    The Sake Restaurant and Bar Flinders Lane was excellent in all respects including really good cocktails and patience with us in changing our booking three times due to our party numbers changing over 24 hours.

    The food was great but the quantity was so small and very expensive. I wouldn’t mind paying a lot if there was enough food in one dish. Otherwise the quality of the food was great.

    From the very first mouthful we were all commenting how amazing the food was. The cocktails that our waitress recommended were all really nice. Everything was cooked to perfection with very moorish flavours and beautifully presented.

    Disappointing - very expensive for poor food and a terrible experience sitting at the bar with constant interruption from staff. - We asked for input on how much to order - were told to order about 3-4 dishes too many - We ordered cocktails - we got the wrong ones - Food was average -- nothing truly special - We booked for a romantic dinner for our anniversary - was seated at the bar with my husband constantly being poked by a plant. The bar was loud and staff felt compelled to keep interrupting our conversation with comments like "ooh thats my favourite dish here etc" Memorable for all the wrong reasons - glad we had booked somewhere else for dessert to end the evening on a higher note.

    good food and cocktails, but the cocktails took a while to arrive and the food was served in disorderly fashion. The sashimi arrived last and the yakitori and main dishes we ordered first, which was very confusing. It made for an uncertain dining experience as we were wondering if dishes had been forgotten. Service a little haphazard. Given the price of the meal, we did expect better.

    I thought the meals were very small.. And a bit too tricky for Japanese food. The music was very loud and the service was mixed. Some waiters excellent- others not as good. The pricing was very high.

    Disappointing. Understanding that it was different to the SAKE near Hamer Hall, we were still expecting a spectacular dining experience. We were guided by service staff to select the $95 chef selected menu and while they took account of food preferences, the overall experience was less than satisfactory for the price. In lieu of a meat dish two diners in our party were provided a large sauted hunk of leek that you couldn't even eat with a knife and fork, never mind chop sticks. Although it was replaced by a nice alternative which happened to be the dish of the evening, it didn't make up for the ordinary dishes that made up the rest of the dinner. Beware that the wine is upmarket and seriously overpriced.
