This restaurant has kept a very high level of excellence over the past years that we have been going there. The staff are very attentive and the food is of a very high level. Would recommend this restaurant to patrons who are looking for fine dining at its best.

Apart from a long delay initially getting served, the service was very good, friendly and cheerful. Meals for our large gathering all came out together, which was great. Food was excellent, beautifully prepared, tasty. Some of the steaks were a little tough, though good flavour and grilled as requested. Very expensive (including the wine) and meals did not come with... More

Been here many times over the years, always outstanding food and decor and service. Great wine selection and for a fine dining experience is quite economical. Never had a bad meal, always happy to take new visitors to the Geelong area here for a night out!

My partner and I went along for a treat for my birthday. Upon booking we were asked if it was a special occasion and again when we were seated we were asked and told them it was my birthday. I thought something special might happen like a candle in the dessert! Unfortunately nothing special. The food was lovely but overpriced.... More

We didn't eat here but we did stop in for drinks on each of the two nights we stayed in Geelong. The open fire was what enticed us in on the first night! Cosy and warm. Good service too. We'll try the restaurant next time. The menu reads well!

For a romantic dinner for two, a special occasion or with a group of friends this is the place to go. This is my 'go to' restaurant. Consistency is paramount and that is what you get every time.

We went to this restaurant for a relaxed business dinner. We loved the food - really well presented, really tasty, and an excellent selection on the menu to keep everyone happy. The venue itself is really well-presented, and the staff are absolutely lovely. Nothing was too much trouble. Nice touch with the honeycomb on the dessert. We'll be back !

It's always a treat to dine here. The food is amazing, teasing you to come back and do it all over again. Small serves and not cheap, but worth every bite and every dollar. The flavours and presentation are what you would expect for your money. They have a good selection of gluten free to choices from. Can't wait to... More

We went to the Empire Grill on a Wednesday night - it was surprisingly busy but in a good way - (nothing worse than dining in an empty restaurant). The staff were great from the minute we walked in, the service was excellent, not too slow and not too fast. I had the calamari for entree which was delicious, my... More
