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.

We sat outside as it wthat was the only table available despite booking. The burger buns for my children's burgers were hard and they could barely eat them. My salad was bland. Overall fo the price it was a very average experience and I would prefer to book another steakhouse in future.

Food were great! But a little lack of service, we had to ask for water every time. To be fair the it was a busy night, our entree came very quickly and tok a little while for the mains.

All of the staff at Hurricanes made us feel welcomed, and gave us one of the best experiences we have ever had.
Being our first night out baby-free, for over 2 years, the staff went above and beyond to make sure it was a night we will never forget. We will definitely be back!

Wife ordered lamb loin chops and veges (at an extra cost) that she was happy with although for the cost she would rather have cooked herself at home. My son and I had Waygu hamburgers and chips that again for the price was nothing exceptional. The total cost for three meals and one desert plus a couple of drinks was $177.00, a bit expensive for what you get.
PS, The service was good.

Everything went smoothly but we got turned away in the end by the Manager. We told her that we are not having dessert and said that she needs the table. We only stayed for over an hour. Not a very pleasant experience especially that we were with visiting friends from overseas.

I went this restaurant on lunch with my partner on business. Good location.

The waiter doesn’t come to the table so much which takes long time to ask for something.

Taste is so so but price is expensive.
The quality may be high but the taste is strong which impacts on the original taste.

Staff were lovely and friendly. It wasn't busy when we first arrived so was nice and quiet to start with. Steak was over cooked and tough, not worth the money. Dessert was nice.

Had the full rack of pork ribs and was not disappointed. Massive fall off the bone ribs with a sweet bbq sauce. Food in general was very good. Service was spotty as we had to wait 15 minutes for a table despite making a reservation. After finishing our meals and prior to ordering desert, dirty dishes were left on the table and it took wayyyyyy to long for them to be cleared by staff.

My friends all for different varieties of steaks and said they were “meh” but my ribs were extremely good.

I say no because we were served our entree and main meal at the same time, extremly disappointed.
Within 38 minutes we had ordered, received our meal & eaten.

This was supposed to be a special event for us & it was all over before an hour was up.
The waitress was lovely, nice window table.
Good if you want to eat eat & run.

First of all, when we paid money for our bill, we only spent $52 for the meal. However, we cost $62 while we paid. As we have the habit to check the payment and receipt, we pointed out errors right now. Then we got $10 back. It was the bad first impression to us.

Food was fabulous as always. Service was a bit standard. Towards the end of meal, the waiter seemed keen to rush us out of the door as quick as possible and it's not even that busy.

Food as always was excellent, however our waiter asked us do you want sparkling water or still water we said just normal table water. Water came out it was in a clear bottle no label no cap so obviously we thought that was table water. Bill comes and there was about 5 items on our bill which were not ours plus they charged us $7 for still water. We spoke to management and they sorted everything out and didn’t charge for the water. All in all a great rib place probably my favourite in Sydney for pork ribs!!! It was a little worrying that all these extras were on our bill but management fixed the issue so all good, highly recommend.

I’m glad you asked about my experience, as no one asked us while dining and I wanted to complain on the night. No straw in my coke (had to ask for one) No steak knifes for meat-had to ask for some: waited a while then asked for them again-was told they didn’t have any clean so our meat went cold waiting for knives. No bowl for rib bones, no bib, no wipes and to top it off had a group 15 or so loud men (who were swearing and being obnoxious) sit next to my family which includes 3 children. Fortunately they were moved but only after we had heard way too much!!! Not a pleasant experience at all. Not worth $211

We have been to this hurricane’s grill for quite some time although we only get into the city occasionally. The quality has declined the price is the same. Paying $29 for chicken breast & then pay extra for salad is very dissatisfying You used to serve salad with all your meals. Ribs were not as good as before. Food came out cold. Understandably it was busy but that shouldn’t effect your quality of your food. We won’t be going back very disappointing.

Service is quite poor when they are busy. Ask for a drink and it can take 20 mins before it comes to your table. Waitress was friendly. Meal appearance is hurried and unattractive on the plate. Steak was overcooked but tender. Very slap-dash in food and service.
