    Lives up to it's name. The only disappointing part of this is that I didn't get around to going sooner. Definitely one of the best, if not the best, dining expierence in Richmond.

    I booked a table for my birthday with the impression that we would be doing drinks and some of us would also order food. The staff were incredibly attentive and friendly but the woman who I assume owns the establishment was incredibly rude and condescending to me and my friends. The first thing she asked when we arrived was how long we would be there. She was upset that we were mostly having drinks and not having a full course meal (this is at 5:30pm after work) which when I booked the table it must’ve been an easy detail to miss because it let me book without selecting just dinner specifically. The way she went about confronting me was highly unnecessary. I was trying to be amicable and we were all open to being moved elsewhere but apparently they were “fully booked” (which was not the case it seemed as the night went on) and she quickly dismissed any kind of resolution and seemed to want to be angry. Whilst I can appreciate why the owner was upset, at the end of the day we were paying customers that spent a decent amount each and also tipped despite feeling incredibly unwelcome and shunned. I debated even leaving a review because I like supporting small businesses and know it’s a difficult economic climate right now. But that’s absolutely no excuse to treat other people the way that we felt treated.
    WAYGOODResponded 1 day ago
    I totally understand and I'm so sorry to read your review, I'm glad to hear the other staff looked after you attentively. There is a note on the booking reservations system that dinner booking Fridays and Saturdays have full meals however totally understand where you are coming from. I'll touch base this week with all the staff and make sure we communicate much more thoughtfully and appropriately. I'm very mindful of service culture which I believe we do get right however not on this occasion.

    Food was fantastic and great service. However, there are inconsistencies with the pricing on the website, which advertises "Local wine for just $10-$12 a glass or indulge in a 500ml carafe for $30-$35." This beverage offer wasn't available (or advertised) in restaurant on neighbourhood nights.
    WAYGOODResponded on 5 June 2024
    Thank you for joining us and it sounds like you really enjoyed our neighborhood nights offer. Oppys re the website info ... "Our Bad" ...that has now been updated and thank you to you letting us know.

    Excellent! We had a few late changes to numbers and Carmel was very understanding and accommodating. Delicious food in the Feed Me menu with options for gluten free easily added. Ingredients were seasonal and dishes well constructed and presented. Interesting wine list. A great neighborhood find.

    A BIG hello from Carmel, we are pleased that your felt looked after so well :)

    Absolutely lovely restaurant! Went here for our anniversary and the service was lovely from first walking in, the food was incredible and so much good vegetarian food - I cannot recommend the carrots with whipped feta enough. Amazing they also had 500ml wine options which is great for sharing for two who can't manage a whole bottle.
    WAYGOODResponded on 5 June 2024
    We are thrilled your enjoyed everything from the food, the wine option of 500my and more importantly that you felt it was a special night to mark your anniversary.

    Nice intimate place, food amazing and service great. Bar seats are not the most comfortable area to sit and would not have booked that area had i have known how uncomfortable it was. The manager on duty was unprofessional and spoke inappropriately to the staff and we could here everything she said.
