Fitzroy Social Ratings and Reviews
OK this place is large -Talon our waiter was great- entrée 6pcs -3 each were great my main was excellent as was my dessert not too sure about the popcorn on the panna cotta-every thing was well paced no waiting for dishs and the cider was yummy-however by 8pm this place was getting noisy and where we sat-the mural wall side- we could smell a lot of cigarette smoke ahhhh
Fantastic atmosphere, great tasting food and friendly staff. Enjoyed the entree sharing and the salmon for main was cooked to perfection and my partner had the lamb cutlet which he thoroughly enjoyed. The salted caramel panacotte for dessert was so yummy. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will definitely come back again.
Trying this venue for the first time and it was a very enjoyable experience. Food was creative and delicious, service was very good and the drink selection expansive without being overly expensive. A very good place to catch up with friends for a drink and a meal.
So disappointing! My husband has been there previously and he raved about it. Wow what a disappointment. The food was average (and I'm being very generous). Not sure if it was an "off night".
We thought we'd round the night off with coffees, one being an espresso and the other a macchiato . Clearly your team need to learn the definition of these coffees. After two coffees needing to be returned and the third still not right, we just didn't bother and left it.
Won't be revisiting as there are way to many places in Fitzroy that can cater for our needs.
We were ding for my wife's birthday. The service was great and the food was magnificent.
We were staying in Victoria parade so it was just two short tram rides to the restaurant.
We have already recommended this restaurant to others.
I cannot remember eating better food than we did on Friday; no fooling.
We live in Colac but we will be going back to Fitzroy Social without a doubt.
We went on a voucher for Sunday evening 6pm. Was already buzzing not over full. Food was delicious and hot. A couple of mix ups with the neighbouring table - we were given their food twice by different male waiters. Overall, we had a good night with our main waiter Katrina who was on the ball and picked up the slackness of the other waiters. She new instantly what we had ordered without checking and apologized for the mix up. Katrina was delightful, bubbly and although busy - was always attentive to us.
Would prefer to choose my own entree rather than get stuff I don't like.
Main meal was great - waiter was very nice and helpful.
Dessert was very disappointing - not what we ordered - a very plain, dry tart with half a strawberry on top - no cream.
Exceptionally loud with booming rap music making conversation impossible. The food was function food standard of reasonable quality and as we were on a two for one deal good value. Otherwise wouldn't return. Service slow but staff lovely.
This was the first time we have been to Fitzroy Social. We were truly surprised. The food was very special and the wine complimented it. Stephanie waited on us and she was friendly, efficient and an assert to Fitzroy Social. We highly recommend this venue and we will return as soon as we can.
Excellent service by Juan.
Food is much better than last time, only downside was the Salmon, very small, no skin and overcooked. Surf and Turf is perfect.
The place is not full and still loud.
Coffee is BAD, eventhough I'm always happy to pay $4.00
Is it a bar, high end Pub or a restaurant?????
For a start, the music is LOUD, a gigantic speaker above our table doesn't help when one is trying to converse.
The Bar area is happening, quite a few patrons on a Thursday night having their Christmas party I would say.
Table and chairs aren't comfortable, no linen, no set up, on a casual cafe style, those transparent plastic chair looks cool but aren't comfortable.
Service was good, albeit slow as they only have a few staff to tend us all.
On the food side, disappointing;
Stand out was the mixed Entree of Pork belly, Arrancini, Calamari and bread with dipping sauce, 4/5.
Mains are mostly disappointing, hard crusted Lamb cutlets, overcooked Salmon, but perfectly grilled steak (Surf & Turf).
Desserts are ordinary and coffee are average too.
Parking is also difficult, $4/hr for street parking, so we need a bigger incentive to come back this place.
Beautiful 3 courses and incredible value through ouffer. One of the best steaks we've ever had. Heaps of other great value offers available on their daily specials as well. We'll probably make the trip down the Calder to go there again.
The starters of the set menu was really inventive and delicious. Great value for money and the pork belly was the best ever had. My salmon was overcooked and so was my partners meat but the prawns and chorizo was great for our mains. Dessert was inventive however the pana cotta was more milky and less vanilla bean than I like. The Nutella tart tasted sub par. We waited 30 mins between finishing our mains and getting dessert. We were forgotten about by the male waiter however the female waitress we had at the start of the meal and after her break (at the end of the meal) was amazing and really attentive. The Bromley decor made the wait pleasant. We loved the ambiance. Be keen try an evening meal sometime and the burgers.
