Graze Family Bistro
Our kitchen is headed by international chef Noli Salimbagat, a man with experience cooking all around the world, and sous chef Andrew Giles, a local young talent with poise and passion. The menu consists of many facets including vegan, vegetarian and gluten free meals as well as our all-star locally sourced steaks, you can guarantee there is something for everyone.
A bit disappointing this time firstly had to keep asking for another drink, waited just on an hour to get our meals. Mine was closer to cold then hot and husband steak was rare not medium. One waiter told us it was because they were understaffed while another said it was because everyone come in at once. We were given a desert for free but when I got home I looked at the docket to discover we had be charged for drinks we didn't have.
Beef salad was tasty, kids meals were ok, our son decided he wanted the dumplings as his meal, and yes they were an entree, but even for an entree were very small, barely a mouthful each & you only got 3...
(out a Newrie you get 8 of them as entree)
Sticky date for dessert was nice but it needs cream or more ice cream, not a tiny dollop of soft serve.
And we also had a sundae, which was just soft serve with topping & nuts, (with no marshmallows or choc sprinkles per menu) so that was pretty dissapointing.
Had booked for the NYE dinner with dog races, fireworks and children’s activity. Unfortunately the dogs and fireworks were cancelled, due to summer heat and fires in the area The food was good for everyone except for the morrocan calamari which was too salty. Service was ok for a busy night. We were told when we arrived for a 7.00 pm seating that there was a 50 minute wait for meals. As there were activities on for the kids we spent this time with the activities. All in all we had a pleasant evening out
Limited menu disappointing
Our meals took over and hour to arrive and when we asked where they were we were told they were coming - they took a further 20min. The ribs were very dry and had way too much sauce to over compensate.
Best steak in town. Always cooked perfectly. Great entree sized meals for kids that need a bit more than the kids menu
Amazing service, amazing food & amazing atmosphere
Service was a little slow. Took 15 minutes of sitting at our table to get a menu and then my husband had to go and ask for one. My kids weren’t offered any table activities yet the table next to us were?? Food was delicious, but a little pricey for families. Overall, staff were friendly, food lovely but room for improvement.
We were told we'd have full table service when we enquired about ordering drinks. Our initial drinks order was taken then our meal order a little after, it was only people that ordered drinks at the same time as our meal that got a second drink. We were not asked again if we wanted any drinks at all. She offered to bring more water but, that never came. We were 9 adults and 1 teenager squashed on a table with barely enough room to eat. My husband and my mum had to try and balance their plates on the join between 2 tables that weren't the same level. Beer was warm in the stubbies and had to get replaced.
Overall not a great night
Out of the 5 meals ordered 4 where very good my meal which was on the special list was disappointing I didn't realise it was a cold dish and had no flavour. (The coconut and lemongrass chicken) 2 of us ordered desert which unfortunately neither was of a good standard the nuts on the sticky date where stale and not much sauce and the berrie waffles was at the lower end of enjoyable.
Having had better before we will come back.
After our last night at Graze I would not tell friends to go there. Booked a table for 5, when we turned up the table that was reserved for us wasn’t ready. After a 5 minute delay we went to our table. But then we realised we had been stuck next door to a party table? And OMG the noise coming from their tables was beyond a joke. One of our friends asked if we could move to another table? Which they did admit they where loud and moved us, but the table they moved us onto was dirty and covered in grit from the track that was like grinding paste. And the food serve sizes where below previous and the quality of the food wasn’t up to its normal standard
Nice relaxed feel, service was excellent. Food was delicious, kids meals were bought out first as requested.
I got avocado chicken and it was so dry even with a side of jus it was still so dry
Only reason I didn't give 5 stars for the food was you had no stock of 500g steaks that were on the menu.
The food is always of a high quality, staff are always friendly. The table was ready on time and they had the heaters on for us to sit outside and watch the greyhounds. All the meals where ordered and came out on time, and what is better that you can order a meal to come out at a set time to work in with the dog races on the night so we can get our meals between our allotted races
Great food and service, would highly recommend . Lots of choice and my steak was cooked perfectly
Had a great night with a booking over 25 people, everything was great thanks
Great service and lovely food, great to have a table close to the playroom for our granddaughter to have a play and be safely watched.
