Nice staff and drinks, but okay food.

I visited on a Friday night with friends. Even though we booked a table earlier that day, they lost our reservation. They said that they could squeeze us in. I ordered a chicken burger and for some reason the bread was soggy before I even got to eating it. Besides the initial comment the staff were... read more

We ordered the Atlantic Salmon and the Barramundi. They were both sensational! Staff looked really tired as it was very busy but still served with politeness and grace. Thank you for a lovely meal. We will be back!

Certainly a venue for a quick pizza and drink before a menu or something... More

We have been to Balsamic on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed with the food nor the service. It is a large restaurant so plenty of room for larger groups, office lunches etc. Try the wood-fired pizza!

The rudeness of the waitstaff at this establishment is appalling. Great menu change, it would be great if the attitudes would change with it.
