On April 11th I had my 21st birthday in the glass pavilion at Harbour Kitchen. I had high expectations for the evening, and thanks to Grace and her amazing team, the night exceeded my wildest dreams. The attention to detail and customer service we experienced not only on the night, but in the months of planning, were a testament to the excellent work ethic of the staff. All of the guests commented on the beauty of the venue, and it’s location made it a central point that everyone found easily. Looking back on my experience, there is nothing I would change about the night, so thank you to Grace and the rest of the Harbour Kitchen staff for everything you did to make my birthday perfect

Great value for money and food was spot on!

The food here is fantastic, and i would highly recommend taking in the AMAZING views of Victoria Harbour at Docklands from Harbour Kitchen. You can sit outside in their beer garden and be right next to the water or if a bad day in either the glass pavilion or in their full inside seating area. Their menu is extensive for big or small appetites, and staff are always willing to go beyond to serve you and make your experience here memorable. i believe that they also offer fully catered party events and even offer outside catering! an amazingly flexible place!

Great food/service – Inexpensive – on the water

There are several eating establishments in Docklands. This was great for a quick breakfast. Good food, no frills & clean. We went there each day for breakfast and will return.

ASCA Thank You

Hi Grace,

I would just like to say a big thanks to you, and your staff for the brilliant job you did for our ASCA Friday 13th event.

Grace, from the word go, you have been nothing but obliging, organized and efficient. Nothing has been any trouble.
Your amazing efficiency really helped to keep our stress levels down, and made Kerry and my job so much easier.

Your staff also deserve a huge pat on the back. You have them very well trained, and they worked calmly, but just so hard to keep things on track, and to solve all of our little questions and requests. Service was fantastic.

My meal was lovely, and comments on the food from our guests was positive. The brewed coffee at evenings close was also an unexpected surprise for all.

Again, on behalf of ASCA, Kerry and myself, our most sincere thanks.

We would have no hesitation in using Harbour Kitchen for future events.

Shane and Rodney’s Engagement Party

Hi Grace,
I really want to say a massive THAK YOU! We had a wonderful engagement party, thanks to you and your staff. Amazing venue, great staff and service and delicious food. Grace, you were so considerate and flexible and made sure our needs were met. Every guest there spoke so positively about their experience, they all left extremely satisfied and they have no hesitation to recommend your venue in the future. I certainly will continue to recommend Harbour kitchen any change I get!
As we discussed previously, can I please get a copy of the final account that shows the complete cost for the event, that includes “room hire and food and beverage service” and then the total amount.
If that can be either emailed to me or Rodney works at NAB at Docklands, he will come and get it. Whatever is easiest for you.
Once again, congratulations on a great party you provided for us and look forward to having another function there!!
Cheers,
Shane and Rodney

Thank you for 60th Birthday party

Dear Grace,
I was very sorry to have heard that you became sick over the weekend and we could not meet you on Sunday.
On behalf of my brother and sister, I would like to thankyou sincerely for all that you did to ensure that our function was just perfect.
Everyone commented on how beautiful the venue was. The service was just outstanding as was the food brilliant. The care that you took throughout our interactions was second to none and Jane was wonderful as she took care of all our requests so graciously and patiently.
I would also like to make special mention of the food and request that you please pass on our appreciation to the chef. It was by far one of the best meals we have had and every one of our guests commented on it.
The décor was just amazing.
So, all in all, it turned out to be a perfect day and event and I have you to thank for all your efforts in ensuring that all our needs were met.
I hope you get better soon.
With Warm Regards

Good Morning Grace,

 

I apologise that it has taken me up until now to get in touch with regarding Friday night.  It’s always a good sign that the night went well when staff are still talking about it almost a week later!

 

Thank you for reassuring me that your venue would be suitable when Melbourne’s weather is so unpredictable!  You, your staff and the security all made out night that extra special, nothing was too much of an effort and it couldn’t have gone off any better.  So, thank you once again Grace, it was a pleasure to work with you and I hope I have the opportunity to do so in the near future.

 

Wishing you a safe and Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2017.

 

 

Kind regards,

Hi Grace

 

I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and all your staff. Our function on Friday went off spectacularly.

The food was delicious and the service was amazing. The wait staff were friendly and professional.

 

We also wanted to make a special mention to our security guard, Sinan. He was reliable and always looking after all our staff. We all felt extremely safe and comfortable around him.

Everyone in the office today is talking about how much of a gentleman he was and that they would recommend him for any future functions.

 

Once again, thank you for organising such a wonderful night for us.

 

Kind regards,

Thank you from Bureau of Meteorology

Thank you very much for everything that you and your team did to help us!

You were a great support to us – in the lead up and on the day – and we all really appreciated the help you gave us in making sure things ran smoothly.

We had many compliments on the venue from our staff, with many saying it was one of the best of our Christmas functions that they remember.While the weather helped, we are sure that a large part of it was also the Harbour Kitchen team and all good wait staff that you had there for us.

Incidentally, I was also in the Docklands for New Years Eve and saw the party that Harbour Kitchen was hosting – professional as always.

Thanks again, and all the very best for the New Year in 2017!

Best Regards,
Malcolm.
