    I've come to Lobby Boy the last two weeks - both experiences have been horrific. Waiting 45mins for a coffee with clients is so embarrassing. I will not be returning.

    Food was good but unfortunately you opened without a stocked bar. Limited to wine and water. No beer, no spirits/cocktails or ingredients for smoothies/milkshakes. As such very disappointing.

    Booked online with Open table, received confirmation and received 2nd email confirming the day before only to arrive on the day and discover it was closed. Would call direct rather than book on this site for this restaurant.

    Service can be more attentive considering there are not many patrons during lunch. The above-average of food price should be accompanied by better-than-average service.,

    I visited Lobby Boy on Wednesday, it was fairly quiet and our orders were taken within a reasonable amount of time. Unfortunately we waited close to 30 minutes and nobody gave us an update on when our food would be ready. My Truffle Gnocchi arrived cold, but I ate it anyway because I didn't have time to wait for another to be remade. When we went to pay the bill, we were told there would be a 1.5% surcharge for splitting the bill. This is fair as I understand the inconvenience of splitting the bill but the server charged us 15% instead. I paid $33.50 for the truffle gnocchi when I should've paid $30.45. This goes for all 8 of us on this table. Very disappointed and will not return again. Would like a refund for the extra % we were charged as we don't believe it was worth it.

    Excited to experience Lobby Boy as we love The Grounds. It’s a great local find! 10.30am catch up with girlfriends. Big windows lit up the sitting areas, lounge chairs, sofas, banquets, tables and chairs. Relaxed and comfortable vibe, friendly, attentive service and tasty breakfast menu. Eggs poached perfectly. Great coffee. Will be a great evening venue with a lounge room feel, lots of dark wood. Looking forward to returning.

    The quality, quantity and the care of food has certainly depreciated since this place started. The prices has risen but the amount and the quality has decreased...not sure how this makes any business sense but not going to get myself another meal here.

    For a table booked for 9am, peak hour in North Sydney for meetings, it was over 40min for the food to arrive and another 5 for coffee to turn up! Unacceptable. They didn’t appear to be understaffed at all as there were plenty just wandering around aimlessly. The food itself was tasty, although a little too much decorative weed and lettuce appeared on most meals (table of 6). It was disappointing that what was a tasty plate was ruined by the tardiness to the point that we won’t return any time soon as there are too many others in Nth Sydney to choose from that beat this place for food and service.

    The reason the ratings are so low is that we were asked to leave the table after an hour as it had been booked (I had made a booking also). I have attended many restaurants that have timed seating, but I would expect that they would notify my of this prior to making the reservation and not suddenly whilst we were seated there enjoying a beer. I was hosting a client for lunch and was left slightly red faced when we had to up and move to the couches not 5 min after we finished eating. Other than that I had no complaints - the staff were nice (even the gentleman who asked us to move), ambiance was good and food was also good.

    Ambience. Nice. Grounds always do a great job. Service while waitresses were pleasant, lost our order which am appreciative of tech failures. The lack of observation that we had been seated a while even on refill of our water to not become aware we hadn't had our coffees and food really showed the lack of good waitressing skills, especially on a fairly quiet morning at 8am. Then, wrote the wrong coffee orders down. Food, the corn and pine nut fritters were fair but not one I'll re order.

    The Lobby Boy North Sydney offers a unique dining experience - very classy and polished whilst not overpriced. Staff are very friendly and professional. Food was excellent with a menu to cater for all tastes and types. Also a great place to catch up for a quiet coffee and chat in their lounge area! Highly recommended. About time North Sydney had this type of venue to cater for us office workers.
