    Went here for my birthday dinner, the place was amazing. When we first sat down the sun was shining right into us but as soon as we notified staff they were fast acting to put the shades down. The service was good, the lady made it clear about payment methods regarding the bill before we’d even sat down which I thought was great so there was no confusion later. The speed of service was also great considering there were 12 of us all waiting for our meals. The food was delicious, no one had anything they didn’t like. Also just wanted to add that I had the pavlova for dessert and it was divine. The cocktails were also really nice and I would definitely come back!

    ordered drinks and they didn’t come together didn’t get my drink until they interrupted me halfway through my meal. After our meal we proceeded to lay where we we’re ignored by a lady who was the so called supervisor, and about 5 staff was not a nice experience

    Although the staff were lovely, the service was lacking. We waited 20min for drinks with no one else inside the restaurant and eventually had to ask for our drinks. Entrees only one came out and we had to ask and wait 15min for the second. The soup of the day we were told was Tomato but we were served corn. The seafood linguini was lovely but very small for a main. Overall not very impressed

    My meal was nice I had the seafood pasta, my fiancées calamari tasted like a packet job. After we had our mains delivered we were forgotten about, we wanted dessert had to flag the waitress down to get a menu & then couldn’t get any attention to place the order. A very disappointing end to our evening.

    We were looking forward to our dinner at CORE. Unfortunately it didn't leave us wanting to return. While the staff were friendly, we were offered a table that hadn't been and subsequently was not cleared/cleaned from previous use. We weren't offered menus or water. Our appetisers, entree and main meal was served all at once. The T-Bone meal was unfortunately extremely underseasoned and overcooked, chicken dish was very tasty. The whole experience was quite underwhelming. The view was lovely and blankets were a nice touch.

    This was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had in Hobart. The service was appalling. After flapping our arms around to get someone to take our wine order, a “waiter” turned up with a bottle, dumped it unopened in an ice bucket, and walked off. Getting someone to take our food order required getting up and asking someone to come to the table. To be fair there was one waitress who was attentive (in the end) but I would never go there again!

    Stunning venue at Crown Plaza. Vert attentive service and lovely ambience. Only fault would be the vege's were cold when they were served. Ditto the chips. Other than that, it was very good. We will definitely go back though.

    Gorgeous food, gorgeous location! The pasta dishes were overworldly. I think the music could've been a little less upbeat; it was very distracting for an intimate dinner setting.

    Two pasta dishes were nice but pizza was made wrong and then re done and came out raw. $26 for the pizza with $6 added to add chicken even though one ingredient was removed due to allergy. Ended up only eating topping of pizza

    Sensational. Delicious food. The atmosphere felt relaxed and the views were amazing. Staff were friendly, helpful and catered for non drinkers. I was made a yummy mock tail. Even though I was in Hobart I felt like I could have been in Paris…that’s what a great atmosphere does.

    Excellent service. Was very polite and patient with our elderly guest. We received 4 meals then waited a further 10 minutes for our senior guest to receive her main meal and my turkish bread. Couldn't taste anything else in my caesar salad due to the grilled chicken tasting like everything else that had been cooked on the grill that day. Everything ok. Nice environment and great service let down by poor food. It was mothers day.

    Overpriced food with small servings. Steak was more expensive than the Ball and Chain, possibly the dearest in Hobart. No condiments, salad was small and mediocre. Wouldn’t go again for the food which was certainly nothing to rave about.
