Chives Bistro at Cardinia Club
Plenty of wait staff but not enough front of house staff ie staff to get you seated.
Food was great & staff were polite. If they didn’t know something, they would find it out & always get back to us. Lovely night!
Great food and the waitress was great, very informative of where to find toilets, where to order and pay etc. Overall a great first experience.
Professional friendly service. Short wait time and an excellent meal. Not much more you could ask for really.
Birthday club is very nice food & service excellent
Everything from entrees to mains to desserts was delicious. Quite a wait for dinner to be served but expected being New Years Eve.
Staff very friendly and professional, we all enjoyed a great night. Thank you to Tanya the Manager, job well done.
Seniors menu is great value and the food is enjoyable
First & last time there place was dirty & old poor service had to ask 3 times for kids dessert very expensive food & drink $ 9 for lemon lime & butters way overpriced
Very disappointed as it was my birthday & family & friends drove along way
We were seated in the bistro, there was an announcer in the gaming area, when she was talking we had to stop our conversations as we had no chance of hearing each other whilst she was talking.
Most of the food is great but improve in your Fishermans basket and maybe in the main menu.
Our service was dismal there were some discrepancies with some waitresses and the food way to overpriced for what we get.
Lovely lunch and great service but the kids were a bit disappointed with the playroom.
The food is excellent and the staff are wonderful. The seniors deal is particularly good value.
I come here quite often with my colleagues from work. We have always had a great experience here. Food is excellent and service is great.
Your manger, Tanya is such a hard working lady who is so attentive to all your patrons needs and wants. Nothing was too much trouble for her, even though the bistro was very busy.
The food was so nice, with all of our guests complimenting the quality of food and the warmth of the meals when brought to the table.
One of our guests had a particular order, which was filled with no trouble at all.
We always enjoy our meals and services at Chives Bistro.
Had a wonderful Father’s Day lunch. Food was magnificent and we didn’t have to wait long on such a busy day. Staff were warm and friendly with big smiles. Will definitely go back soon.
Fantastic service and delicious food.
The food was quite nice but we wouldn’t return just based on the really poor service. My mums meal was not only forgotten but she was given incorrect info about the meal being available in the first place when it wasn’t. So when her meal never arrived she was informed that her choice wasn’t even available and had to hurriedly pick something else. Staff hardly came near the table. We had to physically get up and walk around to find a staff member and ask them to come to our table so we could order. This happened several times. We noticed the table next to us being served dessert when we had ordered ours half an hour before them. We then had to go find a staff member again to let them know they’d forgotten our dessert. Was just so poor.
Firstly they gave me food l didn't order. Waited another 10mins for correct order. Vegetables on kids meal not edible. My daughter said roast potatoes tasted and smelt funny. I tried them, and yes there was something definately not right - waitress said they we re from this morning! She came back with 4 more roast potatoes - again had strange smell.
We had to wait over 2 hours for our food and the excuse was you were busy. You should put more staff on knowing you would be busy on a Saturday night.
The service desk/pay station doesn't work, while people are getting their booking checked and shown to their table customers are waiting to pay? Need at least two staff at this station.
We enjoyed our food. They took too long to bring out desert. Needed to ask. Music could be softer so easier to talk.
The manager of chives, Tanya was outstanding as always.
The waitresses were so lovely and helpful
The food was super delicious
Table of 5, two ordered parma - 1x cajun and 1x meatlovers.
3 or 4 other tables in the Bistro - seemed like a quiet night.
Mexican Parma came out, we both said no we ordered cajun and meatlovers. Waitress left and brought back Cajun and said "Sorry , i picked up the wrong plate."
Meatlovers parma arrived about 10 minutes after all the other meals. Once it was being eaten, we realised the kitchen had used the same mexican parma, and just topped it with the meatlovers topping... but left the mexican toppings on it (ham, guac, salsa, sour cream etc). This wasn't mentioned to us at all, luckily the person eating it didn't have any allergies.
We would have accepted the Mexican if we were told it was made accidentally instead of the Meatlovers. We'd rather be given the choice than being served what we were.
Overall, the food was nice. But after a kitchen stuff up, that could have ultimately lead to disaster, i won't be rushing back. Sorry.
The food was a let down. Half the meat on the T bones were missing, prawns were non existent amongst the pile of rice to make the dish look bigger than it was and seafood basket well the fish and chip shop gives you more it also lacked in flavour so was not fresh but frozen products. Sorry if this is brutal but we don’t go out very often(expensive to dine out) but it was my daughters 19th and she was actually looking forward to a special dinner. But service was lovely and friendly.
Food is served by a friendly waitress, didn't take to long. Taste great, will come back. Value for money, what more can I say 👍
Food was wonderful and heaps of gluten free options, only let down was the play area was dark and a bit run down.
Apart from that we will be back
I've been coming to cardinia club for 8 years as a halfway lunch point to meet family. It's always been well priced and good food in the past
This visit was the second time with wait staff with tablets and it seems service is terrible now.
We waited at our table for over 15 minutes and after being unable to get her attention I went up to the bar to get drinks and then she saw me and asked me to be seated and they'd come over. After drinks arrived we had to wait for a long time to order our food..asking another waitress to take our order. We had to request water twice, and after the meal the plates were all cleared quickly but no offer to order coffee, dessert or even a water refill. We definitely felt we were being moved out even though it was only 2pm.
The food was average pub food and quite expensive for what it was .
We are very pleased to dine at Chives, we think value for money for us Seniors is outstanding. Meals are very tasty, served up attractively and with a very good array of choices.
We find the staff there so helpful and charming too. Very impressed with the girls!!!!
The chairs are very comfy, and we do like the round tables. Great ambience there and if you are interested you have the pokies available as well. Great place!!!!!!
The food was very nice, was quite impressed at the value for the seniors meals and how nice it was.... Steak was cooked nice and the salmon was lovely. The staff were also very helpful and good
Lovely friendly staff and everyone was really happy with their meal choices and portions. Waitress came over often enough to check if we needed anything
This bistro sells nice food. The service is always good, with the staff being polite. We had plenty of room at our table.
Just your standard family pub meal, my daughters burger was burnt and one of the Parma,s was dry but our other meals were good. It wasn’t made clear how to order, I had to ask and even then it was a long time before anyone came back to take our order. The room was cold so none of us took our coats off. One advantage of being stuck near the kitchen entrance is there’s always plenty of staff passing by if you need anything. It was a well equipped facility that catered for families. The staff member that cleared the table was delightful and I loved that we could split the bill.
The service and food great. But some very big delay between main and sweets. Seemed to be overlooked. Overall excellent service staff and great meal. Will go back
The Service from the staff was excellent, all meals were well presented & tasted good. Will definitely be
As always good service, food was nice and hot very tasty. Exceptional value, look forward to next time.
Great service, Good food, cooked to perfection without a complaint, Bridget was fantastic please we need a live band and a dance floor but otherwise it was a great outing with the family.
Nice and quiet :)
the service was very attentive food was fresh and wait time was quite quick for the 4 of us.I like the new decor Pricing very good and would recommend Chives to other friends.
The food for my children were a bit small, my food was delicious though.
I would return again.
But the children’s food needs to be made a bit bigger
