    Excellent food and service. Friendly and approachable staff. Definitely recommend. The stuffed mushrooms were one of the best vegetarian meals I've ever had in a restaurant.

    The food was great, it’s unfortunate the service was really terrible, we could barely get anyone to help, had to ask the lady collecting our plates for some drink menus as they were taken away just so we could have another drink. We were sat down by our server, she took our order and out our food and then we never saw her again, she also seemed to bored and did not want to serve us. When we ordered our second round of drinks the friendly young lady said “I’ll have to get your waitress as I know she would be annoyed if I did it” then she went to find her, couldn’t (unsurprisingly, we couldn’t find her either) and said “I couldnt find her so I’ll just do it”. we just wanted a drink! Very disappointed with the amount you are paying for food the service needs to be a lot better

    Had the seafood platter for 2, for $148 or however much it was I'm expecting to be pretty happy.. 2 oysters each & 2 scallops each isn't really worth the money. Pepper prawns and squid were reheated from the night before and drier than the sahara. Nice place but won't be back there for the seafood that's for sure.

    Great food, perfect location. Only hiccup was the restaurant wasn’t full but the waitress had to keep apologizing for the delay in taking our food orders due to a “small kitchen “. Never had this before!!!!!

    We had the Drunken Lobster for a special lunch, it was superb and paired with a beautiful wine. The restaurant was not over booked so distancing was achieved. The staff were really kind.

    Most of the group enjoyed their food and wine both flavour and quantity. The disappointment for a couple of people was the lack of the chef being able to make a dish vegan.

    Whenever we organise a catch-up with family we pay The Wharf a visit. The service, food (especially the seafood) and atmosphere are always fantastic. We'll be back!

    This was now my third experience at The Wharf and l must say it was the best. Our entree of scallops was amazing, the scallops were cooked to perfection, slightly translucent and the dressing was full of flavour. The garlic bread was so crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside accompanied with a delicious balsamic oil. Main meal was the rib eye which was cooked as per specified medium/rare served with the most delicious truffle gravey. A side order of Greek salad which has an abundance of salad ingredients. Another main meal was the Satay chicken skewers, the chicken was juicy and the satay sauce was absolutely delicious on a bed of Asian salad. For dessert l had the Mocha brulee, which was smooth creamy and of course the lovely crack on the top, it was served with the most delicious coffee icecream, definitely a dessert that doesn't disappoint. The waitress was lovely, friendly and very attentive. Service was top notch. Fabulous food and fabulous service which meant a fabulous evening. Thank you.

    Starter was great, chicken main was a bit dry and others mentioned meat was not cooked to how they asked. Service was terrible, took ages just for our drinks order and the took for ever to order our food. One waitress picked up my drink which l hadn'tfinished yet and took it away to which she ended up replacing, however l did have to ask again for it. The same waitress seemed grumpy and rushing around our table picking up plates excuse me, banging plates which gives off a bad ambience. Been here before and the food was amazing, hense why we bought our interstate travellers here, to which was a little embarrassing with this waitresses behaviour.

    The food and service were great. The surprise birthday slice was also appreciated and a nice touch. However, do not request a seat with a view because you are near the open kitchen where the restaurant narrows and where it can be noisy. Especially as they are scraping & stacking plates and dishing up food. I would definitely go back when in Adelaide but don't sit near the kitchen.

    It was really disappointed that we requested a table near the window with a view in an almost empty restaurant and we had a negative response. The excuse that the table was available it was for 2 and not 3 people it sounded silly. I assume that it would be a big deal to add one more chair. The food was absolutely delicious though.

About the restaurant

A venue for all occasions

Welcome to The Wharf, a modern, casual diner that is perfect for all occasions. With views over the marina and the ever changing Glenelg foreshore this is the ideal venue for romance, business or just a great time. The menu has a Modern-Australian vibe with everything from seafood to steaks, there's something for everyone! We love the fresh South Australian King George Whiting and the extensive 'healthy menu'. A winning view and a winning menu - what more could you ask for?

Best dish: seafood chowder (for entree) and pork belly (for main).
