    The most unusual menu set up. It was a set menu for 2 or 3 courses, but then you could add on, at a cost, sides, an appetizer or if you wanted a steak. Therefore if you wanted a steak you had to add on the cost (i.e. $40) on top of your meal cost! It was very strange. The drinks cart at the start was great.

    The Point is pretty fancy. It was quiet when we were there, with perhaps 10 other dinners there, I assume that on Fridays and weekends it would be a bit busier and perhaps a bit noisier, but I can't imagine it ever gets too loud in there. The atmosphere is quiet and elegant with views out over Albert Park Lake - once its dark these views aren't as good, but there are still city views to take in. The food was excellent although the menu could probably be described as little limited especially if you aren't into seafood. The desert menu could probably do with an update that doesn't involve just adding weird flavoured sorbet or popping candy to 70's style deserts, but that's a seriously minor niggle and most people would be very happy with the desert selection. The service was mostly excellent except for the fact that we were still waiting to see their extensive wine list when our mains were served. So by the time we'd finally received a wine list and made a decision our mains had gone a little cold. Obviously this was sub-optimal, honestly I probably should have dinged them more than 1 star because it did seriously ruin the whole flow of the evening, however the rest of the service was great so I'm hoping it was a one off oversight and not a regular occurrence.

    Excellent service. Staff were polite, professional and had good knowledgeable of menu. The food was well presented with creativity and attention to detail, and taste was good. Very extensive and quality wine list. The restaurant has lost some of old charm and character (with half dining space now set up as a different restaurant - same owner) and was lacking some atmosphere - some classical piano or light instrumental music would help. Nonetheless we enjoyed our evening. Staff service was really good.

    The Point is a very interesting idea A great location with excellent service and ambiance The selection of food is fantastic and its presentation unbelievable The amount of food left me slightly underdone though my wife was "full". The cost of basic drinks was a little high though expected from a class restaurant The service was very good with the waiting staff being unoticable I would go again but only with a change of menu (something different) Thank you for a different experience
