Rockpool was exceptional, if a little expensive. Excellent food and service, with a massive, well-curated wine list. If, like me, you love delving into wine lists, I suggest that you arrive 20 minutes before your guest/s. Loved the atmosphere of the restaurant but found the acoustics of the bar made for difficulty in having a conversation. I will 100% return. More

I booked dinner for my husbands birthday, also noted it on the booking. The waitstaff for our area seemed very flustered, despite mostly empty seats and generally ignored us minus the required 1 x drink order and 1 x food order. Other areas were also celebrating their birthdays and were presented with cakes, but we had nothing. Food was INCREDIBLE, three milk cake was to die for, but overall expected more attentive service for a $300 bill. Upon leaving we did receive 3 very cheerful goodbyes 🙄 More

I had a great night on Saturday, I was there celebrating my birthday with a large group and had no troubles altering my booking last minute over the phone- the staff were very accommodating! Also had a last minute need to stash my gifts at the restaurant and the staff accommodated me quickly, and when I picked them up the next day it was all good! The food was great too, only minor feedback is that the pizza cooled down very quickly. A huge thanks to the staff member who helped take photos for us too! Additionally a friend of mine was vegan and the waitstaff she asked seemed very confident and well-versed in the vegan options! More
