Food was delightful, however small plates limited for a return visit.
Having booked, the seating by the door was disappointing.
Service was good, but small plates followed each other rather quickly.
Main course was good.
The food is spectacular and you won't leave hungry! I didn't expect to have 5 tasters and a main I couldn't finish because there was too much. Usually with food that good it comes out in small portions and leaves you wanting more; I honestly struggled to sleep that night because I over indulged.
Amazing food, great service- a wonderful evening at Geronimo
As always, outstanding service, delicious food, refreshing drinks and joyful ambiance.
Wow, its reviews like these that make us love what we do. Thank you Christina! What an absolute pleasure it was to have you dine with us, we look forward to having you visit us again soon. Thank you for the support.
Arrived only to be escorted to the back room which was cold and lacked any kind of ambience. Clearly labelled as the family room as there were loads of children screaming and crying. One of our guests ordered a coke. Arrived at the table flat. Ordered a replacement and were told they had run out. Then ordered a lemonade. Came back to the table only to say that they had run out of that too. Ordered tomato sauce for the bowl of fries. Returned to the table to say that they had run out of tomato sauce. Ordered a second glass of wine which after 20 mins did not arrive. The food was fair, but certainly not great. Also received a great surprise when paying for our meals that we paid $25 for five glasses of table water. Unfortunately this place has always lacked good, experienced and attentive staff. Have dined here before and the food has been good, so perhaps this day was just one out of the norm. Not sure that we will be back in a hurry.
The staff were all amazing and were so very helpful explaining all that was asked, the drinks were superb and so many options that I would love to try, the food was spectacular and if I lives in Launceston this would be my go to place for a good time.
Wow, thank you so much for your kind review Jason. It's our pleasure to take you through all the offerings of Geronimo. Our beverage list is a labour of love from our team and is constantly growing. Next time you visit there will be even more options (watch this space). Thanks again Jason, see you again when you move to Launceston!
Service was excellent but even the wait staff struggled to explain the seriously confusing menu strategy...tbh I don’t think I can even actually explain it properly now but it cost $320 for 3 people and we only had one drink each. The shared entrees varied enormously in size and quality and the shared main course of gnocchi was really tasteless. In the past I’ve loved the main meat courses at Geronimos but the menu now forces you to order 5 entrees and 1 main to share and the meat mains are ‘premium’ so they cost significantly more in addition to the $70ph you’re already committed to. All very strange and I felt sorry for the staff who were gorgeous.
We were disappointed in this dining experience. The food was nice but overpriced. The time taken between our first and second courses was over an hour which happened because the order did not go in. We were offered free drinks for this mistake but you would expect better at a restaurant of this apparent standing.
Amazing good, super friendly staff. Definitely recommend
Thanks so much for leaving a review Kurt. It was a pleasure to have to dine with us. Its very easy to be super friendly when we have such lovely customers. We look forward to hosting you again soon.
One of the best meals I’ve had in years. Food was fresh, perfectly balanced and delicious. Services was outstanding - friendly and knowledgeable. My server was able to offer fantastic advice about the food and wine pairings.
Ahh thats exactly what we love to hear Melanie, thank you so much. Our kitchen teams prides themselves on the quality produce they select, and we certainly love it when our guests can tell how fresh our produce is. Offering outstanding service is easy when we have such wonderful customers. Ohh we do love a wine pairing, sounds like a great night. We're looking forward to taking you on your next Geronimo experience. Cheers
Outstanding service and food. Back to pre Covid days. Well done.
Hi Star, Thanks so much for leaving us a review. We hope to have you dine with us again soon.
Food was incredible! Front of house and wait staff were efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this restaurant !
Hi Selina, Thank you so much for taking the time to review Geronimo from your recent visit with us. So glad you had a great culinary experience. It was a pleasure to have you dine with us. Thanks for the support.
The food was very tasty lots of flavours
And different, the service was great and the only downside is the noise level is very noisy .we would come back though.
Hi Loopy, Thanks for your review. So glad you enjoyed our diverse menu. We are a very busy restaurant so it can get a little noisy at times. Let us know next time you book and we can possibly arrange for you to be in our private dining room which is very quiet. Your support is greatly appreciated. Cheers
First time here, good ambience & friendly service . Food was delicious, we will be back again,
Thank you Mimz. We're looking forward to having you dine with us again in the future.
We had the 5 feed me plates and a signature dish great food came away feeling very satisfied
Thank you Jane, It was a pleasure to have you dine with us. We hope to see you again soon.
Fantastic share menu with delicious food and just right portion size. I believe value for money is excellent in a relaxed atmosphere and very good table service. Music playing is a good fit for the setting and not so loud that you can't have a conversation.
Overall I look forward to dining here again for my third time. We have now had both the lunch and dinner and both are equally pleasurable experiences.
