Ordered the Reuben sandwich. One piddly slice of pastrami across is all it came with...for $16.

A Reuben sandwich should have a minimum of six slices of pastrami. It honestly tasted like a cheese sandwich and clearly the Stables are skimping on protein because that can only be described as poor.

We went to the Stables Cafe for family brunch at 10.30 having received a voucher from a less than satisfactory Mothers Day experience. Unfortunately the experience wasn't great. We sat down inside - the noise level was such that you really couldn't hear anyone other than the person immediately next to you. We ordered drinks, were given the menus, and once the staff got around to taking our orders we were told that half the provided menu was unavailable as it was ''too early''. 45 mins after we ordered, just as our meals were eventually about to be delivered we were advised by a waiter that there was no gluten free bread available for two of our party. Literally 30 sec later we were delivered eggs & bacon on gluten free bread, or so we were advised by another waiter. It clearly wasn't gluten free bread. 2 of our table were asked if they wanted more coffees, and when they said yes the coffees never arrived. By the time we received our meals, most other customers were getting food from the menu we were unable to order from because it was too early. The Allpress coffee is good, the food wasn't too bad, but the overall experience was a shambles.

Service was not so good.
We had to get the attention of staff to order drinks.
Food took 1h15min to arrive after ordering, and steak come very well done (ordered medium rare).

The stables at Como is a delightful and quite unique venue. The decor is lovely and the setting at Como adds to the appeal. The food was well presented and delicious. Table service also very good.
Perfect place to take guests who are visiting Melbourne.

The food was very disappointing (we had lunch). There were no specials available (e.g. soup of the day and pie of the day - we were told they didn't have any). The charcuterie platter didn't come with everything on the menu so we had to ask for the terrine which was then bought on a plate. The platter had way too much meat on it and not much else. The fries were good. I've been here before for breakfast and it was great so maybe that's the best time to visit.
