Food was fantastic and service was excellent, can’t wait to go there again. Definitely try the kingfish crudo, it was delicious. Great wine list as well.
Service was slow, the food was fine, but not remarkable, the wagu was cool when served. I suspect service was delayed due to a private event at the same venue.
Great Restaurant with exceptional service and food quality.
Delicious! A party if four, two had the Sunday roast of chicken and two a la carte, all of us thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The Sunday roast is great value. Service is attentive, friendly and seamless.
Chef Patron, Scott Pickett, practices what he preaches in his most recent cookbook, Marriage of Flavours. This is a menu that matches the seasons and in this case, it's most definitely spring on a plate. The freshness and bursts of green open with delicate pea falafels on yoghurt with fresh broad beans pea velouté and continue with a dish that's now in my top 5 Pickett dishes: grilled barramundi garnished with the freshest garden of spring's finest; a fine dice of capsicum, onion, pea, green olive and delicate zucchini rounds with their flowers, tiny morsels of prawn... served on a slick of pea puree. It was incredible and memorable. If you're a northside local, you're very lucky to have The Estelle in your hood and if you're southside, this is well worth the trip over the Yarra.
A Northcote gem!
Consistently good, every time!
This time tied the Degustation and matching wines - the team took us on a great journey with matches we had not tried before - and both food and wine were excellent - flavours started from subtle, ending with fantastic richness of the Wagyu
Main issue was that the restaurant was so noisy couldn’t hear the person next to me. To spend $90 a head for that experience not value. Won’t be back
The food and wine is excellent. The service in the bar on arrival could improve - we were left waiting for our table and then offered seats at the bar despite booking a table at a specific time. The matter was resolved and didn’t at all spoil the night but attention to details is needed.
Delicious food served in a modern and innovative way without being too showy. I would consider committing a crime to eat the crab mornay again, it was amazing! :) The Waiting service was good without being particularly warm or personal although I did get a detailed description from the head chef about how to correctly make a pavlova ( i have been doing it wrong all this time!) I needed to correct the bill in their favour at the end of the night but that was ok too. All in all a terrific evening!
Didn’t enjoy the dinner at all
Lovely lunch here with great service and ambience, definitely coming back for another indulgence!
Food was outstanding. Unfortunately the service was terrible. We were often left with empty water and wine glasses having to ask for both. Staff were literally running at some points and forgot what dish they were serving us. I’d still go back for the food and hope the service improves.
The Sunday roasts are amazing, and such brilliant value!
Not impressed with the food or the service.
Very enjoyable experience. The food and service were outstanding. The wine list seemed impressive but I was slightly put off not being able to enjoy a glass of bubbles for under $20.
great local gem
Service was shocking and made the rest of the experience disappointing. We went for the Sunday roast which was really nice food however we were rushed through the meal, the dishes weren't described and it wasn't clear what we were eating. Based on this I wouldn't recommend.
Few teething issues with new wait staff and run out of one of the beers we requested, overall though very good. Food exceptional.
