"Food is consistently good and every dish considering I've tried 70% of the menu is either above average or outstanding. It's rare to find a Japanese restaurant with a unique twist but this place does it brilliantly!"

Ishiya Japanese Stonegrill is probably one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. We went last night and had the four person set menu. Each Dish was unique and delicious and the Wagyu the best meat I have ever tasted. The service could not have been better. Can not recommend this more highly.

"Great service makes such a difference when dining out. Someone greeting you at the door, taking you through the menu, making suggestions and checking on you during your meal. [It went] from just a plate of food to a memorable experience."

"What impressed me the most about Ishiya was the innovation of some of the dishes. I was already impressed with the quality cuts of meat, but their a la carte menu had some options that used contemporary presentation techniques with flavours that skirted around sweet, savoury, sour and citrus. "

"Consistently diamond service here and the food is amazing. The staff are so attentive and really offer genuine friendly service. The food, of course, is also just as superb. I could not rate it highly enough. If I could I'd rate it 10 out of 5 ! "

"An intimate place with traditional Japanese decor. Food was fantastic. Most restaurants claim to have "Wagyu", this place truly does have Wagyu. Deep marbling to the meat that I've not seen anywhere else in Melbourne "

"The restaurant itself is immaculate, the furnishings and lighting complimenting the atmosphere inside, the service was beyond impeccable and the food was out of this world. The Wagyu beef, Soft Shell Crab and Scallops are all absolutely divine and perfect examples of Japanese cuisine"
