Feels like a restaurant of the 90s, but the food is good (the lamb), and the wines are delicious. Not a huge fan of Australian only wines, but the som will help you find something.

Australian cuisine that doesn't disappoint. Creative cocktails that get your feeling good. Never tried kangaroo? Here's the place!

Brunch is the way to go here. Love the scone bar with various preserves. The passion fruit a standout. Can't go wrong with the coconut ricotta pancakes order and the side syrup matched up well with it. Great coffee and bloody mary's for brunch as well. Service was great and they explained everything well on the menu and answered our questions on items we weren't sure about.

Super swanky setting with tons of personality: candle lit steps, punch card menus, garage door styled window... Food is also unique and memorable. Ceviche was amazing. The venison was rather tough. I think there was a bit of tendon in the cut. Otherwise high quality food and setting for a price.

Late review. We spent New Years here. Food was good but felt a little crammed in within the restaurant. The jet lag didn't help either

Kangaroo carpaccio: smoky and so so good. Who knew? This place is a neighborhood classic, an Australian spot turning out beautiful modern food in a homey, old public library. Great cocktails and wine selection. They do a nice brunch with a self-serve baked goods table: much appreciated if you get the nibbles while waiting for a table.

My main complaint about PUBLIC has nothing to do in regards to the food, but in regards to how a mis-communication between my group and the restaurant was handled. The GM that evening did nothing to try and rectify the situation, short of calling her own staff "incompetent". Nonetheless, a few of us, including myself, opted to order a la carte. I have no complaints about the Lamb Belly, which was tender and with just the right edge of gaminess, coated with a sweet, slightly spicy honey glaze. The Berkshire Pork was also innovative, taking an Asian slant with the pairing of daikon radish, pickled carrots, microgreens, and a slow poached egg, all of which is tied together with a lightly truffled dashi broth. As a whole, the food is worthy of four stars, but the service has made my experience here one of the least pleasant to date.
