Great food overall. The entrees a little bit too small in quantity and probably more choices need to be add on the menu. Main was great. Their sourdough warm and crunchy was the star of the night for me and I would like to learn how they prepare it. Really good.

Was relaxed and service is excellent. I love how the seating means it feels intimate but you’re not jammed on top of anyone else and nearly every table has a view of that beautiful room.

Great food, nice atmosphere, good wine list, and great service. I was usually find it interesting to discuss with the Sommelier about different bottles of wine and what would match the food. She was friendly but she wasn't able to tell me much about a couple of Burgundy producers on the list that I had not previously tried. I would still go back as I enjoyed the bottle I chose.

The staff were very welcoming upon entering the restaurant. Requested for a change of table near the kitchen, the waiter was accommodating and managed to get one although our reservation was last minute (booked 2hrs before dining).
Ambience is relaxed and food is always exceptional. Service is excellent. Wine selection is outstanding (sommelier is happy to recommend great wines).
Thank you Cutler & Co for an amazing evening.

Excellent restaurant. Great food. Great service. Great ambience. My wife and I shared Sydney rock oysters which were delicious. She had Loin of veal, which was cooked to perfection. I had suckling pig. We shared pineapple, coconut meringue for desert. We were not rushed no it will be crowded into a dining room full of other diners. Tables are well spaced.

The food was wonderful. We hade the chefs 7 course selection and it was superb with wonderfully subtle tastes. The main course servings are substantial, so be suitably prepared. The staff were all attentive with just the right amount of contact and help. Antoine was friendly and helpful with the food and wine choice. He added to the enjoyment of the evening. The restaurant deserves its reputation.

Best meal we ate in Melbourne. Fun service! Upon arrival I was concerned the place took itself too seriously but they quickly lightened up. Especially personable was an Italian food runner who smiled non-stop all evening. The flavored butter was addictive and our entrees and mains were excellent. Thank you for an amazing meal! We will return when we come to Melbourne again!

Everything was excellent - from the service to the food to the ambience. Staff went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and were more than happy to cater to some specific dietary requirements. We had the set 3 course lunch menu with wine pairings. The food was plentiful and it was great value. Would dine again in a heartbeat.

Something has gone missing at C&C. This was one of our favourite places in Australia to dine, particularly for a special occasion as it was such good all round quality. But this visit want the case- the menu seemed tired and options were too limited. The zucchini flower was nice but not memorable. Our rib eye was cooked nicely, but it was standard. And the pineapple dessert was very underwhelming. The staff looked intensely under pressure and were distracted by the focus on their own performance. We felt like intruders. Our table was small and placed in the middle of a busy walk through space- It was like being in a cafe. It was noisy, which I don’t mind, but the music was all over the place and distracting. We selected C&C for our Christmas date night, as we did last 2 years. But very sadly I don’t think this tradition will continue.

This is the second time we have been to C&C and it hasn't disapointed both times.
The food is amazing and the wine pairing is spot on.
It's got a New York loft feel with great ambience.

Incredible service from start to finish. After arriving 45 minutes late we were assured that we had all night on the table and could take our time and enjoy. Fantastic food, drink, atmosphere but it was the staff that were genuinely invested in us having a great experience that really set Cutler and Co apart from others like it. Thank you to all!
