2nd time to the restaurant and first time having the tomahawk steak. It's a fantastic place and that steak with the bone marrow sauce was outstanding.

The interior was great and the restaurant had a great atmosphere, however, the food felt overpriced for what it was and the service was pretty poor. The girl that was serving us made us feel as though we were an annoyance whenever she had to interact with us.

My partner and I dined at Mjolner to celebrate his Birthday. We both were blown away by the experience. It was the thoughtful gestures that made our night extra special. These included a complementary drink to do a toast after being seated, being able to choose our own unique knives to carve our meat with, and more pleasant surprises. The theme is very well executed in the decor, the drinks selection and cuisine. Not to mention the cocktails were a delight. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was amazing although it would be great to have the option of a smaller serve of red meat. Definitely very protein heavy so arrive with an empty stomach! Loved the signature bone marrow - it was heavenly! Would definitely go back to both restaurant and bar. Thank you to the staff for a memorable avd wonderful night.

Quite enjoyed the experience and overall Viking theming. I liked what they’d set out to achieve.

Music choice was odd given the heavy Viking theming but what ever works I guess...

Food was great and more filling than expected. Nice theming with the knife selection and beer horns.

Service could be improved, unsure if it was because we were in a booth downstairs but our waiter forgot numerous drink orders throughout the night including a birthday treat mentioned midway through the night.

He then left us to split our own bill at our table with the eftpos machine saying we can walk ourselves through it and then he didn’t come back to collect it or the receipts. After waiting 10 mins or so we figured that must be it and made our way outside.

Will go back again if invited by others but won’t be booking myself. Nice to have given it a go.

Our waitress was amazing - we were blown away by the food and loved that our vegan was so thoughtfully catered for. Our birthday girl had a fantastic night and we all enjoyed the theatre of the dining experience especially choosing our own knives and drinking from the beer horns. Topping it all off was the amazing birthday card and gift (shot glass)! What a wonderful night- thank you all!

Came here for my birthday dinner with friends and was lucky enough to get a secluded booth downstairs away from the noise of the bar. I love the ambiance and the entertainment we get from watching our server pour our flaming beverages with no fear. Speaking of our server, his fun and mildly sarcastic energy really suited our group, we all loved him.
The feast was excellent, absolutely delicious and satisfying, no one left hungry. The experience and the flavours are so worth the price. Skål

Being a Scandi I absolutely loved the atmosphere. The service started out a little low until our guy came and showed us our table.
Drinks were fantastic, a little disappointed that they didn’t have spiced rum as a drink, but later found out it came with desert.
Starters were out of this world. Bone marrow and fermented salmon. Yum!!!!
Unfortunately the mains let us down. They were cooked to perfection, but we didn’t like the taste. Overall it was a fantastic experience, but expensive.

My second time to Mjolner and it has not dissappoint me. Brought a friend there for our birthday and the little quirks that the place bring has been a highlight (whiskey from thor's hammer, welcome mead drinks). Those bone marrow and the whiskey shot with the bone was just the perfect way to celebrate birthday in a new way. The clams was outstanding with the buttery sauce and tho the chicken and the wagyu was great mains, i could not stop thinking about the brussel sprouts side dish. I'd probably give the cucumber a pass next time as the side. But cocktail and the desserts were equally great, contributing to the night. Would definitely return.

Needed a restaurant to take Dad to and could not have chosen better! Meat was amazing and the whole Viking theme from the “skôl” mead shot at the start of the meal to choosing your own knife to eat with was enjoyable from start to finish. The two Scottish lads who served us throughout the night were hospitable, friendly and great representatives of the restaurant. The only slight slight point would be that the apple crumble waffle had fairly large chunks of sugar on the top that dad didn’t like as much, but that was a very tiny part of an almost perfect meal! Amazing.

We absolutely love this place! Food was delicious - we had the bone marrow, venison, pork, wagyu beef, chicken and vegetarian dishes, all cooked to perfection. Drinks were reasonably priced and we thoroughly enjoyed drinking out of horns and using a hand-carved knife. Our main waitress was extremely friendly and helpful, as were the others. We felt really looked after and made to feel special. The evening was not rushed either and in the end, we all agreed it was value for money. The vibe/atmosphere was almost perfect - not sure about the type of music (rap/dance) played for this Scandinavian/viking-inspired restaurant, but it did not take away too much for the overall enjoyable experience. We would definitely recommend Mjolner Melbourne for any occasion and will most certainly be back! Thank you Mjolner!
