Description: Upon opening our doors in 2009, we were thrilled to receive the The Age Good Food Guide's 'HatAward' and have maintained it ever since. Complementing these achievements, we are very proud of Head Sommelier, Travis Howe, who not only won Sommelier of the Year but also picked up the 2013 Wine List of the Year. Nestled in one of Melbourne's iconic laneways (basement Oliver Lane, and Flinders Lane), Coda is located in the busiest and most dynamic culinary precinct the city has to offer. A stone's throw away from the Yarra River, Flinders Street station and Federation Square, the restaurant enjoys hosting a diverse group of diners from frequenting locals who live and work on its doorstep to diners from all over the globe. Upon entering the restaurant you will be greeted by a member of our friendly team headed by Mykal and Kate Bartholomew and Executive Chef Adam D'Sylva. The trio has assembled a dedicated team with highly sought-after experience from many international and Melbourne-based restaurants. Coda's relaxed environment provides a versatile setting for a range of engagements. Whatever your occasion - from a quick pre-football meal, to a long Sunday lunch, business dining or a cosy seat for an anniversary - we look forward to your visit. While bookings are highly recommended, patrons without a reservation can enjoy the full menu at the bar.

Was recommended to this place from a friend and decided to take some work colleagues for dinner. Left the meal up to the head waiter and the wine up to the sommelier and we were utterly impressed.
Highlight was the scallops with a close second the crispy tapioca and prawn betel leaf.

Friday evening, quick bite before a show.
Staff were great & accommodated us and our limited time.
Restaurant has a nice feel.
Yellow tuna dish nice but not mind blowing.
Diamond Clam dish was very salty for our taste.
Coda slaw didn't excite us either.
Overall food average, good vibe, service very good.

My wife and I have been to some of Melbourne's big restaurants in recent times, but this spot - hidden in classically Melbourne-ish fashion underground and down a laneway - is one of the absolute best. We love Tonka (same owners I believe), but there is a certain understated element to Coda that belies the wondrous menu that really appealed to me. The decor is great, but it's all about the food and the wine, and they nailed it. We will most definitely return. Soon, hopefully.
