This is not hot and fashionable but you know it is always going to be wonderful. Only real problem is location; it is not in the heart of the Neutral Bay enclave and sometimes parking can be difficult but the effort is worth it.

A very pleasant restaurant with over attentive service - but in a kind and friendly way - just too many wine glass refills that interrupts a chat over dinner. A different menu that is hard to absorb as it is on a blackboard along the passage, however the food is very good. Printed menus would be helpful. Prices are at... More

We used to be regulars at this restaurant but haven't been in a while, not because it wasn't always very good but because a few new restaurants have opened a bit closer to home and we've got a bit lazy. However we went back to Restaurant 16 on Saturday night and it was even better than I remember. The service... More

Well I felt like Italian last night and wanted to take my wife out on a date. The two usual Italian restaurants in Mosman were either closed or we had been there last week so I read some reviews on Trip advisor and found Restaurant 16. What intrigued me was that there was a Japanese Chef running this Italian restaurant.... More

Restaurant 16 serves modern Italian food with an innovative Japanese twist. I have now dined here twice and thoroughly enjoyed both meals. The meatballs are delicious on the entree menu, I have also tried the salt and pepper squid which could have done with more seasoning and a little less time in the deep fryer. Overall a great experience, give... More

I have walked past this place many times and not really thought much as it looked so nondescript - was I wrong, the food is terrific, all seems to be blackboard specials and of high quality. Nice wine list too though we byo the wine..

This is a real find. Restaurant 16 serves outstanding food, from starters to desserts. The friendly waitstaff are exceptionally good, keeping a close eye on wine glasses, water glasses, and plates. It was hard for me to choose from the mouth-watering menu, and I intend to go back soon to try the other dishes.

Great Atmosphere and very friendly staff. All food are freshly made and dessert are divine. Ask them and they may have a secret menu on the day.

We needed to take professional colleagues and needed certainty that the restaurant would deliver - that meant one we knew rather than taking a punt on a new and untried. Have been many times but the food and service just get better - I chose an old reliable dish, the rare Duck which was superb but was stunned to see... More

First of all I have to rave about the service here. I have been here so many times and the level of good service has never faltered. They are friendly without being intrusive. There were 5 of us last night. I recommended the scampi linguini so 4 out of 5 of us had it. My friends were so happy with... More
