The menu has been reduced massively and we could not order any of the items that we came for. We were told this was due to Covid, which we understand. However we didn't want to pay for food we had to settle for and not why we chose the venue to begin with. Very disappointing, we will wait until things return to normal before we go again.

Our waitress was lovely though and we felt sorry for her as she was getting smashed. Big area to serve for one person!

Felt like More a cheap diner than how special it used to be. But yet the price tag matched the high glass venue it used to be. The special drinks for kids in the hurricane glass was no longer available and no white table cloths or proper menus, and the room was void of the glitz and glamour I remember. There are still tables in the more traditional setup in the entrance but you weren’t allowed to sit there. Sadly we will have to start a new tradition elsewhere for our kids. We made the most of it and our waiter made up some spiders for the kids to try to make up for our disappointment.

It took 20mins for a server to take our order. When we asked a server walking past if we could order they replied “no, I’m not your server, your server is someone else.” It took almost an hour from being seated to getting our food.

Only 1 desert option due to COVID which we understood. For $168.25 we expected better. I wonder when Head Office last checked this franchise. Go somewhere else!

Food was ok but terribly overpriced and the venue offered no atmosphere. The dining area that has a view over Darling Harbour was not open, which would have been the only real positive to this place.

Not sure if they are being hit really hard in the recovery from Covid given their restaurant is in Darling Harbour, a tourist mecca still trying to recover visitor numbers, but the food and drinks were not to their normal standard. Not sure I'll be back anytime soon.

While the shared platters are pricey, they’re pretty large, so worth it. Beware, the desert menu is limited to one item! My only grouse was the many TV screens around played a repetitive HRC advert. Given the great rock music variety, I would loved to have seen music videos streaming on. Hopefully live bands are back in April so we can rock on!

Once we were seated, our waiting came and introduced themselves. We ordered some drinks to start. One of the glasses we were provided with had lipstick all over it. We pointed out this to our waiter. They simply shrugged and said they would get a new one without any sort of apology. After this, they treated us differently. Quite often we had to get there attention to order more drinks, and they showed no enthusiasm after this. This did not meet standards at any time, let alone during Covid. The meals came out promptly and were of high standard. The music was great, and suited the time of day.
