Friday night was our second visit since Luke re-opened.
This is definitely our go to venue for a reasonably upmarket eating experience. Fantastic food, very attentive, friendly staff and a safe, attractive venue.
Luke always most welcoming and up for a chat.

I don't normally do reviews, but just had to for this restaurant. The food was exceptional, the service outstanding. The chefs even shared a receipe with us for one of the courses we loved. Being a warehouse style location there was plenty of social distancing, which made me feel really comfortable. Luke himself was also at the restaurant and served a few of our dishes and made a joke or two. Great all round experience.

Surprised my boyfriend taking him here to the First Dates restaurant after he fell in love with the TV Show! We both couldn't have been happier with the insane choices and quality of food, the professional service and even got to meet Luke Mangan half way through the dinner!
Cannot wait to come back again!
Thanks!

Food is amazing. Service was poor with a long wait between courses and no-one refilling wine (unlike the first time we went which was much better).

Loved Luke's..

Have recommended it to 3 of our friends thus far.. Will be back!

Smocked Negroni - yum
Artichoke Tart - top pick
Barramundi was our choice over the braised beef.
Soft meringue - delish

Serves are massive... Would happily pay same for lease.

Certainly one of Sydney's hidden gems!

In Danks Street Waterloo, this converted warehouse space furnished in industrial modern houses a real find. We dined on Saturday night, greeted by owner Luke Mangan when we arrived, then taken to our table. Prompt friendly and efficient service, we had the five course degustation (outstanding) and matching wines. Could not fault anything and we will definitely return with friends. Recommended.

It was very nice to be on occasions, served by Luke himself. Otherwise, there was very little in the explanation of the dishes. They were places, and told what dish of the degustation course, eg this is the lamb dish, this is the fish course, and that was it. The same happened with the waiters serving the wines. No description or notes on where the wine came from our how is grown and why it pairs well with the dish it was paired with. In some cases, these dishes didn't pair well with those wines.

Been here many times and am always very pleased to see Luke himself out working the floor in the restaurant alongside his team.

Food was great, service as awesome as usual.

We enjoyed our meal and the overall experience. The dishes were tasty and used high-quality ingredients, and the service was great. I personally really enjoyed the oysters, the coconut pannacotta, and the butterflied prawns.
