Stunning venue with friendly and attentive staff. Giuseppe looked after us, his suggestions for food and cocktails were spot on, and the somm was excellent at helping us choose our wine. We had a large array of starters that couldn't be faulted, will definitely be back.

Our waitress was excellent. Knowledgeable and thoughtful, she even organised a last minute birthday plate and candle when she saw my friend give me a gift. She really went above and beyond for us.

We had the chef's menu and were blown away. There was so much food! And all of it delicious. Elevated and creative but not pretentious or unapproachable (which can be a thing in Melbourne) Nailed it.

A great atmosphere and generally beautiful venue. We can't wait to return. A big thank you.

I also love returning to Hazel. Great cocktails and an interesting modern menu. I would be happy to try every dish!
The atmosphere is classy, warm and friendly.
Impeccable food. I loved the duck liver parfait and the octopus was exceptional too.
Can’t wait to return.

I would be very embarrassed to assign my name to this restaurant. I haven’t experienced such a lovely establishment cut so many corners.

It was 120 per person and all we got was a pre prepared charcuterie board that seemed like it was from Woolworths as a main dish! Some over cooked deep fried couchettes that had no flavor besides fatty oil, they served a so called buffalo mozzarella which was way to firm and no flavor, a seafood platter which the waiter called „from the ocean“ it would have been nice to know exactly where from, and it was nothing of great value, the tuna tasted like it had been defrosted, the Scallops tasted very cold and not the creamy texture one would want in a fresh scallop. Lastly was a steak and baked potato. These were cooked well and had nice flavor but nothing you personally couldn’t do at home.

Overall it felt as though the chef behind tonight’s service has given up on all accounts. There was no sign of personality in his/hers or all of the chefs cooking. Actually there was no cooking done. The only thing that was cooked was the stake, it actually seemed like a catered event which maybe it was but was hidden behind the idea of an "experience " which was completely underwhelming.

There is no way in any world if I was a chef would I put my reputation behind tonight’s food.

We arrived on time to be told that our table wasnt ready and to wait at the bar and have drink while they prepared the table. After 5 min of waiting I asked one of the wait staff behind the bar if we could order drinks and she mentioned that they are short staffed due to staff getting Covid. I was shocked. The restaurant wasnt overly busy. So we waited a little longer to order our drinks. When the table was ready then we were escorted to the table. Overall the food was not anything to rave about - pretty average. I was not impressed with the ambience of the room.

Started off great with attentive service and beautiful entrees but the service dropped off and the steak main was not as good we we expected. Would still go again but not as great an experience as we’d hoped for

Everything was fabulous but it was too noisy, we asked the waitress to lower speaker volume but this wasn’t done.
There was a lot of noise particularly due to the open kitchen and hard surfaces, as architects we appreciated the ambience, design, etc, but you could easily introduce some sound absorbing materials to help the noise factor.

The food was not at a standard we expected. We were charged for a bottle of wine we didn’t have - we barely received any sort of apology. Was very disappointed.

The food was delicious but some of the veggie options seemed to lack that centrepiece element. That said I’d still return for all of those dishes and sauces. Service from all the staff was fantastic, welcoming and friendly. Great job to the team! Only other thing is that the music was a little loud so sometimes was hard to hear when someone was talking. Otherwise an amazing night and amazing staff with delicious food!

Great service and food but did not even get time to order a dessert before we were told to leave as our 2 hour slot was done!! We ordered promptly and did not linger over any of the courses but when we asked if we could order dessert the waitress was over ruled by someone and we had to leave!! Won’t be going back!

Soo disappointed with this restaurant. I booked for 6 people and I didn’t booked for fix menus but when we start to order they said we came 6 people so we have to go with fixed menu only. So bad bad. And the service is so bad too so disappointed ☹️

We had a fabulous long lunch . We were on the second floor which is amazing overlooking the food prep. Our waitress Jenny was so accomodating , professional and knowlegable . Our guests were demanding at certain times and Jenny took it in her stride with a smile . We ordered a lot of share plates ,actually we ate so much ,but everything was fresh ,local and delicious . Hightly reccommend the whole experience . Well done. Love the fact the menu is seasonal will def be back .
