Red Spice Road Ratings and Reviews
We loved our experience!! The only thing we would say which is by no means a bad thing- we were too full!!!
It was a great assortment of food for the banquet but maybe the dessert could be smaller as that tipped us over the edge!!
But it was all wonderful and delicious!!
the food was great however the service was extremely disappointing.
- Wasnt served for a long time
- Mains came out before started had to send back
- Starters came with one person missing, had to eat by themselves
- table not cleared, plates pushed around to fit mains.
- no service to ask if we wanted more drinks
- empty jugs left on the table until we asked for them to be moved
Amazing food, the explosion of flavours in each dish was amazing. We loved every dish we ordered. Service not so crash hot but was OK.
Our table was right at front door so away from rest of restaurant (hence why service was average as I think this table probably gets forgotten a lot) so next time I'd ask to be in the restaurant.
Exceptional tasting and presentation of food. Service very poor and seating offered to us was poor. A romantic dining experience is not to be placed on a large semi circular table sharing with 6-8 others. We requested a change of seating and that was done swiftly. Attention to service was very poor also. Ambience and vibe was good.
Booked Mother's Day lunch. Table sitting for 1:45pm was not ready for most bookings...was seated at 2:15, people everywhere. Staff avoided eye contact with guests, it was unprofessional. Placed on the a table of six even though booked for eight. Once seated table service was excellent and food outstanding. On this day a kids menu was offered but no dessert so maybe next time they should offer vanilla ice cream as children don't eat plum cake and aniseed ice cream and want dessert as well.
We went to Red Spice Road based on friends recommendations of how amazing it was, this was not the case when we dined there last night. The food and service was extremely disappointing. We had the pork belly and the barramundi and they were both dry and had hardly any flavour.
We didn't even finish our meals and nobody asked us how our meal was throughout the meal or whilst paying for it. This was a special treat for us and we left feeling really unsatisfied for the amount of money we paid.
Be sure to try the entrees and share.
Brilliant mix of dining areas caters for big to small groups, intimate to partysize .
Put this on the special must try list !
From Darwin I like to try new restaurants but I had to go back with my mates from interstate to share this menu we loved it
Food was super relish, especially the king fish salad. We were seated at one of the long cut bed share tables and had a great night eating and talking with our fellow diners.
The staff were a little slower than normal and drinks took longer than food which we had to remind them a few times but that was not a normal experience here.
Overall great food and experience
Food was excellent, the pork belly & lamb shoulder were amazing! The only reason I gave it 9/10 was the beef cheek was a little overbooked & dry though the sauce was delicious.
Waitress was really friendly & attentive, glasses were never empty.
I'm not a fan of communal tables but seats were spaced well enough apart.
Amazing food here, loved everything we ordered. So much flavour and interesting things to choose from. Portions were generous and definitely plenty to share in a group of 4, very good value for the price. Service was attentive and helpful, can't fault anything, can't wait to go back.
Back to its very best!
Oh RSR, how I've missed you! Our go-to spot to show friends and family visiting Melbourne, what our cuisine is all about. We decided to be brave and not order our favourites on this occasion (i.e. pork belly and the lamb ribs), and in fact, ordered the lamb shoulder and the barramundi.
Silly silly us.
Now we have two more favourites to add to the list and are even more spoilt for choice. Keep making us proud, guys!
I made a reservation and called to confirm details leading up to the night three times. All times I called my reservation was confirmed. When I arrived with my group of seven I was told they couldn't find my reservation. A little frustrating but we were seated in the courtyard and we were very happy with the table.
Fantastic food and one of the best restaurants in Melbourne. Need to work on your reservation system though. Was very disappointed by it!
We had the set menu for an early dinner.
Although I'd eaten here before it was disappointing this time.
The pork belly was dry (but tasty with the sauce), the beef rib was pretty awful and the salad was bland.
The dinner was helped by some other good dishes but overall the quality wasn't up to a high standard.
