A Special Place

I am hesitant about reccomending this restaurant, I want to be sure that it does not become too popular making it difficult to get a reservation. This must be one of the three best restaurants in the mountains if not the best. The service, ambience, decor make you feel so welcome and then you... read more

After much anticipation, our visit to Nineteen23 was a wonderful way to celebrate our engagement thanks to the impeccable service and hospitality of the restaurant and kitchen staff, who made us feel welcome and had a great passion for the location and food. The restaurant is nestled in historic Silvermere house with a nice view and garden, and it was... More

Best food I've had in a very long time! Only quibble would be that the entree's were a tad small, however mains and dessert spot on in size. I had the sashimi entrée and it was to die for, the snapper done Asian style is excellent as is the pork loin. The service is also excellent, although it does lean... More

As someone who lives in the Blue Mountains, I am often asked for recommendations for local restaurants – now I have one. Nineteen23 boasts excellent chefs producing lovely food. The Art Deco decor and feel were perfect. The food was excellent and reflected the aim of creating a “fine dining experience, without the Sydney price tag”. Staff were all exceptionally... More

The first impressions of this place are of the immaculate gardens and the quiet grace of the interiors. Meals are served in different areas such as a shady verandah, a private room or a larger dining room. All are quiet and beautifully furnished. The service is professional, unobtrusive and friendly. The food is a dream and there is a brilliant... More

We were looking for a fine meal in the area and our AirBnB hosts recommended 1923. The service and food was the best we've had since arriving in Australia and we've been in Sydney for the past 4 weeks. We arrived for the first seating and got impeccable service. As a couple you would hope so, but with two small... More

The kitchen excelled. The pairing of food & wine was excellent. The amazing array of flavours produced delight at our table. Our wait staff was young, new, & hesitant. A tad stingy with bread. The Dinning room manager avoided us and was not overly pleased when we requested after dinner drinks on the balcony.

I was super excited to go to this place because of its rave reviews. The setting is absolutely beautiful, the views breath taking and the staff very professional. The food is good, a little arty and small, but definitely tasty. However it is not the flavour sensation I expected. Also one of out mains was wrong when it came out,... More
