Lovely evening, once seated we were given the option to enjoy some on the house bubbly and also a nice little chocolate. The whole atmosphere is great.

Denny’s Kitchen has a great set up with lots of room between tables and around the restaurant. The food was excellent with the prices and sizing all complimenting each other. The staff we had whilst dining went above and beyond to make the experience enjoyable and the ambiance of the restaurant was fantastic.
Will definitely return and recommend to friends and family.
Thank you for a great dining experience and night out to celebrate a special occasion.
Cheers 😀

There was a 25 dollar meal deal going, which we missed out on by not ordering all at once? Yet we pay all at once? Disappointing, food was ok, came out on time, donuts were not cooked, and pizza was a bit burnt on top, but the service of missing the meal deal was poor
Nothing taking me back there unfortunately

Thank-you for taking the time to provide feedback. It is understandably disappointing that the explanation of how to order our 2 course for $25 deal and elements of the dessert were not up to our usual standards. We endevour to take all feedback on board and in addition to offering an apology and discount on the night, are sorry again for the impact this had on your overall experience

Hair found in several dishes salted caramel donuts were hard as rocks and way too salty. Felt like eating a teaspoon of salt. Mousse was too heavy and not nice flavor. Risotto very bland and lasagne tasted like sauce straight out of a can carbonara was dry with no sauce. All this was mentioned to staff member but we were not offered a discount or anything. Sadly we won’t be back. Would normally say nothing but you did ask.

Thank-you for your feedback. It is disappointing to hear that you haven’t enjoyed elements of your meals this time.We always aim to check enjoyment after each course, to rectify any issues on the spot. Unfortunately after these follow ups, we were not made aware of the issues you have described until all desserts were being cleared.Without being able to address issues as soon as they arise,our ability to make changes or replace dishes that have been fully or for the most part consumed is limited

My main pasta meal was only entree size, and lemon tart, the shell was rock hard,and filling was very sloppy. Asked if we would like cream or ice cream with sweets and you added money on to the 2 course $25 deal. You knew we were going to a show, but you didn't remind us to show our tickets for a complimentary drink... very disappointing meal really

Responded on 4 July 2019

Thanks for your feedback, Cheryl. Our 2 course offer is excellent value and a great choice before heading to a show!We do offer additional items to complement dishes, with dessert the extra icecream/cream with an additional charge is listed on the menu under each item. Our promotion with GPAC is still running & a complementary beverage is only redeemable at customer request when a ticket is present, as stated on advertisements.We apologise if this wasn't made more apparent on the evening

Pizza was clearly burnt in places on one side, but the kitchen served it anyway, and it had no toppings for about 5cm in from the edge all round. Very ordinary. The antipasto platter had no flavour at all except for the salami, only ate a bit of it, told the waitress after she cleared it but was not offered an alternative, the boss should tell the wait staff that anytime someone complains and hasn't eaten it, they should be offered something else. Service otherwise good though and the building was good.

Responded on 4 July 2019

Our pizzas are cooked in an authentic wood oven, giving them a light char&distinct flavour.We apologise if the pizza was a little more cooked for your liking-as you have raised this with wait staff it should've been rectified immediately.As for the antipasto,chefs recall receiving feedback&have cross checked elements of this dish to ensure high quality.We will revisit training with our staff on how to deal with similar situations as they arise, as what you described is not our standard procedure

We've been here a few times and it's been consistently fantastic. The $25 special is great value and the pizzas are also very well priced. It's difficult to find good Neapolitan pizza west of Melbourne, and Denny's pizzas are even cheaper than the pizza chains. I would expect that a restaurant with good value and authentic food must cut corners on the decor or the facilities, but everything was clean, bright and warm. Not sure how you're doing it, but we'll definitely be back.

Very average service, had to ask to order drinks and then wait 20 mins for the wine to arrive. Still hadn't taken food order so had to ask for that to be taken as well. Mentioned that we had a show to attend in 1 hr, food very slow to arrive and had to ask for dessert so we could please leave (was part of the meal deal). Would not recommend or return, better options in the area. Staff need training in basic service and attention to detail.
