Australian
Our mission at Flinders Lane Kitchen & Bar is to bring a taste of our home country of Australia to the USA and offer one of the best CT restaurant experiences to our local community loaded with the service and flavor but without the pretense of a fine dining establishment.

Our dining room and bar is perfect for a date night with your significant other, anniversary, a casual night out with friends, work dinner, the solo corporate traveller in town for business or a quick bite before grabbing a show at the movie theatre next door. Quiet enough to carry on a conversation and with enough atmosphere to keep it fun and engaging there’s something to suit everybody. From couples to large groups we cater to everyone. We want you to feel like family the minute you walk through our doors!

When we opened our doors in 2017 we had the honor of being voted best restaurant Stamford in the annual Gold Coast awards by our locals which was very humbling.

    Sat at the bar. Ross was fantastic. Great ambience and energy. Chef even came over to talk to us and offered to change up an appetizer for a food allergy. Very personable. Both food and drinks were outstanding. Will be back very soon.

    The manager was hands-ons. The host/waiter was too busy . Semi-attentive. Kitchen needs to pay more attention to the cleanliness and quality of utensils, glasses and plates. They need to replace not so clean drinking glasses for both water and cocktails. Our host took care of this issue and did not charge me for the drink. That was nice. Customer retention is important. Try their salmon and mushroom arancini. And their blood orange sorbet. These are their good items in their menu. Skip the tropical mule- you’re paying way too much for pineapple juice. No trace of alcohol at all, at least on mine. The tables are much too close to each other giving one no wiggle room without worrying about hitting or toppling those drinks and food. Ambiance is decent. Good interior set up.

    My partner and I like to go out and try new restaurants regularly. This weekend we went to Flinders Lane Kitchen and Bar, however, this will be the first and last time we will be going to this restaurant. The main problem was the food. We had the Seafood Linguine as our main course. I would avoid this item at all costs. It has a lack of flavor (no lemon or chili flavor), overcooked shrimp and crab meat, and is presented with a majority of unopen mussels. Additionally, the chef must have tossed the pasta with the mussels leaving the pasta covered in large broken-off chunks of shells. May your teeth be speared unlike ours.

    The staff and management are excellent. The food is good. However, there is nothing obviously Australian about this restaurant besides 3 or 4 food items on the menu. They should market themselves as an upscale American restaurant. Parking is horrific.

    Beautiful venue, easy garage parking, good cocktails, live music and energetic crowd. Now that we have set the scene, let’s talk about the food. Decent menu, some aussieness to it, appetizers are fairly big and remains are decent. Love the fact that they have two sizes for their gnocchi and pasta dishes. Best part was the sticky date pudding. Transporter me back to Australia. There weren’t many vegetarian options and almost zero vegan options. They really should add some veggie pasties and pies to the menu.

    Had high hopes. Food was just ok. . I think they try but it’s overpriced for what it is. meat pies just mushy. Chicken sandwich was dry. Mussels was huge and many may like that but was not what I’m used to. The lamb cavatelli. was very spicy

    We had a wonderful evening at Flinders Lane. Although they were understaffed, like every restaurant, their service, overall timing, quality of food and engagement was GREAT! It was clear they have great teamwork, support each other and thus a great overall experience. The tuna tartare, brussel sprouts, and mushroom gnocchi were all spot on, the cocktails were good and you can't miss on one of the draft beers. You will not be disappointed!

    The food was good and the menu offerings included interesting combinations and pairings. The menu provided a good variety that would please many palettes. Unfortunately, the restaurant had run out of a number of items (we ate on a Sunday evening) and the bar did not carry our favorite liquor brands. Surprisingly (not in a good way) they also put olives with pits in my martini. Finally, the space is a bit narrow which placed the tables too close together and made it difficult for the servers to move about without disturbing the diners.
