    I’ve been here many times and this time was very disappointing. The service was not good and the place was nearly empty on a Friday lunchtime. The food has always been very good here but unfortunately the food this time was below par. No outstanding dishes and every thing was either not good or just ok. Will give them another shot but very disappointed this time

    Freezing cold with a cold draft blowing, this is not good to serve food in cold seating conditions (and I wasn’t outside) staff still way too pretentious, there are many eating options locally needs to improve drastically.

    Not enough seafood choices on the menu for a seafood restaurant; Incredibly overpriced for the quality; Very limited menu overall; Very slow but friendly service overall. Incredibly disappointed with this venue, would not recommend to anyone-especially not lovers of seafood!! ☹️

    My wife and I have dined at the Atlantic on several occasions and the experience just gets better and better. We celebrated my wifes birthday recently and the staff went out of their way to make the evening special. Especially our waitress Elizabeth, she was a delight and made our dining experience even more enjoyable. The food was amazing, we will definitely be back.

    Had a 6pm dinner reservation for 2 and ordered within 10 minutes of arrival, was still waiting on our meals at 7:30pm, waiter said it should only be a few more minutes. We waited 10 more minutes and then decided to leave. I’ve never had to wait over an hour and a half for a meal.

    2 people spending over $250 for an average meal... meh. The wagyu croquettes were tasteless. Didn't love the octopus. The oysters were lovely. The $40 something dollar barra fish main was not value for money. The whiting didn't blow us away either. I wouldn't need to go here again for what used to be great food/value.... when it was The Waterfront.

    Went on mothers day for a 2pm set menu sitting . Didn't get out first course until 3.10 ,every other part to our meal was very long in between . Waited 25 mins for dessert. All on a set menu with no alterations other than GF penne pasta. Overall very disappointing as we had an 8 month old with us and had to spend almost 3 hours to finish the meal . Tried to charge us $65 for a baby meal ontop of the $320 excluding drink

    Our first visit back pre Covid, I had read reviews that were not so complimentary so felt a bit concerned. However, it was still as we had remembered- absolutely Wonderful! Service was on point, friendly & charming! Food was amazing as usual. My family & I thoroughly enjoyed our experience yet again! Thank you for making my husbands 50th birthday a memory to treasure! Thank you & see you again soon

    Given the location and name that this facility operates under - the food was just ok ... not outstanding, there are better places to be in Crown for similar prices and even more within Melbourne CBD walking distance. One dish - Raw King Ora Salmon was very good with a nice touch of fennel. What really made this evening a disappointment was the service, staff were really inattentive and not at all friendly. It appeared that they were simply going through the motions. The room also became too cold requiring jackets to be put back on.

    Very noisy restaurant, music was too loud, we felt like we were in a nightclub. The food flavours were nice but the serving size was absolutely ridiculous for the cost, the wine cost was tripled from retail cost which was disgusting.

    Disappointed in the food, they use bottled premade sauces which for a restaurant of this calibre you would think they would have made there own. For someone with allergies they didn't accommodate very much. For the price I expected alot better quality.

    Great service but food could be slightly improved. Octopus entree could have been hotter but was very tasty. Croquettes were amazing. Main Barramundi was overcooked so the fish was dry. Good flavours though. Moreton Bay Bug spaghettini was delicious although slightly heavy on the chilli. Tomato side dish was too cold - tomatoes tasted like they came directly out of the fridge which of course diffuses the tomato flavour. Tomatoes should always be at room temperature.

    We chose the Atlantic for a special celebration dinner which we made clear when booking and again when confirming our reservation. Unfortunately, there was no acknowledgement of that from any of the staff and we felt disappointed that our table was not as good as we had expected or requested. Whilst the food was very good, I do think it is over priced and the music is very LOUD and not in keeping with an up market restaurant or dining experience.

    Overall a nice ambient restaurant with friendly staff however that's where it stopped for us. My husband and I ordered 1 bowl of chips, 1 crayfish, 1 dessert to share and a couple of drinks each, and it was almost $600, and we left hungry. One of the cocktails was tasteless and we couldn't finish it. The crayfish alone was almost $300 and it had hardly any meat on it to keep you full. I can think of many restaurants where you will find beautiful food and wine for half the price. Unfortunately after spending almost $600 we got some takeaway to have back at our room at Crown because we were still hungry. Perhaps we should have ordered some more sides but I am afraid the price would have sky rocketed again. The crayfish had a gorgeous flavour so maybe see for yourself if you like it, but for us we probably wouldn't dine here again due to value for money.

    Was pleasantly surprised by the food and service of The Atlantic, everything was fantastic. Although it was very busy the noise level was not high we could still have a conversation without needing to scream. The food was delicious, we ordered the chefs menu and the portion was huge! An excellent night for a birthday we celebrated.

    Service slow and inattentive. Had the captains table set menu. Two of the dishes were unavailable and replaced with other really poor options. Some dishes were great, however the main course of a whole oven baked flathead arrived under cooked and was raw in the middle and cold. Very disappointing for a seafood specialty restaurant. Underwhelming overpriced and won’t be back.

    We had a family dinner at The Atlantic Restaurant with our 2 adult children and their partners - the service was terrific and the restaurant a lovely environment We all enjoyed our food apart from my husband who had the Moreton Bay Spaghettini - he found his meal quite bland which was a shame. Everyone else enjoyed the food however our sons did find the portions very small! Overall we enjoyed the night and the waitress was lovely

    Food was definitley not worth the money, ordered the kingfish starter and couldn’t taste anything but the seaweed on top. Had Alaskan King Crab for main with chow mein - glorified two minute noodles, not very tasty and definitley not worth $220. Dessert was yum. Servers were lovely but overall really disappointed with a majority of the food.
