As a few friends of mine live local we have been to the calamvale hotel on a few different occasions. The food is okay - the steaks often come out medium-well when asked for medium-rare, the entrees are alright and the portion sizes are pretty big. You get the feeling most of the staff aren't interested in working their and most of the time service is pretty average. The ambience and quality of food definitely needs to be worked on if they continue to demand their current prices. - Brynn
Its a little confusing to read so many reviews that are so old - I have been to dinner here on 5 or 6 occasions over the last year and have found the food first class. Service is okay and reasonable value for money - they have recently done a MAJOR revamp and the result is excellent.
The majority of the food in their steak and seafood restaurant is pretty good, but I really dislike the fact you have to line up to order your meal. Also, the last time I went the waiter, standing at the other end of the table, just hands me my plate, forcing me to rise out of my chair, and reach for it; instead of placing it in front of me, like waiters at every other restaurant does. The time before that, the "sticky date pudding" I was looking forward to digging into, ended up being a mushy, watery pile of dough with water having seemingly replaced the butterscotch sauce. Not being too fussy a person, I took a spoonful of the mush; but could not force myself to eat the rest.
This venue has some major issues. The bar staff are very young and very inexperienced. Our drink orders were incorrect on numerous occasions and they just didn't seem to know the cost of drinks, some of which seemed suspiciously exorbitant. There were only two drinks in the order - that's not a lot to get wrong! My mate and I accepted this with a knowing shake of the head and accommodated this for a while when suddenly he was refused service by the bar staff. He rightly questioned the decision as he was nowhere near intoxicated or approaching inebriation at the time. He was then informed that six beers constitutes "Too much" in a pub setting. Understandable if the six beers were six buckets of beer I guess. I'm still wondering at why you'd knowingly serve someone six beers if you knew this was too much. Surely a warning statement such as "Hold up - you've had five beers mate, you'll turn into a wombat if you have another one" might have done the trickread more
I will never return to the Calamvale Hotel or the Pressure Lounge ever again. Not only were there obvious displays of bad costumer service by bar staff and door staff on arrival. (Having my change almost thrown in my face apon paying entry) Apon leaving the pressure lounge to fetch a ride home unprovoked one of the door staff thought it would be funny to spray me in the face with glass cleaner. This was followed by a verbal reaction by me (naturally alcohol + an unprovoked attack of glass cleaner). No physical actions of treats were made, however the bouncers thought it was appropriate to slap me with a life time ban. When I contacted Management they pretty much told me that no action would be taken against the staff member involved as my verbal reaction voided that staff members misconduct. What a poor excuse! The staff member goes unpunished, because of a verbal altercation which would never have taken place in the first place - hadnt I been attacked.read more
