We tried the Melbourne Rockpool and loved it so we thought to give the Perth Rockpool a try for a special occasion. As it was a special occasion birthday I did mentioned this when I booked and was pleased to hear the maitre de wish them a happy birthday upon greeting us and showing us to table. All of the service staff were polite and professional and after being overwhelmed with the wine menu, the sommelier provided some helpful suggestions. We considered the $55 lunch special, but the menu didn't overly appeal and we fancied having what Rockpool are known for which is steak. Knowing how big the serves are we skipped entree and ordered a T-bone steak for 2. I did see it on the online menu but not on the printed menu and had to ask if it was still available. Steak was expertly cooked to medium rare as ordered and the service staff did check that it was cooked to our liking. The sides of mushy peas, baby carrots in Bourbon sauce and mashed potatoes where all excellent accompaniments. We were too full to order desert, but did appreciate the complimentary piece of cake for the birthday girl. Overall, it lived up to our expectations. It is an expensive outing and there are cheaper options within the Crown Perth complex, but if you feel like a perfect steak, it is the place to go.
