The Kettle Black
The service was really bad. We had to stand out for 15 minutes and the waitress asked us two times whether we had made a reservation and sent people who came after us inside before she arranged our seating. The food was really bland. My partner ordered the avo meal and it was so bland. I ordered the bacon Benedict and the bacon was almost raw. Very disappointed.
The food was fairly good. But I shouldn’t have eaten outside cuz the food got cold quickly. I liked the coffee so much.
Breakfast was delicious and the staff were lovely
avocado on toast and pulled lamb salad were delicious with really interesting flavors. Breakfast cocktails fantastic as well - lovely for a catch up!
Positive was good came out quickly, coffee and chai were great. The hummus and kale salad was delicious. The location and setting were good.
Negative was the raisin toast and jam were not great. Also the chili crab scrambled eggs were flavourless and only some outdoor tables were heated. Also waited 5min to catch a waiters attention for salt and ended up going to find it myself.
Our first dining out experience since iso. The service and food was incredible. We had lots of space. I was so impressed. Will be back soon
Food delicious as always! Acoustics of the room made it a little hard to hear though...
The pace has a good vibe and is aesthetically pleasing but the service is very slow ( took over 25 to even be asked if we wanted a drink) even though it was average busy. Food was average, good portion sizes, but looked nicer than it tasted and overpriced for what it was. I think as well some of the menu items are not quite right in terms of having a burger, but it doesn’t come with salad or chips or anything, which normally is fine you can just order it as a side but they didn’t have that as an option so the meals felt incomplete. Friends all agreed it was average and probably won’t go back as the look of the place was the only real selling point.
Great food and service
Such a weird feeling going out for brunch for the first time post covid-19 but we loved every minute of it. Well worth the wait for the ricotta and blueberry hot cake (massive portion though). Nice being served by the lovely waitresses at Kettle Black and so friendly and prompt. Definitely and expensive brunch but loved the breakfast cocktail ☺️🙌🏼
The bacon was microwaved.
Food lacked flavour, poor value for money, staff ok
Very disappointing! 1.5 hr wait for average food!
The staff were quite rude
Terrible food, terrible, bad service. Would not recommend, very overrated and disappointing.
Awesome experience, can't wait to come back next time we are in Melbourne!
Open table took my online reservation. They do not accept reservations for groups less than 10 people on weekends. Fortunately they still managed to find us a table. Kudos to the staff.
