The ambience was lovely and welcoming with fantastic staff who were friendly and knowledgeable. The service was great. But most importantly the food and cocktails were delicious! The Ichi ban tasting menu was a well thought out selection and very well priced.

Still my favourite restaurant in Melbourne. Always a great time with friends and left very full. Try the Gyoza with a Negroni or Asahi draught!

Food was great, but very little ambience. We were sat upstairs where the lighting was bright and there was no view or anything interesting to look at. Service was ok, a bit slow on the drinks and food.

The Agadashi Tofu melts in your mouth and generous and the salmon, and with green tea poured over different surprise elements was filling and delicious. We appreciated the perfect drinks suggestions to compliment our meal. They were spectacular! The sake/vermouth cocktail was perfect with complimentary salty crisp bowl and the wine suggestion was a new wine fresh and full of flavour. We'll be back.

Love the Pumpkin Agedashi Tofu. The prawn katsu was lovely, but expensive.
The Gin/Yuzu cocktail was just right on a warm night.
Loved the Salmon Donburi.
A lovely summers day to sit out in the courtyard, parking around the venue however, was terrible.

We were outside in the lovely courtyard, and they put a heater on for us as the temperature had suddenly dropped. We had the 9-course dinner. The food was delicious and interesting. We asked the later courses to be delayed so we could pace ourselves and enjoy the meal, which was plentiful.

Having dined at Future Future quite a few times I was extremely disappointed with the service and food. I booked the second seating and I thought the staff were rude, not accommodating and to be honest felt like they couldn’t wait to get rid of us. Tried to order drinks and they had no vodka? Surely when a restaurant runs out of an extremely popular spirit a staff member would be sent out to restock? As soon as the desert arrived the bill was on the table!

Sensational food and service. Highly recommend the chef's selection menu and you must ask for Jeremy to look after you - outstanding service. Courtyard is very quaint and perfect for a nice sunny day!

We had a lovely time at Future Future. Food was incredible, we got the 11 course menu and we were stuffed. Amazing drinks, great atmosphere. Our first time dining out with COVID restrictions but it was a breeze and the staff made everything feel easy and normal.

Food is great, only the start of the service was not 100% as they forgot to tell us about the existence of set menus (which are not shown in the menu) and only figure it out until we asked the next table what were they eating, besides that it is all good
