Good value. Was a bit loud in the bistro for a sit down dinner. Overall quite good.

The service is good and prompt. The staff are helpful and courteous. Noise level can be a high and annoyed during sport match on the big screen. Sunday evening is my favourite place to have a glass of wine and meal by the window watching the crowd on the street.

Definitely my favourite go to "Lamb" dinner. The Lamb Shoulder is absolutely amazing and when you think you're nearly finished there's more ... it's delicious.

I enjoyed being at the Civic Hotel except that I was extremely uncomfortable on the high stools. There were no alternatives other than perching on top of an uncomfortable stool. The lower half of my entire body was numb after the first five minutes, and we were there for an hour and a half. I could have cried. Doesn't matter how good the food or service, I was almost crying in pain.

For a group of 18 we were served within 10 minutes of ordering and the place was packed. Service is always friendly and quick. The lamb is always just amazing and definitely a favourite.

We had a business lunch with a client there. The food was great and there are many choices of beer on tab. One of the great clubs in CBD.

Good pub food in a pub environment. Portions are generous but a little on the pricey end. Recommended for a quick lunch.

Arrived 6pm bar full, noise deafening, dining area next to the bar. Had to leave as any conversation was impossible.
