We had dinner here on a Thursday night in May 2017. Service was flawless as was the food. Make sure you leave room for dessert - creme brulee and tarte tatin are definite winners.

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

I'd be surprised if you were disappointed with this venue but a phone call to the restaurant might be the best approach. I'm not aware of any wow seating options if that is a specific preference.
