Real shame about this place such a great location could be so much more but they seem to fail dismally at every aspect on providing a pleasant dining experience, the service was awful the restaurant manager was more interested in watching the television than serving the customers the food was absoloutley awful and overpriced just an all round terrible experience....... I suggest you go somewhere that actually wants and appreciates your business.

Looking for somewhere close by one recent Saturday night, dinner with husband and a girlfriend. Rang to book a table at the Level 1 restaurant. but when we arrived it is a help yourself to a menu and sit where you like sort of place.

There is a large outdoor area that in Summer would be fabulous, the views over the bay were stunning but it was a coolish, showery night so indoors for us.

The restaurant isn’t really a restaurant, it is just a bar where you go up to order your meals and drinks. And apart from the outside area there was nothing particularly marvellous about it. The tables and chairs, the whole décor was very plain and unremarkable.

There was a particular sparkling wine on the menu that I would have liked a bottle of but after much searching none could be found – the hostess was most apologetic – it did take rather a long time to end up with a couple of glasses of fairly ordinary sparkling white.

There were pretty mixed reviews on Trip Advisor about this place so I was looking forward to our meal with some trepidation We had ordered a serve of home made chicken and pork spring rolls to start off with but they never arrived. However our main meals made up for any shortcomings in the décor or the service.

Hubbie and I both had a Fillet Mignon ($33.50), my friend had Rib –Eye steak ($34.00). All of us were impressed with our meals. The vegies were perfectly cooked, the chips were good, the steaks were all cooked exactly to our liking. We all ate every morsel on our plates. I was very pleasantly surprised and the prices were quite reasonable.

A band started up around 9.00 pm or so, time for us to leave, but there seemed plenty arriving to enjoy the entertainment.

So, some smoothing out to do here, but in Summer I would not hesitate to return to enjoy a relaxed meal on the outside deck taking in that view. Also happy to give the downstairs bistro
'Jack's' a go too one day.

We are locals that have lived in the Mordialloc area pretty much all our lives. We have seen this place morph from being a dated local bar, to a place that we now like to go and take our kids. Over the last few months the management seem to have been trying really hard to re-invent themselves, with membership, raffle draws, new menu's, and all different incentives to bring customers in. We havent been for close to a year, as we were sick of the average food, and slow service. We went again this week, and the meals were ok ( dont expect an exciting menu or top class food!), but they are generous portions, and quite edible - standard bistro fare!!!. The service was great, all the staff seem quite friendly. Service was a bit slow, but not too bad. I would say if you havent tried this place for a while, or havent been there before, give it a go, as they seem to be making an effort to make it better, and you certainly wont leave there hungry!!

Ordered "Grilled Chicken Breast with Garlic prawns on Rice". Received overcooked chicken with three Raw prawns covered in lumpy cream sauce, old roast potatoes and mixed vegies. No Rice. Complained and the waiter told us that we got what we ordered. chicken and prawns. Even the Head chef conceded that the prawns were raw and the dish was unacceptable.
The waiter was extremely rude and did not care, we were not even offered a refund, even when my wife ended up in tears due to the poor standard of service.
You pay when you order so it seems that they don't feel like they need to try to impress you once they have already received your money.
Terrible meal, terrible service. I am a member of the Sporting Club but will definitely never return, and am handing in my membership after this visit.
