Excellent service and perfect timing, the food was ok but far too tasteless, except the first dish with beets that was unbelievable good. snow egg was disappointing as it was quite tasteless. After all the impressions I'm pretty disappointed with the food, I was expecting much more. Overrated. I was also visited and Matt Moran's ARIA on a three-course lunch... More

We loved our dinner at Quay…. the food is just amazing and overall was a wonderful experience. The snow egg is fabulous and I'm glad I have finally tried it after hearing so much about it. Unfortunately, I felt that the food and wine is extremely overpriced. You are really paying for the experience, wonderful service and the gorgeous location... More

A wonderful experience. Food was incredible and the service was perfect! We had the tasting menu with classic wine and it was all beautiful. The service was perfectly timed and the view was an added bonus to a fantastic meal.

While the food was delicious the portions are small given the prices. Some waitstaff are warm and friendly while others appear irritated, scripted and just getting through the meal for a tip. There are plenty of fine dining establishments in Sydney which offer genuinely friendly service as well as amazing food.

My husband has been dying to have a Snow Egg ever since he saw it on Masterchef Australia. In July we visited Sydney and was staying in the Rocks. We thought it was a good ooportunity to go. We were unable to get a booking in the evening, as they are booked out for about 8 months ahead, but they... More

Booked months in advance. Our table felt as though it was suspended midway between the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. The food was excellent, a tasting menu with matched wines. The staff were helpful and attentive. The presentation of the food was superb and other than one course being a little bland, very tasty. Of course, at the price... More

Having eaten here many times over the years we decided to hold my husbands 50th birthday at Quay. We chose their private room in the upper tower and had 28 of our closest friends and family. As always the food was outstanding, such creativity and innovation and none of this diminished with a large group. The service we had was... More

went to quay for a birthday dinner, food didn't taste of anything apart from a slightly salty flavour, very over priced and pretensions even the bread was bitter don't go here-its like the emperors new clothes-everyone just follows the crowd save you money

My first Quay experience was years ago on a wedding reception. It was fabulous, and I had the most amazing baked potatos in my life! Families and friends keep on giving me raving reviews of the restaurant along the years so I think it's time for a proper visit. By this stage, we have already dined at Vue du Monde,... More
