Great Food & awesome Bar

This is a great place to eat! I am a fan of all of their locations, I am however a fan of this location due to the bar & also the layout - the super high ceiling is amazing and sitting on the second level over looking the rest of the restaurant is a wonderful experience giving a grand feeling... read more

I went there for an informal dinner out with my boss last Monday. We absolutely loved it. Everything was perfect.

Went there for celebrating a birthday. The food is good (but not exceptional), the environment is pretty (but no views/particularity to make it unique), the service is good (elegant and basic), the wine we drank was acceptable (exceptionally strong, and the choice is limited to very expensive options). Therefore, the price (high) is justified probably only by the name/fame...

I have had the pleasure of dining at Rockpool Bar and Grill a number of occasions but never reviewed previously. I thought after another excellent meal it was time to post up some thoughts. The venue is incredible being an old bank with huge ceilings and massive marble pillars, a real sense of grandeur. The service is smooth, helpful and... More

Everybody was very uptight and serious. Not my type of place to go but I was getting a free meal from some people I met so I couldn't pass it up. Recommend if you are looking for something serious and fancy

The atmosphere was electric, we could see the chefs in the kitchen, the woodfire grill was blazing. The service was impeccable from the moment we walked in. The food is delicious, I steal have dreams about the steak. Will DEFINITELY be going again

I don't understand why this restaurant is in the cheapest category here in tripadvisor because it is expensive! Steaks start at 49$ without any sides. However, the food, service and setting are perfect! If you DO want to go fairly cheap then eat at the bar side and order the wagyu burger (you can't order it at the grill side).... More

Excellent food that was well presented. Good service. The bar area is too small to cater for waiting guests even though booking confirmations indicate that you may need to wait in the bar for your table.
