We booked a table for some anniversary drinks.

When we arrived, the guy did not check if we had booked into the covid safe app. He just asked if we had.
They did not ask if we already had a booking, i had booked this well in advance as i wanted a table with chairs due to ongoing back problems i visit a chiropractor twice a week. We were seated on bar stools with no backs, i had to inform the guy that we did have a booking and then he went off. I called over another person and told them that we wanted seated at an actual table as thats what i booked. I was informed that they were very busy and he will try, whilst there was a free table in the corner all along and we could see it.
We were then seated at this table.

No one came to our table after that to see if we were ok and wanted to actually order. I had to call and raise my hand 3-4 times to try and get someones attention. Eventually my Girlfriend was fed up and shouted at someone who was walking past who then took the order.
After getting the drinks i asked him to leave the cocktail menu and he just rushed away and lifted the menu that i specifically asked to keep.

After we were nearing the end of the first drinks i had the same process again to get the cocktail menu, raising my hand and trying to grab the attention of someone going past to get the menu (which is why i wanted to keep it i knew it would take a long time to get again)
We got the menu eventually and the same process again to order the drinks, we ordered new drinks and then the waiter tried to take my drink when it was not finished, i had to say hey thats not finished!!!
The second round of drinks arrived and only then we eventually got glasses of water to the table after 1 full hour of being there. The waiter didnt even say anything if we were happy if we wanted tap or bottled water, he just plonked the glasses down and went off quickly.
After these drinks we thankfully left.

This was the worst service experience ive ever had in my life!!!!!

I want to say the cocktails (and the truffle popcorn) are the best thing about this place but honestly you can't beat the service! What a team of fun, passionate and helpful staff. I can't wait to come back!

This was one of the best date spots I’ve been in Sydney! The speakeasy feel of the bar made it feel exclusive and secluded. The cocktails were out of this world, the food was fantastic, and the fortified selection couldn’t be matched. The highlight was the staff - every single staff member went out of their way to be genuinely delightful. From cocktail and sherry recommendations, to their general chats and hospitality, we felt like we were welcomed into a good mate’s home. Thanks guys! Keen to come back!

Food and drinks are worth the price. I spilled my drinks and they offered me to replace it for free. They are tentative to the customers and their needs. I ate my chicken wings with my hands and they gave me tissue without me asking for it. They refill your water if they see you need it.

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!

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.

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
