Dear customers,

We are so excited to reopen our doors and we can't wait to celebrate with you! You can rest assured that we are doing our best to adhere to the government guidelines for hospitality venues and we would like all our patrons to be aware of some changes.
Please be aware that it is a very trying time for us.

Service will not be what you have known and we appreciate your patience during this time. Please consider these changes we have implemented to keep our guests and staff safe.

We will have a reduced menu during this period. All our food offering is currently made by Santoni pizzeria- due massive demand on their kitchen please be aware that we have been experiencing very large wait times on all food.

We have just made the Spritz Garden available for bookings however please note that this area is only open until 11pm.

We hope to see you soon,

The Kilburn team

Very accommodating . But food came from across Santoni - but was avg . The lamb pizza had 3 pieces of lamb on it . The fungi pizza and popcorn chicken was amazing . Calamari was avg. but the price for an entree size is $35. That was ridiculous

We only ordered beverages and we waited for almost an hour and it still didn’t come. I even asked for a follow up yet it still didn’t come. Considering they served other customers 2 rounds of drinks already when we arrived earlier than them. This also happened the last time we were here, we waited 45 minutes just for the drinks. I’m really disappointed and dissatisfied with your service. I understand your busy but I wish you would be more fair and actually look after your customers.

They didn't have the wine we wanted which was on the menu, so they offered us a different one, but to the vale of $35 more and said we had to pay the extra amount to which we said no, then to be offered another bottle that was also $15 more than what we wanted to pay again. The service was very very poor, in 2 hrs we were only asked twice if we wanted a drink and drinks took more than 20 minutes to come both times.

We ordered chips and a two pizzas except one of the pizzas took so long to arrive that we had to leave to get to a movie we we’re seeing so had to have the pizza put in a box to take home. The cocktails weren’t very good either - the espresso martini seemed very watered down.

On this occasion we held a function for 10 friends. With the new COVID rules we found they struggled with service. Very slow in getting drinks and food. We were also told when we got there that our time was limited to 2hrs. This was not mentioned at the time of booking either.

More of a bar than a restaurant and the pizza came from Santoni across the road, it was tasty though. The lady that served me was really nice and accommodating for my group.

We ordered a few of the Sunday special cocktails and shared a pizza and some cheese. The staff were friendly and made good drink suggestions. Will be back :)

We booked through open table, and on arrival were told. nothing reserved , "we don't coordinate messages sent though online bookings"? We found a seat anyway. The food we ordered took forever and seemed to arrive from across the road, it apraeared "they" were busy and we were low priority. We proceeded to put a tab on the bar and ordered a steady flow of high end whisky and gin. One drink was acidently knocked over and spilt on the bar mid service before the first sip. There was no acknowledgement of 20 bucks down the drain or attempt at replacing??? There was no cloth forthcoming to wipe down the bar and stop the sticky substance falling onto seats and floor! Eventually it was wiped up and we ordered a replacement with no comment from behind the bar. We continued on until 11:30 and clocked up and Paid Tab for nearly $1000 Bill. No good old customer service or friendly conversations as to whether we had a good time. This experience reminded me that having good staff, who are polite and engaging, enhance the customer experience and make you want to return.

I would like to apologize that the customer service you received on the night was not satisfactory. I would also like to offer you a replacement drink for the one that was knocked over , if you do decide to visit our venue again. You are correct, the hot food we serve comes from Santoni Restaurant across the road, I am sorry the wait time was longer than expected. Please email andy@thekilburn.comau if you plan on visiting us again.
