Service was poor, continually reaching over diners to collect plates, seat plates and drinks!! Poor etiquette. Made aware when booking that 2 people Gluten free. When main meal came out there was breadcrumbs on tomatoes. Bad. Then didn’t even tell that they were going to replace the tomatoes until new ones arrived. Extremely bad for a coeliac. No communication. We recommended this place to friends so this was extremely embarrassing. Cannot believe how poor the service was when the food amazing

Sharing as recommended by staff wouln’t have worked with mains we selected, the Rabbit gnocchi being way too small & nothing special flavour wise. The duck fat chips way too salty.

Overrated dishes, $35 for a small portion of lamb or brisket isn't good value.

We chose the Feed Me option for five people. Food was served promptly by friendly and well informed staff. Flavours were delicious with diverse and interesting choice of ingredients. We left feeling satisfied having thoroughly enjoyed a dining experience that was excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

Very nice feed me menu. Service was very slow - waiter didn’t come to our table until about 20 minutes after being seated. Glasses stood empty for a long time before being re poured throughout the evening.
Great wine list. Ambience a little deadened by very large seating area making it feel a little like a bistro rather than upmarket gastronomic genre.

Had the displeasure of Dining here for Xmas Day lunch. At $110/head for food alone, the food offering was appalling. Every dish came out like warm to cold (ironically the warmest dish was the seafood platter!). Service was rushed initially and then barely there as lunch service came to a close - our salad course sat in front of us for the better part of 20 mins. Table remained uncleared with remains of the cheap Xmas crackers (the one lacklustre nod to Xmas Day lunch) throughout the entire meal

We had the”feed me” option so the menu is chosen by the chef. We had three courses plus dessert. The food was delicious, well-presented, and the servings were generous. Service was fantastic. Friendly and efficient. Best meal we’ve had since we dined at Nobu 10 years ago. It was that good!

Unfortunately this was not a special experience as the service was terrible. The food was nice but as we chose the chefs choice menu and the waitress did not know what she serving, the courses were a mystery.
The service was extremely slow to the point we left before getting desert - we had already been there for over 2 hours and still waiting.

Had dinner twice at PSP this week. Delightful setting overlooking the mountains, enjoyed our drinks in front of the fire, then at table. Loved the napkins, crockery, volume was perfect, attentive but unobtrusive service from nice and knowledgeable young things. Food both nights was utterly delicious and we tried pretty much everything. Staff easily took on my request for 'scallops on the side' because I'm allergic. We also appreciated the carafe option and we explored a few more wines that way.

We chose the 'feed me' option for dinner and found the choices provided to us enticing and diverse.
Classed as 'bistro dining', this meal was above and beyond any other bistro experience I have had before.

Friendly staff, knowledgeable staff, unpretentious surroundings and reasonable prices. Good selection of wine.

The "feed me" option was a degustation meal and was nothing like the European versions we have enjoyed while travelling. Each serve was huge. Far too much food for the number of courses served.

The food here is exceptional. Every mouthful was nothing short of perfect. And we were in the casual restaurant! The service was very good and the food, though not cheap, was worth every cent. This was very talented cooking with superb ingredients. A very memorable meal. I love the idea of the sharing platters, which were main sized meals divided into sections for easy sharing with someone else. The bar has been set high for every other restaurant in the future.

A bit disappointed. Menu was good but for a simple lunch...restrictive & expensive. Also we felt the choices were difficult. To get a good balanced meal out of it (impossible for one person), we had to order a number of dishes. This made it an expensive lunch and even then we felt a bit let down (pork belly was not ideal) leaving a number of vegetable dishes as the main lunch. Not really what we expected. Overall, we can't say we would return to have this experience again unless the menu changed

We were really looking forward to lunch & we were not disappointed! After enjoying a morning hike on the Piccaninny Track, we were seated at the table in front of the fire, with a perfect view of Mt Sturgeon - clear skies, perfect view. What a setting! We were attentively looked after by our waiter, who soon delivered a wonderful selection of dishes for us to enjoy - lamb, pumpkin, brussel sprouts & chips. We took our time, savouring each mouthful, including the Shiraz. Memorable indeed! TY :)X

I took my partner for a lunch at Parker Street Project over the weekend. Because we dined on a Monday we were the last ones to dine at lunch time. The restaurant was quiet, we got seated next to the window with a view of the garden. We chose the feed me menu and received 7 dishes to share plus a dessert. The food was lovely and although some of the plates were small portions we were full by the end! Very happy with our dining experience.

We chose seven main course dishes to share amongst five of us and they were all good.
We had a very good local Shiraz.
Unfortunately that is the end of the compliments. The service was very poor: long waits, wrong dishes brought to our table and a waiter who could not inform us about the menu.
The noise level was very high.
