“Osso bucco”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

The osso bucco was excellent. I think that's all I remember about the meal because it was so good. They do a pretty good breakfast too.

“-Average service”
Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant lacks charm in its design. There were 10 of us and the service was very slow. There were different people taking our orders, and the hour and a half wait for the food, after many requests to find our orders, finally produced some food. However, the "sides" were lost, and were scattered willy nilly along the table. For the price of the food, (most of us ordered steaks) at $40, this was very disappointing. The sweets were very nice, particularly the gelato. as the restaurant had emptied, our orders were delivered promptly, but no attempt was made to deliver the right orders to the right people, so we all had to bid for our orders. All in all very average

“Solid steakhouse”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

The service was consistently good from start to finish. The ribeye on the bone came to me as ordered - medium rare - spot on. Good selection of wine by the glass. Only fault I could find was they started packing up some tables quite early - could've left this for after guts had left. But good overall and would go back.

“Great Meal on New Years!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Food here was really lovely! The only downside was the service which was a bit slow and often had to hail someone if we needed everything. Given it was New Years I think this hopefully was an exception. Either way the food is well worth it!

“Delicious food but venue is like the hotel buffet breakfast place.”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Went with my husband. His rib eye fillet was awesome. My wild barramundi was great but a bit too much salt. Value for money is excellent (particularly with the entertainment card discount).

But the service was a bit slack and the venue doesn't certainly isn't fine dining.
