My husband and I had dinner here on 24/1/14 and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
I'm not sure which planet some of these other reviews are from as we found our experience to be one of good food, excellent service and care, taken with everything connected with the meal.
The staff were very pleasant and the service was good on this busy evening. We would recommend this restaurant as one to put on your list of enjoyable dining experiences. Bon Appetit

Terrible food and waitress were rude when confronted about the sub standard food. Free dessert was offered but damage was done expensive for a low quality restaurant would not advise anyone to dine there!

Been here a couple of times, second time as was given a gift voucher.
Juliana's is a perfect example of why hoteliers in general shouldn't operate restaurants.
Although the food is adequately cooked, the menu is boring and uninspired. It's cooking by numbers. The staff are perfectly adequate but have no enthusiasm and seem to just be going through the motions.
Life is to short for average.

We went for valentines was disappointed that no effort had been made to enhance setting expected there to be candels on tables at least. Staff were very attentive to the point of being intrusive, I did not need to be asked three times how my meal was. Unfortunatly steak was not cooked to order. Weird to have fried gnocci.
About waht should be expected for a motor lodge restaurant

Food was standard restaurant fare, quite well presented, nothing wrong with it but not special either. Friendly and attentive staff. New decor quite sophisticated but not very welcoming. High-backed chairs are HORRIBLY uncomfortable - couldn't wait to leave. Won't go back again because of them.

Went for the first time on Saturday night with 2 other couples. The new restaurant does feel a little like being inside a fish bowl looking out to Devon Street. Although I had a very nice meal and I thought the staff were very good. Handled the birthday boy well, I don't this it is anything on the old Juliana's and they have "short-changed" their brand. It is a nice middle of the road, venue & menu and not the high end that the name draws anyone that had dined at the Juliana's on the 1980-90's.
