Dined here Saturday night, entree which was just bread and dips took about 40 minutes to come out. Ordered the eye fillet with honey carrots, beans and mash. Carrots and beans not cooked properly and no honey to be found on carrots. The steak had no flavour and really the "jus" tasted like gravy with onions. My husband who loves... More

My partner and I visited Table 51 on Saturday night for a romantic dinner. The staff were very welcoming upon our arrival and were prompt with service and helpful throughout the night. Our food was exactly what was stated on the menu with no faults. The damper was HUGE but I loved it. I highly recommend Table 51.

Our experience was extremely disappointing. Don't get me wrong the food was fantastic! However the wait staff were very "casual". It took 15mins from the time we got the bill to the time we paid. They never came back to our table to collect the bill we ended up getting annoyed by their ignorance and walking up to the till... More

We got the place recommended to us. We ordered the grilled barra with chips $34+ it was such a rip off. Thinking the chips would have something special about the they were just oven chips fish was really good. Moroccan lamb sounded good but was over cooked and had no taste. Really not worth the price

Went there last Sunday night. Asked if we could be sat inside because we thought it might be a bit cooler. I think aircon was just turned on. We were the only diners inside. Hardly anyone was outside either. I tried ordering the bugs but was told they didn't catch any. So I had to settled for chicken Alaska. The... More

Has the restaurant changed hands? I've been going here for 4yrs and never been disappointed but tonight was one of the worst meals I've had from here. My duck was tough, burnt around the edges and was the size of 1/2 a duckling not a duck. We always order a side of chips because they're second to none, hand cut,... More

As readers will note, TA reviewers give 'chalk & cheese' reports on their experience of Table 51. Recent reviews range from being "Underwhelmed " (RustyEpic – 18th August) to "Truly Excellent" (maggie 1 – 17 July 2013) back to " Very dissapointing " (Elaine C – 10 July 2013). Why the great variation, you may ask ? My guess is... More

First of all the first door you come to is 3 tables away from the booking desk, so the head waiter more or less called across the room to tell us to come in and that they would find our table. I watched several others do the same thing. THEN, we had our water poured without even asking us if... More

After reading some good reviews I thought on a special family reunion we would try Table 51 as our usual fav place was closed for kitchen renovation. Very muddled service, staff didn't seem to know who was doing what. Slow service in drinks and taking orders. A 45min wait for mains, good size portions but eye fillet was over done,... More