It was a busy evening staff were very pleasant and efficient. Food was ok. Noise level was high so hard to hear at time but all families were enjoying thenselves. Enjoy the venue when it’s quiet.
Love graze family Bistro, have recommended this place to many people.the food is great, the service is fantastic and the price is very competitive. Great atmosphere too
Outstanding as always. See you all again next time
As we got there early we had great service the kids were well looked after. My brother had dietary restrictions and staff were very obliging.
Got busy as we were leaving and staff were harder to attract to our table but they were all working hard.
We will be back
Not what I expected from a "club".
Food and service were amazing. Our first time there but definitely will not be the last.
Amazing as always, food is so good. Cutlets are a favorite.
A beautiful meal with the family, watching the dogs race by. Even though it was packed and everyone was busy Graze and their staff handled it well. Re-booked for next week :-)
We have been coming to your Bistro for many years now and haved loved it, recommended it to our friends and family.
Sadly the last three visits have become unenjoyable. We have always booked and arrived on time, as we have a business also. We come to relax and enjoy good food and overall a pleasant experience.
On the last three occasions we have had to chase a waitress to place our order for drinks, and then when it come to ordering our food, we are told to hurry along as there is a big order coming through, and we will have to wait if our order is not placed prior. On Wednesdday evening we had guests from out of the area, and it was embarrasing. We constantly had to wait, and in the end we walked to the bar and reception desk, to seek attention.
My husband again ordered a roast (full size), and as last time received a seniors size. On the previous occasion, we just thought, everyone makes an error, and let it go. I had the salt and pepper squid, which was" soggy, and appeared to have not been cooked long enough - I could not eat it. Our friends, I believe were too polite to say anything.
At this stage, I am sad to say, that we won't be returning any time soon.
It is a shame as we have so enjoyed everything in the past.
You are welcome to call me, if you wish to discuss these events further.
We found the staff very good although they did forget our drink order.It was a very busy evening but our food came promptly .Our meals and those of others looked very advertising.We really enjoyed our dinners and were very happy. It was very generous serve so we did not have deserts .Would recommend.
Fantastic venue,great food and awesome staff would recommend for a great get together
Garlic prawns very dry and no sauce . Rice so dried out . Last time the garlic prawns were beautiful . The other meals were nothing exciting. A bit disappointed this time around .
The food was lovely, staff were quite nice. The noise was a little loud for our liking. Felt like you had to shout to the people near you. Overall was a good night
Excellent meal. Noise level was very high. Difficult to hold a conversation across the table. It was a very busy night, full house.
We camped at the show grounds for two nights for a horse comp and had tea at Graze both nights, couldn’t fault anything have great meals and fantastic service. We watched the Grey Hound racing on the Friday night and put some bets on, you could see the track from inside the restaurant
The food was very nice and service excellent. Online booking worked well.
The only criticism was that after clearing tables in the restaurant, no attempt was made to clean the floor under the tables. Our table and several others had food left under them.
Awesome food awesome night thanks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When you first enter you can sense how relaxed and friendly everyone is , all staff were smiling and made the effort to say hello and make sure you were looked after . After being seated staff explained the specials and the service offered and then left you to ponder over menu which is great as you didn’t feel pressured to hurry up and order. Both of our meals arrived in good time and both the Ribeye @ Lamb Racks once tabled started a wow of a conversation how good they looked , even tables beside were making comment , both meals tasted as good as they looked so certainly will be spreading the word and coming back ourselves to try other menu options. So a big yes from us👍👍
Had a great night. Booking was easy. Service was immaculate.
The food was lovely even though we had a very long wait. I understand that it was Valentine's Day so very busy, but the waitress forgot to take our order. Will be back again though.
We booked for Valentines day, it didn't disappoint the meals were amazing, service was great and they gave out beautiful little vases with red flowers in them to all that dined there that night. Such a great night thanks so much Graze and well done.
Everything was great but as we were a table of 10, we were put in the corner and it was very loud. We had to yell to talk to each other. Asked to be moved but was told it wasn’t possible. Otherwise all good.
Great night out with my staff everyone commented on their meals in a positive way and when I went to pay I thought it was very reasonably priced. The service was a little slow but they were absolutely flat out when we got there and this improved as tables left. I was however disappointed with my first glass of moscato as it was warm but the girl serving was more than happy to replace it when I let her know. We hung around till very late and they were not pushy to get us out. Overall a good night.
