Om Nom at the Adelphi Hotel in the Melbourne is a stylish and contemporary restaurant and bar that specializes in delectable bites and gourmet desserts, all of which achieve their goal in delighting the senses. Popular items from Om Nom's grazing menu include the flat iron steak with caramelized soy sauce, the fried goat's cheese with sage, honey and toasted almonds, the seared scallops with miso emulsion and dashi jelly and the slow-cooked lamb cannoli with tabbouleh and tzatziki foam, all of which are tapas-style. Daily breakfast is just as mouth-watering, with plates including the toasted banana bread with bacon, maple syrup and mascarpone and the savory waffle with prosciutto, gruyere cheese, anchovy and hollandaise sauce.
Try to save room for Om Nom's desserts, which are crafted by executive pastry chef Jo Ward. The irresistible Om Nom choc-nut-bomb chocolate parfait with chewy peanut caramel is a top choice.
Amazing desserts that can only be classified as art! We could not be happier with our dining experience.
We had the lunch special which was perfect for lunch. The meals weren’t large but they were delicious. So many elements and the desserts were Devine. We would loved to have had a cocktail also but they don’t do them before 5pm. Really great place, we will be back.
Amazing desserts, very beautiful to look at
Would be nice to have cocktails available all day
Fantastic venue - awesome service, awesome food - 2nd time visiting, just as great again! Highly recommended.
Amazing food, inspiring menu that delivered in appearance and taste. The service was excellent and we’ll be going back for sure
Amazing dinner experience for the birthday of my best friend !
I've been to Om Nom twice now and both times it has been exquisite. The dessert menu items are all sensational, theatrical and whimsical, and the waiters and waitresses are highly knowledgeable about all of them. The cocktails are brilliant- the Summer G&T is refreshing and sweet, and the Ladies Night Out is everything a girl could ask for!
Great restaurant for special occasions not much for vegans. The cocktails and sweets are superb.
After going here 6 months ago and having the very best service and experience I was totally disappointed on Saturday night. Firstly I booked a 90 minute dinner but the restaurant only had us booked in for 60 mins, I had proof but they didn't want to look at it as they had someone booked in straight after us. It was a special occasion, we had come from NZ for the weekend to celebrate my partners birthday, when we arrived our table wasn't ready and the people on it were moved off it for us, then we sat ignored for about 10 minutes, nothing like the wonderful experience I had on my previous visit where the waiter was engaging and entertaining. We had to ask for menus and then when the waitress returned she asked for our food order, we had to ask for a cocktail menu and explained we would like to start with that. A different waiter took our order which was beef cheeks for a main and a caramel Espresso cocktail I'd had last time & loved. This visit when the cocktail came out and she tipped the liquid nitrogen over it very fast, and there was no interaction with us, no experience, just fast like we needed to hurry up. Our mains arrived and to say they were tiny is polite, our $29 beef cheek mains was on an entree sized plate & was very small......very tasty but not enough for a main serving, we said we might need to order more she said we wouldn't have time as our table was booked....I looked confused and said we would want desert as a minimum and she had to go ask the manager who informed me we had only booked and hour we could still get desert but would have to move to the bar. Just gutted and disappointed that the one place I wanted to take my partner to dinner was turning into the biggest disappointment. we ordered desert and they arrived quickly by yet another waiter who at least explained the food and was polite and friendly. we felt pressured to quickly scoff down desert and leave. Compared to my last visit where I left 5 stars 10 /10 rating this sucked
The high tea was amazing! The savoury dishes were inventive and the sweets out of this world. The two cocktails we had were theatrical and tasty and the service was great. Would definantly go back!
The food was very good with the exception of the "main course" which was cold and greasy. To give them credit they replaced it immediately and didn't charge, which was a good response, still it shouldn't have happened in the first place!
The best High Tea in Melbourne
Dined for the dessert degustation, fantastic value for money and absolutely delicious and beautifully prepared desserts.
Service was wonderful very informative and friendly also very accommodating when i felt unwell, allowing us to move up the front for some fresh air and dine by the window.
A lovely modern high tea, the food was delicious and the staff were friendly and attentive.
A thoroughly enjoyable pre theatre dinner and drinks venue. Staff were super helpful and made sure that our meals came out promptly and well in time for us to get to our show. The food was deliciously creative. Looking forward to our next visit.
Booked for 2 for valentines dessert.
Great experience, friendly staff who offered just the right amount of attentive service (not over the top).
Desserts are beautifully presented but kind of pricey so I would only come here for a special occasion.
At the end of our meal, the waiter/host also gave me a rose and a chocolate to take away which he was a nice touch.
We were really looking forward to the Dessert degustation experience which did not disappoint however the standard of service for the price of the experience needs improvement.
Basic service standards were not met, for example, tea served without a teaspoon or serviette, water glasses were not refilled, new plates were bought out before old ones were cleared, we asked for some hot water to be brought out as the tea was quite strong by the end, which never came.
There was too little room for the waiting staff to move between tables and hence we had to move our chairs a few times and table once. On a few occasions an unoccupied chair at our table was either knocked or pushed over.
The food was amazing but incredibly little on the plate which left us 'hungry' whilst the price for the dishes were steep. Definitely poor value for money. Is it really that difficult to serve a little more on the plates?!
