I have been to CGOH many times before and have never had a bad experience, The service is impeccable and the food is sublime. An outstanding winelist is complimented by the on-hand sommelier with a wealth of knowlege minus the pomp. Medium minus sees my scotch steak on the medium side of med rare everytime and the desserts do more... More

We have been here on three occasions and each time we enjoy the steak cooked to you liking with great bread/fries and simple cabbage salad with a tangy dressing. Its the usual formula with nothing fancy expect high quality ingredients and good cooking. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. An unexpected highlight is that it has one of the best wine... More

So what you get is a steak and not much else. Choices are limited. The wine was excellent. The ambience is good, the service more than just OK and the place was packed even on a weekday evening and the steak was really good.

Charcoal Grill on the Hill is a favourite restaurant for us as a family, it is always a night we enjoy. Last night was no exception. A birthday dinner. We feel so welcome on arrival and for the entire night the service is wonderful. We always love the steak with our particular favourite being the scotch fillet medium rare. Last... More

By far the juiciest, tastiest steak I have ever had, on par with Rockpool as well as other steak joints I have patronised such as The Cut in Singapore and Goodmans, Maze Grill, Hawksmoor and Gaucho in London. Great value for the size and price. Highly Recommended.

When I was Melbourne in 2008, a native recommended Charcoal Grill on the Hill. The dinner was exquisite, the little, former house adorable, and the steak one of the very best I've had. A week ago I was again in Melbourne with a friend from the US. As confirmed carnivores, we decided to see if it was still good. It... More

I was taken here for a special occasion to have a culinary experience. Out of our normal price range so we were hoping it would be worthwhile. Was not disappointed in any aspect. Restaurant is small and a little crowded but we were made to feel comfortable from the time we entered. Even offering to hang jackets. First thing you... More

They make beautiful steaks, but you don't feel like they sell steaks but wine most of the time. Happy to go there when I have more cash.
