    The steak I had for lunch fell a little short of the usual high quality food i am used to receiving when i go there ... it was good, but not great.

    Not as good as it used to be. The steak wasn't bad, bit chewy but nice charred flavor. The cauliflower side dish was too firm and the sauce very average white sauce with no flavor. The most disappointing was the sauce (that you pay extra for) - we both ordered Bearnaise which is normally a superb sauce with steak but it came out a milky, runny excuse for a sauce, they replaced it with a mushroom sauce which was sweet, runny and worse than the bearnaise. You would think that an establishment that is meant to be known for their steaks would try a little harder with the sauces that go with them - not really a big ask I wouldn't have thought - especially when you are paying for them. It is like they are trying to make the sauces go further by watering them down but come on, how much are you really saving? False ecomony. I don't think I will bother with another visit, just average for the prices asked.

    Expensive at $100 a head but SO worth it. You get what you pay for and both our meals were first class !!! We had boerewors and haloumi to start followed by a steak each. I had a fillet - the best ever - cooked to perfection and SO tasty, the basting taste is great. Service was amazing. Only criticism would be that the tables upstairs are close together so not terribly private for talking. We will be back for the next special occasion. Thanks so much !!

    Food was fantastic but service was really poor, took 20 mins for someone to take our orders, over half an hour to clear the table and offer desserts

    The quality of the food has significantly declined. Our meal was very average and probably something you could pick up in a pub. We just paid double the amount you would for it in a pub.

    Hi Meat & Wine Co Hawthorn East, Thanks greatly for the service last night. This is the third time I have been to Meat & Wine Co, and on every occasion I have left feeling satisfied with the service provided. I left a $10 tip last night, which reiterates my satisfaction with the Meat & Wine Co. Keep up the great work.

    Unfortunately our latest visit to the meat and wine co. was not a pleasant experience which was really disappointing as every other time we have gone there it has been really good. Problems in the kitchen and poorly cooked steaks, hopefully just an off night and not a regular occurrence

About the restaurant

Paddock to plate Popping up out of the old English, Scottish and Australia bank, a heritage-listed beauty on Camberwell junction, The Meat & Wine Co of East Hawthorn offer up a sophisticated steakhouse dining experience in the heart of old Melbourne. This one’s for the serious meat lover, with all the classic steak and rib options on offer. The Portuguese prawns and beef Carpaccio are good starters but it’s when the short rib steak arrives before you, having slow cooked for eight hours, you know they mean business. So serious are the folks at The Meat & Wine Co about their dishes, that beef is sourced exclusively from Monte Beef, the producers of some of Australia’s finest Angus Beef. A gorgeous range of sauces will keep even the biggest sceptic in check (watch out for that African Hot Chilli), and there’s plenty more alternatives on the menu too, such as their lamb shanks, flame-grilled skewers and even kangaroo – why not? And with three more locations on the east coast, this swish, modern take on the humble steakhouse is catching on. Best dish: short rib steak
