I booked a table for 2 for 7:15 on a Friday evening. We turned up on time and were asked to go to the bar whilst they sorted our table. There were a number of empty tables for two available and other couples who arrived after were shown to them. At 7:50 we were still waiting without menus and I... More

My customer had recommended this place to have dinner at the celebration of the signing of a two year deal. We decided to book early and when I arrived I was ushered into the bar - was looking forward to the meal and thought the start was great. The restaurant filled up quickly and although my party had arrived we... More

Returned and managed to have 2 good experiences but then tonight it was the worst restaurant experience I have ever had in my life!

There are not too many restaurants in the city CBD that serve up a menu that will be as appealing to the business community. Beef or seafood is the theme but for most business people that is perceived as being of interest. The food is more expensive and reflects the standard that is being achieved by the restaurant.

Visited on a quiet Sunday night. Friendly service and lovely tasty steaks and fish. However 2 mistakes were made with order and service was a bit disjointed . Thus a good experience became average.

Great staff and service as well. Very extensive wine list as well. There are many alternate selections on the... More
