Mediterranean
Armenian cuisine is as ancient as the history of Armenia. It reflects the history and geography where Armenians have lived as well as incorporating its outside influences. Various spices, vegetables, meats, fish & fruits combine to create unique flavours and aromas. Opening in late November, 2013 by the crew behind The Black Toro in Glen Waverley, SEZAR is a contemporary Armenian restaurant, bringing a fresh approach on traditional flavours to Melbourne. Our enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff are there to ensure you have an amazing experience guiding you through a new style of food, inventive cocktails and a well thought out wine list. SEZAR does take reservations but we do have tables available for walk-ins and limited seating available at the bar. We look forward to seeing you soon at SEZAR restaurant & bar.

We had the $79 set menu for lunch which was outstanding. All dishes were amazing & a credit to the chef. Service was over & above expectations & the wine & cocktails were the perfect compliment. As usual a perfect choice for any occassion. Highly recommended.

Simply amazingly a gem in Melbourne. Tucked in a small Halley, I would highly recommend it. Food is so tasty. You can choose from small size to large sharing plate, zip a high quality cocktail or glass of wine. And don't forget the dessert plate. The best plate I ever had.Staff are very professional and nothing is too hard to deliver.Well done!

Very delicious food however the quantity is too less for the cost. And the tip option while paying by card is tad bid unfriendly. As it is the price for the dishes are too high. However the service was amazing.

Don't make so many feedback fields mandatory and let people type in their postcode - on a mobile I have to scroll through the suburb list. I actually live in reservoir but I was scrolling for 5 minutes and only got to G. I suspect you're getting a lot of users not completing this feedback form due to so many mandatory questions.

This restaurant was chosen on the basis ofn excellent TripAdvisor score and it did not disappoint. Easy to book online and it was within walking distance to our hotel as we were visiting from NZ. Nice little restaurant with small, medium and large sharing platters which we think is an ideal way to try lots of different morsels. They were beautifully presente, creative, full of flavour, finely executed and delicious.

Rarely is there a menu where i struggle to make a choice due to the amount of appealing dishes. This happened at Sezar.Beautiful range of food. Upon deciding to go for a set/random menu option by letting the Chef decide we were not disappointed.The food was sumptuous and the place had a relaxed vibe which would be good for couples and groups alike. Highly recommended!

The menu and the food they use at this place are brilliant. Highly recommend for a light tappas meal to the buffet option where the chef's pick and choose. You get what you pay for here - zero complaints :)Love the various plate sizes so you can mix and match and try lots of flavours with out feeling overly full.Staff are attentive but in no way over bearing. Will be back again for sure.

Where do I start?! Everything was AMAZING! The food, service, location, all brilliant. I am from Sydney and am in Melbourne for business and can't believe I have never been to Sezar's before! It has become my new favourite Melbourne restaurant to go to and will definitely be back! Our waitress was amazing and knew exactly what she was talking about and was super friendly.

As it was our first time at Sezar, and not really knowing what to order, we went on the waitress's recommendation of ordering the banquet. It was fantastic with such a variety of delicious and tasty dishes! We left very full and very satisfied!Also, the wait staff were great - very friendly and attentive throughout the course of the night!

I celebrated my birthday at Sezar last night and I was very happy with the experience. The service was the stand out - thanks to all the staff for putting up with my family's terrible sense of humour, you guys were wonderful! We had the banquet with the dessert platter and I would be hard pressed to pick one dish over any of the others. All the food was delicious, fresh and beautifully presented.
