It was excellent, there were many great options to feast from which would fill you up quickly, better alternative than most of the Michelin starred foodie places out there.

Have been going to the restaurant for some time now. This was the first time to experience "bad quality" ordered the 700g Rump as medium (ordered many times before and was a favourite) however was hard to cut and unpleasant to eat we had to send it back. Also ordered Rump cap but were not the usual quality even as medium rare. Not sure if this was a bad batch or the supply quality has changed!

I brought my New Zealand friends to dine at the Restaurant as I want them to experienced one of the well known Grill Restaurant in Sydney. We came across the Service has dropped, we wasn’t pleased with the Waitress that took the order for us. We have asked her 3x times for a complimentary bread during the ordering in between waiting for the meal as I want my friends to try. This is the first time they come to Sydney. Waited and waited, no bread got delivered. I asked a another waitress and she delivered to us straight away. The food is great, environment is super but only the service is a bit poor.
I lived in Sydney, I don’t mind but for someone from overseas, is not a pleasant experience. Thank you.

Kind regards,

Jennifer

I booked a table for me and my wife for our 30th birthday, although it was late notice they accepted the booking.
When I booked online there was an option to make any requests, I simply requested a scenic view on the balcony for the occasion mainly for photos etc.
When we arrived we were put inside, I was clearly annoyed, the waiter seemed to notice after me and my partner were making a slight scene,
tops to the waiter for noticing although he put us on a table in the corner with no view and I’m to tall and kept hitting the corner wall with my arm, very uncomfortable... after me and my wife talked it out for a bit about the sh*t situation I just got lazy to even bother asking to move again.
Apart from all that the food was actually pretty damn good, ribs are defiently a good option.
Manager seems to be a bit to hard on the staff in public they seem to try hard in a very busy workplace. Shoutout to them!

We have a table for 10 and expected excellent service & food - especially with your $$$+ rating.
We received zero service unless we tripped up the waitress (who was busy).
The time from arrival to food delivery equalled a table for 4 next to us that served THREE groups ahead of us.
My salmon salad was ORDINARY (I do a better job at home)
Your signature ribs tasted PRE-COOKED and warmed up.

Even though we booked a table we still had to wait about 15mins for it to be ready. The staff were lovely and the food was excellent. I personally wouldn’t go back only because we couldn’t have a conversation as it was way to loud. It was not the relaxing family dinner we had hoped for.

Group of 8 of us had pork ribs, beef cheeks and pork knuckle on a busy bustling night. Meals were fair but the pork knuckle a bit dry. Service was under pressure due to the heavy demand but was good despite that.

I was a fan of Hurricanes. What has happened???. Definitely something has changed. I noticed subtle changes to the restaurant and to the menu, which can be normal as they improve their environment for dining. But, our table of regular 5 people all agreed, the meat was poor for the first time - tough beef ribs, the lamb too chewy, the salads different and not to the usual standard; the pork ribs not too bad but not fantastic as per usual. Definitely feels like a change of management. We sent some of our ribs back to the kitchen because they were cold. They were also really fatty. They were happy to help out, the ribs came back hot but still very fatty and poor quality. I have friends who have became fans of hurricane's because I introduced them, I quickly contacted them to say, it's different, not what it was. A sad moment as we may not go back...

We ordered x2 steak and rib combos and a half chicken. The ribs and chicken were very tasty. The steak? A lot to be desired. Both steaks were tough and to be honest tasted like cheap steak - like braising/stewing steak. We did say something to our waiter who was lovely but nothing was done about.

Service quality has gone down, waiter wasn't informative when ordering food. When ordering food didn't mentioned about related side dishes and sauces, not friendly felt cold during conversation. Good quality also went done a bit, too many branches became to commercialised I guess.

Great for families wanting to eat substantial food for a special occasion.
My suggestion is book early and try to figure out what your eating before heading to the restaurant so you know exactly what your ordering as it can be overwhelming when you first see the menu. Both the beef and pork ribs were very tasty!!!

Waited ages for spoons napkins etc
Might of been a busy night but still wouldn’t go back to the darling harbour one
Really disappointed with the service it was supposed to be a special accession and unfortunately due to how extremely busy it was we where unable to receive the service we should of. Of course not the staffs fault as they where ran off their feet. But at the end of the day the food was lovely so definitely be heading back just not to a large venue like darling harbour 👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿

It was ok. Have had better ribs. Just didn’t have a zing to them. The lamb cutlets were fatty, chewy and covered in similar sauce to the ribs which doesn’t suit them. Wasn’t the worst meal but wasn’t the best either.

Reservation was made online for 630pm but we had to wait till 7pm to be seated. The reception person was in a bad mood with a very black face. Completely poor customer service. When my name was called, I was asked to wait inside the restaurant. I do not what is the difference between waiting outside or inside the restaurant. Anyway, poor customer service and the place was so noisy that the waiter was not able to hear us and we were not able to hear him.

Rib quality has fallen, i have been going to hurricanes for 25 yrs, i have a pretty good handle on the taste of the ribs, which i have said in the past are the best in sydney.

Sadly i cannot longer sat that.
The ribs were burnt not just charred but enough to do carbon dating on them.
