Station Hotel

Footscray

Jeremy dined on Sun, 9th Sep 2018 (9)

After a sharp drop off in quality, service and options for the last few years, The Station Hotel is back to all it's former glory. Can confidently put the "Best Steak in the West" banner back up!

Fantastic as usual. From greeting to end it's always a pleasure having lunch at this wonderful restaurant.

Been having dinner at The Station Hotel for a very long time with both friends and family and whilst things have changed the one constant is that you're always greeted well when first arriving. Whilst the staff attentiveness and friendly service seems to be getting back on par it's unfortunate I can't say the same about the food. The scallop entrée was lukewarm (at best), I prefer to eat bread that has been handled with a teatowel or glove while being cut (that's a personal preference) but largely I would really like for my steak to be still hot when it reaches the table and the chips to be crispy. Instead what I got was a less than warm piece of meat and cold soft chips. But did it still taste good? Yes it did. So all up I've come to this conclusion...I'm not expecting it to be the same as the many years I have been going to The Station under previous management. I understand change of ownership can bring change of it's own and that's why comparisons aren't needed here. All that's needed is consistency, just the consistency of a quality product that has been lacking the last 3 times I have been there. This isn't about money spent, what the prices are or if they've changed, I'm happy to pay anything (even ridiculous prices) for a quality product. So treating my former local with fresh eyes and after giving it so many chances in the last year I will have to bid it farewell from me but all the best to the new clientele it is looking to ingratiate itself to. P.S - Has any of the above been mentioned before? The answer is yes!

Consistently excellent. From greeting to end their service is impeccable. Ten Minutes by Tractor is one of Victoria's fine establishments to drive and dine at, well worth the praises and awards it receives and should continue to receive. Definetely a must do!

Steak not cooked rare but close enough. Smoked filled the dining room when the grill was being used heavily. Service was pleasant from the staff who you can see are still getting over the initial post renovation hiccups. All in all, still a good local and although a little less precise than before I'm sure that with some time it will be back to the high level local standard we have all become used to and want back.

Great to see the menu change, the Dory was fantastic! Just a standout, cooked and presented perfectly. Service ha slipped a little from the first times we have been having lunch here but this won't be too much a deterrent as they were doing their very best in such a full environment. A beautifully laid out bistro environment in relaxed surrounds and the drive from Melbourne to Red Hill and back just adds to the day. Well done as always!!

Sixpenny

Stanmore

Jeremy dined on Fri, 10th Jun 2016 (10)

A truly hidden neighbourhood gem! Everything about Sixpenny is just right. Fabulous staff, fabulous food and fabulous atmosphere. Small, compact, friendly and professional, what else would you want? Perfect date place. Stanmore certainly has a special one here!

Ten Minutes by Tractor

Always fantastic. Everything about it is always fantastic.

Ten Minutes by Tractor

Main Ridge

Jeremy dined on Sat, 23rd Apr 2016 (9)

What a wonderful place. The atmosphere, the food, the staff. One of those special places above many others that try and do the same thing. Ten Minutes by Tractor is "must do" and worth all of the continued accolades.

Petit Tracteur

Main Ridge

Jeremy dined on Sat, 26th Mar 2016 (9)

Perfect way to spend a long weekend lunch and the staff just make the place. Atmosphere is always welcoming, staff are friendly, helpful and obliging and the food is perfect for the area. This is our second time and there will certainly be a third very soon!

Jack Rabbit Vineyard

Bellarine

Jeremy dined on Mon, 14th Mar 2016 (5)

Jack Rabbit Restaurant is a place that has an unbelievable view and I would think the consistency of patronage is heavily leveraged from that and not come much the quality of the food. In saying that, the JR Pinot Noir is a standout and the service extremely pleasant. With menus typically designed for a volume service, slight downfalls are noticeable in quality and presentation. With such a glorious location eye for detail in restaurant cleanliness outside and line of sight views (hillside shed has chairs and other bits thrown into it in full view) correcting small things like this would elevate it to being a truly wonderful place and not one that, only in my view, rests on its laurels of a fabulous outlook. That being said, I cannot fault the waitstaff or the wines. A return product, possibly not for me but a captive market it will always hold due to its surrounds.

Petit Tracteur

Main Ridge

Jeremy dined on Sat, 27th Feb 2016 (9)

Not disappointed at all. Cozy, intimate, great feel. Complimentary wine list and excellent food. Great atmosphere as soon as you walk in. Definitely be going back and telling anyone I know about it.

Oakridge

Coldstream

Jeremy dined on Sat, 6th Feb 2016 (9)

Staff were just fantastic. Both professional and knowledgeable. Food was excellent, not overstated or over worked, produce spoke for itself. Just lovely. Certainly one of the preferred YV restaurants and it's easy to see why!

Station Hotel

Footscray

Jeremy dined on Wed, 13th Jan 2016 (7)

Service and food slightly off from the last 8 years of patronage. This has happened noticeably since the change of hands and I have been back 3 times since then. All aspects I'm sure will be fixed in time but not as eager to go back or refer as once was. I'm hopeful that these small things can be rectified soon.
