Has improved beyond words.

Worst thing is having to order and pay for food and drinks separately. Best thing, everything else and the setting. The food is particularly good, just the right size portions and very tasty. Service with a smile and quick as in the evening the play is the thing. No need for reservations pre... read more

We used to go to the old Wharf Theatre restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed it, they have changed the restaurant now and have no bookings and no table service. We got there early, so did not have to queue up to get a table, but people arriving after us did. We did have to queue for drinks, it was a long... More

Food selection was poor. No service, no flavor! Lining up for drinks and food for a long time. Will not go back. Over priced.

I remember this venue as a restaurant. I was surprised to find that it is now a more casual, artsy bar, with what is essentially a tapas style menu. One orders at the bar. I found the staff friendly and helpful. I found it difficult to select a tasty healthy, or gluten free option. The food was fine, but not... More

We have been patrons of the STC since the beginning. Having experienced the evolution of the Wharf Theatre over many of those years, we were always hoping a 1st class eaterie would follow. Sadly, it never has... many caterers have come and gone and the latest brings no joy. The view of course remains stunning, the space is open and... More

Expecting to enjoy a nice dinner before our Friday night show we were disappointed with the size and quality of our choices. Surveying the menu which appeared to be mainly tapas dishes we decided to pay a bit more and order two of the more expensive meals off the Blackboard Menu. At $25.00 I received a piece of fish the...

This is a very good restaurant, creative food and presentation at a reasonable price, considering the location, great friendly service by professional servers, I will be back to this place any day, a great place to take visitors and business friends visiting Sydney.

My partner & I visited the Wharf restaurant for a Saturday lunch, using a discount deal we bought online. We noticed a number of other tables were using the same offer. The restaurant in no way discriminated against you for using this deal--we had a table in a pick position, and were able to order off the main menu. Our... More
