Thoroughly enjoyed our whole eating experience, from the friendly staff to the convivial atmosphere. Sharing was encouraged rather than being frowned upon. The mains were healthy and tasty whilst the desserts were divine. We will be taking friends along next time.

Went to Taxi Kitchen for the first time last night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food was delicious! For entree we had beef croquettes and steamed buns with hickory and salmon. Both were really yummy and very tasty. I had the pan fried gnocchi with lamb, mint and feta. It was absolutely delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed this dish, and... More

Not only is this in a fantastic location with great views of Melbourne, but the service and food were impeccable. What I found great about this place was the fact that they encouraged sharing. I went with my parents, we ordered 3 main meals and 2 desserts and because we were sharing everything I came away feeling truly satisfied rather... More

I've been here so many times and never been disappointed. I cant believe that there are some negative views if you love oysters then you must try the oysters on pork skin...just sublime

Taxi kitchen would have to be Melbourne's best culinary experience complete with the best view of the city either at night, or during the day, either at the bar or table. The menu is creative, and cost effective, and designed to share. The plates are generous, and wine list affordable and unique. This continues to be a great experience for... More

Delicious meals, wide range of choices, and a great view to boot. We were on the marble bar for dinner - so, not an individual table - but really, it still felt like our own table. Lovely, helpful service too. Certainly not cheap, but I don't mind paying for quality and quality it is. Definitely recommended.

Just walked in for lunch on Saturday with my family in late August and the food was delicious and the kids's menu just right for the kids. Love the view through as well as the food.

We ordered the tasting menu with the addition of the scallop dish giving us a total of 7 dishes. Every dish was absolutely fantastic with special mention to the scorched oysters and the ocean trout. The expertly balanced flavours and quality ingredients in every dish meant this is a meal we will remember for a long time and is what... More

The dining room is more of a casual setting, with a great location at Federation Square. Four of us dined here and had a lovely meal. I had a Chili, Garlic Prawns dish. Good service and view of the city and river
