Loved it, thanks for hosting us
Delicious food and an exceptional wine list. Great bistro feel. Well worth the money.
Food and service was amazing. We sat outside as it was the middle of summer, but ended up getting cold, so I would recommend dining indoors.
This is out favourite restaurant. Love the food and wine.
Stunning experience as always!!
Amazing wine bar to enjoy a nice meal & lots of good wine with friends :)
Food is super expensive and not that tasty at all! Not worth it in my opinion. Staff are lovely though and doing a fab job xx
What can be said about Carlton Wine Room that hasn't already been said? If you want great food, attentive wait staff with a great selection of wine, you've come to the right place. Their anchovy ricotta on fried bread will always be a fave and is what keeps me coming back. Partner had a vegetarian version with shiitake mushrooms (also very tasty). Rump cap cooked perfectly, chickpea pasta was delicious. Also, if you don't order their stracciatella, you'll be missing out.
We had our anniversary dinner here on Saturday night and couldn’t have been better. We had the Chefs menu which was well priced and amazing. Add a few wines and a great atmosphere, this is now one of my favourite places in Melbourne.
-The food was okay not good
- Nice place but dont have bar
- Not enough table ( we book for 4 people but put us together with some body table )
they always know what wine will go with the food you chose. I stopped using my own knowledge and now ask them .
So great to be back here!! Food as great as ever, with good wine and terrific (and fun) service. Never misses…
Fantastic food and wine and the staff were really helpful with our order. Worth every penny.
Love this place! Unfortunately the waiter forgot to pop in our mains order so we’re waiting an extra hour for the wagyu - not a problem, but he never came over to explain and seemed to avoid us! Food always amazing though!
Everything was incredible, and the service was amazing.
We had the chef’s menu for 6 of us which was a great choice. Wine was very good also.
Excellent food and service. Would highly recommend.
Absolutely delicious food and first class advice on the wine!
Amazing food, amazing place, we loved it!
Alex was AWESOME! He was so helpful and really made us feel safe and valued as customers
fantastic food, wine and atmosphere! Would recommend
We loved our dinner experience.Outstanding food, lovely service and very nice ambiance.
We will be coming back for sure.
Share plates outstanding flavours especially. It’s a great place to meet, share food with friends and excellent recommendations on wine by the glass for that is all we had.
Wonderful service. Thanks for seating us inside! So lovely to finall visit.
The staff organised for us to be sat inside due to the weather and it was so appreciated! The service was charming and helpful. The food was even more delicious than it looked - such beautiful textures and flavours together. The drinks were perfect. Only wish there were more dessert options! Can’t wait to come back again. Thank you so much Carlton Wine Room!
It was my birthday and they honestly made it amazing! Amazing service, food and wine!! Definitely coming back!!
Good experience shared with my friend ! Simple dish but very tasty ! Very huge list of wine ! And smooth service ! Highly recommended !
Our waiter was a dead set legend. The food is dumb good. Walked out so happy and pretty torched as well. Which was nice
Menu variety limited but food fantastic
Wine list superb
Food was delicious!
Amazing little gem. Our waiter was fantastic and suggested this funky sauvory orange wine that paired well with the small plates we got. Fantastic ambience, perfect for a date night or a glass of wine with a friend. Will definitely be coming back here
Wonderful to celebrate an alternate Oaks Day with my friends at CWR. Food was absolutely delicious. King Fish Ceviche and the granita dessert are my fav's but all incredible. We will all be returning - thinking of booking the open area for a larger Oaks Day group next year ? A shout out to Houston who did an amazing job putting up with us rowdy bunch of ladies!
Fantastic service, great wine selection by the glass, we were adventurous and wanted to try everything. We ordered many of the small plates and no mains. 2 dishes of the 10 we ordered we felt were overpowering the main ingredient, scallops and kingfish. They were both delicious but wanted to taste the seafood a little more. We loved - oysters, croquettes, aspargus, cheese, the potato panini. Fantastic dining experience. Would go here for a snack and casual drink.
Beautiful space, incredible food and wine selection, plus lovely and attentive staff :)
Consistently excellent- glad to visit again after lockdown!
Every dish was spectacular and the staff are fantastic
Impeccable as always. It’s just a pleasure to dine here.
being vegetarian was no issue for the staff . we has the set lunch and it was superb. every dish had undertones of various tastes. Staff were great , friendly and knowledgeable. wine list was extensive, we settles for by the glass to try 3 varieties , all of which were perfect
