    Had my daughter's birthday with family lovely restaurant with wonderful ambience and superb water views we found the food to be from good to very good depending on what was ordered wait between course was slow but we didn't mind entrees very small for price but mains were a good size and very flavoursome deserts were excellent theirs was 9 in our group and we all said that we would come back. PS very good live music on Sunday s.

    Beautiful waterfront restaurant with amazing views of the bay. The Staff were very welcoming and provided great table service. The food was amazing especially the eye fillet and pepper sauce. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to family and friends ????

    The food tasted wonderful, the guitar player was brilliant, the service although polite and friendly was very slow. I think this may have been due to the chef and bar tender being understaffed. All in all we had a lovely afternoon with beautiful views.

    Great to book with TheFork, great confirmation and staff at the Waterfront were very quick, professional and kind, especially Mandy our waitress for the night, exceptional customer service and professional attire, manners that were kind. The music at the restaurant was great to have live music and a great musician, well done and from last time we visited in 2017, it's a massive change to the food, venue and people. The food is much better, more value and tasty and fresh. Thank you :)

    Perfect night out! Had the seafood platter for four and it was AMAZING! I even got to meet the chef and had to tell her how awesome it was. The atmosphere was great and all basically on the water . Perfect couples night with our best friends. Checked out the function space for our wedding ... WHAT A VIEW! 10/10

    Very basic menu for an exclusive seafood restaurant, no live seafood, oyster kilpatrick was like some open a jar of bbq sauce and just dumped it and bacon was minimal. Very disappointing and not like it used to be

    We arrived on time @our table & requested a move as we were directly across from a very loud band. Our Entree took 1 hour to arrive & it was ok -probably too big but ok nonetheless. Then our main course took another 85 minutes & after numerous requests as to what was happening. MyCordon Bleu was extremely large & was luke warm @ best. My partner’s barramundi was ok -other than it had no sauce with it - she adapted by using some of the sauce from my Cordon Bleu. We then left - not waiting for our deserts . The manager in fairness reduced our bill by $ 99.50 ( I person ) albeit we did not request a. Discount. The music was quite good albeit far too loud for a relatively small room. What should have been a highlight to finish off 2020 was a great disappointment

    An unmitigated disaster from go-to-whoa and only got worse the longer we stayed. The barrage of confirmation requests in lead up to booking (two emails and two texts, which persisted even after confirmation had been sent) should’ve tipped us off. First up: our party of two were shown to a table for six, and asked when the others would be joining us (Um, no. We booked for two.) A simple enough mistake. What’s immediately apparent is that this place is a far, far cry from the fine dining experience it bills itself as. Take, for instance, the gaping hole in the ceiling exposing air conditioning apparatus that proceeded to drip on us during the entree. The food is middling to poor. To put it in my partner’s words: his salmon main was much worse than a pub meal in Bendigo - and twice as expensive. The crab arancini starter seemed straight from the freezer. Service was unremarkable, if inoffensive. The piece de resistance came when we went to pay our bill. Despite being advertised on the Restaurant Choice website, we were told we weren’t able to use our Restaurant Choice voucher because “that was the old owners and we’ve asked to be taken off that site”. Eventually staff relented when we explained it was how we decided to eat at their establishment and deducted value of our gift voucher from total. And then, to top it off, they tried charging us for $100 of the neighboring tables’ meals! Little sympathy and not much of an apology. Avoid at all costs this hot mess of an overpriced and disorganized eatery.

    I booked this restaurant based on the google reviews. It clearly these were from pre-COVID and most likely under the previous management. The Christmas Day set menu was not cheap at $149 per person but I was happy to pay it knowing the extra staffing costs on a public holiday. From the moment we walked in the door the service was poor. I would be embarrassed if I owned this place as the staff were poorly trained and no leadership was on display. The food was mediocre and, for the price of the menu, I would have expected much better. I had recently been at a water front restaurant in St Kilda and the comparison was chalk and cheese. I will never go back to Waterfront and I most certainly will not be recommending it to anyone. They couldn’t even get the basics right. 0.5 stars out of 5 and that was really just for the view. The musicians were also good singers so that was pleasant.

    Booked a table for 5 by window, and was seated at table for 7 in middle of room. Questioned this & was moved to a private room. Took an hour to get water on table & a look at wine list. Meals were so slow in arriving, and plates not collected. We were starving after 2 hours. Only received entree. Asked for bread, as we were so hungry. Wines requested not available, and no toilet paper in bathrooms. Absolutely shocking, and so disappointed. Don’t bother.

    This is the worst service I have ever experienced ever at this Waterfront restaurant at my age we are very disappointed !! 12pm booking on Christmas Day currently still waiting for a main meal at 2.06pm We waited 1 hour for a drink then 15 mins later our entree to arrive 4 staff waitressing and running the bar and it’s not that busy in the restaurant Phone call from you to pre order our meals 3 days before the day and then to be asked by the waiter what our order is not once but 3 times ... I can't believe he couldn't comprehend our basic meal order Very very unhappy and disappointed for Xmas lunch and the most awful experience at any restaurant I have ever been to

    We unfortunately didn’t have the best experience which was a shame as the location is fantastic and the staff were friendly. We completely understand that it was a busy night with functions but the length of time we had to wait for our food was excessive. We were a party of 6. Our reservation was at 7:30pm, with our order taken around 8:30pm but we did not get our food until 10:10pm. It would have been nice to have received some complimentary snacks while we had to wait (we did get one bread roll at about 9:00). When the food arrived it wasn’t great especially for the price. On leaving we did provide the feedback of our disappointment and we were told that we would be getting a discount off our bill to compensate which we thought was very fair although when looking at the receipt the discount was not the amount they had said it was to be. Although probably won’t be booking again anytime soon, it would be interesting to see how a experience would be if it wasn’t a busy night.

    We were a group of 6. The main meals were not served at the same time. We were disappointed with the quality of the food. Our table was also delivered food that didn’t belong to us. The service was slow. We were told the restaurant was hosting a function upstairs and it seemed the focus was on the function and not our table.

    The restaurant is beautifully positioned and lovely ambience. The food on the other hand was not what you would expect from a restaurant at these prices. We were in a function room but weren’t attended to as expected. I tried this place last week and provided feedback then, I thought I to would give them another go as they had a function on last week and said that was why the service was slow. Was disappointed again.

    Great food again! Christmas office lunch recently and the staff were lovely. Food was a little slow to come out for the mains. That was our only concern but otherwise a great meal.

    This is a FABULOUS venue in every way! From arrival to departure, the staff are professional in service with sparkly warmth of personality that really enriches patrons' dining experience there. The food is absolutely delicious (the seafood platter is like no other!) and portions generous. The venue itself is spacious and the luxurious decor with great space for dancing and entertainment combines with the magnificent pier views to create such a sense of extravagant living - one is enticed to return for more! ????
