We were told that you could stay till one am and food and drinks would be served late but they stopped serving food at 10 and that’s disappointing for New Year’s Eve
I made a reservation at 7:30pm but still had to wait for another 20 mins to be served. Ribs was cold that made me wonder if that's normal in Australia. Definitely not recommend if you are looking for a peaceful place.
Very pricey for the service you receive. I’ve never heard of a surcharge for dining on a Sunday which we had on our bill, wasn’t even a public holiday. Unfortunately our meat platters just tasted like everything had bbq sauce overpowering it.
I was advised by the front of house staff person that there would be a 1 hour 45 minute wait despite booking a table online. Fortunately another staff member found me a table immediately.
My waitress was excellent and attentive but the food was below average, my steak wasn’t tender and my chips tasted like the oil needed refreshing. Overall disappointing I probably won’t bother going back.
We were given complimentary glasses of sparkling wine for our honeymoon which was a really nice gesture!
Hi Jesper, congratulations on your wedding! Glad you enjoyed. :)
We were a group of 6 and we came to Hurricane's Circular Quay to celebrate the last working day of the year, so the restaurant was quite busy. Our food came out quite quickly and portions were amazing, we were so stuffed! Most of us ordered the ribs which were always so good. Cocktails were delicious too. Our waiter was also very attentive despite it being really busy. Would definitely recommend.
This was a team Christmas lunch so there were 7 people dining. The general consensus from the group is that is was a great experience. In particular the pork ribs were fantastic. As the dishes are quite large a number were ordered to share and no-one went away hungry. Service was friendly and the beers flowed.
Hi Toni, thank you for taking the time to leave us this great review. We are glad you enjoyed our pork ribs. We are looking forward to seeing you again soon :)
great lunch deal and worth the money. Everything else is a a bit of a rip off.
Yummy food and great location. It was a great way to spend our wedding anniversary
Lunch special was a great option, though the Ribs weren't as good as usual.
Hi Rage, thank you for taking the time to review us. :)
Usually the food is amazing but this time the beef ribs were so over cooked. They were dry and a bit burnt and honestly it gave me a lot of heart burn. I come here a lot so I was very disappointed by the food that night.
Dear Nila, thank you for bringing the ribs issue to our attention. We’re sorry you had a bad experience this time. As we are always looking for ways to improve guest experience, we have addressed the issue to the venue Manager.
Service was terrible - we were seated for over 10 minutes and no-one came near us, the table next to us was seated and their order was taken immediately. I had to stand up and go over to the waitress to ask for service.

Best barbecue ribs in Australia.. delicious and yummy..
Dear Maria, thank you taking the time to leave us this amazing feedback. Glad you enjoyed our ribs! We hope to see you again soon.
Service was very bad. Staff were too slow and not proactive enough,
I ordered one beer when I walked in and they forgot about it and I had to remind the staff after 15minutes.
The second time I ordered a glass of red wine with my meal and they forgot to input it into the system.
I had to wait 20 more minutes before I got my drink.
A customer choses to come to Hurricanes because of the food and is considered an above average restaurant, the service levels should reflect the same as what their proposition.
Dear @BKKK, thank you for taking the time to leave us this review. We really appreciate your feedback about the service, we have addressed the issue to the venue Manager. We hope in the future you will reconsider come dine at one of our restaurants.
No recognition that it was my husbands birthday even though I wrote it in the reservation and confirmed it over the phone. Ambiance is non existent, felt like I was in a takeaway restaurant. Food was ok, boring plain presentation.
Great service and the ribs... Oh my lord, they were delicious.
That's great to hear, Orion. Thank you for leaving us such a wonderful review, our staff will definitely be happy to read what you wrote :)
I have been going to Hurricanes Grill since the day they opened their doors in Bondi over 20 years ago and this last meal I had at Hurricanes Circular Quay was by far the worst meal I have ever had at Hurricanes
My associate and I both ordered the Rib-eye on the bone. Both were dry and tasteless. If we had more time we would have sent them back for sure. We did tell the waitress though and I wrote to Hurricanes after my disappointing meal but they did not bother to reply
I often go to this Hurricanes as it is close to my office and I can tell you that it is slowly deteriorating. Last time I was there was about 4 weeks ago with a number of business associates and everyone agreed it was no longer a great place to get a steak.
Exceptionally poor service. Rude wait staff that seemed to busy to care about any level of service. Plates cleared before meals were finished. Very disappointing.
Dear Doug, we apologized for any inconvenience we may have caused you, and we appreciate you taking the time to send us this feedback. We have addressed the issue to the venue Manager, and we hope in the future you will reconsider come dine at one of our restaurants.
Good food, good service!
Thank you for dining at Hurricane's Grill Circular Quay :)
I've eaten at Hurricane's Circular Quay previously and was a little underwhelmed. My recent experience was very different, staff were friendly with good service and accommodating. The location is fabulous right at the harbour. In my view the food has improved - the best ribs I've had for a while and that includes other Hurricane restaurants. We enjoyed the garlic bread and cheesy garlic bread, calamari then pork ribs. I will definitely be returning!
That’s great to hear, @Vicstar. Thank you for taking the time to review us. :)
The staff were very poor I had to ask for cutlery for both courses, I also had to remind them to bring our drinks. I asked for garlic aioli for my chips, they brought aoili and a garlic sauce then proceeded to charge $2.50 for the aoili and $3.50 for the garlic sauce of which I did not request. The manager was quite reluctant to take the charge for the garlic sauce off.
I will not be returning to this restaurant.

