Grossi - Grill
Michael who served us was lovely.
The team all over was so attentive.
The food was exceptional. Especially the steak.
They even wrote happy anniversary on our dessert plate which was a great touch.
End to end it was one of the best dinner experiences I’d had so Thankyou so much.
Fantastic service and beautiful food!
I’ll definitely be going again
This is my favourite restaurant ever. I went here with my family for my 18th and it was impeccable. The food is so amazing, coupled with the outstanding service. Thank you so much
A delightful place for lunch, excellent service and ambience and not at all pretentious like some restaurants
The service was excellent and the food lovely but it was a bit too noisy especially given the overall cost of the evening
Food and table service was excellent. Disappointing thing was we had a booking for 8:15 and were not seated until 8:45, had to wait in the busy bar next door. 5 more mins and we were leaving.
I could not fault the food,wine and service. My only suggestion is to seat people with children next to others with children.
The staff were most attentive and food was excellent.
The welcome area into the restaurant is a bit strange. There is nobody there to greet you and you're stuck in the lobby not sure on whether you go up or down or if you come in the right entrance or not. In the end you walk into a busy restaurant trying to get someone to assist you. Have some placed in the lobby given direction and welcoming guests accordingly.
Service by our waitress, Melitta, was outstanding, she was welcoming, friendly and her wine knowledge was excellent. The other staff were all very friendly and professional. The food was very good. We really enjoyed our meal, the overall experience was fantastic. Definitely on our dine again list.
Went here for date night with my husband on a Friday. While the service was fantastic, the food was nothing flash. Considering the quality of restaurants in Melbourne in this price range, we felt Grossi Gril was overpriced and underwhelming. We started with the duck liver pate which was lovely and the entree crab pasta which was a bit bland. For mains we had the spatchcock and porterhouse steak with potatoes and broccoli as a side. The potatoes were delicious but the mains were nothing to write home about. The chocolate dessert was far too rich and sweet, needed something creamy to balance it. The restaurant was busy and seemed like the tables were squished in, hard to settle in. A pleasant meal but wouldn't return.
Overall it was enjoyable as I was there for my anniversary but as I had booked 6 weeks in advance I was very disappointed with the table seating near the door.
Crowded, noisy and although waiters were attentive food came slowly. Steak had lots of gristle and was just warm and was $65 a plate with veggies. Local pub much better value. Quite disappointing. Shame.
Absolutely loved our dining experience. Our waitress was lovely and her meal suggestions were spot on. The three of us all loved our meals. The only negative was the horseradish and mustard sauces for the Porterhouse steak were served after most of the steak had been consumed. However, this did not mar the overall experience. Will definitely dine here again on our next trip to Melbourne.
Fantastic staff and atmosphere, coupled with exceptional attention to detail. Our meals were delicious and they really considered our 2 year old son and nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely be going back to this wonderful family friendly environment.
Great food and friendly service. However the service was very slow. A very busy restaurant but more staff were needed. Too long a wait between courses meant we ran out of time for dessert - 2.5 hrs wasn’t long enough for a lunch. Still love the place and will be back but have to allow more time.
A terrific all round experience.
Great food, not inexpensive, but you are soaking in the superb service, the friendly atmosphere and the energy of the place.
Even better when we started chatting with the people on the table next to us...great fun evening!
My wife and I have been eating up stairs for many year but thought we'd shout our 3 friends down stair's in bistro.
( we shared a selection of entrees to start followed by mains and 2 deserts to share.
Value for money was poor in particular the entrees - Very expensive and poor value for bistro style eating. Not the Italian way.
Entrees all $30+ way way over priced for size. Menu stated Calamari as entree, but it was actually squid??? @ $32 ummm . Octopus entree had 5 small very pieces, Baccala served on on Pita,, just 2 mouth fulls.
Entree size pasta with Crab,, very very tasty but way too small . Just a few mouth full
Main Steaks at $50 didn't come with any salad or potato's. For bistro menu .. had to pay extra for small tiny garden salad and potato's.
Cheapest bottle of wine on the menu $75... for French Rose.
