Hubert is a French restaurant located in the heart of downtown Sydney.

At Hubert we believe that a fine restaurant is as much about the ambience, good conversation and laughter, as it is the quality of the wine and food. The space is warm, the lighting soft and the Champagne abundant.

We hope you enjoy the restaurant as much as we do.

From seeing the name amongst the 10 best restaurants in Sydney I have booked it but it is rather a company Christmas party place(and not only before X-mas), the place looks good but the food? Not amongst the 100 best in Sydney which I have visited....

Regards,

L.Beck

Every thing was fabulous the only downside was the music was very loud when we first sat down
They did put it down as the night came to a end
We could all talk then

I am very lucky, I travel all over the world, I eat in the best restaurants and seek out amazing food. Hubert’s is somewhere we come back to time and time again as it is THE best food in NSW. It’s also somewhere we get great service, unbelievably good wines and just enjoy every moment we are there. Thanks so much team James!

The first contact we had at reception was that we were told we would have to be out by 8:00 pm because the table was booked for a second sitting

This was the welcome. Not encouraging.
Later the maître d’ came to tell us she had contacted the later diners and set their booking back by half an hour.

Problem solved to our satisfaction

The meal and wine was excellent service very good

We had Jacob as our waiter twice in a row (first time was a coincidence) second time we asked for him because he’s just freaking awesome!! The food is amazing and ambiance is perfect. I will definitely come back to Sydney and visit this restaurant again! I have a friend visiting Sydney and I’ve told her to ask for Jacob’s section :-)

Went to Hubert's for lunch to celebrate my daughters birthday.
The food was very good. There were three of us and we all enjoyed our meal.
The restaurant has a great atmosphere although a little dark.
Entering from the main street through a single doorway and down two flights of stairs you are pleasantly surprised when you arrive at the receptionist desk.
I would definitely come again.

I'm a coeliac and was very vocal about requiring a gluten free diet. The wilaiter ran through a list of 10 things on the banquet but it's hard to take it all in. The first 3 items to come out I double checked and then was informed they will make it very clear. I got my own chicken and kale while everyone else got chicken and salad and potatoes. I thought the kale was to replace the salad but it turned out I could have the salad but not the potatoes... Too late. Next time I will be the annoying guy asking at every turn.
It's been a tough 40 hours.

Overall had a wonderful time- it helped that the restaurant wasn’t too busy. The food was excellent as were the drinks. The service on the whole was great- only negative was the initial person serving us - felt that he was slightly impatient and intolerant- perhaps he doesn’t enjoy his job or maybe that’s just the French way 😄

For my first time and date night, I couldn't have envisioned a more picture perfect night. I was a little curious about how my dining experience would be on the bar but honestly I think I preferred it. Staff were attentive without impacting or overbearing our experience. The food was as wonderful as you'd expect and the wine offering, knowledge and the willingness to share that knowledge had me feeling welcomed and respected as a guest. My partner and I were blown away and I couldn't recommend this place any more than it has been by friends. We will be back!

Superb french fare, not too rich in flavours. They gave the table to us 25mins after our booking time but thats because the previous people didn't want to leave. So they gave us a round of drinks in the bar as an apology. The table service was very good - great young waiter. Really enjoyable night. Refreshing to have a restaurant where our dinner started at 10pm and that was acceptable to the kitchen. Great quality.

We were a group of six and thoroughly enjoyed the ambience as soon as we walked in the door, down the stairs and to our table.
Food was uniquely French and delicious. Wine too expensive but delicious too.
It did get a bit too noisy and hard to hear across the table. Otherwise a very good night out with friends.

The ambience was fantastic. The band was nice to listen to. The waitstaff was horrendous. Probably the rudest waiters I've ever experienced. The food AND DRINKS are way too overpriced. For a dinner of 7 people the bill came out to just under $500 - and we ordered cheap meals.

Great night out on Wednesday at Huberts. Food and Service was great as always. A special treat was the 4 piece jazz ensemble which created a great atmosphere
The classic gin martini and margarita at the bar are also great

I regret to admit that I was not able to finish everything on my plate when the mains arrived BUT I will be back with a vengeance hungry for a second chance their banquet.
Advice for any newbies: eat the bread in moderation, drink lots of water and an equal amount of red wine and prepare yourself for a food journey you won't forget!

As you can tell my friends and I had a splendid time celebrating my partners birthday at Hubert's and although we had a single awkward encounter with one of the waiters facts are Hubert restaurant is amazing.

Excellent food and superb wine list. Classically French feel. Service very good especially the Sommelier. Coconut dessert only disappointing feature of the culinary experience. Pricing is at the upper end of expectations.
Also disappointed that there was no live music on a Friday/Saturday night. We had booked for a number of reasons including the expectation of live music. Overall enjoyable experience and will definitely revisit and recommend Hubert to friends.

Good aspects & bad aspects but overall not at all in line with our expectations.
Our expectation was that Hubert would have lovely French food, service in line with being a very good restaurant and great ambience.
My wife and I came to Hubert for lunch, we were there around noon and were sat in an empty room right near the reception and stairs, I like the lighting and ambience but my wife thought it too dark.
For starters, we thought the food was on mark - but served terribly, we ordered the Duck Parfait and Prime Beef Tartare (very atypical for Tartare being served as a salad, but I really enjoyed the flavor combinations). The issue was the Parfait and Tartare was brought out almost 10 minutes before the bread for the Parfait, so we sat and waited - simply not good enough from the kitchen - if the bread was still in the oven then hold back the service until ready.
For our mains we both ordered the Steak Frites (one medium and one medium rare) and a Red velvet lettuce Salade. The mains arrived as my wife was still finishing her starter, we waited for the salade but it didn't arrive so I asked our waitress who said it should come soon, it arrived about 7-8 mins after the steaks.
I enjoyed my steak (med-rare) though my wife thought hers too bloody and too salty, the frites were really oddly seasoned and very salty, she left most of hers. The Salade dressing was extremely strong, way too overpowering and again too salty, but with 1/3 dressing I think it would have been really good.
We didn't bother with desert.
So overall it was ok, but food & service was very patchy and so we will go to Felix next time - Hubert probably best kept as a fun place for a night at the bar.

I had high expectations for this place based on friends recommendations so I suggested to a colleague for lunch. Ambience was ok, staff were friendly, but all that didnt really matter when the food wasnt very good. The steak, whilst pink, was salty, tough and dry - for both of us, different steaks. The salad was oily. The wine was nice but seriously overpriced. Frankly I was embarrassed. We were looking for a french food experience, we could have had better steak and chips at a pub at considerably less cost. And they dont serve espresso, just filter coffee. Won't be going back.
