Food was lovely. Considering we were a 35 person function, the quality didn't suffer, from entrees to dessert (thank you chefs and cooks). The fish was perfect, the gnocchi was fluffy and tasty, the tiramisu was better than I've had in a long time. Helen is so warm and welcoming and such a professional...if she owned the place, I'd have every function there, hands down. She's a real asset. Thank you to the waiters and bar staff, also. But...like has been mentioned so many times before...the owners are simply not customer service people. Prickly, unfriendly, unwelcoming, snobby...every little thing is an inconvenience, they can't talk to you nicely...You just feel uncomfortable and disliked in their presence. You can't work in hospitality if you don't like people. Or if the only guests you can tolerate are a particular 'type'. Sadly, they will alienate too many patrons and too many staff. See less

A Mediterranean inspired restaurant @pierfarm Offers not only amazing food and drinks but also fantastic views. Located on a pier at Williamstown with a view of the city, this restaurant serves the freshest of fresh seafood besides woodfired pizza, cocktails and desserts. The whole fish of the day is the star of their menu, which is a must if you love fish, otherwise, definitely go for the Lamb Rack or the Duck. We started off with a glass of Aperol Spritz and a Lemon, Lime and Bitters. Both were equally refreshing to drink. For Entrees, we had a plate of Lamb Cigars with tzatziki sauce and Hervey Bay Scallops. The cigars were absolutely mouth melting and so perfect in taste whereas the scallops were immensely creamy, soft and flavorful. We had seafood tortellini with prawns and crab filling pasta in a tomato sauce. The sauce was the key player in this dish that made it incredibly mind blowing and tasty and the tortellini complimented so well with the flavors of the sauce. The whole baby snapper was cooked to utmost perfection, and was served with a bell pepper sauce and fresh arugula. The flavors of the bell pepper, capers and olives sauce went beautifully with the simple yet delicious taste of the snapper. The freshness of the snapper hits you right from the very first bite. For desserts, we had their popular Bombe Alaska, that has a filling of a simple yet yummy sponge cake, on a torched meringue. Also we had a creme brulee and the taste of this creme brulee was so balanced with the flavors of the vanilla custard. So as you can see, anybody is bound to fall in love with this place, where the lovely vibes and the views are also the charms of this place, besides the polite and kind team of staff and their prompt service. Moreover, this place is perfect for celebration of milestones or birthdays or anniversaries. Why not make a reservation @pierfarm this week to check out their great food and the views they offer?

I’m so surprised this place only has 3.7 ratings because when I went my experience was lovely! Firstly the venue is beautiful, very boho and I would 100% recommend for events, it’s stunning. The food was absolutely gorgeous! It’s very fresh and the quality based on a number of similar venues I’ve been to in Melbourne is amazing with the freshness of the seafood. I mean I’m not a seafood expert by any means, I took my mama who is definitely better at knowing if food tastes how it’s meant to and she absolutely loved it. Staff were friendly, and I saw them with other customers being very friendly and hospitable also. Check out my images below! Im a food blogger FYI which is why they so extra! (Full disclosure - I was invited here on behalf of the restaurant to review via my blog - review is true of experience). See less

Great views & location & restaurant nicely decorated! Female staff that looked after us was pleasant but the male who could be the owner was very short & came across rude & arrogant it seemed as if he couldn’t wait to get us out of the restaurant quick enough he was clearing the table while 2 out of our party 4 were still eating! He also removed our entrees & sides & we hadn’t finished eating them & one of our friends was left without cutlery when the mains were served! Food was average for Rockpool prices & we ordered 2 espresso martini’s to finish the night & while drinking them they turned on the lights on full telling us it’s time to leave.....why serve the cocktails & not allow us time to drink them! This just added to a bad experience which could have been avoided if they had allowed us time to enjoy the night without feeling rushed especially when the bill was a considerable amount! Won’t be rushing back until they improve their service. See less

Ah what a stunning lunch at my local wonderful restaurant Pier Farm in Williamstown. Waterfront, city views followed by one of the best dining experiences you can have. The food never disappoints and I feel we have a new experience each time as I love to try the specials. Today was fish of the day and as much as I love fish it can sometimes be bland, but not at Pier Farm, the chef is a legend every mouthful was absolute heaven! You must try! One side of the restaurant is very relaxing for couples and the other side caters for families including pizzas for all which is great for the kids too. Id still go the fish, steak or pasta or all three ha ha! The only let down is the owner the man is quite prickly, the wait staff and his wife are so wonderful so don't let him put you off, I'd seriously give 5 stars if not for him so ignore him and you will enjoy!!

The staff are amazing and the food is generally good. Tonight we experienced the owner George who was a bit of a know it all. He was arrogant and extremely rude! For years we have been coming here and had wonderful service but we won't be coming back. Unfortunately 2 bad meals were served and there was no apology. For a fine dining restaurant we expect good service and conduct. George lets his team down. Such a shame! See less

My partner and I came here tonight and we were Extremely impressed with the service from our waitress and the manager they were both fantastic hostesses. Nothing was to much trouble and the food was superb smallish menu but amazing food they really nailed every dish we ordered which is what you want when you come to a restaurant very high quality food and an amazing atmosphere. If I had to give any feed back it would be to add more locally sourced seafood dishes. Good job guys keep up the great work we will definitely be back. See less

Restaurant is located at the beautiful picturesque pier. Sitting at the restaurant you will feel as if you are in a different world. Wait staff were friendly and suggested some good dishes to try. Best if you are into seafood. We tried few different dishes mostly sea food and they were all delicious. The pizzas look amazing. It is from a real wood fired oven. The only negative is the people behind the bar looked very grumpy and unfriendly. We were received by the lady and she was not smiling nor welcoming. It seemed like they were not happy at all. Not a great outlook when u enter the restaurant and see sad faces at the start. They could be the owners as they looked like one or may be managers See less
