It is a nice place to hang out with. The cocktail menu was limited to only a few cocktails, that was disappointing. But the cocktails were really good. The food was good.

Chose it as a place for a farewell lunch for a colleague on a Thursday. While there were only 2 other tables of people, the background music and cool vibe of the venue ensured the team had a great time (and lunch). Food and drinks very reasonably priced (lunchtime specials available) and delicious. Wasn't my first time to Door Knock and certainly won't be my last!

Fabulous little bar in which you can actually have a conversation without yelling. Wider choice of food would be a huge benefit but we'll definitely visit again!

Bar is cool and a little hard to find. Service was slow, but drinks were good. Food was tasty. It is extremely noisy unfortunately.

Overall a great venue. Enjoyed the nice atmosphere. Food menu is limited however what's on it was quite tasty and reasonably priced. All the cocktails we had were nice, maybe slightly overpriced for the size. Would of appreciated a wider variety. The service was on and off. Sometimes felt neglected and other times they were great.

It’s very noisy, but I do like this place, we didn’t have food this time just drinks for my birthday. We purchased 4 bottles of your presecco which was $65 on your menu yet I was charged $69.00 + $1.04 surcharge total of $70.04 a bottle?? This is quite misleading & disappointing.

Very noisy and cramped, felt claustrophobic. Staff a bit too quick to remove drinks and ask if you wanted more. Not very relaxing.

I really like the vibe there but the waiter that served us was not very helpful with the questions I asked regarding the cocktail. He seem to have a bit of an attitude or had a bad day. Not in a hurry to get back as there are many other just as good cocktail bars in Sydney and with friendly staff

The food menu wasn't very well thought out. Bland, overpriced for what it was.
No phone reception at all. (good and bad i guess) but when your waiting on friends to arrive and you cant receive their calls when there outside and lost was rather an issue.

Love the unobtrusive entrance, creative (and punny) cocktail list and ambience. It was buzzy without being too loud to talk, and the complimentary truffle popcorn is a nice touch. Our waitress seemed like she was in a bad mood, but it was also a Friday night when I visited so she may have just been tired or under the pump. Overall, would recommend as a lovely cosy escape especially on a winter night, perfect for a date or a small group of friends.

Great groovy space, and interesting cocktails :) They also seem to manage well the number of people allowed in which ensures it doesn't get ridiculously packed.

Cosy bar, tucked away in the basement. Nice food selection. Good wine list. Great for dates or after work drinks. No mobile phone reception, which is great for uninterrupted conversations.

It was a girls get together, so venue really good for this. Did find it a bit noisy and struggled to hear my friends, however the music was great!!
Also loved the cosy chairs in front of the fireplace and pretty lights all around.

Great 'secret' location for a casual first date; meet across the road out the front of Jamie's Italian then lead the way through the nondescript front door, down the stairs and along the hall to open into the cosy but lively bar. Make a 'counter seating' reservation via Open Table.

Downside: The waitress didnt show any appreciation or say thanks for the ~15% tip. The waitress took the cash in a rush leaving me feeling that she thought a) I had accidently overpaid and didnt want me to realise, or b) she was entitled to receive it.
