Cutler & Co
Opened in February 2009 by Chef Andrew McConnell, the restaurant reflects his passion for exceptional and often unusual produce. Cutler & Co. has most recently been awarded 2 hats by The Age Good Food Guide 2016.
Andrew’s only fine dining venue, Cutler & Co. strikes a balance between elegance and simplicity with service that is welcoming and relaxed without compromising on attention to detail.
The flexibility of the dining room encourages leisurely family lunches, corporate dining, appetisers and drinks at the bar, pre-theatre dinners or a full degustation experience.
For a truly memorable occasion the restaurant can also be hired for exclusive functions such as weddings, work events or engagement parties.
Fantastic experience for a romantic night. Dishes were excellent. The duck breast was the best duck I've ever had. Great service and an amazing setting. Definitely an expensive dinner experience but one I was happy to pay for. Overall I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you appreciate fine dining and good wine.
Fantastic service and food was delicious. We had Sunday set menu and I highly recommend it to anyone.
My partner and I had high expectations of cutler&co, but unfortunately, we left the establishment unimpressed. We had the Sunday 85pp menu. To be fair, the mains (scotch fillet and fish) were well cooked but that was it. Everything else was mediocre at best. The oysters and desert were really disappointing. I can get better oysters at Queen Vic Market. For dessert, we had the Mandarin Curd icecream - really disliked the fact that the translucent skin of the orange was left on, it was hard to chew and as a dish, it lacked finesse. Did not like the warm chocolate tart as well. It was rich, but not the good kind. There was a dollop of prolly sour cream at the side but it did nothing to balance the dish. Wished we had a different experience.
Amazing food, very knowledgeable staff and great wine list
A little disappointing, given the price and hype. Mains a little fatty and underwhelming.
Disappointed that we sat in the back corner of the restaurant with zero ambience. Value for money very poor. Limited selection of menu items and overpriced.
Fantastic food and service in a restaurant that ticks all the boxes. The duck was to die for and was only eclipsed by the desserts. Wish I could eat here every week
Delicious!! One of my favourite dinners I have had yet
We had a nice dinner we chose to order off the menu as we couldn't see the value in the five course set option. The sommelier was very knowledgeable.
Knowledgeable staff, great food, lovely ambience.
We had a tremendous time at Culter and Co. I've always been impressed with this restaurant. Being the allocated driver this time round, I found the mocktail menu particularly impressive. The waitress was particularly helpful in choosing matching drinks with our selected food. You can't go past this restaurant for a special evening.
Delicious food. Great service. So yum. Would recommend
The Sunday lunch prix fixe was excellent and surprisingly generous. I’ll be coming back with the whole family so we can try and share more dishes!
We had a simply marvelous experience. Mid-week makes all the difference. A bit quieter on the diner front, meant that the staff had that little bit of extra time to interact with us and the kitchen to be able to manage some special requests.
The only qualm, we had a table near us who were boisterous. Not Cutler & Co's fault.
Went there based on recommendations and this place didn’t disappoint. I was left alone with the menu longer than i felt i should have but overall a must do!!! Divine food and the suckling oig was amazong but the chargrilled cabbage was the best
i always tell my friends that service is at Cutler and Co is the best service in Melbourne!
Also foods are always amazing:)
Thank you so much! I will def come back again!
I went to Cutler & Co for my husband's birthday. We live in Brisbane, and this trip to Melbourne was my birthday present to him. I organised a number of restaurants, bars and experiences for him. Cuttler & Co was the one place we were most excited to try as they are supposed to be one of the best restaurants in Melbourne. I made a note into my online booking's description that this was my husband's birthday dinner celebration.
When we got to Cutler & Co, the place was busy and the atmosphere was nice. However, they had a huge private function going on that night and the staff seemed to be highly concerned with THAT function and the service in the main restaurant was lacking care and attention. Our waitress (a blond girl which unfortunately I can't remember her name) was cold and did her bare minimum. She acted like a robot and did not seem like she wanted to be there. She seemed to be fully in auto-mode and acted like she was doing us a favour by serving us (so much so that we wanted a picture of that evening and I could not get myself to ask her to take a picture of us. I ended up asking another staff member). The service was EXTREMELY slow, our food took forever to get to our table (again, the food to the function was constantly going) and we were left there waiting without any explanation.
