My fiance and I came here for an early Friday night dinner, and were given a cosy table outside under the heaters. The service we were given was faultless and very attentive. The food was absolutely amazing and delicious. Best Chocolate Fondant ever!!! Love this restaurant and we will definitely return.

We didn't get there until about 8pm but the place was still very busy and we had a table outside but they had some great heaters and so it wasn't cold at all and the view over the river and of the city lights was lovely. The service throughout the meal was great, friendly and efficient. Because it was so... More

The good service and food should be expected at an establishment that charge the prices the Waterfront does. Have dined here before and would again.

Had eaten here a few times now and it's always a winner. Love taking special friends and overseas visitors here as the setting is perfect for a great Melbourne culinary experience. My favourite dish is the calamari !

My cousin, his wife and I decided to have lunch together on the spur of the moment. I had stayed the night before at The Langham so was looking for something close. It was Mother's Day and we didn't have a booking but were blown away by Waterfront Southgate. We got the last table at noon, inside, and had to... More

The salmon entree with beetroot was great. The 400gm Rib on the bone was the best steak i have ever eaten. Absolutely amazing. Cooked and seasoned to perfection. Words cannot describe how good. You have to experience that if you are a steak connisieur.

Left our hotel, the Langham, and found this restaurant less than five minutes away. Sat outside under heaters and had a wonderful view of the city lights at night. Shared three dishes with my wife. Two were truly excellent, the seared tuna and a 400g rib eye on the bone. The tuna was served very rare as we wanted. We... More
