We came here for my husband's birthday and we had high expectations of the experience after reading the many flawless reviews. The night started off fantastic with two amazing entrees. We had the steamed pippi's and sautéed prawns. Both were delicious and flavoursome. We both ordered a steak each for mains as we thought that this would be star of... More

Would recommend the Wagyu Chuck, and the bartenders make a mean Gin & Tonic! Definitely a must if visiting Sydney!

I was very impressed by this restaurant. They treat steaks like good wines, and could tell me exactly where the animals where raised, how old they were when they were slaughtered, what kind of food they got and how long the meat had matured before it was served. That is rare. When I noticed how the waitress tasted my wine... More

It's a very nice restaurant. Staff are kind and efficient. Menu is very rich pasta meat and seafood. We tried past and as italians we can say that was very good. Than we ordered fillet and the taste was wonderful. Also the dessert was great. Quite expensive but it's the quality of he food.

We went here for a celebratory dinner. Our table was running a little late and we were taken to the bar for a drink while we waited. Once our table was ready, we were sat and given a complimentary slider which was delicious. The menu was ranging, the wine list 150 plus pages. Entrees were delicious - not the greatest... More

Its hard to get a table at this restaurant on a weekend due to its popularity. Set in an old bank building with an interior of high ceilings and marble pillars, the restaurant has a atmosphere of class. The food was excellent and the staff attending table were well across the menu and educated on the wine list. Yes it... More

We've been to lots of the so-called best steakhouses but this one was our favourite. Right from the start with the excellent ambiance, it was an amazing evening. We arrived drenched to the skin from our walk uphill in a downpour from the Radisson Blu (way too windy for our umbrella) and were warmly welcomed. We had one of the... More

Lovely restaurant to visit as an occasion but I thought the food was okay/average. Service was slow overall and I did not think the evening was good value for money. Had a nice time, just not sure I would rush back.
