Description: For a 180 degree view of Melbourne's city skyline, Yarra River and Arts Precinct, journey to Taxi Kitchen in Federation Square's Transport Hotel. Hosting cocktail events, a la carte dining, pre-show drinks and boasting three private function dining rooms, Taxi Kitchen dazzles guests with views through floor to ceiling glass windows complemented by earthy tones, indoor greenery and natural light for a clean, semi-alfresco feel. Playful menu items provoke a certain inquisitiveness of guests, charmingly presented on a bed of black pebbles, rustic wooden boards or in colourful, textured dishes. Delight in any or all six courses from seared scallops with red radish, smoked chilli mayo and katiafi to Wagyu porterhouse with creamed potato and jus gras - just be sure to leave room for dessert

We enjoyed our dinner here as a couple and felt that the quality of the food and service was fantastic.

We ordered a bottle of wine $100+ which was left off the final bill - we did the right thing and had our bill adjusted however we felt bad that we saw the wine waitress getting in trouble as we left by the manager. Left a bad taste in our mouth.

We arrived in melbourne on a sunday and as most restaurants were shut - we thought we'd give Taxi a try. What a lovely surprise (we were initially hesitant as we weren't sure how they would handle the kids) The view is breathtaking. We were given a table next to the window overlooking the Yarra. The restaurant had a nice ambience, busy without seeming harried. Everything on the menu looked so good we had difficulty deciding. We finally settled on the scallops and tataki for entree, and the lamb and duck curry for main. - what a great introduction to the menbourne dining scene. The chef also made up a special tempura fish and roast potatoes for the kids. Very extensive wine list! Overall a very pleasant night out

This is the restaurant where locals take friends and family when they want to blow them away with amazing food, spectacular view and just want to be made to feel like a rockstar.

Located on Fed Square, overlooking Flinders St, St Kilda Rd and the Yarra (when booking ask of the best table in the house is available (as this allows you to get the full panoramic view) A little bit of trivia is that is where Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes sat.

Besides the food, what i love the most is the staff. The service although extremely professional, is always served with a wink, and dont be surprised if the waiter shares some funny antidote or just tailoring the way interact with you. If you want formal, then thats what you get, but if your happy to have a chat, you`ll see a cheeky side come out.

The food is sublime and prepared with flair. Some of the dishes look too good to eat, but i did. Highlights are the soft shell crab nori rolls, the Scallops wrapped in Kattafi noodles...Mains you cant go past the Wagyu poerthouse, or the rabbit wrapped in pancetta is on the menu then that is also a winner.

So if your wanting to show Melbourne and its dining room all in the same go, then Taxi is the place to do it.....

Trust me you`ll love it!

The food and service is fabulous. Unique venue in our opinion. Just across the road from Flinders St station and next door to Fed Square. Always better to book
