Beautiful location, comfortable setting. Service was faultless. The food was just slightly disappointing, mainly because I had booked with a dietary requirement that wasn't met. Overall I would still recommend this venue to others.
A very special experience with great food, service and surroundings.
I dined with my two colleagues. We were greeted immediately on arrival and handed over to our waiter. We all made alterations to our meal that were easily managed without fuss.
Food was well presented and excellent taste.
Waiters were friendly and in some cases funny that made the evening more memorable.
High tea was very poor. Odd flavours in some of the sweets, sandwiches were plain and a few of the items were dry/over cooked. Service was okay. Setting was nice.
Too many sweets not enough savouries. A bit of a sugar overload.
Really didn’t enjoy the food. Service from Jade was wonderful. Lots of mistakes still.
Very average, unprofessional service. Food was very average. We eat at a lot of nice places. Not sure if we had a bad service person, or if it was a bad night for food on this occasion. 3 stars.
The food was amazing. Especially the dessert and scallop ceviche. Would like to see a broader cocktail menu. But recommend this place for food and service.
We had high tea for a baby shower and it was lovely. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and fantastic value .
Service and overall setting was outstanding, it’s just a shame the high tea itself was overly poor. Scones were hard, cakes were dry and macaron not soft and chewy.
I’ve been previously before for lunch and dinner and not had a problem with the meals.
Just wouldn’t recommend the high tea.
The timing of the high tea was very poorly run. We were seated at 2:30 our food didn’t come out until 320pm,
we didn’t get our hot drinks
Until after food at 4:10pm which was disappointing. It wasn’t overly busy but very slow service. There was ample amount of food which was delicious we also got the sparking on arrival which was wonderful but did have to ask for water to be topped up. The fact we all pre booked & high tea items can be prepared we are unsure why it was so slow.
Lovely afternoon tea with a nice selection of sweet and savory items . Good value for money.
Hi Maree, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of our High Tea. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed yourself and look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Excellent food, service, and setting. Thoroughly recommended for High Tea.
Hi Cathie, Thanks for taking the time to leave a lovely review or core restaurant and bar and our High Tea. We are very proud of our offering so your feedback is greatly appreciated. We hope to welcome you back again soon.
The food was Devine for the high tea however perhaps not enough savoury options.
The service was great but did have to ask for my tea after 45mins.
Meals were far too small and when we were presented with the bill we were overcharged $20 for a bottle of wine it was resolved in the end. Could not understand what the waiters were saying when introducing each course. Extremely disappointed
Amazing food , not huge meals but left feeling comfortable
Hi Tracy, Thanks for your review of core restaurant and bar. We hope to welcome you back again soon.
Food drinks and ambiance were amazing, the wait we had was lovely but when clearing our table between courses for our degustation he would take our plates and set back down our dirty knife and fork, there was no explanation for any of our food or wine, he may have been new or it may have been a cultural thing, but other than that we had a lovely evening!
Pizza burned and kimchi overdose! The meal was a major disappointment.
Extremely dedicated staff. Wonderful gastronomic experience, with pork belly and beef brisket that just melt in the mouths!
Outstanding our waiter was attentive and informative the food was delicious as for the desserts - sublime
Unfortunately would not recommend unless significant changes are made.
Wine and water was spilt as it is was poured with no offer to clean up. Waiter reached acros food to replace used cutlery?
Food was well presented, duck enjoyable, pork dry as was addition to the brisket. Portion size small with no option to add vegetable side dishes
Great food, especially the scallop ceviche and octopus terrine. Service was very good too, just needs a bit of music to improve the ambiance and atmosphere. Overall very, very good.
Exquisite degustation, loved every dish
Service was very good, food was average, pub quality food for restaurant prices, entrees very tasty but main course very disappointing. Not your quieter conversation dinner venue, restaurant is VERY noisy.
The noise was a little loud for our likings and we had the chefs selection which was amazing
Absolutely fabulous Dinner & exceptional service
One of the best dining experiences we’ve had recently - the food was delicious, great wine list, and service was exceptional.
We were promptly seated and introduced to our waiter Amit who immediately made us feel relaxed and welcome. The food menu was enticing and provided a good cross-section of local fare. The drinks menu offered a good selection of local wines and beers. The food was very tasty and creatively displayed reflecting the professionalism and artistry of the chef. A very pleasant evening in the centre of Hobart.
We were very disappointed in our visit. Core restaurant? We just felt like we were at a food court rather than a core restaurant at a 4-star hotel. Staff spent around 10 minutes to get a wipe to clean the table and never changed the correct cutlery for us.
Good afternoon, thanks for sharing your feedback. We are sorry that your experience was not up to the standard we pride ourselves on. I hope you will give us another chance to turn that around as we continue to learn and grow.
