great place to visit although it can get very noisy on a busy night.
I would have recommended this place from past experiences, unfortunately not after our recent experience. The lamb was dry, the venue music level was bearable even for able hearing adults. There is a difference between ambience and night club. I am sure the music helps the staff enjoy their shift but what about the paying customers trying to have a good catch up.
I had a couple of cancellations in my party and there was no hesitation to move us to a smaller table, the service was very professionally and they were very happy to adjust to my needs.
Very good food excellent service
Beautiful food and service. It was extremely hot weather so there werent many customers (the city was very quiet in general).
We had an enjoyable pre-theatre meal at Trunk. The waitress was very friendly and efficient. She did ask if we were going out and made sure the kitchen was aware we had a deadline.
The food was beautiful. My lamb was fell off the bone, my husband chicken was perfectly cooked.
Our friends’ pizza and risotto was quite enjoyable. Nothing was left.
Would definitely head there again.
We had a fantastic time, the staff were help, the food was lovely and the overall experience was perfect.
We were just meetin friends before going to a show. We were short on time but our pizzas came out in no time at all. They were all delicious and the chef even treated us to some fries as we were waiting for a few minutes extra! Too nice! The service and the ambience was lovely.
Finally!! a normal restaurant with good service. Normal portions, good flavour. You pay what you get. Will come back for sure.
Sehr nettes Restaurant in Melbourne mit guter Küche und freundlichen Service. Musik war etwas laut
Simply awesome !
For a pre theatre meal, Trunk was a great place to eat, with fast and friendly service. The waitress we had was friendly and accommodating and the ambience was good as well. I can highly recommend this place to eat
Everything was perfect! Thank you!
Food was sooo good, cannot fault it. Especially the labne and lamb dip...couldn't get enough. Service was great too. A little loud but I guess it's a bar too so you deal with it.
The food was good and the service was fine, but it was a 39 Degree day and we were put inside where they seemed to have no air-conditioning and no notification or discussion about there being no aircon. the only comment that was made was an apology at the end of the meal by the very nice girl who was our waiter. It would have actually been better to have sat outside where there was some wind. they could have just said 'sorry we are having trouble with the aircon" or something to let us know why it was an oven inside.
The wait staff were extremely friendly and helpful . The food/cocktails were delicious and didn’t take long to come out from the kitchen.
Delightful. Good range of options for all good types. Pleasant staff attentive but not instrusive. The Persian pavlova was beautiful and delicious you must try it.
Great place to meet goo friends and share a meal
We dined in the restaurant (as opposed to the nearby burger area) and the food and service was excellent. It can be a little noisy but there were two large groups nearby which didn't help. You can also sit at the bar and enjoy a cocktail or a beer or wine. A really nice venue. Reasonably priced and good value for the quality of the experience.
Great restaurant with beautiful food, the service was great but the staff hovered over us a little to much, needed more time between courses. Overall a great place for dinner. We will definitely come back.
I was quite disappointed with my recent dining experience at Trunk earlier this week. The lady shared the lunch specials verbally with no prices. I orders the fish and salad special and it was delicious. When we got the bill I was quite surprised when it was $36 (that is not a special) and should have been quoted to me at the time of ordering. There was salmon etc for high 20’s price so I figured it would be around the same if not on the cheaper side. Will think twice about going back there for lunch.
Went there twice for business dinner. Both times we had to wait for a long time before food arrive. Nice dessert and sides. Main was a little let down.
We came for dinner and the food and service to our table was very good. Unfortunately a waiter for a different table continually knocked into the back of one of our chairs (8 times!) after the first few times we requested he please take more care as there was over a metre between us and the nearest table so no need for it to happen, he brushed it off and continued to knock into the chair. Needless to say this was a big negative for our dining experience.
Excellent food and service, will definitely be back and definitely recommend
Prompt and effective service - with a warm and very genuine smile.
a bit noisy, Difficult to have a quiet conversation.
The food was delicious, the service outstanding, however the noise was intolerable. We couldn't speak and be heard to the people next to us and had to shout. This reduced how I could rate the place and I would choose somewhere else next time because of this alone. Recommend some sound/acoustic work.
Thoroughly enjoyed dining here for lunch with a group of work colleagues. All round lovely experience including service, food, atmosphere and delightful interiors.
The service was great and the food was even better!
We dined at Trunk prior to the theatre. The service we received was exceptional and the wait staff guided us on the best meals to come out in the time frame we had which was spot on.
The meals (including vegetarian) were all fantastic with everyone of the 5 dining really impressed with their meals.
I have dined at Trunk on several occasions and always find the food and service to be excellent and can cater for either a pre-theatre dining (as in this case) or a long dinner experience. Simply fa
thanks for another great meal and lunchtime service
This restaurant was a great find! The food was delicious, the service was superb and the wine list was extensive. I can’t wait till I’m next in Melbourne to visit again.
Without a question one of the most underrated restaurants in Melbourne. The Diner has the best salads and comfort food going araound and the restaurant deserves a michelin star.
The food at Trunk is very well prepared and served in a restaurant that clean with a rustic vibe - great for any occasion - we were there for a business meal and got through our discussion and meal without fuss.
Service was quite bad but food tasty if not especially refined.
Family was in town so I decided to show them one of my favourite spots and was yet again, not disappointed! Amazing food, everyone loved it and not overpriced at all. Sam, our waiter was great as well!
Will be back again!!!
There's nothing I don't like about this place. One of my favourite "go to" places when in Melbourne. The food is amazing, the atmosphere always great, the building is really interesting and I just love everything about TRUNK.
Great food, great location, great staff
