I caught up with a friend at Long Room for few drinks and bite to eat on a Wednesday night and had a great time. Service is really friendly and attentive, we arrived at 6 pm and left around 10, my only quibble is that later it got seemed hard to get wait staff to table for order as fewer... More

I was halfway through drinking my $10 drink when a waiter took it away while I wasn't looking. He filled it with rubbish before I had a chance to tell him that I wasn't finished and when I informed him that I wasn't finished he was completely unapologetic and simply laughed and walked away, didn't even offer to replace my...

Their $29.50 all you can eat tapas and $5 beer or wine and $10 cocktail happy hours are great. Food is very good quality , the pork belly being the standout. Go early as it gets packed, but it's packed for a reason, it's good.

Went here for pre-theater food & drinks the other night. What can I say but have found the perfect place to meet friends before a show. The All You Can Eat Tapas for $29.. well.. say no more. It was by far some of the best tasting tapas in Melbourne and a really terrific selection. To top it all off... More

I went for a pre show dinner at the Long Room last week. We booked so we were given a free drink on arrival! We had the $29 All you can eat Tapas. There is a large range of tapas options, all were pretty delicious. The apple and prawn salad and the pork belly were the winners in my option.... More

On a Saturday night my friend (Indian male) and I (Asian male) were denied entry into the Long Room. We were very well dressed (easily exceed the dress code), and perfectly sober. The reason given was that there was a function at the time and only certain guests are allowed. After some subsequent observation we were convinced that this was... More

Thank you for your review @mzalbatross. I'm sorry that Saturday evening wasn't as you had hoped. As mentioned in your review, due to how busy the venue was over the weekend we did have to limit entry to guests who were attending functions or who had registered a guest list. We recommend that all guests attending the venue later on... More

We got their 29 all you can eat tapas and they were actually pretty darn good! The jug of sangria was massive and we couldnt finish it between... More

A trendy lounge and bar, perfect for drinks and dancing. G&T's were $10 which was very reasonable considering the location. Good, fun music and plenty of lounges for tired feet. It was a busy night so there was a small wait for drinks. The venue is clean and vibrant with a demographic of mid 20's to late 30's. The venue... More
