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.

As long as you’re open in these crazy times, we’ll keep coming!

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.

This was our 2nd trip to Luke’s and had a wonderful evening of fine dining and friendly service. The staff were engaged and responsive in making us feel welcome and comfortable. The food was fantastic and we are already talking about when we will next book for dinner there. I highly recommend for a special occasion or to make an occasion of dining out. Thank-you

Food is good, as was the service. However, expensive for what you get. Everything was overpriced and some dishes were also on the small size. Had to wait for a steak, as it was over cooked first time, so came out later than the rest of the food. Expected better from a LM establishment.

Came here for Bottomless Brunch on Fathers Day with the family and we all had a great time. Firstly it’s a beautiful venue, nice high ceilings and quite spacious. Food menu was delish, there were some dietary requirements on our table (aka fussy eaters) and the wait staff were honestly so nice and accommodating with menu alterations so that everyone was happy.

Service was the best I’ve had in Sydney in a long time. Bottomless drinks service was efficient and they weren’t bothered by us asking for refills.

Can’t recommend enough. Already planning a return visit.

Lukes kitchen ticks all the boxes. Great venue, a restaurant and bar built with a warehouse that feels like a cool New York club. Contemporary menu, which includes a tasting menu that allows you to try all the best bits of the menu. Well considered wine list, that is not too expensive. Service is an assuming but very attentive. To top it all off Luke himself was on had to help serve and explain every course.
Highly recommended!!!

Great place, Great food, Great people! The crew are so warm and accommodating. Luke’s so friendly, approachable and so kind to have a groupie pic with us! The food- As starters, we had Rustic Chicken Liver and Bacon Pate, then the Market Plate Fish for two paired with 2017 Jim Barry and then their Reverina - worthy is the lamb...then finish it off with Luke Mangan’s signature rocky road - theatrical!!! Can’t wait to try other dishes and go back for more!

Food was very tasty but we ordered the tasting menu and, while delicious, wasn't enough food to feel satisfied. Each serving was a small portion. It need one or two of the protein plates to be a little larger to feel repleat. This was also the view of the others at the table. As it was, i was still hungry at the end of 6 tasting plates. I'd probably consider returning to the restaurant because i enjoyed the taste and cleverness of the food, we were warm on a cold winter's night, and it wasn't too noisy so conversation was easy, but i would choose my menu. Service was a little uneven in timing/ delays with service, but we were a fairly relaxed group of 4, so not a major issue.

Second visit but disappointing. The staff were pleasant but the wait between courses on the tasting menu was too long. The second bottle of white wine had to be sent back because of the over powering cork smell once poured into glasses. The meat dish on the is menu was disappointing as the meat was too tough.

Our first visit was a much more pleasant experience and I got the feeling that the restaurant was under manned for the number of people in it. Also we were at the edge of the large space at the back of the restaurant which is not that pleasant due to the overpowering size of it.
