more enjoyable as we did not feel pressured to hurry. Nor did the staff treat us as if they were doing us a favour by letting us eat there! The food was awesome.
