“Average, not as good as I'd hoped.”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

The decor was nice & the staff were friendly. But the food was average at best. My first thought was that they were using old meat or simply don't use the best suppliers.

It's not difficult to make wings, rumps & burgers taste good. But somehow their chef struggles...

It was only lunch, perhaps the dinner chefs are better?

I'd think about trying them for dinner, but it just doesn't seem to be a place that takes pride in their food. I'd describe it as an upmarket Sizzler, with that bland, franchised approach to cooking.

“This should not have happened”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We arrived at the restaurant and were greeted by a friendly hostess who showed us to a table we had reserved. This was, unfortunately, the highlight of our evening.

The restaurant was full of the hustle and bustle of a successful eating establishment. We placed our orders; ribs for me and Wagu beef steak for my wife. It took 90 minutes for our food to arrive. Although we enjoyed our conversation, this was far too long. Our waitress stopped at our table a couple of times and apologised, “I’m very sorry”, she said “but we’re just incredibly busy”. I’ve never liked this line. I thought restaurants wanted to be busy. It is a variation on the “if it weren’t for customers, we’d run a great business”.

Our meals did finally arrive. My wife had ordered her steak ‘rare’. It wasn’t. She made comment to the waitress who agreed and took it back to the kitchen. Then someone else came from the kitchen with the same steak and an explanation from the chef: “the steak is rare. Wagu beef could not be cooked any more rare”. Believe me, it wasn’t rare. “Would you like us to prepare another”? My wife declined, not wanting to wait for another 90 minutes and then eat without me.

My ribs were OK. Nothing special.

This is not an inexpensive restaurant, as you will read in other reviews. And that is OK if your food and service are aligned with that price. But in this case, on this night, the food and service fell far short of the price charged.
