Outstanding food and friendly service. Very enjoyable from beginning to end. My beef was cooked perfectly and the sticky date pudding was delicious on a cold, rainy night. Will be back!

This is a fabulous place to eat, run by beautiful people who love to create great food. The staff are incredibly friendly, serving modern Australian food that never disappoints. Even better in these times of social distancing and self-isolation, the fantastic food will continue to be available by home delivery or pick up from the restaurant door. I have been eating at Our Place regularly for over 10 years and am looking forward to enjoying more fabulous meals in my own place while we all live through the virus - then will be back to eat here again.

Reliably good as usual. I had a lovely Birthday & my 94 year old mother in law also feels looked after & welcomed as well as the young people. The Tech free Tuesday challenge was a great opportunity for us to ditch our screens & enjoy each others' company in return for a small free brownie & icecream. Nice idea! Thanks Marco

What a great little place. The food was so well done. Everything we ordered was so tasty. Service was good and it was obvious that many people were regular visitors. I would highly recommend this restaurant to others without hesitation.

A lovely place to relax with a bottle of BYO wine & enjoy a menu that caters to a broad school of tastes - some easy & basic items there, done well. But the more adventurous will be rewarded.

Staff excellent.

Do leave room for dessert.

I booked almost a week in advance and we ended up on pretty much the worst table in the restaurant. The waiter did apologise but it was very disappointing. The booking process itself was a bit confusing as we were a party of 2 adults, a 13 and 10yr old. When booking, you were advised to only book for adults and put any kids in the comments field. I booked for three and advised of the ages of the party of four in total. We were seated at a table for three tucked away in the very back of the restaurant near the entrance to the kitchen.

The food coming out was very very slow and overall it was an underwhelming experience and we would not be coming back.

Food was nice but by the time it came out we were just over the entire night and ready to go home.

Service was a bit slow, probably because it was pretty busy, but otherwise it was a very enjoyable evening with excellent food. It's worth going back to.

The Snapper Pie is the standout here; an unusual combination with porcini mushrooms which is absolutely delicious. Although it can be slow as the crust is baked while you wait. Reasonably priced wine by the glass also.

Yes would definitely recommend this restaurant to our family and friends. All the food we have tried is so delicious and fresh. The Chef must be good to continually serve up such delights. Staff are exceptional and want to make your experience a memorable one. We felt so relaxed and enjoyed our dinner there its hard to not want to go back. I hope this restaurant is a stayer in Balmain. If you haven’t tried it, do yourself a favour and book a table. You won’t be disappointed.

We had a most enjoyable experience at Our Table. The food was excellent, as was the service. A bit noisy, but that's what happens when everyone is having a good time. Yhe gnocchi with pumpkin and spinach was outstanding and the honeycomb cheesecake was divine. We would definitely return and highly recommend this restaurant.

A group of friends had dinner at "Our Place on Darling", they suggested we take the private dining room which seats 10 people and it was perfect . We loved the food and it was great value for money, byo wine was a bonus as well. The staff were very friendly, we will be back.

We love this restaurant. Great atmosphere and really good food. The staff are friendly which makes the experience better. Another great aspect is that you can book a time when you want to be there and not one of those places with only two sittings! A great place to eat and relax and highly recommended.

Loved this place! It was my second time there. The food is delicious. They know how to cook their proteins and the skin was crispy on the fish as promised in their menu. The flavours are wow as well. We had the barramundi with crispy skin which was yum, the lamb was pink and juicy and the confit duck was delicious. The desserts were yummy particularly honey comb cheese cake was to die for. Great espresso martinis as well. The service was very attentive and polite. It just felt like one big happy family everyone who worked there. We loved it and would love to go back again at some point.

Food was superb, staff were under the pump & restaurant was full. We had the oysters & polenta chips to start (oysters are freshly shucked & amazing)!!!! I had the duck confit salad which was divine, other guests had the burger & the pesto gnocchi. Topped off with dark chocolate truffles & coffee & the chocolate fondant. Well priced for the quality of the food. Repeat customers- love the incredible quality of food served here. A little noisy if you are looking for a quieter ambience- but this was not a problem for us.

Our group from Canada were celebrating 2 fiftieth birthdays and had a great time. We originally began going to our place for the welcoming and fun ambiance and delicious home made food but we've continued for the excellence in service, and welcoming hosts and servers.

This time, the owner and his son even took time to visit with us and share some personal Australian stories. We loved that they were running in a marathon for men's mental health and had a promo on for anyone NOT using a cellphone at the table.

Our entire crew feels that "OUR PLACE" is our place! 10 out of 10 - I recommend!

Second time eating at this place and thoroughly enjoyed it again. Brought some friends this time and they loved it too. So good that its byo wine which keeps the cost down. It was a little too noisy though as it was a cold night and the front door needed to stay closed. But overall a great night. The staff and service was top notch as was the food.
