The food was excellent, quite an experience cooking your own food at the table. My only complaint was that there were no white wines available by the bottle, only red. Service was good.
Beautiful food and excellent service. Cooking your own steak on the stone is a novel experience too. Very quiet, which is surprising. I highly recommend it.
Lovely steak, nice atmosphere. Modern and sheek. The only criticism and its a very small one. The menu is a little limited. with only porterhouse and eye fillet options. But hey not complaining.
Thought it was great but wasn’t told it was a set menu which wasn’t great seeing one off us doesn’t eat seafood not sure if we would be back
Very quiet for a Saturday night, only one other couple was in the restaurant. The steak was nice, as were the tiger prawns. The rating is more for the service than the food. The food came out at unusual intervals. We ordered 2 mains, and 3 sides (greek salad, fries, and tiger prawns). Maybe it's me, but I have always been under the impression that sides came out with the main, but we had the fries come out, then 10 mins later, the tiger prawns came out, then 10 mins later we were asked if we wanted our mains (we said yes), then 15 mins after our mains the salad came out. Additionally, we ordered some cherry tomatoes which never came out at all (they were not on the bill either, so they must have just forgotten). My wife also ordered a diet coke, which we coke, but when we asked a second waiter for another diet coke, we were told, 'We only have Coke Zero, which is the same thing.' Um....no it's not. Also, please get some new music, 3 Akon songs playing on loop is quite tedious. This has the opportunity to be a very good restaurant, stone grill is a novel idea that hasn't really been picked up in Melbourne, and the steaks are good, but until they sort out the service, I believe they will flounder.
Food was great, however they seem to have the bare minimum of stock and staff. One poor girl working the floor where she was good but when there were 3 tables, a bit of a struggle and slow. Ordered 2 items and both were not available. Should not happen for a menu item at 6.30pm on a thursday night even if it is quieter. Otherwise food was nice..
Lovely food but often running out of meats and things on the menu. Service used to be great but is now average. Hoping it improves because the food is lovely. Kids love it
The grill was quite good, however the service was terrible. When I tried to order desert the waitress first told there were only two choices so I picked one. She then came back and told me: "no deserts tonight". I then ordered a coffee and was told there was no coffee either. I found that quite bizarre!
Delicious food. Simple presentation, full of flavour. Good range of wines, though dessert list presented wasn't reflected in availability! Would be happy to return again.
Food good loved the hot grill Service good staff very young could do with a bit of experience.Decor was good but restaurant was very cold
