Not bad

I came here for a work function. It took a while to be served at the bar since it was a busy Friday night and the food was so-so (pizza and pasta). I am curious about the rest of their menu items though. They have a decent selection of drinks and their apple cider (on tap) was great. I'd probably... read more

After two years going to Beresford on Sundays evening/night to have a few drinks with my friends I realised that since two Sundays ago you have to pay $20 fee if you want to go Upstairs. That is sucks. Now they are performing 3 shows, at 8pm, 10pm and 12 pm. I'm really dissapointed with that decission. Now everybody is... More

Went here with the girls for some bubbly and some lunch. I had the Wagyu steak and a friend had the salmon. We started with a shared dish of pasta. The food was tasty - not super-generous in size - but what you would expect from a "see and be seen" kind of place like the Beresford. The beer garden... More

The Beresford is definitely THE place to be on a sunday night in Sydney. Enjoy great music, stay at the bar or go to Level 1 for a great dancefloor!

The night was balmy and the outside terrace a cool place to be with friends. Lots of groovy people drinking , chatting , laughing and enjoying each others company as they waited for food to arrive to their numbered tables. Our group of four, ordered a gnocchi with lamb ragu , a nice australian twist on an Italian basic ,... More

Nice joint with great backyard. Great at the time with good weather, but they have great indoor as well. Was there for drinks only but enjoy the time there.

Booked a table of 8 people for a Saturday night. Yes it was busy. We went and ordered at the bar all at the same time. The everyone got their meals except 3 of us. The remaining meals came 15 minutes later; in this time the rest of the group had finished their dinner. How hard is it to get... More

Came for a Sunday lunch and was extremely disappointed. The whole food ordering at the bar makes it so slow and irritates everyone. Given how busy the place is surely an extra till just for food ordering is justified. The vegetarian pasta is an epic fail. Pasta, frozen peas- no sauce. The venue is great but the system they employ... More
