    Harvey’s maximises on its James Street spot. Portions are not large. Vegetarian and piscetarians are not overly well served. Staff were great though and very attentive.

    Had a booking. Host didn’t have a table reserved and wanted us to sit outside. Had a sassy attitude towards us. Poor communication when trying to find a table for us. For the price of the food etc not worth it.

    Had a lovely brunch with girlfriends, the food was lovely, but I think the service could have been better. Had to ask for coffee twice after 30 mins from order. The writers don’t have a smile when serving, it is always nice to have a friendly waiter to look after you. But I always live Harvey’s!

    Harvey’s has been serving up reliable staples for years. Food quality and service is consistently good however it would seem the menu has also stayed the same for years. It would be lovely to see them venture into a rotating menu/specials.

    We were there for a special occasion Birthday lunch only 4 of us. We had a late booking 2pm, service was poor to ordinary and we purchased a lovely bottle of Pol Roger (as a treat) and the waitress didn't open right and it came bubbling out of the top of the bottle. She did offer to open another bottle and we said how much has split and she said only a little. We also ordered meals and asked for a bowl of chips to come out first, she said she'd ask, but nothing and the chips came out after the meals. We were then advised a few times the kitchen was closing. Unfortunate we had to have the booking so late, but really came away disappointed in the overall service.

    It was very busy but really tasty! I got the pancakes and my partner got the potato rosti with a side of sausage. His was pretty small so he was hungry after whereas mine was huge! His plate was 24 bucks so a bit pricey for how small it was. Overall good though

    My wife and I have been going to this restaurant for many years and everyone knows us and always greets us. The business lunch yesterday went very well and our clients from Sydney were very impressed. Apart from their excellent food options they have the best Merlo coffee.
