Very classy restaurant with gourmet meals. They explain to you what dishes are made of. Very decent and classy treatment. Bit expensive but worth it.

good to go on night, where you want a crowd around you, every working person's watering hole, most people wearing suits, just a good place for a crowd.

I loved this place , I went 3 nights in a row. It's so spacey, the decoration is nice. The music is perfect for a great night. This place is decent, fancy and has a level of style. I didn't try the food, so I can't judge.

The Garden at the Establishment is quite a find set near Wynyard Station and the Sydney Stock Exchange towards the Quay end of the city. Great amosphere, good selection of food and drinks, perfect for lunch or dinner. Staff attentive and friendly. The lovely large lounge bar area at the entrance is a good spot to wait for friends.

We tried the sushi pace up on the fourth floor (I think) WOW The food was excellent, the ambiance was perfect, right lighting, the live music wasn´t too loud. Everyone was very attentive and polite. The only thing you have to be patient, tables might take a while to come by. Even if you have a reservation, that might not... More

Excellent food and very good customer service. I particularly love the ambience of the restaurant which has high ceilings and thus reduces the noise.

Place is nicely set up. Pretty chandelier Victorian style at the front and 'garden' outdoor feel at the back. Beautiful people and funky music.

We were welcomed by the most friendly and helpful waitress. The menu was well detailed and took us sometime to reach our decisions. The waitress was incredibly well informed about the ingredients that comprised the dishes and that helped us finalise our choices. The international wine list provided a very wide range in price, age and quality. The 2008 Balthazar... More
