There is something about this place, apart from the name of the original owners! Food is sensational and service to match.

We went to Ezard with a group of six people recently and having not been for a number of years I was getting fuelled with anticipation and ended up thinking it was all hype. Firs the place is so dark you should bring a head torch, I kid you not. To read the menu we had to use our phone... More

I chose this restaurant based on reviews from here. The decor is nice, especially the vertical garden that greets you at the base of the stairs. Service was excellent although I wish I had the same waitress for each course of my detestation. It's strange when someone new arrives and starts explaining the dish. The food was inventive and full... More

I went with my husband for dinner, one entree was fine, the other awful and the same for the mains. Didn't bother to stay for desert. Took over an hour to get entree, staff were ok. Over priced and not very good over all. It is also soooo ugly inside this place, no atmosphere at all.. Couldn't wait to leave...... More

I was very disappointed with the service, which was scripted and robotic. I expect some warmth and friendliness from a five star experience, Its a shame this was lacking. Our Sommelier appeared to be the only real human in Ezard, who took the time to abandon the script and actually explain the wines.There was just no real warmth and friendliness... More

A place to impress in the fine dining category. Extensive menu with great delicious dishes. Emphasis on quality rather than quantity. The waiters were helpful but lacked friendliness. Overall a great experience. Highly recommended. Price wise, a bit on the expensive side.

Our superstar server, Danielle, remembered us from our last visit. She guided us through the menu changes. The unassuming and friendly sommelier suggested a wine that wasn’t on the wine list (Clarendon Hills Grenache). Sublime. We commenced with a Japanese inspired oyster shooter – one of their signature starters. We followed this with the Western Australian marron. So absurdly good!... More

Husband and youngest son treated me to the degustation experience for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. Husband and I shared the wines to accompany courses and son enjoyed the alcohol free version. Food and wine (and non alcoholic drinks!) magnificent. Service great. Couldn't have had a more enjoyable evening. Great experience.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
