My 3rd visit and the most disappointing. The standrad of food was well below par as was the selection - it felt like we had come in for left overs and a few knocked together sandwiches. The tiered offer was beyond disappointing the selection so poor i am astounded this was the grand hyatt. The service was poor and slow we opted for free flowing i think the flowing went into the slowest pace even from 4.45 until 5.30 we were ignored and the waitress that was attentive in the first 45 min vanished

We could not have chosen a better venue to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Everything was beyond our expectations. The staff were fabulous, wonderful service and the food was out of this world. We are already planning a high tea for my sister's 60th birthday in July. Thank you to all concerned for making our special day so memorable 🙂

A 5 star restaurant befitting a first class hotel. The rib eye was a quality steak cooked perfectly, the way we requested. The lamb rump was as tender and tasteful as I have ever had the pleasure of consuming. The roasted eggplant was an unexpected delight. The sides were wonderful complements to the mains. And the hero of the meal: any chef that can make brussel sprouts the star in this constellation of fine food is a magician! The service is attentive and unpretentious.

We were 6 of us for my mother’s bday. The service is very polite. However, Food waiting time was long and basic serving cutlery wasn’t provided until we had to ask twice. Other than that the food and dietary requirements were largely met.

Food on offer was different to the menu shown on the website which was disappointing. The service for a venue of such caliber was incredibly disappointing. It took half an hour for us to receive any service to get another drink.

A bit difficult to find among the maze of restaurants inside the hotel - and interestingly the name wasn’t anywhere visible around the restaurant - staff warm and friendly, wouldn’t mind accommodating any extra request - ordered the veal osso buco - extremely tender, marinated well, though without the bone marrow spoon left clients to doubt if they were meant to consume the marrow or not, but the meat was really melting - even the tendinous parts yielded immediately to the cut. The bed of mashed potatoes it rested on somewhat lacked originality but was of course a safe choice. Portions very generous. Unfortunately didn’t find the desserts too tempting so just ended with a coffee. $48 without service charge - not bad at all

Unfortunately I did not enjoy my meal at Collins Kitchen. I ordered the pan fried Barramundi which was quite dry and was not served with a sauce of any kind. It was very expensive at $50. My husband and I had booked the restaurant not knowing that Ladros had "checked in". We had booked many weeks ago and were staying at the Hyatt for our 22nd wedding anniversary and were hoping for a very special night out. It just wasn't to be.

After arriving about 40mins late due to the Melbourne Marathon, we were told we had plenty of time to eat and enjoy as it was my birthday celebration. About 1hr later we were told the buffet was ending (also the dessert bar). The variety of food wasn't as good as it usually was as it didn't have a variety of vegetables. It was mainly meat. The variety was extremely disappointing as it was my birthday and I was so looking forward to it. $205 for 1 hour was a bit rich for what we got.

Wonderful high tea at the grand Hyatt. We try to high tea monthly and this was by far our favourite.
The service was impeccable. Our waitress was so friendly and attentive. Perfection for a special occasion.

For a pop-up restaurant that specializes in meat, it was incredibly disappointing. Meat tasted pre-cooked and reheated. Pork belly dry and rubbery, steak was sent back because it arrived at the table well done instead of medium rare. We also ordered cocktails, but one arrived in a cracked glass. Beautiful restaurant, lovely ambience,shame about the rest.

We wanted to try the food at the Burn City Pop-Up while it was still on. It did not disappoint. The staff were extremely helpful and funny/pleasant to deal with. The food was spot on, we had the platter for two which comes with an assortment of meat and condiments. Delicious! Highly recommend you give it a go before it's gone.

I brought my friend here for her birthday, she loves steak so I thought she would love Collins kitchen. I mentioned on my booking that I would like halal meat, a week later I called the restaurant to double check, they assured me they would order in halal meat specifically for us. When I got there on the day I was informed that the only options we had were chicken and fish. Had we been notified of this earlier I would’ve cancelled my booking and organised something else. My steak loving friend didn’t get steak on her birthday, it was an absolute failure and because of this I don’t think I’ll return.

Halal options aren’t difficult to maintain, it has no effect on the taste of the meat but allows muslims to consume it. I recommend that you move to purchasing halal meat to cater to a wider audience. Or at the very least, don’t promise that it will be there if you can’t deliver.

On top of that, none of the staff really knew what halal was. One guy told us the steak was halal only to be approached seconds later to be told it was not.

Very unprofessional, the food we ordered instead was good but we came specifically for the steak so I’m very dissapointed.

Saw a review for the pop up Burn City Smokers and decided to give it a go. Loved the ambiance of the place, sat in the cocktail bar had a beautiful Amaretto Sour. The food was lovely, the BBQ Beef Rib was mouth watering, we ate a little too much so could not the sample deserts. Would definitely would go back for a Brisket Burger and Chips. It also caters for vego's.

We really enjoyed our Sunday lunch. There were great food choices and the flavours were spot on , especially the lamb cutlets. The dessert section was abit too sweet , missed the truffles and the Turkish delights that the use to have. Looking forward to our next Sunday brunch.
