Food presentation not up to expectation set by prices charged. My Salmon Three Ways lacked creative flair and all the salmon pieces basically tasted the same because the miso broth was added to the whole plate rather than just to one piece of salmon.

2 x gnocchi were dry and rubbery and Lamb Cutlet was not cooked as requested. Quail starter was nice but tough.

We did the $49 breakfast and the food and service were both terrible. The service was slow and the buffet food was horrible. There was no bacon or mushrooms and the tomatoes were sour. I think it’s a rip off

The location and ambiance is amazing however I was disappointed in the food. The trio of oysters was very average and my main fish tasted like it came from the local thai restaurant. Not what I was expecting. organic wine was great though. I would select the food differently next time.

My wife and I were celebrating a special moment in our life. The restaurant is very impressive in all areas , appearance , staff and of course the food.


Regrettably our table was two tables adjacent to the kitchen and the continual issuing of instructions by head chef was too intrusive to enjoy any chance to have a conversation at a reasonable level.

We do enjoy the restaurant very much however we would not be prepared to visit again without an assurance we were not allotted a table in a position out of hearing of the person shouting continually in the kitchen.
Cheers
Lorraine and Dennis Pople

Disappointing that espresso coffee is not included with the set price buffet and is additional and expensive charge. This made such a bad impression. Not many five star hotels do this anymore. It seems cheap.

Paid $51 for a piece of steak and one veg (broccoli)!!! The sashimi just that? ordinary. A rule of thumb is you shouldn't walk away from a good meal thinking about what it cost!! if you do the meal wasn't good enough. I was expecting this experience to be "world class" considering it has the name 'Hilton' and 'Luke Mangan' attached to it but it was disappointing for those reputations.
The same can be said for the 'afternoon tea' in the 'Executive Lounge'. I recommend you look at the Crown in Melbourne!

Came here for dinner after work for my daughters university graduation. We loved to ambiance and particularly the music. We felt like we were in A New York restaurant where we go often and where they get the music and ambiance just right. Food was mostly above average and service was great.
Thank you.

We had the degustation of which the kingfish, the salmon dish and the lamb were excellent and stood out. The other dishes did not inspire. Service was minimal and mostly barely audible. Atmosphere was ok but I was glad we requested a move from our allotted table in the window hit by the sun. Our Friday lunch time booking coincided with a few boozy business lunches. We were disappointed with the food and service overall, we were expecting more from the Hilton Sydney.

My husband and I really enjoyed the food. I'd never tasted such creative and tasty salad dressing as they served at Glass Brasseries. What made it so delicious?! Of course main dish (lamb shank and lamb rack) was superb. I have found that Sydney is one of the best spots for gourmet people. If I visit Sydney again, I eat at Glass Brasserie.

We had a get together of three couples on a mid-week evening. Most other rated restaurants were either too rigid on their booking times (6.00 or 8.00) or required fixed price, three course ordering.

That wasn't what we wanted and Glass provided the right balance of high quality food with a flexible ordering approach and at a time that suited us.

We got a table by the window with a view of the QVB and had a good range of starters (sashimi, oysters etc) and main courses (grilled fish, baked fish and lamb) with green vegetables as sides.

A full wine list with a good variety of price points in each wine type. We were chatty at the table but the acoustics of the restaurant handled it well. A good 8 or 9 out if 10 for the evening.

I booked by clicking on a "book now" link on Facebook for the Maggie Beer August Lunch Special. There did not appear to be any place dieing the online booking experience to specify that was the dining experience I was booking. I received confirmation at 8am via email and SMS - on a Sunday! Needless to say a silent email would have sufficed instead of a noisy SMS so early on a Sunday - really NOT impressed by that. My friend arrived before me and was settled in a lovely booth in the main part of the restaurant which was very pleasant. When I arrived we were given menus but there was no sign of the Maggie Beer dishes. When I asked the waiter for the correct menu he told me we would need to move to a different (not as nice) part of the restaurant. He then made us pick up our belongings and do the walk of shame to the back of the restaurant behind the lift area. The area was by no means full (Monday lunch time) and the other diners stopped eating to watch the show as they no doubt thought we were being evicted. I don't recall seeing anywhere on the promotion that the August special was restricted to C reserve seating. I'm still absolutely flabbergasted by this behaviour and will probably cancel my reservation for next Monday (which was booked before this fiasco occurred) as a result. I booked my table correctly and in good faith and was treated extremely poorly to the point of embarrassment. Not classy, Glass.
