I really didn't quite know what was in store So...yes...it was quite an experience!!! Service was exceptional.....the Degustation was very nice....and the wine was excellent.....i'm not a desert person, so could have... More

My feelings towards this restaurant are quite mixed. First and foremost, it is definitely NOT a two hat restaurant. Not even close. The food is quite good, but really not worthy of two hats. But what absolutely lets this restaurant down so significantly are the staff. Every average review on tripadvisor referring to staff is right on the money. Empty... More

Wow! A hidden gem underneath a busy flinders lane. Amazing Japanese inspired oyster shooter and scollops with pumpkin puree for entrée. For mains we had beautiful wagu beef and duck massaman. Highly recommend the tasting plate for dessert. Outstanding service, the experience, food and wine knowledge of the staff was brilliant. Very professional. It was a special occasion for our... More

We booked well in advance for this as our last activity in Melbourne before heading home. I am so glad we did. This is a lovely restaurant and we always intended to do their 8 course tasting menu with matching wines. It is not cheap but given the quality of the food and wine, we were very happy. The wine...

I haven't eaten here for years so it was interesting to go back. Went with a group of friends and we all had the degustation menu and matching wines. First of all, if you decide to go and chose this option make sure you have a couple of hours and an empty stomach. I thought the food was great, the... More

This is a great restaurant hidden below street level in the heart of the city. The food is amazing and drinks list quite extensive. It is a perfect place for that quite, romantic and intimate dinner. We dined as a group of six but there were a lot of couples throughout the restaurant. Another highlight of this beautiful restaurant is... More

Once again recommended by locals who know their food. We did not take the tasting menus as we are not too keen on this format. That nothwithstanding the al a carte offerings were outstanding. Delicious Black Bream ordered by both of us was memorable as were the entrée and dessert. Service was perfect with an engaging Italian waiter who had... More

Ezard is located in a building that was once considered innovative but has not stood the test of time. This is somewhat of a metaphor for the interior and food of the restaurant: the signs of a type of dining experience that have become somewhat dated. The food is fine, and the service excellent but it somehow lacks a contemporary... More

The last time we had dinner at Ezard was in 2006, and I left impressed. This time I was blown away for not only was the dishes and dessert we had excellent, so was the wine, the service, the ambience and the hand wash in the washroom. It's all these little things that made our experience at Ezard so memorable... More
