We enjoyed a lovely lunch here with the three of us all happy with our meals. The wine was reasonably priced with no huge mark up and the dessert was yummy - one of us ordered the Affogato and it was so good we ordered a second. The wait staff - Pak and George on this occasion - were fantastic. So professional and friendly that they made us feel special. Oops. Forgot chef. Thank you all.

We had a friend with us who is on the FODMAP diet. Chef and server knew what she could eat and had prepared a number of options 5 stars in my book for being prepared and open to her needs. THANK YOU 🙂

Lovely setting and beautiful looking restaurant. The staff were very attentive and polite. The level of expectation for the food created by the lovely restaurant and great staff unfortunately did not match.
I found the food to be not as refined as expected. I had the Tune Carparcio, which was cut far to thickly and not seasoned at all. I then had the 'special' of baby snapper and again, not as refined as expected. The picture created in my mind by the explanation of the waiter was nothing like what appeared on the plate with large piles of lettuce and a slapped on tomato accompaniment.
Great night views over to Melbourne CBD while enjoying a special ambience and great food.

My friend an I were overcharged $60. This has been refunded to my friends credit card, only after she checked the docket when she arrived home. Her meal of lamb shanks were a bit tough. My snapper was very nice.
Great hospitality in a Beach House ambience, serving lovely food both seafood and otherwise. Great complimentary wine list also.
Wonderful food. Great wine choices. Excellent service.
Want to be kind . Most food ok to good . Nice antipasto, would love more veges on it as well. Great Special dessert. Special mains were best. 1 bad dish spoiled things a bit. Server attentive, background music sophisticated, nice view. Visited on a quiet night so might not be typical.
Great night! The food and wine was excellent and our waiter helped make the evening for us! We will be back!
A gorgeous restaurant with a fabulous view of the Melbourne skyline. The service was exceptional as was the food. I had the special king prawn risotto and it was without doubt the best meal I’ve had in a long time. Awesome!
Only criticism is price. Main meals are overpriced.
Love the place and food was excellent. Good place to enjoy with family and friends
Hi Louise, Thank you for visiting Pier Farm and for the lovely review. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit! We hope to see you again in the future! Many thanks, The Team at Pier Farm
Ambience is an extra point to recommend. Food may need more improvement on flavouring but overall good experience
Once again had a great lunch. Pier Farm has a lovely ambience, a sort of beach house feel. Staff are warm and welcoming, food delicious and a wine list to match. Highly recommended
Restaurant is very impressive when you walk in. Food is average and over priced. Had tortellini dish, they were cold and my husband had seafood pasta, hardly any seafood in dish, calamari were like rubber bands and small portion at main meal price. Very disappointed
Good service and ok quality food. Great location, however it is way overpriced for the quality of food you are getting. We paid $180 for a small portioned two course meal and no alcohol. You are pushing into the territory of some of Melbourne top restaurants at these prices and the food just doesn’t stack up. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant on that basis.
Great location, good service and lovely food
Thought the food was great, we couldn’t fault anything we had. Service was also good, lovely staff. Friendly and attentive. We have been there a few times as The Anchorage and think it lives up to that standard. Would definitely go back and take friends there.
Pier Farm is a beautiful restaurant with great food. However, the Gluten Free offering was quite poor.
Charming restaurant in a scenic location. Nice menu, and wine list. Friendly competent service. Enjoyed our meal there.
Food, service, views amazing
Even though there was a function next door, it did not impact on our experience
Great location and views. Service was good, but food didn’t really deliver value - it tasted quite nice, but not amazing - which for the price was a little disappointing.
Excellent service and ambience, food was great, only the Broccoli was served cold
Beautiful spot on the water, lovely restaurant, good service, good menu, lovely wine
Great food, had the specials, excellent great outlook and service
We revisited as part of the Food and Wine festival and so happy we chose this venue. The two course option with a glass of wine was excellent. Both our entree and mains were delicious, we were quite impressed as we had expected small servings. We will definately be returning.
The staff were great the food was amazing, this place is the best restaurant i have ever been to, the food was perfect and couldn't be better, i highly recommend the Pier Farm!
The disappointment was being seated in a near empty restaurant really close to a table of two whom insisted on talking loudly about very personal subjects on their mobile/s. It really killed the lunch for us.
Should have moved us to the middle of the restaurant. Food was very good, service excellent.
Perfect, friendly and efficient service. Wonderful setting overlooking the water. Delicious food. Highly recommended. Particularly for a first date 😊
The only criticism was the good
Not very good standard
Yes - recommended for the food, service and ambiance - location.
No - not so good for serving size and pricing.
We dine out a lot and I suggest that the food was good quality but was lacking in quantity. Kids fish and chips was $20, sides for mains were way over priced - $11 for a very small bowl of packet chips, $12 for fried sweet potato chips and $12 for a small garden salad. All of the sides were tiny. We also had steaks ($44.50 to $49 each -steak only no sides), fish of the day was a grilled stuffed Whiting for $48. We brought along our own birthday cake and they charged us $25.
Long and short of it, I'd be OK to return for the mains and service, but be prepared to pay top $$$. For us, there are better options in Williamstown. cheers
Expensive with small servings, but the food was tasty, the service was 10/10 and the restaurant is stunning
I have been here numerous times and keep coming back. Absolutely wonderful restaurant!
Second time going there, great food, thoughtful staff. Clear stand out
The food was amazing and the service was impeccable
