My husband and I were in the city at lunchtime, so took the opportunities to visit this restaurant whose name I'd heard, but hadn't been to visit. We phoned in to book while we were shopping, and went in 15 minutes later. The atmosphere was peaceful, and quite luxurious in a reserved way. The waitstaff was very efficient and polite,... More

We had a head start as the chef was friend of one of our party. The food was superb and the service excellent. If you're looking for somewhere special then this is the place to go.

So have been here several times now. The food has always been impeccable and haven't had an issue with staff up until this point. So initially I did walk in with a singlet and was asked to cover. I actually did consider doing beforehand so I was completely fine with the way the staff handled that. My waitress seemed new... More

I have dined at VSB on a number of occasions and the food and service never fails to impress. It is one of those consistent performers that you can rely on for a great all round experience.

We came here for an 18th birthday dinner the other night, and were appalled at the service. According to the wait staff, you do not turn 18 until the day after your birthday. This is the only restaurant I've ever heard of doing this - most other places and bars took us and would even offer complimentary birthday drinks. This... More

We went here for a ladies lunch last Sunday. The service was great, they accommodated us nicely however the room was absolutely freezing. We had to ask for the air conditioner to be turned off. The food was delicious however portion sizes were so small we ended up going across the road to Keystone to get additional food. Also there... More

This restaurant is outstanding in every way. Excellence in food quality and presentation. Outstanding staff and service. Their knowledge of wines helps to marry the fine food with fine wine. I also love the ambience, it makes a special night out so enjoyable. While the bill was not cheap, it didn't have that expectation either. I am more than happy... More
