We are sorry but this restaurant is not currently accepting online reservations through ResDiary.
Food is awesome service is well below par. I have been to your restaurant about 6 times in the last 12 months for business dinners and the food is consistently awesome. Unfortunately the service is not, I recently took my husband there for his 60th birthday, as I had always raved about the tenderloin steak being cooked to perfection every time. Our entree and main meal came out in reasonable time though I had asked for the 2 full serves of vegetables to come out on separate plates so we could share, the vegetables came out on our plates thankfully the asparagus was on my plate Eventually our plates were cleared and we asked for a coffee for myself and a jacks for my husband and ordered the g&t pannacotta for sweets. Our drinks arrived in about 10 minutes, unfortunately we did not get our sweets as after waiting 30 minutes I had had enough and we went to pay our bill and to cancel our sweets Your staff offered to get our sweets for us I declined as it was too late, they did comp my husband's drinks. I do recommend the restaurant to friends but I also do tell them to expect bad service.
Hi My Daughter and partner joined my husband and I last Sunday.My daughter Carolyne Hatton is a new member joined up by me.. She ordered a Chicken Schnitzel from the normal menu. The size of the schnitzel was very small so perhaps was the size served up on the daily $12.00 specials? The fish also ordered by her partner was all batter and very small amount of fish!!i They were both very disappointed with the meal
good service, food was beautifully cooked.
Food was ok for before footy dinner , service was terrable ,apparently all new servers on that night , didnt no what they were doing or how to do it, not a good idea by management to put them on for such a busy night was abit like fawlty towers.
Dinner was delicious, service was friendly. Overall a pleasant dining experience.
The entree of spinach fritters was very nice, the fillet mignon and lamb cutlets delicious, and the gin and tonic pannacotta something fun to try!
Very disappointed with the service. As we advised our booking was for pre theatre and after initially sitting down we waited about 10mins and our orders were taken. Entree came out about 25mins later then we had a wait of over 40mins for the mains. Nobody asked if we wanted another drink in this time. We had 1 glass of wine. We had to ask how long the mains would be and reminded that we were going to the theatre. The waitress went and asked, came back told us that ours was cooking, another 10 mins later still no mains, people who came in after us were served their food. Still no mains asked the waiter he went to find out and came back to say it was just cooking shouldn't be long. All in all the food was delicious but service shocking. We got to the theatre just as the bell rung to go in. Not happy to have to rush our food and almost run to theatre.
Our table was not ready when we arrived but was quickly made up with the friendly service (Constanza) and then the excellent food, we will be back
Had the salad with chicken which was very tasty. Just wish the serve was bigger
Nice relaxed atmosphere,excellent service and food.
The two staff members that were on between 5pm & 6pm were ridiculously rushed off their feet. The guy couldn’t leave the bar to take our order, so we had to wait for 30mins. When the lady started she was so rushed we were worried she was going to fall down the stairs so she was having to run so much. Despite being completely understaffed they both did amazing jobs and should be highly rewarded by your management as they did exceptionally well in extremely poor working conditions.
It was impossible to get through on the telephone automated answering system to make a booking. Eventually booked through outside web site, very frustrating.
We dined there before we went to Aladdin at the Festival Theatre The food and drink were excellent but the female staff could have been a bit more friendlier We finished our main course and the plates were taken away and then the bill came We weren’t even offered dessert or coffee We were fairly full from our meal so didn’t want it but found it strange it wasn’t offered Will dine there again
We enjoyed a meal prior to going to the theatre. The service was prompt and the meal was as per our order. Very happy with the service and presentation.
Always a great meal with great service
Fantastic food. Well presented & good portion size for this kind of food. Yum!
The food was lovely but unfortunately the service was very poor. We were the only diners and no drink order was taken and we were not looked at once our main was served. We left to have a coffee rather than stay. It is due to this that I would not return nor would I reccomend the Federal Restaurant even though the pumpkin soup and caesar salad were delicious.
Decent standard buffet breakfast if you are staying at the Grosvenor.
A beautiful meal with really good service. We needed to be out in time to get to the theatre and we made it with plenty of time.
Staff, respectful and relaxed. Food lovely and wide taste experience.
Good serves and food
We were warmly greeted & offered the "Happy Hour" drinks which was a surprise as we had not been aware of this. Small dining area , quickly shown to our seats, again a lovely surprise as it was a window setting. The place then filled up &was quite noisy. Our food was fine, staff were very busy.
Very well managed restaurant with friendly service and most enjoyable meals
Staff were lovely
