Mediterranean
Armenian cuisine is as ancient as the history of Armenia. It reflects the history and geography where Armenians have lived as well as incorporating its outside influences. Various spices, vegetables, meats, fish & fruits combine to create unique flavours and aromas. Opening in late November, 2013 by the crew behind The Black Toro in Glen Waverley, SEZAR is a contemporary Armenian restaurant, bringing a fresh approach on traditional flavours to Melbourne. Our enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff are there to ensure you have an amazing experience guiding you through a new style of food, inventive cocktails and a well thought out wine list. SEZAR does take reservations but we do have tables available for walk-ins and limited seating available at the bar. We look forward to seeing you soon at SEZAR restaurant & bar.

Went on a Sat night for anniversary dinner. The service started off great & the starter and medium size plate were delicious as were our cocktails. As the night went on, our experience fell off a cliff .. the pork main course was average, the waitress told us it was ‘a very small piece of pork’ which it was for the price but it was also very tough & lacked flavour. A glass of wine for dinner took a long time & a second never arrived and we had to ask for it to be taken off the bill. We were glad we had an entertainment book voucher - would only go again if lunch special and stick to small plates, avoiding main dishes!

Great night out with our daughters. It was good to get the tasting menu so we got to try things that we may not have chosen. Lovely waiter who was attentive without being OTT. My hearing is not great so I was pleased to be seated upstairs where I could hear all the conversation. BTW the food was amazing!!

The express lunch was plentiful and of excellent quality. The two courses were generous as was the accompanying glass of wine. Staff attentive and amiable and I would definitely patronise Sezar again.
My one criticism was the high charge for the free-flow sparkling water which at $10 per head I thought excessive as it was not even bottled.

Staff was a bit slow and non descriptive of the food options. The 3 course meal was good- but some food was room temperature, the pork main was very fatty. (Perhaps this is a pork belly) but we had no descriptions- they just dumped it off at the table and left!

Friends advised it was excellent. It was very good, but for the price, I’ll likely try new places.

Great food. Excellent service and ambience. We were 6 adults sharing the tasting menu for dinner. The food just kept on coming. Good idea to be hungry if you're planning to do the same.

Menu is interesting with limited options. I felt the portions are on the small side and one needs a few dishes to be fulfilled. Pickled beetroot was outstanding , beef checks a little underwhelming for my very high expectations.The environment is very good specially sitting by the window and service was nice without intrusiveness. Will be back for the lamb shoulder I reckon

We had the $79 set menu for lunch which was outstanding. All dishes were amazing & a credit to the chef. Service was over & above expectations & the wine & cocktails were the perfect compliment. As usual a perfect choice for any occassion. Highly recommended.

Simply amazingly a gem in Melbourne. Tucked in a small Halley, I would highly recommend it. Food is so tasty. You can choose from small size to large sharing plate, zip a high quality cocktail or glass of wine. And don't forget the dessert plate. The best plate I ever had.Staff are very professional and nothing is too hard to deliver.Well done!

Very delicious food however the quantity is too less for the cost. And the tip option while paying by card is tad bid unfriendly. As it is the price for the dishes are too high. However the service was amazing.

I am in love with this place. The slow cooked lamb shoulder is stunning but be warned it is huge! This restaurant is perfect for group dining and the staff are well informed, lovely and know their produce. A true pleasure to dine at Sezar.

Don't make so many feedback fields mandatory and let people type in their postcode - on a mobile I have to scroll through the suburb list. I actually live in reservoir but I was scrolling for 5 minutes and only got to G. I suspect you're getting a lot of users not completing this feedback form due to so many mandatory questions.

This restaurant was chosen on the basis ofn excellent TripAdvisor score and it did not disappoint. Easy to book online and it was within walking distance to our hotel as we were visiting from NZ. Nice little restaurant with small, medium and large sharing platters which we think is an ideal way to try lots of different morsels. They were beautifully presente, creative, full of flavour, finely executed and delicious.

Rarely is there a menu where i struggle to make a choice due to the amount of appealing dishes. This happened at Sezar.Beautiful range of food. Upon deciding to go for a set/random menu option by letting the Chef decide we were not disappointed.The food was sumptuous and the place had a relaxed vibe which would be good for couples and groups alike. Highly recommended!

The menu and the food they use at this place are brilliant. Highly recommend for a light tappas meal to the buffet option where the chef's pick and choose. You get what you pay for here - zero complaints :)Love the various plate sizes so you can mix and match and try lots of flavours with out feeling overly full.Staff are attentive but in no way over bearing. Will be back again for sure.