Hi Terry, Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review from your recent visit with us at Geronimo. So glad both your visits were great and you enjoyed the full Geronimo experience. We're certainly looking forward to you returning for your third and best visit yet! Cheers
Dined here at Lunch time, (after midday) the place was quiet and there were only a couple of other people there. We unfortunately had to wait way too long for our meals which was unacceptable considering the place was virtually empty. Afterwards, we waited a long time to get the dessert menu. We were in full view of the bar and the staff were all just having a laugh and a chat and I eventually had to call out to a waiter and ask for the dessert menu after waiting for what seemed like an eternity. The food was good, but just found the staff to be very inattentive and the service was slow.
Hi Berton, Firstly thank you for the support. Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention so we can promptly correct this to make sure this doesn't happen again in the future. This is certainly not how a visit to Geronimo should be. Thank you again for letting us know so we can rectify this problem. We do hope you will give us another chance in the future, your support is greatly appreciated. Cheers
We were in Launceston for a wedding. Loved the shared plate choice. Everything we picked was delicious.
Would love the recipe for the prawn dumplings and beef cheek ravioli.
Thank you so much for your review. You're not alone with wanting the recipe for the dumplings and ravioli, they have a cult following! Hope to have you dine with us again on your next visit to the island!
Great food, service and cutout. A Launceston gem! I would defo go back next time!
Thank you so much Astrid. Comments like these are exactly the reason why we love what we do! Thank you, we hope to see you again soon.
The food was excellent, although we made the mistake of ordering too much. Our group would have been happy with the five share plates, without the two large mains that we also ordered. My advice would be to just order the five tapas dishes and wait and see if you need to order more. My complaint is with the price. This place is already expensive, and it was not until we’d ordered that we were informed of a 15 per cent holiday surcharge. It was not until we went to pay that we found out there was a ‘bottle service charge’ of $15 per bottle. The meal ended up costing $560 for the four of us, and frankly was not worth it.
Hello, Firstly thank you for your support, so glad your group loved our food. The 5 share plates is a great way to start, offering a taste of everything (this also helps with food envy!). The public holiday surcharge is printed on our menus & also alerts you of this when booking online. Apologies you were not told of the $15 bottle service charge for wines, I will be sure to follow up & rectify this issue. I do hope you will return in the future as you had such a lovely evening. Cheers
An awesome experience with the numerous plates. The food was delish and the service was awesome. Thank you
Thanks for leaving us a review Adam. It was a pleasure to have you dine with us, we hope to see you again soon.
Our last day in Launceston required a special eating out event and we selected Geronimo for it. It didn’t disappoint - fabulous food, atmosphere, and timely and friendly service. We had a wonderful position overlooking the pretty park opposite it. Look forward to our next visit. Thanks Geronimo team, it was a fabulous experience.
Hi Chris, Thank you so much for leaving us a review of your recent visit with us at Geronimo. It was an absolute pleasure to have you dine with us. That's out favourite table too, great to watch the world go by while you have some delicious food. Your support is greatly appreciated, we look forward to having you dine with us again soon.
The entree and dessert option was just right for a relaxed Sunday evening meal. The atmosphere was good, service was polished, food arrived relatively quickly and we enjoyed every dish we chose. We will definitely return.
Hi Rebecca, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. So glad you had an enjoyable Sunday evening with our small plates and dessert option. It was a pleasure to have you dine with us, we look forward to hosting you again soon.
We are travelling through Tasmania on our honeymoon and choosing great food and dining experiences was high on our list of must dos.
We researched most of the restaurants during our trip and booked in advance. These included top restaurants in Hobart and on the east Coast.
Our trip to Geronimo was a last minute decision due to a change in travel plans and it was without doubt our best dining experience to date!
The atmosphere was fantastic, the food exceptional, but best of all was the service
Timothy and Lachy went out of their way to provide a complete dining experience... it was such a treat to dine here.
We had the 5 small plates including the croquettes, cauliflower, beef ravioli, butternut pumpkin fritters and checked and prawn dumplings
Lachy recommended some fantastic wines and Timothy spent time recommending the menu
What a fantastic place! We cannot wait to plan another trip back to Tasmania, landing in Launceston first this time so that we can go to Geronimo again on our first and final day
Yonika and Ben
Wow, thank you so much Yonika and Ben. First a congratulations to you both on your marriage. That was such a lovely review to receive. We're so glad we could give you a magical night on your honeymoon. We think Timothy and Lachy are pretty fantastic also, ill be sure to show them this review. So glad you had a wonderful trip and congratulations again. Look forward to seeing you on your next trip
The service was lovely and the food AMAZING, our family of 4 loved sharing dishes and the atmosphere was great.
Hi Thalia, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. Sounds like you and your family had a wonderful experience with us. Thank you for the support, hope to see you again soon.
