    Nice menu on the pricey side, and you expect a certain ambience and atmosphere to go with that. Unfortunately a bit too noisy for my liking. The duck and pork belly mains were excellent, although could go with a bit more volume in the duck dish.

    The lunch menu was different from what's on their webpage, we ordered spaghetti marinara and was served carbonara. Ok but nothing flash.

    Undortunately several wines on the list were unavailable but my meal was decent though a little over-prices in my opinion.

    I’d been to the restaurant before when it was Benchmark and really enjoyed it, so was really looking forward to trying it again. Unfortunately, the food was just okay, service was patchy at best and rather slow, and the wine list was disappointing. They were happy to split the bill for us though, which was much appreciated.

    Only one waiting staff to service entire restaurant. Only one cook in the kitchen. Waiting time for the main to be served about 45 minutes, The steak dishes were under cooked.

    The tables were full of glass stains - not expected from a restaurant like that.... perhaps a use of table cloth would have been a better option The meals were ok, but not the best we’ve had and a bit pricey with small portion sizes. Waiters were polite and nice but forgot to serve an item we had ordered and the wrong sauce was served on my steak later to be topped with the right one... which made the meal taste funny a bit. Our other dish was served a bit cold. No salt/pepper offered to us either. Inside the restaurant was cold too, I had to wear my scarf half way during our meal.

    Excellent steaks and red wine jus, and the waiting staff catered to dietary requirements wonderfully. Thanks for a nice evening.

    We had the truffle degustation with the matching wines The food was fantastic and the wines were perfectly matched. We've eaten here before and will keep on returning.

    Terrible food. Meant to be a truffle 4 course dinner. Soup was nice but it went down hill. Expensive, bland, fatty. boring words like that come to mind.

    It's been an old favourite for years, first as Benchmark, now as 65 Northbourne. Definitely coming back. Thanks Scotty and Toby, the tradition lives on.

    The espresso bar here has been my go-to favourite coffee stop for months now. They're consistently good and always remember my order, and that's so rare in canberra!
