Always love dining at Gowings, food is great, staff are fantastic
Quality of the food was good, drinks and bar were awesome. Staff a little slow at times, plenty of them but seem to be a little disorganised. Slightly pricey which we knew but didn't feel it was value for money.
Great food selection loved the comfortable seating staff all friendly and very efficient.
Never a bad experience here. Wonderful food, drinks and staff.
The menu was quite varied, the food chosen was of high quality, the wine list was extensive and the service was intimate but not overdone. A very enjoyable experience.
The restaurant had a lovely look to it and the seating was comfortable. The wait staff were attentive without pestering. It is pricey so wouldn't be a regular Friday night dinner but nice for a special occasion. The food was delicious, especially the Tuna.
The food was wonderful , the ambiance was wonderful , the waiter was wonderful, but the waitress’s eyes were all on the top of their head and ignored my waving hand in air to ask service. That’s disappointed. That’s a losing point!
A special occasion complemented by thoroughly enjoyable food selection, preparation and delivery to table. The flounder was astonishingly good and the French influence in the chaffing quite apparent. Dessert was a memorable course - approached with tacit decisions, taken with delight. In all a special place two eat. Noise levels at times very high - bar music in restaurant area not such a good idea. But it did not ruin the occasion. Will dine again at Gowings.
Very disappointed in the steak we ordered. For $48 and apparently the best steak on the menu it was tough, chewy and not even warm. Extremely disappointed
My dining experience was not the best, as it was a dinner before a Show, so time was a limit, and Gowings were busy but that should not be an excuse, they are used to that. We waited 15mins before a glass of wine arrived, and our food arrived before the wine, which I was not happy about. After our main, we ordered coffee and a dessert which we waited for again!
I will dine at Gowings again, only to see if it will be a better night.
Great go to in the city. Great food, excellent vibe and service.
FOOD QUALITY EXCELLENT
SERVICE OVERDONE AND CARELESS
NOISE FROM BAR AREA A PROBLEM
DIFFICULT TO FIND FROM STREET LEVEL
STAFF AT STREET LEVEL OBVIOUSLY CATER FOR OTHER PATRONS
There are lots of restaurants but when you come across one that has exceptional table service and the food is 5 star, you know you're in for an amazing food experience.
Awesome food, greay service, ambient was a bit too loud.
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal last night. We all loved our meals and our waiter (a young Swiss fellow) was exceptional, along with the wine waiter who was also excellent. The only down points were the Cheesecake which one of us ordered - it seemed to be frozen which made it hard as a rock and tasteless which was a real surprise after the excellent mains. We were also charged for an expensive bottle of Prosecco which we hadn't ordered. Just as well I checked the bill.
Previous visits had been very impressive and was looing forward to duck . My client does not eat seafood which dominates the menu.
Limited non seafood entree so settled on a salad and bread, We had lamb rack and pork belly.. both small portions a dn lots of fat on lamb, then had to order additional vegs .. cheese platter for 3 or 5 is ridiculous when normally 2 or 4 diners are present.
Waitress was excellent however the food was overpriced and unimpressive.. ould have done better at home for fraction of the price..
Sadly, yesterday's lunch was not at all special. I used to be a great fan; sending great reviews. However, yesterday, it all went wrong. (1) I had to walk into the restaurant to get attention at reception; (2) I had to hunt down someone to order the wine from (and she said she would get the Wine Waiter, but when he arrived, he asked me to point out the "Peirro LTC" on the wine list), ditto the food (long wait) and my pork belly was solely fat (although, in fairness, my guest's looked lovely).
I was my birthday night and there were 5 of us ,We ordered 5 steaks
4 of us got it wrong such as the one that supposed to be medium they gave us medium rare. No one satisfied with their steaks except me since I ordered Medium rare it was so embarrassing for me that my guests didn’t like their food and we spent $560 on food and beverages.
Also recommend to have more staffs on a busy day.
The sirloin in the steak and frites was tough.
Food was fresh and delicious...staff amazing, so helpful and courteous...not to mention very good looking!!!
Not as regular as I used to be due to being retired now but it was great to be back at Gowings Bar & Grill - was entertaining a good friend visiting Sydney and he was certainly impressed with the whole exercise - staff go out of their way to ensure an enjoyable occasion and the "buzz" of the venue adds to the experience - I will be back!
Great spot for brekkie in the city as you can book and food reasonably priced.
Service, food, timing, cocktails and ambience were all on point at Gowings. They went above and beyond to help us celebrate a special night and I am say I’ve never experienced such amazing service. The walk through the hotel lobby to get to this restaurant is an experience in itself. Perfect for a date or a night out with friends.
Celebrating daughters 18th. Food was exceptional and the staff were knowledgeable and attentive. AAA
Overall just an average experience.... doesn’t say much when the French fries were the best part of the meal...as the hangar steak was nothing special. Easily could have been an excellent experience as the location and ambiance were spot on. We
We didn't enjoy our meals. Overrated and underwhelming!
Great place and I love it every time. Bar is great too.
Very disappointed with service. Ordered 1 entree and 2 main course and they forgot entree (not even a large order to write down) too busy trying to sell sides and wines etc. Offered entree with main course when we pointed out mistake - the idea of an entree is before main meal.
Definitely the best meal we’ve had in a long time. Stunning restaurant, very wonderful service and seriously yummy food. Not cheap but you get what you pay for and it was a meal to celebrate my husbands birthday so happy to pay for quality. Highly recommend.
Had a great meal of pink snapper with slipper lobster,was probably the best fish we had tasted. We also had a bowl of sugar snap peas and puréed potato, delicious! Great presentation and wonderful service.
Wonderful service friendly staff
Thanks, a great night, staff were really friendly and efficient
Great venue but TOO LOUD!!
We loved it. Food great, staff friendly and helpful.
A tad noisy. And please only 3 lavatories for such a big bar & restaurant.
Food was good. Service was terrible and the food took over an hour. By the time the food got to us, we had less than half an hour to enjoy it before our booking was up. Very limited options for food. If seafood and steak aren’t your thing, don’t dine here.
Went here on recommendation for a date night, service was attentive and atmosphere was nice. Food wasn't mind-blowing though. Steak was nice, although triple cooked chips were soggy. Porchetta was a little on the dry side and crackling was on the chewy side.
Very disappointing. Food terrible. Almost inedible.
Always a good experience ! A combination of good people and good food ! Doesn’t get any better than this !
Food was mostly excellent but our meat was very over cooked. Other than that it was excellent.
Service and attention to guests was lacking as they all stood behind he stations lookin down. Took a while for staff to notice guests need their assistance.
