There was a great balance of flavours and everything was visually appealing. Our server of the night was splendid.

A great big chef’s hat off to the young crew who - although still learning - do a great job and serve a great meal. We will be back.

We were a group of 10 Inner Wheel Ladies (the female group of Rotary International). The students that served us were great especially a young lady named Jessica. The Supervisor/Manager (I believe her name might have been Daman?) that was on during our lunch service...was very rude to the ladies in our group - 9 of these ladies are in the 70's and 80's and to the students. I believe that showing proper customer service is part of the teaching for these students.More

Very enjoyable experience, nice to know you are helping the students in their culinary journey, My husband, having worked in a similar student restaurant in 1970's, felt it was wonderful to see students with a mixture of confidence, nervousness and willingness to learn. Food was...presented extremely well with excellent technical expertise. Service was attentive, minor issue as we did not receive a side we ordered- this was not followed up by server- when highlighted the server was very responsive to the feedback. Lovely setting at the Rocks in Sydney. Our intention is to visit regularly at each menu change.More

William Blue is a working classroom for students of Torrens University. The service was a bit 'green', but they are learning, so you can't really complain as they were trying hard and friendly. The menu was quite limited (3 entrees and 3 mains) all of...which we tried and were excellent. I would recommend the restaurant and I will go back.More
