pizza was delivered quite some time after the other meals. drinks were very pricey ($30 for a pint, glass of house wine and 2 soft drinks for the kids)
Overall the Espy has scrubbed-up beautifully however. We will return for drinks only most likely.
Sunday roast deal would have been good value, but it was just chicken on offer the night we were there
Loved the food, male waiter good, girl taking orders not so. Will return. Watching the kitchen work is great entertainment.
What will strike you most about the Espy Kitchen is the hotel it's in. The decor is absolutely stunning right throughout. The Espy Kitchen itself is good, with the food being good pub food. The portions are LARGE, so if you're a light eater, I'd get a main to share (we will next time). Overall it's a fabulous place to visit.

Celebratory dinner with family
Service fantastic as they bent over backwards to accommodate my party in low seated tables. But it was extremely noisy and overpriced. Food very average.
Brilliant location, spoilt for choice when it comes to food and beverages. Wait staff where engaging yet not overbearing like some places who try too hard. Value for money and left very satisfied. Bravo!
My daughter said the steak was good but I had the pizza and it was not that great for the price.
i was quite disappointed with the experience.
We really enjoyed our meal! My only feedback was organization of menu items! My parents ordered calamari, the server explained it was small but maybe this should be in the snack list? Entree/main size items weren’t clear on the menu. I had the slow roasted Sunday special and it was delicious!! Came with a good choice of sides I was very happy with it !!! I’ll be back !
Food very average for price. Roast lamb shoulder was bland and overpriced.
Great place to catch up with friends. Service and food was fabulous.
wonderful service and beautiful food! great night out! thankyou
Versatile for business or pleasure. Terrific service - no rush. Noisy because busy - so ok.
Very underwhelming , we were really looking forward to our roast lunch , it was a big disappointment
A good place to visit with a great menu, however the menu is overpriced. We did say something and they were good about it, which is good. Would still go back, would just order something safe like a burger.
Our visit was a Sunday night. Wait staff were lovely and explained any questions we asked
The drinks menu was satisfactory to us and we enjoyed our choice of drinks
The menu wasn’t extensive, but all members of the party enjoyed the meals chosen. There was an issue with a steak not cooked as per request, but this was dealt with efficiently
We were having a good time chatting it was a shame we were told to leave as they were closing
The bar area was way too noisy for us, but I would be happy to recommend the restaurant to others.

We had a table of 10 and had the set menu. The food was amazing with lots of varied courses and plenty to share. I would particularly like to commend the manager Lisa as she was an outstanding host. We will be back.
Highly recommend, amazing food and excellent service.
Fabulous service and food. Plenty of choices for pescetarians and great sharing plates.
Great atmosphere, great vibe. Staff friendly. Food yum. Will be back!
Great steak there. Excellent staff. A nice bottle of wine that was recommended to us.
Pretty disappointed really, while it was a Wednesday lunch, the service was terrible in that we had to get someone's attention every time we wanted something. Not a huge selection on the lunch menu either.

Despite having a decent variety on the menu 3 of us struggled to find something to meet our dietary restrictions and there was no compromise from the kitchen either when we asked. Very frustrating. Was a bit over priced for what we received too.
The wagu croquettes were delicious. The Parma was nice, and the steak was well cooked. Would try again
While our choices were good, the menu hadn't changed and still mostly expensive fast food. 70 a head for one course and a couple of d t I n ks is just a little strong, you are a sting in the Kutcher nafterall.
Pizza wasn’t good at all. Huge disappointment for a place that has a good rep? Wouldn’t recommend

Service was very poor, too slow, unorganised. food ok at best. We ordered beef with chimichurri (ok to good), chicken with slaw fries and gravy (ok). Jam doughnuts for dessert were good.

Best steak we’ve had in Melbourne. Sides were incredible too. As were the starters. Food was amazing.
Good pub food, friendly staff, and great vibe. The room was interesting and the pub is well worth a visit

Amazing space & food - the food was so fresh and 'clean'. We left feeling so satisfied, but without that terrible heavy feeling. All the staff were excellent, highly recommend.
Thank you so much for providing your feedback! We are so glad so many customers are having such excellent experiences at The Espy after the renovations. Looking forward to seeing you back at the venue in the near future. Thanks, Emma Albers Senior Duty Manager Hotel Esplanade
Food was very disappointing and lacked in flavor. Our group of nine were all disappointed with our meals.
Family visiting from New Zealand for a birthday celebration so decided to come to the iconic espy. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, the food was excellent and service very good. The overall atmosphere of the espy is as always outstanding. Thanks :)
Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback of your time in Espy Kitchen! So glad you were able to show off the venue to your friends from New Zealand. We look forward to seeing you again sometime soon, please let me know when you will be popping in next and I'd be happy to assist with another booking. Kind regards, Emma Albers Senior Duty Manager Hotel Esplanade
Great food and service. Our table was right next to the kitchen, so it was very noisy with exhaust fans going.
Mains didn't come out together and steak was luke warm. Food was very tasty and the service was ok.
We would go back.
Loved the service and the food/wine thank you!
Service was amazing. Food was well cooked, but every dish including salads over salty and I love salt! Chips were soggy and like store bought oven fries.
The food was way too salty. we did mention to wait staff but the coleslaw was inedible and chips also too salty. Such a shame
Really impressed. Decor was incredible.
Will most certainly be coming back.
Delicious food, attentive service, great wine. Our first ever visit to the Espy so we were delighted with the evening, suited our plans well too, we went to the William Crighton show after so it was super convenient spot for dinner