A great way to end our trip to Tasmania. Great food, excellent service and great laughs.
Thank you Kasia, so glad you had a great trip to the island. Very happy you ended your trip with us and we can keep you wanting to return! Dining is always better with excellent service and lots of laughs. All the best, hope to see you again soon.
Fantastic food and service
Great food, amazing service. Highly recommended
Thanks so much Linda, hope to see you again soon.
Overall okay, but service pace and attentiveness was clunky and didnt feel overly warm or welcoming. I expected better for the prices being charged.
Hi Nicholas, Thank you for the support and providing us some feedback from your recent dining experience. Apologies our service was not our usual high standard on your recent visit, as you can see from previous reviews we pride ourselves on providing our customers with warm and welcoming service. We have just hired some wonderful new staff that take "great service" to a whole new level, i do hope you will give us another chance in the future.
Very comfortable, relaxing and tasty lunching experience.
Hi Daniel, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your recent dining experience with us. So glad you love our comfortable space as much as we do. Thanks for the support, hope to have you dine with us again soon.
Good that you can pick your wine from the shelf. We had a poor service experience which the floor manager handled well.
Hi Jon, Thank you for your feedback. Great to hear you like our in house cellar options, there is certainly a lot to choose from. Apologies your service was not up to our normal level, we have just hired a new intake of wonderful staff and we do hope you will give us another chance in the future to show you the wonderful Geronimo experience that we are all about.
One of the party was unwell and the night had to be called short. She was unwell before we arrived so we know the restaurant was definitely not at fault. Even so, the food we had was incredible, the service impeccable and when we left, the staff were far more concerned with our party’s wellbeing and provided a significant discount and let us know they love to see us back. We already have reservations to go back and finish the meal.
Hello, Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review. I do hope your friend is now feeling better. We're looking forward to having you dine with us again to show you the whole Geronimo experience. Cheers
Out of this world ...Excellent food and cocktails.
Hi Ajax, Thanks so much for taking the time to review your recent dining experience with us. Sounds like you had a fantastic visit, we're looking forward to seeing you again soon. Cheers
Our waitress Lucy was absolutely fantastic. We have never come across anyone like her. She was incredibly helpful with all sections of the menu and knew it inside and out. She made it much more than just a dinner experience, she was so interactive and was so enjoyable to have assisting us on the night.
Hi Shari, Thank you for such a beautiful review. Thanks so much for your visit, it was a pleasure to have you dine with us at Geronimo. Thats so lovely to hear, ill be sure to pass this onto Lucy. She's our amazing manager that certainly takes pride in her job. We think she's absolutely fantastic also! Thank you for your support, we look forward to having you dine with us again soon Cheers
As we were a bit early we sat at the bar & were served by the very attentive bar person. The whole space had a wonderful ambience. The options on the menu were excellent & the portions, especially the ‘large plate’ were very generous...for me not to be able to finish off a plate just doesn’t happen, but 5 pieces of Pork Belly between the two of us, after the ‘small plates’ defeated me!! Every choice was beautifully presented & tasted amazing & there is an excellent wine selection from the racks on the side wall. The staff were attentive & friendly. A very memorable evening & we’ll definitely go back next time we are in Launceston.
Wow, thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a detailed and wonderful review. Sounds like you had a memorable evening with us. We've just hired a few new staff members and its so great to hear such lovely feedback, we'll be sure to pass on your review. The bar seating is often the best to be in the middle of the action and always fun watching the world go by whilst enjoying a fantastic cocktail and snacks. Thanks for your support, looking forward to seeing you soon!
Best service I think I’ve experienced in Tasmania for a very long time. The tasting plates were delicious, as were the cocktails. Thank you, we will definitely return.
Hi Alana, Thanks so much for visiting us at Geronimo. It was an absolute pleasure to have you dine with us. So glad you love our cocktails as much as we do. Looking forward to seeing you next visit to the island.
The small plates were all very heavy and oily. The waiter was really lovely, but seemed to be the only one on the floor and was run of his feet and not able to keep up with drinks orders.
Great service, friendly waitstaff & the food was amazing.
Thank you Marni, looking forward to seeing you on your next visit Cheers
Great food and atmosphere, an enjoyable evening out and the share menu was a very high standard.
Hi Michael, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review from your recent experience with us. So glad you loved everything, we look forward to having you dine with us in the future.
The service was very good. I thought the menu needed more cohesiveness. For example the cauliflower was tasty , the dumplings and broccolini was tired bland .
The prawns were tasty as was the nduja pasta. The desert starinese cream caramel was perfect.
Thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback Bill. We love to give our customers great service. We're currently working on a new Autumn menu which im sure you'll love. We love the Nduja pasta too and you cant leave without trying the creme caramel. Hope to see you again soon, your support is greatly appreciated.
