Located on Brighton Road and welcoming guests since the 1800's,

Today, it is a multi-faceted venue that can cater for many different experiences, anything from casual drinks to family dinners or birthday parties in one of the function rooms.

Grosvenor Hotel prides itself on its commitment to sourcing, ageing and preparing premium cuts of grass fed Victorian beef, which are available in the Bistro, the drive-thru burger bar (STKBB) and to take home from the Grosvenor Grocery & Bottle Shop.

The food is consistently great but the service has been getting worse over the last few months. It takes forever to get a menu and then the service is very slow. We never got asked if we wanted more drinks and our food took about 40 minutes to come. The staff seemed to fuss over certain tables and then completely forget about other tables.

The food at this restaurant was very tasty and nice size servings. Where we were seated in the bistro the noise was very loud and echoey. Price wise the meals were absolutely well worth it. My only real criticism was the mark up on the wine. Thought I was back in Bali.

Great food, fabulous pizzas but many other tasty options e.g. aged stake. Yummy specials most days!
Great for large groups and celebrations. Good service.
Great big group dinning.

We had fantastic service. There was an error in the beers we had chosen (there should be better beers on tap), we spoke to the gentleman serving us and he fixed it straight away, replaced the beers we were given with the correct ones we ordered.

Good food but the beer selection is woeful these days. Not sure I’d be back based solely on this. No good German beers is a crying shame.

After having a good experience back in August with our family we decided to ask our good friends to come and have dinner with us. We had a 7.30 booking and arrived on time. We found the service extremely slow and the wine list was now very expensive. No cheap wines. Average of $70 for a reasonable bottle. With 4 couples that added a lot to the bill. Unfortunately I don’t think we will be rushing back. I know our friends will not be going back.

The food was fantastic. The service was decent. The only 2 things I could pick on were; there was a group of 10 or so that was sat in the same area with the acoustics of the outside area made it impossible to have a business discussion and $14 extra for chicken added to a caeser salad is absolutely ridiculous.
Overall while expensive you get great food and decent service.

This place has gone down hill in the last 5 months. We had lunch yesterday and it is no where near as good as it was. Toilets were also disgusting, not cleaned regularly. The host was a large man who needed a shower.

Service was very good, the young girl that waited on our table of 6 was excellent. Steak was disappointing in regard to quality and price, did not live up to some of the online reviews. We had guests from the USA and all they wanted was to experience some good Aussie beef, we should have gone to Rockpool or Station Hotel. Better quality and value.

Great 70th birthday celebration. A range of ages in our group. We booked our table for 6.30 but they were happy for us to sit outside and enjoy some drinks before heading to our table:
Big selection of drinks, meals and spaces.
Everyone had a great time and the waitress tolerated even the silliest of questions from some serious non foodies at our table
They also had a trivia night running somewhere else in the bar
Good layout for variety and a good general atmosphere

Overall our experience was good, however my husband & daughter shared the eye fillet steak, which was cold when it arrived.
The steak was the most expensive meal, ordered by our party of 5.
It should have been served on a warm plate, rather than a cold plate.

Service was good - food not up to expectations.
We came for the steak - was expensive but not exceptional.
Burgers - OK, pass.
Parma - good but sauce bland.
Asked for quiet spot - but 6 kids running up and down shouting heads off - no parents or staff to deal with it. (parents had sent them away from their table to bother us. - THANKS FOR THAT.)

Pity about the toilets which unfortunately well well below the standard expected. Both the male and female toilets are way too small and both were quite dirty.

We have dined at The Grosvenor a few times previously. It's a local "go to" for us. Tonight, we were placed in the busier, more casual area of the venue. No problem with that.
For half an hour before sunset, the sun was directly in our eyes. Thankfully, the Manager was prepared to move us.
Food tonight was less special than normal. I'll put that down to the hectic, pre-Christmas rush.
Service staff were responsive and friendly.
We'll be back.

We love this place. It’s our go to with family, friends or in this case our staff Christmas party!
The food is great, the service always on point and the bingo night run by a comedian was most entertaining!

Booked the Grosvenor Hotel for a group of 8 girlfriends. The place was very busy and the noise level was such that we practically had to shout to hear each other.

Our booking was at 7:00pm, it was 9:00pm before we got our food and then one of the meals was missed from the order and not served.

The staff were not knowledgeable on wine, several of us ordered an eye fillet steak and each had gristle, something I've never encountered in an eye fillet steak before.

Very disappointing evening!

I think its time to review the menu - to provide more options - burger, pizza & parma - ok but not for everyone.

The split time sessions are also a deterrent. Might work for management but not the customer.
