My boyfriend and I made a reservation for Cookie on a Friday night after hearing many raves which all in all exceeded expectations. The atmosphere was great despite being packed and loud which was surprising to have such an attentive waitress. With 3 menus for drinks alone we were over whelmed by choices. I ordered the steamed salmon which was... More

Well excellent if you like chilli. A lot of chilli!!! My plate was not what I ordered - I requested the salmon & broccoli but received salmon & prawn chilli. Whilst it was tasty there was definitely a heavy hand in charge of the chilli distribution. I asked about the broccoli and the waiter admitted there had been a mistake... More

Very busy place even on a weeknight. We're lucky to get a table. It's got a real great bar feel to it do just didn't expect food to be great. With a huge menu it was a bit hard to choose but everything we got was pretty good. Best would have to have been the chilli basil beef brisket. If... More

They have a great beer selection with knowledgable and helpful staff. Stopped by in the afternoon for a drink, was surprised by the helpfulness and the awesome vibe. Well worth a stop for anyone who likes craft beer. Had a couple of appetizers which were good, the shrimp was well seasoned and nicely fried.

I had a business dinner here for 9 people. Fantastic menu. We opted for a banquet to try lots of dishes. More than enough food served for 9. Good wine list & tastes to suit all. Space to sit after dinner for drinks. Roof top bar which had a great atmosphere.

We had such a great night here - the lift was broken so we got a bit of a work out by the end, but the cocktails more than made up for it. The rooftop abr is a hipsters paradise, more beards than you can throw a stick at.

This place was recommended by a Thai friend as his favourite Thai restaurant in Melbourne . You need to reserve or be prepared to wait. When full it is quite busy and orders take some time to come through. Saying that they were worth the wait. The menu is refreshingly different to most thai restaurants and ingredients really quite fresh.... More

I went to Cookie on a random Thursday night with friends. The place was absolutely packed but they went out of their way to find us a table. The staff were super friendly, the food was divine and drinks went down really well. The best part of the night however was the atmosphere, it was eclectic, loud (live DJ), pushed... More

Nice upstairs rooftop venue. Good crowd too. The burgers from the little stall upstairs were fantastic or maybe I was just really hungry. I do remember them being pretty good though!

I met with friends whilst on holiday here and it was a great spot to hangout - very fun, lovely staff, great bar menu and the food was yummy!! Will definitely be back! My only advice is to book a table if you're going at a busy time.
