From the minute that we walked through the doors, I could tell that it would be a good experience. The service was outstanding, highly attentive without being intrusive. The dessert is a definite must and I would gladly recommend the chocolate and raspberry.

A perfect place for a celebration. Had steak which was wonderful - perfectly cooked and matched to lovely veges. The dessert was to die for - a special toffee soufflé which really hit the spot. Fantastic wine list, great service. The whole package! For a treat, I'd highly recommend Glass.

My husband and I went to Sydney for his birthday. We went to the restaurant on a Friday night as we couldn't get a booking for Saturday night. We had a wonderful experience with fabulous food and very good attentive service. From the moment we arrived for a drink we were welcomed and then we went through for dinner and... More

I hadn't heard too much about Glass so I didn't expect to have enjoyed it as much as I did. I came here on my birthday and really really loved it. The service was great and the food was even better. The steak tartare is a must!

The first impression of the service wasn't good to begin with. When we called up to make a reservation they seemed to be too busy and didn't care too much about taking our reservation details. In fact, when we arrived they couldn't even find our reservation name until we realised they got our name completely wrong. However, aside from that,... More

I confess, I choose to lunch here at least once a fortnight with a friend. we usually average about $220 for two. I understand they have a set menu but haven't tried that yet. I usually opt for the kingfish creviche as entree with the fish for two as main. Their seafood is amazing. Decent portions given the fine dining... More

I've been around, this is the best restaurant I've been to, the best food I've eaten, best service I've had. I had the snapper in the Thai style broth, which is poured into the bowl at your table, meaning the snapper is still crispy. The accompanying prawns are two of the best I've eaten. The birthday girl had the wild... More

We've dined here twice in the past year and both times the food was fantastic. This is why, whilst holidaying in QLD now have we booked in the Salt Grill for this Saturday. Really looking forward to it.

I got the impression that this was a wine bar and although the location and setting and ambiance was great I thought the selection and pricing of wines was average. There was no tasting opportunity, some varieties of wine were only available as bottle only and the pricing was a bit steep. An example was cloudy bay marlbough nz, a... More
