We chose to eat here 2 of the 5 nights we were in Hobart. The food is so good. Real fine dining. Although they are apparently famous for their steaks, I had confit duck and steak tartare and they were superb. Pays to book as it is a small & intimate restaurant. Pure class.

Four of us went to the Astor for a birthday celebration. The food was certainly above paragraph, however the service did not do the top dollar prices justice. A larger table of 8 seemed to get all the attention whilst we were mostly ignored.

Before attending this restaurant I checked, as usual, that they could cater for a coeliac diet. They were very helpful and the menu exceeded my expectations! Nothing was too much trouble, the food was fabulous, as was the wine list, and the service friendly but professional. We had a wonderful evening and cannot speak highly enough of the efforts the...

The service is incredible, the food is just as incredible and the price is competitive. If you're looking for 5 star dining in a romantic/quiet setting, pop on down to the Astor Grill, it was so good, we went back again before our holiday ended

The Astor Grill is a Hobart institution, more like a gentleman's club dining room than a restaurant. And the food is like that you are likely to find in a typical gentleman's club (i.e. not that flash). What it does have, presumably because of the feel of the place, is a dedicated clientele comprised of the Hobart power set, so... More

Wonderful service. Lovely food. Great wine selection. Restaurant has a great ambience, tables are far enough away from each other to provide an intimate environment for you and your table. Bookings are definitely recommended. Happy to make changes to the menu to accommodate food intolerances. If you are after a good dinner at a reasonable price this is a good... More

I used to go here a lot in the late 80s and heard that it had lost its way. After visiting a Northern Tas steak place earlier in the week I had to give it a go. Rocky , owner? and front of house ,has this place spot on. Great service , pleasing wine list and the steaks were first... More

We popped in for a late lunch on the way back from the Female Factory. The kitchen was due to close shortly but despite the fact we were the only customers the friendly waitress made us very welcome. We had the set menu which was good value, plus desserts (fantastic!) and a bottle of wine. It's an elegant venue and... More

Came here Monday 10 October 2016 for our wedding anniversary and had a wonderful evening with a meal that was faultless. Our host Rocky was welcoming and very attentive to serve a memorable meal, that we will remember for a long time. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel very special. Thank you Rocky and the... More

I arrived without a booking and the manager accommodated by seating my partner and I in another dining room. We received excellent service, and beautiful meals. My steak was cooked to perfection. The tastes and the aromas were superb. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. Would definitely recommend the wonderful dining experience that you receive at this restaurant.

Thank Brad K
