Working nearby, Its a default restaurant for myself and many colleagues for lunch. It was Japanese French on opening, and then it was something I can't describe and now it is modern and innovative- without being fussy. Must have been here fifty times at least. The owners have seen sense and appointed a wonderful manager from the staff who has... More

The staff are beautiful. And not often you can say that about hospitality staff .. The food is sensational. It's a small space but the ambiance is large. I have been twice now. I think it now be my new regular. If you go .. You must get the side of chips !!!!

Topshelf drinks and food. Enjoy the atmosphere with friends and a few drinks over lovely nibble platters. Meals are deliscious as well.

I have meant to write this review for some time. I work nearby and I only visit the Laneway part of the restaurant at lunch time with work colleagues. The service is terrible. Consistently. You can sit waiting outside for 15 minutes or more before you even see a staff member let alone get served by one. Why promote Laneway... More

This place was excellent for that fine dining/business rendezvous... and a great bar out the front too. Top quality food for a pretty reasonable price.

Nice bar with great atmosphere that is situated in the breezeway of 2 buildings, very nicely fitted out with large screen TVs for sport. Then a very well appointed restaurant attached inside that had a great range of meal choices and very good service.

Food wasn't to bad. Their pastas are good. Presentation is excellent and service is great. Pick a spot far inside in the corner for some quiet. A little expensive but will definitely visit again.

Three pizzas satisfied four for dinner. Good food, good wine list, and good service all at a reasonable price. Going by the numbers at the bar this is a very popular venue for Friday night drinks. Fortunately the bar is far enough away from the restaurant area so the noise is not an issue. Pizzas and a good range of... More

We visited on a quiet night but food was good and service was great. The tasting platter was delicious and provided tasty treats from the starters menu.