Will be eating in the suburbs next time or next time at pellegrines. You should check our Vaperetto, Mr Bianco our locals?
Wonderful food with alot of options on the menu for everyone! Wine list was great! Service was outstanding. The did miss one of our entree's but we're absolute wonderful about it and fixed it very promptly without any questions! and brought us a complimentary side!
Cannot recommend enough, worth a look!
We hadn't been to the Grill for about 4 years as a 'track suit and runners' set seemed to have taken over the place then. We went to the Cellar Bar on Monday then the Grill Wednesday. Both excellent. Have put Grossi back on our list...might even venture upstairs...
Amazing Italian food and the espresso martinis are to die for!
Food was delicious and the service was very attentive. We were a bit rushed and I will definitely go back when we can have a more leisurely dinner. The only thing that irked us was the wine list- it’s confusing/misleading. We ordered a bottle of wine thinking it was $47 however it turns out this was the carafe of wine. Didn’t realise until we looked at the bill were charged $85!! Maybe get staff to point this out or have the bottle price listed on the same page as the carafe/glass prices.
Had high expectations of this place and it exceeded them by a mile, great attentive service like clock work. Food was great and high quality as you would expect, the mussels and zucchini entree was the highlight of the meal.
Our food was superb. Service excellent, however thought our wine a little expensive
As always the lunch special menu is excellent value. Can’t get this anywhere else in Melbourne. My favourite place.
Grossi remains one of Melbournes dining institutions. The service is always impeccable, the food reliably good and the ambience most enjoyable. Wine matching advice was perfect. Overall a favourite, if somewhat expensive.
Dined Sat night @ 7:30pm. Service was good. My wife had spatchcock main - delicious. I had scotch fillet steak - tough & chewy & sent it back. Was offered rump steak - much better. Expected better qlty steak at Grossi. Waiter was apologetic and gave us complimentary salad.
Very great service, price as expected for value. Great night for my partners 30th
The table was lovely, looking out a beautifully clean window on to Bourke Street, which we appreciated. Other than that it was pretty average unfortunately. We chose the $50 set lunch menu which seemed excellent value when booking, but it wasn’t really and we would have been better to either spend more and choose from the main menu or go elsewhere. We found the chilled veal entree to be bland, the lamb main was too fatty, and the rice pudding dessert turned out to be a trio of deep fried rice balls with icecream, which were dry. The entree squid ink risotto however was lovely and flavoursome, the house wine was good and the service was fine. But - I don’t think we’ll go back.
We had a really good meal before heading on to the theatre. Service and food were excellent. Bustling and a touch noisy, but still really lively atmosphere.
Superb service and excellent food. The stuff spared no efforts to make us feel like we were valued. The food was well cooked. I highly recommend the whole snapper, delicious. I will certainly be back son.
Very high class and fine dined it was an absolutely wonderful experience, if I’m ever in Melbourne again I would definitely like to dine here again. It was also a pleasure meeting Carlo Grossi. Everything was very professional
Wonderful night with my friend. The food was amazing and the service was too.
We will be back!
I enjoyed my dining experience at Grossi. The only complaint I have is that my duck leg was very fatty, with little meat, which was inclined to be on the tough side. My companions enjoyed their meal and I will be returning with other friends very soon because it was good value fof money.
It was our first visit and we enjoyed it immensely. The friendly waiter Matt made everything so easy. He was a delight.
Had a fantastic meal here whilst waiting for Harry Potter part2. Highly recommend the dessert!
Service was fabulous. Next step is to cater better for vegetarians and to introduce vegan dishes. I had a modified dish made to be vegetarian by omitting the goat ragu however it was bland and not particularly hot. The vegan market place is increasing and an opportunity is beckoning to remain one of the best restaurants in Melbourne for all tastes. 😊
Very attentive comfortable service
Delicious food, well presented
Will definitely return
Too expensive for the quantity provided. They took our bags and didn’t remember to bring them back for the end of the night.
Best Restaurant in Melbourne for me! My family, collegues and any catch up in Melbourne is at Florentinos or the Cellar Door or Grill.
