Decided to head to Rockpool for a Valentine's Day dinner. The food was absolutely superb. Steak melted in my mouth, it was perfectly cooked and highly recommend the roast veggie side and speck mac and cheese (very generous servings.) The only thing that lacked for me was the enthusiasm from the waiter- very dull and didn't seem very into it,... More

Great steaks, aged to perfection! Had a great after-work dinner, late at night. The decor is very nice and the view of the Yarra beautiful! A bit "pricey," but well worth it. As an American, it was a bit odd to visit an "American-style" steakhouse while in Australia (but I did visit more "Australian-authentic" places, too). Recommended!

As always this restaurant delivers. The menu is thoughtful and the food delicious. I am always impressed by the calibre of the staff; professional and considerate without being pretentious.

I booked this restaurant for my husbands birthday and the whole experience was really good. I requested a table next to the window which they were happy to accommodate for. The food was amazing! We both had steaks with sides like Mac and cheese and sweet potato with garlic yogurt. You need to try the steaks here, the best steak... More

My wife and I had a fantastic dinner at Rockpool with a wonderful selection of fish and mussels to start and THE best pork I've ever had (I'm 51!). The flavours were stunning and beautifully presented on the plate. The service was incredible. Professional but friendly. We got advice on bars and restaurants in London.

My last meal @ Rockpool at Melbourne Casino was brilliant; as was this one! I was dining alone after a day out and about, and very relaxed in the gorgeous dark atmosphere. I should have asked for the Wine List, but left it to the Waiter for an excellent, chilled Chardonnay. Two of these went down well, as did a... More

The food here is absolutely delicious. We were originally told it would be a 1hr wait for a table so we chose to sit at the bar but we were pleasantly surprised when they told us the table was ready 10 minutes later. The staff were attentive and the food was delicious. Definitely worth spending a little extra for the... More

My girlfriend and I had a 7pm reservation on a Saturday night. Upon arrival, we were quickly seated in the central area with a nice view of the Yarra river. After choosing a bottle of wine (Saison Sav Blanc 2015), we were assisted by a delightful waiter (Name was Blomen? Was French I believe so I may have spelled this... More
