the antipasto was too underwhelming for the but the lamb entree was superb. Service level by the male server wasn't up to expectation for the price i am paying in a restaurant like this.

Abousulely tasty food and friendly service. Size of serves was on the small side for price. They could have had a five if the had not tried to sneak in a tip into the bill. I don't think conpolsery tipping happened in Australia?

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

You could wear a dress. It's Melbourne so feel free to express yourself. This restaurant is fairly casual although lots of people there after work wearing suits and work dresses etc.

I agree with 111Jenny. It is a great place to take your time and enjoy their attention to detail and great service. However it would always be best to check with the staff there.
