Recently had dinner with my wife and another couple, and I have to say from the start that the service was beyond par!! Excellent knowledge of the food and wines, very attentive table staff and always there to move chairs, re-roll napkins etc. We were in the upstairs space, a beautifully appointed restaurant to have dinner. The meal was very... More

We had a wonderful lunch at the grill. From the time you walk in the door, you are almost treated like royalty. The waiters are extremely helpful and respectful. The wine list is extensive and diverse. The food is superb! Would highly recommend!

We often frequent Grossing downstairs which is good value for money if you're looking for great service and delicious Italian food. Their matinee lunch offers are terrific. However, upstairs is a real treat! We recently celebrated our anniversary at Grossing and our meal and experience were perfect. We mentioned our 30 year anniversary at time of booking. The first thing... More

We went to the Grossi Florentino on Saturday (12th July) and I have to say I was a little bit disappointed. Having tried Grossi Grill and loved it, my expectation of Florentino were high. We had a 2 course dinner and for the main I had osso bucco. It wasn't falling of the bone as a should be and the... More

They called this restaurant an institute, and I have to say it is indeed! The food, wine and service was out of this world. We ate at the Wynn Room which was just something else, the restaurant manager was kind enough to show me the main dinning room and where they have painting going back to the early 30’s and... More

I took my best friend to Grossi Florentino's "Grill" restaurant for her birthday this year. She is a massive Guy Grossi fan, and I am a massive delicious food fan, so it was a great choice! The setting was lovely, waiters attentive and well dressed and the food is cooked within sight, which adds some drama and intrigue to the... More

$40 for a two course lunch with wine and coffee at one of the best restaurants in Melbourne has got to be one of the best value meals in the city. The service was top class and the meals were simple but great quality. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to experience a bit of the Melbourne restaurant scene without... More

The food was delicious but overpriced. This could be forgiven if not for the service which could only have been described as abrasive due to the continued hard sell tactics from our waitress. Not an experience I would recommend.

Melbourne friends booked us into this restaurant and we had no idea what to expect. We were greeted at the top of the stairs and shown to our table, and suddenly there were 2 waiters to also greet us and explain the menu. The service, food and wine were exceptional, even though I must say that some of the wines... More

Took advantage of the pre theatre dinner package - 2 course + glass of wine for $40. Was incredibly busy for a Wednesday night - glad we booked! When we were seated we were offered drinks, prior to seeing any menus, which can be a bit overwhelming - as you have know idea of prices etc... We opted to start... More
