I ordered a s’more and a bacon and egg sandwich today (12/8/21). When I got home I noticed the sandwich was missing the bacon. I went back and let the staff know and they took it to the kitchen - I assumed to remake it. When I got home I noticed it was the exact same sandwich (including the original single bite that had been taken), but they had just added some bacon to it. Around half an hour had passed between when the food first came out and when the ‘replacement’ was received - the bread (now soggy) and egg were still warm so they must have been heated. I don’t really think it’s acceptable to take partially eaten food back into the kitchen during a hard lockdown See less

It took longer than desired to be acknowledged/greeted upon arrival, eventually, a very unenthusiastic host mumbled 'come this way' and took us to our table. Once we were seated, the menus were tossed on our table like they would be at a pub, not even handed to each of us. We ordered: Gnocchi, Octopus, potatoes and Leaf salad - underwhelming, tiny portions which are not worth the price (yes I'm aware it's meant to be "fine dining"), and bland. Not to mention, my partner was pretty much forced into adding truffle in his Gnocchi, for an extra $15, because as another unenthusiastic waiter said, 'it will make it taste better'. We left still hungry! No issues with the timing of the food arrival, that was the only plus. The ambiance... There wasn't! Albeit it is such a beautiful setting, the vibe did not match. Very cold, unwelcoming and you feel you want to be out of there ASAP! Upon departure, we were handed the bill by a silent host, no questions asking how we enjoyed ourselves, no thanking us for dining there, not even a goodbye, nothing. Zero customer service skills from the staff, in fact most looked sad and as though they couldn't be bothered. Considering we were super excited to dine at Matilda, we were left extremely disappointed with the whole experience, from the moment we walked in, right to the very end. I am criticising heavily I know, but when you go to a top tier restaurant that you're paying big $$$ for, you are inclined to have certain expectations, and sadly, Matilda didn't meet any of them.

The food was absolutely delicious, loved the atmosphere and the service was flawless. We had oysters, the spanner crab (incredible!), steak and duck for mains and apple tarte tin for dessert (which I’m still thinking about weeks later). Perfect for a fancy night out. See less

Went there last Friday night as a group of four. I'm not sure if we just caught the place at a bad night but overall the experience was disappointing with the food generally being just "ok" although there were some highlights. For snacks: We all really liked the bread - note that you are charged for this. The salmon roe tartlet was also pretty tasty but the kangaroo tartare did not have a strong flavour and I certainly did not get the distinctive kangaroo flavour For starters: the lamb ribs were pretty nice and juicy and one of the better dishes over all. The woodfired beetroot had quite subtle flavours and was just "ok" For mains: The barramundi was good but the pork and Altair steak were again "ok". The duck looked like it was cooked just right but it was tough and the fat on the skin was still white. For the sides: the Brussel sprouts and Jerusalem Artichokes were pretty good. However while smoked potatoes had a good flavour they were under cooked which really took away from the experience. We mentioned this at the end of the meal and they took these off the bill. In addition to the bread the other standout was the dry martini at the start. Overall we were all disappointed, particularly given the price. Not sure if we will give Matilda a second chance given there are some many other choices, often at more reasonable prices. See less

An incredible dinner and the service was also second to none. Perfectly balanced meal and the staff ensured that we left with tummies full- an aspect often missed. We will definitely be back to this perfect representation of the food culture in Melbourne. Great job guys! See less

Sunday Brunch - love the ambience of this place. The interior is intimate and sleek much like Chancery Lane. We did order the signature crab and croque entree's but weren't wowed buy them, however the smoke potato gnochhi with pine mushroom and Wagyu bavette were a standout (we also ordered the Barramundi). Presentation and the service by the maitre d' made the experience. Great spot for a special occasion or romantic dinner. See less

Delicious food and great service. The selection for set menu are great as they give you different options and you are to select whichever dish you want. Perfectly sized meals so you can fit everything in! See less

Dinner is set menu which lacks flexibility. Starters are all great especially the pita bread, sensationally fluffy and soft. Lamb rib was very juicy and tender. However the two mains, although with extra costs, haven’t met the level of fine dining standard. Rib eye, lack the charcoal flavour and somewhat soggy, and it hasn’t been well trimmed by butcher somehow because it still has fair amount of unnecessary fat on the edge which I have never experienced in other places before. Duck is ok, but is not to the standard of signature dish, skin is crispy but lacking caramelised colour, meat is slightly undercooked, thickness undermines its flavour, thinner meat is the best companion for crispy skin duck. I like the waiter who knows the sense of humour. See less

Great dining experience and service. Delicious food from the first course to the last. Our favourite was the gnocchi and the steak. We had anniversary dinner date night and coupled with an awesome bottle of Chablis we were in our happy place. Must try! See less

Food just fabulous! Service amazing. We sat at the bar and were able to watch an amazing bartender do his magic. Plus explain the menu and advise on wines, just a great service. Lovely flavours in every dish. Thanks Scott! See less

Matilda is a incredible place with different tastes and combinations. We was a group of six and luckily we could try most of the dishes of the menu. Without any doubt, the favourite starter was the baby octopus, tender, delicious prepared. Please, that’s the right choice! About the main, I had the Duck, and I have to say the portion of meat is really big. Couldn’t finish all of it, however the fig was too small. Also, my favourite part of the dish was the side of mix of seeds (I forgot the name) and duck pate. The short rib was my favourite taste of the mains. Soft and juicy. Very nice! About the desert, the apple pie is great, good sized dessert and the chocolate mousse with coffee was delicious too. Both really nice taste. The service could be improved. We had our water glasses filled up everytime, however, our waiter was a bit rude. He asked me if he could start to take the orders with me and I said “could I be the last?”, because I wasn’t completely sure. However, he asked me same again and I reply again. He just decide give us more time. I felt very uncomfortable because everyone else was ready but because of me all of us had to wait for more ten minutes. I felt bad and couldn’t understand because he has a paper note, so why couldn’t he get my order last? Also, the dishes was to the wrong person all the times: starters, mains and desserts. Talking about dessert, we asked for a candle for the bday person dessert when we arrived for the booking, and they forgot! Luckily she was on the phone talking with someone and they had time to get the dessert back and put the candle on, which take a long time to do it. Overall, the place is beautiful and elegant, the food is great and the experience worth. See less

Food was good without being great- rump cap was a little chewy and there was little flow between dishes. Ambiance was ruined a little by another noisy party. See less

So good to be back in a restaurant for a lovely meal and will be even better when we don’t have to rush through a 2hr sitting! The ribs were fantastic, as was the rump cap and duck (special). Our dinner companions also said the spanned crab and gnocchi were fabulous so win-win all round! See less
