Went here with my wife for her 30th birthday. Booked a few months before and requested a nice window seat as we were coming from interstate and the table we got could not of been any better. We had the 8 course tasting menu with classic wine match and wow the dishes were amazing not only in presentation but also... More

Shown to a table on the top floor with a superb night-time view of the Opera House my breath was taken away before the food even arrived. We went for the tasting menu and I thoroughly enjoyed each and every dish. My companion was not very impressed with one or two of the dishes but overall we both agreed that... More

We dined here on our last night at Sydney for our Australia honeymoon. Positives: * Snow egg kicks butt. Angus beef was good. * Views are hard to beat * Friendly servers (not snooty) Negatives Service below expectations for a top notch restaurant and paying so much money. * Not very attentive. The wait is very long for the final... More

We went to this restaurant on our last night in Sydney and left with wonderful memories. It was located on the harbor with perfect views of the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge lit up against a clear night sky. We had arrived early and started out with drinks at the bar. From the moment we arrived, to the moment... More

We celebrated my daughter's graduation dinner here a few weeks ago with my Sydney relatives and we were not disappointed. The menu was unique and we liked the four course menu as we could select the dish we like,unlike the other menu where everyone in the party had to agree to all the courses in the menu. We chose the... More

At the risk of sounding pretentious, Heston Blumenthal made this review difficult. At last year's Margaret River Gourmet Escape he spoke about how a top class restaurant experience is, or should be, much more than just the meal itself. That the experience should start with the booking, and build up from there. And so it was with our visit to... More

Our 39th wedding anniversary deserves a special place to celebrate. We were not disappointed. Venue was special and service was excellent. We had the Tasting Menu with matched wines. In one word "superb". Stand outs - Congee Mud Crab and (of course) the Snow Egg. Not cheap but price isn't why we came here. Do yourself a favour, if you... More

Some of the waitresses, one older lady in particular with short hair was terribly stuck and snobby. Don't need that when your paying $100 just for starters

What can I say. My birthday celebration was just 5 star. My guest just keep talking about the evening. The food, wine, view and not to mention the view have made my special event one to treasure for years to come! Well done Quay! You are on par to many great restaurants in the world.
