    Really enjoyed a couple of delectable small dishes of salt fish croquettes and chicken liver parfait cigars and my husband’s duck was delicious, but unfortunately the lamb I ordered was under seasoned and did not have enough of the sauce, although it was cooked beautifully. We have had 3-4 wonderful dining experiences of late at other restaurants so the timing of this meal against those may be an unfair comparison. The fries were excellent and I had 2 wonderful negronis. A very nice evening.

    Punch Lane Wine Bar & RestaurantResponded on November 21, 2022Thank you for joining us and it sounds like you have been out and about on the town , great to read you loved everything and its unfortunately the lamb was disappointing for you which has been passed onto the kitchen .

    Brilliant early feed last night before our show. I have visited a few times from Tasmania and love Punch Lane. And they were marvellous at accomodating 2 extra in our party at last minute Food delish. Drinks fabulous and ambience in spades ♠️. Cheers

    Wine prices were bordering 4x mark up, the food was really poor for the price you pay. 4 tiny bits of kingfish for $30? Stale cigars (honestly the casing tasted like it had been refrigerated and sat out for days) for $$ and the tiny croquettes, very expensive and not worth it overall. Service and the bowl of chips were the only redeeming features.

    Punch Lane Wine Bar & RestaurantResponded on November 17, 2022The 2019 Pierre Yves Bourgogne you ordered is listed at $210 less GST meaning we keep $190.91, with its high purchase cost I’m not sure how you arrived at a 4 x markup. The salt cod fritters you mentioned are served with caviar. The cigars are made fresh daily, however our sincere apologies given your experience, that is just terrible. You mentioned the service was a redeeming feature so I hope you were able to mention that to the wait staff on the night who should have addressed the issue.

    Cosy wine bar with good ambience, however the food was over priced and the quality under whelming.

    Punch Lane Wine Bar & RestaurantResponded on October 29, 2022We are so disappointed to read your comments about your food experience with us , I can assure you that our produce is from quality purveyors and each kitchen staff member is very capable and passionate about their work, I would even say is the best brigade of chef I have had at Punch Lane ever … but in this case I’m not sure how to even frame that. Thanks for giving us a go and we appreciate that you enjoy the venue.

    The food is first-class, and the selection of dishes is well-considered, superbly cooked, and beautifully presented. The wine list is extensive and there is something on the list for every taste and every budget. This is a wonderful restaurant where you will be welcomed as an old friend everything you stop in. If you have not been to Punch Lane, then treat yourself now.

    Really cool bar and restaurant. I thought the food was really nice - it is not a cheap night out but at the very least it's a restaurant to go to, to spoil yourself or a date night or to eat with a few friends. The wine list in general is good - chardonnay wasn't over chilled when served but the one baffling thing was why have a Riesling by the glass from NSW when there are so many stunning and well-priced Rieslings from Clare, Eden Valley, Watervale etc? Any way that was my only minor gripe that I thought I'd mention. I will 100% dine there again when I'm back in Melbourne.

    Punch Lane Wine Bar & RestaurantResponded on October 24, 2022We appreciate your feedback and look forward to seeing you in the near future when you are looking to treat yourself again :)

    Seated next to some super-loud Sales bros, who liked to use colourful language and questionable topics. Suddenly very cold treatment from female waitstaff. Felt like our table got painted as the origin of the language from the table next door. Expensive place to go, if you're getting ignored ordering a second drink, and waitstaff can barely contain their contempt. As for $$$, inflation has definitely hit, and portion size is laughable. If you're not there for the Chef's Cut, expect sushi-sized pieces and a return to Nouveau Cuisine. Great place if someone else is paying, I suppose.

    Punch Lane Wine Bar & RestaurantResponded on October 18, 2022There are a lot to take in with what you have said and we sincerely apologies with you experiencing cold treatment. As with all business, managing customers can be a challenge. Agree re inflation however Nuno’s food is generous being a Portuguese /Londoner and Punch Lane food is not Nouveau Cuisine.

    The food was wine-matching stuff, better than I remember from here years ago. Sydney Rock Oysters had a mineral edge that matched the stark minerality of our glasses of 1er cru Chablis: yes, that's right, a restaurant that has 1er cru wines by the glass. The duck was special. Not rare as I expected, but juicy and full of flavor. A special trick was a carrot covered with duck confit, so that it looked like another whole piece of duck. Duck done two ways but not over-filling as is often the case. I love when food is clever but based in classic methods, not chemistry experiments. The staff knew how to describe all the wines we asked about. And how to match them with food. Trained and enthusiastic staff, what a rarity these days!

    Punch Lane Wine Bar & RestaurantResponded on October 18, 2022We are thrilled that you enjoyed your Punch Lane time again and especially that your experience of us had moved up a notch, it is so positive to pass this onto the staff that have work so hard in rebuilding after COVID

    The bread was clearly microwaved, which made it tough and either warm or very hot. The charcuterie we could have gone without, was lacking variety flavour. The shoestring fries were overpriced, and felt dense and didn’t have that airy crunch. The beef tartare and kingfish were the highlights.

    Punch Lane Wine Bar & RestaurantResponded on October 3, 2022Thank you for trying us out , we are pleased you enjoyed your beef tartare and kingfish , just to let you know we don't have a microwave on the premises.

    The food was pleasant but overpriced. The venue was very loud. The service was slow and poor. The waiter made many mistakes. We were very disappointed

    Punch Lane Wine Bar & RestaurantResponded on September 30, 2022We are all saddened to read of your review, we believed your group left happy after your dish error was acknowledged and rectified, account discounted, and we believed all we could do on the night was addressed, there were pleasantries all around on your departure. I think the night before an AFL grand final will always have extra energy and the city was abuzz.

    Might just be my favourite restaurant. I've never had a bad experience at Punch Lane or even an experience that was anything short of fabulous. Wonderful food - a great mixture of signature dishes and something new to try. The charcuterie was divine as was the asparagus and goat cheese special. It was all sensational. Lovely service from our waiter - attentive but never hovering and incredibly knowledgeable. We will be back again and again.

    Punch Lane Wine Bar & RestaurantResponded on September 5, 2022Thank-you for your continual support Stacey, it is due to loyal customers like yourself that we are still here 27 years later! We look forward to welcoming you back soon

    A very cold night. We arrived at 5:45pm. We were to stay for an hour for dinner. Our reservation was outside as, when booking, the restaurant was meant to be full. There were tables inside that were free. We asked to move. That request could not be accommodated. The same tables were still free when we left following a quick but cold dinner. (The outside heaters were on but threw out no appreciable heat.)

    Punch Lane Wine Bar & RestaurantResponded on September 5, 2022We are disappointed that you did not enjoy your visit on Friday night. We do allocate 2 hours for reservations for dinner, we were unaware that you only had an hour as this was not communicated in your reservation notes when you booked online. The restaurant was fully booked indoors for 2 sittings on Friday night, we did have several tables that were running late due to MCG traffic. Unfortunately Little Bourke St can be a wind tunnel which can affect the efficiency of our overhead heaters.
