A traditional steakhouse experience with a modern twist, Kingsleys Australian Steakhouse has all the sophistication of an established steakhouse yet its rustic charm gives it a funky edge on the rest.

    We were celebrating a birthday and wanted a special venue for the occasion. The food was brilliant, the service was excellent. Only problem is finding the restaurant as it is set back off the street. Perhaps a sign on the footpath would help.

    Most amazing steak I have ever had. Rack of lamb was great. We had 2 servers Sebastian and Teresa. They were so helpful without being intrusive. We ate there for my husband’s birthday and really enjoyed the whole evening. Thank you for a wonderful night.

    We were running a bit late as we’re off to phantom of the opera - the meals served were and is possibly one of the best cooked steaks I have ever had - to have a 12 yo who normally won’t let me cook medium she even loved it - I recommend this restaurant - Nick out host for the night even gave us some of the no rain luck that he said he had got as it didn’t start raining till shows end . In a past life use to be a regular makes me remember why .

    One waitress and manager on service, repeated each other’s jobs. Ordered drinks from one, then the other would come and ask what drinks we wanted. Waitress knew absolutely nothing about the menu, kept us waiting to be seated for 5 minutes then we were sat at a table next to three people talking very loudly when the place was about a quarter full. Good was good, waitress messed up the order a little, and would absolutely not recommend nor go there again. Plenty of other specialist steakhouses that have effective staff.

    Nice steaks well cooked - that's what we went for. Accompaniments were average and the Cauliflower steak missed the mark. Service was friendly but inexperienced, lucky it was not busy

    I have been here before and it was quite different this time. The first conversation was an apology for the lack of staff. once seated we ordered drinks, and then entrees... and before the entrees had arrived we were being pressured into ordering mains (this was a 7 pm booking so not late at all). Entrees were ok. A question mark over the weight of the "1kg" T bone - but by all accounts it was great. My steak was something I could have got at any pub - overcooked and a bit stringy. The dessert was good and overall the experience was not quite what I thought it would be. Would I go back? Maybe.

    the eye fillet was the better of the 2 cuts we chose - for next time . the wine was good noting covid prob plsyer havoc with wine stocking ability. the calamari was great , bread was great , the sides were good and we finished with a single malt as it was heavily raining outside and we chose to stay longer . nice venue very comfortable room and ambience .

    We all felt the night was average. We treated our son for his birthday and when we mentioned this to the waiter there was no acknowledgement. Service was okay but lacked warmth. Steaks were all cooked as requested and very nice but for the price $60-110 we expected better Two of us ordered the eye fillet which we don’t believe was eye fillet… thin pieces with a thick rind of fat and a round centre full of fat. The wagyu was delicious but not $109 worth. We didn’t realize sauce was charged an extra $4.50 each…It is assumed a sauce comes with a steak as do the sides. A coke is $7…At about $85 a head no alcohol … and kids still not satisfied… not happy There was no atmosphere, it was overpriced and 3 non appealing desserts. Unfortunately not for us. Won’t be returning

    Overpriced and terrible service. Despite a lack of customers (only 3 -4 tables were seated), the waitress asked us a few times if we had finished our entree and main, even when there was still plenty of food on the plate (We finished our dinner in around an hour). Over 200 dollars for two people. Food was extremely slaty. Waste of money.

    Kingsley's is still a great place for a steak. The waitstaff are knowledgeable and helpful. One negative is that the wine list does not have the as many "museum" release wines available as they have had in the past. Looking forward to my next opportunity to dine there.

    Service was poor - our waitress was quite rude. Steak was blue when I ordered medium rare & was very chewy for $60, chips were cold and onion rings inedible due to excessive oil. Only good thing was the cocktails

    I feel like Kingsley's is hanging on to what it once was, or trying to be more than it is. The last time I dined at Kingsley's was when they were located on the wharf, and it was white tablecloth service, the kind of place the finance boys would go after a big sale to blow their bonus on a big bottle of red. There was a Wall Street decadence and sleazy opulence that really suited a place which specialises in meat. The tables now are bare and chipped lacquer, the noise is house trance beats and over-loud conversations. The clientele are tourists drawn by the self-description of being an "Australian steakhouse", family get togethers, and more casual boys night out. The food was really good. Just enjoyable. It was tasty, well executed, well presented. We had a good meal. The wait staff were smiling, attentive, efficient. All said, I feel like Kingsley's is just a wrung below excellent, ever so slightly below what it seems to aspire to be, and what it's prices lead you to expect. Maybe that's a Covid thing, or maybe it's a problem of expectations founded on a memory from a decade ago.
