I used to love going to Balsamic for their fine food and good customer service, however in recent times they have dropped a lot of their menu delights, such as the beef hamburger, and now have a limited venue. The quality of the food is fair but the commitment from the management has lost me a lot. A shame because I used to love going there before and after the movies or just for a night of fine dining. A real need to improve before I return. Disappointing.

I ordered the Thai Beef Salad. Sounded amazing! Didn't taste so great. Salad was pretty good but the beef wrecked the dish. It was over cooked (tough). Waste of money!

We are really sorry to hear that your beef salad was over cooked. Its a great dish when cooked well & certainly suffers if over cooked. We would love to send you a voucher to give it another go & if you can email me at richard@balsamic.com.au with your contact information.

Great for a meal before a movie or after shopping. Staff friendly and large menu to choose from. Bar area is always busy but it is nice to have it divided from the restaurant so there is no noise. Definitely recommend for a lovely meal.

We have been to this restaurant twice in the past couple of months as it offers good food at reasonable prices. The staff are friendly and the service is quick which is good as it is opposition Hoyts and lots of people go for a meal before seeing a movie. There is also a bar area off to one side, but divided from the main restaurant where live music was playing the night we last went.

Enjoyed sharing the three dip entree and then the paella was very good, lots of seafood and a mild curry saffron rice. My wife enjoyed the calamari which was very tender.

All in all a good place to eat.
