Cool atmosphere but food is less than average. I wouldn’t say you get value for your money in terms of the food.

First time @ the City Grounds...wow this place is popular we arrived 10 mins early and was told to come back in 10 thought ok that's unusual when we did get seated we had wonderful service, food was great and we enjoyed killer cocktails. Our friend was turning 50 and we were lucky to have 3 waiter's come over and sing happy birthday and a complementary cake slice to share all in all excellent...one drawback is no toilets on site : (

The decor reminds me of an old english or irish pub, the food was really good and it was a nice place to catch up with friends.

Great place to have a nice long lunch, if you choose to. It's very busy on a Saturday, but the staff are very efficient and friendly, know the menu and offer suggestions.
Had a really nice lunch and coffee was very good.

I had been to the Grounds previously so was excited to return. I ordered the 3 egg Omelette and it was delivered cold and overloaded with mushrooms and my partner ordered an Iced Chocolate which we never received. The tea I ordered took 26 minutes to be delivered. A very disappointing $60 spent for breakfast for two.

I love eating here but I don’t think the desserts are very good and certainly not good value at $17.
However the staff are delightful young people and I do love the grain and roasted veggies salad with a serve of beef on top. I will keep coming back and just get a dessert elsewhere if I need one.

Nothing much to add it is not helpful to force consumers to say something when they don’t want to - I just wont complete your feedback anymore which is self defeating don’t you think?

Lovely ambience for breakfast. High energy in the place. Really lovely friendly staff. Just very busy and you may have to wait to get a seat if you hit a busy time. There may be time pressure on getting out before a booking to follow you. Deconstructed hot chocolate is lovely.

Some of the high tea's food were great, but some were ok. Scones are too dry to our tasting. Interior of the place is awesome. Love the ambience though. Staff are friendly.

There was a long queue to wait to be seated, I don't know why it was taking so long or why they couldn't have more than one person greeting and seating. The gas was out in the building so you couldn't have hot food. Unfortunately we were only told this once we were inside and seated, and not while we were waiting in the long queue beforehand. We ended up having salads and they were delicious. We were also offered a complimentary dessert to share between two as an apology, which was a nice gesture.

We were very early for our booked table for 4, miscalculating the time taken for a previous engagement.
The very gracious restaurant manager was able to seat us within 5minutes of our arrival.Many thanks as we thought we were in for a long wait

This is my favourite restaurant by far. The food is exceptional, the interior decor is photoshoot-worthy, the staff are not just polite and competent but also friendly and charismatic, and the prices are surprisingly good for the quality and creativity of the meals. I take all my friends and out-of-town guests to the grounds of the city. :)

I've been here previously and the food was excellent. This time however I ordered a T-Bone, medium rare, and it was horrible. Simultaneously stringy and bland. I don't get it.

After lunch I ordered a long black and it was so bad I couldn't finish it.

The service however, was excellent.

So 1/3.

Our daughter and son-in-law and their two daughters came from overseas to visit us (me and my wife). On this day our daughter had other engagements so it was the five of us. It was quite an experience and we all had a good time.

Place was too noisy for my liking. The high tea was nice but some little savoury hot things would have been good. A bit too much sweet and not quite enough savoury. Enjoyable nevertheless.

We enjoyed my friend's birthday brunch at the Grounds. The atmosphere was interesting and the dessert and coffee was nice. However the service felt very rushed and impersonal, and the value for the food wasnt great. There are many other locally owned cafes I would rather support than a revolving door place like this.
