“Good Ambiance ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

Invited a key customer for a business dinner at Wombles. Was not disappointed.
Good food, efficient service and great ambiance. The fillet steak on the bone was delicious and well prepared.
However the wine was not the greatest.
The first bottle was harsh and sour. The second was bland. Otherwise it was great dinner. Be sure to book in advance.

“Excellent again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Dined here for the second time in a month and the whole experience was once again faultless. I'd enjoyed what I'd ordered previously so much that I rather unadventurously chose the same again and didn't regret it.
Wombles is a real must visit if you're in Joburg and are looking for a quality restaurant - everything about the place is classy and worth the extra rand.
A special mention for the manager who is very friendly

“Service excellent, wine perfect, setting excellent, but food lousy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We ate with another couple who live in the area and said this was the best restaurant in Sandton and one which requires reservation long in advance. We were so looking forward to a memorable evening. It started out well with an excellent bottle of wine sitting around an open fire in the courtyard. The menu looked like a carnivore delight and we selected the 700 gram prime rib cooked medium (pink in the middle). After another bottle of excellent wine we began eating our dinner. Disappointment was our first reaction. The prime rib was very tough and tasteless. Definitely not up to the quality of the meat meals we had at several meals in Nicolway. This may have been a off night but one that would make us question returning.

“Fabulous Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Was lucky enough to have an exquisite meal there this week with friends and family. The atmosphere is set as soon as you enter the courtyard - the staff are all super friendly and attentive. The decor is stunning and al our mean were sublime. Best meal we have ever had in Joeys!

“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

Simply said... Pure perfection! We decided to try Wombles-steakhouse for our anniversary, and after reading all the reviews, had high expectations. These expectations were satisfied in every aspect! Perfect service and I emphasise the perfect, you cannot get better service in JHB. The food is on a level which leaves you unable to stop, even though you know you should, absolutely delicious.

Well done to the owners and managers of Wombles-steakhouse you have the perfect recipe for a great evening's dining!
