Our pride and joy – the climate controlled cellar – houses a considered and ecletic selection of wine. Focusing on the best examples of vintage, variety, style and region, it offers an extensive range from both the New World and the Old.
The menu is designed by Andrew McConnell and Colin Mainds to complement the wine. Whether it be a casual after work snack or the full affair – a stunning chef’s selection showcasing raw seafood, locally sourced produce like Macedon duck and O’Connor beef from Gippsland.
European in atmosphere, the space balances edgy luxe and familiar classic to gorgeous effect. Featuring parquet timber floors, the interior is warm and elegant.
Loved it - as did all the family. We like Cumulus donstairs and upstairs.
Our waiter was on point, matching wine with our order.
The food was just beautiful and the evening was just right.
I loved the ambiance of the restaurant. Lighting for me was a little low but truly a wonderful place.
Fabulous service; Chris treated us like royalty but not in a wanky kind of way!
A fantastic night - great service, food and wine!
If you want to enjoy a great atmosphere, professional and knowledge staff plus excellent food and wine this is the venue for you.
Good service, quality food and overall great set up.
Couldn’t fault anything, perfect night.
Food, service, wine ..... stunning evening
One word: AMAZING!!!
Outstanding food, wine and service! Can’t get enough of this place and already looking forward to our next visit.
We loved the meal, service and location and we’ll be back. The chefs selection was great value for money
we had a pre-theatre lite dinner on a Thursday evening. Food and wine were good and ambience lovely. Menu is a little limited but this is probably typical for a wine bar. Servings were on the small side for the cost but the quality was high. Service was great and we enjoyed the meal.
This was one of our absolute favorite meals. The food was spot on and delicious. The service was fantastic.
Food was up to the same high standard. Efficient and friendly service and a very good wine list.
Fabulous food, wine and service. Highly recommended.
This is my new favourite place in Melbourne. The food is delicious and high quality, the menu changes regularly, the friendly staff are terrific at matching wines to the food ordered, love the relaxed ambience and stylish decor. What’s not to like?
I visited Melbourne for work but met my daughter and her partner for dinner. The ambiance, service and food were outstanding. This is my third recent visit and as always it did not disappoint.
We opted for the chefs selection with matching wines, it was delicious food and wine pairings were perfect all very high quality and superb food! Couldn’t recommend higher for somewhere to celebrate or to take someone you want to impress.
We are regulars at Cumulus (downstairs) and were delighted that upstairs delivered on the food, service and ambience. Couldn’t fault a thing! Was also fantastic that 99% of the food is celiac friendly. We will definitely be back!
Great place, extensive wine list. Staff was very knowledgeable and helpful with recommendations!
The chef's set menu had some outstanding elements, however, the dessert and cheese dish were disappointing.
Great food & outstanding service. Cozy ambience
Lively noisy winebar with seriously good food and, as you would expect, a large local and foreign wine list...however compared to other classy Australian restaurants the quantities poured for the pricey wine seemed ungenerous given the atmosphere, though perhaps quantities were technically correct. However the bill was full of overcharges and this might have been due to the frenetic atmosphere. The wait staff were clearly struggling at times over the noise of crowds and clanging "edgy" warehouse styling of this trendy upstairs dining area above a very successful Melbourne breakfast institution (same name) which is also open for a noisy dinner, even louder downstairs though. Interestingly, when we arrived and accidentally opened the door to the downstairs Cumulus Cafe eatery, we were told the Cumulus Up was the "romantic" venue of the two. Who'd have guessed? So bring your ear trumpet and enjoy some very interesting food and wine menus. By the way, the wine waiter who served and explained stuff to us so well without being haughty was superb!
Excellent food and such perfect service! Thanks for a great night!
We opted to have the feed me menu as it was a special occasion, majority of the food was amazing and the wine pairing was lovely however the mains were disappointing. The fish was rubbery and the spatchcock was returned to the kitchen as it was undercooked.
Loved everything about it, food ambiance and service was great. Only thing I’d say is it’s a little loud, especially if you are trying to chat and have. Quieter dinner.
Beautiful food. Impeccable service. Is expensive, but the price reflects the value and quality of ingredients in the food/drinks. Nice environment, a little bit dark (so minor though) and bathrooms are clean.
The food is the best in Melbourne at this price range. Usually I find fine dining means a lot of money for not much in flavour and little quantity. But this place delivers in quality of food. It can be quite noisy on a busy night due to hard surfaces.
Dinner was great , we tried some of the specials and stye were delicious. Service was attentive and timely and all of the staff were very friendly and knowledgable about both the food and wine. Lovely room with a chilled and relaxed vibe. Thanks we had a great meal
We had a great night! Delicious, and the service was great. Thank you!
Thoroughly enjoyable experience. Some prices a bit exorbitant. What I loathed and felt a little bit ashamed of was the fact that not only is there excessive upselling but when I went to pay you now ask for tips and we have to push a button before we pay. Whilst I can appreciate fine dining, this is not America. I feel ashamed that this culture has even infiltrated your wonderful Australian band and was very taken aback that you were asking for more money for items that were already heavily marked up and already above the minimum wages standards so it remains questionable for the value for money. I will take caution when choosing to dine again.
Exceptional in every way! Looking forward to our next visit already.
Great ambience and spacious environment.
Excellent selection of red wines.
Food was of exceptional quality, although limited in choices.
Noise levels were acceptable, probably expected for a more casual dining.
Overall, highly recommend !!!
Wonderful from start to finish. Great service and simply amazing food.
Lovely experience, great food. Fantastic wine pairings. Great value for tasting menu topped off by fantastic service!
Great little spot that we decided to try as main restaurant Cumulus was not available. We enjoyed great food and wine and the service was friendly and helpful.
A wonderful space, gorgeous food and amazingly helpful staff. The foie gras waffle is a must!
Admittedly, I was trying to stick to a Keto diet, so I didn't immerse myself in all Cumulus had to offer, however what we did try was flavourful, well presented and fresh. The atmosphere was smooth, and would be great for small groups, or something more intimate :)
Beautiful food. Excellent wine. Great service. Great value. A rare mummies night out with the tasting menu was thoroughly enjoyed.
Enjoyed finding a city restaurant with novel cuisine.
Menu: Not sure the flank was the best choice; a little of that 'old meat' flavor coming through and less than tender, as we were warned by the waiter. Service from the waiter was remarkably attentive.
Must say the WBTG offering was pretty limited; compared with the full wine list.
A little alarmed when the chair allocated almost collapsed, which could have resulted in an injury.
Otherwise an enjoyable 2 hours with you all.
Food and service were fantastic. We had the “menu” which was well balanced and gave us plenty to eat.
The suggested wine perfectly complimented the meal.
Fantastic food and wine, as well as excellent digestif selection. Only downside was that all the hard surfaces in the restaurant make it very noisy while busy!
