Waterfront Southgate Ratings and Reviews
Went there to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday and got the worst table in the restaurant: noisy, too large and with a lot of traffic. The guy at the door was really not excited that we even had a reservation and gave us the impression that the two of us and our baby are not welcome at all. Service was great, Food was good, but our evening was not really enjoyable given the table between kitchen and service area. Never again!
We met for dinner with friends. Service started off good but then suddenly deteriorated.
A group of people arrived, obviously a lot more important than us, as our service declined very rapidly.
The staff were all over this table and we were very much forgotten.
Maybe if we looked like they did we would have received the same service.
Actually it was quite amusing to see how much influence some people have on restaurant staff.
Food when it arrived was good but service and management attitude appalling. Over an hour for a drink, waitress knocked water over the table, ladies toilet only 2 cubicles! and no toilet paper on both occasions I visited. Not worth paying all that money. I organised it as a special meet up and v disappointed!
Booked Waterfron for my daughter’s graduation cekebration. Specifically requested, a week in advance, an outside table. When we arrived we were told there were none available. When I accused that I requested a ta Le a week earlier, they said they were already fully booked. This was an out right lie
Service was slow and had to continually ask for drinks.
Main redeeming factor was that the food was faultless.
Why bother offering special requests, when they are ignored.
A special night that should have been better
Was just overall a little disappointed. We advised them when we booked of my mums dietary requirements but they didn’t provide the right menu on arrival. We had to ask to order drinks as they weren’t taking our order. We had to ask twice for table water. They gave us a wrong meal so there was a wait on that. The seafood platter wasn’t value for money au all. Won’t rush back.
We went to have the paella and it did not disappoint. Another guest had a steak - cooked to perfection - and remarked on both the great flavour and tenderness. We sat inside but outside would also have been great, and it's an easy walk from public transport.
Went here for my partners 21st dinner. Just her and i.
Really amazing. At times loud due to other customers and big group but that is expected where ever you go. The table we were located was really good.
One point though we were seated and asked what drinks we would like straight away and asked to look at the drinks menu but she never returned next waiter to come to the table was to order our food. Not a inconvenience but just wanted to note it down.
But will come back again !
The food was excellent. The entree of scallops was simply outstanding as were the following bugs and prawns. The other stand was the Asian Greens, simply delicious. We had a great meal, great food, wine and ambiance. The staff were very pleasant and knowledgeable. Highly recommend
Starting with the location/view - it was immaculate. I took my partner there for his birthday and it couldn't have been more perfect! The fish and lamb racks were cooked perfectly, the chefs selection of sashimi was also great. Loved the cocktails and the vibe was nothing but amazing!
Would definitely recommend for a special occasion
We were celebrating our four year anniversary here with friends.
The night was perfectly still, the view and lights of the yarra were beautiful and the food was exceptional.
My only complaint was the service. Every 5 mins the waitress was asking us for mains.
It seemed we couldn't sit and relax and talk without being constantly interrupted.
It was annoying.
Overall it was magic.
