    It was Mothers Day and we were surprised to get a booking for that evening... Even more surprised were we to find this level of service, and great food at such short notice... The salmon was perfectly cooked, my partners steak was near perfect. The price was very reasonable, seating comfortable and there was not waiting or fuss. A really enjoyable and satisfying experience. We will be going again!

    All went very well thank you. We all had fish & chips and it wasn’t like the take away meals at cafes. The fish was amazingly fresh and the batter wasn’t greasy at all. Can’t say the same for breakfast though as I couldn’t even cut the bacon and the waiter cut the bread for my toast and it was about 1.5” thick!! I had to put it through the toaster 3 times before the same waiter said the dial for toast should’ve been on 7.. on saying that the eggs were divine.

    Food was tasty but serves were small. Server dripped wine on table and left without comment. She did come back with a cloth to clean up, however it would have been better to explain that's what she was doing. Water glasses were not topped up. For the price, we expected better service. We would probably not go back.

    Enjoyed our meal at Reserve, probably the best fish & chips I've eaten in a while, unfortunately the tart for dessert was a little disappointing as the pastry was quite hard. Good friendly service. Would of liked the side door closed as looking through to stacked tables is not a good look, especially as the refurb is very nice.

    It's a little surprise package with great food, restaurant is a little noisy near the kitchen so I think the management could have been more mindful in our seating. Wait staff were very friendly and always attentive when we asked for something but no customer service. Lastly if you are going to charge mid $30 mains then act like you can deliver the goods. Salt and pepper in paper sachets is unacceptable. Not leaving water on the table is ok but offer it to your guests. This restaurant has a great chef ......whoever you are. But the rest lets you down.

    What a lovely surprise, the outdoor section overlooked beautiful greenery and had a great atmosphere. Caught up with friends for first Friday night out after vic lockdown! Delicious food, one of the best steaks I have had , my friends also inhaled their barramundi and steak sandwich . Great mix of fine dining and causal options. Cocktails were delicious and so was dessert and the cheese platter! Lovely discovery and will definitely be back! Staff are friendly and lovely!

    Staff were friendly. Produce used in the meals was disappointing. Possibly good venue for a drink sitting outdoors, but food is not value for money or appetizing.

    The food was delicious and the entree gave me a chance to try new things like caviar and black pudding. The fish was lovely. So was the wine. The only thing I could fault was that the dessert was delicious but I wanted more! I would have been happy to pay an extra $5-$10 for a little more dessert.
