Beautiful restaurant with great service and even greater views! The food is always good and the service is great.
Great place with amazing food and view of the marina and city.
We had a very special birthday dinner here on a Saturday night. The location, decor, food and seevice were all first class. Worth the price for an important occasion.
We have been going to what was the Anchorage and now Pier farm for years. Its always been expensive however since it has changed hands and this visit especially, the value just isn't there. With entrees up near $30 and mains close to $50, I expect great service to complement the experience.
On Saturday night, we had to ask for the wine list again when our main meals were served... we then had to spend time trying to get a waiters attention to order that wine to have with our main meals.... ! When the wine came, the old glasses and empty wine bottle from our previous course were left on the table, we weren't asked if we wanted more water - our bread and butter plates werte left etc etc etc. Needless to say, the table was very crowded! When we finished eating, we sat with dirty dishes on the table for over 20 minutes. Dessert was offered, but no tea or coffee. Again, dessert came out and we still had old wines bottles and glasses on the table!
Our bill for 3 people was well over $400 - did i feel that i had received the service and attention for a $400 meal? Simply, no. Was the food memorable at $50 a plate? Again, no.
Sory Pier farm - there are too many good restaurants in Melbourne to put up with mediocrity.
Possibly the most scenic restaurant in Melbourne, absolutely delightful experience. The food was delicious, and a glass of Veuve to start the meal was superb (without having to buy a whole bottle!). Very friendly staff, made to feel comfortable and relaxed, with a splash of elegance - no paper napkins here! My only suggestion for improvement is for the staff to be more attentive for a glass refill during the meal - a top class waiter should have eyes always looking around for that that empty glass. Overall though, this restaurant is a "must" on your bucket list!
Nice view, but that is all we could say positively about this place. Service very unprofessional. Food probably on a par with average pub. Definitely not fine dining.
Recently we had dinner here on our anniversary. Lovely spot near the water & great ambience too. Food was nice but nothing to write home about! Found it pricey too.
Enjoyed a late lunch recently with my husband. Great location by marina, excellent food, good wine, friendly service and reasonably priced. Purchased a voucher as a gift for my son and his wife so they too can enjoy the experience.
The Venue is beautiful and staff were excellent but unfortunately the food let your restaurant down it wasn't worth the money I paid . My partner and I had pasta which was undercooked and for a main course I was served up 9 small ravioli for a main course for $33 . My friend had the duck which was dry . The chef must of had a bad day
Beautiful view of the bay, friendly service tasty food
I was just too expensive for what you got.
The food is good but not for the price you paid.
The atmosphere and setting of this restaurant has always been great (formerly The Anchorage Restaurant) and the new paint work has certainly brightened up the place. The food has always been exceptional, however I must admit that the portions are minimal. During my recent visit I ordered Lamb Shoulder and was expecting more than just a 4" x 2" piece of lamb, half of which was fat which I could not eat. I didn't say anything at the time because i was with a group and didn't want to make a fuss, but for the price of the plate - I think the chef should look at the piece of meat before serving it. I'm not saying the food was not tasty, because it was, but the portion size is just ridiculous!
Great views. Food was a little disappointing for the price.
Wonderful service, excellent steak and spectacular views
We had a family dinner with eight persons all with varying orders for food and wine. The staff were very patient and attentive and the food was excellent.
The menu was varied and the quality of the food and it's presentation were both very good. We were a group if 6 and all were happy with the meals and service
We have been to this place under its old name several times and now twice under the new name, last time was just after the name change. It has always been quite expensive but was ok because the food was good value with ample servings. Sadly things are not the same although the wine list is still quite good but also a little above the good restaurant price. We were a little concerned when we walked in as it is usually at least half full for lunch any day of the week, but this was close to Christmas and there were only people at 2 tables including us. The last straw was on paying the bill I was charged a surcharge for using a credit card and the waiter blamed the bank, but it was the restaurant making me pay their banking costs nothing to do with the bank - Another regular eatery never to be visited again despite the excellent location.
