There was something in my glass of wine, a piece of plastic or something. I felt that a free one should have been offered when I was forced to take it back. Otherwise, chicken parma was excellent. Kids menu needs to be on the website, it's not clear that there is a kids menu which I suspect has something to do with the place being so empty on such a busy game night.

Fast and friendly service as always. Special requests catered to. Great pre-match atmosphere. Thanks for making our mother-daughter catch up feel like a fun occasion.

With the food coming out so quickly I thought it wouldn’t be very nice because it was obviously pre cooked, but it was actually very tasty.
The old set up used to be a lot better with more tables having a view of the ground however it was still good.

Unfortunately, two of the 3 dishes we ordered comprised mainly of French fries which made the coast associated with both a little expensive considering what was on the plate (chicken Parma / beer battered fish).

We went to the Studio before an AFL game to celebrate a birthday.
The venue was lovely and the food and service couldnt be faulted.
Our waitress Rachel was amazing and made our special night a real winner.
Would definately go back again for a meal before a game and if you want a nice venue to celebrate a special occassion when visiting Etihad then this is the place for you .

We found the service to be outstanding! the waitresses were very friendly and knowledgeable and the meals and drinks were prompt to arrive. The food portions were large, the food was ok! They brought out our son's dessert with a birthday candle, a lovely touch. Recommended for a meal before a footy match!

A great spot to celebrate a Birthday, two years in a row in fact. We requested a table by the window and they did not disappoint, it was an awesome spot with a top view of the ground! The mood and atmosphere provide the perfect balance of a casual, chatty, catch up, and a real special treat too. The staff were superb, very friendly and accommodating. Food was delicious, as it was last year too! Get the prawns! A wonderful selection of meals, the whole party had something different. Steak was cooked to perfection. Such a great place to celebrate Birthdays and footy! In fact we stuck around until half time to enjoy the bar and the view. Same time, same table next year!

Great location and view of the ground prior to a football game. Food, however, is very ordinary. Probably only a couple of levels ahead of getting take away food at the ground. Very expensive so poor value for money.

We had a pleasant dinner before the footy at Arena View. The staff are very friendly and helpful - lovely young people. The food was adequate and well prepared - its not gourmet or terribly special but its fine. It is a bit pricey for the level of the food but the venue is great.

A limited but adequate menu. The lamb on spiced pilaf was very good, but the 'burger' was loaded with onion and chips and was very poorly executed for the money charged.
A quiet night where the service was very good.

Having dined here the week prior and being well looked after by the staff, I was very disappointed with the service this time around. The server was quick to get our initial drinks order and then attempted to rush our meal orders which seemed odd as it was relatively quiet in the restaurant. We had not just finished our entrees, with the plates still on the table, when the mains arrived and the 2nd lot of drinks ordered on receipt of the mains didn't arrive until after finishing our mains.

We received our entree's but they had "misplaced' the docket and therefore forgot our mains until we reminded them. Food came up reasonably quickly after that but we had to rush as it was nearly game time. A complimentary round of drinks was offered as an apology.

Meals arrived in a quick time which is good if you want to be sitting in your seat at the start of the game
the previous time our ticket got lost or there was a malfunction and we didn't get to our seats till nearly 1/4 time

The Manager took the time to come to our table and make apologies for this which was very nice of him
the only thing this time was our chips where stone cold but where replaced with no problem

We had an early booking, and arrived way before our allocated time. The staff were very friendly and organized for us to sit to one side and have a drink while setup was completed. A staff member came & notified us when everything was ready. The ordering process along with drink orders was handled efficiently. Staff were very attentive during the meal. The entree and meals were more than enough and enjoyed. The view out onto the ground is something special and added to our enjoyment of the venue. The main thing that stood out for us was the friendliness of the staff.

Dealing with a crowd at a big football game, particular when the game is about to start, would be incredibly demanding and stressful. Despite the filthy mouthed, misogynistic language surrounding them, the staff were absolutely fantastic & accomodating. We were seated promptly & able to order our food in the midst of the beginning of the game. All staff members were courteous & the food was enjoyable. Adding security staff to manage antisocial behaviour would enhance the overall experience.
