Excellent service, amazing food!
The restaurant was quite loud when we went but not so much that it was irritating.

On arrival the greeting wasn’t too warm, we were ushered straight to our pretty cool booth. Ordered a fruit soda drink which was very disappointing, needed far more flavour...however the food was very generous portions and very tasty! We arrived during the ‘breakfast menu’ time, which we ordered from, and asked to just have a look at the lunch menu incase we were to come back another day. The waitress was very reluctant to ask if she could show us ... anyway we never got to see it and she never mentioned it again! The waiting staff seemed a little all over the shop, coming back double checking our order and then bringing the cake trolley which we hadn’t even asked for. It’s a pretty cool popular place to eat, would definitely book first...

The booking method was a little tedious having to wait a while before being seated during lunch time sessions. It was very busy at the time. Food was good and tasty. Service a little slow, but overall experience was good. Will come again for dinner

Overpriced items that weren't even tasty. $27 for a steak sandwich when they skimp on the meat by slicing and layering it - lacked in sauce and flavor. Coffee was mediocre too. Very disappointing as I'm a fan of The Grounds of Alexandria.

We had two waitresses. One was lovely, one clearly couldn’t be bothered. I have significant food intolerances and asked a few questions, it was clear to the entire party she couldn’t be bothered.
And there was no almond milk which baffled me.

This is the third time I have been here and everytime everything exceeds the previous experience...We had the corned beef sandwich which was beyond our expectations...We loved it so much we wanted to go give the chefs a round of applause for how happy they made our tummies!! ...Cocktails were gorgeous and finished off with the Affogato which was literally a party with fireworks in our mouths....We headed to a concert at the Metro afterwards (Rolled there) and we talked about the food all night to whoever would listen! 👌

Loved the food, loved the ambience (however I wish the tables weren’t so close together). The ONLY thing that I despised was the fact that the moment my friend and I declined dessert, we were told bluntly that they needed our table and we needed to leave. There were a few empty tables around, no waiting patrons, and it was 8.30pm on a Thursday night. We would have stayed for drinks (give us time to digest dinner!) later but we were put off. I’ll come again for the food and ambience, but please be patient with patrons.

We ate at the grounds just before Christmas and the food was excellent. This time the fish was dry and overcooked and the squid was tough and cheeir

We absolutely love the Grounds of the City. Service cannot be faulted and the food is delicious.

I appreciate the staff even more because they are able to accomodate the children and prams, where a lot of venues wont.

The grounds in the city is a very quaint cafe. The feeling was energetic, the service good and the selection of food comprehensive. I was able to have a lovely catch up for brunch with two friends. We did find the cafe a little noisy but that goes with the lovely atmosphere.

I have never been to a restaurant where they could not alter the meal for a customer. I asked for the Spanish eggs to hold on the egg yolks (just egg whites) and asked for no potato and chef refused. Terrible customer service.

The noise level is very high... it’s just the acoustics. We were a family of four and a small table and we were raising our voices constantly to be heard. The fit out is great and the service was also great ( our waiter was really nice and attentive).
The food was average... particularly given the prices. Nothing we had for lunch stood out.
The cake we shared ( “The Grounds” cake) after lunch was delicious though, and our coffee was also good so I can only recommend it for cake and coffee. As long as you don’t want to have a conversation.

A waitress took my dish that I didn't finish yet without asking me and service was not nice comparing to my first experience with the Grounds. I was disappointed with the foods because they were not generous and over priced.

On this day I proposed to my partner and The Grounds staff went above and beyond to make this a truly special night for us. Prior to the booking time the manager called me to set up a quick meeting at The Grounds in the City and we planned the proposal. This itself exceeded my expectations. I find the effort made by the staff on this night something I cannot say thank you enough for. The timing, food, service and friendly atmosphere could not have been better. Thank you all so much.

Oh, and she said yes!

My sincerest gratitude,
Andy

We had a nice dinner at The Grounds for a family birthday. The choice of food was good, with something for everyone and the service fast and friendly. Our complaint was that they brought everything out at once so that mains were cold by the time we got to them... We felt a little rushed and the food was not priced at a ‘fast food’ price point.

Was disappointed with the menu, was different to previous times we have been there and the dessert menu wasn’t enticing, the main reason we go there is because of the delicious cakes, was told the desserts were sold out by 4pm which is not true in previous years as we have been there at the same time... the dessert trolley was always full

The food was good but the service were terrible. We sat down for at least 5 minute before we can get the waitress’s attention and it she wasn’t even our waitress. She took our order and passed it on to our waitress and our waitress paid no attention to us whatsoever.
