Geronimo Aperitivo Bar and Restaurant
What a find! It was a busy Saturday night, yet staff were attentive and friendly. The wine list was excellent and the food delicious. Will definitely go back next time in Launceston.
First into the restaurant and I had to walk to the bar order drinks while 3 staff stood and talked. Also the Pork Belly in 3 out of 4 meals was more fat than meet. Consences from all at our table was the worst dinning experience we had ever incurred and we go out once a fortnight. Never recommend and we extremely dissappointed.
Not often you get inedible food - bad food too often, but rarely inedible! Step up Geronimo -their duck breast -criminally overcooked, fat not rendered, a repugnant ‘orange’ sauce - at premium prices! Informed wait staff whose attitude was ‘our kitchen is stellar’ -it’s not- their other dishes not much better - a waste of good money - avoid!
Amazing food, drinks and service. Highly recommend.
The small plates were all really good , a good range of interesting drinks and wine , comfortable chairs and good service on a busy night. Will come back.
I think we got them on a bad night. They had all the gear and no idea. There seemed to be very little flow in the service, and the staff were really mixed in terms of personability. The wait times to order or get cleared and called were insane, and our whole section was left by the wayside. The poor people next to us ordered a wine match with their set menu. Their courses came out without the previous courses being cleared and reset, and they had empty, dirty wine glasses lined up next to their fresh full ones. It was really impossible to feel relaxed because I felt that the staff were drowning and not helping one another. In terms of the basics: We didn’t receive water until prompted, we weren’t read the specials or outages until prompted, our table was rickety, the lights needed lowering, the music needed adjustment, and about 7 or 8 groups walked in without the bartender or floor person bothering to even glance at them. It was kind of a sh*tshow. The bartender was continually popping food in her mouth and didn’t smile at anybody. There was a waiter stuffing around with clearing empty tables and spraying seats across the quiet side of the venue, whereas in my section virtually none of the tables were being taken care of, because the poor section waitress was slammed. The waitress (auburn ponytail) in our section was a doll, and really apologetic. If she wasn’t there working her butt off, I would have been really unhappy. The food would have been awesome if it wasn’t kind of cold. I think this was a matter of a nice restaurant lacking some management and direction this time, and being totally slammed. That said, they’re probably a lot better than this usually. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and try again next time I’m in the area! Sorry to leave such a mean note - I would love to return and experience what I imagine is the usual standard of service :)
Solo Sunday lunch. Booked online after a recommendation from another solo tourist,from the UK.
Amazing food, service and welcome, I highly recommend Geronimo to anyone. The staff were attentive and the food was delivered at perfect intervals.
Thank you Geronimo
Tourist from Victoria and an huge ‘foodie’.
It was difficult to understand the waitress due to both accent and the noise level in the restaurant (although I wouldn't consider the noise inappropriately loud for that time of night). It was difficult also to get someone's attention to place our order as we had been left for around 20mins before food or drinks order was taken. However once the food and wine came out we were very happy. The food was cooked to perfection, the proportions were exactly as they were described and we were offered the dessert menu once we'd finished. It was a perfect date night and we will be back again.
The food and ambience was nice, but it was so warm inside we had to keep popping outside to cool down. Dinner was unfortunately spoilt by the couple sitting very close to us that played on their phones literally all evening. I can't wait until restaurants ban phones at the table.
Really enjoyed dinner and drinks at Geronimo's. A good sharing menu and a good wine list, nice ambience and great service. I'll go back next time in Launceston.
Tremendous food and service. Elegant location and great atmosphere.
Brilliant as always!
Please bring back more veg options though, they are one of the best things about Geronimo.
Lovely food, great service from very attentive staff. Will definitely go back in the future.
Excellent evening out on holiday to Tasmania we enjoyed it very much both drinks and food
The meals were beautiful although ordering and service was slow. Dylan was an outstanding waiter and made our night very entertaining
Had an absolutely lovely meal on Sunday the 3rd of November. The lady working on the floor did an amazing job considering it was flat out. She was working exceptionally hard and still maintaining a bubbly professional persona. Well done!
