Waitresses were wonderful- caring, considerate and responsive- could not fault. My husband had fish and I had sirloin steak. I gave him half my plate full of chips as he prodominantly had greens and I had a plate of chips. I would have loved some additional things in my salad- like pear or apple and feta or something. The squid was lovely and the wine selection beautiful. Thankyou for making our 35th wedding anniversary special.
Great location for a sneaky lunch Birthday celebration. The restaurant provided a beautiful cake for us. Staff were amazing.
First Edition is like a quiet private club that also serves excellent food.
We always enjoy our stay at the Novotel in either time Canberra and Melbourne
Enjoyed my meal. Very filling. Beneficial having an Accor silver membership card as gave discount towards meal
I was disappointed that there was not more variety in the new menu e.g. more seafood.
Food selection was great a good choice and unusual and quality out standing
We saw the homemade potato chips and thought they looked terrific. He had the steak which came with thin french fries. If he had, have received the other chips it would have been perfect. The ocean trout was amazing.
Decore a bit outdated but enjoyed dinner
We booked on line and received numerous confirmations & reminders but when we arrived at the restaurant there was no booking for us. Very poor. They did find us a table but I have to say the food was very average.
Service people changed and we seamed to be ignored, Waited along time for dessert, Wait staff had pour knowledge of menu, which increased wait time with kids
Restaurant appeared to be understaffed and hurried resulting in miscommunication with the orders and slow drink service. Have been to this restaurant before and found it to be much more organised with a calmer atmosphere.
As Advantage Plus members, our dining experience was excellent value. We would highly recommend other Advantage Plus members to take advantage of the excellent product and service.
Staff were very pleasant, agreeable and wanting to provide good service. We had dinner two consequetive nights and enjoyed our dinner and the ambience. Sitting by the window over looking the side street, lights in the tree, all very pleasing !!
Very nice evening staff very helpful
the steak was a bit over cooked yesterday
The food was delicious & plentiful. We enjoyed our window seat very much
Had a lovely family meal last night! Great for kids as well as adults. Lamb was Devine!!
This is the most disappointing Novotel restaurant I have ever eaten at, to make it worse it was a long weekend and the Accor discount didn't apply and there was a 15% Surcharge.
It would have been nicer to be closer to the entertainment.
A lovely evening to remember
The food is so ordinary and microwave heated such as the lasagna. The chocolate tart was hard and seemed old. The cheese cake was cake not cheesecake. The chips were not shoestring and weren’t that hot. The Neue was very limited for dinner options.
For a quiet setting, pleasant outlook & food of exceptional standard, this restaurant will not disappoint.
We dined here on Saturday and it was a very good experience and the food was great! I booked again for Sunday night and on arrival was told a last minute conference booking had booked out the restaurant!! No one bothered to call me and as it takes forever to get to because of the road works we were NOT very impressed at all!! It did spoil the first experience!!!
We really enjoyed my partners birthday dinner. The food and the service were fantastic.
