Music was too loud.
Food was very good however kipflers were bland.
$24 for the potato and eggplant dishes is way too much given their size.
The service people ignored us when we walked in, instead to continue their conversation and despite knowing we were there. The table service was very good, friendly and polite but their weren’t enough staff and we had to wait 5-10mins every time we ordered a drink because we couldn’t get anyone’s attention.
Vintage floral serving plates don’t seem to match rest of aesthetic.
Pork and beef mains were exceptionally tasty

Last minute decision to dine out, picked at random.
Very impressed. Staff well trained in their menu. Drinks attended to perfectly not over attentive but glass not aloud to empty. Food was excellent from the artisan bread, raw fish and mains. Desert did not disappoint either. I will say this I’m not a huge salad fan but here it was fresh crisp and flawless.
We will return.

Got the surprise of dessert from Hazel. They wrote the ‘Happy Bday’ with the candle which was really nice. The service was good. Love and enjoy the atmosphere. Black Forest (cocktail) tasted too sweet, but love Apple Gimlet

My friend and I went for the chef's menu to share. The $75 option was as much as we could eat. The dishes were fresh, delicious and well presented. Staff were available whenever you wanted them, without being intrusive. The wine list was reasonably priced and had a good, varied offering. Definitely returning.

Absolutely loved our night out for my husbands birthday, the food was really lovely (so glad we opted for the chefs banquet) and so was the service. Very lucky to have had this special night just before lockdown!

Beautiful clean space with inviting ambiance. (Probably would have preferred to be away from the front door for a special occasion.)
Service was friendly, informative and warm. Experienced wait staff.
Entrees were very good.
Main: the pork was a disappointment. Chewy skin and under-rendered fat meant a huge layer of gelatinous fat around the pork. the meat itself was fine.
the fish was nice enough but when the tomatoes are the standout on the dish, I guess you might be left wanting a bit.
Dessert was fun but not ground-breaking.
All and all, a nice night out with clean solid Australian food.

After arriving only shortly after realising I had been stood up on a date, the team at Hazel made what could have been a rather lonely and embarrassing evening amazing. Excelling in making the vibe perfect for one, dining at the bar is by far my favourite, however the dining room both upstarts and ground level are stunning. To finish off the sister bar down stairs Hazel could be my new fav hang. food... next level.

Great food, went for set menu and was a little disappointed that we only got a small fish and rocket salad, thought it would be a bit more substantial and showing off some of their finer dishes

The innovation of the chef’s menu using great produce with enhanced simple flavours is sensational.
We were a family group of 11 from ages 23 to 70 and the overwhelming appeal and satisfaction was unanimous.
We started with 11 vodka martini’s again simple Aus vodka & a twist of lemon.....
The meal was stunning and the service impeccable too.

The brevity of the menu is deceptive. The options and combinations were explained with enthusiasm by staff and quickly dispelled my reservations. The food was very tasteful and of high quality. Staff were attentive throughout the night. It was a great night and a great dining experience.
