Fantastic astir service under difficult circumstance. Still made our evening special
Restaurant is in a great spot and the outdoor area is very nice. Not the cheapest place in the world but the quality of food is worth it
Attentive service, wonderful food, a lovely way to celebrate my husbands birthday.
The staff is friendly and professional with being in you face. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. There is plenty of room to move and unlike many other restaurants diners are not on top each other. A great restaurants for lunch and special occasions.
Fantastic night, with an excellent waiter, will definitely return
Good quality and yummy seafood and cocktails are great also. Good location and service attentive
Service was a little slow to begin with even though it wasn’t busy but the food was amazing and beautifully presented.
The food was excellent, very tasteful, well balanced flavors and good size servings.
The service was outstanding.
And the decorations and location is really good.
We have been dining at Waterfront for over 7 years, unfortunately on this occasion some of our mains were average. The manager handled the situation very well so we will probably give them another go in the future.
Amazing seafood. Great service. Awesome location. Fabulous wine list.
central location great value great food great service
The red curry with snapper was phenomenal. Service was fantastic and overall dining experience was great
Good seaford and salads, room was a bit cramped but good service
Attention service and welcome smile. Linguine marinara was tasty with generous amount of seafood, slightly on oily side. Reasonable wine list. Lovely ambience and great views along river.
Brilliant steaks in a lovely outside seating area and excellent service
We had a great birthday experience! Super friendly staff
Great place to take your loved one for a special occasion. Food is always at the highest level for freshness and choice. The staff are friendly and helpful. I'll be going again. Thanks Waterfront team
perfect great food and great service have been vising this place for 8 year 10 times a year and its so good
Fantastic restaurant - amazing food, exceptional service, we had an amazing night there for our wedding anniversary.
Birthday lunch... never disappoints. One of our favorite places to dine in Melbourne
Delicious food bit pricey but paying for nice ambience.
Very busy place not go in week and nights if you like to have a better experience
Amazing as always! We dine here every valentines and every wedding anniversary
Pricey but great atmosphere in outdoor seating. You're paying for the location.
Food was good and you get served fast. Waiters, waitresses were attentive.
Food poorly made, frozen mussels, even off mussels, risotto tasted like mac and cheese.
Pretty much ruined my night to be honest, had high hopes.
Management team are great and always very customer focused.
I really enjoy earring there and they have great deserts
The food was amazing but our server was quite rude.
A beautiful dining experience. We were really happy with the quality of the food and service.
Excellent food and service - great spot for an outing
As always a very enjoyable experience. Just love this place. Thank you to the courteous staff that made our dining experience very special.
A great lunch experience
Serving sizes are not cheap in either price or quality BUT, boy are they generous and yummy!!! Friendly staff, great drinks, every dish has enough WOW factor to impress a new friend or your dearest love. Overlooking the hustle and bustle of the Southgate thoroughfare, the acoustics are just right that you can have an initimate conversation without the passing parade or the table next to you interrupt your conversation. Lovely for anniversaries, friendly enough for a casual dinner. Note the sushi/sashimi plate, the curry and the 3 platters - for these definitely bring an appetite and leave your inibitions aside - you will get your hands dirty! They've done away with the finger bowls but the wet napkins suffice. Dessert is anything but shabby so leave some space for it. Bon appetite.
Great location, amazing food, and a good wine list, all making a wonderful night as usual at the Waterfront. Our favourite place to dine at Southbank.
With a fellow worker retiring after 33 years I thought it fitting to take him to what is one of the best restaurants in Australia. The food is brilliant and wonderful service. Do yourself a favour get the Morton Bay bugs.
Whatever good you have heard about this place, forget it. Overpriced. Poor service. Average food. Front of house guy only interested in getting his tips (looked after 1 table the whole time we were there). Seafood not cooked (yuk, advised waitress to let chef know, no response, nothing). Just so disappointing. Will never go back.
Great service and very good food
Apart from the food and drinks being twice as experience as they should be, the food and service was good.
Have been several times, however this time not as good as past visits. Fish was overcooked. Table that we were seated at originally was good,then we were asked to change tables. Not very professional. If a booking has been made, then it should stand...
A tad on the pricey side, but I’ve absolutely no complaints about the food!
Lovely setting with a great table outside.
There is about of bustle due to location but that just adds to the atmosphere.
Food didn't seem as fresh as usual.
Also didn't get the usual ciabbiata bread, instead some pistachio type bread which want as nice
