The staff which served us was quite rude to me but provided great service to the rest of the group which i found very odd. We were about 10 minutes late or so and had apologised but there were lots of tables which were free. The staff did not bother to help look at the menu when i ordered and when I couldn't read the word out, he said then we are going to have a problem. It was quite unprofessional and for that kind of service, I wouldn't be returning anytime soon.

Food good as always but service was slow and unfriendly, and music was way too loud in hall, had a sore throat after!
Hey, We are happy that you liked our food again. But we are truly sorry that our service was not on point as it should have been. It is hard to control the volume on a busy game day with 200 people in our venue. Therefore we are really sorry. Please feel free to ask our staff for a quiet table upstairs on your next visit.

The Hof Downtown used to be a wonderful German restaurant with all the traditional favourites. They have greatly reduced their menu size to almost nothing. It’s no longer a place to get good, hearty German food but rather a place for drinks only. If you want more traditional German food in Melbourne I’d suggest going to The Hofbrauhaus and not waste your time with The Hof downtown.
Hey Jasmin, Thanks for coming around at our freshly renovated Hof Downtown. After the flooding accident this year march we decided to renovated our venue and our menu. We want to give our customer a new experience of modern food with a hearty bavarian twist. So we still serve couple of our famous bavarian dishes but we want to bring a new bavarian experience to Melbourne.

Service was slow paying the bill. Was referred to the bar and others waiting to pay were queued which is fine but the bar staff were also serving drinks and other customers. Maybe have a separate area for payment particularly during peak periods. I was there for lunch. Otherwise I would dine there again.

About The Hof Downtown

Bavarian food hall For Bavarian food, Bier, fun and fröhlich, you simply can’t go past the Hof Downtown. Here you will be transported to a Bavarian wonderland where bier flows freely and waiters serve traditional grub, in large portions. Tables are often loaded with red cabbage, sauerkraut, crispy pork belly, bratwurst sausages, potato dumplings, pickles, mash potato, chicken schnitzel and large crispy pork knuckle...and a bier of course. With such an extensive beer list, it’s highly recommended you gulp down a stein with your meal. For those who simply can’t handle oodles of food, there is a Kleine bite menu to suit. So whether you want to gorge or graze, the Hof Downtown is perfect for both. Best dish: bratwurst sausage - German pork sausage with potato mash, sauerkraut and German mustard
