Great service and yummy food. Would dine there again. The only thing was that the sample menu on first table was different from what was offered for lunch but didn’t matter the food was delicious.

Had a great night at Concrete! Was shown to our table straight away and the service followed quickly after which flowed so easily. Really loved the Poutine Fries and the Veg burger was really different to just a standard veggie patty and salad - it was really delish :)

Good atmosphere and music, though a little noisy making it hard to hear.
We ordered 4 dishes, but were only given 3 (they missed one dish). Saying that, we didn't mind as the three that came out were filling enough!
If you get the sliders get the Asian Chicken (definitely the best). The halloumi was nice as well. Loaded fries were very filling too.
Overall a good experience!

Diverse tapas style menu with a delectable selection of meat and vegetarian dishes. Food presentation was appealing and the flavours were very good. The pork belly was just wow!! Great selection of wines also. Service was truly excellent with an engaging and entertaining waiter. Will definitely be back for seconds and thirds!

We ordered multiple small dishes which were lovely. The wine list was also very good. The waiter was very lovely also

The food was amazing, I would come back just for that. However it took at least half an hour to get served for drinks and then the drinks didnt come out until we asked for them when the meals came out. This may have been due to only two people working. I hope it is different when they have full staff on.

My partner and I came her for Valentine’s Day. Great small plates that were the perfect pre-movie fuel! Also, amazing cocktails! I’ve been dreaming about your peach mule all week.
We will definitely be coming back soon!

Went to dinner at Concrete on a Wednesday night for a long overdue catch up with friends. Our waitress was attentive and helpful, despite the initially crowded and loud bar. We ordered drinks and starters of bread and dips and some twice cooked chips. Both were exactly what we were after, with the bread nicely warmed and drizzled with olive oil. We all had burgers, two of us with the fried chicken burger, one with the pulled pork burger, and I had the beef brisket burger. All of the burgers were a hit, I particularly enjoyed the generous amount of beef in my burger! I left very satisfied, after a fantastic catch up with my girls and a delightful dinner. Highly recommend!

On arrival we found the booking wasn’t listed but this was no issue, a table was organised for us very quickly. We did have some issues initially with our food order but the staff were superb and the customer service excellent. Things were sorted quickly and we were provided with an excellent night. Would certainly go back.

An interesting name for a bar/restaurant. Situated above the entrance to Wellington Cable Car. Very friendly, efficient service. the food platters were well cooked and of superb quality. These guys are well worth a visit!!

I ordered the BBQ pulled pork, but they brought out the beef brisket instead and informed me they ran out of the pulled pork. I ate the beef brisket (which was great) and they took this meal off the bill which was extremely nice of them. My friends also enjoyed their meals as well. Will definitely come back!

Food was yum, I ordered the build-a-burger and shared the halloumi and calamari...definitely recommend the halloumi. Got to give it up to the service, definitely made the dining experience super pleasant from the moment we walked in, ordered and left!!!

They also make good lemon lime and bitters :)

Really great experience at Concrete Bar - the staff were super helpful, kind and just really fantastic overall. The food was excellent as well, I had the make your own salad, and my partner had the make your own burger. I love the idea of being able to customise your order, and the food was delicious. We had three of the sharing plates to begin, and I can highly recommend the calamari and the chicken bites - we will definitely be back.

Manager was very friendly and greeted us at the door. Our table was waiting and was in a nice cosy spot. Although there are not that many vegetarian options the ones we ordered were excellent. Awesome place to go for a meal and a drink after work

The bf and I had an antipasto platter to start.. the cheeses were really nice, but the random roasted carrots and almonds were a bit random and in necessary. They also gave a whole lot of bread (tasty) but only one small tub of dip that ran out pretty quickly.
The broccoli tabouli was beautiful, but the scallops and meatballs lacked any 'wow' factor.
It seemed like they might have been really understaffed, because even though the waiters were nice during the interactions, there was a lot of waiting around for customer service.
Would probably come back during happy hour and try one of their 'make your own burgers or salads'

Had a very enjoyable evening. Was happy hour when we arrived and the happy hour wines were really good wines. The staff were very polite and attentive but not overly so. Just before the end of happy hour the waitress went round each table to see if people wanted more drinks. The food we had was delicious, we had the two platters to share, the main one had a great selection and the cheese board also had great cheeses. The waiter even brought us extra crackers without us asking. Will definitely be back.

Very good time, we were taken care of soooooo well, food was alright, I heard they were changing the menu though because of a new chef, the new chef made up something for us that wasn't on the menu and it was the best dish that we had. Still a really cool place <3

We arrived just before the end of happy hour so the small room was fairly full and the noise was a bit above my comfort level for dinner, but it did empty out and became far more congenial. The staff were awesome! Once the repairs have been finished outside, sitting on the balcony having a drink and eating the divine chicken bites would be a real pleasure.

Great pre-show dinner with excellent, friendly service and tasty small plates. The fried chicken is out of this world amazing and the fries were so good they called me from my usual low carb diet. I would like to have had salt on the table, but overall a great night out. Nice wine list too

Arrived just in time for last half hour of happy hour! Excellent! My friend and I enjoyed wine and bubbles. Ordered small plates to share - calamari, chicken pieces, 2 bowls of chips and a small greek salad! Everything was lovely, fresh and tasty. Ended the meal with a warming coffee. It is quite noisy, but still a good atmosphere.

Arrived and was immediately greeted with a smile, they showed me to the table and our waitress was lovely , always making sure we were alright. I loved the seats soo comfortable especially as I'm a big person and didn't feel confided or squashed which is a definite bonus. Meal was lovely and so fast had a great experience and recommend Concrete Bar to have either a meal or even a few drinks. Keep up the great service :-)

Had a really good meal, and staff were friendly and accommodating! Only negative was that our booking was for 7.30 and when we arrived it was very loud as they already had a DJ playing (who I think had left by the time we left at 9?) so we had to shout all through dinner, but I guess that's to be expected given Concrete is more of a bar than a restaurant! Overall, would definitely come back for dinner, just not on a Friday or Saturday night :)
