I made a dinner reservation at the Boundry Hotel in Bentleigh in the bistro call the grill house for a Tuesday boys night. Our table was waiting for us but surprised to see there were only maybe five tables in total being used in the Restaurant. My group were met by the Restaurant manager named Jordan in a friendly way and we proceeded to the counter to order dinner. My mates ordered their meals with Benjamin who was very obliging but when I had to order food I struck major problems with my diet requirements, especially the fact that I cannot eat garlic, onion, including garlic or onion powder in my meals, resulting in a very restricted choice at this hotel. I must admit Jordan went multiple times to the kitchen to check with the chef about the ingredients for me and totally understood my FODMAP allergies BUT it appears pretty much everything I wanted to try included garlic and onion powder such as all the schnitzels Pasta ( even Mac n cheese), lamb shanks and the list goes on and on. I personally was not in the mood to have an expensive steak and did not want to eat fish. On a suggestion I ended up getting the children’s cheeseburger and fries. Jordan bought out the food to our Table and advised me that my Junior cheeseburger or kids meal actually also had ingredients I could not eat so they were making me a normal burger patty. I must admit I never order burgers for dinner and my meal was underwhelming. Disappointing dinner on so many levels and while the service From Jordan and Benjamin were excellent the choices on the menu and the restrictions for people who have a FODMAP issue or anything similar is not really great. I can see why the local RSL is full every night with a kitchen who has a specific gluten-free kitchen and menu offering FODMAP meals but also includes seniors meals. One of my friends had the barramundi with vegetables, and his comment was the fish had no flavour. My other friend ordered a lamb dish that came with three pieces of Halumi and feta cheese. He also said it was average and actually asked for some more cheese. We agreed and must shout out the impeccable service from Jordan, the restaurant, manager, and Benjamin but must sadly say that unless the chef and menu has a wider choice to accommodate people with allergies, offers a few more specials or even senior meals, my recommendation would be to stay away from this hotel and bistro. Better value options are available in the area.

We regularly drive from south Melbourne to bentleigh especially for the steak. Today, the chef outdid himself with beef short ribs. The best I have ever eaten. Do yourself a favour and try this out for a casual Saturday lunch. You won’t be disappointed.

I went to the Boundary Hotel with my family last week. I was incredibly impressed by the service. The restaurant manager Jordan was so welcoming, helpful and attentive. It felt like we were in a fancy restaurant in the city! Brilliant to get such exceptional service. The rest of the crew were fab too! Also the food is good and my kids like the play area.

Great place for groups particularly those celebrating birthdays with or without young kids as Boundary Hotel has great little indoor play centre for them. Food has to be ordered through their app which I hate particularly when you order items from entrees page and items from mains page and they bring everything out together. Why does every place where I have ordered through app do this? Coffees (soy latte, skinny mocha and flat whites) were good and kids loved their cokes. Kids had cheeseburger and mini steak while adults had fish 'n' chips, steak sandwich and vegetarian tacos. We also ordered dips and bread to share for starters, oops I mean as another main! Note the kids steak was full of gristle and fat and only half of it was edible. Kids had mini choc sundae and black forest cake for dessert. There is plenty of room here, plenty of parking and if you are so inclined plenty of opportunities to lose your money, in their gambling room next door. The Boundary Hotel is an institution and its great that over the years they have modernised their look. 20.2.24 group of us for lunch, majority had either fish n chips, lamb rissoles or calamari from set menu. I'm vegetarian so ordered pumpkin curry off their a la carte menu. Better then thought it would be. We were all given same dessert, vanilla slice, which was OK but spoons didn't cut the through pastry, needed a knife! Lots of coffees (cappuccinos, lattes, flat whites and decaf soy latte).
