Good, imaginative dishes nicely presented. Bit noisy and tables a bit too close to each other. Limited menu which is okay as long as it's changed regularly.

Our main reason for visiting was to have the duck but despite being on the online menu it wasn’t available. Apart from that everything else was excellent

We were greeted cordially and shown to our table. waited a while and then had to ask for menus. Eventually was able to order drinks. My wife's drink a Lemon Lime and bitters came within a couple of minutes.I had ordered a glass of Shiraz which did not come. After some 20 minutes later I reminded the waitress that I was still waiting for my drink. She apologised that she had forgotten my drink. I did eventually receive my drink on the house.

Was fantastic, yes service was a little slow at times, but the food was brilliant! Trout cigars were delicious as was the duck for two. But the winner was the liquid cheese cake and sorbet. Great date night spot!!!

Lovely restaurant but feels a little forced. The service was friendly but quite slow. Food was nice.

I was disappointed in the lack of choice in the menu. It is exactly the same as the "practice Omnia".
The food we had was good but not great (except for the salmon cigar which is sensational), We'd probably give it another try because it's so well situated for a meal near the cinemas.

Our first visit to Omnia with a party of six. Very pleased with the friendly and attentive staff, excellent food and the feel of a NY restaurant. We'll be back.

Went for a birthday dinner. The food was excellent. Really high standard food. Excellent quality. Fantastic duck. The only complaint I had was that I called and told them it was a birthday dinner and they asked for whom. They didn't acknowledge it when we were there, so I didn't see why they asked. But it is a must for food and wine.

I have dined here two times and on both occasions the food, service and drinks were exceptional!!! The ambience and setting is close to perfection and the food, from entree to dessert, truly is divine. The ocean trout cigars and the liquid centre cheesecake with blackberry sorbet are a must! Special shout out to Ryan and co working the bar and Kevin for his impeccable floor managing skills. I can't wait to go back again!

All lovely but music was too loud for good conversation, which is the whole point of going out instead of having friends around. We'd hesitate to recommend for that reason, which is a shame and easily fixed. (We're not old).

Great place. Light filled atrium, plants hanging from the ceiling. Cosmopolitan and cool. Excellent food. Not enough wine in the wine by the glass. Service was ok, but I'm sure it will improve when they settle in.

We shared the honey roasted duck which was fabulous albeit the confit duck legs were too dry. Beans and Delphine perfect.
Liquid cheesecake for dessert (shared) was divine.
Miri - fantastic and unpretentious... made it a really lovely night.
Service was impeccable!!!
Lovely selection of wines although it leans a little too far to the European side and it wouldn’t hurt to include a few more Australian options.

Fantastic dining experience. Zucchini flowers were fantastic
Green beans & mixed leaf salad were both great sides to our FANTASTIC 1/2 chicken that we shared. Really moist & delightful chicken.

Only thing we would have changed would have been our table. Would have been a cherry on top to be seated in the entrance to the right with a view of the open plan kitchen! Will definetely recommend to all of our friends

The service was good, staff attentive and friendly. We didn’t feel that the food was in any way deserving of all the high ratings as it was just average to passable but nothing special at all.

After a shaky start, being shown to tables that were not near what we had requested when booking, the night improved. The maitre'd was a pleasure to deal with as he anticipated our wishes. The food was excellent except for the Barramundi dish (fish just turned to mush). Would be good to offer a slightly cheaper wine option by the glass. Overall a 'nice night out'!

This was our 4th visit to Omnia but our first to the Capitol site.
It was underwhelming.
Our booking was at 6.45pm and we felt very fast tracked with food arriving very quickly.
The waiter spilled melted butter from the flounder across the table and my lamb was almost raw.
Having complained about this the situation was corrected very well.

Enjoyed the pop up much better

Omnia is one of my favourite restaurants in Melbourne and where I go for special occasions and where I take all my out of town guests that I want to impress or spoil. The food and cocktails are always delicious and interesting; wonderfully complemented by excellent, friendly service and a beautiful, modern decor.

Nice ambience and friendly staff. My chosen meal was meatballs and it was delicious, although it was literally just meatballs in sauce. Nothing else. No carbs. I had to order a side (salad) to make it a complete meal. And ordered more bread to flesh it out. My wife ordered quail and it was a complete meal, and apparently very good.

Cannot recommend Omnia highly enough, This is our second time to Omnia and it just as good as opening night, the food, service and choice of wines are excellent and i look forward to our next visit. A special thanks to Kevin for his knowledge of the food/wines and friendly conversation meant for a great night for myself and my family. Chris
