European
Mosconi is a European focused Restaurant and Wine Bar, located just around the corner from the hustle and bustle of James St.
Named after a fine Northern Italian wine - Barolo Mosconi, the refined flavour and long heritage of its namesake Cru is reflected in both the food and the interior of our restaurant.
We serve modern European bistro fare in a cosy, welcoming setting. Head Chef Catherine Anders is no stranger to modern Italian fare with an impressive history including most notably the former Executive Chef of feted Il Centro. She has devised a small but robust menu that embraces the solo diners wanting a 'quick bite', but also people earning for a new consummate dining experience.

Fabulous as usual!
The food once again exceeded our expectations.
When we arrived the restaurant and surrounding area had lost power. It was very busy but the staff did a wonderful job of handling the situation. The power came back on and we were promptly seated. Our meals were all delicious and look spectacular.
Overall Superb!

Over priced for what you actually get. Worth trying for special occasions. The waiter would often forget to fill up my glass of water.

The quail was delicious. I should have asked for a main serving. But I had room for an equally delicious chocolate dessert. Everything was lovely so thank you for looking after us so well. Greatly appreciated 🙏

Went here on a Saturday night with a friend and as expected, it was really busy. I've read a lot of good reviews about the restaurant but I might need to try it again because I'm not impressed with the food and the overall service.

Service:
We were asked 5x by 3 different people if we want any drinks, this was in the first five minutes of our arrival. After that, we were asked multiple times if we were ready to order.

Food/Drinks:
I decided to get the fish of the day and it was okay, good but not $42 good. Serving size was also good. I had margarita and the rim of the glass was not properly salted and I didn't taste the lemon. And, yes - I expect a lot from a $19 drink.

Lastly, we only ordered 1 sparkling water but was charged for two. We didn't inform the restaurant as we just wanted to leave. The sparkling water was $4/glass. FYI: We were not informed that the sparkling water costs extra, the guy just asked if we want some water and what type. Most of the restaurants/cafe offer it for free. I'm not sure if it was on the menu though - we should have checked.

Is it worth it? Like $60+? No.
Would I try it again? Yes - because I think they deserve all the good reviews and I want to give them another chance.

Would really appreciate if you can assign a waiter/ waitress per table so guests wouldn't feel rushed by being asked multiple times by multiple people.

Great food in an intimate atmosphere. We were seated downstairs next to the bar and the noise from upstairs was very loud. The service could have been better but wasn't bad. Veal Coteletta was a standout.

More meat than sauce in Ragu (I left half of it).
Fish of the day fantastic, as was the bread. Smoked butter was very subtlety smoked, could have done with a bit more.
Coffee was cold although ’hot’ was requested .... I suspect the cup was cold and absorbed any heat.
Service was good
