The Food was good, however, we ordered before the table next to us, who had more people, and we received our order later than them, and about 25-30 mins after we placed our order.

Very disappointed with the overall experience. Extremely upset of the length of time it took for our food to reach the table. 2 tables with the same number of heads located nearby were seated 15-20 minutes after our table and they had their meals (main meals) 15 minutes before our table. It took 1 hour and 10 mins for our meals to reach our table. In addition to this, the food wasn’t hot. It was warm. The staff said sorry one occasion only and had no expectation as to why the meals took so long. I paid $200 for 2 people. It’s a disgrace and will not be returning.

The food took way too long, approximately 40minutes for 6 meals.
Other than that it was okay

The service was of great quality and the food was delicious. We ordered the share plate of pork ribs and BBQ chicken and sweet potato fries and cheesy garlic roll I rate it 10/10. I ordered a moscato and it was amazing.

Great scotch fillet, done to perfection.
Very happy with service.
I would suggest they check their social distancing practices, it seemed a bit lax.

Food is standard for Hurricane. The service was pritty quick because they wanted us to leave so quickly. Understandably we were the last booking but we JUST finished our meal and the staff was sitting directly opposite us and staring made us feel so uncomfortable that we just up and left.

We love Hurricanes, the food is always great. It’s a bit pricey though. Also did not know it was a franchise, the wine selection in Bondi is better than in Darling Harbour. But still a great adventure for a kids birthday.

I told the staff that it was my mother’s 50th birthday and all the other tables received a birthday surprise except my Mum. They also gave me 2 empty salt shakers when I asked for salt.

Very impressed with the food and service . Ribs were extremely soft and full of flavour. Cocktails were a little over priced especially as they continued a lot of ice .

Food was great, staff were great. However it would be 5 stars but our table was right by the entrance and the payment desk. Which meant a constant load of customers stood over our table waiting and standing around.
With social distancing this isn't acceptable, and they shouldn't have that table there. I don't mind people walking past a table, but we had a scenario of 10 people stood right next to us waiting to pay, with wait staff squeezing past, and new customers coming through.
I requested a new table and the staff were great to move us, so full marks for them.
But the restaurant shouldnt create this scenario. It's fairly irresponsible in this current situation

Best ribs in Sydney but a bit pricey. They have good sized kids options at reasonable prices which is great.

Very distinct and flavoursome dinner. I had the 350d Scotch Fillet and it was absolutely perfect. My wife had the half-rack of BBQ ribs and she also was very satisfied with the quality and flavour.

It took 20 mins to get the attention of a waitress to take our order for drinks.
Starters were beautiful. The steak was horrendous. Very fatty - even the waiter that took our plates commented that it was a bad piece of steak.
Chef and manager both thought it was ‘ok’ and nothing further was done.
$250 bill, went home hungry and very disappointed. Not good enough, especially as it was a Tuesday evening.

Food was not to the level and standard of the price charged for. Service was brilliant but I came to eat and food was not a top notch. I had a medium scotch fillet and for the restaurant with such high calibre and recognition it is was disappointing meal. I don’t even want to mention the chicken breast my partner had...
Never coming to eat again. Sorry

It was very busy and took a while to be taken to our table even though we booked, no social distancing and tables were very close. Food was good, but nothing to rave about, needed more variety on the plate for the price you pay.

When ordering we were informed that there was no chicken breast. Half our table wanted that. I asked if they would subprime chicken wings for the breast and was told no. After ordering steak and ribs bit steaks come out rare. Bother we’re asked for mer to rare but they were blue.
Lighting was very poor.

Hadn’t been here in at least 8 years and it definitely was not as good as I remember it. Service was ok, not amazing just ok.
Food was ok, I had the beef ribs and they were a little tasteless. The fries weren’t good at all, Mushroom sauce was the only thing that saved them... but otherwise tasted like cardboard. The kids serving sizes were decent. I won’t be rushing back but at least we were all full.
