Came here on a week night with family plus a (sleeping) baby in the group and the staff were very professional and accommodating. I've eaten here 3 times now and haven't had a bad experience. Nice wine list and wonderful flavours from the food. The Foodstore has a great ambience and décor, isn't pretentious and would be a place I... More

A group of 6 of us dropped in for lunch. The 1st aspect that impressed me was the professionalism of the wait staff. He would suggest wine to go with specific food items. If the serving was adequately large, he will caution us from "over-ordering". All our clarifications (from the sauce to the "non-English" sounding descriptions, etc), He would respond.The... More

We had a family meal and were very grateful that the chef changed one of the dishes to suit our fussy eater. With him taken care of the rest of us enjoyed exquisite meals. I even enjoyed parsnip mash as it went so beautifully with the duck. That was unexpected! Couldn't fault anything.

One of the best meals I've ever had!! The fish of the day with the celariac and muscles was to die for. My husband's steak was done to perfection and finally the butterscotch pana cotta with salted caramel and hokey pokey was a symphony of taste sensations. Yes I know the fine wine is probably talking, but if I was... More

The Footsore is such a fun and lively restaurant with so much going on! It is fun to watch the chefs at work on the screens scattered around the restaurant so if you are conscious of dining alone then please don't be. The menu is well planned and the wine list extensive. The well trained Wine Waiters will happily recommend... More

Had expectations that were perhaps higher than what was on offer, menu was limited , a bit pricey for the portion sizes, $16 for a glass of wine, service was average. Was a business dinner could have ordered what you want, but felt over all was expensive for what you got.

we went to the Foodstore as a special treat, having seen all the talk on TV. The setting is nice, and the staff were very friendly and prompt. However, a capital offence tome, is to have a wIter lean over across me to deliver.. Anything... If there is not enough room to get around me, put your my left hand,... More

Had a business dinner here and was really impressed. Portion size is typically small for this type of restaurant but the quality was absolutely top notch
