Steakhouse
Meatmaiden is one hell of a steakhouse. Bringing you the best barbecue and grill in Melbourne, our large and energetic basement restaurant and bar and down-to-earth staff make us the perfect CBD venue for intimate dinners, work lunches, special occasions or functions.

We're part steakhouse, part smokehouse - with a unique and eclectic mix of premium steaks and smoked meats. We've been fine-tuning that approach for seven years to bring you the best meat around - dry-ageing select local cuts like O'Connor rib eye, tending the fire to smoke Wagyu brisket over ironbark for 20 hours and pairing with signature dishes like our lobster mac cheese.

Our carefully-curated wine list focuses on some great Australian winemakers, with six taps of craft beer and quirky cocktails completing the line up.

You will find Meatmaiden on Little Collins St - walking distance from Flinders St Station and Parliament Station, the MCG and Rod Laver Arena and entertainment venues s

    Unfortunately ripped shorts, T shirt and caps constitute 'smart casual' these days... Food was ok, though very expensive for what it was. It was very noisy which I'm sure some people like though it was hard to carry out a conversation. Fortunately for others though they spent most of their time on their phones! Service was ok, though quite impersonal - no single waiter / waitress.

    MeatmaidenResponded 1 day agoHi Thomas, Thank you for reaching out and providing us with some feedback. It's unfortunate that the restaurant wasn't too your liking as we do like to play loud music here at Meatmaiden and unfortunately we cannot always control what others wear into our venue. We are glad you thought the service was Ok. There is always 1 section waiter however we have multiple managers supporting the staff on the night which might made it impersonal for you. we shall pass this on to the team. Have a great day

    Really tasty food! Quite a noisy venue so hard to hear wait staff during service. Pretty strict on telling you how much time you have left to free up the table. Overall, nice food but would prefer other places over returning here.

    We ordered the sharing menu Festive Mood, with upgrade to signature Lobster Mac Cheese. What a treat! Absolute favourites: scallops & bbq pork, lobster mac cheese and 20 hour smoked Rangers Valley brisket. Recommend to go there with a good appetite Music a bit too loud

    I loved the experience but my partner said his steak was cold. The waitress seemed distracted and quite stressed and was abrupt with our table at first which we all noticed but as we got chatting to her she seemed to become more engaging. The little booth was lovely and personal as we celebrated my daughter’s engagement. Loved the sides and oysters. And loved the venue, such a hidden gem.

    New experience at MeatMaiden, the venue was great, lots of staff so service was very quick. Food was great A little pricey but was for a special occasion We went for a shared dining experience which is quite filling for 2 people, which did make the main course a struggle. Lovely night out.

    Meatmaiden surpased our expectations. The food was absolutely delicious and tasty and was accompanied by very attentive service. Highlights were entrees (Beef Tartare and Scallops) and main (Eye Fillet w. Bearnaise sauce - OMG). You get what you pay for. We spent $360 AUD for two (2) people and left very satisfied. Kudo to Meatmaiden's reputation and staff. Look forward to returning and highly recommend.

    Booked for 2 people online. Wanted to change to 3 people but the place was fully booked and was offered to sit at bar. Took up the offer because if I cancelled I was going to be charged cancellation fees. That is not fair when the restaurant cannot take another guest in, I get charged for cancellation! Went for Meat Maiden Mood and thought is was over priced for what you get. Meat was good.

    - Great location and atmosphere. - Service started great at the door but lacked throughout the evening. - Our table ordered the Maiden's Mood - it didn't seem to be a good value for money. We weren't told by the waiter what was included when we ordered. - I would think twice before returning and would order something different.

    Food there is great. But, the cauliflower is really burnt rather char. Waiting for the food was really long. at least 30 mins or more just to have a meal eaten in like 10mins or less. I can recommend to my friends or family, but will warn them about the food waiting period.

    The food was definitely amazing. Disappointed on the wagyu, was tough to eat but still delicious. Highly recommend doing shared meals. Standard pricing for a steak place. We came to celebrate my partners birthday but we’re rushed out from our table 2 mins after offering us dessert and were told we had to finish our drinks and dessert at the bar so we did not order dessert and left. Great food but disappointing towards the end due to being rushed out.

    MeatmaidenResponded on October 26, 2022Hi Jenn, Thank you for taking time out of your day to write us a review. The rump cap, being a working cut muscle definitely has got a bit of bite to it but deeper in flavour. Being a Saturday night having a 1.5 hour allocated time there is not much wriggle room with the tables as most tables are rebooked. Sorry you left disappointed. Management has mentioned that your booking has been updated so we can provide you with complimentary dessert next time you come in. have a great day
