Nice and Cosy

I was permanently cold in Melbourne, but it was nice and warm in here. I dined on no notice, with a friend, and enjoyed a yummy lamb pie with properly decent flaky pastry, and a very good lemon meringue individual serve dessert. Pleasant wait staff.

Incredibly disappointing experience. Didn't get half the food we were promised in the $55 menu and after 4 hours of waiting at the table we had to call it a night (or risk falling asleep in our seats) The fact the they sold out of the short rib that we specifically ordered was a huge disappointment, not to mention that...

I ate here during a business trip. I had arrived at the Park View hotel earlier that morning and after a long sleep, I needed to eat and did not have the energy to go out, so I opted for the hotel restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food served. I only had one course, a... More

Woods was open at 7 am on a Saturday and also had a weekend special of $20 per person for the buffet breakfast. Impressed we could squeeze fresh orange juice. Great hot selection although poached eggs were under done. Wish I had thought to ask if they cooked eggs to order. The toaster was very inefficient and I had to... More

Meals are okay, but don't expect anything that's going to blow your mind. I found that the meals were prepared in such a way that they require minimum effort in the kitchen. Goat curry and chicken duo... Nah, shouldn't be on a restaurant menu in its current way or at this price point. The rib eye, salmon, flounder and the... More

Food was good at good value for the prices of the meals. Staff very friendly, some need to serve customers a litte quicker.

Like 100,000 others marking the Centenary of Anzac,I was walking back in the rain from the Dawn Service at the Shrine of Remembrance. It was about 7 a.m. and breakfast was a distant prospect at that hour on a Saturday, since all the restaurants appeared closed on St. Kilda Road. Not so Woods. An 'Anzac Breakfast' was advertised on a... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner here, it's not the most extensive menu, but there is something for everyone. The food was terrific, and the service was first class. All in all, a great experience!

The food was Good. One member of the family had the Caesars salad and It was served in a way I hadn't seen before. There were huge leaves on the bottom with the other ingredients setting on top. Two of the four meals were brought out 10 minutes before the other two. We were staying at the hotel so it... More
