We booked here because of the TA ratings. Its at least 100 further down the list. it was that unmemorable that I had to refer to the bill to see what we ordered. It's nice and the setting is pleasant, it just doesn't deserve the rating.

Normally visit the Jervois every 3 months with overseas guest. Last visit was 30th July with an American colleague that has taken me to many US based steak houses. He was impressed. Service was impeccable as usual. We shared a Calamari Schnitzel to start. He ordered the Eye Fillet on the bone and I had the lamb rack. First time... More

We came here for lunch using a Grab One Voucher. The service was great - staff friendly and accommodating without hovering. Food was fantastic - Steaks cooked perfectly. The Calamari starter was so tender and juicy. Chocolate Fondant was to die for. We will be back soon.

Fantastic service, good steak, average sides. I definitely don't think this place deserves the hype it gets. My steak was cooked well but cold, the sides were overcooked and bland and the sauces were average. Desserts were nothing special. Overpriced and overrated in my opinion.

Toothfish. Doesn't any restaurant that serves toothfish just HAVE to be the best? I had a toothfish and scallop risotto but thankfully rather than trying to chop up the toothfish, they still served that as a fillet in the middle - and two scallops on the plate also had a wonderful texture. My wife had a fillet steak which despite... More

Just had the most marvellous lunch all at a bargain 'Grabone' (a special price website) price. The steak - Jervois Fillet on the bone - was cooked to perfection with a choice of healthy sides plus various fries if you must. I mention the special price because sometimes these deals aren't that special or cheap. This had a few exclusions... More
