Mr. Hive Kitchen and Bar - Crown Melbourne
For the price we paid i expected a little more....on arrival i got the death stare from a waitress for being 10 mins early i could not believe it!!
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.
Food was fantastic though the red wine jus was a little on the salty side. Great atmosphere and the perfect venue for my partner and my first anniversary dinner!!
average, we were seated in a section by ourselves so very quiet and no ambiance. The food was okay, service was attentive but we were the only ones in the section.
The two course deal was an excellent option
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
Nice food, lots of great options.
Large drink menu and lovely desserts.
Nice ambience, romantic spot.
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
Not the best service and meals over priced for what they were
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!
The service and food was outstanding.Would highly recommend this restaurant.
Lovely staff, delicious cocktails and great deals on meals and wine
My husband and I have dined at Mr Hive several times over the past 6 months. It is fantastic pre-show dining venue. The staff is incredibly friendly and very attentive to your various requests. It is delightful to encounter such professionalism and shared humour with the waiters. The food is beautifully presented and there is a wide range of choice when choosing wine. Thank you to one and all at Mr Hive Kitchen and Bar.
The food was very tasty but the main course could have been a little warmer. The service was excellent.
The food was excellent, as was our waiter. But the kitchen was painfully slow and the pacing of our dishes really ruined our meal.
Had a beautiful dinner here. Our Waiter was perfect and we couldn't fault a single thing.
our dinner reservation was for 6pm.
The restaurant was quiet and they looked after us well.
Once we ordered our meals, and the restaurant started to get busier, the service was slow.
Entre came and went, and I had to ask the waiter at 8pm, when was our main going to be served?
we were ready to walk out. no food, no drink service and we were hungry.
I ordered John Dory. It was dry, covered with butter and the texture and taste was as if it were frozen.
We had an excellent evening. No special occasion just a dinner with my wife local to our home. The food, wine service and atmosphere were perfectly matched to our mood. The value for money was good. Only 1 problem the choice of after dinner liqueurs was very limited.
The restaurant was good however the staff service at the bar was extremely poor. We sat down to enjoy pre-drinks and live music, 1 menu was given to a group of 7 people, were told to head to the bar to order if no one comes to take orders, drinks were served without coasters or straws and the bill were brought to us immediately for paymen, before all drinks were served and even when we have dinner booking. The staff requires significant training in hospitality and customer service.
Front desk person extremely helpful and friendly. Waiter was very short, didn't explain things and we needed to keep calling him over to ask questions about the meals etc..
No personality and was bordering on rude.
Although lacking atmosphere, the food and service at Mr Hive were top rate. My husband had the braised wagyu cheek and it was “to die for”!!! Melt in the mouth delicious. The 3 course offer, including 2glasses each of Victorian wine was excellent value. We are not normally dessert people, but the lemon tart & vanilla brûlée were also delightful. A enjoyable gastronomic evening!!
It started at the bar with Anthony whom is always a delight, remembers who I am and of course, is the procurer of the excellent popcorn.....
The (Indian) waiter was excellent, attentive, and made a great recommendation for a bottle of red at a reasonable price.
I don’t usually order a steak at anything other than a steakhouse specialist but ordered the ribeye (on the bone as turned out) and it was better than most steakhouse specialists that I’d experienced.
Side dishes were excellent.
Wonderful dinner, for my husbands 45th Birthday, the food was great.
My only annoyance was that I had made a special note that it was my husbands birthday, and it was not acknowledged.
Other than that, the waiters were attentive and we had a memorable night.
Great food, good service and friendly waiters. You could see they enjoyed working there.
Anthony at the bar is very friendly and our waiter was very respectful and professional.
Our evening was very enjoyable and we will be back.
Great looking restaurant, it has all the making of a great restaurant, but service ?? The restaurant was near empty, but we felt rushed as soon as we entered the venue. The table felt sticky, side plate did not move easy? after touching the table it felt like your hands had glue on them.
Quality of drinks, no beer glass offered with 2 bottles of beer? wine was excellent. Food quality was average.
My mums Xmas present dinner at the hive and the sepremes at the palms and we had a great night.
The service was great, the food was amazing.
We really enjoyed the meal and service was excellent.
Absolutely loved the food and service, the only down fall was staring into the sun for the duration of the meal
Nice food and good service.
The 3 course with wine is exellent value
We came in to try the place prior to making a group booking. The online reviews we read before were very mixed.
I am pleased to say we had a very positive experience. Food was great and excellent VFM, esp as wine was included too.
Service was very attentive and the waiter paid attention but was not overbearing.
We have made the group booking and will be returning very soon.
I loved the ambience and the overall atmosphere of the restaurant.
The services were excellent. The staff were very friendly and welcoming.
I find the menu to be very limited especially "Entree". We ordered grilled lamb rack and requested well done but the meat was slightly undercooked. So in that regard, it wasn't worth the spent, I guess.
However, I like to visit again as overall I liked the restaurant.
Great venue, exceptional staff, quality wine and fantastic food
Four of us had dinner, we all chose different meals and we all enjoyed each one. The staff were very helpful and friendly, will definitely eat here again.
Quick service due pre-theatre. Gluten free option was no problem for staff.
Was greated and looked after very well. We had a few drinks at the bar and moved on to dinner.
Wanted to specially thank May who was a great waitress and made sure we had a great dinning experience.
Good food good atmosphere and friendly helpful staff
Never had a bad meal at this place but last night we had our best meal and not to mention value for money. 3 course meal and 2 glasses of wine for $67. Will definitely come back to this place again.
