Gilson’s is a very reliable restaurant. From breakfast through to dinner there is always a dish to suit your appetite. And it has been my experience that they are more than happy to make modifications to a dish when requested. The service is quick, polite and friendly. The venue is modern and clean. My only complaint ( and it’s not really) is that it can get a bit noisy.
This local is a winner.

BEST CHICKEN PARMA I’VE EVER HAD! Tender, juicy chicken, quality toppings and outstanding crispy crumb! Perfect side salad and chips too.

Food and service was fantastic - had seen ‘disco tunes’ from 9pm on the menu however it was extremely quiet for a Friday night and we were handed the bill at before 10pm.
Not the atmosphere I thought it would be.

I love the lowkey, European, dimly lit, quiet and tasteful vibe of Gilson. The food was beautifully cooked, good portion sizes, and just overall unfussy. A new favourite

Review given based on unavailability of menu items and ingredients and incorrect orders being put through. Despite this, service was still good!

The service was the worst part of the night by far. We were given two drinks menus for a table of four people - which were only given to the men at the table. After ordering drinks, we were not given any food menus until we asked for them. The water jug at the table was never replaced, and our dishes all came out at different times. We were never asked if we wanted another drink after finishing our first drinks, and were never asked how we were going throughout the whole night. Although the service was poor, the food was good, however I will not be going back.

The service and ambience was excellent, and despite being on par with any relaxed fine dining establishment, they have a great children’s menu and we were made to feel very welcome, complete with colouring in.

My trout on caponata was exquisite, their wine list and aperitifs a delight, and I will be happily returning.

There was no gluten free bread for 2 of my friends and they weren’t offered a reduction in cost!
A weekend surcharge on Mother’s Day was disappointing.
I had 3 text messages & a phone call about my 8am booking. As the restaurant only had 2 other customers at 8am it created unnecessary entries in my calendar.
Very poor value for money.
After eating breakfast at Gilsons for the past few years before the Mother’s Day Classic, we will go elsewhere next Mother’s Day

Gilson is in a lovely spot, opposite the Royal Botanic Gardens and relatively close to the arts precinct. We had an early concert and the staff were aware of that and things moved speedily. We couldn't linger but we were pleased with the rhythm that got us where we were going in ample time. It was a remarkable mild autumn evening and Gilson added to our enjoyment.

Loved our dinner. We had an early dinner at 6:30pm. Staff were excellent. We shared two entrees and a main. All superb. The main (a pasta dish) we shared, was brought out on two plates. A nice touch! Will definitely come back.

Food quality was very poor given the price point. Polenta chips were exceptionally undercooked and pesto was flavourless and watery.

We didn't mind our dinner at Gilson, but in a town with so many fantastic restaurants and cafes, we found this place to be a little underwhelming. Service was slow, my meal was not what I expected, etc. It wasn't bad, but we thought it could have been better.

We should have been informed we were going to be asked to leave at a specific time when we booked.
Our table that was apparently in the way of an other booking for 30 guests.

We had organised a lunch to get together with my three sons in Melbourne who were coincidently in Melbourne on the same day from interstate and overseas
You need to do more to have the noise absorbed or abated.

I did notice the work that had been done in the ceiling, concrete floors, walls, glass don't help, perhaps some wall hangings or absorbing panels

I am familiar with Gilson as it is my local restaurant and I asked my friends and siblings to dine there for a catch up. None had been before and all 5 loved it and we had a great evening. Beautiful food, great wines and service.

We ordered two pizzas and a pasta. Both pizzas arrived at seperate times - I think one was forgotten on the order. Both pizzas were severely under cooked. Both having very thick bases that were uncooked and goey. The ingredients on the pizzas were also under cooked, potatoes. Pizzas were returned to the kitchen and cooked further but returned tough on the outside and still uncooked on the inside. Very disappointing considering we have been to The Gilson on many occasions and experienced good food. Wait staff did not follow up post meal nor did they clear our table. We paid our bill at the bar before leaving.

I came to Gilson for my birthday a few weeks ago with a party of 16. From the moment we arrived the service was appalling- we had to repeatedly ask for a menu, call the waiter over and practically rail road him to take a drink order. Never once were we asked if we would like a drink? Or whether we were ready to order, but rather had to flag someone down, even when it came to menus we had to ask for these. Drinks were ordered and took 20 minutes to arrive, meals were forgotten and then we were assured these would be taken off the bill, which they were not. At the end of the evening we were rushed out of the venue despite being told it closes at midnight by one of the waiters- it was not even 11pm.

When I book somewhere for a large party of guests for a special occasion, I expect decent service or at least to be acknowledged and orders to be taken without constantly having to wave someone over. The service was absolutely disgusting. Living in the area I would often take friends and relatives here for dinner/ breakfast, however after this awful service I will not be coming back.

This restaurant is our brilliant new find and we will definitely return to try breakfast and lunch. Gilson's shows attention to detail in food and service, lovely interiors and mature experienced staff. Discrete table service while still being warm and friendly. Amazing Pizza selection and offers a great Sunday Pizza package evening starting at 4 pm and a locals Tuesday night package. Highly recommend.

Loved the food. Crap service. This was a first visit and initially I thought they were perhaps understaffed in a full restaurant.
Even after an hour and a half the restaurant was quieter but the service did not improve.
Gilson is not alone tapering off the service as the night progresses. Even had to stand up to approach the wait staff to ask for the bill. Would like to return to experience more of the food though.
