    For a simple order at a not particularly busy period, it took 20 - 25 min for my order to come out (not very express) however when it did... yum-o, still the best pork ribs in town!!

    Food quality and ambience is great but small portion. Also come here for my birthday. In Sydney same company I was greeted with small cake and candle. Here .. nothing as such.

    We made reservations with this restaurant and requested that we be seated at the front of the restaurant as my elderly Mother was joining us and found it cold at the back of the restaurant on a past visit. When we arrived they wanted to put us upstairs but she cannot climb stairs and eventually we received a table at the front which was our original request. We placed an order with our waiter who was quite impatient as we looked at options. Once the order was taken the food arrived relatively quickly which was good. Unfortunately my Mother found the beef ribs very tough and the manager came over to assist us by changing it to pork ribs as she said they were softer. When the pork ribs arrived she said yes they were softer and did not taste over cooked. The steaks we ordered were very good - lots of flavour. Even though I requested well done it did not arrive burnt or dry which is great. The only disappointing thing is that the steaks come with chips or a salad and not a bit of both which would be nicer for a more rounded meal. It was great that the manager was very accommodating with my Mother’s order and changing meal it to pork ribs free of charge. Overall a nice meal.

    The food is probably the best out of all meat & wine co in Victoria, the vibe and atmosphere is pleasant. But out of all, the service and the management there is simply great, pure professionalism. You will not be disappointed here. Highly recommended.

    manager should know how to better handle people, and if the matter of contention was not brought to the customers' notice beforehand, restaurant is responsible, not the customer.

    Always enjoy dining here. To be nitpicking, I would like the water to have some ice in it, but that's just me. The size of the calamari for express lunch was on the small side, but that's just me. Would recommend.

    Celebrated my son's birthday. The steaks were all nicely cooked and I heard no complaints - so a good sign. We had the special lunch menus and serves were large. Too much for me to have three courses! Great meal and would go again.

    My serve of ribs was noticeably smaller than my counterpart and having had them here several times before, although they were good they’ve been better. Dressing on the Greek salad was divine.

    The food is excellent. Entree platter said to be for 3 to 5 people: I think it's more 2 to 3 people. Steaks are cooked the way we wanted. The onion rings are not to be missed. Highly recommend this Restaurant. I am considering joining their membership before our next visit.

    Every enjoyable meal. The waiting staff just need to be aware of the water glasses. We had a napkin and someone's hair dipping into our water glasses when meals were served, and someone was leaning forward to discuss the bill. Luckily, it was not the wine glasses.????

    Came for a celebration and it all went well. Food was pretty good. It was a bit slow. There was a couple of tables downstairs on our arrival. We were taken upstairs, sitting at a corner upstairs. It was kind of strange after only one other table left as there was no one apart from us. On our departure, it was full house downstairs.

    It was our first time visiting the hawthorn east branch. We are regulars of the southbank branch. We ordered a full rack of the beef ribs expecting to leave with a full stomach. At last, when it came, the bones were huge but the meat was lacking. This was not what we were expecting as at the southbank branch, there was more quality control. We asked the waitress to confirm whether it is a full rack of beef ribs, she said yes. We raised to the manager who then went on to educate us about why a beef ribs rack is smaller than a pork ribs rack. There was no attempt to even apologise for the lack of quality. Note that the table behind us who ordered half rack pork rib had a bigger portion of our full rack beef rib! Well, we will stick to going to our southbank branch as it seems that customer service here is not a priority.

    Tasty pork ribs, tender steak, nice glass of Shiraz. The only thing lacking was no appealing vegetables available. The salad needed to suffice. Score: I WILL go back again.

    Situated right on Camberwell Junction in a classic old building, we ordered from the menu, but a good option appears to be the set menus.
