Surprised with Happy Hour drinks in the bar area before moving to our table.
Loved the Victoria by the Glass special menu offer and pricing although the number of glasses served to our large table became confusing.
Some dishes very artistic but others looked just pub-style.
The band in the bar was far too loud given the extremely low number of patrons in the restaurant.

Wait staff were incredible! Very polite and made us feel welcome. Food was lovely and we could sit there at our own pace. We didn't feel rushed at all.

Our dining experience here at Mr Hive was exceptional. The wait staff were kind, prompt and knowledgeable about the dishes.
The service was quick.
My partner and I both had the black Angus steak. He has his well done and I have medium-rare. Both were cooked perfectly.

Terrific food and value at Mr Hive however cannot say one good thing about the service. Staff were disinterested and hardly attended us. Even served our mains with no cutlery. Not good enough from a Crown ‘fine dining’ restaurant.

Staff were very attentive, didn’t appreciate being put at a table that had sun glare, lucky my husband didn’t mind and we swapped seats. The food was mostly excellent but some of it lacked seasoning

Its our go to restaurant everytime we are staying in the city or af Crown. We've been coming to this place for the last 8 years and the only.year we didn't come its because we were overseas.

The food were delicious and top notch. The service was very professional but not intrusive. They were friendly and very accommodating. Will definitely come again.

We four had a three course set dinner last night. Food and service was good. However two of my friends ordered steak which was over seasoned. They both complained that the steak was too salty. I gave my feedback to the attendant. He said he would pass our feedback however, I thought they would offer us replacement of the steak which they didn’t. I was a bit disappointed.

Very disappointing for a crown restaurant- once seated and after a considerable wait had to chase down a waiter to be served water and a drinks menu. Disgusting kingfish entree (dry and tasted like seawater) Main was ok but overpriced. Felt like we were being rushed even though we still had 40 minutes left in our seating period. Overall staff were extremely un-attentive until they placed a bill on our table. Would never recommend this restaurant to anyone or ever attend again.

This visit was for a pre-show dinner. I am sorry to say it was really nothing special, the food was ok but limited idem the wine.The staff were very helpful and pleasant which saved the location.

I had never been to Mr Hive Kitchen and Bar before so I didn’t know what to expect. The restaurant is pretty fancy and was very quiet, needed more music but food was great and drinks selections. I recommend this for a special occasion restaurant.

Next time I would like to try the other areas of the restaurant where it is more low key.

Overall I had a good time and I loved my pumpkin risotto.

Terrible experience. Food not prepared to our requests, poor culinary skills, obvious signs of complacency and ego from kitchen staff, salty and genuinely disgusting. Over priced and and mediocre.
Floor staff nice until we used a discount card. He was unprofessional and immature in his approach. Needs further training.

Loved restaurant ambience ... immediately on entering I felt excited and looked forward to our date night experience. The staff were warm, welcoming and very professional. Our waiter was friendly, listened to our requests without being intrusive. Food was scrumptious and beautifully presented. The Spanner Crab Fettuccine was divine - highly recommended! Would go back to this Restaurant in a heartbeat ... the 3 course dinner package including wine was great value! A perfect experience! 🤗

Food was absolutely amazing! Waiter that greeted us after 5 minutes at the counter was a little bit short mannered but the waiter during our meal was fantastic and very attentive. Did overhear another customer complain about wait times but for the quality of the meal they are understandable and not that long at all.

We loved our evening at Mr Hive. Great service, our waiter was very friendly and attentive all night. We ordered a few different entrees and cheese boards and shared them at the table (tapas style) for entree which was a great way to sample everything. The food was amazing, everyone at the table ordered a different main and the quality & deliciousness was exceptional all round. Perfect evening

We chose the 3 course dining menu as we though it seemed great value and were certainly not disappointed, all of our dishes from entree to desert were presented well, cooked to our request and served by our host who was very well mannered and attentive.
Will certainly be returning

This is the third time we've been to this restaurant, and will likely to be the last. Again, nice food, great restaurant, but the terrible, arrogant waiter ruins the night once again. Was told we have to order at least four mains for the four of us. I insisted on him checking the rule with the manager and then he came back saying it's ok to order what we ordered but with no apology at all. For a fine dining restaurant, the customer decides what to order, not the waiter!
