    Food was on point. Caesar salad was so fresh and crisp with perfectly cooked chicken, steaks were very tender and pork belly was delicious. The staff were attentive and very friendly and the coffee is excellent.

    Food is nice & tasty but a bit salty with the risotto ; We also had gnocchi which was done well - soft and tender. Average service. Good for a cafe / restaurant

    Disappointed that the stone grill steak in the menu is not come out with 'stone grill'. The staff said the 'stone grill' only done in the kitchen. That's not what the customer expected. This item should be removed from the menu to avoid misunderstanding to the customer.

    We visited on Wednesday night and we were impressed with everything so we booked again for Saturday night and took friends with us but unfortunately very disappointed in both the service and food was not to the same standard. We were puzzled how a restaurant could be so different in 4 days.

    The staff are always super friendly. Food was tasty, fresh and generous portions. Great coffee!! Only small issue was the crispy pork which was not at all crispy but was still very tasty.

    We both had steak and vegetables. Everything was cooked well. The vegetables got a little cold in waiting for the steak to rest. Something to be mindful of.

    A great local spot that has good service and food. Especially good value with The Fork 30% off food. $10 corkage is a bit steep but I guess they have to make their money. Overall we were very happy with our experience at Short Black.

    Good food with great service. Quiet enough for good catch ups but has enough customers through to maintain a good vibe. Convenient location also.

Best dish: mini chorizo croquettes
