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.

    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.

    I did not like paying in advance. Particularly I did not like paying in advance for a very ordinary restaurant on a Tuesday night of no significance. Not sure if I will be double billed as i preserved wit one card and paid with another.

    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.

    I ordered the Steak which was $30-35 can't remember the exact total on the steak, but it was very moist but had no seasoning no salt no pepper just steak sauce. I ordered from the bar something call tropical drink that had pineapple and ginger. But I must say that the steamed dumplings were my favorite, but there's a lot of garnish so if you don't like green onions on lemongrass don't eat it.

    Accommodated our last minute addition of an extra person. Attentive team all working together including multiple waiters, runners and host. Never had to wait or look for staff. Everyone works together, Even the bartender came to our table to check on how we liked our drinks. Sausage rolls are must try. Two people got burgers and no complaints. Lamb cavatelli was delicious. Drinks were well crafted. Space was a little tight but overall comfortable.

    I do like the ambience and most of the food was very good. My kale salad, however, was overdressed and had way too much avocado in it so it was mushy…never thought I’d say kale and mushy in the same sentence! I would definitely go back because there were some very yummy sounding items on the menu I want to try. The sausage rolls, burrata with truffle and the meat pie were all very good.

    Just incredible. The food, the service, the wine (cocktails looked interesting too, but we had wine). The wine list was nicely curated, with picks from Australia of course but other countries as well--and wines that were not 'well-known'/easily found (which is a good thing!!). The owner came to our table as well to inquire how things were--which is always appreciated and important! Definitely coming back soon.
