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.

We very much enjoyed the night out at Restaurant Hubert. Service was excellent , the food was a good sample of French Cuisine. The noise level is somewhat high. Perhaps it might be higher when the band starts - we missed this as we enjoyed the earlier opening time. We do intend to return and enjoy the degustation meal offered to tables of 4 plus

First time at Hubert and will definitely be back again. The food was amazing and can recommend the chicken fricassee, steak, and the fish of the day. Their seasonal desserts were also very impressive. Will definitely be back again. Our table also enjoyed their January Jazz season, the band on our night were fantastic. Hoping they'll consider extended the season or offer jazz on a regular basis. The vibe was very 'New York' but with a Sydney flare.

It was very good first one hour. Then after that the personal started to forget you because they were focused to the next customers. It’s a bity because you want to enjoy hole 2 hours ( we had a table 5.30pm to 7.30 pm). Food is great and atmosphere as well. Please let the customers feel important hole 2 hours.

Attended with friends for the jazz in January with $60 set course menu. Meal was disappointing and did not display the french style that the restaurant advertises. The wine-list, whilst extensive, did not provide a variety of price-points that were reasonable. The two hour time limit was fine but the waiter really pushed us through.
A disappointing evening at this restaurant.

Sadly just a bit too busy noisy and lacking that special occasion feeling due to the well worn bistro look. Food was reasonable particularly the chicken and 1kg beef to share.The the former is worth the visit and later being quite expensive yet very tasty.
However order individual a la carts dishes as the 6/7 course set menu was poor value with limited number of entrees to share given to our table.

Wonderful food and service.
But..
But ...
The noise was a big distraction as we were a table of 6 and it was impossible to coverse with anyone who wasn’t beside you. This means I can’t really recommend for groups or occasions when you want to speak to others.
Food and service wonderful
but international guests I couldn’t speak to was a big negative on this visit
We will try again with a smaller group perhaps

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....

They did put it down as the night came to a end

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.
