We had dinner at this restaurant on recommendation of a friend. It was quite pricey (options ranging from $55 per person to $120+) but the experience was quite unique and interessting - definitely not your typical steak & chips type restaurant. It is not an ala carte restaurant - they have a set menu with a few options for every... More

Have the degustation menu. No. Really. Have it. Beautifully arranged dishes that sing of Australian classics. Comes close to matching some of best restaurants in the State, and exceeds most in terms of atmosphere and service.

What an amazing meal we had. The mushroom soup was incredible, the atmosphere, the food, the whole experience was incredible. The waitress Patsie was amazing too, she really knew her menu and she really helped us decide what we wanted. This place is just amazing with great food and a very intimate atmosphere. Perfect for a romantic dinner. We went... More

Beautiful ambience. The menu is a set 3 course but there's a large selection. The food is scrumptious. Great views .. what's amazing is that you can see Sydney!

We had dinner at Nineteen23. There was a degustation menu available but we went with the three course menu. There were plenty of choices for each course and the food was beautiful. One of the best meals we've had for awhile plus it was byo as well as licenced. A most enjoyable evening.

My husband and I dined here for his 30th Birthday and I wasn't disappointed. The service was perfect, attentive and friendly, the food was modern, fresh and very flavoursome. The atmosphere was cosy, comfortable and intimate. I would recommend it for special occasions. The manager was most helpful, organising for a candle to be placed in my husbands dessert, we... More

We got the alternating set menu for the group of us going out to dine one night during our Blue Mountains long weekend trip - does not disappoint! Excellent fine dining, working together simple flavours with amazing textures for a great night of food experiences. Well worth the visit and experience!

Our family had been looking forward to this degustation for ages. A lot of money was paid. The food was delicious! We expected a nice slow night, 40 minutes between mouthfuls might be ok if the maître d wouldn't mind actually doing something other than the standard degustation and wine. Requests for an extra wine or bread were rebuffed... Can... More

This fine-dining restaurant in Wentworth has a mellowness and grace that reflects its heritage. We thoroughly enjoyed our relaxed Sunday lunch there, sitting by a big sunny window overlooking beautiful views of the Grose Valley. We ate a-la-carte, and I had the red braised pork cheek terrine with Korean kimchi, followed by Duck Confit with pickled beetroot. They focus on... More
