Waitress seemed to be less than impressed to see us, made us feel as though we weren't wanted as customers. I honestly wanted to leave as soon as I sat down, but the only thing keeping me there was the $20 per person penalty.

We had the most amazing meal on Saturday night and thoroughly enjoyed each morsel. Our waitress was outstanding in meeting to the needs of one of our guests with dietary requirements. Will definitely be going back and recommending to others.

Every dish had its own distinct flavour profile - a little burst of surprise in each mouthful. Super delicious. The sort of food that is really difficult to replicate at home. Relaxed atmosphere, however the staff are careful and professional.

What a great choice for our Sunday lunch. Started off with adventurous cocktails, went onto delicious small dishes, then a couple of yummy mains.
Cool decor and ditto service, it’s probably like a party hall in the evening.

Amazing food and service. Restaurant totally booked out and yet the open kitchen was calm and ran like a well oiled machine. Head chef had everything under control with a smile on his face. Very impressive indeed. The waiters know their stuff, understand the menu and educated with the food, what a pleasure to ask a questions and receive a knowledgeable answer! Staff and waiters are attentive without being in your face. I have been there 3 times now and love it more each time. My new favourite place! My only gripe, I wish these modern restaurants would address acoustics, it’s so simple to fix. They will lose the older crowd, just too hard to have a conversation, one has to scream and it’s still difficult to hear across the table. Annie/Toorak

Great restaurant, friendly staff! The food was a bit “too much” - felt as if they were trying too hard. Way too oily. Also a bit pricey
