Great decor and service, food a little lacking

Generally speaking a good restaurant. The atmosphere is conducive to a romantic evening - the staff made a good effort to seat my partner and I at a table with a great view of the city - and there are several that offer this vista. The staff were very professional and the service was among the... read more

Presentation of the food is great except that of the spiced quail. Taste is subpar for its price. Oysters are fresh but tiny, red roasted baby chicken is tough and tastes sort of musty. The decor however is probably the best at the Star, compared to the uncomfortable kitchen bar at Momofuku and awkward drapes at Sokyo.

Came to this restaurant for a lovely Sunday afternoon treat. There is a "Champagne Sunday Lunch" available which either consists of 3 courses and Moet or your choice of beverage. The set menu was great, with 3 or 4 choices per course. The food was fantastic, and each course was a decent portion, leaving you completely satisfied. The brioche bread... More

Came here for my girlfriends birthday and the food and service was top notch. Fantastic decor with the music and lighting making a great atmosphere, our waiter Antonio was fantastic and gave us guidance through the menu. It is definitely not cheap but dont let that stop as I can truly say it was one of the best meals I... More

Nice cosy fit out and decor, attentive staff and reasonably good food but nothing sensational . When you spend $170 for a wagyu tasting plate for 2 you would expect the meat to at least be hot and not just warm ! The meat itself was good but again nothing remarkable and very overpriced . Desserts were the deconstructed type... More

Food was great and so was the wine. Overall was great but a bit too pricey for the liking. Steak was absolutely cooked to perfection and the range of wine is outstanding.

We recently visited Black for the first time. The food, atmosphere, location, views and service were all excellent. The dimmed lighting and dark decor provide for both romance and for nice views over the water. There is plenty available on both the food and beverage menus (the latter of which is overwhelming extensive), and we received outstanding service from our... More

Firstly, went for pre-theatre, asked a waiter if he recommended three courses for the limited time we had, said yes when they should've said two as the starters and mains came at the same time and we had to eat like crazy people. Secondly, prawns were cooked well but the corn sauce didn't add much to it. Open ravioli was... More

A good choice for a relaxed Sunday lunch. This was a last minute choice after attending a commemoration service for the 100th anniversary of Anzac at my father's old church at Gordon. Although we were late arriving, they kept the bar open so that we could enjoy the special fixed menu Moet Sunday lunch. The food was excellent, full of... More
