This is the first time I went to Supernormal after Covid started, and due to social distancing our table was in the smaller function room downstairs. That said I'm pretty sure there were more people than 1 per 4 Sqm, but the tables were spaced apart wider than usual. The food and service as always is the best. This is one of my favourite restaurants, and I can't wait to go back again. We had the lobster rolls, prawn and chicken dumplings, Szechuan noodle salad and the lamb. Yum!!

Great food all their classics on their current menu Well priced & lovely service ! We were seated downstairs which lacks ambience compared to upstairs but we appreciated that their was no time limit with current restrictions. Strong health safety focus with hi tech temp testing.
Consistently good experience

One of first nights with a girlfriend out post-Iso restrictions easing. Did not disappoint. Had the feed me menu, all delicious, plenty of food (ok, a little too much, but too good not to eat. Friendly service, wasn't made to feel rushed and our 2 hour sitting was able to extend 10-15 mins, which was plenty. Kinda unusual having so much 'space' in a big restaurant, but made for a relaxing dining night. Thanks to the team, from food prep to service - lovely night.

Soooo happy Supernormal is back. Delicious as always, set menu due to covid includes the faves except the legendary lobster roll but we were able to add it on, which meant we ate too too much.... but it was fabulous. Service, faultless. Love it.

most the dishes are pretty average, will not make you want to go back for them
There are better choices around the area.

The main course - Roast flounder would like to have a sauce with richer flavours.

The dessert Peanut butter parfait is overly sweet. I think the sauce killed it, way too sweet. Maybe something fruity with some acidity can balance it out.

Very glad to be back at this great Melbourne institution! The set menu was just right - quality and quantity- especially the dumplings, slow cooked lamb and duck. Thank you for also letting us move to the bar for another drink after our meal!

Excellent food and service. The banquet was excellent value and the right amount of food. The wine was exceptional however a choice of one white and one red at a more reasonable price may sway the decision to return more frequently. However we completely understand the importance of operating at a profit with the limited seating capacity. Overall a lovely evening

We had the set menu due to Covid, and rolled out of the restaurant as we were so full at the end. Food was amazing! Had the vegetarian and Lamb set menus, both were outstanding.

It was a delicious meal, lots of fabulous choices and excellent wine. Loved being able to go back to restaurants again and this is a fav of our families.

Actually really enjoyed the space between tables, felt like a private dining room experience and could hear each other perfectly.

The service was quick for the most part and we thoroughly enjoyed going back to Supernormal.

Really love this restaurant, highly recommend it.

Happy and relieved to finally be able to re-visit Supernormal after the partial easing of dining restrictions. Pleased to report the high quality of service and food continues with the only downside being the absence of some familiar floor staff. Looking forward to the return of the usual hustle and bustle of a busy and full Supernormal.

The $75 7-course degustation was worth it! The lobster roll is always a winner but everything else didn’t disappoint. The service is top-notched too. Supernormal will always have a special place in my heart.

The food and service are always excellent and if you're on the way to the theatre the staff always make sure you're out the door on time. The only very slight fly in the ointment is a turbo powered air con system which means you'll need to take your cardi.
