    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.

    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.

    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.

    Waygood was indeed, way good. Had the Tuesday Neighbourhood Nights menu, which was mostly gluten free (big win!) and very good value. Deliciously fresh tasting with just the right sized servings. Added a swordfish skewer for protein amongst the vegetarian offerings. Staff were friendly without being overbearing, and made helpful, knowledgeable suggestions, while recognising we knew a fair bit about wine. Only slight downside was the noise level but not so intrusive as to make conversation impossible.

    Sounds like you had a fun night with lots of positives...

    Dined as a group of 8 on a quiet afternoon, only 2 other tables sitting inside. The food was delicious as always, but service was a bit disappointing - staff were slow to take orders and bring out drinks (we had to chase up staff multiple times) and general attitude was a bit cold and abrupt. Perhaps not best for big group dining!
