We had a great time. Food was good but most of all really appreciated how the team responded to my request for a window seat for a special occasion. We were blown away by the private space it made it a night to remember. Thanks guys!

Great location. Service was fine although they ran out of one of the dishes we ordered and when we chose something else, they tried to charge for both at the end.

If you want a good meal while viewing THE Sydney Icons in a pleasant environment this is the place. The noise was not a problem and the food was as advertised on the menu and all served by conscientious, friendly and efficient staff. A very good afternoon on a perfect Mothers Day

If you are looking for an amazing view of Sydney harbor while dinning with friends, look no further. The menu is a little limited but the food is great, there is something for everyone. I had the seafood hot pot which was amazing they got the flavors of the broth perfectly. Great wine list and the service was fantastic.

One of the best views in Sydney with a great range of beers on tap including some house brews. Great service and atmosphere. Food was Ok but a litttle average. Seafood hot pot was a little cold and had 1 prawn. Steak had a fair bit of gristle in it. For the price, you generally expect better. Dessert was great - banoffee pie 😋

All dishes basically served with same garniture.

Besides the incredible view of the opera house, the food was lame (no salads of any kind?), the servers snobby, and the prices reflecting a better experience on both counts.

So, the place was really just ok.
Food was not bad. Give it more stars because the view is outstanding.
The service was not very good. Our waiter was clueless and I assumed it was just that Australia thing but found out he was from Texas? Embarrassing.
Bar service in particular was just bizarre. Martini came in a rocks glass and hardly made it wet. The waiter didn’t know what a martini was. Finally got it straight but painful.
Ordered tap water three times and never got it.
Go for the view

We would like to make a particular mention to Ryan the establishment manager who made us feel so welcome and special during the evening, and we would also like to make a call out to Leah (Princess) who was our waiter that evening and was attentive to our needs as well as a delight to serve us. Thanks for a great evening.

Starters were very tasty, mains weren’t as expected and but desert was lovely. Service was great, staff were very attentive and nice. The views were amazing overlooking the Harbour bridge and opera house. What I didn’t enjoy was that half the restaurant was full off loud drunks over the other side of the bar, having to squeeze through groups of people drinking just to get to the bathrooms. If you’re gonna have a nice fancy restaurant keep the loud drinkers downstairs with the rest of them.

As someone , who eats out quite a bit , be it for entertaining clients , birthday party's or just Sunday evening tea , this will be my new go to place , the views are among the best in the world not just in Sydney , we had an american waiter , he was fantastic , the food was lovely , a small bit on the expensive side , but you don't mind paying a little extra for that kind of service .
I will certainly be a repeat customer

Great position looking towards the Opera House at Circular Quay but not much to choose from on the menu! I feel it’s over priced for what you get! Went to the restaurant upstairs.. downstairs would’ve been better value and more to choose from! Service average!

Thanks for the attention, however I was extremely disappointed with some of the wait staff. In asking for two glasses of wine, they instead gave me the entire bottle, and two seperate wines! Of course I insisted on just the two glasses of a regular wine, which one waitstaff kindly took away the bottle and apologised for the misunderstanding. After that we had another waiter attend our table and tell us we can only have this bottle, however this was not even made clear to us as we asked for a recommendation of just two glasses of wine! Very clear that we were being taken advantage of in a circumstance where we couldn’t articulate in English. Extremely disappointed from that experience, my friend was made to buy two different wines, and a bottle, when they simply wanted two glasses. The waiter knew this and knowingly manipulated the table into buying more and not taking it back when we confronted him. Appalled. “This was written by some one else due Sebastian luck of English.”

We had a reservation booked for Saturday 23rd March for 4 people and we were disappointed with the value and quality of food, we ordered the prawns to start and to share as there were 4 of us, we expected to receive at least 4 however we received 3 which seemed strange. For the main course, we ordered two dishes again to share as the steak on the menu suggested it was 500grams (enough to share) however when we received the steak it was definitely not 500grams more like 350grams and the Lamb was mainly gristle and fat.
Slightly disappointing on the food.
