The hostess and overall service was incredibly positive and lovely! Would come back just for that! The waitstaff looked a little busy at times so there were some delays to order, but their attitudes made up for it. Would recommend - quality seafood and not as stifling as a lot of the touristy restaurants around southbank

Very expensive for the level of service!

The food itself is great if you can get past the arrogance of the head staff members.

The waiter and waitress we had were great but the disconnect between the management and the team below them is very evident.

Felt food over priced. 3 small scallops for $33 and 2 split prawns for $38.
$57 for eye fillet steak, no accompaniment s.

Food okay but no value for money. Nothing special about venue.

I'm not generally into up market restaurants as I feel uncomfortable in them (my issues....). However, we were made to feel right at home here. Celebrated our anniversary and glad we did it at 'The Atlantic'. Cannot fault the food nor the service.

Advertised silver service(with prices to match), no dress code, lots of young children, no tablecloths, no table settings, tables chipped. Husband had to wear hat due to sunlight, and had to manoeuvre table away from window. Had to ask staff to close blinds partially. No intimate dining (quiet spots), tables very close together. Very disappointed, considering it was a Birthday gift and we travelled from Adelaide. Lots of money for fish and Chips (over $300)!

I have been to Atlantic many times but this time I found the seafood platter not the best. The prawns were not the fresher. Was a bit disappointed.

For a 4 star fine dining restaurant in Crown it’s very disappointing that some staff are not as well trained as others and let the standard of service down. To make guests wait or forget to do what they ask is very poor service. Staff that seat you with other guests children ruins the ambience. My third visit was very poor standard and won’t be going again especially when it costs so much, you expect high standard. The food is also very low standard for the cost. Very disappointing.

Went there in Christmas Eve, I ordered a $65 Scotch Fillet which was oily, with too much of fat and very very thin (to the extent, you won’t call it a steak) and on top of that, it was burned!!!! Probably should have returned the steak on the spot, but with so many mistakes, I doubt how much better other meals could be. Also, my mouth was filled with bitter, waxy charcoal taste. Couldn’t wash it away with wine and water. Honestly, it is the worst steak I ever had in my life.

Food service was very quick and great food.
However drinks took a long time, waiter forgot our water and we had to ask again and the same with the beer and wine order.
When I booked I said it was my partners bday they called on Friday to ask his name as they were going to organise something a bit special for him, however that never happened

JUST PERFECT. my sister and I who love good food could not fault anything. The food was outstanding- Moreton Bay bug spaghetti was the must have dish. Staff gave just the right amount of support, kept our water topped up and wine too. We will certainly recommend The Waterfront for a special place to celebrate.

Service was just very poor, had to ask repeatedly for sparkling water, wines took up to 20 minutes to be delivered. Not offered coffee at end of meal. Service was just terrible given it was a $900 meal for 4 people. Place was not really busy. Food was good but perhaps only ok given the price. Wine list was very good value.

Good good, service excellent but let down by staff not asking a child or parents to turn off the child's mobile phone playing a game. Would expect a restaurant of this level to control that sort of thing.

Our anniversary dinner at Atlantic was fantastic. Food was exceptional and service was superb. We had the fish, John Dory andOysters to start. Fresh and flavoursome. We will be back.

The hidden cocktail bar downstairs is also worth a visit with yummy Mojitos served as well as lots of other drinks.

Thank you for making our dinner relaxing, special and enjoyable.

A special anniversary dinner for us turned out not to be so special. A busy Saturday night, a very noisy restaurant ,average food and extremely overpriced. Entree prawn salad 3 prawns cut in half on iceberg lettuce only $36.00 Main course small piece of John Dory overcooked $54.00. No recognition at the table for our anniversary. Wines overpriced especially the Riesling. A huge disappointment overall with the lack of choice on the menu and the price.

We reside in Adelaide but visit Melbourne quite often, my wife was celebrating her birthday and we booked The Atlantic for her special occasion. We previously enjoyed the dining experience and this was no exception the food was extremely tasteful, especially if you are looking for seafood we highly recommend the Atlantic. An amazing selection of wines is also available from many worldwide regions. Our booking was followed up both by message and a courtesy call (Callum) very professional.