Been there twice in 14 days first experience on a weekend was very good second experience on a weeknight was terrible. The difference was the food quality from the first to the second visit clearly must have been a chef roster change. I wont be back given the variance in standard.
There were five in our party, we all ordered seafood and everyone said their meals were excellent. The service was good, the seating allowed great views across the water, the wine list easy on the palate and wallet. Negative was the cutlery; very heavy handles took a little getting used to, but hardly a gripe, OK? Great value for money! Will go back, for sure.
Excellent service, great view and lovely interior. Good menu selection, lovely food. Beautiful desserts.
Back ground music is required. Lovely service and food.
Restaurant has moved from earlier emphasis on seafood but they have struck a balance of very good offerings across the menu. All at the table were pleased. Prices higher than some but good value. Will return.
Had been here prior to change of ownership and felt it was a little tired. Am
Happy to say that Saturday night was great. Food, service and venue were great.
Horrible experience, it was our Anniversary and we were forgotten by the waitress.
Never had my water refilled or offered for another wine. When my $36 plate of pasta arrived it was raw!!! I ate the seafood because I was hungry and I didn’t want to eat on my own if I returned it.
When I spoke with the manager he admitted that it was raw as he tried it and mentioned that he will chat with the chef. Apparently on the site it mentioned that the chef was bought in as he is the best... really!!! We were not charged for the pasta. We decided to leave early and continued to celebrate elsewhere where we were made feel welcomed.
Good food. Good service. Relaxing inviroment. Quite expensive however a very enjoyable experience
We had a lovely night by the sea enjoyed a delicious 3 course meal with good service
All good except for a surcharge on a Visa Card which must be a first in my experince.
We were a table of six and loved the atmosphere and food, good menu and great service
Not what is was very disappointing over priced poorly executed food
Seared tuna raw one side over cooked the other and wafer thin
Guests are clearly voting with their food as there was only 7 or 8 tables on a Friday night was alway full on a weekend
The food was poorly served we got a piece of meat without anything else on the plate the meat was a cheap cut with grizzly and fatty parts then you had to order veggies or salad on the side menu was poor overall to expensive un appetising paid $500 and left disappointed and dissatisfied
For the price, the service was inattentive and unknowledgeable. The food was good but expensive and not outstanding as the price would imply.
Pier Farm was an amazing experience. We had lunch and the atmosphere was relaxed. The food was exceptional, fresh seafood, decent portions and the service impeccable. It’s an upper end restaurant price wise but the portions suit the price. Extensive wine list and wonderful French champagne to choose from.
Highly recommend a visit.
Used to enjoy eating here on "special occasions", although a little steep in price for the food. Was disappointed this time when GF toast was delivered to the table, burnt. Also main meal arrived before drinks which had to be reminded about, and they weren't that busy.
The old menu used to have GF annotated to each suitable dish, but not any more.
Absolutely delicious pasta! Fresh ingredients, full of flavor. The venue had a wonderful mood and the staff were outstanding! Will be back soon!
This is a beautiful restaurant to share a special occasion at. Everything was great. We sat and relaxed together having a lovely conversation across many hours. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will be back for sure.
Lovely Father’s Day lunch. Had the fillet of the Day,barramundi, and Seafood linguini - both were delicious. Attentive staff and helpful with our 7 month old in pram.
Thank you for a wonderful experience. Reminded us of holidays dining in Noosa.
Great produce well prepared. Excellent wine list and great ambience with excellent views across the water to the CBD. It is certainly an improvement over the previous "Anchorage".
Really enjoyed our evening at Pier Farm. Will definitely be going there again.
I love the feel of the restaurant and the service. The food menu was great prices as well as their beverage menu. We loved the kingfish carpaccio (must try) though the fillet fish of the day ( Snapper) was a little too dry for us however the sauce, veg and clams were great! I’ve also been here before and tried their special Mahi Mahi and that was delicious! And also tried their steak which was devine.
Service was friendly, warm and knowledgeable. Stunning city views.
