Food took 30mins to come out and 4/8 dishes were sent back to be cooked longer. They did give us drinks on the house for the trouble so that made it a bit better. The service was great though. Friendly accomodating staff

Exceptional meal once again. The portions are very generous and the servers were once again well-trained, friendly and impeccable. Very pleasant meal.

My dining was at the Long Lunch on 14th March, it was absolutely brilliant and full marks to the chef and staff for an excellent menu and presentation. Perfect weather was a bonus, pity about the yachting.

Staff were very pleasant and helpful, we really enjoyed our dining experience. Just one comment though for future consideration re seating - would be easier to converse amongst us if one person sitting on each end of table with perhaps a slightly shorter table 🙂

The staff were very accommodating and they served us in good time - there was just the right amount of time between courses and there was no pressure to order more or leave.

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.

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.
