We dined at Hazel for my birthday on one of their set menus. The food was delicious, and came out at regular intervals, spaced very well. The service was fantastic and cocktails and wines were always filled!
Highly recommend Hazel!

Outstanding service by truly professional wait staff. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience offered at Hazel. We chose the tasting menu, and were not disappointed. The staff delivered the meals in a timely manner, and were knowledgeable about what was being presented and wine suggestions. The ambience was just beautiful.

I would highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to going back there again to experience all that Hazel has to offer!

Fabulous service at Hazel! Definitely recommend to sit on the bar seating on the top level. We were definitely persuaded visually to order more after seeing one of the chefs prepare! Parfait and chocolate cake were excellent !

Service was great. Atmosphere was fantastic, but the Food was super blend. Would I go back for a drink? Yes. Would I go back for food? Maybe in a year’s time when they have redesigned the menu.

Fantastic service in a gorgeous venue. Didn't enjoy the blanc de blance bottle of sparkling I ordered - it was really sweet - so the waitress replaced it and only charged for what we had drunk. Really lovely spot and the fish in miso butter was soooo good.

First time at Hazel but we loved it and will certainly be back. Food different and spectacular and service by friendly, experienced and knowledgeable staff. It was busy and a bit noisy which was the only minor issue.

Yes, in this “produce driven” restaurant, the quality of the produce is exceptional but it’s not really enough.

We had the extended chefs menu and got to try a wide selection of the food but nothing was memorable. We like simple food done well but this was just underwhelming. The heirloom tomatoes were, well, just tomatoes with a little shiso dressing. The zucchini and “leaves” were so scantily dressed we wondered if something was missing.

It was like going to a friends house who happens to have a great veggie patch and can throw together a lovely fresh casual lunch. But it’s not the gastronomic experience we expected for $95.00 per head.

Speaking of lunch, maybe this restaurant, and the diners, would look better during the day with the advantage of some natural light because at night, downstairs at the tables, it’s all a very unflattering beige on beige theme. If you are taking a date, sit at the downstairs bar where the lighting is kinder.

The staff are capable and friendly , the house bread is delicious and the wine list is very good.

I have eaten at many fine dining places in Melbourne and was very dissapointed in the fact that they charge $8 for their bread when it is normally a given when fine dining. The plates were extremely small for the price and the heating was way too high to enjoy the experience.
