I really like the idea of "just sit down and we will bring you nice food". No Menus is great, they simply ask what you don't/can't eat and away we go. The reason I gave it 4 out of 5 was because of the venue. Its small with an outhouse restroom that's on uneven ground and we sat next to... More

Was a little put off at first to be in such a tight space with tables so close but should not have worried - the acoustics were perfect. Each course was a surprised delight of delicious morsels. Cannot wait to go again. Had such a memorable time.

Wonderful in every way - service, food, quality, presentation. Slightly less innovative than say Sixpenny but no less enjoyable. No problems with Lynn's wheat and dairy allergies - she didn't miss out on anything. The wait teamis excellent - very personable, professional with a great knowledge of all the dishes. Food full of flavour and texture. The only downside is... More

Delicious eight course (and more) meal with distinctive matched wines. Restaurant was full on a Wednesday night and had a vibrant atmosphere. Service was very good and particularly the sommelier seemed very passionate about the wines he was serving. Of course it isn't cheap, but I consider it to be fairly good value relative to similar meals at other restaurants.... More

Quite possible one of the best kept secrets in Sydney. If you have not had an opportunity to sample the delectable dishes on offer, make yourself a reservation immediately!!! From the venue to the staff and not to mention the food, this restaurant cannot be faulted. $100 for an 8 course degustation menu that will leave you wishing it was... More

My wife and I ate at Oscillate Wildly last night (Friday 14th March) the food was, in a word, tasty! 8 courses of well thought out and perfectly executed loveliness. From the Spanish ham on rice crisp to the petit fours at the end. This is a welcome addition to the Sydney food scene and if you love your food... More

We keep going back. This place is amazing!!! I would strongly recommend the degustation which is an experience not like any other. It is expensive but compared to many others well worth the money. We will return for our birthdays and other special occasions. The desserts are fantastic. The wait staff are amazing very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu.... More

Just finished dinner with my far better half and cannot fault the place. 7 courses plus a couple of cheeky thrown in amuse Bouche type things was the perfect amount of food. The matching wines were a hit with both of us and the service was friendly and not pretentious. Great music selections (tastefully in the background) added to the... More

Has been one of Sydney's more interesting and innovative restaurants for years - the breeding ground of several of our top young chefs of the year. There are some times and places when you feel that you could not do one more degustation but at Oscillate Wildly, this is the better option for diversity and interest.

Not quite as innovative or "quirky" as I remember from our first visit a few years ago, but can't fault the quality of every course - delicious. And a great selection of accompanying wines to match each course. We will be back.
