Copper Pot

Seddon

Kelly dined on Tue, 30th May 2017 (10)

As always a wonderful experience. The food, wine and staff are excellent and probably the shining jewel of the inner west.

Taxi Kitchen

Melbourne CBD

Kelly dined on Tue, 21st Mar 2017 (10)

The food and wine were lovely, the cherry souffle absolutely fabulous. Our waitress was brilliant. i really enjoyed the experience and will return soon.

Rare Downtown (King St)

Melbourne CBD

Kelly dined on Tue, 14th Mar 2017 (5)

The steak was lovely, but the sides left much to be desired. The mashed potato was a bit dry and probably stale. The roasted vegetables were soggy and flavorless. The green beans were okay. It would be nice if there were a Bearnaise sauce on the menu (NOT from a packet!) given this is a steak restaurant! I also think it would be nice if the steak came with veggies and potatoes, rather than one or the other, given the price point.

Rosa's Canteen

Melbourne CBD

Kelly dined on Wed, 1st Mar 2017 (9)

It was pretty nice to have Rosa come to our table personally...felt like meeting a celebrity!

Station Hotel

Footscray

Kelly dined on Sun, 22nd Jan 2017 (6)

The steak was wonderful as always, but the port schnitzel was not good. Flavorless and did not match the description on the menu. I would not recommend that anyone order it.

Paris Go

Carlton

Kelly dined on Sun, 9th Oct 2016 (6)

This place was lovely.

Station Hotel

Footscray

Kelly dined on Wed, 5th Oct 2016 (7)

Things were very good, but they've lost the shine that made them special. You can tell that they are now one of many cogs in a large hospitality wheel. Still good, but not special.

Punch Lane

Melbourne CBD

Kelly dined on Fri, 3rd Jun 2016 (7)

lovely meal, lovely staff, very nice atmosphere

The General Assembly

South Wharf

Kelly dined on Mon, 4th Jan 2016 (5)

We were the only ones in the restaurant and the waitress immediately sat us in the only table next to the kitchen. We moved ourselves to a table by the windows. The steaks were good, but then we ordered the donuts for dessert. The first batch were not cooked all the way through and the dough was raw. The second batch was overcooked, so you needed a sledge hammer to cut them in half. I'd say they were frozen and had not been defrosted enough to cook. I wouldn't return.

The Pavilion McCrae Beach

Mccrae

Kelly dined on Sun, 1st Nov 2015 (4)

This was pretty disappointing. The food wasn't anything to write home about and the waiter kept forgetting about us. We wouldn't go back and we were not impressed overall.

San Telmo

Melbourne CBD

Kelly dined on Sun, 4th Oct 2015 (7)

Our reservation was for my husband's birthday and he was very, very happy! Thank you!

Sud Food & Wine

Beautiful seafood pasta on the specials. I would come back just for that!

+39 Pizzeria

the pasta marinara was one of the best I've had!

Station Hotel

Footscray

I was a bit nervous when I heard that they had sold, but everything was exactly the same...fantastic!

This visit was a bit disappointing. We booked a table in the bar and were told about a half hour before our arrival that we couldn't sit there and had to sit outside on a cold and rainy night. The tables we weren't allowed to use because of a private function were never used by the function. Apparently they were being saved to allow a "ring of silence" around the function in another room. Ridiculous and management should not have allowed it.

Jacques Reymond

Prahran

Kelly dined on Fri, 29th Nov 2013 (8)

It's a shame Jacques is closing.

Sud Food & Wine

Melbourne CBD

Kelly dined on Fri, 8th Nov 2013 (8)

It was lovely, but waiting over an hour for mains (when no entrees were ordered) during a business lunch is a little too long. It is nice to linger, but one needs to be able to get back to the office within a reasonable amount of time.

This is one of my favourite restaurants. The tenderloin is the best in Melbourne.

Steer Bar & Grill

South Yarra

Kelly dined on Sat, 14th Sep 2013 (5)

This place was nice but for the price, not nice enough. Biggest let down was the flavorless bernaise sauce. The onion rings were very greasy. If I'm going to spend that kind of money on steak, I'd prefer to go to rockpool

I would like to see some gluten free on the menu. And a notation when it is gluten free.

Food was fabulous, but $9 per pot of beer is pushing the friendship.

Tonik Bar

Nice place.

Mercy bar + eatery

Melbourne CBD

Kelly dined on Fri, 3rd May 2013 (10)

We had a 50% off booking and we were so very happy that we went! The food was spectacularly good. Everything was lovely. The staff were particularly flawless. My only criticism, and it is a minor one, is that the banana dessert with the "salted caramel" icecream was awful. The ice cream was not salted caramel. Maybe bitter caramel and the dessert itself had problems. Other than that, it was practically perfect!

Bar Humbug

This is a good local place, been around for years.

Tonik Bar

Kensington

Kelly dined on Tue, 19th Mar 2013 (6)

I usually like this place a lot, but it wasn't that great this visit. We had the chickpea balls, which were nicely flavoured, but very dry and crumbly. We both had the pork belly with Asian salad. We were not expecting that it would be pulled pork through a salad with no dressing. The pork was extremely salty and the salad lacked flavour without a dressing. I don't think we would have been disappointed if he menu had accurately stated that it was a salad with pork, not pork belly and if there had been a dressing. We were there on Parma night...wish I had one. They looked fantastic!

We particularly liked the duck breast. My husband loved the beef cheek. Special thanks to Andrew, the restaurant manager, for being so friendly and accommodating.

Amorosa

Williamstown

Kelly dined on Thu, 8th Nov 2012 (6)

The waiter we had was particularly lovely...we especially appreciated his suggestion that we have the fettucini over the spaghetti because it was homemade. it was beautiful!

Bergerac Restaurant

Melbourne CBD

Kelly dined on Thu, 18th Oct 2012 (7)

Food is great and it is a Melbourne institution, but it's starting to look very dated. I think they should consider a refurb (even if it was just a new carpet, tables and chairs) and some new wine glasses to bring it up to modern standards.

Tonik Bar

The staff were very friendly. They also have an acceptionally good choice of gluten-free options.

The fireworks made the night magical. Our waiter had an impressive knowledge of the menu and the chef's modes of preparation.

Good value. Reasonably priced date night.
