Not tempted to go back, been quite a few times over the years... Just too noisy and the food is distinctly average... Not sure if it has changed hands or not...

I used to love going to Balsamic for their fine food and good customer service, however in recent times they have dropped a lot of their menu delights, such as the beef hamburger, and now have a limited venue. The quality of the food is fair but the commitment from the management has lost me a lot. A shame because... More

I ordered the Thai Beef Salad. Sounded amazing! Didn't taste so great. Salad was pretty good but the beef wrecked the dish. It was over cooked (tough). Waste of money!

We are really sorry to hear that your beef salad was over cooked. Its a great dish when cooked well & certainly suffers if over cooked. We would love to send you a voucher to give it another go & if you can email me at richard@balsamic.com.au with your contact information. More

Great for a meal before a movie or after shopping. Staff friendly and large menu to choose from. Bar area is always busy but it is nice to have it divided from the restaurant so there is no noise. Definitely recommend for a lovely meal.

We have been to this restaurant twice in the past couple of months as it offers good food at reasonable prices. The staff are friendly and the service is quick which is good as it is opposition Hoyts and lots of people go for a meal before seeing a movie. There is also a bar area off to one side,... More

A reasonable meal for the money, but more like a Coles cafeteria. Food was ample but not exceptional. Would not return in a hurry.
