Unfortunately, chose the wrong meal. Compared to our last visit, this time was disappointing. The Lamb Ragu was particularly average. Virtually no lamb and one piece of lamb fat. The beef short rib was good.

The rosemary, sea salt and olive oil pizza was absolutely delicious, as was the oven baked gnocchi, highly recommend either of those dishes. Unfortunately the pork belly wasn't crispy at all.
One thing I would say, is they need better knives, as they are very blunt and don't cut easily, more like butter knives.
Other than that, the service was good and the food was delicious.

Went for dinner on NYE & it was busy but good atmosphere. My broad bean gnocchi was bland & my partners steak wasn’t seasoned enough. The food did come out pretty fast, so that was good. The dessert was delicious ! We order take away pizza from here & it’s delicious too !

Great food and service. Perhaps food and wine were at a higher than usual price. However cost is more easily accepted when the food is a high quality coupled with exceptional sevice.

Overall nice experience however food is seriously overpriced for what it was. Had the cauliflower steak - $28 for a slice of undercooked cauliflower, with a whole onion and some chips. Dessert was nice, service was good.

We had an amazing waitress who was not pushy to order and was extremely friendly. Our second round of drinks didn’t come and we had to ask but she was apologetic. Food was amazing but don’t timid you have trouble hearing conversation as it was very noisy.

Food was beautiful but main portion size quite small, was still hungry after entree & main. Fantastic restaurant but was seated on a high table with bar stools, if I had of known when booking, would've requested normal height table as it was quite uncomfortable. And my back was against an open door with freezing cold wind blowing in all night, shivered the whole way through dinner even though I was inside the restaurant. Just a bit disappointing considering how much I spent on the meal & drinks.

From the greeting to the service and then the food is completely outstanding. It was busy but lots of staff on who knew what they were doing. All the staff were happy and extremely helpful throughout the night. Nothing was too much trouble and always with a smile. The elf on the shelf was a great surprise for the children as well.

Booked for 6.45pm so we wouldn't have the 90min time limit (as per website and confirmation info) and was told on arrival that we only had until 8pm. Food was very bland and the quantities of the chef's specials was unacceptable for the price paid and also inconsistent even though they were the same meal. When we complained about this to the waiters nothing was done. We were put on a table near the musician setting up which was distracting and also not social distanced. We did not have a good experience overall.

One of the best feeds I’ve had since I can remember. The steak was world class, so tender. Cocktails are always elite and as good or better than the CBD, and the vibe, staff and owners are awesome. It’s hard to get a table for good reason!

Wonderful! The food was amazing, wait staff were so friendly. The pumpkin and rosemary ravioli was so damn good, my partners eye fillet was probably the best steak I've ever tasted. Portions were a modest size so you can definitely fit in dessert (get the panna cotta!). Will definitely be coming back and we'll be bringing friends and family for sure.
