Had the four course meal. All courses full of flavour and beautifully presented. Small portions but enough to satisfy and be able to fit in the next course. The sourdough bread was divine - crunchy crust and super soft. Alcohol was a little expensive. Service was attentive, efficient and friendly but the dish descriptions were a little rushed - staff...

Excellent degustation meal from amuse bouche through to petit fours. Yes, it is expensive but is in line with Michelin prices in UK and in my opinion is worth every penny. Service style is more professional and slick than we have had in rest of Australia so are wondering if this is why some other reviews think staff are arrogant?... More

This restaurant is all about the food and the view - both compliment each other and it is difficult to do much better in Sydney. We were seated in the turret for a special occasion in a group of 32, the weather and view are perfect, the food was amazing. I am not going into detail of every appetiser, main... More

Dined here during an epic rain storm in Sydney. Still, the view was amazing. Watching curtains of rain and lightning grazing across the sky with the opera house as your backdrop, epic. Food: having eaten in some of the worlds best restaurants, I would say this is not one of the best I had. The Asian fusion thing is good... More

We went for a Sunday lunch. We decided on the 4 courses for $160 each. The standout was the bread which is offered complimentary. I had a couple of slices and it was delicious. Full of flavour. My first course was the chicken and abalone. Nice flavour. Tender chicken. Next came the Lobster with the sea urchin and salted egg... More

What an absolute treat! Everything about Quay is a feast...the location - perched between the Opera house and the Harbour bridge the view is incredible. The staff are charming and helpful. The food ....is to die for! Save up and make this your next special night out but book months in advance so as to not miss out!

Whilst you have no clue what the luxurious items on the tasting menu or from, the blend of all of them together are truly amazing! This is quite a pricey meal, but it definitely delivers in terms of service and taste! I had pre-booked 6 months in advance for my boyfriends birthday, and when we had arrived we were promptly...

This is one of the best dining experiences I've ever had! For starters I had the smoked chicken and abalone, which was delicate and the smoked eel jelly was incredible. I then had the lobster with egg yolk emulsion. Unfortunately I had to send this dish back as the lobster was more than under cooked. It was transparent! The waitress... More

We made our reservation 6 mths in advance & it was worth it! Last year we celebrated our anniversary at Attica this year at Quay, we were seated inside the top round with views of both bridge & opera house, unlike other reviews I found the staff to be very friendly and informative, we did the tasting 8 course menu...

We went to Quay for my bday and what a great night. Food was delicious though pricey. View was awesome. We were seated looking out directly at the bridge! Had the snow egg for dessert, the one featured on the "Masterchef" Tv show. Lots of people dine but I think there should be more wait staff as at times we... More
