My only feedback was we happened not to receive our complimentary crackers and dip on arrival - as each other table did - however the staff very kindly allowed us to try these at the end of our meal and we were very grateful. Food, venue, service 10/10, will definitely be back! Thank you.

The best restaurant experience I’ve had in ages. A refreshing new addition to the high caliber restaurant scene in Melbourne. I’ll be back as soon as possible!

Let me just say the food was outstanding and loved every innovative dish that we tried. However the noise level with no soft furnishings, loud speaker and general noise was most annoying and would actually stop me going back. It is a restaurant where people meet, have a meal and converse however with the music playing that night I couldn’t hear my friends across from me. It really was off putting and I was really uncomfortable and annoyed. It’s a shame because I feel it has a lot to offer and has great potential. I really enjoyed the cuisine . Nothing like it in Melbourne! But something has to be done about the noise level. Add some soft furnishings and maybe problem solved. I live The bar downstairs and have been several times. The staff here are fantastic

Recently dined at Hazel. From the moment we arrived greeted by host and made to feel very welcome. Arrived early so had a cocktail downstairs in Dessous. Dark and decadent bar. Personally escorted upstairs when our table is as ready.
Table was at a banquette for 2 and separated from other tables so could not hear conversations. Attention to detail wonderful and staff are incredible. The food was amazing, delicious combinations. Already looking forward to our next experience and will highly recommend. Thank you Hazel x

Hazel is a beautiful venue, staff warm, professional and efficient. Only but and it is big BUT is the resonance created by no acoustic solutions provided to counter balance all of the hard services.

But with a reservation - the noise level made it very difficult. Perhaps we were the wrong demographic - too old. I do not understand why restaurants feel that it is imperative to have music - people are generally there with friends to talk. I realise that the younger generations need noise, I have a 29 year old son, however, it does not add to the evening. Perhaps restaurants should include whether or not they play background music in their advertising?

We sat at the bar and can see everything happening in the big open kitchen. The chefs worked so well and syncs together.
The food amazing like the idea of sharing, especially the chilling dressing of the oysters and the mussels on toast. So good!!!
The services was excellent, very relaxed and friendly. We had a great time.

Good food, but service was terrible. Booked for 8.30pm for a group of 6, which we had to wait 30 minutes and continual checking with the staff on when it would be ready. My friends and I all had to wait around at the bar downstairs scattered around, hungry and thirsty.

We had a group of seven and everyone of us said we would be back. The aesthetics and mood is wonderful, the open space with an excellent view of the kitchen is enticing. I am a fan of the music 60's & 70's brings back memories. We enjoyed the chefs menu - 6 courses plus desert. Each course was beautifully prepared with great flavours. Definitely will be back very soon.

100% beautiful - Amazing food, drinks and genuine, professional service. We loved everything. The whole dining experience is stunning too both downstairs, and upstairs where we ate. (And Dessous is perfect for an evening drink!) Thank you so much - Can't wait to come back.

Finally an elegant but casual restaurant that serves simple but exquisite food in a gorgeous venue that doesn't try to pack in the tables so you overhear what the table next to you is discussing. Every course was a taste sensation of perfect proportions and priced well. The staff (including kitchen staff) were delightful and answered all our questions. Cant wait to go back and try more! Actually felt quite at home there with the tasteful decor.

What a fantastic entry into the famed Flinders Lane culinary strip. Simple and delicious food in an ambient environment sans any pretence.
The service was friendly and engaging.
It won't be long before those queuing in the street for a Chin Chin table abandon post and just walk on over.
