    The grilled calamari was pretty good. The lamb cutlets we're really nice but sadly the pork chop was disappointing, lacked the wood fire taste and lacked taste overall. The onion rings and potato bits were way over salted and felt like I was swalling sea water. We decided to go with the cheesecake for dessert was was truly disappointed with how it came out. Didn't look like a cake at all, more like a tart. It also didn't taste well. The surcharge on Sundays is ridiculous. Overall 3/5. Probably come won't back. A bit overpriced, but maybe we didn't order the right food.

    We had a top night at Rockpool for my birthday. It was the first time I brought my sons there and they loved it. I have started something now introducing them to good food & a great a atmosphere. Stef our waitress was excellent.

    It’s ok but nothing special , I just expect more from a restaurant with such a good name as Rockpool, it doesn’t have any WOW factor !!

    Extremely disappointing evening with very poor service and average food. The tortellini was served cold and the portion size was small considering we upgraded to a main size serving.

    Lamb loin chops were very disappointing. Service was disappointing as well - not asked even 1 time if we were happy with everything etc. Wouldn’t recommend or race back.

    Amazing, great quality food would definitely recommend. The service staff were very friendly and were constantly checking up to ensure that we were satisfied - the short rib is a must try

    I always thought Rockpool was seafood inclined but it's steak based. I had recently had the most sensational steak at a placed called Stone Grill at Jervis Bay at $35 which was fantastic, the steak at Rockpool at $74 was tough, thin and nothing special. The sides were brilliant and would have been happy with just those $22 plus so they should be). The Calamari was tough as an entree, petite fours were also very good. I have always thought Rockpool very expensive and it is.. Service great but food so many others do it well for alot less

    The greeting at the door was fantastic but after that service and food were pretty disappointing. What should be one of our premier dining destinations in Melbourne is just way over priced. it was disappointing to watch chefs lean around in the kitchen when you charge the prices you do for your food. 4 less staff in the kitchen and perhaps my daughters $65 eye fillet steak would only need to be $50!!!! Your chefs must remember they are on display in an open kitchen. You have too many bludgers in there. I hate reviewing like this as I own restaurants as well. But hopefully you can return to your glory days with some open and honest feedback.

    Bread was stale. Steak was full of gristle and served on its own without any sides. Pasta dish was not listed on the menu as an entree serve. The main was the size of an entree at many other restaurants. What was once a great place to dine is now average at best.

    We had a great table by the window, service was attentive and foods were nicely done. Beef tar tar was great so as t-borne steak. I was expecting small portion (typical time high end restaurant) but serving was generous too. Highly recommended!

    Beautiful food, amazing setting, service was better than average but not really aligned to the quality of this establishment. We ate our dinner with no drinks due to the slow pace of service.
