The Lab never fails to impress us with it's refined service and the friendliness of the staff. We visited for a double graduation celebration and the effort that was made to make the night special was very much appreciated. Whilst the food is reasonably expensive for most people it is very very good. Certainly the wine list has a good... More

We ate here a few weeks ago and it was very good. We have eaten at the Lab Bar every year for 7 years and it's always a treat. We always enjoy the old building, the friendly staff and the white table clothes for a special occasion. We were disappointed in the desserts however, this time. They were cold and... More

had dinner here and thought the food was good but probably not worth the cost - waited quite a while before I was noticed to be given a table - staff should be encouraged to acknowledge you are there even if they can't get to you straight away - once I was seated the waiter was way too attentive -...

My family dined here on Friday night. The service was fantastic, the waitress was very friendly. The meals although not cheap are very very good. My husband and son shared the 850g Rib Eye to which they said was one of the best they have eaten, it was cooked to perfection. We all had entree's and mains, no room for... More

Our experience tonight was dismal to say the least. We waited 45 mins for our entrees…I had 6 natural oysters…go figure. The men at my table ordered steaks…way, way overcooked. It took the waitress 35 mins to come back to them and tell them that their steaks could be re cooked. They were so starving that they had to eat... More

We celebrated our daughter's marriage with a small dinner at this delightful restaurant and thoroughly recommend it. The service was very good and the food was delicious. The mango sorbet was devine. The menu caters for all. It was a special occasion and we were presented with a beautiful platter of complimentary chocolates. When you leave the restuarant, have a... More

Soooo disappointed! Bad service, every course had a problem with the food, wrong cutlery (and mismatched) supplied for the courses, incorrect wine glasses supplied for red & white wine. Feed back was given at end of meal but we are sure nothing will have been acted upon. Staff lacked direction & appeared to have little training or understanding of their... More

Dinner started with a very warm welcome from our very attentive waitress. The food was amazing and we enjoyed the special little touches like fresh baked bread and sorbet between courses. For a special treat we were given complimentary chocolates to celebrate the night. Menu was a little different and we will definitely be going again!

Excellent Food, from the beginning to the end... Excellent service as well. Pork and Duck entrees were amazing, the lamb and steak mains were so full of flavour and the cheesecake dessert was exceptional. The Wait and drink staff were very atentative... there is only one thing we would change... the guy on the door, who was American (we think)... More
