As new accor members we were very disappointed to discover that dining privileges were suspended that night even tho the restaurant was empty. We went and spent our money elsewhere.

Bad and salty food for entree and steaks had sinews and sauces were salty as well for the main, and had to ask a few times for water top up.

We got there after 8pm Friday, wish we'd been there from 6:30 to really experience the venue in all its buzzz, sample more from the menu, and even more from the bar. Service was great. The lamb strap mains was tenderly superb but must plan for one of the more meatier dishes next time. Will def head back a second time and again.

We had a very ordinary night at Butchers Bench unfortunately. Firstly, Parking is a nightmare in this area, especially on a Saturday night with all of the other restaurants packed out in the surrounding region. Allow at least 20 mins or more to find a park. Butchers Bench has a lovely atmosphere and themed decor and was also very busy on the night, so had a good vibe. The food however was too rich and plate sizes too large. No lighter options available on the menu. Steaks are obviously the specialty, so a good choice if you like a good steak meal. After larger than required entree and mains, left no room for dessert.

Dear Warren, Thank you for choosing to dine with us at the Butchers Bench. We are sorry to hear you had a nightmare trying to find a car park.. Unfortunately we are located in a busy district where parking can be limited. However, we do offer underground parking for diners in the restaurant. We will be launching our new menu in April, which has been custom made to suit all types of diners. We hope you can join us again soon, so we can showcase what we truly have to offer. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback! Warm regards, Tariq Abouchakra Food and Beverage Assistant Manager

Pretty good Steaks but my medium rare came out more like medium and not hot enough. Also, our deserts were only luke warm and should have been served with our tea/ coffee. Unfortunately by the time our desert came out our coffee/ tea was all gone. Attentive staff but for the price the overall experience was underwhelming.

Terribly understaffed and the staff were not very attentive even though we were practically the only table present! Some of our steaks were also overdone- ordered medium rare and mostly got medium.

Seems to be the same old level of cooking in a re-branded restaurant steps away from the Glen Waverley food precinct. Not exciting and really not good enough for where they are.
