There is a special moment that sometimes happens over dinner. When the table goes silent. When all you can hear is the clinking of cutlery. Maybe the odd sigh of satisfaction. When the meal is just so good, no one needs to say it. Everyone just knows. Here at InterContinental Sydney Double Bay, we believe that food has a unique power to bring people together. Where words are few, but memories are many.

From the earliest of times, the act of preparing, cooking and enjoying food has been able to unite people in a shared love of the moment. But in the same way, everyone has a particular way they like their eggs cooked, so too do we all have a certain view, or outlook we need to create the ideal eating environment. With that in mind, we are thrilled to be able to offer an array of wonderful dining areas throughout the hotel - each one unique, each one offering something special to tempt you.

So, come in, sit down and let us spoil you.

    The food was excellent and the service was A1. The spaghetti and calamari were fresh and tasty. The wait staff friendly and attentive. The ambience is lovely. Only complaint is we booked this expecting to be in restaurant but on arrival was told that due to Covid they were only serving in the bar area. Disappointed this was not known beforehand. Otherwise a lovely dinner and experience.

    Considering we were one of only two tables for dinner in the restaurant the service should have been very attentive, particularly as we were celebrating a birthday too. The table (along with most other tables) was set for breakfast (jams, no wine glasses, etc); the waitress asked for our food orders when she had only provided half the table with menus; disappeared for ages at a time, etc. On several occasions we had to pour our own wine and water. At the end of mains the wait was so long that I decided to enter the kitchen to get someone to attend to us! The food was hit and miss and overall average. Ridiculously poor service in any establishment let alone one that was so quiet and let alone an InterContinental! There’s too many other options to ever want to return. Why bother?

    Oriental High Tea was quite novel and tasty but nothing above and beyond for what you would expect from the Intercontinental hotel. Tea selection was poor, considering it was a High Tea. All the standard tea selections you would get at a cheap cafe. The Traditional High Tea that my friends had was delicious but not plentiful. They made an effort to make one gluten free and that was appreciated. Service was slow and unhelpful at times. I felt sorry for the one girl who tried to do everything for the room full of guests. More staff should be available during busy times. Overall though it’s a beautiful setting and we had a lovely time.

    very poor service, food very little, and not fresh/ scones were dry and tasteless/ sandwich one each sweets are also not fresh. All together not worth the money what you get is worth $50.00 not$ 128.00 . Won't recommend to anyone to go there and have High Tea.

    Greeted by warm welcome. Ambiance and service was a let down for this restaurant. Eg. Waitress did not have good knowledge of cocktail menu and the restaurant appeared too quiet and did not feel cosy despite the small space it was in. Bar and food taste was good eg. Cocktails were nice and food had great taste.

    We went to The Stillery for high tea. The savoury was very average and the bread tasted stale. The sweets were nice. The service was terrible, only really spoken to at the beginning and end. Usually you are offered a top up of hot/cold water. Thev venue itself was beautiful.

    I was really looking forward to our lunch here - from the outside, the venue is beautiful, elegant, and with a gorgeous menu, wine and cocktail list. Unfortunately, the meal itself was a real disappointment - my steak (requested: medium rare) was overcooked, my friends' meals similarly lacklustre, and the service really not particularly attentive (difficult to order more drinks, finished glasses left on the table, etc.) Perhaps it's because we were there mid-week, and the whole atmosphere was quiet, but it just wasn't what I'd expected from such a lovely place to be frantically waving to get attention. Overall - I wouldn't return here.

    Service was very poor. Made a booking and still waited 45 mins to get any food and had to ask twice to get our tea. We’d almost finished our food by the time the tea arrived. Didn’t even seem all that busy there but yet still had to wait for everything. Very limited tea menu for a High Tea and then couldn’t even provide one tea that was asked for. Food was average at best - the ‘hot’ food was served cold.

    Up there with my favourite dining experiences. We had a three course dinner with flavours designed to pair perfectly with the included G&T cocktail. The food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. I especially loved the Gin Chicken main and G&T lemon tart for dessert. Would highly recommend dining here for a special occasion such as an anniversary or birthday. The wait staff were lovely and the intimate atmosphere/setting is perfect.

    Had a Ladies Day out and thought High Tea at Stillery would be great. However, it was quite disappointing and service pretty lacking. They charged an extra $9 dollars for a second cup of tea ( in previous High Tea experiences, I have had as many teas or coffees as we want with the High Tea. Also, very limited in tea choices. We had a fun time but wouldn' t go back, there are better choices.

    For $150 per head (only entre and main) i expected more. The entres (both got sashimi) came out too quickly and was dry, like it had been prepped earlier, it didn't feel fresh. The mains were very boring. Chicken with not much flavor around it and beef tenderloin i could have made myself at home. Nothing was terrible, it was just very under-whelming for the price. And also considering we could have gone to Sake downstairs for the same money and 10 times the quality.

    I think the $65 charged per person for Afternoon Tea was overwhelmingly expensive. Two little sandwiches each and not the freshest, a mixture of savoury and sweet bites - all on one plate tier for two people was disappointingly minimal. It looked like it came straight out of the fridge without any effort whatsoever (served within 1 minute proved that!). Some unique dish to the Intercontinental would have been welcome. I eat there regularly with my husband for business lunches. We usually have the salads - which are generally good. When I asked to take the mostly uneaten sweet bites away with us, I was refused by the waiter who said that the hotel didn't have a "licence" for that..... Ahem really! I was embarrassed as I had recommended we try it to a friend who was treating me. She didn't get good value for money and we won't be booking it again. Having lived in the UK for about 20 years, I can recommend you have your staff check out how the Waldorf, Ritz, Savoy do Afternoon Tea. The Intercontinental, if it made the effort, could make itself the place to have Afternoon Tea in Sydney.