The food and the ambiance was great. Although the staff are exceptionally friendly and willing, service left a bit to be desired. Our drinks took a very long time to arrive (mine only after our food). We will definitely go back, but perhaps order drinks first and only then order food. Overall we would recommend Geronimo.
One of the best restaurants and meals i have ever been to and had!
Food was phenomenal and presented so beautifully. Staff were very helpful and were able to give recommendations based on our likes and dislikes. I will be definitely going back.
Food was delicious, staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Wine was well paired with each course. I felt the courses were brought out a little too quickly as I couldn’t finish each glass of wine in time, but they do let you know the booking is for two hours only, and I might just be a slow drinker! This was a great spot for a catch up with an old friend and fellow foodie over some excellent local produce. We will be back!
Amazing menu , staff and service ! Made our anniversary even more special !
Service was beautiful. Ordered the porterhouse steak and it was over cooked. Staff were apologetic but took +20mins for the replacement steak to come out meaning we couldn’t eat our meals together. Mudgee blend red wine was delicious.
Amazing staff, extremely friendly and engaging and down to earth! Up for a laugh, they were fantastic
The food was amazing, the combinations were unusual but certainly worked. The service was excellent. We had the taster plates. I think the serve sizes were small for the price. I would recommend many of the dishes but advise that they are expensive, but very tasty.
Fabulous food and service. I would highly recommend.
We will return.
Our experience at Geronimo was amazing, staff were super polite and professional! Food couldn’t be faulted! Thankyou!
Very disappointed this visit to Geronimos.
We booked ahead and on arrival were placed in a back room, away from the fantastic vibrancy of the main restaurant and bar. Felt like we had been put in the naughty corner, staring at a dark blue wall.
The waitress then asked us to move tables when another party arrived, only to be told not to move. Lots of confusion amongst staff.
The menu has changed significantly since our last visit too. Overly simplified and not as exciting as previous dining visits.
When we were leaving via the main restaurant/bar, the place was buzzing. Unfortunately, we really missed out on that experience this time.
We had a fantastic experience at Geronimos. The Service was impeccable, and the food was amazing. We were really impressed. We liked the share plates and the staff were really helpful in working out how many dishes we would need. The one teeny tiny thing we would suggest (which is personal preference)was that the Cauliflower dish was served warm/hot. The flavours were great, just didn't like it cold. Thanks for a wonderful night.
Food was great!
would recommend !
What a wonderful dining experience! The food was amazing - could've been in NYC. Fantastic flavor combinations, fresh ingredients and delightful presentation. Well priced. Would love to see a few green or salad items on the menu. Thanks for a great night.
First visit as locals. Very impressed with overall experience. Great food well presented. Service exceptional.
Great food, great staff and enjoyable Dinner. Their breakfasts are fantastic and very yum too.
Brilliant wait staff, knowledgeable bar staff and amazing food.
The ambiance of the restaurant was brilliant and the staff made regular trips to our table to ensure that not only were we fine with our dining experience but also our drinks.
The food was more than value for money and was an experience I'd never had before. I look forward to joining them again for more food.
Amazing food, one of the best meals I've ever had (and I eat out a lot!). And really good value. The same meal would cost 30% more in Melbourne. Service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The barman was amazing going that extra mile when we asked for advice about gins. Thank you, thank you.
Our waitress was lovely, super bubbly and attentive. Food was good, but not great. Had a good vibe and all in all was a nice night.
This is the 3rd time we have been here. We were stuck in the middle of alot of groups which made it extremely noisy and we couldn't even talk to one another. I asked for a booth down the back of the restaurant which is nice an quiet but somehow we ended up in the middle. This was my least favorite visit. Tiny piece of pulled port a bit unbelievable actually two small pieces. They have taken the lamb of the menu that i love and the gnocchi didnt sound as nice as what we had previously. Little bit disappointing the dessert was the nicest part of the evening. Will be trying somewhere else next time may come back if they put the lamb back on the menu.
We had the new menu launched that day. Superb food and attentive service without being fussy
Great wine list and wonderful atmosphere
Best dining experience in Launceston, especially the quality of the food.
Best place in town. Better than Cataract on Paterson. This is our second time there and we love it. Great Food. Great service.
