Booked in for my partner’s birthday dinner and was very disappointed. Did not enjoy the food and I think the music was too loud.

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.

Food was so delicious, and the 95 chef menu was the perfect amount of food. Would definitely eat there again! I'd come back just for the killer potatoes... drool!

Although the Menu seems to have changed very recently (with the departure of the Head Chef) and they did not have the very interesting "On Toast" selections I had read about and intended to order I still enjoyed the experience - it is the type of restaurant that Melbourne does very well.

Very elegant room, very spaced tables, beautiful food, just realised afterwards that it was actually very difficult to digest, due to butter and cream, I suppose. the wines by the glass choice could be a bit more extensive

We had a great meal, and throughly enjoyed our meat-dominant food. We would need a few more vegetarian/vegan options, though, before we could bring some of our friends.
The sommelier was great, friendly and knowledgeable.
We’ll certainly be back.

We loved our dining experience at Hazel. We could tell straight away that there was a lot of detail put into every aspect, from the fit out through to each dish. The house made produce was especially outstanding, with the starting courses being our favourite! We will definitely be back.

What a wonderful evening at hazel - id organised the dinner with a wonderful melbourne firend i hadnt seen in 12mths & to celebrate my upcoming birthday - excellent & attentive wait staff, a good wine menu, great food - we'll definately be back - i did feel though that $24 for a side of potato's was a little excessive - perhaps offer a half serving!

I came here to celebrate a special milestone in my friend’s career. It was actually the second time I came in two days (if that tells you anything!) and the staff remembered me and seated me downstairs, as opposed to upstairs, so I had a different seat. The food was spectacular as always. I particularly like the intuitive service; staff are very good at offering as much or as little attention as you need. The wine selection is incredible. I will definitely come back again and again.

A great place with a really nice atmosphere. The restaurant has a really nice feel to it and the décor finds the right balance of sophistication without feeling to formal.
We went with the $75 fixed menu which was really nice, the amount of food was just about right although if we went back we probably would have spent the extra money and got an extra main course. Overall a great place, with good service, good food and a nice atmosphere.

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.
