First of all, let me say most of the dishes included in our degustation menu were very good, some excellent and generally speaking we were pretty happy. However, there were one or two that were only Ok. They weren't bad by any means, but when you're at a 3 Hat restaurant, paying the sort of prices you do at such... More

Have been looking forward to eating at Sepia since moving to Sydney (nine months) and, whilst we've eaten at some wonderful restaurants and had our expectations raised, Sepia didn't disappoint. I liked the decor and feel of the place. Dark and broody, comfortable and with a good atmosphere. Service was excellent. This was partly achieved by seemingly having an army... More

Wow words are hard to describe how good Sepia is, it is the first time I had dined at a 3 hatted restaurant so my expectations were high and they were exceeded, I had the degustation menu and every dish was well presented and explained, they had a combination of flavours to die for. If I had to find fault... More

Made a booking a few months in advance and dined here on a Saturday night with my boyfriend. We were both wowed by the food and the service. I only eat white meat but we really wanted to go here so my boyfriend informed them at the time of booking and they were very accommodating with my degustation menu! We... More

From walking thorough the door to leaving the service was impeccable. Magnificent food beautifully presented, the wines were inspirationally matched to every course. Would definitely visit again.

We were in Sydney for two weeks and were keen to try out a few of the top 10 restaurants there. Sepia was the first top 10 restaurant that we visited in Sydney. We had our 9 yrs old son with us. Since their Tasting Menu is designed to serve the whole table, our son had to take the Tasting... More

Highly recommended, we did the degustation menu for over $200 per person and every dish was delicate and cooked with heart. Loved the signature black forest dish. Would I come back for it again? YES.

I took my boyfriend here in august 2013 for his birthday, and it was divine. Nothing to complain about. Service was amazing and food was on par with the amazing service. Not one fault. We went back this year, celebrating my 21st, remembering how amazing it was last year for my boyfriend's birthday. Unfortunately this year things have dropped. About... More

I had a birthday meal with my best friend at Sepia last Saturday. I went in with high expectations, my anticipation cemented by the recent 'restaurant of the year" award. Now, reading other negative reviews, I can say with certainty that I didn't imagine what I felt. Terrible service, turning frostier with each refusal of expensive extras or drinks. A... More

From the minute we entered the door, the service was impeccable without being over the top. The food was divine, every course magnificent. The cocktails can be a bit more generous though! At the price, one expects a decent glass full!!
