Tried the chef selection menu. Most of the dishes were good but nothing to write home about.

Kingfish dish you can probably find at any other restaurant, not much creativity.
Potatoes mouse with crab was probably the most savory dish of the evening.
Suckling pig again was good... But could get that at any Chinese restaurant.

Staff service was superb though

Food and service were outstanding. We had the duck to share and it was simply fantastic. Definitely recommended when you want to get a ridiculous food and to be really spoiled by great staff. Five stars all the way!

Awesome place to have Sunday lunch. Food is always amazing, great variety in the degustation. Customer service is impeccable. Little on the expensive side if you also go with matching wines, but well worth it.

We honestly had one of the best experiences, the waitress (I wish we got her name) had above and beyond service! We always order different dishes but share so we get to enjoy as much of the menu as possible. Never have we had a restaurant 1/2 the one meal and serve it up on two plates for us, with the presentation still immaculate! We also had to leave the early as I was unwell, with out any hesitation the rest of our order was cancelled with no charge and she offered to call us a taxi home- we will 100% be back to dine with you again! Thank you!

Food was interesting and excellent, was a bit concerned that set Sunday lunch might be lacking attention to detail but that was not the case. Wait staff were really helpful but not overbearing. Had a great experience. Have been for dinner recently where the food seemed a bit rushed and service a bit lacking but this lunch was excellent

I went to Cutler & Co as a recommendation from a friend who’s from Melbourne. I am from San Francisco. I chose the prix fix chefs selection. Each dish was fine, but nothing was great. Given the hype and the price I expected much more.

The space was beautiful, my service was excellent, and their wine selection was lovely.

It was just the food that was very disappointing. I kinda just wanted it to be over as soon as it started.

Great food overall. The entrees a little bit too small in quantity and probably more choices need to be add on the menu. Main was great. Their sourdough warm and crunchy was the star of the night for me and I would like to learn how they prepare it. Really good.

We are from the UK and saw an amazing write up in a UK magazine so decided to try- my initial booking was cancelled as I lost email connection but after arriving and finding my booking had been cancelled I was a little annoyed however the front of house manager with the most equisite accent and professionalism organised a table and we had an unforgettable meal.

Great food, nice atmosphere, good wine list, and great service. I was usually find it interesting to discuss with the Sommelier about different bottles of wine and what would match the food. She was friendly but she wasn't able to tell me much about a couple of Burgundy producers on the list that I had not previously tried. I would still go back as I enjoyed the bottle I chose.

The staff were very welcoming upon entering the restaurant. Requested for a change of table near the kitchen, the waiter was accommodating and managed to get one although our reservation was last minute (booked 2hrs before dining).
Ambience is relaxed and food is always exceptional. Service is excellent. Wine selection is outstanding (sommelier is happy to recommend great wines).
Thank you Cutler & Co for an amazing evening.
