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

This restaurant is perfectly located in the centre of town and the views of the Melbourne city skyline are beautiful at night.

It has a great atmosphere and can get rather loud at the heart of an evening.

Service was impeccable and the food well presented and delicious - especially the Wagyu steak that I had which was rather a large piece of meat cooked perfectly throughout.

The wine selection is good with a knowledgable sommelier on hand to help you choose for your taste.

Taxi is at Federation Square, the meeting place for all that is supposed to be Melbourne. The atmosphere is vibrant and busy. The decor is modern. The food is very interesting and we presented. Sashimi is terrific. Don't go there if you are hungry as the positions are very small. Good wine list.
Taxi's not the place for a quite intimate lunch or dinner.

Went here with some old work colleagues for lunch one day. They did a very nice light lunch at a reasonable price. The staff were excellent and very helpful. Couldn't help but think it was lacking something

My wife booked this restaurant 6 months out for my birthday and I don't think it lives up to its reputation.
The venue is very noisy we had large groups of tables around us which made it hard to have a conversation.
Our waitress seemed to whisper when she spoke making it hard to order our meals - the service was ok but not on par with other fine dining in Melbourne .

Overall the food was ok - nothing special, the wine list was extensive and very good. The mains were overpriced for what we had and given the overall feel of the place I think we could of done better elsewhere.
