Located on Brighton Road and welcoming guests since the 1800's, the pub has been through many transformations including a complete refurbishment in 2011.

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.

We went on a Thursday night which was "steak night" so very well priced! The food was excellent! We had a beautiful Chardonnay which was lovely however quite expensive for pub prices!

Booked a table to watch the grand final for which they advertised had specials and a tv in every room... but were seated in a corridor without a view of a tv. Decided to go elsewhere.

The table location and food were great. The wait staff were really friendly and helpful. We were disappointed by the male bartender in a striped t-shirt. He was rude and dismissive about a minor complaint that would have been easily solved towards the end of our visit which caused us to leave with a bad feeling.

I’ve been to this hotel several times, the food is consistently delicious, the service however is seriously hit and miss. On this occasion we had to wait 45 mins for a table that we made reservations for, drinks were late and the service was terrible, constantly having to ask for water to be replenished. At 10:30 the waiter asked us to leave as they were closing the section, terrible service in my opinion!

We went for the Sunday roast and it was magnificent - the best Melbourne has to offer. The quality of the food was excellent, they have a fantastic drinks menu (I can recommend the cocktails) and the service was great. We had a look at the other menu options when we were there and I'll definitely be back to try it out. I can highly recommend.

Quiet for a Friday night in the dining room - 4 of us enjoyed steak, wine and the balloon Gins as well the fantastic mousse desert. Staff were knowledgeable and accommodated a request for gluten free options.

We went for a Father's Day family meal. When we went in we were shown to a hight table which wasnt suitable with 2 small kids but there was no issue to change tables. The service was prompt, the food was lovely. It was a busy spot,given the day that was in it,but not overly noisy. Would go back again.

My family is always happy to go to The Grosvenor for the reliably good food, especially the steaks, the fabulous vibe and great service. We enjoy catching up with friends there because it suits both younger and older people. I wish I’d discovered The Grosvenor sooner.

The food was amazing, every single dish we ordered was cooked perfectly and so tasty. The service was outstanding, the owner (I think) was very attentive. We will definitely return. Can not fault this place!

Burgers, Shnitzels, pizza are all good.
Steak....OMG can you overprice a suburban pub anymore than they do here. Give me a France Soir, or Bistro Thierry any day quality wise and they are cheaper. Bistro Guillaume is on par price wise and far better quality wise. Grosvenor is ok for anything but their way way overpriced cuts of meat.

Cosy spot to have lunch on a Sunday. Steaks we had were cooked to order as requested which was great. Quality was also good. Service was friendly. Not the cheapest but not outrageous either.

We had a lovely meal. One of the best steaks I have had in a long time. The service was also very good. I our experience was marred however by our very noisy neighbours. There were lots of young children who were extremely noisy and not supervised by their parents.

We have been to Grosvenor Hotel many times before and we were the people to recommend the rest of our party to go here! What a let down though!
We waited over an hour on our food (all of which were medium or medium-rare steaks) and when we got our food, the chips were over cooked like they’ve been sitting on the hot plate too long! Our steaks were cremated! We were so embarrassed for recommending this place and when we approached staff about waiting so long they rhymed off a script about how long steaks take to cook etc. when really she had no idea what our actual order was! Will never be back. Extremely disappointed. All 7 of us didn’t have a complaint

Third time ive been now... the food and menu was sensational and service was a 4 star she misunderstood the order but overall the place is best bistro pub in Melbourne. Wish we had the heads up about the lamb for two needing an hour prep to order. Just an idea put it on the online menu - 1 hour prep time pre order. Overall awesome ambience, good beers and mostly great food!

cheers

The place is way too noisy - music far too loud, spoiling the experience.
Our whole group agreed that it would be a great local, if not for the excessive noise.

Grosvenor’s steak and cocktail nights are one of the best in the area. Always an enjoyable meal, staff and ambience. Changed menu with more variety is a recent plus. We’ll be back.

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.