Excellent experience. The ribs were fantastic.
Dear MandJ, thanks for your kind words and we look forward to seeing you again.
Very poor service. I was a table for seven, we sat and then were ignored for 25 minutes. We were not even offered water. Seemed like our table had the plague. The server seemed put off that I bothered to ask for water for the table and service.
Hi Jeffery, thank you for taking the time to bring this to our attention. We are sorry that your experience at Hurricane's Grill Circular Quay didn’t match your expectations. We hope in the future you will reconsider come dine at one of our restaurants.
Staff were great. Friendly and accomodating and very patient with us (because it took too long for us to order, coz we were chatting away hahah)
It's great that there is an option to split the bill, it makes it easier for the customers.
Dear, MarisE. Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to leave us this amazing review. We look forward to seeing you again. :)
Great place to be and dine with your friends and family
Dear Roldan, thank you for taking the time to leave us this great review. We hope to see you and your family again. :)
Food was great and the waitress was very courteous and accommodating.
Dear Michael, thank you for taking the time to review us. :)
The server didn't know the menu, and we spent 15 minutes arguing about the two platers we wanted. I'd been there once before and knew more about the menu than she did.
It was a birthday celebration, and it really killed the mood having to explain over and over how the ribs plater and meat plater worked. (We wanted the rib plater for two and the meat plater for two. That was it.) Finally, I asked her to go and get someone else to take the order. She returned saying that she was wrong, and the order was completed in less than a minute!
The rest of the meal was fine, but the table was really too small for the platters. In the end there was too much food, and we took the rest home in a doggie bag.
All up, it was a little underwhelming, considering that the total for the four of us was $260. I don't think I'll be back.
The food was not good like used too. The jug of pims wasn’t good too. A bit disappointed especially I had guest from overseas that time.
Hi @Rnoferiawan, thank you for taking the time to bring this to our attention. We will use your feedback to make it better and we apologized for any inconvenience we may have caused you.
Would not recommend Circular Quay hurricane to any of my mates or family, service was poor, asked for surviet never received anything, drinks took awhile when we order before a table next to us. Had to wave a few time to get the attention of the staff. At the end of the night we had left over, the ribs was wrapped in aluminium foil instead of placing it in a container lol. Thanks for awesome experience
Ribs were burnt and felt like we were being shuffled in with rest of tourists. Bondi much better.
Dear Chris, thank you for your review. I’m sorry to hear you had a frustrating experience, but we really appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention. We have addressed the issue to the venue Manager.
Food was amazing as always. Very friendly staff and it wasn’t too noisy to the point when you can’t hear the person from across from you talking but a comfortable busy restaurant type noisy.
Hi James, thank you for dining at Hurricane's Grill Circular Quay. We hope to see you soon :)
Pork’s meat became lesser than before as well as chips.

Food was really delicious, atmosphere was great, service was ok could have been a little friendlier but didn't take away from the experience.

Overall was excellent but just one criticism. When we are paying, we got the wrong receipt which was double the amount we ate, good thing we checked before we pay.

Great meat. Went there for the ribs. A half rack was enough!!
