    The service was excellent, friendly and helpful. The seasonal food selection was good with a good range of food types, suitable for the time of day. The wine list was extensive and the staff were very good at helping select the right one. The venue is warm and inviting. Overall, it was a great experience - felt it was money well spent.

    Came here for a cheeky lunch as we headed to Sorrento. Had the lamb pizza which was delicious- along with the arancini. It’s a lovely little spot with a fab menu - definitely worth a visit :-)

    Setting - nice; Service - adequate (cafe standard); Food: Arancini - OK ( had better nut nice), Saffron & peas risotto - Average (wouldn't have again), Mushroom ravioli with chicken - Below average/unappetizing/poorly presented (definitely wouldn't have again), Coffee was good. Probably should have had the pizza. Was expecting better.

    While the restaurant is huge the space is well planned, separating large tables (more noisy), from tables of 2 or 4 dinners. The atmosphere on this Friday was lively but never over the top noisy. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was good.

    We’ve been going to the Epicurean since it opened. Last nights experience was not the best. The menu has changed and is not with the price anymore. Unfortunately we will not be running back like we used to in the past.

    The person in charge yesterday needs to put a smile on her face and not mumble when she is talking. We asked for Parmesan by the time my husband got it, he’d finished his pasta.

    The food and service was fantastic, but because there was a party happening in a room just near our table, with a very loud DJ at 1pm in the daytime, it really took away from our experience, if the party was not going on, I would of rated and enjoyed the experience so much more, thank you to the staff their service was great.

    Food was tasty but pricey. Service was friendly, although staff need training. Wait staff constantly interrupted conversations at the table to ask if we wanted to order, which we had, and plates taken before everyone had finished their meals. They weren't unfriendly just not polished in my opinion. Train staff better for better review.

    My sister, cousin and I had lunch here after our morning at Alba Springs. I would highly recommend coming here for some delicious food. The food came out quite quick. Everything we ordered was delicious. The ambience was nice. The service was great! Staff were attentive. Would definitely come back here again.

    Waiting 1.5 hours for our main meal is far too long... We used to come often pre covid and it was great. The value for money certainly doesn't exist... When pizzas are $30 plus and pastas are $40 plus and then waiting 1.5hours for it?? It just destroys the dining experience... They are the quickest meals to cook.. If your paying a premium then you'd expect premium service...etc Epicurean has become another Italian based restaurant climbing the ladder to sell pizza and pasta at the highest price and killing the novelty of going out for dinner.. Its my honest account of last night and we will return in the off season

    Had not been to the venue for quite a while and it was just wonderful. Millie was our server and she was lovely. Food arrived on time and hot. Everything tasted absolutely delicious. The barramundi and prawn dish was a stand-out, tiramisu amazing, eton mess good, the only slightly negative comment to make was a little too much oil on the beetroot salad. Otherwise - awesome - won't be so long between visits next time!

    The food was ok BUT we have an issue with the way the front of house lady spoke to her wait staff. We were sitting near the front and heard her have a go at most of the team. The restaurant was reasonably busy, but not full and the all the wait team were working. They weren’t standing around chatting or doing nothing. A bottle of dressing was spilt near our table, and when one of the girls went to clean it up, the head lady said “why are you doing this” . It’s a OHS issue for both staff and customers if anyone slipped on it. In our opinion the girl was doing the right thing. It was a hot day yesterday, and there wasn’t even a fan running, let along A/C. Customers were getting a container of ice to cool down the water, that’s how warm it was in the building. For the prices we were paying for our food, even a few ceiling fans should have been running. Overall, the food had good and not so good parts to the meal, but the heat of the building and the way the staff were spoken to put us off. I wouldn’t make the effort to go there again.

    Food was very good but it was so expensive. I ordered the barramundi and although delicious, it was the tiniest piece of fish for $49.00. The rocket salad at $30 was also very expensive. It’s a shame that it is so pricey.

    I’m really sad to write this review. We’ve dined at Epicurean before, but last time, we had the worst experience. We visited with my uncle and aunty, so only 4 of us… we waited over two hours to receive our main meals (they blamed my main…. it was the baked fish, and they lied and said that it needed ages to cook, but we know they forgot to put our main order through as they asked us to repeat what we’d ordered.) we were put in the room to the side with the duck neon, on our own, big room, empty… no vibe. No one really came to see if we were ok, as we were 100% forgotten about after entee… entree took 30 minutes and then we waited 45 minutes before asking about our mains, and then it was another 30 before they were served. The staff were not even nice, which is so strange as they’ve been nice in the past. Serving size was VERY small. My baked fish was so small we ended up almost on the floor laughing that it took THAT long to cook the fish….) Not a great review - but worth mentioning incase the service is on the way down.

    We had a table of 9. This meant we had to have the set menu. Food was plentiful and good however it was like they wanted us out of there in 45 minutes. We hadn’t yet finished the entrees when the main courses were put on the table. Gave us no chance to savour the day or the food. We ended up taking home 90% of the Mains. The timing of the food coming out was very poor. Which was a shame as the food was tasty.

    A shame to write poorly about a local watering hole but I now had a similarly poor experience here a number of times. And whilst the food is reasonable good (apart from any of the deserts which were disappointing) and the staff are incredibly friendly. The service is terrible (slow, while bottles of sparkles simply left on table unopened and not iced-so basics), the space is so noisey it’s hard to hear the person next to you and the cost is outrageous considering the set up. It feels like an over priced hawkers hall, which is such a shame because it’s a beautiful looking space and the owners are lovely. Sorry! But when I paid the bill I couldn’t help compare to other experiences at that same cost, and it really doesn’t hold up.

    Have gone here for year and always loved our visits. However, main hostess was grumpy and rude upon arrival.other staff were great, but felt on edge from hostess. Food was astronomically expensive for small amounts you received. Also food quality was terrible. So disappointing when it used to be beautiful.
