Moments of brilliance sounded by a sea of mediocrity. Steak was over cooked only to be told by the staff that it was the way we cook it. I'm sorry but if I order a medium rare steak I don't expect a well done steak to arrive.

My son and daughter in law chose Hare & Grace for their wedding reception and it was a great choice! Canapes and drinks upon arrival were some of the finest in Melbourne. The three course dinner was of exceptional quality polished off with a variety of local and international wines. The waiting staff and restaurant managers were attentive and unobtrusive,... More

went there for business dinner. The food (steaks) was ok, the service friendly. A good, decent restaurant. But even though the restaurant wasn't full (maybe 50%) it took 45 min for our entrees to come. Another 15 minutes after we have finished them the maines came. Would I go there again? Maybe

I had a business lunch there recently. I enjoyed the food there and found the services attentive. This is definitely a restaurant that I would like to visit again. However, I found their bill was full error, e.g. charged us more beverage than we actually had, and charged us for coffee & tea when their lunch special specifically said they... More

When in Melbourne, we decided to have an early dinner here as we had tickets for the Justin Timberlake concert not far from the restaurant. We told a waitress of our plans and she went out of her way to get us a table and made sure other staff knew we did not have that much time. Even though she... More

Don’t get me wrong there is nothing better than a good fry up in a road side café, you know that in most cases the food will be wholesome, plain and inexpensive. When you go to a restaurant and you are presented with entrees at around $20.00 and mains at $35-$45.00 should expect and receive more. I know that thanks... More

Hare and Grace has been a family favourite since June two years ago ( my young cousin"s wedding breakfast - probably the best managed reception I have ever attended). The food is sensational and creative be it in the bar or the dining room for business lunches or nights for just us two (love the scallops in their shells with... More

Walked in without booking on Friday night, the place was busy, but we quickly got a table. I loved the fireplace and music, good ambience. Staff was very professional and friendly, made good recommendations for meal, it was delivered in the reasonable time. Especially enjoyed their creme brûlée.

This is a little gem. You can just have bar food or elect to have a sit down meal. The oysters were superb. The eye fillet delicious. I loved the atmosphere here and could not fault the service. Plenty to choose from eg rabbit, fresh fish. Definitely worth a visit or two.

I agree with the below review. The waiters at hare and grace wouldn't honour the Entertainment Card when I tried to use it last week when I dined here. Their food was absolutely terrible too. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
