Very lovely wait staff. We would have liked to stay later but they wanted to close.
Meals were all good. Did not like being asked to tip when we were paying, this is Australia.

Service and setting are great. Our waitress was great. Wine pours are a bit small IMO.
Steak was ok but the amount of sauce they give you for the steak is nowhere near enough. I only had a 250gm steak and it was only enough for half. Ask for more and its extra $.
One of the party members asked for T-bone steak medium so the flesh close to the bone would be cooked. Steak was delivered rare and meat next to bone was raw.
Other party members meals were excellent and they removed the tbone from the bill even though we told them they didn’t need too. Good service

Absolutely love this venue, my husband and I have parents who have difficulty walking and getting out. However they love us taking them to this venue, it gets them out, it feels modern or in their words 'trendy' and they feel a little young again while the meals are of great value and never have found fault at any time. And really easy to get in and out of.
They also feel the standard of customer service and caring for them being older people in a younger environment is out standing.
My husband and are more frequent patrons in the bar before a football game!!

The food and particularly the service provided on the day was outstanding. There was attention to detail and customer focused decision making by the staff when one of the food items was not up to the mark. The staff also proactively picked up a dietary detail for one of us which was greatly appreciated.
One area of improvement is to be more accommodating/innovative of the dietary requirements of the individuals rather than be too rigid around the listed menu items, which was the case when I visited the restaurant.

Very disappointing service, from having to wait over 30 minutes to place our first drinks order to being attacked by the very rude and condescending manager, we were all upset when leaving. Will not return and wouldn't recommend.

We came for two things to celebrate a birthday with a pre-AFL game lunch, we were met at front of house after reserving a table on line and directed to our table overlooking the Docklands harbour. Table service and delivery from the kitchen was quick, easy and accommodating for our dietary requirements. As hearing issues in restaurants is a problem this day we had no problems hear each other, that's essential.

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 :)
