    There was far too much salt in the mussel stew. The sashimi was a little stringy (though kingfish & tuna was fine). Below it's normal excellent cooking for these dishes.

    This is now becoming a favourite restaurant of mine, having celebrated two birthdays there. The steaks are cooked with perfection and also the servings of the sides are very large and fulfilling. The staff are wonderful and always provide a high level of service that makes it a comfortable dining experience.

    There are so many other restaurants I would go to in melbourne over this one. The food is nice but the setting is awful. I really don’t like anything located near the casino and it is a big restaurant akin to sitting at a food hall. If you want somewhere intimate and nice stay away from this one.

    Always a wonderful dining experience. Food is exceptional, service, second to none. Drinks prices are a little on the high side, but otherwise you can't fault The Rockpool. One of my favourite Melbourne restaurants.

    Overall experience was great. The two let downs of the night were our main waitress who was quite rude (clothing was in black). However all waiters in white clothing provided exceptional service. So it was a real shame that service wasn't consistent in all staff. We also ordered a pork chip dish, and I had found one section of the pork that was raw. I alerted the waitress in the black clothing/dress, who showed this to another waiter, and then returned saying it was the fatty bit so it wasn't cooked properly. I found this not to be a valid excuse to serve raw food to customers, and especially based on the standards of Rockpool. The dish was not replaced nor any discounts taken off the bill, despite being served raw food.

    The staff was not serving well and the food was not delicious either. We ordered the king white geogre fillet which is meant not to have bone with it however there was still hips on bones inside it. We couldnt finish off

    The manager there with a pronounced moustache was standing over a young woman who was clearly only just starting with them. She got a little confused with the order but quickly sorted it out. The manager was standing in the background “glaring as her”. Just after our order was delivered and we commenced eating we saw the woman walking past the outside of the restaurant in tears. When we questioned him he was rude, dismissive and actually swore at us. I will never return and encourage anyone who thinks that bullies should not be in the workplace should also boycott the venue. To the young woman who served us. You did a wonderful job. Keep your chin up. Unfortunately you had a bully as a manager and Rockpool is clearly not a supportive environment in which to work.

    Great high end restaurant, the meal was nice too. Although the entree I wanted already sold out by 7pm, so was a little disappointed. The service was good. Not sure I would say I would go back any time soon though.

    Look. It’s Rockpool so it’s not going to be awful but if the test for a restaurant is ”would I return?” It’s a no. Food was good, service was ok (although there’s nothing like saying whoops sorry the bar is closed whilst taking drinks orders from the next door big table to annoy), venue is quite cool. But for the hefty price tag there are better options in Melbourne.

    The atmosphere was alright, a bit too dark for pur liking. Service was standard but most disappointed with the food quality. I had quail for entree which was really salty and tangy. We had the steaks for main with side dishes. Steak was cooked perfectly BUT was very salty also.

    Rockpool has always been my favourite place to enjoy a wonderful experience and top quality service. The atmosphere is perfect with soft lighting elegant entrance and well placed seating with views of Melbourne , river and sidewalk views. On arrival the staff greeting is warm and sincere Unfortunately the experience is not the same standards with the table staff who I find have been quite rude at times ,clumsy, unprofessional and lack of attention to detail. The additional mustard selections that are available you have to ask for so if you don’t know of this pls ask as it adds that special flavour to a Wagyu medium rare . So the experience I have been introduced to some years ago has now slipped to a low and those special touches leave you at the front entrance. On a high note the wine selection has not faulted, so I would request if your struggling some advice from the Sommelier which will suggest and nice wine with your table order. Request the Sommelier through your waiter or you will not have that offering. I m not a critic nor wish to be .I expect a dinning experience that I’ve been used too for so many years there and I have always respected Rockpool and the time has come to speak up so pls experience Rockpool it has much to offer and deserves the continued to be up there in a fine dining experience.

    Fantastic evening! Amazing food and fantastic service!! The fillet I had was the best piece of steak I’ve ever eaten and all the sides were superb. Desserts were not quite as amazing, a bit standard, but still nice of course. Drink list was a little $$$ with a glass of wine around $20 and a beer $12. Looking forward to going again on another special occasion.

    Waitress and waiter just walk past you even when you are trying to flag them down. Asked 3 waitresses and all unable to recommend any dish and all said “they are all good, depend on what you feel like” Every staff seem to not want to be there even at the cashier. Meat Wine and Co down the road is way better with excellent service and food.
