DISAPPOINTED!

We requested a table next to the window for our kids' birthday so they can enjoy the view of Opera House 2 weeks before but ended up sitting in the inside corner. Foods are absolutely overpriced! Seafood platter with 2 prawns, 2 oysters, 2 small crab claws and 1 little bow of chopped salmon cost $120 but the main thing is they are not fresh. Braised Berkshire Pork Cheeks is too salty that could numb your tongue!
Load of crap :(

We chose the 'feed me' option and the range and quality of the food provided was excellent, along with explanations and assistance provided by proficient and professional service staff. We've been there a few times over the years and have enjoyed the experience, our latest visit continuing the high benchmark established by this restaurant.

I took my three daughters there to celebrate the youngest's wedding next week and it was perfect for the occasion. It was a Sunday night so very relaxed atmosphere with some tables free when we were there. The view is unbeatable. The food is sensational. The staff are attentive but not intrusive. The wine list is excellent and well-priced. And the overall bill was a very pleasant surprise. My only slight criticism was that there was no solely chocolate dessert on the menu (the one there was mocha) - but that is just my personal preference and a very minor glitch. Thank you to all who made it such a wonderful experience.

the dinning room was a great way to celebrate a special birthday. We thought we were a little invisible at times as the table behind us, who were loud and kept moving our bench seat everytime they stood up, they were very demanding, but we are also customers who were no bother and not loud got overlooked at times

Nice spot for High Tea, with great views and a nice selection of treats. Only thing that spoiled the experience was the waiters being over keen with the arrival of the bill (we’d barely finished our drinks) and then ushering us out when we still had drinks to finish, and then being told there wasn’t anywhere to sit in the bar so ended up sitting in a kind of entrance way. Was also quite noisy but not so much that you couldn’t have a conversation. I think there are better places for afternoon tea.

We had afternoon tea to celebrate birthday. Food was outstanding, it was really delicious. We definitely would like to have it again.
However the service wasn't good enough for us. We wanted to order tea but nobody came even we were sure we had eyes contact with a waitress more than 3 times. It took while and finally we could order tea but she just brought a cup and tea wasn't served 10 minutes. Also after that every time we needed to call waiter to order something, it took while finding waiter as well. We couldn't feel it was 5 stars hotel's service.
We would like to share our experiences and we hope it helps improving your service.

A wonderful family dinner for my 50th. Some wonderful food, beautiful and relaxed five-star dining, even for our younger kids. Some hiccups with service, but they were compensated for generously by the head waiter. I'd love to return.

The food was amazing, presented well and tasted great. Unfortunately, the service was slow and it seemed we had 5-6 different people waiting on us and it was hard to get attention to get to get water topped up or to even order dessert and to get our bill. The food was great and the view was worth it but it was disappointing to not have very good service. It was a lunch time on a Friday where they weren't very busy either.

I was there at the Dinning Room on the 16th of Jan 2019 with my beloved wife. It was our couple-only night out without the kids. Enjoyed the beautiful harbour view which is the greatest selling point. The service was pretty good where all staff are very attentive and very friendly. The food was nice and up to quality. We ordered two starters and two mains. I have a very high expectation on the signature dish Fremantle octopus. I was expecting for a crispy-skin and tender-inside type of cooking style which wasn't the case. Maybe its my wrong expectations from grilled baby octopus dishes elsewhere. However, the source for the Fremantle octopus is still very nice and worth to highlight. The size of the each dish may appears to be small in portion. However if you ordered starter+main+sides, it can actually fill up your stomach. Being a guess at this restaurant, the focus should be on the effort and quality of the food preparation instead of something big to fill up your stomach. Dinning Room has done a good job overall. The price was around $235 including all the food plus drinks that we ordered. Decent pricing given the prestige location and services provided. Keep up the good work on enhancing its food would certainly bring it to a Michelin star rating.

Four course meal with pre dinner drinks was superb.

Very very fresh plates, with emphasis on creativity, which we enjoyed.

Seafood was devine.
Deserts were too sweet for us, but if you have a sweet tooth, you're in heaven.

Scenery for evening, changing from day to night on the waterfront with big boats leaving, was very nice and a pleasant change from suburban dining.

Highly recommended.

Travelled down from Lake Macquarie for 6pm dinner {4 adults } pre-Opera House show. Selected the dinning venue above countless other establishments because of its 4.4 rating. Turned out to be a excellent choice. The food was outstanding as where the staff.
The comments at our table , where that although being a bit exspensive it was one of the best meal they had ever had { beutifully cooked and displayed Plus hot when presented }.
So impressed with the establishment, we are in the process of confirming a date to re-visit for breakfast and possible stop over night.
Regards,Peter - Susan Howe

The restaurant offer a 2 or 3 course meal with a glass of wine. However, for an adult non drinker, the only option was for a glass of orange juice - not exactly compatible with fine dining. On the waiter's return, I pushed about the drink and suggested a glass of mineral water was reasonable to offer and which was agreed. The meal was delicious and the view lovely.

This place is good for any time. But specifically good for dinner with the window view/ glimpse of Opera House at night and the ferries crossing the Opera House. What else you would want having a dinner like that? The food is really good. Friendly staff and quite environment.
