This is my second visit and for the second time I was extremely under whelmed. I have heard great reviews of this place but I am at a loss to know why! Atmosphere is dull. Staff OK but nothing special. I admit we have some dietary exceptions but no other Fine Dining Establishment has had a problem with these. As... More

Tonight we had the five course tasting menu - canapes, salmon, quail, ox tongue, duck breast (my personal fave) plus dessert - a marvel. Loved the wine list and enjoyed some gorgeous New Zealand delights. A wonderful pre-Valentine treat.

Went for the five course and weren't disappointed. Loved it - fab wine and interesting decor. Has an excellent reputation that it matched when we visited. Felt the 5 courses could have been a better choice than the 9 courses.

Was quite excited to finally try this place due to reviews by friends as well as Tripadvisor but was very disappointed. We had their 8 course degustation. Food was average. No dish really stood out or had the "wow" factor that other degustation restaurants we've tried provided. 4 of their 8 courses were seafood. One of us did not eat... More

For 25 years our friends and my husband and I have a special Christmas dinner out on or around 23rd Dec. For as long as I can remember we have wanted and planned to go to Merediths as it has had such good reviews and reputation. Unfortunately we did not experience this. The staff were very nice but virtually none... More

An evening with Michael, Penfolds and the Cuisine team delivered an exceptional evening. Incredible 6 course degustation paired with well thought through wine matches made for an adventurous evening. I love @merediths, always pushing the boundaries of new food combinations, flavours and innovative thinking. Michael has an awesome team of chef's and wait staff looking after you in his intimate...

When we booked, we specified our special requirements (no gluten or dairy), which the staff confirmed on arrival. They made it seem it was no problem at all to cater for us. The food was simply wonderful and the service very attentive. We went on a Tuesday, which is the 4-course, Dine by Donation night. Now we want to go... More

My partner surprised me with dinner here for our anniversary. As he worked in the industry, this was somewhere he wanted to go and experience and we weren't let down. On arrival we were greeting by one of the wait staff who showed us to our table, pulling out my chair for me. Once seated he explained about the 9... More
