The restaurant was beautiful and warm. The menu was interesting but the execution of the food was fair. We had Yellow Curry and the Mini-nut Squash, two entree's that seemed like they would be full of flavor but they were both rather bland.

Had a great at-the-bar meal here with a colleague. Entire meal was terrific - fresh and well prepared - and the salad dressing is pretty much life changing. Very much enjoyed and would recommend.

The food here was amazing and prices were very low for the quality of the food. Wish I could eat here every day.

Enjoyed a dinner during a stay at the Lismore. The bar staff was knowledgeable and attentive. The food was good, not remarkable and somewhat pretentious. Even so, it was served hot, was tasty and well made.

The dinner salads served with our entrees were great. The roasted pork belly, one of the daily specials, was much better than the pork short ribs. Nice crispy skin. The outdoor seating would be nice if the weather cooperates.