The staff were busy talking amongst each other rather than being attentive to the diners, so we were waiting quite a long time to order and pay.
The place looks nice, the ambiance was wonderful, the food was amazing, the space, the staff, and the portion sizes could do with improvement.
The food presentation was unique, creative and a wonderful take on 'high tea'. It was light and delicious.It didn't have the traditional scones and sandwiches, but still had the savoury and sweet elements with lovely flavour punch.
I did enjoy the atmosphere but feel it is all is a bit overrated . Have had better, more traditional high teas elsewhere but that’s not to say I had a bad time but nothing to rave about . A bit too dark and gloomy for me
Great night! Food was amazing and cocktails were visually great. Sight overuse of liquid nitrogen. Would defiantly recommend to others!
We wanted something special to finish our holiday in Melbourne; Om Nom hit the spot on all levels - food, service and atmosphere. We had a memorable night tasting some incredibly delicious food. The menu is thoughtful, inspired & creative...raspberry aioli with fries??? It all just works!! All the staff were excellent but a particularly passionate bartender who was making these masterpiece cocktails really caught my eye even though i was sitting on the other side of the room.
Christmas present for my friend, dessert & cocktails, food amazing , place gorgeous, as a chef, food, dining out is my life, a wonderful night
The service here was fantastic! Some of the food was brilliant, some was just OK. But most was really good. I’d come back for a girls cocktails night.
Great venue for late night dessert! Desserts were larger than expected so don't eat before hand. The menu was extensive and there are great gluten free options. The cocktail menu was amazing. Heaps of mock-tail options too. Will definitely be back.
This is definitely a unique dining experience, perfect for a memorable meal out. Each dish and cocktail is prepared with a unique flair; many of the flavour combinations are unlike any I've seen before making the meal all the more special.
The staff were all friendly and attentive and open to feedback.
Definitely will return!
Loved our visit to Om Nom for high tea. The service was beyond excellent with delightful wait staff who were totally there if you needed them with a lovely quiet humour, but were not at all intrusive. The food was delightful with the savory items being light and delicious, and the sweets being exquisite, but not too rich to be able to enjoy a taste of each. I'd happily return again and again - infact, I will.
First time at On Nom and I was pleasantly surprised. The cocktails were amazing and will definitely come back for more :)
Wow went there and didnt know much about the restaurant, but it was awesome,we highly recommend it, and didnt get to try there signature sweet menu, oh well will have to go back, cant wait.
This is the second time I have been to Om Nom, food is exciting and flavour combinations are a little unusual but they work.Food was better on my 1st visit where we did a degustation with the chefs selection, (I would highly recommend this). This time we ordered from the menu as we didn't want a big meal, and the food was good but not outstanding. This is a place to go for a dinning experience, and the cocktail while not traditional, are very theatrical and worth a visit alone. Give Om Nom a try
Beautiful food for Higt tea/ great variety and very tasty and filling.
Fantastic service and will be going back.
A very modern feel and quite unlike any other high tea I’ve been to.
Esquisite food that won’t disappoint! My only negative was that there wasn’t enough as it was so delicious. Medium meals are an entree not a small meal.
Gorgeous presentation and the service was excellent. I would definitely return. Loved the chocolate cigars, perfect for sharing!
Om Nom exceeds every expectation, in every possible way. This is my third time visiting over a 24 month period, for special occasions, and each and every time they deliver consistent and exquisite service, food & beverages.
Of special mention this time, it was my Mum's birthday and they could not have done more to make her feel special - thank you.
We had an amazing night!
We were celebrating our 25th Wedding anniversary.
I had heard of their amazing deserts.
The service of the staff at Adelphi & Om Nom was very personal and recommend others to have the experience.
they have unreal cocktail's the detail that goes in the drink and presentation was first class.
Whilst we celebrating our wedding anniversary, it would be suitable for 20-30YO's looking for a treat (great service, talented staff, quality food and drink presentation)
Although the meal was very good, it's the desserts at Om Nom that must be experienced. The Sticks and Stones is a chocolate lovers delight, the portion is rather large, so can easily be split by a couple.
There wasn’t anything in the menu I did not like. Tasty dishes however not sufficiently satisfying (we had feed me option which gave 5 main dishes and 4 desserts to share between 4 people) in terms of volume. Mains were lacking but plenty of desserts to compensate. We did think of ordering more mains because of this but was limited by 90 mins time limit to dine.
Dessert was delicious. Interesting combinations of textures and flavours and not sickly sweet. Cocktails were visually engaging and delicious.
I booked to take my mother as a Christmas gift.
On the day of the event- weekend high tea, I e mailed the venue to request an extra seat be added to the booking.
Given they prepare food according to booking numbers I was very happily surprised that they were able to accommodate us with a third high tea.
It was a wonderful gift, which we all very much enjoyed.
The food was exquisite; both beautiful and delicious.
The surroundings were both lovely and soothing on a hot afternoon.
We went just for dessert and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Food, cocktails and staff were amazing, will definitely return.
Had an amazing dinner at om nom! The cocktail are really fancy and tasty. The food was delicious. I had the rib and it was cooked perfectly and The peach injection as dessert which was absolutely amazing. The service also was great !I'll definitely recommend it !
