    Incredible food made to perfection. The menu was vast with dishes ranging from under $20 to $350+ with a great selection. We were there for a special occasion so ordered the 1.6kg wagyu and the lobster plus entrees. Everything was perfect. Staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was fresh and delicious and came out with perfect timing between entire mains and desserts. Our only very small issue was that the room we were dining in was quite hot and stuffy. I’m sure staff would have happily moved us if we had asked so that’s on us. Ventilation seemed a little low but otherwise it was a fantastic experience. Possibly the best baby octopus and Kingfish in Melbourne. Thanks for having us!

    The Atlantic is a must for us when in Melbourne. For our 40th Wedding Anniversary we had to dine here because we love good oysters and steak; and we can definitely do that at The Atlantic. The food and service was great.

    Unfortunately at 7.45pm loud thumping music started from their function room downstairs and we couldn’t hear ourselves across the table. It’s meant to be a restaurant and not a night club. Would not go back for dinner

    Food and service was good but our booking was at 2.30pm and they spent their time pressuring us to order before the "kitchen closed". I appreciate they need to prepare for dinner service but then it would be better to not accept a booking at 2.30pm rather than the staff reminding you to hurry up and order every time they came to the table. Felt pressured to get in and out so overall the lunch was not as relaxed as we had hoped for a christmas party. Food was great but they missed the mark with service.

    Had high expectations but was disappointed. Drinks lady was great and knowledgeable. Was happy to pay high prices but food serves were small in comparison. Table service was poor with the waitress having little knowledge of what was on the menu or trying to accommodate for some health requests. Music was loud and style of venue made it hard to have a conversation. Expected more.

    Well what can I say. Absolutely dumbfounded as this is the second time we have had such a poor experience. Our first ever time at the Atlantic we were basically ignored all night whilst the wait staff were only concentrating on a few select tables. The Manager however on learning of our experience invited us back to experience the true Atlantic. The second time was amazing. Our 3rd visit was also amazing. Well last night after being seated for our 8.15 booking we were offered water and given the drinks menu. 30 minutes went buy with us watching others that arrived after us ordering drinks, receiving there drinks and food menus. We could not even catch the eye of one of the wait staff. We gave up and left. On the way out the lovely lady who seated us gave us a lovely thank you and goodnight. She did sound genuinely upset when my wife told her of the lack of service. She did say please come back in and I’ll fix it. 9pm on a Sunday night. So much for our belated anniversary dinner. $25 to park the car only to have a cheese and onion toasty at home. I’m am so disappointed as when you have a good experience at the Atlantic it’s amazing. When you have a bad experience it ruins your whole night. I don’t think I will be back.
