What an amazing meal. The food was delicious and the service fantastic. The only thing that we were disappointed by was the crane blocking the view.

We arrived with very high expectations and were not disappointed the service was unlike anything we have received prior and each course was beyond expectations, I only wish we had the names of the staff so we could thank them personally there level of knowledge and ability to compliment each other was world class. Having eaten at many other 5... More

I had very high expectations of this restaurant and had heard great things. The food, location, and ambience was fantastic, and came with a very expensive price tag. With so many boxes ticked and a reputation of fine dining I expected the price tag. As for the arrogant service, this was not expected. I would like to remind the wait... More

We booked a table in this restaurant well in advance of our trip to Sydney and were really looking forward to dinner here. Unfortunately, in my opinion it has a really overblown reputation, the food was just not up to standard for a restaurant charging $20 a head let alone the $250 per person we paid.

Don't hesitate. Pick up the phone. Book a table. It is brilliant. Do it for the desserts alone. They are a revelation.

The location of this restaurant is beyond compare. The harbour, the opera house and the bridge are all right there in front of you. On a sunny day the view is perfect and we were there on a sunny day. Likewise the service, the cutlery and the bread. The reason I went there was the food. I had eater here... More

Desserts were amazing, but that's it. The steak was a joke - I've had better meat on an airline. 15 for top quality gin - no problem. To pour that gin over ice and make it dirty (olive juice), add 13 more to make a 28 dollar drink (absurd). The view is great, the service is pretty good, the food... More

It took us many many months to get in after making our reservation and it was years in the waiting. having dined at Momofuku Seiobo in June, we were looking forward to having our own opinion about No.1 & 2 - as rated by the "experts". I had watched all of the youtube videos and could not wait for the... More

Went there as a table of 4. As a sharing type of family, we ordered every dish on the a la carte menu, and shared it, so we got to tried everything. Ok so the snow egg was interesting, and the chocolate ethereal was as rich as it looked on MC, but that's about it. The rest of the food... More
