Fantastic food and atmosphere! Great way to spend time while enjoying amazing food. Music got a little loud at one point then evened out and was fine

Food was nice and tasty. However it feels like with the new location, cost are being cut. Typical less for more. No longer received a share platter of sides for the table, instead only got fries for the table, the only other side dish was some cod lettuce leaves that were put on your plate for you by the waitress.
Also, it’s no longer ‘all you can eat’ style. At the old location you could choose your favourite meat/s and have more of them at the end. This is no longer the case, you get a little bit of each and that is all. Would be helpful if the wait staff explained this at the start, instead we were advised when being seated that it was ‘all you can eat’ style and you can have more of whatever you liked. We waited for about 30 minutes at the end to be offered more of our favourites, to be ignored. Won’t be rushing back anytime soon. In fact was going to bring a group of 10 in for lunch this week and have instead changed the location. Oh well... it’s a shame, because the food I ate was actually delicious!

Would only recommend to a friend as they may have a better experience than my partner and i.
Another friend of mine, who is a regular, said it was a little off par the night, my first time, that we went

Unfortunately we didn’t have a great experience like we have in the past.
I understand this was the second last day of trade at honeysuckle so things were not as 5 star as the last times there. Service was not as friendly as in the past and the table next to us complained almost the whole time we were seated which set the mood as a dull. Hopefully a lot better next time at the new place! New drinks menu is a bit bizarre compared to the old one

Generally disappointing meal from a restaurant that I've only heard good things about. We had the "trial" menu but felt like the menu still needs some consideration and/or further rehearsal. Music was loud, expectations weren't met, and prices were still high for a menu that should still be under review and training.

Had a booking for last Saturday evening. Service was extremely slow at the start and took us more than 30mins to order a bottle of wine and some water.

Staff were lost as we had 3x different staff members come to talk to us to confirm whether our booking was the Churrasco or not.

Food took quite some time before it started, and the first few courses were slow, then the rest came in a bit of a rush. Chips were delicious as was the meat, but coleslaw and salad portions were too small in my opinion.

I may try again but dont think i will do the Churrasco next time around.

We were very disappointed. We had friends try MEET when it first opened and they loved it! However, it seems as though with time, they’ve slackened on their service. 1 hour and 45 minute sitting but with only half hour left we’d only tried 2 small tastings of meat and 2 sides. After we let the staff know they got onto our food straight away but it was too much to squeeze into half hour so we didn’t enjoy it! They forgot our dessert, we had to ask for it. And nearly over charged! If they didn’t overbook, people would have a much better experience eating here! Not enough staff for the amount of people booked! At $55 per person, it’s very overpriced, and that’s an understatement!!! We would’ve received much better value for money eating at our local pub. Nearly $800 later for our table, we definitely won’t be returning!

I’m sure with the change going on things are quiet busy amongst your staff and I’ve worked in hospitals so I understand working a busy night. Unfortunately on Saturday night we did not have a good as time as we did the first time we came. The options that stay on the table (chips, rice and beans) were only refilled once and that was after we request they be refilled. Staff visits were very few between and we felt as though communication between staff members was lacking.

Got there and promptly guided to our table, then everyone around us were being served and we were left there staring at waitstaff, after 20 minutes I got the attention of the head waiter whom apologised and then made sure we were being served 5 minutes later . Food was nice but the delicacy of chicken hearts were way over cooked. Waitstaff were friendly and knowledgeable of the products being served. Still would recommend as was still an enjoyable evening.

Great food great atmosphere, will definitely be back again, only problem was the staff tried to rush us as we had finished our meal, maybe due to more customers waiting for a table

Food was great as was the service but not really an all you can eat restaurant as advertised as the food is brought to the table in small portions. None came around a second time. We left hungry. Good experience to do though.

Not the greatest experience. Food was good but mostly chicken, and I think it comes to the price of the meat. Paying over $60 per person, spending in total over $450 I would expect more beef, at least to be offered. It was only single serve of beef, all the others was mostly chicken. To get more salad, water or even plate we had to ask for. So, overall not the greatest experience. For this price we could go to much nicer place and have much higher quality meet. It is very unlikely we will revisit this place.

I celebrated my birthday at meet and it was outstanding! I had so many good recommendations about this place and they were definitely fulfilled! Only downside is we were a later siting and would liked to try some things again but could not as the kitchen seemed to be closing, which was Abit upsetting! Other than that was a great experience will definitely be back!

The food was lovely, the service pleasant and not intrusive. However it felt like a production line, and it was made VERY clear that we had to be out within 1.5 hours. At $55 per head, unless you are a really big eater it was not really good value for money. I have been to Churrasco restauarants previously and have never felt as rushed as we did.

The food was ok and plentiful but despite wanting a 7pm sitting on a Thursday night we were rung and told to be on time at 6:30 as we’d have to be out by 7:45. So it was interesting seeing people being seated at 7 and more interesting after feeling rushed the whole meal and even frowned upon for asking for more (banana fritters) beautiful as they were. It was interesting to see the number of vacant tables. Great concept guys my 6th visit but don’t blantently push

I’ve been coming to MEET regularly ever since it opened. I found Saturday evening very disappointing compared to Previous visits. It took 15 minutes to be served and we did not receive some of the dishes that were coming around. We missed the beef rump which is my favourite and when it did finally come as we requested it was so over cooked and tough we couldn’t eat it. It was so loud in there me and my partner had trouble chatting. Very disappointing indeed, the staff were very slow and were very stingey with serves. I won’t be rushing back anytime soon.
