Wide range of food, very reasonable priced, gorgeous building and interior. Quite noisy on a Friday night but quietened down by about 8.30. Have been here a couple of times before and will definitely come again.

We were celebrating my wife's birthday and it was a great venue with lovely food at reasonable prices. My daughter has coeliac and it was great she had good options on the kids menu as this can be hard when dining out. This was special for her too!

The staff are friendly, courteous and attentive, the meals our great with a good range for Gluten free, Vegetarian with some food for Fractose free people as well. This place is value for money. We had 7 people order entree's and mains each with alcohol and the bill was surprisingly cheap. This is my 3rd visit and each time l take friends with me to introduce them to a place that believes in customer service and good food and drink for a great price. 5 Stars to this Establishment. Cheers we shall return soon.

The food was great as usual. The service was shocking; we waiting around 20 minutes before a waitress took our order. The drinks were took around 10 minutes before we received them; we ordered our drinks before the table next to us (they received theirs before us). We waited for around 20 minutes after we finished our meal; before I put my hand up to attract for waitress to order 2 coffees. The plates were still on the table. My friend asked what the service problem was caused by; to be told that there was 300 people to serve. We have been there numerous times on a Friday when it was that busy and encountered no such issue. We will dine there when possible on a different day.

Gave low review for service as we had to wait at least an estimated time of 40min before our meals were served.
We requested for meal order to be checked but the waitress did not provide an update. Instead, the next time she came to our table was with the food. During that time, we approach another waitress who merely told us to wait at our table and she'll come to us after as she was serving other customers, to which she never came.
Food quality was not as expected for steaks as it was not done for how well we wanted the steak to be done.

Good value and range of meals to choose from. Would like to see a "served with chips or salad" option instead of just chips.

I made a reservation but did not stay.
There were large functions which made it too difficult to talk and hear friends conversations.

We went to the Bank after eating at the Father's office and finding out it had the same owners. There were plenty of gluten free options for adults and kids and was just down the road from where we were staying. Great value for money and service was good. Amazing dessert too

Overall dinner was enjoyable, the food was great and service good. The configuration of the tables for two along the inner wall next to the payment point wasn’t ideal. The tables are too close together making conversation difficult. Couples sitting in this area eventually ask to be moved which is not fair on staff and patrons alike.

Such a stunning venue! And really great food and service. Able to get a large booking for a Friday night at just over a weeks notice as well, which was awesome. So hard to do in central Melbourne!

Ambiance, food presentation and value for money was excellent. However, they mixed up our orders - we requested for the Arancini with truffle but was served another variant instead. Ordered my steak as medium and was served a medium well instead. Nonetheless the food was excellent!
