Great breakfast and lunch menu and good value. Overpriced and limited dinner menu. Good bar atmosphere. Efficient, friendly service.

The family dined in at Woods during one if our many visits to the Parkview Melbourne

The service was good the staff polite and well versed with the menu.

The eye fillets were amazing and the kids meals were the largest I have ever seen... The kids could not finish them.

Overall a good night out, not cheap but still good value

We only had breakfast here but going on the food that was served up I'm sure that any meal had here would be excellent. Staff were also very friendly and helpful and go out of there way to make sure you had everything you asked for.

Friday night at the Parkview, StKilda Rd Melbourne on the Romance package included dinner and breakfast at Woods. The food we had was excellent - entree of oysters kilpatrick with FULL glass of sparkling followed by Gippsland eye fillet steak with sides of steamed mixed veges and roasted pumpkin with walnut crunch. The presentation was excellent, steak cooked perfectly, with sides that were generous, and flavoursome. Desserts were disappointing, but we had certainly eaten enough before then. Prices were a little high but we were very happy with the evening. Breakfast the following was plentiful - certainly everything was readily topped up, but as usual there were problems keeping things warm/hot - especially the poached eggs. Nice selection of breads, etc. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed the package and would return for another special occasion.

Late lunch at Woods but still very enjoyable. We had the Chicken Parma with salad and chips and it was freshly cooked and nicely served. A glass of 'bubbly' was included.
