$5 per slice of sourdough, which was served cold and dry. Portion is generally small and priced at premium.

First time and will definitely be there again. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. A nice change from other venues to have food on the table so quickly after ordering.
Hi there Bob, thanks for coming in and hope you enjoyed your nice Chef's Table near the woodfire oven. Lovely to hear you two enjoyed yourselves and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

pro: clean, well-prepared, quality food. con: poor value/overpriced. Limited menu is fine however the choices for a main of $56 or $98 (sharable, but still...) left a lot to be desired.
Hi there and many thanks for leaving some feedback. Since you have been in we have in fact added some more medium sized mail meals on the menu, which are delicious. We source all our product from local and ethical producers and they are very fresh. We keep our options limited so we can reflect the best quality produce, and also aim to give generous servings which are a fair reflection of the market price.

Menu selection is significantly smaller than previously. Portion sizes were adequate. Service was great. The first wine purchased was slightly off. It was replaced without fuss. The service was clearly the highlight of our meal. Unfortunately there was a large party seated beside us who were very noisy.
Hi there, and many thanks for taking time out to leave us some feedback. You are correct, the menu has been reduced but rest assured we will be continually adding to it, bringing back some of the old favourites, and adding some new and exciting dishes to the menu. As for the service, we are glad you enjoyed it so much and look forward to taking care of you again when you are in next, and hopefully recommending you some new and interesting dishes to try. Have a nice evening.

Best spit roast chicken
Hi there, glad to hear you enjoyed the spit roasted chicken - our signature dish. It's a really nice way to warm up and fill up during these winter months. Next time you could try the t-bone which is also mouthwatering. Hope to see you again soon.

I was a big fan of Kitchen by Mike at Rosebery. Great to see it reborn in the City. Love the food and philosophy behind it. Attentive and genial service. Thank you
Hi there, and thanks for your kind words. Was a pleasure to host you last night and we can't wait to see you back again. You should pop in and visit us for a breakfast service if you are around the city in the mornings. Have a great weekend, Julia.
