We had a perfectly cooked steak bernaise and a three point lamb rack expertly pink.
Very attentive waiter and nice outlook of the Docklands.

The second time I have been to this restaurant. The food is good, the staff were friendly and and around regularly to the table to top up the wine and water and answer questions. Noise level was fine, though could get a little noisy if fully booked out.

Our meals were good, but my wife thought her lamb lacked taste, the Water the was delivered to out table was at room temperature, this was probably because the water was sitting in bottles waiting on customers as we walked out.

Very disappointed as we had to turn back from the door after an hour drive up to Woolshed and the reason was because we didnt have our id on us when we were never told that we needed to present one

Great service. A number of our guests were running late and were able to place their order over the phone, with the meals prepared in time for their arrival at the restaurant to enable them to eat their food with the rest of the party. Excellent choice of meals and drinks.

Lovely spot for dinner. The food was good. Some plates were overflowing with food, some were sparce. The food was well cooked. Lattes at the end of the meal were lukewarm. We should have sent them back, but we were getting ready to call it a night.

Very, very pricey for pub level food and service. Couldn't really recommend. Really not impressed with the disingenuous use of RBA recommendations to charge 1.76% for all card transactions (including EFTPOS!)

Very sports focused with big screens and noisy bar spaces. Friendly table service in quieter restaurant areas, less friendly service from the girls at the bar beforehand. Good location but not enough is made of the water views for those there for the restaurant experience. Good food. Prices ranged but steaks over priced unless you get a steak sandwich. We enjoyed the night well enough, but not sure we would return.

The Woolshed was an amazing experience to dine at ! My partner and myself will definitely be returning for more meals.

Not only were the staff pleasant they were extremely accommodating (as it was my partners birthday they provided a complementary cake and sung to him ) this was hugely appreciated !

Our waiter was AMAZING. He was extremely quirky with his serving style and made our night a blast.

As for the food. It was incredible. The flavours were sensational and the pork just melted in your mouth !!

Thanks to all the incredible staff at the Woolshed :)

It's been a number of years since i had been to the Woolshed, but coming back it did not disappoint, with the same professionalism and outstanding service shown by every staff member in attendance. The atmosphere was welcoming and upbeat and on a particularly cold and dreary Melbourne day it was warm and comfortable. Will absolutely go back!

Great service two meals were excellent, one was a little burnt and I felt for the price a little something extra on each plate would have been nice.
Overall though a very enjoyable meals with amazing views and a great character serving us.
On line booking was easy and well designed.

We had a table for two for lunch before a football match and enjoyed a drink and some entrees so share. Apart from another customer complaining about their serve of wine size, which was fine by the way, just a picky customer, we had a fabulous time. Service, food and drinks were all great. I would love to eat here again and also would like to try some drinks from the bar after a football game as the list of drinks was impressive and needs a further looking into by me!

We visited the Woolshed on Saturday night for dinner.
We'd been there for drinks in the bar before but never to the restaurant and we thoroughly enjoyed it .
The atmosphere was relaxed, the staff were attentive and friendly. They were busy, being a Saturday night but still available, nothing was too much trouble
The meals were great, we had 3 different dishes and each one was enjoyable. There was plenty of choice on the menu and the main meals were very generous. We certainly didn't leave hungry
We'll definitely be back.

The food was really nice and the staff were very friendly. There was a huge lack of atmosphere for a Saturday night which was very disappointing. The beer list was all boutique and my husband drinks VB, Carlton (what he would call normal beer). This is why we left straight after we'd finished eating. He unfortunately was unimpressed with that the most. Maybe catering for non-hipster types would be beneficial.
