As we arrived we were not seen antil about 5 minutes of walking in. When we finally got served and ordered, the meal took for ever to come to our table. However the service was good after that little speed bump.

On the night we had dinner here, it was a kid free zone, the weather was nice and we sat outside. Staff were quick to greet us, and were helpful with menu suggestions too. Had a fantastic cocktail from the menu, would definitely recommend and go back again. As you walk past the shop front though, you could almost miss... More

We had an early dinner and sat outside and enjoyed a lovely atmosphere and view of the bay. The food overall was excellent and serving sizes are good. My risotto was a little overcooked but still tasty, everyone else enjoyed their meals. My husband said the marinara was the best he'd ever had. The deserts were not as good as... More

Went in here for lunch on a stroll around St. Kilda. Not too many tables were occupied but there was a nice atmosphere where we sat, outside, overlooking the street. Menu was varied. Staff were friendly. We both had a cider to cool us down on a very hot (40 degree!) day and left feeling refreshed.

We met friends at the Elbow Room in St Kilda for lunch. There were 7 of us and we sat outside overlooking the activities you expect in St Kilda. We were very impressed with the service from a friendly English backpacker , cold drinks and the meals we had. It was just so relaxing we could have stayed all afternoon.... More

We checked the menu on their website which looked very good. Price quality you may expected for main dishes priced between 22 and 35 dollar. The female staff was too casual dressed, not suited for a dining like this our opinion. Unfortunately the main dishes we ordered were dissappointing. Not only the sauce that came with one of the dishes... More

Sadly, St Kilda is rather run down however there are a few good restaurants. We caught the 96 tram from Melbourne CBD, alighted at St Kilda & walked 'the drag'. Elbow room was the only non-pushy restaurant, popular with young people. Staff lovely. Great food.

We walked past this lovely place all week, on our way back from the beach. So we booked on our last night in St Kilda and it was excellent. Reserved the table in the front window area, which opens up al fresco, and the service could not have been better. The manager and staff were friendly and professional, but the... More

Early dinner at 5.45pm on a Saturday. Ate inside at a window table to get off the street. Friendly service. The share plate entree for two at <$30 was awesome. Fresh and great variety. Mains at around $30 were good value with reasonable selection of seafood, pasta, steaks and other. Enjoyed my marina pasta and partner's steak (porterhouse) was simple... More

Situated on a busy street with plenty to look at. Glimpses of the Sun setting over the bay. Service was friendly but not very knowledgable, wine list is limited but some cocktails on offer. Four shared courses and all enjoyable. Cost reasonable. Probably a better choice for groups and would return.
