A rip off! Totally dissapointed & won’t be back! I booked Meet for my hubbys birthday lunch as a special outing. I’d been blown away by this restaurant a year ago for dinner service. Got a call an hour before our lunch reservation to inform me that we would be getting a BANQUET SERVICE. Instead of the all you can eat that I enjoyed last time. It was $86, for a meat and veg banquet and a kids meal, no drinks, just tap water. My man received two small silver trays with a bit of meat, I received a big fat salad and then we received exactly: one tiny tiny bowl of hot chips, two other vege sides, a tiny piece of garlic bread and a mini one bite piece of cheesy garlic bread and four tiny slices of deep fried banana. We were soooo dissapointed! DO NOT do the lunch banquet. It’s horrible. No energy, no good vibes, just out and out dissapointed. Such a shame & a waste of time. I’m a busy working mum but I absolutely had to take time out to write a true review because it was that bad and I don’t want anyone else to feel so dissapointed. Perhaps the evening menu and service is still wonderful? I hope so.

OK only real feedback is as a customer you don't want to feel like you are being processed even though you are so the mechanics of this need to be less visible.Unfortunately you have a noise problem in the acoustics of your space which echo and bounce conversation and music around so as to make it difficult to hear conversation at your own table.Having said that I come for the food and while I don't have exacting standards around my mostly vegan philosophy in love and life I do imagine a lot of cross contamination may be going on behind the scenes which may not suit more exacting standards of some vegans most of whom would never show at your restaurant just on principle.These considerations aside I think you are offering one of the best vegan cuisines in NSW

Food was great, service was terrible, was told we would be sat outside and I would have preferred to have been told that before my arrival, we were then offered blankets which were given to a table that came in after us and then told ‘we don’t have anymore’ by a waitress with awful atttitude (which I think was the manager) an older woman dealing with other complaints in other tables.

Luckily the food was nice or we probably would have complained also, it seemed understaffed and because of that all the staff was busy and all had attitudes, could have been a much better experience than it was and to be honest because of that I don’t think I will be back.

Work on your overall team service and maybe hire more staff and I think you can provide a much better overall experience for your customer!

Food quality was good although rather salty. Got seated right under bright lights in the front of the servery area and weren't able to change table, wasn't really a nice spot to spend a couple of hours and really took away from the dinner experience. The staff members were hit and miss, with a couple being really polite and others not helpful at all. Overall I would go once or twice, but not a kind of place I would go multiple times a year.

Overpriced for what we got, sides are very basic . Churros undercooked. Cocktails were squished into small glasses, looked like my kitchen glasses not restaurant style( unless you are going for minimalist look). Waitress kept calling me darling then couldn’t remember which table I was on! (If you are going to be overfamiliar be familiar first)
Underwhelmed by the experience.

Would normally give a 10/10 easily! But I wasn’t a fan of the changes to the menu plus when the Pineapple came out we where given the core and it was too hard too eat.

The staff are all lovely and super friendly but I just didn’t enjoy the food as much as I would of normally, hopefully was just a one off.

Whilst we loved the array of meats that was served, we believe it would improve to have some vegetables As the sides just didn’t compliment the meats, 1 of our guests had the vegetarian option which was great.. so even just the Veges on a skewer., I do realise it’s call MEET but get this would add to the overall experience. We didn’t ask for anything extra except the cheese bread and to our disappointment this took half an hour to get to the table and when it did there were only 4 portions yet 8 of us at the table. Our 2nd drinks menu was forgotten and after seeing staff talking amongst themselves I thought we should ask again considering it had been 25minutes on this also.
The only other thing we would suggest is to slow the Serving down, we could hardly get through anything as 3 staff were at the table together, this left them confused also as some of us missed out on some meats as our plates were full and they must have thought they had already given it to us. It was a quiet night so perhaps that is why so many was serving all at once, but would be nice to remember what each item was as we were eating rather than have a plate full of everything.
Other than the suggestion of the added veges and the couple of errors made we had an enjoyable night.

Service at the Meet was overall pretty good. Started off with server getting us excited for what was to come. Waiting staff spilled food on clothing, and lacked personality. Some meat was better than others. We went to restaurant to try ribs which they had "run out of". Left full, overall unique experience but not something I'd rush back for. Kids menu available, a bit expensive for quality of meat. They need to expand on sides offered.

Food was great however service was horrible.
Started off alright but then had to wait 30+ minutes after the first 4 meats were given to us to get the next and then once 2 other larger groups came into the restaurant we were absolutely ignored. Our table was right next to the kitchen so we were watching all the food being taken out and given to all other tables. I heard the waitress’s asking tables if there were things they would like to taste again and we were never asked. We weren’t asked if we would like to order more drinks either. They eventually came to our tables but it was to clear our plates (our cards were still facing up, that clearly didn’t matter) unfortunately we left hungry and disappointed after feeling ignored

Nice food, lacked good service, all the workers seemed like they just wanted to get home. Spoke to the Manger regarding our disappointment and she apologised saying she has had a high turnover of staff of late. Sorry, that’s not my problem it’s hers. For a Manger she seemed to be in the friend zone with her staff. I think they need an older more experienced person running the restaurant.

Very noisy. Skimpy with portion size when they cut the meat off the skewer. The whole card up/down system didnt work. Initially we got food within 5mins of sitting down but then had a period of 15-20mins where no one came near us. Food was yummy but I wasn't overly full when I left. Value for money, it is expensive for the amount of food you receive or not receive as our case was.
