I went there on my birthday. Their aged beef is a must try. Good place for special occasions as it's expensive. Cost $300 plus for two (with wine).

Arrived early for dinner but our table by the main window was ready, so we were seated straight away. Menu selection is as extensive and tantalising as always! It's one of the hardest menus to make a selection from given the great range of options.

We ended up having three courses and shared a bottle of wine that the sommelier assisted us in picking. Entree tastes of the sea was excellent, main was the duck - perfectly cooked - with a side of brussel sprouts with chestnuts - a must have! wonderful flavour and certainly nothing like the sprouts we've all been traumatised by as children. dessert i selected the vanilla slice - which was spectacular. I wasn't expecting much from a humble vanilla slice, but this was absolutely stunning in terms of flavour and consistency.

Service was excellent, as you would expect and couldn't be faulted. It's always a bit of an indulgence coming to Rockpool and is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.

Look forward to coming back again.

With the waiters jacketed up, and a dark and cosy ambience in the dining room, the whole experience here was memorable. The service was fast and efficient, and the food delicious. Located right on the Yarra near the casino, it is within easy walking distance of nearby hotels. I enjoyed the duck with caramelised pears followed by the pavlova - yum!

We love this restaurant and it is our go to for taking family and friends out. It has a wide selection menu that caters for all and we have not had a bad or average dish to date. Portion sizes are generous. Rockpool is famous for its steaks and it showcases great Australian produce and will not not disappoint.

Disappointing to leave a 'blah' review for what should have been a great restaurant visit. Husband chose Rockpool for lunch to celebrate his 50th birthday. Waiters were pleasant, tho' timing on the service was out (slow); steak was good however at $70 (sides extra) no more impressive than what those we've eaten for much less. I'm pleased to see so many positive reviews and hope this was just a one-off experience. Either way, we're not hurrying back. Had a brilliant dinner at Movida the following night - and it cost way less than the $230 for two at Rockpool.
