After advising the waitress I was a coeliac she advised me against a gluten free item in the menu as she knew it would be cross contaminated. I don’t think this item should be advertised as gluten free then. But was glad of the waitress notifying me

The restaurant was empty when we arrived at 6pm only a family at one corner. The view was fantastic but we were shown at the back of the restaurant and was told that the cruise ship blocking our view would leave in half an hour. Disappointed when it didn’t throughout our stay. Not sure why we were shoved at the back

I have dined here before and this time unfortunately did not meet previous experience. Food was amazing however service was very slow. Were waiting for drinks for over 20 minutes including during peak time and when we were the last few tables in the restaurant. Was very noisy which is to be expected with wooden floors and surrounded by glass which made conversation more yelling that speaking. Food was simply delicious and superbly priced for the stunning location.

When we first arrived, we were seated and our order was taken which all was great.

We ordered bread and oil/vinegar as starter and x2 steak as main. We found that we were waiting for quite a long time before our food had come out, but wasn’t a problem as the venue is in a beautiful setting. However we had noticed people that had ordered after us had already received their starter.

When our food finally arrived and was served by who I can only imagine was a manager as she was wearing a red shirt and the other waiters were wearing waitstaff outfits... it was to our surprise the steak. So I asked the manager/waitress where the bread was as we hadn’t received yet.. in which she said yes that’s coming out next. However we had ordered as a starter (plus is in the menu as a starter) but then the waitress had gone on to explain apparently it hadn’t been put on the docket as a starter and so she can take our steak back to wait until we had received our bread. Which we wouldn’t want to do as we had ordered our steak medium/rare and if we were to have sent the steak back it wouldn’t have tasted great if it was sat under a lamp until our bread and been served and eaten.
The waitress/manager didn’t apologise once at any opportunity.

We ate our food and then left straight away, as the whole experience was ruined by her attitude. Especially, we were sat next to wear the cutlery must be getting polished and the staff member who hadn’t apologised was stood at, what felt the whole time after this episode making it very uncomfortable to dine.

Dining on a Thursday evening and the restaurant was busy so created a nice ambiance. Fabulous view of the opera house from our table. Food was delicious however let down by my cold broccoli but this was dealt with very quickly. Nice and helpful staff.

Had requested for a table with a view but didn't receive it even though the booking was made days in advance. Menu was very limited and didn't have much variety. Service was very slow. Even our drinks took atleast 15 mins to arrive at the table. Food was not great. Both my partner and I had an upset stomach in the night post the dinner. Not worth the expensive pricing. One of the server unintentionally even commented about how I as a girl would like the sugary/sweet beer over the normal or bitter/dark beer as 'most girls prefer that", I'm sure he didn't do that intentionally but he should have probably framed that sentence in a better manner without any discrimination. Besides that I didn't have any other complaint against their service besides the slow service. The crowd there is mainly for the view I guess. Did not meet my expectations as I was really looking forward to it to celebrate my anniversary.

I found the menu to be minimal and basic. Prices were inflated (probably because of the view). Table service was slow
Basically felt like a tourist trap.

This is the email I sent to them on Monday, 17th June 2019 which has yet to be responded to.

Hi

Just wanted to provide some feedback on the dining experience my family had in the restaurant on Saturday, 15th June 2019 (9:30PM Reservation).

Once again the staff were fantastic as they always are as we visit regularly.

The issue I have is with the pricing of the set-menu for vegetarians. One of our party ordered the gnocchi and the caramel tart. Which have a combined cost normally of $50 but on the night we are charged $65. Extremely, poor value for a bowl of potato pasta and a slice of a tart. And to be honest it spoilt what had been an amazing night.

It appeared that the only customers that got any sort value from the set menu were those order the steak.

I can only suggest that a reduced price for vegetarians or a more complex dish be on offer the next time a set-menu is offered.

The price of the set course was extortionate considering what you got. The starter was very small and the main was bulked up with shared chips and a salad. Very dissapointed.

Amazing service and ambiance. The food was a bit underwhelming for the price, but still decent. They also catered to my request for a table by the window by giving us the best seat in the house Overlooking the opera house. Was the perfect spot for a date and a great overall experience.

Very poor customer service, I did mention this was for an important event and yet the seating was poor and uncomfortable.

What made it worse, is that we ordered two $68 mb9 rump (wagyu) , it was dry and they even didnt match what the menu offered. It was suppose to come with grilled onion but it came with purple cabbage.

We mentioned this and the waited said that , I quote" oh maybe it was a little dry"

We didnt make a fuss, but we are surely never returning or recommending to anyone

Poorly spent $186 for two on a sunday.

It’s a great location with an awesome vibe, only downside was that was paid for the set menu, we weren’t offered dessert, we’re never offered a second round of drinks even though we all had empty glasses when our mains came out and then had to chase up our bill from staff. Really disappointing especially because we made the trip from Wollongong just to come up for dinner.

Perfect view of the most beautiful harbour in the world (when a ship is not in). Food is always great - not the biggest selection, but you don't need it. Staff could not be more attentive - always came to us at the right times. Never had to wait for anything. Don't forget the dessert - Chocolate Fondant is always my favourite. Has to be one of my favourite dining restaurants in the Sydney CBD at present.
