ARIA Sydney Ratings and Reviews
While this is a wonderful setting with great views, the food was pretty average and not as we would have hoped given all the reviews. DIdn't think the value was there for the price. The bass was barely flavorful and the potato side dish was a soupy mess. We had such better meals along the Barangaroo and were saddened this was not as good for the prix fix price.
the minute you walk in you get the sense that you will be taken care of for the night, there was so many staff welcoming you when you arrive, it was a great experience, especially for my kids that also accompanied us for dinner,
if i was to throw my a negative is that when i got the bill we were charged 5 bottle of water ($60)- i can understand i do need to pay for it, however after the 1st bottle, the establishment should ask if we would like another bottle , instead they keep pouring without us acknowledging we wanted more and that we had to pay for it.. and also some waiters were getting water from other buckets from other tables, so i dont know if we drank 5 bottles for the night and assuming that waiters were taking water from other tables that the water was for free.. that was my only (small) complaint for the night, overall the food and ambience was great and made us feel really nice and special
I have dined at Aria for a few times now, and the food always tasted amazing (except the duck I just had last night, a bit chewy and under cooked). The staff are always very friendly, respectful and helpful. I certainly would recommend anyone who enjoys good food, great ambiance with friendly staff to give this place a go.
We had the Degustation with matching wines which was lovely.
The service is what really impressed us, attentive but not intrusive. Staff were familiar with the dishes and the somimeliers were knowledgeable about the wines they were serving and why they complimented the food.
Overall a lovely night out.
Went there with my fiancé last night. First impression was not so good as the host was not at the desk to greet us. We had to wait for 3 minutes to get attention and to be seated. The table service was good overall but there was not any interaction initated by the server. The bread arrived cold which shouldn’t be at a fine dining restaurant. The highlight of the night was the lamb loin and the champagne lobster! They were spectacular!
Way over priced for what is offered. View from the side room not that great. Two wine choices on menu not available. Waiter was extremely friendly but spent inordinate time chatting at each table so had to wait to get refills. Great location and nice ambiance but not good value for money
Questo elegantissimo e raffinatissimo ristorante, affacciato nientepopodimeno che sulla Opera House e sull'Harbour Bridge, ha il famoso Matt Moran come cuoco e propone dei piatti di qualità eccezionale. Abbiamo mangiato il filetto di Angus più tenero e buono del mondo. Le portate costano 55 AUD ciascuna e anche il resto è piuttosto caro, ma ne vale assolutamente la pena!
A bit of a spur of the moment booking, but my wife thought I was genius . Wonderful atmosphere, fine food and a wine list that would bee hard to beat in Ashby major city in the world. Service was friendly yet always professional. In all a delightful experience.
A problem with the prethearte dinner.We arrived at 5:30 as requested the service was slow,when we asked to order a dessert we were told directly that we had to vacate the table for the next sitting so there was no time!.Why then do they have a choice to have 3 courses when due to their slow service you only have time for two.This was a problem as one of our guests preferred to have a dessert and forgo the entree.Not what I expected.
Good food, great venue but:
1) the air conditioning was not set properly and it take too long to adjust it (after asking three times!).
2) The time it takes to serve the main course after the starters was unacceptable long for a a restaurant of this calibre.
La comida rica pero nada espectacular. Los precios no van con la sofisticación de los platos. Me pareció un lugar elegante en un spot muy turístico, que ostenta más que lo que sirve.
No nos avisaron que nos cobrarían el 10% del total por ser 1 de enero.
No tuvieron la botella de vino que quería. Pero nos regalaron el postre.
