I love it there and am very impressed with the staff and their attitude towards their craft.. always good and I will be back
I have lived in Sydney and used to go to Otto quite often. I have lived overseas and continue to go to Otto every time I'm back. Over a few decades, the place has never let me down. I'll be back. Again and again.
Service was a total disjointed mess. Took so long to get our drinks and food. Servers were really indifferent and seemed harried. They wouldn’t seat us outside even though there were tables available during our entire meal. Food was fine when we finally got it, but not good enough to make up for the service. Wouldn’t recommend.
We had our work Christmas party (only 4 people!) but loved the service, the atmosphere and the food.
Very snobby pretentious restaurant. From the moment we walked up we were treated with zero respect or courtesy.
Had a very tasty dinner with my overseas friend. We both enjoyed the wagyu special very much. It was so satisfying that I don't think I need to eat beef again this month!
Always very good. Strong team that run it smoothly in a beautiful environment
Just Wow! This was an incredible meal, the food was delicious.
Impressed with their subtle yet attentive service. The outdoor seating was surprisingly warm and comfortable. The food was good.
From the moment we arrived the staff were most welcoming. Lovely table with views to city skyline and water. The only negative of the whole afternoon was that the spatchcock was a little bit dry, but overall it was a wonderful dining experience.
We enjoyed our dining experience at Otto for the waterfront location and ambience. However the sirloin steak was of poor quality and very over priced. The rissotto was delicious and reasonable price. The desserts were creative and tasty. Altogether a very expensive meal for what we ordered. We would probably not be inclined to return.
Have been to Otto quite a bit recentl. Really like it but last night was really poor. It was busy but always is, yet the service was so so slow. The food very average, over cooked steak, mind you nobody in Sydney cooks steak as you order it, is always overdone. Food was cold had been standing.Pasta with a bit of seafood outrageously priced $35 for an entree for pasta tomato and chilli and bit of seafood.
Dessert really good. wines good list, but a lot young and high prices.
My wife surprised me with a Birthday lunch at OTTO, where we had a nicely placed table front of house. Our Italian waiter was happy and attended to us with a pleasant sense of humour and professionalism. The wine waiter was enthusiastically informative and nicely confident, he wasn't pushy giving time to advise us on several excellent Italian wines from which we made our selection.
As we have found previously, the food was just sensational and generous with the whole experience forming an indelible memory for my birthday.
From the time we arrived to the time we left the service was very warm; the staff had knowledge and understanding of the menu and wine list. Great ambience. It is obviously set in a great location. A very enjoyable day.
Delicious food and exceptional service
After arriving & feeling like they didn’t have our booking, it got off to a slow start, but, once we got service it went well from there. Helpful, attentive wait staff, an apologetic sommelier when the wine we ordered had not arrived. Beautiful, beautiful food, absolutely nothing to complain about with the food at all.
Loved the food, the service and the location (great waterfront views). It’s the perfect lunch spot for any special occasion! Definitely coming back again :)
A truly great meal. The calamari and the gnocchi were exquisite. Everything from the bread through the desserts was well prepared, flavorful and well presented. I am not a dessert person, bu they do deserve special mention.
The vegan menu drew me to this restaurant. It meant i had choices. The food was delicious. The staff were very friendly and accomodating. It was a most pleasurable experience.
We asked to be moved to a corner side-by-side table and it was no trouble. Great having a sommelier who knows his wine.
We had a really nice family get together at lunch. Food was excellent, so was the service and the water outlook. A bit pricey so not a regular event but we will certainly go a few times each year.
Amazing food & service. Waiters are super friendly and willing to answer any and all questions. Have been to Otto before and every time it is absolutely amazing
Outstanding service with a perfect waiter who was quietly understated but perfectly knowledgable about the source of the produce. A good waiter is so noticeable and in an Italian restaurant so useful for some staff to have the heritage and understanding of the food.
Each bite was delectable. We couldn't fault anything. To sit outside, on a perfect Sydney Spring evening right on the water with the cruisers clinking against the Wharf made my birthday memorable.
Overall good experience
Excellent food : spaghettis and bucatini. Fresh and perfectly panna cotta was excellent.
Friendly and efficient service.
First time at this particular restaurant and we enjoyed everything. Meals were great and service was excellent.
We enjoyed very much the duck and salad very much.
as usual, the food and service were excellent and the setting very special.
My only 'gripe' was that one of our guests ordered the special pasta (I think it was pasta with lobster) and the waiter didn't mention that the dish was $155. I was a bit taken aback when I paid the bill. This should never happen!
Restaurant and service was ok without being amazing but the cost was disappointing.
We were very disappointed with our dining experience after coming here several years ago and having an exceptional meal.
The food was good but expensive . My coffee was lukewarm .
The whole dining experience was let down by offhand service and our table being situated where it was cold and draughty inside even though we had asked to move to a warmer area.
We did not feel it was value for money .
The food wasn't worth the value of money and the taste was over powering.
The drinks recommended from beers to wines was perfect.
Service was prompt and very pleasant.
Great experience, awesome location. Food was amazing, service was great.
I booked for 6,was shown too a very small table with 2 seats placed at each end, asked to be moved to a larger table was told no tables available, said we are all booked out,went to talk to someone else who moved us straight away.For an expensive restaurant the tables not very wide at all and chairs are old and plastic. Service very good, food very average for the price. I dont think I would necessary recommned this restuaruant as others in this price range are better value
The food was good, waitress was very knowledgeable. Considering the type and standard of restuarant was very slow.
I booked a table for four and specified that it was a special birthday.On the day of the reservation I actually spoke to someone at the restaurant and asked what they would do for the birthday boy .I was told that a little cupcake with a candle would be brought out.
Well none of this happened.The only thing they did was to ask me upon our arrival at the restaurant whose birthday it was.
Well we left without a little birthday celebration.
The wait staff were also quite slow in coming for our orde
Enjoyable business dinner with good food and wine. Dissappointed somewhat with the waitress serving out table,obviously having a bad day and not terribly interested in her job. My guests also commented likewise !
Usually great but the service was really disappointing this time - food good as always. Lack of customer care and attention. Wouldn't necessarily be top of mind next time for overseas guests or special occasion.
