-Have been a number of times for yum cha which was fairly good. Dinner unfortunately just didn't hit the spot.

-Overpriced dinner. Yum cha lunch ok.

-Chicken was cold (it didn't say it was a cold dish on the menu) which i now assume the restaurant is cooking, then reheating straight out of the fridge.

When I walked in, ... wow!
Beautiful place, service was great.
But unfortunately the food was WAY overpriced for what it was.
The food was average and the prices doubled.
Left me feeling disappointed I lost that money.
$181.00 for me and my 7year old.😬

While the restaurant is pricey, the Lobster was served with meat taken out of the shell and the service and scenery was fantastic!

It was a great night right from the start with a warm welcome, excellent seating and friendly waiter staff. My wife has Celiac and the waiter arranged a gluten free banquet meal modification for her...nothing was too much trouble. First class service and great food.

The menu for the buffet was plentiful and loved how some minor changes could be made but for $198 pp was a bit over the top...my beef was chewy but my partner was beautiful...the first bit of lobster looked more like a crab stick...overall nice but no cigar as they say

Food and service was great, the only downside was the wheelchair ramp required to enter the dining area, the ramp was very steep and dangerous. I'd doubt it would be compliant with safety regulations.

The food was great, and the experience was good, but two things let it down. Paying $13.50 for a bottle of still water is ridiculous, and when everything is so expensive, having to pay a credit card fee on top of the price is insane. At that price point I believe all fees should be included.

On line booking led to a disappointing corner table at the back of the restaurant, ( there were tables with a water view overlooking the Yarra at the front of the restaurant ) which spoilt a special occasion. Service was very slow and fell away as the night progressed, consequently we had to rush a dessert order as we were told the kitchen was closing.

Lovely venue, with great views but we had a pretty terrible table next to the door to the kitchen.
The food and service lacked finesse.

A bit pricey but you get what you pay for. Yum.

Quality of Food and Service, great, very genuine and sincere attention from reception to all staff.
Unfortunately, by ordering a Martini not on their drink list, resulted in an exorbitant increase that was most disappointing.
Need to remember to ask how they can increase the price by more than 60% for the same drink with the only change being in the Gin !!!

(1). Environment was good.
(2). Service was ok, can be better. We were having Chinese tea. No one topped it up when it was empty. We had to call the waitress few times. Not good considering they were charging us $5.00 per head.
(3). Food largely fine. We ordered 3 mains and 3 entrees among 3 of us. Except one scallop main disk, rest was good.
(4). Not really value for money. Compare to other restaurants in Crown complex and Southbank, certainly Silks was over price with small dish size
