The service was excellent and in many ways made the night. They were attentive, but not overly and really seemed passionate about their work and making sure we had a great night.

The food was incredibly different to anything I have eaten. While we had 12 courses, they were sized not to fill but were delicious and varied.

We chose the matching wine option and were glad we did as we drank wines I would never have selected.

We loved it - a wonderful experience!

I thought that the food was a bit salty for my taste And it didn’t meet the high expectations I had.
But I still has a good time with my significant other.

We were welcomed to the restaurant with enthusiasm. Everyone was keen to share the ingredients of each plate - but with pride not because they had to. Very accepting of our 7 year old son

The food, wine and the staff. Especially the staff, every one of them made our dining experience that more enjoyable. Especially our sommelier (who’s name I forgotten) was amazing. Nothing was to much for him, friendly informative and a get asset to the company. We will defiantly be back. Thank you all so much for a night to always remember :)

Wow, what an experience. My husband and I loved it and will talk about it for a long time to come. We were blown away by the experience. The food was amazing, the waiters/waitresses were on the top of their game. Seemed to be very experienced about the food and wines. Being a top fancy restaurant we never felt uncomfortable in anyway. We were made to feel comfortable to ask questions about the food and presentation. would highly recommend the experience. We did it and loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!

Exceptional service backed up by quality food albeit some dishes were very small. Great presentation of food, wonderful views and attentive staff who went out of their way to ensure we had a fantastic wedding anniversary. We had the seasonal menu and while good I would question the worth of paying $275 a head and yes I am aware that you are paying for the ‘experience’. Drinks are well over priced as expected and we got charged $16 for ‘vestal’ water which is ridiculous ! Won’t be rushing back.

We had the chef’s seasonal menu and the first 6 courses where all outstanding especially with the nitrogen poured over herbs, really wow dish. However, their dessert was a big down fall. There’s no layers to it and the lavender sorbet tasted like cough medicine. Also, with th oyster, not very interesting in term of plating and a bit disappointed with its freshness. For the price we do expect every dish to be exceptional. Also, we have to say the service wasn’t outstanding, not warm and welcoming

Ten years ago in university, my best friend and I promised each other that one day we would go to Vue de Monde together. Safe to say, it was better than we could have ever imagined and far exceeded our wildest expectations. The staff, food, ambiance and view were sensational. It’s the best restaurant in Australia in the best city in the world. We wined and dined like royalty and will never forget such an incredible experience!

The team of Vue de Monde served us the most wonderful degustation menu, the nuances created made our tastebuds experiencing a travel through Australian terroir unbeknown to us (Europeans).
The service we experienced was professional, personal and friendship was added to every plate as we were served. A tour of the kitchen, storage, dish washer section and wine cellar after our meal, topped of with a photo taken together with the complete team, I cannot remember last time I felt so proud.

I was very lucky to celebrate my 50th birthday at Vue de mode, as a belated gift from my brother-in-law. We’d planned dinner and show on a Monday night, sitting down to the Seasonal Tasting Menu.

I’d never been to Vude mondo, and was immediately awestruck with the decor, staff presence and attention to us, and of course the incredible Melbourne view from the 55th floor. Very special.

From the first course, the dishes captured the taste buds and best-of-Australia produce. Fantastic Experience

The location is on a 55th floor which offers breathtaking views of Melbourne. The decor is pretty classy yet modern with a great Aussy vibe.
The service is second to none, so far the experience is building up for the meal which will blow your mind in flavors and artistry. The wine pairing was just right with the exception of this “bacteria” processed sweet wine.

We found both service of the very courteous and friendly. The food was exceptional and the pairing of the wines with each disk was something to dream about.

However invariably when the waiters provided an explanation of each food dish and or the accompanying they spoke a bit to fast to comprehend what they were saying.

If we ever won tattslotto we would dine here every week.

The most creative dishes I’ve ever experienced, and all of them taste amazing! Modern Australian cuisine, with fresh ingredients from different regions, using French cooking techniques. The theatre of the presentation was just right, the staff well trained only to please and make the meal most enjoyable. Be ready to spend, but worth every bite .

The food at vue de monde is absolutely amazing. The intricate detail of every single component is astounding and the wine list is gobsmacking. Service was not the exceptional standard I have experienced in my other visits dining here. An amazing experience for foodies. 17 dishes over 3hrs... WOW! Not to mention the little take home pack at the end.

Service was professional, making you feel special. I have eaten at some top restaurants around the world and this is No. 1.

We went for my Mum’s birthday which we had travelled to Melbourne to celebrate. This was the night and the experience that our whole holiday was centred around so we had high expectations. To say our expectations were exceeded would be an understatement. Our night was unforgettable. Amazing service. The food was not only delicious but immactualy and uniquely presented. Each course had us looking at each other saying “wow”. The standard was the highest I’ve ever experienced. Perfect!

The degustation chef's selection was excellent and served with great style and flair.

The staff acknowledged that we had a guest from London and made several comments/questions about her stay in Melbourne which was a nice touch.

The wine list is extensive and quite difficult to navigate. However once we had made a selection the wine waiter was superb in keeping our glasses lightly topped up with chilled wine.
