The ambience was pleasant and the dining area has a warm, welcoming feel. Service was attentive but rather curt - bordering on unfriendly. It took us all quite aback. There also an exceptionally long wait time. We had a lovely time nonetheless and enjoyed our meals.
The staff were very good, no waiting for anything. The meals are on the pricier side for a hotel but it is a little more up market. Good size portions. My husband loved the gnocchi.
The food and service were first class. The sardines entree was the best and the steak main was cooked to perfection. The staff made us feel at home and really looked after us. Highly recommended.
I absolutely love this place!!! I live in Sydney and whenever I'm in Melbourne I always try to make it to O'Connell's. A hidden gastro pub that has amazing food, exceptional service and all in all a great vibe. It never lets you down and I can't wait to revisit again on my return trip to Melbourne.... sooner rather than later!! Bravo O'Connell's
Staff were fantastic great atmosphere
Great food and service as always!
Visited for the Spring launch, Saturday afternoon. A good idea and well put together, pity the weather didn't cooperate. Was an enjoyable afternoon.
great service, food as always was wonderful
I had been told about the great $20 pie and drink deal on a Tuesday at O'Connell's. I didn't realise that the Beef and Guinness pie would be so good!! Definitely not your standard pub pie. Great customer service too. I will be back.
Been coming here for many years, and always a reliable experience. Perfect blend of classy and casual
Dinner with group of friends. All meals very good, arrived together. Enjoyable evening.
A regular dinner spot for us that's always good.
Always a good night, never dissapoints
Delicious food - very happy
Always a great meal. Love this restaurant. It has character and style. Highly recommend it to anyone.
The food and service are great. That’s why we keep coming back.
Lovely pub in a quite street. Great service and the food always impresses.
Back to its original standard after a bit of a fall. Would recommend for lunch with friends.
Lovely ambience, great service, wonderful play for long lunch. Prices for some meals expensive Would recommend
Great service& wine list . "traditional roast chicken" pink inside and seared/grilled with some boiled potatoes and a hand full of peas. My husband asked for his steak med/well done and we overheard the chef mocking his request as we were seated in front of the kitchen. He only ate half of his meal as did I. We did not choose to complain as it was very busy . O'Connells as we have known it over our many decades of visitation has changed and not for the better.
