Great service and atmosphere - attentive and friendly staff. Enjoyed immensely
Very fun night out, good food and great atmosphere
Lovely lunch and excellent service. In some ways it's great to be able to hear each other talk in restaurants these days!
I really enjoyed the experience. It was a lovely birthday lunch b
It was amazing, we enjoyed ourselves once again. Thank you Rabi
Our local favourite delivers as always! Fabulous.
Expensive menu, charged multiple surcharges we weren’t made aware of at time of booking or when sitting down to eat. Felt like we were charged the absolute maximum possible in our short sitting time. Customer service was unfortunately poor and our dining experience was therefore very average. Won’t return in a hurry.
A wonderful Melbourne dining establishment that never fails to disappoint. The lamb shoulder was superb!!!
Gorgeous venue, service, and food. Will definitely be back. The leek tart was to die for!
The food was beautiful and I would go back there to try further dishes. Social distancing was well handled. The service was a bit patchy in that we had to wait over 30 minutes to get the bill after asking for it at least twice before the waiter finally retrieved it for us after asking for a third time.
Had an amazing time. Food & ambience was great. Do save some spot for the dessert. Will be returning soon
Requested different table-cramped seating next to a pole is not suitable, nor does it create a relaxed, pleaseant atmosphere to enjoy lunch. Calamari was delicious, angel hair crab pasta was disappointing-dry with not much crab. Found bottle wine to be VERY EXPENSIVE eg Shaw and Smith sauv blanc cost $24.95 at Dan Murphy, Botanical charges $68!!!!
I'd stick to a simple lunch of burgers/1 drink next time-overall too expensive-not worth the $ for a lunch.
The food was great but be warned that they are charging a public holiday surcharge (on a regular day) and a COVID19 levy, which made our bill very expensive. The food is great, but not worth the additional surcharge.
Great dining experience under difficult circumstances. Staff were very attentive.
We both ordered the Burgers and they were just warm , dry and overall substandard
Had oysters to start, very fresh and tasty. Then shared the shared lamb, it was delicious.
Great ambience, delicious seafood dishes and service! Happy hour champagne was the perfect cherry on top
Love the vibe, good old fashioned service & pride in what they do.
Great music in the bar too!
Very disappointed with my meal.
I had the burger which was very salty and would not rate as a special meal .
Disappointed also that you do not carry normal coke out of a can or bottle as the coke from the tap is lollie water and inappropriate for the restaurant section.
Just some positive feedback.
Our previous experience at your restaurant was great that is why I chose it for Valentine’s Day however didn’t end up as very special unfortunately.
The service was beyond amazing but unfortunately we found the food to be pretty average. I hardly touched my steak in the end. Maybe our expectations were too high but considering the price your paying you do expect it to be quality food.
Service and food was amazing, great atmosphere too! Will defer back
Amazing food, great decor & ambiance. Level of service matched the food..exemplary. The angel hair linguine with fresh truffle was a 10/10...nice touch having the chef come out and shave the truffle over the dish at the table. Highly recommend the Bot.
$68 dollar steak didn’t live up to expectations. Over cooked ( ask medium rare) t-bone with a bit of grilled lettuce on a plate
Family get together including a five year old who was well catered for with suitable children’s food. Adults shared the steak which was very tender and tasty and accompanied by interesting vegetables. The desserts were lovely.
Love the Botanical! It never disappoints on food, service and ambience!! The bombe Alaska...superb!
We had Saturday lunch here to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. The food and service were great. If I was going to offer how it could possibly have been better, I'd say that as I called ahead to let them know it was her birthday, it would have been ideal to have gotten her name and wished her a happy birthday (using her name) on arrival. We were lucky enough to get this at The Four Seasons on Moscow last year - and it was only a drink.
This was our first visit, post Paul Wilson! The food was average and the portions were rather small. The wine service and range was excellent. Service overall was attentive.
Very enjoyable evening to see the new year in. Service was excellent and the food well presented with a good wine list. Thank you
Service was poor, food was poor quality. Not recommended
Fantastic food and wine experience. I will definitely return.
It was our end of year Book Club meeting where we choose a restaurant to go to and discuss the books for the following year. I had visited the Botanical 4 weeks before to explain the situation and request a round table which was far easier for discussion especially with 60 and 70 years old women! When we arrived we were on a rectangular table but after a short discussion with the manager this was rectified and we were moved to a round table. $25 for steak, fries, salad and a glass of wine is a winner and those who chose something else were very happy. Happy Hour extends to 7pm and $15 Billiecart champagne was very nice! Look forward to going back next year! Regards Penny
Steak night great value and good quality. Wait staff were accommodating in letting us stay past our allotted booking time.
I gotta say I reckon the house burger was the best damn burger I've had in my life! And lemmie tell you, I've been around awhile and I've downed a lot of burgers in my time! My waistline is a testament to that! My partner had the leak tart and it was also to die for, however I would say a bit on the small side. I had the choctop for dessert which was fabulous and my partner had chocolate mousse with honeycomb. It was a work of art to look at, but a bit overpriced by my standards. The waiter was fabulous and fun, not intrusive, and when he asked what we were celebrating and was told my partners birthday, dessert came with a candle and he sang happy birthday. A really nice touch.
Fantastic food and wine great place with friends. Enjoy the experience
Great selection of food on their menu. Wine list is superb with a heap of quality wines to select.
Staff will go above and beyond to look after all who go and dine. Amazing service!
Beautiful bar out back to keep the night going if you desire. Will continue to eat and enjoy many more night here to come.
Took a friend to Thursday steak night. She is a student so I knew she could afford $25 for steak, French fries, salad and glass of wine. We enjoyed the meal and the chance to catch up in such a pleasant environment.
Front of house staff were excellent. Food delivery was dreadful as we had to wait at every turn. We arrived at 7pm. Entrees arrived 7.30pm and mains at 8.50. No explanation and no apology. At the price charged, we should be able to expect better. Very disappointing experience.
We love steak night at your hotel and return every 3 or 4 months! It was a little too noisy this visit but it's not usually too bad.
The food is excellent, although the menu is fairly limited. The winelist is phenomenal but there are few bottles less than $100. Service, while attentive, was slow even though the restaurant was not full. We suspect that this was deliberate so we'd drink (poand spend) more. If you visit, be aware of this. Our experience was good; it could have been great.
