    Five friends enjoyed great food and a fun evening. I find the hard surfaces make the venue a little too noisy for my liking, but I understand that that's the way restaurants are these days. Excellent service from the sommelier.

    Food was amazing. Service a bit sketchy. Worst bit being told they needed the table after 90 minutes. Especially as nothing was mentioned at time of booking. Ruined the night.

    Can get very busy which led to one of our dishes being forgotten but very apologetic. Still a good restaurant and very friendly knowledgable service.

    Not a good evening. Not the first time dining there. First time was to be impressive, space, atmosphere and dining. Third time, harassed and made to feel unwelcome. The number of times we were reminded of their need to have the table back for their next guests together with the chef on the floor clearing tables made for an unpleasant unwelcome evening. We will not be returning.

    Very International feel to this very cosmopolitan restaurant . Food and service is great. Atmosphere very grown up and a bit glam.

    Unfortunately there was some sort of system error/failure, so our order was lost. And we were left waiting quite a long time for our meal. Otherwise I couldn't fault Bar Machiavelli.

    Love the vibe and the food. Wine list expensive. Maitre d' a little offhand though under the pump. Needs to focus on one set of customers at a time rather than leave people 'hovering' after starting to direct us to a table and then whizzing back to the desk. Some floor staff seemed a bit "deer in the headlights" and overwhelmed. Will return as have been on less busy nights and dined at the bar and atmosphere much more relaxed.

    Great atmosphere and held high hopes based on the original clarence street restaurant. However was disappointed. The dishes seemed to lack the same quality for the price. Bring back the original Antipasto plate from clarence st.

    The pan fried crumbed prawns were so good and jumbo in size. The truffle pasta was sensational as was the service and the french Rose! Thankyou for looking after my mother and I so well.
