My wife and I had a great night out for her birthday. The service is excellent, there was a small technical hiccup with our reservation but the quick thinking staff resolved it in minutes. The food came out quickly and was perfectly cooked, the pork belly starter was the best I've ever had. Will definitely be coming back.

Very nice food but quite pricey. Most mains were around $36 and some of us needed to order sides to get vege/salads. Chef def needs to rethink the Risotto but all other mains from our group were very good.

We had a good evening. The staff were friendly & professional. The scallops were tender & melt in your mouth, the lamb was perfectly cooked but the pork belly was very disappointing with little taste. The bread & butter pudding was enjoyable real old school. The base sound was annoying so asked if it could be turned down a bit, which was done ( thanks)

We had a lovely dinner here during Easter weekend. The quesadilla was very tasty and we could've ate more. We shared a pizza for dinner, but sadly it was only warm in temperature - it felt like it had been sitting there for a while before it was served and the pieces of chicken were huge chunks that we ended up picking off. We had a lovely waitress whose customer service was wonderful.

I heard the food was good but reality was even better. Both had the sirloin which melted in your mouth.
Also saw the burgers go by and we will be back for Sunday lunch to try.
Service was solid.

This was our first experience with First Table and it was a successful one. The food was great and we couldn't fault the service either. Definitely a nice way to have an inexpensive dinner with friends

Pretty good experience. Food tasted good. Liked the calamari salad. Although we were hoping to get the famous pork belly dish but we were told the dish wasn't available that day. Ordered beers twice. First time we had to urge it to be sent to the table. Second beer just never came to us. I suppose it's Friday so too busy for the stuff.

We had more than just a pub selection of food beutifully plated. The staff were very friendly for a busy evening. The only problum we had was that we were in the bar area & the base sound on the music was enough to give you a headache & made it difficult at times to talk.
