Taxi Dining Room Review

Occupying an innovatively designed steel-and-glass space above Federation Square, Taxi boasts both extraordinary food and spectacular views over Melbourne. East meets west on a menu that combines Japanese flavors—soy tuna tataki, caramelized orange and Sake Lee sauce—with such European-inspired fare as slowly braised lamb shoulder with a roasted lamb loin and saltbush jus. There is also an impressive list of new- and old-world wines. To taste some of Australia's best craft beers, have a pre-meal drink at the Transport Bar on the ground floor.

    Great food, great service, high prices

    We were able to walk in on a weeknight by taking seats at a bar, side-by-side, but were told otherwise they booked a week in advance. The food and wine were exceptional, as was the service. My only question is whether the prices are justified, although I grant there is a class of restaurants with similar prices. But going to a place I can't even cover on a corporate expense account is a luxury I can't afford to repeat too often.
