    Price of the salad for the hat was in it was over priced. Tiny bit of feta and olives with leaves. Very average.

    Greeting was lacklustre but service okay. Venue is tired and despite efforts to add soundproofing, still way too loud for us to play our game in comfort once it got busy. The food came quickly and was very tasty. Selection of games pretty good, not as comprehensive as other games cafes we have visited so maybe call ahead if you have a particular game in mind.

    The staff at Guild made sure that we were enjoying the night. I booked a table at the restaurant to celebrate my birthday and was surprised by the staff with a candle on my dessert. 100/10 Guild never fails to surprise

    Guild is my favourite restaurant in Canberra. The service is always friendly. The wood-fired pizzas are great. The drink selection, for kids and adults, is excellent. And what other restaurant can you choose from a library of boardgames - and get people to explain how they are played?

    Interesting vibe with board games if that interests you; lovely staff and great for a quick bit before going to the theatre. Lots of pizza options plus other choices but pizzas were average - good single serve size but tomato base nothing special and one of our party had an over-cooked base.

    The place is amazing! My partner and I felt very taken care of when the servers were adamant to save our table for us. Our custom pizzas were absolutely delicious, the Twister cocktails and Lavender Collins jug were very tasty and the sticky date pudding was heavenly. Service was great, the vibe of the place was great, and the games options were varied and quite interesting. My partner and I get anxiety very easily but we felt very good and had a great night. We will definitely be back and I would recommend this place to anyone, even if you don't want to play board games. It's got great pizzas, great drinks, great desserts and a lovely vibe.

    Welcomed at the front door with a beautiful smile. Staff extremely friendly with us as well as their colleagues. I have a strong belief that it is a great place to work. We ordered pizzas and they were absolutely delicious. We ordered large as we wanted to take some home for lunch the next day oops that didn’t happen

    We arrived at Guild for our booking. When they showed us our table, we requested something that had a bit more room between tables (they had people seated about 1m apart from each other) I have a compromised immune system, so we asked to change our table. We were told that there was nowhere else for us and that was the only table free (it was infact only half full) The staff member was extremely rude to us. Due to this we left, and probably wouldn't go back. We were celebrating an anniversary, so that wasn't the best experience ever.

    We ate at Guild before a show and so had to be out by a particular time. Overall it was a good experience however they were definitely short staffed and so we had to wait longer than we had hope which was a bit stressful. Only negative was two pizzas which came to us with very little cheese - they were Margherita pizzas so little cheese is basically just a tomato base, when cut there were some slices without any cheese on them at all. If we were not short of time I would have sent them back. To be fair the pizza maker was running it solo and very busy so it was not her fault as much as an issue with the overall lack of helpers. The pasta, chicken and seafood dishes we had were very good.

    Went for our anniversary dinner and had a great night. The food was fantastic, drinks were great and the owmers stopped by to say hi and checked in with us throughout the course of our meal and games. There is a great range of games on offer. We were running late for our reservation but called ahead to let them know and they were wonderfully understanding. We will definitely be back many times.

    Great central location and atmosphere with the games. Unfortunately the pizzas aren’t worth the money, little to no toppings on a good size base. Not worth the money considering there’s more toppings on a $5 Dominoes pizza. The atmosphere and location deserves a better value for money pizza

    A great concept where you play board games over dinner. They have thought through the little details (eg the two circles on the menu are the actual two sizes of pizzas). Everyone at every table was engrossed in conversation and game play … not a mobile phone to be seen (except for photo taking). Great night out for the family or for a group of friends.

    Our third attempt with this restaurant. This time one pizza arrived and was finished before my husband received his. Then they tried to charge for playing one of their board games after we were already leaving just paying for the one pizza. Bad service and coordination.
