Hi I had my birthday there on the weekend and wasn’t impressed the waiter didn’t speak proper English and was helpful at all during the week we had ordered a donut cake when we checked on that we when got there they said it couldn’t be done for the number we had on the night which was same as the booking so we had to request it again and then it took 30 mins to come out it was a pleasant birthday after this dinner

Enjoyed the quality of food but I thought the dishes were small in portion and even though tasty somewhat overpriced.
Service good, quick and efficient but with only two waiters I felt that there was no time for them to chat to the customer which would have been nice.
Went a few months ago and portions were bigger and customer interaction was excellent.

I love going to your restaurant. I feel that there is not enough selection of the menu though so its a bit limiting.

Service was very good, the waitress that took our orders was attentive and considerate. One of our entrees was unavailable and 2 of our table had to re order mains twice because they had run out of the dishes they wanted. Long wait for mains. No explanation, nothing provided to ameliorate the situation. When our plates were collected our conversation was interrupted and we felt like we were being rushed out. Wont be returning.

This was the worst dining experience. We had a reservation for 2pm, seated at 2.30pm. We were told complimentary pita bread and dips were coming while we waited - this was purely lip service. Our waitress was useless. The pina colada was not a pina colada, it was awful and served in a small martini glass. The pita bread was soggy. The remainder of food was satisfactory but we were ripped off with the banquet and there was no alacarte . We ordered 2 banquet servings but it was seriously only for 1 person. The table next to us ordered 3 servings and got double what we got. We mentioned this to the staff and they just stood there trying to explain like robots. We have never before left a Greek ‘banquet’ hungry. It was appalling service and value. Was the worst Mother’s Day & dining experience.

I took my mum for the Mother's Day Banquet, which was a bargain at $65 for seven courses. Congrats to the kitchen for delivering great quality food on a very, very busy day. While some may have complained at the length of time it took for the courses to come out, we had a lovely time and appreciated the downtime to get ready for more food! The wait staff were friendly and smiley too. All around a great experience.

Mothers day lunch, first sitting. Glass of bubbly on arrival - nice touch. Set menu $65 Food amazing, it just kept coming! Halloumi with honey and grapes sounded bit weird but was soooo delish. Lamb kleftico was to die for.
Service great, wait staff attentive but not annoying. Nice view, only downside bit noisy, had to raise our voices when talking.
Wouldnt deter me from returning though.

Too dark and loud, was uncomfortable at the bar, would prefer to be opposite my partner. Food was good. Service horrible. 2nd round of drinks arrived after we finished main. Finally we couldn't even get an itemized bill. We took desert as take away as the ambience was terrible. It's better during the day, quiet and you can see what you eat, and sit at a table

Food was overpriced and the seafood smelt a bit funny. Waitress didn’t separate entrees from mains so ended up waiting about 45-1hr for all our food to arrive at the same time. Honestly won’t be going back for a while

Always wanted to try it! Service was good and the food even better. We had a banquet for $55 pp, we had Lamb which melted in your mouth and the Oreo dumpling doughnut for dessert was mouthwatering!
A little loud indoors so not great for intimate dining but overall awesome place and would definitely go back again.

Took 30mintues from ordering and our drinks hadn’t arrived! Had to ask for them. Our entree came before drinks. Then it was well over hour and 15 minutes before our mains arrived.
Disappointed. We were only a table of 3

A great little eatery that is very customer focused. From the time we arrived till we departed the great staff lead by Favio were polite and very attentive. The food is quite “meat” heavy but the fish tacos, salad and calamari that we chose were delicious.

Noise level was fine. Not sure what you wanted on previous choice. The question and rating choice was somewhat ambiguous. The restaurant is great....the staff is great...the music level was just right for the level of conversation. Well done.

Exceptional and memorable night out. Food outstanding, cocktails delectable and the staff were knowledgable, approachable and laidback. A special shout out to Fabio who is one of the best waiters in the biz. Let him order for you and you’ll have a cracker of a night out... 5 STARS! We’ll definitely be back and looking forward to trying out more of the extensive menu xxx

As the restaurant has hard surfaces for walls etc. it should be obvious that noise generated by people talking bounces around. If people have to talk over music which was too loud then the effect is that you cannot talk to each other if the group is larger than 2 people.
Our group was 6 people and the effect was that stories were unable to be shared. That is regrettable when the occasion was a special wedding anniversary.
Despite the good food and associated price, I'll choose to eat elsewhere next time and will only recommend with the rider that the music is too loud for a normal conversation.

I attended this restaurant with my partner. I found the food to be very good and the service extremely friendly and energetic. I think that Stav's has the potential to be a great restaurant however we were let down by a couple of things. All of the couple's seating is on stools at a bar that runs around the window. I don't like to sit on a stool and it certainly didn't feel particularly romantic. It was also a really hot day and the sun was beating down on the windows making it unpleasantly hot. The drinks weren't particularly cold, which we really needed on such a hot day. It seems that they are working to cater more to groups, and when full this would be a very noisy venue. I think it could be good fun with a group and wanting to have a bit of a party. Don't recommend for couples though.

I've been here 4 times now with different people. I'm the one that recommends Stavs to the group.
Love the food atmosphere and friendly relaxed service. It is however quite noisy so we had to speak loudly to hear each other....needs more lighting too.

Great Greek food with an Asian twist. Taste bud sensations. The spring rolls absolute standout! Lamb superb and salads all great. Service was good but food came out fast then slowed down to a snails pace? Overall great night. Quite noisy but I suppose adds to the atmosphere in a way. Parking easy so would definitely return.
