We had made a reservation beforehand and we had requested to have a seat with a view. When we reached the restaurant, it was super crowded, partly due to the Vivid Sydney event. We had thought we would just be given a table for two as long as it was available since we had made a reservation. To our surprise, they still catered to our request for a table with a view and it didn't take us very long to have our table. Really glad.

I am from Singapore and last I went to your restaurant on 16th June. However I was quite disappointed with the full rack of Pork ribs which I Ordered. The meat was rather hard (overcooked) and it wasn't "Juicy" at all. The meant wasn't sweet and I felt that the sauce was lacking. I have always made it a point to visit the restaurant when I visit Sydney. The meat has always been Soft, tender and very sweet unfortunately this was one of the worst tasting Ribs I've tasted. The staff were all Great.

Waitress was lovely. My daughters food was good and my husbands. My meduim rare steak was raw and when i let the staff know.. they informed me i told them 'too late' and the only discount they offered was a free drink. Which i thought was pretty poor.

Ordered Mushroom Soup ($13), Full Rack Pork Ribs with Sweet Potato Fries (Main Course, $45), Mac & Cheese (Side Dish, $9.5)

Mushroom soup is good, but its still not worth the price for that quality.
Pork Ribs is exceptional! Really tender and it has a lot of meat (not only the bone is heavy).
Mac & Cheese is okay. Not really recommend it.

Would go back to try the burger coz it looks good!

To be perfectly honest, I went here for a meal with my wife based on my experience at the Gold Coast restaurant. The experience was poles apart. It was disappointing that I booked a seat two weeks prior and ended up with possibly the worst seat in the house (between the exit door and the service table). I would normally expect a bit of priority here, especially after travelling from Canberra for the meal.
Our staffer, Mel?, did try really hard and was the standout of the evening..

We were quite disappointed to be honest.
We asked for our childs meal to arrive with the entrees and it was the last meal to arrive at the table, even after the other mains.
There were no serving utensils with the shard plates and we had to ask for drinks to be replenished.

Staff were friendly, helpful and gave great service. The ribs were not as tender as I remembered from a few years ago but was still delicious.
The mocktail I had was also fantastic!

Food and atmosphere was good. But all our dishes when brought to the table had a strand of hair in it. I'm not too fussy about it but the missus was grossed out.

I've been to Hurricanes every time I've come to Sydney, and each time it has been a treat. The lamb ribs are perfect and the pork ribs are great too, although I find that much BBQ sauce a little cloying. It was a pleasant surprise this trip to experience the steak, which was really well cooked (Medium well). Excellent food and service each time!

予約をして行ったにもかかわらず、受付で名前を言ったが、30分ぐらい待たされた。予約は順番待ち程度と思ったほうが良いかも?アウトドアの眺めのいい席を用意してくれたが暗くてメニューが読めない。料理はサラダもポークリブも美味しく、総合的にはオススメの店だが日本人感覚で予約をすると、時間がなくなると思う。

The line to enter the restaurant was very long. Not a positive first impression considering majority of the people in line did not have a booking. I had reserved a table and was requested to wait in a squished area next to the bar with 20 other people waiting to be seated. We waited for 20 minutes after our reserved time before we were seated. Our table was next to the kitchen although I reserved a table by the window. Entree was served to us after our main arrived. Food and cocktails were good.

I really enjoyed the pork ribs and sweet potato chips, but service from the staff was not satisfactory. They grabbed out plates and cultery as soon as we picked the last piece of ribs without asking! We felt like they were trying to kick us out. I also booked a table for two around 3 weeks ago and asked for window seats but they didn't, so I asked the manager and he said as they busy and that's why we need to sit on the corner of the restaurant.

We were seated quickly, staff were attentive but did not hover. We all chose something different. When our meals arrived we were treated to huge portions of delicious food. We all left feeling content and not one of us had food envy! We will be back and look forward to a Hurricane opening in Melbourne soon!!

Food was great, and we got a table with a good view of Darling Harbour. It was a very thoughtful gesture of the restaurant to provide an activity paper and crayons for children to keep them occupied (definitely 2 thumbs up for this initiative!). However, the heater was slightly too hot on a night that wasn't too cold (we felt we were being roasted!), and it took a while for us to get the bill. Overall, we were extremely satisfied.

I had the mushroom burger which was one of the specials. Burger was delicious but the fries weren't salted or seasoned at all, so I spiced them up with a sauce.
Other than that, the menu looked really nice with a large selection of food. The only thing that I disliked was the large amount of noise and sitting near the kitchen probably didn't help - made it feel like a very hectic environment.

Other than that, great restaurant for an energetic vibe and catch-up with friends environment.

I was kept waiting for more than an hour even though I made a reservation.
When crowded, staff at the entrance, troublesome Japanese were postponed.
And lonely, as children sit on the floor, the leader prepared a chair.
Later, we were able to get to the table relatively quickly.
After that, even to me who is not good at English, we offered lots of service and delicious meals.
The staff of the floor also used care more carefully, and additional dishes were immediately handled, so it seemed like the education was well-ordered.
At first, if the correspondence of the two staffs at the entrance was good, the dinner at Sydney was the best, but waiting for an hour made me sorry.

The atmosphere and service are both commendable and, for a restaurant that targets the carnivores, they do a great job of ribs and steaks. The offerings for vegetarians aren't terribly inspiring, but that's to be expected.

had rib medley, terrible presentation. why give only small side salad with family serve of ribs, hate to see what smaller serve offers.
barmaid did not know what a scotch was or crown larger nor could we get any answer if they sold bottled water as the warm tap water was very ordinary
all in all, yes, you pay a lot of money for your location ( as 4 chicken wings $20. that size you would get 9 in a kilo and you would pay around $2.50 per kilo)
at the end of the day I'd be reluctant to go back.
