I booked our gym group in of 22 last week – we had a set menu which had lots of choices on it.
Again the food and service were excellent. We had one member that had some special dietary requirements and they went out of their way to accomodate these.
I was dealing with Shiva online when making the booking and also on the night – he does a great job of ensuring everything is perfect – thanks Shiva!
The staff are excellent, the quality of food to match, and the setting is like no other.
I really like the place.
The service was slow, they appeared understaffed….the blond girl that served us appeared to be the only one doing any real work… The rest seemed to be hanging around. $280 for 4 with 2 glasses of wine….much better places to eat for the money.
A real pity the lamb failed to make the menu. The desserts came in small tubs but were ample and very tasty. In that area we were glad to find parking above the restaurant and out the back ! A good touch.
All in all a great night out !
From the Soup to the Steak to the lovely staff, this is one restaurant you should experience.
Not over the top, just really nice food and staff.
Keep up the great work!
We celebrated a surprise birthday with 28 guests. The service from the outset was impeccable. We also had a person with an illness in our party. It was amazing to see what lengths they went to, to accommodate him. I fully recommend Black Sugar grill for fine dining. The food was excellent and the staff amazing. Thank you Black Sugar Grill for a night we all enjoyed and would definitely love to repeat.
I speak from 35yrs of experience in the hospitality industry
We arrived on time at 7.00, and nothing happened for us from the start. Nothing was offered except for wine and other alcoholic drinks,and a minimal amount of nibbles and bread ( with dips )- ( and we had to ask )
Nearly two hours after we had arrived, I approached the owners . I had noticed that everyone else, who had arrived subsequent to ourselves, had been served before us; many into their deserts ( while we had nothing )Maybe 10 0r 12 people in all.
Those two owners ( both at the restaurant ) knew they had done the wrong thing, as soon as they saw me coming. Talk about squirm, and wriggle, and lie. Excuses were made, meals promised, but you could see them sweat, while I made my point. I didnt raise my voice, but I did tell them they should be ashamed of what they had done to our two tables
No explanations, no communication, no apology, just cynical exploitation.
My partner and I left and went to Newmarket where we ate, instead.
It has taken me a while to place this. The owners will remeber me, and my criticism. I have not had the time to review it earlier.
I am not vindictive, but this place was just so bad, I just felt that all the reviews saying how great it was, needed some sort of balance.. Most praise it, including our local friend, who booked us in. But believe me, this is not a place to dine with any confidence….especially if it’s going to be the first time.
Leave it to the locals
The service is very average. The front line staff are poorly informed on both the wine and the menu. They are reluctant to engage properly, and add nothing to the experience
These are the plain facts.
Thanks for ruining a lovely evening Black Sugar Grill.
I would strongly reccommend this great restaurant to anyone and everyone. My colleagues at work have been told to visit!
Have thoroughly enjoyed both lunch and dinner here and will definately return on our next visit from Sydney.
R & S
One of the things I particularly liked was that the music wasn’t loud so we could have a conversation without straining which often happens in eating places. The meals were a generous portion and presented well. My partner enjoyed the pork dish.
I had the veal dish which was really bland and tasteless. It also had the appearance of being reheated and the frying of the meat seemed to taste stale. I was disappointed as everything else at BS Grill was very good.
Great presentation, with a cute potato croquette in the shape of a pear served on the side! The only suggested improvement I can think of is that the croquette would have been even better if it was piping hot, but it had cooled a little by the time I tucked into it.
But what an enjoyable meal we had.
The main also came with a salad, plus we tucked into some delicious soft toasted garlic bread as an appetiser.
I couldn’t work out how they can do the whole lunch deal for only $18 each, and it included the garlic bread and wine/beer!
Service was spot on, the environment was comfortable, and dining as we did on a Wednesday, parking was close & plentiful.
We have now been back to this BYO many times and it is consistently excellent in terms of quality of food, selection and service. It is right up there with Sails etc.
And being BYO it does not cost you an arm and a leg.
Is well worth the ride out for townies but for us locals it is excellent.
I had a Turkish egg dish. It’s great to go to a restaurant that just doesn’t do the normal breakfast options. My wife had scrambled eggs with salmon. Both meals were brilliant.
