For the prices they charge the food was mediocre. I ordered sautéed mushrooms and they brought me a paste. The ambiance is non existing, on an office building and very plain, no table cloths or cloth napkins.

Starters Mains and Desserts were excellent.
Ribs and sweet potato fries are the best.

It was not what I expected as Hurricane's Grill in other chains. It's just available to make a booking later than other chains.

Very good meal again and great service. We were there 7.30pm to approximately 9.10pm 25/01/2020 The only negative that I picked up was the ringing of the bell obviously from the kitchen, I know that they have to ring the bell to let the wait staff know that meals are ready to be taken out but it was a persistent angry ring with mostly 4 very loads rings every time. As I say I know it has to be done but it was quiet a violent ding of the bell and mostly 4 times every time.

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 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.

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.

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.

Pity

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!

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.
