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

Had a truly great meal with clients here while visiting Sydney. Restaurant is built in an old bank, and the atmosphere was awesome. Prawns to kick off the meal, some nice filet and sides, closed off with a nice dessert. Would have given it the full 5 star rating, but was a little lacking in service. Hostess kept telling is...

I thought that I should experience the 'great steak' that reviews promised so I took the chance of an evening free of work and a nearby hotel to give the Wagyu a try. The rest of the meal was fine, the Kingfish was pleasant and the wines good and the sommelier helpful. The steak was tender although, for me, it... More

Neil Perry is a fantastic Chef. His cooking is rich and with a lot of creativity. The restaurant is very nice and modern.

Found this by accident, it looked busy but we thought we'd try for a table. There was a table free on the balcony, which is quieter so suited us better anyway. Put simply the food was delicious (we both had steak) the wine perfect, & the service impressive.

The food was amazing. Wine selection was even better. I'm not going to lie, it is pricey, but worth every damn cent! The bar staff are very friendly, helpful and gifted at what they do. The sommeliers really know their stuff and are very eager to give you what you are truly looking for, especially Richard. That guy hit the... More
