Rockpool was recommended to us by a friend who lived in the city. We tried calling for reservations but the dining area was booked so we decided to stop by and grab food and cocktails in the bar/lounge area. The staff were less than pleasant, in no hurry to try and 'serve' and while the wine and cocktail menu is... More

We went to Rockpool for a casual mid week birthday lunch for a friend as we all work close to the restaurant in the City. Lovely bar setting. We made arrangements to have lunch at 12 noon before it gets too busy and were seated in slightly sectioned off area. Service was attentive and efficient. I had the Full Blood... More

This is a grand restaurant with high ceilings and large columns in its main dining hall. We were given a private dining room on the upper level which was really quite special. Prior to dinner we had a few drinks in their bar which was filled with Friday evening revellers who were mostly men and women in business attire. Good... More

I have gone to Rockpool bar and grill a few times and it is a great place to meet family and friends. The Chefs are Neil Perry and Khan Danis.Yes, it's breathtaking. Combining Citizen Kane-like scope with detail-work befitting Mad Men, it's probably safe to say the Rockpool Bar & Grill is the grandest restaurant Sydney - and by extension... More

I have been to this restaurant on work and with my family and rate the restaurant to be great for both. The food is fabulous and fresh. Even simple sides like your buttered carrots and mashed peas with an egg are exceptionally good. If you select some dishes their is a bit of a wait and you are forewarned by... More

For a place that prides itself on it's food and service, it lived up to those expectations but they are perhaps a bit too proud of it. My wife and I ate here for our first dinner on our honeymoon in Sydney and it was overall a good evening. The wait staff was attentive and helped out with suggestions and... More

I have gone to Rockpool bar and grill a few times and can't say enough good things about it. The steak was amazing and cooked perfectly. Have tried most of the sides and my favourite is still the mac and cheese. It is a rich meal so probably best to share a bunch of dishes. I have also gone for... More

Admittedly we only had one starter and two steaks, so did not see the range of cooking skills that may be here. Tuna tartar was OK but not one to write home about. The steaks were cooked to order and the accompaniments of fries, mac and cheese and a salad were also OK. The wine list is so long (over... More

We went there for our anniversary and it did not disappoint. We had 3 courses and they were all really good. The beef (wagyu and grass fed aussie) was perfectly prepared and very tender although a bit expensive. The side dishes (potatoes roasted in lard, mac 'n' cheese (!!) and chipotle creamed corn) were all perfectly delicious and probably the... More
