    Fabulous evening and not too busy as we were hoping for a quiet dinner…. Great food as ever…tartare was really out there…with some distinct and impressive tweaks from the ordinary, subtle heat and moreish texture. Burrata sublime…and just the right touch of herb/jus to make it zing. Grilled marinaded trout fillet a welcome surprise, too…subtle, spot on…perhaps shouldn’t have ordered the delicious chats as they were surplus to requirements…dish stands well on its own. Only off note would be the risotto…which in other circumstances would be lovely, but really flawed by the inclusion of unheralded Brussels sprouts (that divisive veggie) which all but overpowered the plate….we hate them, some love them but it would be nice if it was mentioned in the menu…. Wines (well, wine list) superb…from a half bottle of yarra yerring to the relatively accessible Novum PN (though the list oozes with delicious, if pricey, burgundies). Notably, and I wish it was in my reach, they carry Ch. Musar, two good vintages…give them a go if you have the funds…it’s possibly one of the best value (even at $300!) wines they have. Staff were lovely, spry and engaging on what must be a pretty difficult shift at the end of the weekend. Altogether a great night, thank you….but next time please keep the brassicas away!!!

    Nice hotel but the noise level was so high that we could not hear each other talk. The food was ok with 3 meals unsatisfactory and 1 meal (fish) was good. We all decided we would not return and certainly not for a friday lunch. As far as the service was concerned, we were told a couple of times to wait, "I will be there in a minute". Not enough staff. My coffee also arrived and was luke warm. For $320 for 4 people for one course and a couple of drinks was excessive.

    Sunday early evening dinner. Staff were sleepy, atmosphere was dated. Place lacked sparkle.

    Food is exceptional. Service is second to done, especially the lead waiter. Cant remember if its Paul or Phil but he's been there for years and we love him. Nothing he doesn't know about wine also. One of my fav places.

    Great choices, with specials, this time I went for the smallest 200g Steak and it was cooked to perfection and with pepper sauce one of the best I've had apart from my and my partners own cooking, bloody excellent, just make sure you order some greens, I eventually got some broccolini also beautifully cooked. I've been many times and prefer being outside as, like many restaurants, it can get quite noisy inside, not a fan of raucous humans, especially when they get to the fake forced loud laughter stage, anyway I digress. I was happy to see that a more permanent alfresco choice will be available, and I'm happy to be outside rain or shine. Knowing Lamaro's it will be well appointed and weather tight. I will return.

    Thank you so much for the detailed review. We are so glad you enjoyed your perfectly cooked steaks. We are very grateful to have an exceptional team. You'll be pleased to know our more permanent outdoor section is about a couple more weeks out. This will be the perfect area to dine rain, hail or shine! We look forward to seeing you again soon.

    Brilliant food as always and a comprehensive wine list. Great wait staff but a tad rowdy, but with the restaurant being packed it was understandable ... never fails to impress.

    Staff are always attentive and friendly. Cauliflower and falafel salad was delicious as was the red duck curry. Scallops with pork belly were dry and over cooked.
