Service and venue are great.
Food is really tastey but not good value for money.
For example scallop entre for $27.00 had only 3 scallops.
Desert advertised as 'share' for $27.00 was a single bowl of delicious pudding, but not enough for two.
We did have a nice lunch and Hannah was an excellent waiter.

Food is very good but expensive for what it is. The background musak is annoying, not what I would expect in that class of restaurant. Service was a bit over attentive but friendly. Overall we would return but I think the menu needs to change more often and to have a better range of meals.

Not quite as spectacular as we remember from past visits. Maybe the seasonal menu didn't appeal quite as much as usual but the wow factor from the food was definitely lacking compared to past experience. Maybe the chef has changed? and not everyone is passionate about Sirromet wines so moderating the price a little for non-Sirromet offerings would encourage greater sales. We would have had some non Sirromet wine but the price was double that of other quality restaurants forcing us to think twice. But staff are great and ambience second to none

Enjoyed a lovely lunch. Our server (Marie) was extremely good, and very knowledgeable about the menu and gave some good suggestions. We are looking forward to our daughter's wedding at Sirromet at the end of the year, and seeing the quality of the food and service, we are really looking forward to the event even more.

Have been to this restaurant for breakfast and dinner quite a few times over the years and have really enjoyed the food. This time we were a party of four and all mains were disappointing. I had the veal dish and the jus was so over salted it made the dish hard to enjoy. My husband and another had the crab linguine that had such an overpowering tomato base that the crab was lost in it.

Had the Moretan bay bug linguine, was a very generous serving. A simple dish that was well balanced.
My wife had the special, Kobe striploin marbling 9+. Kobe, enough said.

Lovely dinner. Did five course valentines special. An extra meat dish would have balanced the meal. 2 desserts were lovely, but ordered more!!!

The Thai basil / lychee sorbet - tooooo overpowering, even if mixed with soufflé

I would recommend Lurleens for the food. But I would suggest being seated away from a large group. the interior is not good for diflecting noise. We could hardly hear each other because of the group we were sitting beside. Otherwise, a very good experience.

The food was amazing but extremely expensive. The service was very basic for such an expensive restaurant, the waitress spilt our wine & water a number of times. For $$ they charge I would have expected a lot better service. Would not go again as although the food was great it did not warrant the price tag

I went at 630pm for dinner. I ordered mains and desserts which was filling enough. The staff were pleasant and provide great specifics about dishes. Waiting was minimal for a fine dining restaurant however we did order before the main rush. I would definitely go back and recommend to friends.

As long standing patrons of Lurleens we were so disappointed with our most recent visit. Two meals were substandard and we were not offered any compensation. The waiter was over attentive but seemed underwhelmed with our complaints.

A very good experience. We took friends from London who have dined across the world and they were very impressed with the food and the service. Waiters were very friendly and attentive, the food was excellent and the prices not outrageous. We had entrees and mains and I liked that the servings were not huge.

We have just returned home from having had lunch in Restaurant Lurleens.
To say that we are bitterly disappointed is an understatement. The reason
for the luncheon was as a Christmas present to friends. We (four of us)
were put at a table in the far righthand corner outside the kitchen door of the
restaurant in a small alcove with a table occupied by 11 adults and two
small children. There was one other table in the alcove occupied by two
people who did not stay very long and were clearly disgruntled when they
departed.
The party at the large table was noisy - the children were not well controlled
creating an ambiance which one could expect in a MacDonalds. Needless
to say, our whole lunch experience was totally spoiled. It is surprising to us
that the manager was not aware of what was going on - our poor waiter was
clearly stressed - but in no way did he allow that to diminish his service,
which was, at all times, polite and the food and wine were fine. We feel
that, in what is supposed to be a “fine dining” restaurant there should have
been some consideration given to ensuring that the experience was pleasant
for everyone. We shall not be returning - and certainly shall not be
recommending your restaurant to anyone. Especially after the comment,
made aside, by the lady who took my payment, to her colleague “Oh well,
some you win, some you lose”.

Really good service and setting. Wonderful ambience and dining experience . Wine menu was amazing, especially having options for different wines for different meals. My only gripe is that the value for food size portion is low as the meals are really nice just small for the price you pay. Defiantly come here to impress someone or if you have money to burn. Overall great experience
