We arrived on time , there were only 10 diners, we ordered or pre dinner drinks they arrived 20 min. Later, about an hour our order was taken as well as an order for a bottle of wine. Our dinner arrived 45 min later - cold - and the wine arrived after we finished our dinner - over priced

They advise "bookings are a must" but there was only 4-5 other tables of guests dining when we arrived at 7pm.

We ordered a main course of Fillet Mignon ($38) which arrived 45mins later (shame about the wait) .. but it was cooked beautifully to our choice.

Wine selection for buying "by the glass" is limited to one for each wine type (eg. chardonnay, merlot etc) - cost averages around $7 per/glass. Considering they are located in a winery district, I would have thought they could be promoting more local wineries a provide an extensive selection.

Service, although friendly enough, was a little slow especially when trying to obtain our account.

Overall dining was okay and "suitable" for a hotel restaurant.

I do not often write bad reviews, like most I simply ask for decent service, good food, price equivalent to the service and food and a nice atmosphere. With the steakhouse we did not even get to the food. Admittedly we made a late booking (one hour before) but they said yes ok. They could have said no if they were too busy. We arrived on time and were told they were running about 10 minutes late. No problem for us. We returned 10 minutes later. A male staff member was openly agitated about something and was not hiding his feelings. I thought oh oh this does not bode well. We were shown to our table. Twenty minutes went by and no one took our order, no one actually came near us. Another twenty minutes passed with no one taking our order by which time our daughter was tired and agitated and so were we. We left.

How difficult to just take our order, get us some starters, or come and give us some of the most basic of human respect could it be? The restaurant was approximately 70% full. This was expensive as far as steakhouses go but we were prepared to pay but in that expense is dining experience and service. We were not afforded that opportunity.

I cannot remain silent and warn others. It's a real shame. I was looking forward to a nice steak and ended up earring nothing but cheese and biscuits that night.

The taste and portion is great! We enjoyed our dinner there. The only downside is not understanding our options. Did not know that the Le Club Accorhotels card can be applied and we paid full price for the meal which is $55 aud per set whereby we can get a 50% off with the card.
