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

Having a birthday on Boxing Day can prove hard to find restaurants open. We are in Melbourne for one night, it was a surprise trip, so wanted somewhere special to eat. Taxi met all our expectations, the food, service, location was stunning. The sommelier was very knowledgeable & matched the wines perfectly to our meals. Everything we ordered was divine! The staff were welcoming and helpful. Made for a perfect birthday dine.

This is a favourite haunt of mine and my wife's. We love degustations and Taxi is one of our favourites. The staff make you feel very welcome and it's not in the slightest bit pretentious. The views over the city are lovely at night. Can get a bit warm in the summer and if you find the sun is shining in your yes the staff will lend you sunnies.

We went here for dinner on Boxing Day. It's a nice blend of Australian and Japanese cuisine. We enjoyed the sushi and sashimi entree along with the tempura veges. Our group also liked the beef, salmon and turkey main courses. The service was amazing on arrival, but was less reliable as the restaurant filled up. We still really enjoyed our meal. Be sure to walk along the riverfront afterwards to full enjoy the area.
