Service was exceptional
Hi Waterfront Restaurant team, We would like to thank-you for the excellent evening you provided for us to help celebrate my husband`s 60th birthday. The wonderful food, service, the table settings was really lovely. All of your team were friendly and supporting all night, even we had the little incident with the little baby being sick, nothing was too much trouble for you all. Everyone enjoyed their evening and were very impressed how you provide function. Thank-you again for a memorable evening. Kind regards, Linda Wemyss
Everything was wonderful except the table service... I got up to get the menus as they were not given to us when we sat down... that was the only thing... otherwise all good thank you
Great food and service as usual. Bought 4 colleagues in for a business dinner and all left happy. Thanks again Novotel Geelong
Great service Friendly atmosphere
The staff were fantastic and very accommodating. All of our dietary requirements were met and meal portions were quite large. It was a very enjoyable birthday celebration for our group and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a delicious meal. Thank you Novotel Geelong!
Service was poor I'm not that fussy but i had to get my own meuns staff were not sure on special,food was average!! Expected more from accords hotels
I selected your restaurant after reading the menu online. I dined with 3 family members and 2 of us could not wait to have the 12 hour slow cooked beef ribs as we were expecting a melt in your mouth almost gelatinous piece of beef but were very dissapointed when they both were stringy and chewy. One of my children had a mexican inspired chicken breast but unfortunately they used a mashed avocado which had been prepared some time ago and it was obvious by the colour it should not have been served. Also unfortunately everthing was placed on the avocado and its acrid flavour permeated the whole dish.Your website also stated that they would make mention of birthdays but even though we stated at the time of booking no mention of the occasion was made we dissapointing when the ads dont meet our expectations
Great food and service
The Waterfront Bar was the perfect spot for our team celebration. It was lovely having the view, and our own access to the bar. The service was friendly, and the few snacks that we ordered were high quality.
We dined at the restaurant for our anniversary. We were given the window seat as requested and loved the ambience of looking over Corio Bay. The meals were amazing and he service was lovely. There was a slight problem with a can getting stuck in the storm water drain, which flooded the restaurant and ended our dinner. However the staff were very helpful and had dessert sent to our room compliments with a bottle of Moscato. I would recommend this restaurant if you are staying at the Novotel, I had room service from the Waterfront the next night and the food was amazing once again
Staff were very friendly and attentive... Food was delicious and presented well...
The breakfast buffet is fabulous! Good value

I book for dinner .I came on the reception waited ,no one came and talk to me .I left I waited a bit no one even call me to see if I'm still coming for my dinner reservation .its like no one cares when I got there .so no thanks will never go there and will never recomend anyone to go there
Great main cooked to perfection!. Hood service, attentive
The only criticism was when we were eating breakfast the restaurant only had one other table (a couple) sitting near the window, and us in it. A family came in consisting of extremely noisy children x 5 and in turn noisy parents x 5. This group was sat directly behind us. The waitress had the whole restaurant to seat them away from us. Instead of a leisurely breakfast we rushed through as the noise was unacceptable from that group with their children. Was not happy at all it ruined our breakfast and that group should have been seated away from others as they were loud, rude and disruptive.
Service a bit hit and miss. I think we had a trainee?
We were disappointed that there wasn’t more seafood selection....most of the food didn’t appeal to us....we ate very little....the delightful birthday desert presentation was wonderful and very pleasant surprise from the Waterfront Restaurant, thank you. Cate
Lovely view of the Waterfront
We booked online in a seamless and easy to use system. We (2) decided on the chef's special on the day Red Thai curry snapper on a bed of rice noodles and sweet potato. It was surprisingly bland and needed seasoning. The fish itself seemed firm and needed a good knife to cut. The broccoli beans and sweet potato were under cooked and firm. It was a challenge to pierce the veg on to the fork without catapulting it across the table. The red curry sauce was runny and excessive and posed a threat to flicking on to your clothes. We pressed on for a desert of terrine chocolate and macerated cherry. Frozen solid and served with just as spoon, I challenge anyone to ease away any pieces to eat without the risk of the rock solid terrine launching itself across the table as a guest for a celebration I didn't complain. A few simple things would greatly improve the diner experience.
5 star service & very good food in the restaurant which I will be back again in the future.
We loved our dining experience at Waterfront Reataurant. The dining room is very welcoming and has a lovely atmosphere. The view of the waterfront is just amazing, and the food and service were excellent. Also, the breakfast the next morning was one of the best offerings I have experienced anywhere in the world. The staff were attentive, very friendly and professional. I couldn’t recommend Waterfront Restaurant highly enough. Thank you for a truly memorable experience! We will definitely be back again in the future.
