This restaurant may be old school but for some of us this is the way dining used to be. The tables are linen clothed, the cutlery was not new but well worn, the table was set with more than one glass i.e. wine and water glasses. The waitress was polite, well mannered and very professional in her delivery. It was... More

My wife and I were treated to dinner at the Astor Grill as a birthday present for me for my 70th birthday. I must say that the food, the service and the whole experience was lovely. We will certainly go back there in due course even without a voucher! I have voted the overall rating as 'very good' but i... More

We've managed to visit the Astor Grill four times over the past three years and we've never been disappointed. Delicious food, old world charm and spot on service. Steaks always cooked to perfection.

If you're looking for a "proper", old-style hotel dining experience, then this is the place for you. From the linen table cloths and napkins to the dark oak panelling, the Astor Grill exudes an atmosphere of class and sophistication. People dress up for dinner here! The food is also high-class, especially the beef, which is a house specialty. The seafood... More

For those looking for excellent Tasmanian fare (steaks a signature) in a more traditional atmosphere, an excellent wine/beverage list, where you can hold a conversation with ease, the Astor leads the pack. The signature "Steak Astor" pocketed with blue cheese, coupled with a fine red (Tassie Pinot) is very hard to go past. For business or catching up with friends,... More

We did not book having just arrived in Hobart but we were staying at the Astor Private Hotel and asked if they could fit us in, we were given table 13, which we discovered is reserved for staff or hotel guests. The only table not booked. A beautifully appointed room, we had a view of the wine rack, but it... More

Enjoyed a nice meal here. We both had 2 entree's for dinner and found them to be very nice with a glass of wine, staff friendly and knowledgeable. This place has been here for many years and still consistently produces a fine dining experience.

Food is really good. The menu is well thought out. But the most pleasant - is the respectful attitude to guests. I mistakenly ordered a dish that I can not eat. When I received my order, it turned out that this is a beef tartare (I assumed a steak). We apologized and said that of course will pay for this... More

Bad service, expensive, and poor food. Used to be one of Hobart's better restaurants but no longer. Waited 20 minutes after being seated to be offered a drink. The food off the $39.00 for 2 course menu was poor. I had the pork and it was grissly and tough. Will not be returning. Better value ar a local pub where... More
