    To think these are students running a fine dining restaurant. The attention to the customer is brilliant. You don't have to ask for anything. The person servicing us bought water to the table and topped it up without having to be asked. The students are very customer focused and attentive without hovering. The food was beautifully presented. The food is exactly like what you see on many cooking shows. Beautifully silky smooth potato. Adequate sauce and vegetable component. Seasoned to perfection. The person serving us appeared a bit nervous and was very quiet however, her attention to detail and the attention she gave us was outstanding.

    Being a training restaurant one expects there to be a few issues but nothing really comes to mind. The service was quiet, attentive and unintrusive and the food generally nicely cooked. Servings are on the large side and value excellent.

    Once inside St George's, you wouldn't realise it was part of a training facility - the food, service and value for money are all outstanding. Highly recommended.

    I went to the annual Apprentice Dinner, my first time at the restaurant. The food, wine and service were both outstanding and I can't say I noticed any particular difference from a "normal" restaurant.

    I have been 4 x times for High Tea, however, this time was a little disappointing. One hour to receive the food stands on the table, with the sweet component missing (this came later) so the wow factor was not there. Also, there was 1 x stand to 3 x people, so the amount of food was not as much as previously provided. I have been to St Georges many times, and I always make allowance for the student component of the experience, but, this time it was certainly not the same as previous. I hope my comments will assist with improving your very special venue.

    Keep in mind this is a student run restaurant and you may, depending on who is serving, get sub par service or food. Generally it was good while we were there. One waitress was decidedly terrible and unable to help with almost any request without help. The other was good without being outstanding. Restaurant was empty yet it was hard to get their attention for service. Food quality and presentation were overall reasonable with high quality intent but some minor, noticeable flaws in execution. Atmosphere is lovely and menu selection is wonderful if you're happy with classics and not looking for innovation. I'd suggest only going if you have the patience to be part of these young people's learning. In return you get generally good, classic food at a very affordable price.

    It is great to see the young generation trained for their careers in hospitality and cooking fine foods. We always recommend the restaurant to friends and families. We have been there for birthdays or just a great meal. It's valued for money and help the students for their training. We don't mind their mistakes and embarrassments, it's all part of the study. The teachers are very helpful and patient with their trainings, and professionally pass their knowledges.

    My experience at St George’s was a bit of a interesting one. Let’s start with the service. although this is training restaurant the service of the stuff was wonderful and friendly. Although sometimes I spotted some of the waiters laughing and being unprofessional but other then that I don’t see Andy thing wrong with the service that was provided. Next the food. Me and my partner both had 3 courses. One thing I can definitely say about the food is that it was absolutely delicious and very tasty. I would highly recommend the beef as it so delicious and cooked so perfectly to your liking. Now on to the atmosphere of the restaurant. I gotta admit for a restaurant that opened 10 to 15 years ago the atmosphere has not changed and is still beautiful and welcoming. Over all for the price of $30 to $35 this is a absolute fine establishment to come and have dinner at. I would highly recommend this restaurant and of course I would highly recommend there delicious food.

    Always affordable. Usually tasty. What makes the place so special though is the staff in training. They are always pleasant and really try hard to please (the maître d at St Georges is also reliable with great service and a cheeky smile and good laugh).

    I have been to St Georges Restaurant many times over the past few years for both the lunch and dinner menu. This time I gathered a group of friends (14) and went to their outstanding High Tea Lunch. This was one of the best High Tea's I have ever attended. The food was fabulous to say the least, and there was plenty to share. The training staff are a little hesitant and nervous, but they do a great job as they learn their trade. I will be attending the next High Tea with my brother and 86 year old mother. I am sure she will also enjoy the experience. Keep up the good work!!

    St Georges has become our go-to restaurant. It is quite close to our home in Bundoora. We have celebrated numerous birthdays, family gatherings & even the odd date night. We enjoy speaking with both the staff & students & we have tried various cocktails (& lately mocktails ) It is very good value for the money, there is a great range of food on offer & it is never a late night What's not to like?
