    Entree’s were great mains were terrible. Had an exorbitantly expensive and tough rib eye overpowered by Kilpatric style sauce and equally tough pork main both served almost cold. Wine by glass was limited. White was good but Shiraz poor and lacked flavour and both recommendations. Expected more. Great venue for ambience quick drink and nibble but ultimately dissatisfied .

    Best dining I’ve had in ages. Plenty of restaurants with more visibility on socials can only dream of being as good as this place.

    We went on an uncharacteristically chaotic Monday night, and service was a little slower than we're used to. But the food was impeccable, they accommodated all our dietaries with grace and everyone had a wonderful time. This restaurant is a true Melbourne gem that we'll keep returning to!

    We had a super nice evening and it was all pretty great - only area for improvement would be more vegan options if possible please.

    Outstanding service that made us feel very comfortable, paired with delicious food. The perfect spot to show off to someone visiting from out of town.
