Friendly waitstaff. More than willing to rectify incorrect drink order. My pasta dish was flavoursome however the pasta was well over cooked. My partner had the duck and said he was underwhelmed by the flavours. Waiter spilled some of my drink on the table which is fine but I feel they should have made some attempt to clean it up. Wait time for food was adequate for how many others were dining. Overall an okay experience but definitely did not live up to the hype of others experiences. Wouldn’t rush back.

We had an extremely nice night at the restaurant dining with the degustation menu. Our waitress was a lovely Spanish girl who made the night a pleasure.
Will definitely be back soon.

The meal we had was delicious, the shared lamb shoulder, but if you don’t like spicy food, the menu was limited, especially if you are vegetarian, including dessert.

We enjoyed the Degustation menu at Bridgewater for our Anniversary dinner. The combinations of flavours were generally excellent, particularly the Kingfish sashimi and Scallops with peanut curry which I would never normally order. Beautiful space with river views and prompt service. Minor discordances were the aircon (a bit too cold) and the wine pairings which sometimes did not quite match.

Food was delicious and service was great. The personality of the waiter matched our table to a T. Do yourself a favour and have the maple quail while it’s on the menu. Duck was also perfect. Our table had a great night!

As a coeliac and needing dairy free it is refreshing to have staff go out of their way to ensure that the menu items are suitable. As everything is freshly made they are happy to modify the dishes to suit dietary requirements or palate choices.
Advance arrangements can be made for special deserts as well. The food was delicious! I'll be going back again

Having visited before and experiencing a flawless service I was very disappointed with my latest experience. We couldn’t access the lift without having to ask for it to be turned on. I was overcharged for drinks. The entree was tasteless. The main was underwhelming. The wait staff were inexperienced and needed prompting to take empty glasses away, and were heard swearing in the staff only area near the seats. The restaurant was loud due to a Christmas party and it was not a nice experience. I would be hesitant to return. The experience was not even comparable to my previous one and extremely disappointing.

Our mains took almost an hour to get to us and had to ask where they were. And when I brought it up our table was basically ignored.

Just a truly wonderful and memorable experience of the cuisinethat fully represented the menu. Not only was the service professional and friendly but the views of the river and ambience of the restaurant was fantastic. I would genuinely recommend this restaurant of fine dining to anyone and everyone. Our office attended the 2021 Melbourne Cup Function, and all 10 of our staff and myself absolultely and totally enjoyed the total dining experience.

Loved the food and staff very pleasant. However, waited over 30 mins for our bottle of wine we ordered. In fact, we finished our entrees before the wine arrived. The only negative in a lovely evening.
