Young and Foolish
Great experience, thank you. Love the new style dining room, the new menu was amazing (we had the fish and lamb salad). Tasty and fresh, a really top quality meal. Service as always is awesome. Emma is great!!! Thank you we will be back really soon.
As always amazing service and the food was timely and on point. The barramundi was cooked to perfection my husband had the rib eye which was mouth watering. I love the ambience here, friendly and inviting - and the fig and almond gelato to take home was amazing. Thanks again we will be back!!!
I found the experience was quite pleasant, service was great. Bit disappointed by the amount of alcohol you get for the price, that’s something to be reviewed.
Great service and food. Definite must for a quick luncheon.
You can see, the owners have attention to detail and have but their heart and sole into the business. Well done and keep up the good work. I would love to see a little more variety on the menu, I’m certain the owners are Greek, because of the Greek sweets, why not add a little Greek influenced food to the menu, it would be refreshing amongst all the Asian restaurants. Staff are wonderful.
Good neighbourhood gem. Good service, reasonable collection of alcohol and quite a few meal choices.
Very tasty food, lovely atmosphere. Will definitely come back again.
The food and ambience of the restaurant was outstanding! Definitely recommend the brekky and brunch options. Serving time can be improved and also we couldn't split the bill as the manager advised it was not possible due to busy hours.
Overall satisfied with the experience.
Great food, service and prices. Can’t wait to go back.
Nice food with a great selection. Vegan food which is why we booked there
Nice place. We will go again
Great service, good food, not a huge range on the menu, which made it easier to make a choice. Very Happy overall
My wife and I have become regulars at Young and Foolish. We rate Young and Foolish as being one of Melbournes top eating venues. It is so good that it’s hard to see how it could possibly be improved!
We have in the past viewed Young and Foolish as being one of Melbournes ‘best kept secrets’ but we now notice on an increasing basis, that people are becoming aware of how good this place is. I imagine in time Young and Foolish might be forced to meet this increased demand by extending their opening hours.
The food, its presentation, the professional way in which is served can not be faulted. Perhaps the only issue I have would be the vinyl seating which can be uncomfortable, particularly during warm weather. The vinyl might wear well and be easy to clean but its not comfortable.
Other than that I give a CLEAR 10 out of 10 to Young and Foolish. Thank you. My wife and I will be continuing repeat customers.
Food with plenty of flavour served by warm and friendly staff. Their coffee beans are also very good. I always look forward to eating at Young and Foolish.
Found the menu a bit tricky to order from. I guess its very hipster and that's ok. Just felt like a seafood basket and ended up with fish bait.
Great place to have in Brandon Park. At last, a good dining spot. Good menu, friendly place.
I always enjoy dining at Young and Foolish.The atmosphere is good and I’ve never eaten food that wasn’t delicious.I like the individual flair with popular dishes.
My only criticism is that our drinks were slow to come a couple of times( not last thurs) Once we were given a free cocktail & an apology - very rare these days ,which impressed us.
We took friends from Hobart to Young & Foolish a few weeks ago and they enjoyed it very much and praised it later.The only negative then was that ,again the drinks were slow & the waiter brought us big red wine glasses for our champagne .It wasn’t a big deal for us & they were quickly swapped to flutes with a strawberry.
I recently suggested having coffee at Young & Foolish with a friend & she was negative saying she’d been there with a group of ladies.There was a problem with the seating ,service and they were put off by the bright green risotto.
I like the all day breakfast idea & good choices for lunch.I think a couple of additions to the dinner menu would give it wider appeal.I was disappointed when the chicken burger with Asian slaw was removed I VERY rarely choose a burger but yours are juicy & tasty & the chips fantastic.Your cakes are delightful ,always look extra fresh.Great to have a quality restaurant with reasonable prices so close to home .My husband is a fan.
The coffee is great, the service is good but the food is over rated
The food is amazing,the service phenomenal and I will definitely return
The restaurant was excellent, but the computer booking system was a complete failure embarrassing both the restaurant and the customer.
Great neighbourhood gem. The service is fantastic with staff being very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Great menu.
I had the seafood linguini which was amazing, the service was fantastic too. Our waitress took her time with a couple of people who were unsure as to what they wanted to eat, she went over their options and help them choose a meal that they too enjoyed.
Definitely will be going back to have the linguini again :)
Keep up the great work guys!!!
Great place for our business meeting, excellent service, delicious coffee and exceptional food. Thank you kindly.
I ordered a burger and was very surprised when it had no salad on it! Falafel, sauce and bun without crisp greens and tomato was unpleasant, couldn’t finish it, pity as the flavour was good.
Food was average. Prices were not reasonable for the quality. The best aspect of the place was the gelato
Food was good, service very good, the restaurant was full so pretty noisy. Might choose a less busy time next time. Considering how busy they were, the food came quickly.
Hi Ken, thanks for your review! Weekdays are a good time to visit, we're also open for dinner from Wednesday to Saturday and have an extensive menu that we'd love for you to try. We're very glad that the service was terrific and hope to see you again soon!
The staff is the best part of the place.food n desserts are always excellent.coffee is one of the best around,the gelato magnificent
Lovely review Natasha!! Thank you for taking the time to visit us, we're super happy that you enjoy your time here and we'll be sure to let the staff know of your compliments as it'll make there day.
beautiful atmosphere. life music .very friendly staff. delicious food
Thank you for taking the time to write a 5 star review AllaS! So glad you enjoyed our Live Music, we're bringing it back to Friday nights very soon and might be adding in a Happy Hour in there too.
Great food at reasonable prices. We all love the griled calamari salad!
Hi Almah, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The grilled calamari is one of our favourites too, nothing better than feeling good after eating a healthy meal! We'd recommend the Beetroot Cured Salmon next if you don't mind something a bit different.
Great place, I didn't get jam with my fruit toast, and I don't think the fresh orange juice was worth $7.50, other then that everything was nice.
Forth time I've been there and it's never let me down - even in the busy times. Great food and drink, great atmosphere and staff.
You rock Tony, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a terrific review! We look forward to having you at Young & Foolish many many more times.
Very good service, excellent food and drinks, good ambience.
Thank you so much for your review Ian! We're very happy to hear that you had a good experience with us and we look forward to having you again soon.
I've been to the restaurant a few times and for different meals and the food is always great. The interior styling is modern and now that there's the outside dining it makes it a great place for all weather. Highly recommended!
Hey Bronwyn, Such a pleasure to have you at Young & Foolish. Thank you for the kind words and the recommendation. Hope you're having a terrific Tuesday!
We are regulars as it is so good. In catch up with friends here and have business lunches. Occasionally we have some special events or simply let’s go out as a family breakfast, lunch or dinner. Love the booths and great service from our regular staff members who serve us and really listen to our orders and what we want!
