    Fantastic Vegan 5-course tasting menu with strong Asian flavours. I particularly like the Mirin broth as well as the rice-roll dish. Very successful fusion of flavours using only plant-based ingredients.

    Contrary to some earlier comments we find this place the perfect fine dining place -refined food served within a simple but vibrant and joyous atmosphere.

    Fabulous meal and service. Dim lighting was a bit of a disappointing aspect. More light needed to read menus. Service was friendly and professional

    The food was beautifully presented, elegant and tasty, even though portions were small in size. Service was attentive , and wines were expensive but of good quality. Will definitely return .

    I would have given this place 5 stars for the last time we visited. This time however I can only give 3.5/5. It was reasonably quiet on a Friday night but the wait times between the meals was too long. Especially for a restaurant of this caliber. The wait for dessert was so long even the waitress apologised when she brought it out. Staff were friendly enough but I felt they lacked attentiveness compared to our last visit. Our glasses were empty at times. We both agreed that the serving sizes appeared smaller, the last time I was so full I could barely walk out. This time I was still hungry. Ordered an espresso at the end of the night that went to the wrong table. No big deal but for a restaurant of this caliber it’s not good enough. Fee as though the standards have slipped.

    Atmosphere dull and uninspiring, so I thought maybe it's just about the food. The gin and tonic we ordered cost $26 each, just the basic gin, mind you. Entree ok, quite tasty. Had to ask for some bread though, told it was being baked. Three glasses of house wine cost $97. Water served was tepid. Main courses both average. Wagyu fillet tender but no flavour, served with two sprigs of broccoli, some minute potato concoction, my partner had Murray cod, totally bland was his comment. Quite underwhelmed with the Ezard experience. Way over the top expensive, won't be in a hurry to return.

    The food, the environment and the staff could not have been better. We had a very good time and the staff independently draw a happy birthday to my partner’s plate, so nice of them. The only thing that I’d personally didn’t like so much was a bit of extra hot spice in one of the vegetarian 5 course dishes

    Excellent meal and ambience. I felt a bit more personal service could have been offered, particularly around the wine selection.

    I enjoyed the flavors of each dish they presented for the 7-course that I have chosen. Food was very well thought out and presentation was top! Non-alcoholic beverages were good as well. Favorites included the Steamed king prawn dumpling, Eight score Sher wagyu, and Pork belly. With Pork belly coming in first, the Steamed king prawn dumpling second, and Eight score Sher wagyu last. I wish we got the Dark chocolate bar instead of the dessert tasting plate to share. It was delightful. Service was alright. It was the food that made the place. Sound acoustics of the place isn't good. If it's packed, the chatter reverberates so if you want an intimate dining, best to go when it's not a weekend or when it's packed. We went on a Friday night which explains the crunch time. I'd go back for an ala carte - mainly the Pork belly and Dark chocolate bar. :) Thanks to the team for putting "Congratulations" on the dessert plate for my engagement. That was a lovely touch to end the evening! Cheers!

About the restaurant

Squirreled away under the Adelphi, this basement-based stayer is the epitome of smooth. From the greeting at the door to the soft-furnished dining rooms, just-so lighting and muffled steps of waiters on carpet, it's cushy and cosseting and eminently comforting to sup under the ezard below-stairs roof. Guests are invited to indulge in Teage Ezard's acclaimed ‘Australian freestyle’ cuisine in a variety of ways: from a weekday express lunch or pre-theatre dinner, to an eight course tasting menu replete with fastidiously sourced wines to match.
