Reviews for Ludlow Bar
We recently dined at Ludlow Bar, drawn in by its stunning location by the Yarra River and promising views. The ambiance was indeed impressive, with a lovely view of the river and a prime location. However, our experience took a downturn when it came to the food. We ordered calamari and beef rum, but unfortunately, both dishes were disappointing. The calamari was overcooked and rubbery, lacking the freshness that we were hoping for. The beef rum was also underwhelming, lacking flavor and tenderness. The presentation was decent, but the taste just did not meet our expectations. It was disappointing to have such a letdown with the food, especially after being drawn in by the location and views. The service was average, nothing to write home about but not terrible either. If you're looking for a fresh and delicious meal, we would not recommend Ludlow Bar based on our experience. It's possible that other menu items may be better, but our experience with the calamari and beef rum was disappointing. Hopefully, the management will take note and work on improving the quality of their dishes to match the scenic views.
I went to Ludlow with my partner on a wintery evening for some nice warm mulled wine and dinner. With such an excellent location and ambience, the food was average and service was a major let down. We ordered mulled wine and after 15 min, the lady who took our order came back to confirm the order again. Another 15 min later, we followed up on our order and we were informed that they ran out of mulled wine. 30 min wait for nothing. We ordered some wine and cocktails when we went to settle the bill, there was no mention of the wine we ordered but 2 mulled wines charged to the bill. We got this rectified, however the service was quite poor on a rather quiet day with very few people eating. Right next door was a packed bar and probably the service and average food is the reason this spot is avoided. I'd personally never go back again.
We’ve been there in a cold day and had a beautiful warm drink. Beautiful yarra river view. However, Beef short rib taste was not good at all. I’ve been to many restaurants and bars but don’t remember to not finish one dish even when it was not good. We (2person and one dish) couldn’t finish (eat) Beef short rib as taste was unbeatable. On other hand, I really loved Grilled Flatbread (starter), from crispy bread to zucchini and beans. Thanks 🙏

Can’t really go wrong with a parma at a place like this though I didn’t much care for the side of slaw. They should just move the chips onto that space of the plate rather than under the chicken so it’s actually easy to eat. Decent sized serving Update Visited Ludlow last night pre going to the ballet and whilst it wasn’t our first choice of venue it was the one that would take us given absolute insanely hectic scenes all the way along Southbank. Festive season celebrations are certainly in full swing! I ordered a beef burger which was a little dry and came with a pedestrian like slaw which I didn’t touch. Not the speediest service but understandable given it was quite busy. Overall an average meal Original review I've been here many times on account of living metres away for five or so years and it's always consistent paired with the lovely ambience you get from being located riverside. The bar food is well priced with a decent selection and no complaints on taste however the desserts are the standout. I personally can't resist ordering multiple. Great atmosphere particularly if you are seated outdoors.
Decent value Sunday roast and nice view If you are sitting outside. Waiter was very friendly and good service
