was a good range of different types of food on the menu. would like it if a little less expensive
Service was fantastic you have an amazing staff on board A+. Corn fritters are the best - thank you
Two of our sparkling wine choices weren’t in stock. Caesar salad and chicken salads were delicious. Pork belly was incredibly salty but really impressed to be given 50% discount on that when mentioned it to staff.
Dear Basalt another lovely lunch date for us, thank you. And bigger thanks for allowing us to come in well before your noon opening. My fault entirely for not realising that you are closed before then. Lovely meal, service and nice spot by the window. Merry Xmas to you all.
We were served by Kat, who was the redeeming feature of our experience. I ordered scallops and my colleague ordered a Chicken burger ... both the chicken and the scallops were murdered ! The chicken was so dry, it was hard to tell it was chicken. We did ensure we told Kat, so that the chef would know. The Great service means that I would try them again, just in case it was a bad day in the kitchen for the chef and maybe the next visit will be an improvement.
Great service and good value for money!
Great food and service - thanks!
Incredibly loud the day we dined
Good atmosphere to catch up with friends.
Basalt is a great place to be and their food & drink is top notch. Awesome staff with great customer service. Bottomless is always a good time too.
Thank you Price for taking the time to leave us with a review ! We are so glad you enjoy bottomless mimosas as much as we do ! Look forward to seeing you again soon.
Great food and service even on a very busy night.
Thanks for spending Midnight madness with us at Basalt ! Look forward to seeing you again soon !
Always good service
Thank you Anabelle for taking the time to leave us with your feedback. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Great service and delicious food
Thanks Rebecca, we are glad you love the new menu as much as we do ! Look forward to seeing you again soon.
Disappointed the stone grill has gone. Mains took an age to come out even though the restaurant was only 20-25% full. Overall a good dining experience.
I had the chicken burger with dorito shell. It added no flavour to the chicken, which was very dry and flavourless. Without the burger sauce the meat would be inedible. Another diner at my table said her salmon meal was drenched in too much oil. Also the water had a very ‘chemical’ taste to it b
Brought my friend over from Melbourne here for a Bottomless Brunch. Amazing food & service.. and bevvys!
Food was excellent; ....and we are all VERY demanding! Service matched the food. Thank you. David Stannard.
Thank you for accommodating my son's allergies.
Delicious food, great location & ambience, and friendly service. Highly recommended restaurant. We had a great time, thank you
An excellent all round experience
Great Father’s Day meal was tasty and service was great :)
Nice space however due to trouble on your site there was a double booking so we had to wait a bit for a table But were lucky a group was leaving. The guy was apologetic and explained a problem with your booking engine. Was a wait of approx 45-50mins for our food - understand it was Father’s Day and busy however no one advised of a delay. Also once the food arrived 2 of the 7 meals were cold. Nice place may come back again and hope for a better experience.
We had a lovely time. Staff were lovely, food was very tasty and they went the extra mile with a dessert candle for my husbands birthday. Fully recommend this place.
Unfortunately, we had to ask twice for Water and extra Dressing even that it was not very busy. Otherwise, we will come again :)
Great food, service and drinks
