Hazel is a stylish restaurant with professional staff operating under difficulty with COVID restrictions. The chef’s menu was outstanding. A strong wine list with a knowledgeable sommelier. Only minor quibble is that it was difficult to hear the staff clearly with masks on combined with background noise level.
Really lovely ambience and food. Amazing service and value for money.
Hazel was amazing. The service and the ambiance was excellent. The food was delicious
Delicious food - we went with the chef’s selection. Wine was incredible - really happy with the sommelier’s advice. Amazing service - so friendly and accommodated an extra person with no notice. And, the music selection was awesome. Can’t wait to visit again.
Sometimes it all comes together. And it certainly did for us at Hazel; great food, wine, ambiance, service and value. Look forward to our next sitting! A big thanks to the team at Hazel for a great night.
Love it here every time I go!! Strongly recommended to anyone and everyone
We let our waitress know that we were in no rush and not to send the food too fast (we started off with a glass of champagne and a martini and then ordered a nice bottle of red so wanted to enjoy that), all of our food was out within 30 minutes, so after only being at the table for about 45 minutes our mains had been cleared. We would have ordered cheese/dessert and dessert wine but we had half a bottle of red left and felt so rushed we didn't bother. Our waitress was really lovely but they need to stagger the food - particularly in the second sitting when guests don't have an out by time.
The food and staff were amazing. A really lovely night out.
gluten free bread served cold, butter to match tasted funny.
beside that very good.
Steak tasted and smelled like dog food. Husband didn’t feel great after eating it. The place is beautiful. Pork was dry, artichoke just OK. I’m not picky with my food but it was just below average.
I had my birthday dinner and we were a small group of 4 people. The food was amazing, lovely ambience and excellent service. I highly recommend and give Hazel 5 stars.
Such a beautiful dining experience. The food was delicious and service was amazing!
Excellent experience at Hazel last night. The food was exceptional and staff attentive and friendly. Will recommend to friends and family.
Food was sensational!! Definitely will be going back.
Our birthday lunch group of nine people shared the seven course degustation menu. Everybody was delighted with all courses and the vegetarian in our group (who is a chef) was particularly impressed. The highlights of the menu were the pickled mussels, the awesome house made rye bread with whipped kefir butter, the roasted carrots with sourdough miso and rare beef with charred onion butter. Throw in low key but informed service, a clever fit out in a grand old building and a glass or two of bubbles - what more could you want? Excellent value and highly recommended.
Beautiful interior, incredible food and wonderful service! Can’t wait to go again!
Great ambiance, good service but food is average. There are only 3 items on main being fish, scotch fillet and pork chops. For a $45 scotch fillet which was average in quality, one would expect some veggies or salad on the side, but none. For a special experience maybe, but better value for money elsewhere.
First dining experience at Hazel and it will not be our last. The chef's menu was a great balance of vegetable and meat protein dishes, delivered in a refined but not fussy presentation.
A delicious meal with an emphasis on local produce and fresh ingredients. The fish was perfectly cooked and the charred broccoli with wakame was a stand out. Thanks to the incredible service and fabulous wine list!
lovely food, great service. highly recommend
Loved our evening. It was our anniversary and we were made to feel very special. Jane/Jade (sorry) was very knowledgeable about the food and the wine.
We did the chef's menu and the food started off with a bang. Literal flavor explosions and amazing pairings. We did alter the courses for pork free and maybe that was responsible for some off of the future courses losing their kick.
Overall great experience and move ambiance.
Great food and staff, friendly and helpful with food and wine suggestions. Had the chef's selection, just delicious.
Enjoyed my dinner so much that it inspired me to write a blog. Every bite was an explosion of taste and a culinary discovery of the quality of the raw ingredients. The texture and taste were impressive! I had the oysters to start with a glass of champagne, the croquette , then the grilled broccoli and the fish. Finished with the hunter and gathered dark chocolate tart. Everything was cooked to perfection !! Thank you for a great experience
A great special occasion dining experience in an outstanding venue.
High quality food & excellent service.
We had the tasting menu which was excellent and priced well at $75 for 7 courses. The service was excellent and we had a great night.
Hazel had great food, a warm and inviting atmosphere with great service. The house made halloumi with smoked tomatoes was really delicious!
It's great and friendly service.
Beautiful atmosphere and clean lovely food. Service was fantastic and a very enjoyable evening
Every time I go to Hazel it’s better than the last! Adore this restaurant. 5 stars from me always!
Absolutely amazing, service was impeccable & the rest just followed, highly recommend & will definitely be going back
Excellent Servuce, food, wine, ambiance in a very Melbourne setting - so good to see a vibrant venue again. Congratulations Hazel!
Couldn’t recommend more! Amazing staff and the food is to die for, highly recommended the artichoke and the rhubarb cola cocktail! Kitchen looks amazing the whole building is beautiful. Staff were so informative and lovely.
Great food and atmosphere.
Staffs were very quick to clean plates and drinks as if to rush us off when we’re basically the last seating.
Also waitress blew our surprise birthday plan by wishing the birthday girl a happy birthday. Thanks.
Just a comfortable pleasant environment when having a dinner on your own. Staff are incredibly friendly .
Hazel is my favourite restaurant in Melbourne.
Would not return.
Sad because location, decor and vibe was excellent.
My favourite restaurant in Melbourne!
Will definitely be back!
Hazel is a gorgeous venue with delicious food and friendly staff, who go out of their way to make your experience special.
I took a friend visiting Melbourne so naturally wanted to impress, and she was impressed. Little touches of tasting the wine and NOT removing the plates until the last person has finished eating, the height of bad manners and yet almost every restaurant does it. Not Hazel. Everything was smooth and enjoyable allowing us to sit and talk , because the noise level was low, and not feel rushed.
