Excellent restaurant. We had the Trust The Chef which was very very good. Two different entrees & two different mains to share. Portion sizes are adequate for the quality of the food. Fantastic service. Car parking close by. Great bars close by for pre-dinner drinks.

I went to the monday room with my friends, we didn't get the degustation but we ordered 3 entree to share and 2 main plus sides... of course the deserts to finish. It was very busy ...full restaurant and the waiter (think he is from...europe) was busy but he looked after us really well considering it is the full house . The food is very tasty and I am not vegetarian or vegan but their vegetarian/vegan dishes were soo tasty. It was so tasty to impress the meat lover😉 scallops wqere cooked to perfection, ribeye and tarragon mayo was good combination, and homemade tortellini were stunning . Also the desserts..... we tried all 4. So good. Hazel nuts and chocolate was my favourite but the summer fruits was good, strawberry and coconut were absolutely delicious...will definitely go back.More

I have been here about four times in the past year, always outstanding! Great for large groups (we have had 25) and also for a nice date.

First time eating here, was so excellent! Loved the chef choice set, was incredible value and the vegan options were amazing. Really appreciated having so much variety on the menu. The bathrooms desperately need hooks for jackets/handbags and more assuring locks on the doors but...the restaurant was otherwise perfect.More

First timers, disappointed we had not gone earlier. Each of the dishes were a credit to the chef. Wine list was good, cocktails well made. Highlight was the scallop entree.

Wow! What a night. Trust the chef, omg, you can't go wrong. Everything was amazing. Food was fantastic, service was fantastic, the whole night was brilliant. The only niggle was we were very crowded. But I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend to all. I've been raving...about TMR ever sinceMore

Amazing dinner. 4 of us for dinner and have never tried a Trust the chef menu. Best idea and so glad we did it. All dishes were done gluten free as requested and everyone was impressed. Beef cheeks, Monk fish, Smoked Cauliflower the list goes...on. Service was professional but friendly. With so many places to eat these days it’s not often we say we will have to go back but this is one place we will have to go back to. Thanks guys great night.More

This is a restaurant, which provides excellent and friendly service and would have to be one of the most enjoyable dining experiences we have had for a very long time. We opted to go for the 'Trust the Chef' option and highly recommend this. This...is where a selection of dishes from their menu are placed in the middle of the table and everyone in the group shares the beautifully presented, and wonderful flavours of each dish, making it an unforgettable dining experience. The great service including a good description of every dish as it was brought to the table by staff who obviously enjoyed their jobs and making the customer feel special. Big thank you to all the staff.More

I found this place on trip advisor and my wife and I went on a date. The service was some of the best ever, so friendly, welcoming and attentive. The whiskey cocktails were amazing. The steak wasn’t as cool but my wife loved her scallops...and chicken pesto. Great presentation tooMore

Whether you have a special occasion to celebrate or just need an excuse for a dinner out, TMR will not disappoint. Only a short distance from the CBD The Monday Room (TMR), is a MUST VISIT for exceptional food. We had ordered the "Trust the...Chef" 3 course dinner and it was absolutely fabulous. From the stunning entrees, to the generously delicious main course, completed with "to die for" desserts, every dish was simply outstanding. We eat out at least once a week and have done so for some years, and in all that time have never experienced food as good as this. None of the plates served through these courses were your usual fare. Every dish was unique - and amazingly delicious. We were astounded by the range and quality of the food, something we've never experienced before. And the service was faultless. I just can't speak highly enough of this place - please be sure to make a booking. If I could give this place 10 stars I would.More
