It was strange to make a booking for dinner and to be seated at the lounge opposed to the restaurant especially when we indicated it was our anniversary. When we asked we were able to be moved however it was a bit of a weird experience. The food was average when compared to Cambridge. Service in the restaurant was very good.

Always delivers. The produce is top quality, the drinks are great, the ambience is also reliably relaxed.

Excellent food, table service very good & attentive. Good choice of wines, although mostly Frogmore (which are very good).

Our only disappointment was the lack of choice on the menu.
The food was delicious and beautifully presented

From the moment we arrived we were treated like vips and given an amazing table with veiw and the wine and food was amazing. Location beautiful, and service so friendly. Best oysters we have ever had! Highly recommend. We will be back and bring others.

Food and atmosphere was great. The staff did not provide the specials list at time of ordering however accommodated a very last moment change of order to when the specials menu was obtained. Staff were very friendly but knew very little about the source of the food being served beyond just from being in Tasmania.

The menu was limited and it was quite cold inside the restaurant with little ambiance. However the staff were friendly and helpful but we were just a bit underwhelmed by the menu.

Our mains came out before our starters had been cleared. It isn’t the end of the world, but it’s a pretty basic error for somewhere that is targeting the more expensive end of the market.

Lack of vegetarian options. Cheese plate was far too expensive for what was on it. Took a long time for mains to arrive. Service was great though. Very attentive.

Was expecting a more ‘fine dining’ experience. The tables weren’t set, our pre-dinner cocktails arrived after our mains, water glasses took too long to be filled up, we had to ask for wine, and a different waiter brought us our food - so didn’t know who ordered what.
Otherwise, the food was delicious. Catered for gluten free well, but with main ingredients removed.

Limited veg options. All desserts contain alcohol and request for variation refused (I’m allergic) and main meal took 90 minutes to arrive after the entree. Ate at nearby Old Wharf the following day and it was the complete opposite.

Disappointing. We went for xmas eve. No decorations in the whole restaurant. We had a 4:30 reservation for dinner because there was nothing else available at all (per open table anyway). When we left at 7:30, only two other tables of 15 were used. For the first 1 hour 15 minutes, we were by ourselves. We would have chosen to eat at 6 or 7, NOT 4:30!

No place setting on tables, they brought us what we needed only as we had the food. The kids had mocktails- soda water+ cordial= $12 each! Come on!

Food was fine-- fish, beef, mussels, cheeseboard. Portions were Ok. Not tiny, but not huge.

We had hoped for a better experience.

Loved the venue but it was difficult when we asked for an outside table. There was no one outside and hardly anyone inside in the area we we seated. I was told we could not go back inside if we changed our mind, which was fine. Then the same waitress came over again and warned us that if it rained or was windy we would need to leave. It was a beautiful afternoon! Guy at the desk was rude to us when paying. Very arrogant and dismissive. Very disappointing.

The food was great but not enough variety on the menu. We had a great time.
The service was ok, we waited too long between entree and main.

Fairly average food, very, very loud in the dining area— we had to yell at each other— and service was difficult to get a hold of. Hard when you need to remain seated. Wouldn’t be coming back

The best service you could hope for. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Yummy food, beautiful wines, top glassware to top it off. Great location right on the harbour with mountain views and afternoon sun streaming in. Inside plush comfortable green velvet chairs to relax in and enjoy the sophisticated ambience

A pleasant but uninspiring evening, food was well prepared and well cooked but not exciting. Having eaten at the Frogmore Creek winery restaurant on several occasions the Lounge runs a poor second. The food at the winery is innovative and makes a meal there an exciting experience. By comparison the Lounge food is very conventional.

We booked a table expecting the main room but were put the side room with zero ambiance and poor service. Our empty glasses weren’t taken away when new drinks were brought, it was like being in a pub but paying double the price

We love Frogmore but on this occasion it was very poor. The standard of food has gone down hill fast. Sirloin steak with rubber like mushroom and dry Parmesan gnocchi was terrible and tasteless. The staff are lovely which is such a shame for them. Sorry but we won’t be returning
