Top shelf team, from booking through to saying good-bye. All right on the money.
We were very late getting to our booking, but did not present any of the team with an issue. They moved and changed all parts to fit with us.
Brilliant wine list, with a clearly engaged and assionate Somm. Made the lunch a real discovery with a couple of stunners in amongst it.
All that before you have to even consider the food, its clearly a winner restaurant. Busy, but not deafening loud, it had all of the boxes ticked for us.
Such a great lunch. My server was awesome, the food was amazing and I've never had bar top dining like this!
Great food and ambience. Dined with overseas guests who loved the whole Asian Fusion.
This restaurant has a real buzz: going from nearly empty at 1230 to full by 1pm. We had a banquet menu which was sensational: each mouthful a surprise on the palate not to mention visually interesting. Despite the fine food, the atmosphere is relaxed. Wait staff were attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The wine was recommended and fabulous. My only downside was that I thought it was a touch pricey: particularly the water and wine. Having said that, I will be going back and so will my friend who’s determined to bring her husband so he can also experience a feast for the senses.
First time dining, won't be the last. Innovative food, beautifully prepared and presented, staff who are knowledgeable, great atmosphere - buzzy but unhurried.
Couldn’t fault our lunch at Supernormal.
Wait staff were attentive but not in our face.
Food was delicious. We had steak tartare, prawns, dumplings, lobster rolls, fresh greens, fish and ginger dessert and toffee dessert. A few beers to begin and a soft red.
It was a Friday lunch and we weren’t rushed.
Food was a letdown compared to our visit 6 months ago. Flavours weren't there in our favourite dishes. Service was impeccable. Won't return.
We were in Melbourne for a three day break from work in Sydney. I love Cumulus Inc and a chance to fit Supernormal into our schedule was grabbed. We loved all the food! The selection was varied and large, with plenty of healthy and vegetarian options. The vegetable dumplings were oh so plump with beautiful flavour and the steamed greens oozed freshness. Just yummy!
All the wait staff were helpful and friendly.
I invite friends to Supernormal for their birthdays, and it never fails to impress. When the hostess found out it was my friend's birthday, she brought out a special treat with a candle on it. It made her day! The lobster rolls are amazing, and we have tried nearly everything else on the menu - all excellent!
Interesting and delicious food - perfect choice for a long over-due catch up over a long Sunday lunch.
My family really enjoyed all the time and we visited the place very often. The staffs are really nice and food.....always top top top
We flew down from the Sunshine Coast that morning and we just had to come to Supernormal for the second time, this time for lunch. We introduced the restaurant to a couple of friends and we all loved it. The tasty aromatic dishes is simply first class. The staff were also very knowledgeable and proficient. A must for anyone's visit to Melbourne.
To be honest! Whilst the food was good it deffinently didn’t take my breath away. Pretty pricy for what we got. The duck was very disappointing. Generally pretty flat afterwards as I was so excited to go.
Delicious food!!! Ticked of my every growing list of places to eat in Melbourne.
This was my first time at Supernormal and we had the banquet meal for $68 plus an excellent bottle of Soave. This was a great way to sample the dishes and all very presented beautifully. The food was fresh and there was a selection of Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai and Japanese style dishes. The menu starts of with entree size options and then moves to more substantial dishes. The salted caramel dessert was a brilliant way to top of the tasting menu. I felt satisfied but not stuffed full. I would definitely come back - my only criticism is that the place was a bit noisy but not unbearable. I would see this as a lunch place rather than a dinner venue or business meal venue. Not private or quiet enough for business discussions. The service was friendly and efficient. The staff were knowledgeable about the dishes.
The food did not taste fresh to us. It did not feel like it was cooked with effort and the dishes looked messy on the plates. We were one of the first customers there for the day so you would have assumed there was enough time for the dishes. Disappointing. We had heard amazing things about it but the dishes were certainly not up to scratch in our view.
Consistently good with their food, wine and service. Flexible with dishes which is a bonus.
Fantastic food, great flavours and our server was brilliant. Would recommend to anyone!
The staff are just so lovely here! Knowledgeable and attentive, and the food was great, fresh and tasty.
All in all great meal for a reasonable price. I did the banquet deluxe menu, the only thing I would say was wrong and it wasn’t even wrong was that the waygu beef bun was a bit heavy.
Supernormal continues to deliver consistently good food and service. I would highly recommend this high end establishment
Thank you once again Supernormal. The service, food and overall experience continues to be exceptional. Awesome!
Maybe we ordered poorly .. food a little underwhelming from previous occasions. ie Lobster roll ..
Freshly prepared food , and friendly accommodating staff.
Delicious food, great service and very accommodating to dietary needs. Highly recommend.
Awesome restaurant, high quality that is always consistent
Perfect birthday lunch!
Absolutely amazing food, attentive and friendly service.
Will definitely return
When the restuarant was full, was very noisy, a a little difficult to have a conversation
Pretty excited to finally try this restaurant and was pretty disappointed. We chose the $69 pp banquet, very expensive for what you get, the menu is confusing...not really sure any of the dishes matched. Service was terrible, waitress appeared very unhappy to be there. Wouldn't go back for dinner - sorry!
Supernormal is by far the best restaurant in Melbourne. Second time I’ve been back and can’t wait to go back again :)
Taking my fiancé for her first time in Melbourne
Delicious food. Excellent service. It’s not the cheapest meal in town- but that’s not why you go there. It’s still value for money and it’s great. Thanks Supernormal, you never disappoint!
Great restaurant for our first visit to Melbourne - we recommend the lobster rolls
Really good food but service was a little off when we visited. The waitress seemed to forget to put some of our orders through.
A great place to enjoy good quality and tasty food in a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. Staff were engaging and attentive, definitely be back!!!
Food excellent as was table service, although drinks service slow, had to remind staff that we were still waiting on drinks to arrive. 1st world problem!
The food was clean and interesting but nothing I would be rushing back for. The descriptions often seem to outweigh the actual delivery and that can be frustrating. It is great being able to book a table and that is what drew me there as opposed to waiting in line at one of the many others in Flinders Lane offering similar style menus. I would definitely return for a quick and easy bar lunch but for a more leisurely lunch or dinner I am more likely to seek out something with a little more heart and soul.
Great food and space.
Great ambiance, food are superb. Soft shell crab bun is a must.
excellent service from the moment you walked in
every course chosen was delicious
