    Considering they were understaffed they were excellent. It’s just a sign of the times so if you have a little patience then you’ll enjoy the food and ambience and you will return

    First time here, I unfortunately seemed to be missed at the door. Standing at the sign “wait here”. Others were greeted to a table before I was as they walked past me towards the register. The rest of the experience was good after I was seated. Good food and menu. The wait staff were very helpful. Good prices. Very clean and nice style place.

    Food was lovely, the presentation was a bit lacking. Stemless wine glasses are not my thing and take away from the ambience. We found the interior a little cold. Front door was open and therefore quite draughty. The occasional cigarette smoke wafted in. It was a breezy day tho, but this could’ve been avoided by closing the front door.

    There was rat or mice droppings in the ambient toilet and overall it wasn’t clean. Food all over kitchen floor and it was generally untidy. No one taking charge of front of house so it was chaotic when we arrived. Food was served but no cutlery, no one noticed this so we had to ask for some. We noticed the waitress had to clean said cutlery because no one had been doing the dishes. One of the meals was served cold. Our waiter was lovely, but every staff member there was running around trying to keep up with the service. They weren’t just busy, they were absolutely short staffed with clearly no management. Definitely won’t be returning.

    I made a reservation online and then needed to change the time. The time change was fine but the staff member who took my call couldn’t hear me so hung up on me. The meals were satisfactory but so big there was a lot of wastage. Staff are energetic and looking to correct any mistakes.

    First meal out of lockdown with an interstate guest who had been recommended Sir Duke & from arrival the service was bad. The food was great & I thanked the Chefs. Waiting staff need hospitality training & I rang Ash the Manager who was grateful for the feedback & we will return once Hospitality recovers from C19 lockdowns & staff can be invested in to provide friendly & professional service.

    Staff are lovely but food service was very slow. Taking approximately 1 hour to get our food,. There was no communication from the kitchen as to why it was taking so long. On arrival, the food looked very dry, and unappealing. The gnocchi had a hard cheese top and the chicken parma had a layer of melted now cold cheese. Disappointed to get an extra $5 added to our bill with no explanation. Didn’t help the overall experience ☹️. Sorry will not be back.

    Sat outside which was nice. I think they were under staffed and weren’t expecting to be so busy. Seemed to do lots of outside deliveries. Had to ask a few times for things and brought mains before our shared entree. Food was delicious and great value. Will go back for sure. Had a nice night

    We weren’t told when we booked or when we arrived that there was a 10% surcharge for Sunday. I’m happy to support local businesses that have struggled, but I object to being ”taxed” like this. This is already the most expensive cafe in Moonee Ponds, then they add a surcharge! I will find another local cafe to support

    Was given a dirty knife.. first day after lockdown 5.0 ... not a great start.. ordered the bird burger, dressing was not balanced just straight vinegar taste. Mediterranean grain salad with salmon, dressing was way way off, strangest grain combination salad ive had, salmon was over cooked. Almond milk chai latte wasnt great, straight licorice tasting! Just not a pleasant meal, first time visitors, used to go weekly when we lived in the area and it was Lemon Soul. Wouldnt recommend and not worth the trip.

    We were three and they messed up the order. We ordered 2xcalamari and 1xsalmon. They brought 2xsalmon and 2xcalamari. We sent one salmon back and replaced it with the calamari. Then they charged us for the 2xsalmon and 2xcalamari.
