Contemporary American
The aim of our food is to showcase the amazing produce to be had within a 200 km radius of Melbourne. Taking in the Otway’s, Gippsland, and the Peninsula. Whole carcass usage looks at both our primary cuts such as fillet, sirloin, rump and T-bone as well a secondary cuts and offal. A Mornington Peninsula based produce supplier allows us to change quickly with the seasons to present to you a balanced menu. Dry aging is a technique we use at The Breslin which allows the meat to break down with natural enzymes and removes water content from the cut. This technique presents as a very tender piece of meat with good gamey flavours.

    If everyone who goes here tried the hummus with chorizo dip, they would be very happy. It's just a taste sensation. The bread was very very very good too. Also, while they have the banoffee pie cocktail, you should give it a try in place of dessert. It's a great way to end a meal. Highly recommend.

    Great food and ambiance. The beef wellington was to die for. A little pricey...but worth it. Just keep an eye on total cost as you go.

    Excellent waiting staff but the food was just ok. Duck was a bit over cooked and the mussels on my friends linguine were over cooked too. Not a lot of shellfish with the linguine either. The waiting staff saved the day for this restaurant.

    We reserved a table on line, which was quick and easy. Nice spot along the Yarra easy to find. Meals were a little pricey, but you get what you pay for! All four of our meals were delicious. Smashed potatoes were excellent staff were kind and very helpful. Definitely recommend giving it a try!

    Great food and friendly service. A little loud to allow discussion with a large group of interstate colleagues but that’s the nature of such venues and should not be viewed as criticism Definitely will be back.

    I normally avoid the obvious tourist-trap places where the Breslin Bar & Grill is located, but we were staying nearby on a business trip and it was convenient. The food was fantastic. We had a bit of everything and there's nothing I wouldn't order again.

    Everything went smooth from getting seated to ordering and having dishes recommended and if they didnt have a certain meal we were made aware before ordering. One minor slip was they brought the desert menu out before the mains but thats fine when food is brought out so fast and when it was already put through it wasnt completely forgotten. Apart from that the food was great and definitely didnt lack flavour we ordered 3 selections (sliders, prawn cocktail, chili calamari, and main being pork full rack of ribs)

    Excellent service - prompt, polite and efficient. Food quality was outstanding and superbly presented and prepared. Entres: Highly recommend the wagyu beef tartare, yellowfin sahimi, freshly shucked oysters and baked scallops (awesome! real highlight). Mains: Porterhouse steaks were excellent. Only complaint was one steak that was ordered blue was mediem rare. It was still very enjoyable - excellent meat. Twice cooked chips were delicious as was the brocolini. Very good selection of wine by the glass.

    The team was understaffed for the number of tables there were when we visited. Food is good, but the service just wasn't up to scratch. Also servers didn't really have time to make recommendations because they were so busy. Outdoor seating is nice. I bring clients here when I am in Australia once a year and last year was much better.

    The food was nice, but over priced for what you got. The steak was tiny for $66 and over cooked, and the red wine jus was runny. The service was a let down. We asked the waiter for one thing and he got it wrong. The rest of the time we couldn't get anyone's attention, even though it was quiet.

    Cooked to perfection, we decided on the meat platter which included porterhouse, pork and beef ribs, chicken and lamb shoulder with and extra serve of the mixed ribs to share between 5 diners. Each cut was cooked perfectly and had their own individual taste and was presented on the platter separately and not stacked together cafe style. Busy Saturday night and the staff member provided excellent service and was able to wait on the table at the appropriate moments. Would definitely recommend.
