The ambience was great, service good and meal superb!
Can't say enough great things about the team at Meatmaiden. Accidentally made my booking for the wrong date and turned up on a busy Saturday night like a total idiot! Big props to Poppy and the other front of house staff who got us an awesome seat at the bar/kitchen within the hour. Enjoyed delicious steak, sides and drinks while bopping along to disco tunes and watching the grill spit fire.
Thank you a million for going the extra mile after my dumb mistake!
Food was amazing, as was the service and atmosphere.
Great experience at meat maiden. Staff welcoming and service excellent. Food also great.
From the moment we entered, we were greeted with friendly faces. Customer service was faultless. We had Meatmaiden mood set, leaving it in the hands of the Chef. My husband doesn't eat oysters and anything raw and it was really good that they accommodated our food preferences and changed our entrees to suit. Tastes were exploding in our mouths. Our favourite was the burnt ends. Steak was amazing and beef brisket was really melt in the mouth. Told the team before end it was my husband's birthday and they organised the dessert to celebrate. Thank you team, you made it a special night.
I'd been really looking forward to getting back to Meat Maiden. As always the food was amazing but I don't know what happened to the service! Layoffs? Waited 25 minutes to order our first drinks, server wasn't sure which was which when they were brought over. This happened with twice. Also a long wait to order meals.
Our waiter Simon was a delight and exceptionally helpful! Food was great as always
The food was excellent, service was fantastic, especially Evelyn, ambience is really chill. Overall great place, would come back again
nice food although old menu had
more variety. A coffee machine would be a good investment
Absolutely loved this place, the venue was cool .. very romantic. The octopus entree was incredible… loved the steak and Mac & cheese dish. Our waiter Dom was fantastic. We will be back!
Absolutely fantastic, food was delicious and service was lovely. Definitely coming back!
Delicious! The lobster mac and cheese was next level, an absolute must! The service was wonderful too.
The food and especially the midday menu are great value and really tasty but it could be a little lighter so you can read menus. Aside from that it was great.
Fantastic food. We ordered an 800g steak to share after having burnt ends(?) as an appetiser. We had a side of cauliflower and chips. We could’ve gone without the chips. It didn’t add anything special to the meal. Plenty of food for three people, and we didn’t need it but should’ve gone with another veggie side. I was disappointed they didn’t have a dark beer but the beer I ended up getting was delicious!
Delicious food and cocktails and lovely wait staff!
The food was amazing. Our server/waiter (red hair, beautiful skin) was excellent. Very friendly and personable.
We had a brilliant evening here.
Looking forward to returning
The food was very good, we had the squid and dry aged steak 800 g with roasted cauliflower. The steak was cooked very well and balanced and has a good meaty taste. The squid melts in your mouth.
The overall ambience had a nice vibe but was a bit crowded and hard to walk pass tables without thinking you will knock over a glass or candle.
Amazing value, delicious food and even better service!!!!
Great venue. very friendly staff, and a great range of drinks. the food is fantastic, and ranges from the reasonable price to those of extreme decadence. 9/10 will go again.
One of the best places to eat in Melbs! Highly recommend, especially the lobster mac and cheese!!
Great for a quick date night. Would recommend to friends and family
Wow what an experience. From the ambience to the friendly staff and the outstanding food! Cannot wait to go back :)
Wonderful treat for the family. Restaurant was flexible enough to allow us to order al la carte for the kids while adults had the set menu. Food was absolutely devine and we rolled home happy.
Great food, staff was very accommodating even tho I was very late
Great food, service and cocktails. The menu isn't huge but they executed everything very well. I would recommend it to family and friends and I will be returning again sometime.
The food was all fantastic, as were the cocktails we had at the start of our night. The only downside was we found it difficult to get drinks. Our first round of cocktails arrived after our first course, then we were unable to get the attention of any wait staff to order more drinks. Ended up having a glass of red later on, however we probably would have had a couple more drinks if it wasn’t so difficult to get service. The wait staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable but perhaps was understaffed that night.
The food was absolutely amazing, the brisket was delicious as well as the Lobster Mac & Cheese.
Despite there being room for improvement on the service side, would definitely like to come back
Delicious tasting menu. Cocktails really different and delicious. Great music and atmosphere. Slightly pricey but worth it for a special occasion.
Great steaks, great service and atmosphere. Highly recommended.
Excellent cocktails, delicious steaks and great atmosphere!
Thankyou for the evening it was special for our celebration.
It was great, good food portion and definitely good for celebrating birthday
Over priced steaks that dont come with sides. The sides though, we’re all very good! Service was a little full on, when we got in and sat down, the first 10mins of being there 4 different people came to our table and asked us if we had ordered drinks and topped up our water, it was a little full on! We were rushed out and told we couldn’t order a particular dessert because it would take too long to bake and we had to leave. I get it, fresh out of lockdown but all these things amounted to a mediocre night
Great service and ambience always a pleasure to dine here, food is outstanding the lobster Mac and cheese is a must!
Great mystique walking in, great ambiance, staff were lovely and food was great
Great time all round. Excellent service, great food and really good wine. Definately will see you again soon.
Fantastic venue and the food and staff were amazing.
food great, please include a serve chips with steak, dont make it a side only
Nice food and decent service, but not verygood value (eg 90 dollars for a tasting menu that amounts to an entree, main and side per person, plus they charged me a 20 dollar fee because one of our party didn't show up). Good meat though, as you'd hope from the name.
Lovely ambience in the restaurant, great date spot. However, the food was mediocre for the price. Steak was nothing amazing and chicken tasted very one dimensional, with way too much leek. Seemed like the waiter was new, he seemed nervous and took away our drinks that we weren't done with, without checking if we were done with them.
