    We had a very enjoyable evening. The food and service were outstanding. Seating was very comfortable and the staff were very sincere in their welcome. We all thought the food was some of the best we’d had in a restaurant for some time. The grill was fantastic and beautifully cooked and served. We would definitely recommend to friends and will return soon.

    The food was brilliant. Steak cooked perfectly, lamb racks were delicious and the accommodation for our GF daughter was fantastic - didn't even have to ask for GF bread as we waited for mains, they just brought it over as I'd mentioned the GF requirements when booking online. We went for our son's 21st birthday and the guy at the door wished him a happy birthday as we entered. Great family evening for a celebration. Would certainly go there again.

    The wait staff were very attentive, professional and friendly. The steak was exceptional, bearnaise sauce was perfectly matched with the steak and the Creme Brulee was spot on. The Whiting and salad meal was very tasty as well. We would certainly recommend the Coal Cellar + Grill meal to our friends and will no doubt be back again. Well done everyone.

    Nice meal at Coal. Food was fresh, well prepared and tasty. Steaks were excellent. Problem was service. Server was slow and barely managed to smile. Although a Friday night restaurant was probably 60% full so did not appear to be rushed off their feet. Forgot one of our sides as well. Shame because all else was very nice.

    Had a lovely evening with my wife. Shared a delicious cured salmon starter with picked shallot salsa and roe - lovely and light and set us up well for the main course. We both had the eye fillet which was cooked to perfection: mine medium rare and my wife's medium (definitely a distinction). We finished off with a shared creme brûlée - i can resist most desserts with the exception of a brûlée. A bit on the high side when adding the whisky and wine, but such good quality and would go again.

Highly recommend we will definitely be coming back!

    I was excited to finally dine here, and while it was nice it really didn’t live up to expectations. Some of the food was slightly too cold, could definitely have been warmer. While the service wasn’t bad, it was very impersonal. Everyone seemed in a rush and didn’t really take the time to see how we were doing. The live music was a bit too loud for my liking too. For the price I would have expected a slightly better experience.

    Food was delicious and the atmosphere very nice. Our only real criticism was that we ordered aperitif drinks that did not arrive until we’d received our main and we had a long wait for our next drink. Would try again.

    We really enjoyed our quick $59 pre-theatre meal before heading over to Her Majesty’s. Menu was a little limited but the food was expertly prepared and presented. The complimentary sourdough starter was a nice touch. Wine by the glass choices were also limited but what we chose was very nice. The service was so efficient that we had time for a sneaky cheese platter at the end. Very nice over all but a little pricey with all the extras.

    We didn't know what we wanted to eat so we went with the Chef's feed me option. The food that was brought to our table was beautifully presented, well prepared and tasted divine. We could not decide which was our favourite dish of the night. Next time we are in Adelaide we will be back.
