Nice restaurant

Nice decor and vibe. Good service. Good food but not outstanding for the price paid. The Alaskan king crab entrée I had was quite salty. Abalone pasta unusual and pretty tasty

This is a fabulous restaurant and although pricey, it is well worth it for the all round dining experience. The food is incredible and the service exceptional. The wine list is huge. It is located in a stunning building and I would recommend requesting to be seated near the kitchen...the chefs are great to watch.

Rockpool bar and grill provides delicious (probably not healthy) steaks and has an unbeatable range of sides and desserts. Great place for business lunch or dinner or for a great night out with family or friends. Highly recommended.

This was a private celebration dinner, my youngest son turning twenty-one and as he and his girl friend are avid carnivores this was an appropriate choice. I have been four or five times previously and we were not... More
