We enjoyed a pleasant dinner for 4 at the Meat Market. The food was tasty and plentiful and the staff were excellent. The menu was a bit limited as some of the starters been taken off the menu to be replaced with several seafood specials, and as one of our group wasn't as seafood eater limited his options to 2 starters. The fish specials for main course sounded good but were to share so that limited us again. We all ended up having steak for main course. My husbands steak had grissle in the centre so he wasn't able to finish it. He didn't want to complain as we were guests of the couple we dined with and he didn't want to seem ungracious. The wines were good as were the deserts. I think it was a bit highly priced for the standard of food. With so much quality on offer in Melbourne I probably wouldn't go back to the Meat Market.

We had the $20 lunch and drink special today. Both of us ordered the steak frites and a glass of wine. Steak way perfectly cooked and the fries were nice and crunchy. Bernaise sauce was a little too salty for my palette, but the Sav Blanc cleaned the palette well.
Staff were great and gave my 2 year old an activity set. Would eat here again for sure

What a great spot for Sunday Lunch. Had a few good meals here sitting in the sun on the riverside. The Bucket O Prawns is the best, Sunday roast goes OK too. The menu is extensive with food to interest most tastes. Good beverage list as well. Would be a great place for a "Business Lunch" on a Friday afternoon!

Arrived without a reservation as our plans had changed due to some nasty weather approaching. Asking for a table for 10 on a Saturday night without a reservation received the laughing response we expected (but shouldn't have gotten). We were seated at a high bar type table. Initially concerned about the lack of service, this was quickly sorted out as a misunderstanding/miscommunication as they thought we wanted to wait to be reseated once we could be accommodated at a regular table. From there everything was great. Service was friendly, relaxed but professional. Food was great with the whole table of 10 receiving different cuts of meat cooked as ordered. Some sides were a little stingy for the price, eg mushrooms, while others were generouse like beans, salad and spinach. Couldn't comment on the mash as it had sold out which was disappointing for a steak restaurant. Wine list had good choices for all budgets. Would definitely come back

Went for lunch in a party of 8 and we were all disappointed. Service was terrible - after waiting 45 minutes for our meals after ordering, I was told that they will be another 10 minutes and we shouldn't have expected them any earlier. I should say as well that there were only another 6 people in the restaurant, so it wasnt as they were too busy. We were all a little stunned to be with the tone of the response. When the food finally arrived, the food was ok, but not great and not worth the wait. Discovered this place on a wander around South Wharf and thought we would try somewhere new, but wouldn't bother going back.
