Devine is one of the city’s most established wine bars, on the corner of Market Street and Clarence Street, in the heart of Sydney CBD and a short stroll to the QVB, State Theatre and Town Hall.
Devine is the spot to find tapas, Italian-inspired a la carte and an excellent wine by the glass selection. Long known for it’s popular lunches and after work eats, you’ll see the hustle and bustle of the city coming in to wind down; sinking into the banquettes or sitting up at the bar with some share plates.
Freshly shucked Sydney Rock Oysters, zucchini flowers and artisan salumi boards might be the best way to start.
Then any of the daily house made pastas, market fresh fish of the day, or the Wagyu Steak are a must!

Choose from over 400 wines on the Award winning wine list at Devine - with 40 available by the glass! European grape varieties and natural wine producers aplenty.

At just a stone’s throw from Darling Harbour, Devine is a must for corporate meals, social & family celebrations

Desserts were excellent recommendations of panacotta and semifredo. Overall, an excellent meal with fantastic service.

                                                I like this place and have been a few times, the only disappointment this time was the undercooked fish served to my wife.

                                                A very disappointing experience. The waitress was only there for 3 days and therefore didn't know exactly what the food was which was understandable. What wasn't acceptable is the fact that the chef apparently forgot to cook out mains, after us being their for about 1 ½ hours. We decided that we would leave, but the waitress went to see the manager (I think he might have been the owner), and then returned to advise that they would offer us complimentary desserts. Given we had already spent 1 ½ hours there, getting through a main and desserts was very unlikely to happen, therefore we suggested that they replace that with a complimentary bottle of wine given the wine we had order to have with the main had been drunk due to the extended wait. While this appeared quite a logical solution, the manager advised the waitress that they wouldn't be offering this, therefore we decided to leave. All the time, the manager decided that it was better to be cowardly and hide behind a poor waitress that only be there for 3 days rather than coming to try and sort this out directly. And, I might add, it was the owner that was very quick to take our order for the wine in the first place. Upon leaving, one of my guests found the manager, who again, simply pushed back and didn't want to have anything to do with it. My guest advised that we would be writing a less than favourable review due to his arrogant behaviour, hence what you have just read.

                                                Hi Mark, Yes, we missed your docket which explains the delay in sending out your food. This was an error which we apologised. As for the rest of the review, the manager was the person you spoke to -unfortunately both owners were struck down with Covid and the business was under significant strain as a result. An attempt to resolve your concerns were met with aggression, assertion and no compassion. Demanding free bottles of wine etc will never get a resolution which is amicable to both parties.

                                                While the food is amazing, the location is perfect and the atmosphere was great, the service was rather average. I love this restaurant and it is often my go-to for great wine and fantastic food. I was disappointed that the service was average. Hoping it was simply average on the day.

                                                The menu was excellent, the food was beautifully prepared and presented, the portions were generous and the staff were delightful and gave great service . This I was all backed up by a great wine list too and the pricing is reasonable- especially considering the quality of the overall experience. This is a must do for all Sydney-siders and visitors.
