    What a great new venue for Geelong. Beautiful venue with great atmosphere, I honestly couldn’t fault the setting. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Limited menu of small share plates but what we had was super delicious. 10/10 venue. I will be back... many more times no doubt

    Amazing atmosphere and all the interior details. Definitely a blend of a bar and restaurant, but background music so the focus was on the food and drink. Portion sizes for some meals were quite small for the cost. The quality was good. The polenta dish was absolutely amazing. But the chips were fairly average, would of been good to see some rustic hand cut fries. Chicken was an extremely small portion for the cost, beans were an interesting combination with the dill and middle eastern spices. Sourdough and zealy bay butter were delicious! Excellent wine selection. Overall a lovely night for a dinner out in Geelong.

    The Arborist is a gorgeous newcomer to the Geelong scene. The design and decor is really lovely - modern, fresh and different to much of what is around. Food is a share style. Mixture of small, medium and large plates. Really nice food and friendly knowledgeable staff who deliver great service. It’s quickly becoming a local and a personal favourite. Totally recommend this one.

    This little restaurant was a great find. Nice space, great location. Loved the food, but maybe the menu could extend to a few more dishes over time. Super drinks list though!!! Good service, reasonable prices. We'll be going back for sure

    Food, service and atmosphere were all excellent. Only complaint would be the order of share plates coming out. Sides, I feel, would have been better coming out with other dishes, not right at the end. Sides of chips and green beans at the end of the meal seemed an odd choice. All food was delicious.
