    We felt like we were an inconvenience to the the waiter. had the Hot and Cold Seafood plate for two. The cold part was good and fresh . The hot part was very disappointing being a lot of calamari and not much else 2 small prawns and 1 tiny bit of fish. We have dined there many times but having to go through the Restaurant to find someone to order desert left me cold. I won't be back

    The staff @ the Point are consummate professionals. The food is top notch and they ALWAYS make guests feel special. They are an exceptional establishment hit hard by covid. If you have the time and $$ I cannot recommend this restaurant more highly. A true bay treasure for locals (half price platters right now) and a selling point to the tourists. Such great quality.

    Have been before and ince again food was ok ... scallops with crispy pork belly entre very good but our crispy pork belly mains were not crispy unfortunately this time which was disappointing. "Crispy" means crispy. Very good cocktails and nice location.

    The only good thing was the garlic, parmesan cob bread. Food was very salty especially the seafood chowder. For the price you pay, it was not worth it. Definitely would not return. Very disappointed!

    Nice sea food restaurant with a terrific view over Port Stephens. Ambiance is modern and stylish. Food is well prepared and nicely presented. Service is very friendly but can be a bit slow at times. For the style and price level The Point should get rid of the paper napkins and supply their guests with textile ones.
