Need more extensive wine selection. Although the Adelaide Hills wines we ended up having were good.

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.

Steak over priced for quality of dish. Only served with chat potatoes and sauce, yet 3 out of the 4 sides available are potato based - menu design lacks insight. Grill dishes should instead be served with a vegetable medley (as mine was after asking especially - which made a huge and positive difference).

Dear John, Thank you for dining at The Butchers Bench, and we appreciate and welcome your feedback. I am surprised that you found the price didn’t match the quality of the grill items. We pride ourselves on the quality of our steaks, and we truly believe it’s of good value. I have forwarded your concerns to our Head Chef, to which we will take your opinion in to consideration when we update and roll out our next season menu in regards to the grill items being served with vegetables on the side. Again I’m sorry that we didn’t meet your expectations, but we hope to have you again in the future at The Butchers Bench, and thank you for your feedback.

- 3 out of 4 courses ordered different meals, but all came with the same unpleasant sauce (all sauces were supposed to be different flavours-mushroom/pepper/gravy). Meals quite nice though, apart from sauce - the bottle of wine delivered and placed on our table (not opened at our table) had already been opened (by another customer ?? with a sample already removed? as bottle was not full ) - we sent the bottle back....

Some staff excellent, but some need to be more spatially aware and look out for customer's needs or questions. Main grill plates could be better presented - a couple of plain chat potatoes and simple garnish doesn't cut it. Lamb backstrap was excellently cooked but the meat itself was old and dry - suggesting 2nd rate supply. Expected much better from a restaurant which advertises as a 'Butchers Bench'.
