                                                    Managed to get a booking with The Lounge at Hobart and I must say that the food are amazing! Super fresh ingredients and wonderful flavors and of course top class wine. I enjoyed the frogmore pinot noir so much that I got to get a bottle back home!

                                                    We felt rushed from the moment we sat down. While the service was friendly we felt rushed through the whole experience. As soon as we sat down we didn’t get a chance to look at the drinks menu before being asked what we wanted…. The same with the food. Plates were taken away while one of us was still eating and as soon as my wife finished her last sip of wine the eftpos machine was brought to our table to pay. For fine dining we felt like they just wanted us out the door and when you spend that munch money you should be able to have time to enjoy each course and not be rushed out the door. Food was really good so no issues there but feedback would be to allow your patrons to enjoy their time within the establishment.

                                                    An enjoyable evening only suggest maybe a vegetarian main course option and whilst view to water great distracted with reflection of seeing more of the kitchen than water front due to rebid ruin in windows - would be great if something could remove that reflection.

                                                    Having previously had an excellent dining experience in this establishment it was severely disappointing to find that experience was not to be repeated. The service was acceptable, the food was edible and the menu was very dreary. One almost thinks a great dining experience should be remembered and no attempt should be made to repeat that experience.

                                                    We had a fantastic evening at The Lodge. The service provided by Adrian was exceptional and the food was outstanding. We could not fault it and we would definitely recommend this restaurant.

                                                    Loved The lounge. Food was great, lovely wines, great ambiance. Only suggestion would be to include main size vegetarian dishes - all veg were designed as entree or sharing sides.

                                                    Having previously eaten at the Frogmore Creek Winery I was expecting the lounge to at least be on par but found both the food and cocktails lacking on presentation. Food was tasty but nothing to rave about. Staff were friendly and polite.

The staff were friendly, informative and present while the food was plentiful, well presented and delicious. This was our first visit to the lounge, we have been to frogmore creek at Cambridge previously and will return.

                                                    Service was fantastic - cannot fault. Food was ok, expected steak to be more flavourful.

                                                    We had a wonderful time. The food and wine were very enjoyable. Cocktails were well made. Mains price start at 35 dollars and head up from there

                                                    Food and wine were very basic. Did not meet our expectations at all. Cheeses and cured meats tasted like they were store bought. The pork was dry and the serving was too small. The scallops were decent but overpriced at 6 dollars a piece.
