The food was delicious however given the open kitchen it was quite warm in the restaurant.
Great service. Our waiting staff were extremely cheerful and very helpful in explaining dishes and meal sizes . We had the Kitchen charcuterie selection and the slow cooked shoulder lamb. Absolutely fabulous.
Food was incredible. We did the chefs menu and would do it again!
Great food and atmosphere
Definitely I would recommend Cumulus. On arrival we were greeted immediately in spite of the staff member obviously already busy. We really appreciated this. Many restaurants leave customers standing at the door for some length of time and you often feel rather ignored. The food was sensational and all of the staff were professional and polite. We could not fault anything. We enjoyed sitting at the bar watching the kitchen in action
Great food, great atmosphere and great service. Loved it. Went for a business dinner and it was a great choice.
We enjoyed sitting up at the bar watching the cooking!
The food and service were good.
The staff were terrific, and the food was excellent, good choices in the menu, and finally a quality place that doesn't sound like a night club.
Delicious food, and although it is a very carnivore oriented menu, our 14 year old vegetarian tried some very new and exciting flavours and declared them all to be amazing. Thanks.
Good food, great service and was an enjoyable experience overall.
Food was fubulous. Our table wasn’t ready when we arrived on time and there didn’t seem to be a hurry to rectify the issue. I ordered a coffee which never arrived
We based our visit on reviews and when we arrived to find ourselves seated at the bar, we weren't too sure... The bar, overlooking the food preparation area turned out to be a highlight. The organised chaos of the kitchen complemented the buzz of the place and with great food an an extensive wine list, we loved it. Will recommend to friends and we'll be back.
Fabulous food. Great service. Waitress very knowledgeable and confident.
From the moment we walked in, the staff were impeccable. Our group of 4 chose the degustation option, and the wait staff were very flexible with dietary substitutions. The food was great and ambience inviting.
We will definitely be coming back :)
Service was great. Loved the beef tartare! Will definitely recommend to others!
Too many people squashed into the space. Waited 15mins for drinks to arrive. Once ordered food arrived promptly. Our table chose the tasting menu, it was ok but was expecting more after reading reviews.
Great food. Friendly staff. Ambiance a bit dry seats uncomfortable.
Great food, found the service a little lacking in sophistication.
Amazing!! The food, the staff, everything was great! We had the share menu with truffle shavings extra. The lamb was to die for, so tender. The salads were delicious and dessert incredible. Wait staff and chefs did a great job!
Efficient service particularly from male ( possibly Italian ) waiter was well timed but not obtrusive. Food was well prepared with balanced textures and flavours.
The 4 of us shared plates and ordered in two sessions to get the quantity right.
We chose not to choose and went with the chefs selection. A great variety of different foods, all delicious, even included desert. Service was prompt and all staff were lovely. We sat overlooking the kitchen which is always interesting to watch.
Great night ,food very good, service friendly and helpful
Even though we were late for our booking, staff were extremely accommodating and friendly and did not make us feel in the least bit bad for our mistake. Our waiter was so helpful in our ordering and arranged for each dish to be portioned so my guest and I could share each meal. Ambiance was great, food amazing, will definitely be bringing people back here when I visit melb again.
Perfect first night in Melbourne and cumulus impressed! Perfect food, service, wine suggestions, and company.
Riesling was recommended when we asked for a minerally white. The wine provided was sickly sweet like apple juice.
Took ages for table to be cleared after meal finished.
Had to look around to try to get the waiter attention twice - but he was too busy talking to colleagues.
Food beautiful but the dinner took 30mins longer than it should purely because the table wasn’t waitered properly - which is not good business for you if you want to get as many people through per night.
Great long lunch!
Amazing food, amazing service! Had a fantastic waitress.
It is a rare occasion that I write a bad review for a Melbourne restaurant, but I must be having a bad run - we found Cumulus Inc, to be very disappointing. The staff seemed completely disinterested in us being there - no offer to take our coats, little discussion regarding the menu...just simply not interested. Overall speed of service was good - first time in a very long time I have not tipped. The seating was comfortable and the presentation interactive and fun - we sat at the bench overlooking the kitchen. The wine selection was ok and the offer of a good French wine by the glass, pleasant to see. We kicked off with the beef tartare, which was excellent, but that is where it ended. The kitchen charcuterie selection was ok, but came with nothing to eat with it and we needed to chase up some bread. We decided we did not really want small plates, so we had the sirloin steak and pork cutlets - the steak was so tough it was almost inedible - in fact it was - I could not eat it. No flavour, no sauce or jus, no vegetables to offer, just some basic lettuce. The pork, while somewhat more tender, was tasteless - we have had far better steak and pork in the Bull and Barley Inn in Cambooya, QLD. We were not asked how our meals where - even though it was unfinished. Simply very disappointing.
Food was lovely but service was surprisingly poor.. they served bread with no plates, near hour before the food came out and no one was interested in asking if we wanted dessert or coffee at the end of a meal. Unfortunately the service was shockingly poor, not sure why this restaurants rates so well in Melbourne. I have been here for breakfast a few times and it was a similar experience so I thought the lunch service would be much better, however not the case.
Casual and relaxed atmosphere with very friendly staff. We sat at the counter and enjoyed watching the chefs prepare the meals. We ordered the set menu which was great value for money and super tasty. We went back for breakfast during our stay which was amazing as well.
Consistently great food, service and ambience. Every time I go I am reminded how good Cumulus is for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Great service makes a difference and everyone was fantastic.
We always put ourselves in the chef's hands to put dinner together – not only is it always great, it's also excellent value for money. Everything about the Cumulus experience feels completely thought through, yet it presents as a comfortable and relaxed, friendly and informal. In a city of great restaurants, Cumulus shines for its produce-driven menu, superb service and easy ambience. Always a winner.
Amazing food as usual... everything has so much flavour.
The food was delicious. We had mainly vegetarian meals which were cooked to perfecrtion. The Jerusalem artichoke and cauliflower salad was delicious. I most definintely recommend Cumulus inc to a friend.
Awesome food, awesome service wine very expensive .
Wonderful food and staff, were able to accommodate every request and even picked a menu for us based on our needs
Service slow and disappointing at times but the food is worth the wait
Always a must when you have a weekend in Melbourne either for Breakfast for Lunch. Food is always fabulous
The food is SO GOOD, everything on the menu is something you WANT to eat. Would come back again and again.
The service and the food were superb.
