What a fantastic dinner.....had the tasting menu which is great value and delicious as! Can't fault anything. staff were attentive but not intrusive.
Great food and extremely well priced - best value around. You’ll be stuffed. Rose vermouth was beautiful- dabbed a bit behind the ears, it was that fragrant 😉
We chose Banksii because of the menu particularly the vegetarian options. Our expectations in that respect were exceeded. The service was excellent too.
Over hyped. Food was disappointing for the price paid
The chicken liver pâté entree was very tasty and a meal all on its own. Unfortunately the crab lasagne was burnt so that spoiled the experience. The service was effficient however not very attentive or friendly - the person who served us looked more interested in the people walking past than listening to our orders. Taking the carafe of wine away every time after pouring, and then pouring the wine without asking whether we wanted to have more, is just not good service and wasteful.
Accommodated a pram / baby with no issues. Lovely food and attentive waiter
Fabulous fabulous restaurant with incredible food. I love it...
We had the set menu for 6 people. While we did enjoy the food, it was sent out way too quickly and found ourselves having to eat fast to keep up. We warned the restaurant ahead of time about a crustacean allergy ahead of time and it was great they acknowledged it, but they replaced the prawn option for 2 pieces of carrots?! We expected something of equal value and the person she was sharing with unfortunately missed out on the prawn option even though she isn't allergic. Overall, just didn't get out what we were expecting but it is still a beautiful restaurant.
Extraordinary dining experience!! Joyful service and food prepared with great care and flair - goosebumps experience. Bravo!
Sadly starting to feel a little rundown after what had been an amazing first visit. Senior staff regularly had to step in to address wait staff challenges. May try again but not for a special occasion.
Really good flavours from the varied menu. Excellent service from Tommy. Lovely attention to detail for a friends birthday.
Great food, great location, great service. The menu offers something a bit different and can be shared. Enjoyed the vermouth too. Would like to try the Share Menu so will be back....
Not perfect because there is always room for improvement
Great food, great atmosphere, great staff, great company! Who could ask for more!
The food is good and the service is always attentive and friendly.
Pleasantly surprised. Everything was great.
Staff very attentive and courteous. Loved it
I recently celebrated my birthday with a long lunch. Food was fantastic and service was outstanding. Very attentive and friendly.
It was a lovely atmosphere. The food was nice. We have a vegan in the family and would be nice to see more options.
Wines great. Pate, prawns, duck very nice. Fish with sea succulents excellent idea but too salty. White choc scroll dessert was hard, perhaps straight out of fridge and/or stale. Staff lovely.
Wish the restaurant wasn’t on the walkway which brings a ‘food court’ feel.
The whole night was amazing. I took my partner and his family for his birthday dinner and we were served by Mikey. He was very friendly and accommodating. We had the share menu and they even accommodated my vegan diet without messing up everyone else’s dinner. Mikey knew a lot of about the different vermouth and picked a different option for each of us. Thanks for the fantastic night and vermouth!
Creative food which tastes amazing, great service and excellent atmosphere. Also a very extensive wine list.
We had lunch many times at your place and we always though so haughty of the offering
But the set menus for dinner was a big disappoint;
Bread was cold
The set selection of the menu was not balanced and wasn’t any special and am sorry to say that it was untasty
I enjoyed the occasion and the food was good, however I was surprised at the price at the end of the meal. A little overpriced for what you get & what you can get elsewhere in Sydney.
Great food, great service! Would recommend to anyone looking for a great night out.
Great food and awesome selection of Vermouth. Our favorite was the Octopus! Could have ordered 3 servings of the Octopus!
Service was amazing..!! Food very well thought out and loved the theme!!
Had a really good evening. The staff were friendly and looked after us really well. The food was great and the cocktails fab. Will definitely go back again soon.
Banksii is a standout restaurant in the new Barangaroo complex, which is a beautiful harbour front dining area for an intimate meal or, as was the occasion for us, a group business meal. With a guest list that included international visitors and vegetarian diners, Banksii offers a dedicated vegetarian menu and great choices for the carnivores amongst us as well. All this in a water front setting that showcases the best of what makes Sydney such a great city.
Attentive and engaging staff for whom nothing was a problem made this a great night and saw me receive many compliments for my choice of restaurant. Despite being winter, we were warm even at the outdoor tables.
Great service! It was a birthday lunch and the little gift (box with petit four) from the Banksii team was a lovey surprise. Would definitely be back.
We had a couple with us visiting from Italy (on their honeymoon) and we all had a really good time - really enjoyed the food and we would recommend Banksii to friends and look forward to coming back
Great options for vegetarians, the staff reaply took good care of us and made the birthday girl feel special.
It was a chilly night so that kinda spoiled the idea of sitting outside enjoying the view by the wharf. Otherwise, good service, good food (but pricey for small servings) to share. Will come back for a nice lunch in the sun.
Beautiful evening made special by the team here - with a hand written card and sweet treats as an anniversary gift for us. Wonderful touch and much appreciated :-) Delicious food with ample portion sizes for sharing a few dishes. Great location and setting.
We had a lovely night at Banksii. Delicious food and a really nice spot, plus a great bonus of interesting Vermouth drinks to try. Just beware, there isn't much in the way of vegetables available. However, the meat dishes were really lovely.
Your team was amazing. great service, food, attentive without being overbearing.
I also appreciate the large selection of vegetarian dishes.
Wine list was also spot on. Great selection. I was also very pleasantly surprised with curly flat on the menu, my favorite winery.
My new favourite restaurant!
Everything was rather good except the time limit of 2 hours, it wasn't sufficient time to complete the tasting menu and felt rushed out as we were finishing our meal. It didn't help that we didn't get a heads up when the time was drawing near and I ordered a drink that was delivered as we were told to finish up and leave. In my mind we should have received a heads up 10 min beforehand and I should have got a reminder when I ordered my drink that I had to walk away from. Other that that it was good, noise levels were also excellent which I find rare these days.
The food was amazing, Tony is an exceptional waiter and had great recommendations and knowledge of the vermouths on offer. Would go back again!
Had the set menu for two, food was great and portion sizes were generous. Fantastic service provided by our waiter Tony who helped us navigate the impressive vermouth menu. Also received a nice little gift of chocolates to celebrate our special occasion. Good location as well.
Only disappointment ordered oysters and the was told there were only two left, others wise enjoyable experience
Food is good although a bit inconsistent. Last time we want, every morsel was stunning. This time, pork was a little overcooked and dry, and the crab lasagne just not as tasty as it was the first time. Maybe different chef running the show that night?
