Ate here with some trepidation after reading some very negative reviews. We had a very pleasant evening here. Excellent service, great space and for the people that complained about the bathroom facilities quite frankly - get a life! OK they are not in the restaurant but the passage to them is not hideous and the facilities themselves are perfectly fine.... More

I found this to be one of the best degustation dinners in Sydney. It is good value, the staff are friendly and very accommodating, and of course the food is delicious.

Overall our meal was good, although we did not think it was at the standard of other hatted restaurants that we had been to. Firstly most meals were very plain (especially the poached squid and julienne of carrot dish) and although 'nice' most were nothing to write home about - the best being the whitebait consommé dish and sushi style...

This isn't as well known as some of Sydney's other hatted restaurants, but it is certainly one of the better ones. The degustation is definitely something to try here - 13 courses, my favourite being the duck with black truffle. The service here is good as well - helpful but not overbearing. It is rather pricey, but it is for... More

Decided to take my partner on a date for his birthday and I must say that we were very amazed by the level of service and how beautiful the atmosphere was. We very much enjoyed our degustation course and their wine menu. The staff are very professional and helpful. Sepia Restaurant is easily the best fine dine restaurant we have... More

The quality of the food, the inventiveness of the dishes, the combination of flavours and textures - all contributes to a top quality dining experience. Martin Benn's skill as one of Australia's top chefs is undeniable. The home made chevre, rhubarb, beetroot, and rye is absolutely stunning; the sashimi of yellow fin tuna, with jamon cream, apple and wasabi and... More

Went to sepia with my fiancée, was a very last minute decision , and opted for the degustation menu. The food is fantastic, every dish is mind blowing and the service is true old school fine dining, faultless.The chocolate forest dessert left me speechless, best finish I had in my life! Cocktails could come out a bit quicker. Thank you... More

The most we ever spent on one meal, with absolutely no regrets. Our dining experience lasted four hours, within which time my partner and I went through a whole spectrum of physical feelings and emotions: starving and excited to start, indulged and satiated, then incredibly full and exhausted! The timing between courses, however, allowed us to recuperate and become hungry... More
