Very enjoyable lunch. Staff were very accommodating for special dietary requirements. Service was excellent and the quality of the food was good. We have been here a number of times and have enjoyed it each time.More

I went here with a fairly large group of friends for a birthday dinner recently as the guest of a member. With the dress code and exclusivity I was expecting great things food wise, and on that basis I ordered a medium rare steak. My steak was I well over cooked and I would normally send it back but as it was good quality it was still edible, the accompanying just was also overdone and non-descript flavour wise. The accompanying veges were very good though. Others ordered burgers and seemed pleased with the size and quality of the meals. The atmosphere also seems very shopping mall and not very exclusive. I wasn’t super impressed so won’t be back as I can get the same meal without all the fuss at many a good pub elsewhere about town.
Hello carnegiegirlcp and thanks for taking the time to post your review. I am sorry to hear the experience in our Bistro did not meet your expectations, but I am pleased the food was enjoyable, and I hope your friend's birthday was great fun.
Our Bistro is intended for casual family dining and perhaps our elegant Member's Dining Room would have better met your expectations of the City Club and we do hope you have the opportunity to return and experience it.
Thank you for your feedback and we hope you will return to the Club again.
We have recently joined the RACV Club.
Our first stay was fabulous, Melbourne Cup week and only the King suite left in the whole Club. We were impressed with the suite as it was spacious, bathrooms were lovely and most of all, very comfortable beds.
We have since stayed in the Corner King and the Retreat Premium King room. All very nice rooms, great showers (water pressure), very comfortable beds, air conditioning that worked well on the very hot days. We love the spacious rooms and most of all, thanks to the housekeeping staff, all the rooms we stayed in were clean.
We enjoyed the breakfast at the bistro... a good choice of good quality food.
All the staff were friendly. We will definitely stay at the RACV City Club again.

I attended a business dinner at the RACV in Melbourne city. The food was very good, the wait staff were accommodating and friendly. The rooms comfortable, layout for the function worked well and had modern equipment. Good place for a business function.

Beautiful rooms, great environment, comfy beds, friendly staff, great food. It is also right in the heart of Melbourne, with the tram stop outside the door. I am really pleased I stayed here with family.
Hello TravelsOz82 and thank you for your kind review.
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope there will be many more family trips for you to the City Club.
As you say, with the Bourke St Trams on our doorstep, the Club is a fantastic spot to stay for easy access to shopping and enjoying Melbourne's holiday festivities.
We hope to see you and your family again soon.
Easy Lunch in the city... head to the Racv Club, so handy to Southern Cross Station. Several Lounge areas, tech areas and then dining choices are on the first floor. We looked at the Dining Room, but, chose the Buffet. Open light, casual, no fuss atmosphere. It’s not an extensive variety, but for the price is excellent. Soup, Cold Cuts, Roasts, Fish, Lasagne, Vegies etc. Desserts and soft serve delicious, and endless coffee, tea. Bar service is available too. . Definitely will be returning... the Buffet is “ Cafe “ style...If you’re after Restaurant, go to the Diningroom. I believe there is a Seafood Buffet on Sunday’s, check their website. Highly recommend.
Many thanks for taking the time to post your kind words following your recent visit to the RACV City Club.
I was delighted to read that you enjoyed the Club Conservatory and agree the buffet is another one of the many benefits of Club Membership. You are right we do have an excellent Seafood Buffet on Sunday's.
Please do come back and visit us soon.
