The staff were friendly but there was some inconsistency with how they approached the table. After ordering, we were told multiple times that certain items weren't available and had to reorder. This was okay, but different waiters would come up and be confused as to what was going on which resulted in us having to explain the situation again and again. The charcuterie board, cheese and wine were amazing as well as the salmon but the lamb tasted a little burnt. The cheesecake we ordered did not specify it had nuts, however it did. Slightly careless on my part not to ask but I'm allergic to nuts and it caused discomfort. The waitress was apologetic and removed the wine from the bill which was nice, but certain things about this experience make me sceptical about returning.

First time dining there. Sorry to see the short of floor staff running around forgetting orders! No free bread rolls & butter with main course we had to pay for it. We ordered bread rolls & butter for $4 together with entrees and we finished our entrees and our bread hasn’t arrived! We had to ask twice to remind the waitress as she kept forgetting. Eventually the bread arrived which consist of 2 tiny mini round rolls & one se be of butter & that’s $4! After main we asked for desert menu, some warm water which the waitress kindly obliged, however nothing to be seen & we had to keep chasing them & remind them to bring the desert menu, after ordering desert, waited almost 30min but nothing arrived, we asked another waiter who told us the desert wasn’t put thru yet! Again aked for a share cutlery for the desert but never arrive, I had to go personally to help myself with the cutlery, get my own bill. Nice restaurant & beatifully decorates but pity the service is lacking as everyone works under the pump & only 2 chefs cooking everything for the entire restaurant! If the boss is hoping to save some $$ from labour the service level is going to be compromised unfortunately! Will I be back? Absolutely NO!!

it's not cheap but it's worth it. as the name suggests, you really need to order steak of some sort (although their veggie dishes are also full of flavour and texture!) Divine steak cooked perfectly. Also, if you're two or three then book a stool at the kitchen bar to watch the chefs cook (and they may throw you a morsel or two to taste!). great vibe.

The steak here was amazing and cooked to perfection. Cured trout delicious! Staff were friendly and professional. We'll definitely be back.

If not for the 50% off food special would have been even more disappointed. Having the oysters to start - awesome...as were the other entrees. The "common" calamari one of the best I've had. Sadly the fish was the nicest of the Meat. I asked twice if I ordered my $65 500gm porterhouse medium rare, it would be medium rare...they even spend half a page in the menu explaining the cooking temperature. Guess what - it was closer to medium well. No offer to replace. Sadly, just another eatery along this expensive SouthBank/Wharf area that cant get an expensive steak cooked right. Better stick to the suburbs where parking is free.

Steaks were good but not best given the competition, interesting and yummy sides, disappointing service, had a discount so felt good value but would have thought disappointing if we had paid full price.
