    I have been to this restaurant a few tomes over the years. My food every time has been really good, however this time my main meal was very poor.I had lobster spaghetti and found the lobster to have an after taste as it was not fresh.I did eat most of the meal because I was hungry I should have mentioned something when I was there but I didn't want to upset the waitress who was really nice.

    We all had Steaks. The Medium Rare was almost overdone and the Medium were well overdone. They were tasteless. Even the lousy piece of Potato gratin was hard and tasteless. We ordered a salad and this also was tasteless and we couldn’t even find a walnut in it. The wait staff were not very professional. She asked how our meals were and we told her bland and tasteless and she gave out a giggle. I said last time we would not go back and friends said to try it again. I recommend do not bother going here. It is NOT worth even half the money.

    Hi Michael, this is super disappointing to read. We are so sorry that we didn't tick the boxes for you on Saturday evening. My team will be very disappointed but thank you for taking the time to provide some feedback which we will address with our Chef and Julie, who looked after you. We do hope to see you again in the future. Lisa

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our first time T Ripponlea restaurant. The food was Devine. Service impeccable and friendly and helpful. Loved the ambiance. Definitely be back. I will definitely ask the best way to taste the food on offer in smaller size. We ordered a few dishes but wasn’t expecting them to be so big. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

    Nice Pasta & wine deal for $40 on a weeknight. We were out for a child celebration for the first time at Ripponlea Food & Wine. Unfortunately, our otherwise nice experience was marred by restaurants' lack of understanding and failed processes around food allergies. Lack of clear allergies on menu items. Even when informed about nut allergies, kids with anaphylaxis served doughnuts filled with Nutella. Expect much much better in a melb restaurant. Not eaten. No harm done on this occasion, but be vigilant if you have allergies until they get it right. Other than that, good food, friendly service and a fun night out.
