Work Christmas lunch for 5. All blokes and the steaks 5 out of 5 very good. Bar was a bit busy. I miss the table service. If you have $60 bottle of wine it should be served at the table. Old fashion I know!

It is a great place to catch up with people as near train and tram connections and not far from central Melbourne.

First time for our Xmas lunch as a team and it was a great first time experience and it was discussed we will perhaps book again for 2018. Thanks to your staff as they were extremely friendly and accommodating with our requests.

About Imperial Hotel Bourke St

The place to be seen The Imperial Hotel is a very special place for Melbourne dwellers - not only is it of historical interest, being only the third place in Victoria to gain a liquor licence, but it is a well-loved sporting venue, known for catch ups for those cheering on a team. The facilities are beautiful, new and comfortable, yet still historically significant with all of the charm and ambience of the past. Their menu is tasty with something for everyone, but not so obscure as to frighten away the crowds. As well as the very excellent wood fire pizza, there are staple items such as a Caesar salad, Wagyu beef burgers, pork ribs and fish and chips. Dishes such as mushroom risotto, prawn linguine and a prosciutto chicken are institutions here and they do them well. With 14 beers and ciders on tap this venue is adored by the after-work crowd as well as those needing a favourite watering hole to visit after work. Best dish: USA pork ribs
