Quay Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
From the moment we approached the front door, the staff were ready to open the door and greet us. We were seated and never made to feel rushed.
We were given sufficient time to settle, order our first round of drinks, enjoy the view before we ordered our meals.
The menus are well balanced, with 4 or 8 course options.
Staff were attentive - right up to the last moment as our waiter was waiting at the door to farewell us.
Its the little things we remembered, and it was just right
Loved the experience. Wait staff friendly and most important appeared to have a sense of humour. Food - yum. Taste buds awoken with deep favours and food never experienced before. Four course - small protions, but the right size and the right amount of time to enjoy the courses. Would liked to have slightly more of the lamb, a beautiful dish. The desserts - signature dish of the snow egg was also a delightful experience, refreshing. Shared this foodie experience with my beautiful partner.
The food was not good, not refined. It actually made me sick later that night. I think because it was very fat. It looked okay, not what I am used in European Michelin star restaurants. The view is fantastic. The restaurant itself is old fashioned, the interior looks very cheap and outdated. Service: people try their best but sometimes the food took very long bedoel it was served. I expect a full evening experience, I did not get it. Only one amuse(starter).
It was back to Quay for another one of life's big events and we were not disappointed. Maybe we should do the in between years too? Amazing food combinations and gorgeous wine list. Option of the full 8 courses or pick only a few was terrific, as the 8 looked too much for us for lunch. We deliberately chose a day without a cruise ship, got a fantastic sunny day from the round tower room and as usual enjoyed the harbour scene.
Good views, good atmosphere, great service and even better food. I was amazed at how well each dish had all the different textures and several layers of flavour. Serving sizes were just right to pique the diner's interest yet not taking away from the next dish. I found myself looking forward to the next dish until the last dessert was served. A truly wonderful dining experience.
Not enough words in the box but to cut it short. Service fantastic, ambience fantastic. Wagyu entree fantastic with fruity sake.
Abalone was very chewy, i have had it before and it was much better then. Quail was very pink almost raw.
mains were brilliantly prepared.
Desserts were a major letdown. Strawberry snow egg tasted like medicine lacking freshness, and honey desert unfortunately was covered in bitter honeycomb taken way too far. Let down finishing a very expensive dinner.
Right from the time we arrived,we felt the warmth and pleasantness from the staff.
Our table was strategically positioned with a beautiful view of the iconic Opera House and the Harbour bridge.
The food was excellent and beautifully presented.Staff was excellent.
We've been to Quay every year for the past 7 years for my Father's birthday celebrations.
Dining at Quay is an "experience".
The food is absolutely outstanding and the service is exceptional.
It's a special occassion venue for us, but we look forward to it every year, and are never dissapointed.
We love everything about Quay and highly recommend a dining experience in their fabulous venue.
We had a great night and experience with Quay Restaurant. Staff were friendly and professional. The ambiance was spectacular. The menu was great, it is worth what we have paid for. I cannot fault this restaurant, I think Quay is my new favorite restaurant in Sydney. I will definitely be back!
Stunningly beautiful all round. View was amazing, matched by the exceptional food and wines. Service was impeccable- a lovely balance between very professional but warm and welcoming too. This was an amazing night to celebrate a 21st ... thank you all for making it a memorable experience
Service is very good, food is great. My partner's dish had a bit of crab shells which I raised with the waiter, they were very nice and apologised and gave us a complimentary cake in the end. Have been to a lot of other restaurants for degustation but Quay's is one of my favs.
We were welcomed warmly, our food was sumptuous, the timing of each course was perfect and the wait staff were clearly professionals who enjoyed their jobs. Our day was perfect. We had received a voucher for a wedding present, but had unfortunately had a horrific car accident a few days later. We were on our first 'outing' since and it couldn't have been more special.