We had 5 courses over more than 3.5hrs and the last 2 courses were delivered at the SAME time. No one came to our table and asked if we were fine. When we asked for the bill no one asked how our experience was and we left feeling extremely disappointed with the service.
The food, when eventually got to our table, was nice and tasty but the fact that it had taken so long to be served, coupled with the extremely poor service and total disregard for our time and the fact that it was a special night for us: we left with a bitter taste and we'll certainly not going back.
You are better trying Vue de Monde, Igni or even Cumulus Inc. (this owned by the same Cutler people).
We enjoyed our Sunday lunch at Cutler & Co. The entrees were delicious, however the main pasta (garganelli) was disappointing. I was so looking forward to lovely tender homemade fare, however the actual pasta was firm and and not very tasty. My dessert of chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream was scrumptious. Attentive, friendly service. Thanks
My wife and I shared a wonderful night of great food, excellent wine and remarkable friendly service from people who enjoy their work and want the customer to feel comfortable and welcome. Would recommend this place to anyone who wants to experience fine food and a special night out.
An enjoyable evening enjoying a scrumptious meal. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive.
While the food and wine were excellent. It was the staff that really made the evening. Thank you!
The food was great but the service was very poor for a fine dining restaurant.
It’s a good dining restaurant for catching up with friends or dates. They provide good quality service and oysters are yummy.
We went on a Sunday and had the Sunday menu, it was delicious, plenty of food for $85. Service was great everyone was very friendly and their wine recommendations were spot on. Loved it.
Celebrated a first anniversary here for Sunday lunch; the food and service were outstanding. The Sunday lunch was a great vibe, a bit more relaxed than I imagine an evening reservation. Would absolutely recommend and go back again.
Absolutely the best Sunday Lunch in Melbourne - best enjoyed with the matching wines.
The staff were so pleasant and attentive without any arrogant or snobby attitude.
The food was absolutely delicious, I cannot fault it. The chefs are clearly wonderful. However, I must say the service was very disappointing. The dishes weren’t properly explained. No extra detail was given unless we asked for and it felt like an effort to understand the menu because of this. I wish the staff had been more personal.
The food, service and atmosphere was amazing, highly recommend cutler to all my friend
This was my fourth and final visit to Cutler & Co. On arrival the greeting was brusque and unfriendly. My party, comprising of two, were sat directly in front of a doorway connecting the bar and restaurant. It was noisy and other patrons were often skirting around us which was intrusive and uncomfortable. Our waiter was pleasant and knowledgeable and the chef’s menu was satisfactory but rather pedestrian. Overall the evening was disappointing and not deserving of the $505 (before tip) tariff.
The sourdough bread was amazing. It came with two kinds of butter. Two! The food in general was great, and there was plenty of it. We struggled to finish the last courses of the chef's selection menu as we were so full at that point. Everything else was amazing too - the service was great, and the ambience was perfect for a candlelit dinner date.
Always a marvellous experience at Cutler & Co. Really can't fault it.
Had the Sunday degustation lunch. Amazing food and service. Will be back!
Excellent venue for a big night out. Great food & service.
Amazing service paired with incredible food. Definitely coming back!
Cutler and Co was fantastic! Do yourself a favour and let the team at Cutler give you an experience you won't forget! The Ox Tongue was memorable and Sommelier Liam O'Brien delivered!
We had a wonderful evening out for my husband's birthday. One of the only two night's we've had out since the birth of our baby a year ago and as my husband is an ex-chef I wanted to book somewhere that he'd find impressive but also enjoyable. Food was lovely, the wine was amazing and the service was brilliant. Our waitress was on her very first shift and she was one of the highlights of our evening, just really friendly and knowledgeable and not pretentious at all. Our sommelier was also fantastic and as a wine enthusiast, I thoroughly enjoyed every wine we tried. We don't go out often so this was a real treat for us, hence the splurge but it was a memorable evening.
Perfect Dining Experience
Highly recommended ✅
The staff were very professional and the food was exceptional
It was my first meal at Cutler very aware and friendly. The food was delicious and the courses were spaced out. Most enjoyable experience.
A very nice place. Food was superb, matched by the wonderful service. Thank you! We'll be back for sure.
