We ordered a $77 bottle of wine which was plonked on the table. When I asked for it to be poured our waitress seemed surprised. This was a client dinner which to be honest was just plain embarrassing. I am an Accor plus member and stay/dine often at Novotel throughout Australasia, I have never found service Like this anywhere. Come on people, please give your staff at least some basic training. Also, very small selection of craft beer and no drambuie for after dinner. Finally with a positive the fish was great. Happy to discuss if someone would like to call me, you have my number with the booking. 6 people at 6.00 You are my local Novotel and we need you to be better.

May be just after the lock down, the menu was a bit thin.

It's great that we have this wonderful restaurant on Firsttable. Everything was great, friendly staffs, everyone enjoyed their dish of beef and lamb, I would be more thrilled if they had better option for fish other than Tuna, so I had chicken instead and it was superb. Overall very satisfactory.

We had to wait 45 minutes for the food and there were only 4 people in the restaurant. A staff member was still vacuuming & cleaning the first 10 minutes we were there - not a good look. Staff where pleasant and attentive.

We had an early table voucher which is great value. The food was very good and well presented. I highly recommend the pork belly entree and short rib main. The timing and service however was lacking. We arrived 15 minutes before our booking and our entree took 40 mins. Mains took forever as well. We were told it was a new menu when we arrived so maybe that was the delay, there wasnt a lot of staff in the kitchen and there didnt seem to be any urgency. Our waitress was very pleasant. Would return as the food was very tasty.

Very high quality meal with a good selection of wines. Prices are a bit on the high side but it was well worth it. Service was friendly and efficient. We had a great night and will be back.

The food was very tasty. Just a few maybe feedback to the chefs: 1- we ordered lamb rump and said medium rare, what we were served was well done. 2- The chocolate dessert said had chocolate soil but there wasn’t any- not a big deal but I have had similar dessert in Novotel Nee Plymouth and that was well served and tasted good unlike this one. Tasted like just taken out from freezer. Besides this the staff were very approachable and friendly.

Everyone enjoyed their meals, so much so we had no room in our tummies for dessert. Outstanding young lady served our table with friendly excellence.
