A drink after work

We stopped here for a drink after work since we were staying in the hotel. A good atmosphere, but nothing special.

The best meal I had was a roast chicken dinner. Several other dinners were disappointing. Stick with simple and a I guess it is ok but why bother ... for $30 they should be able to roast some chicken!!!

Had a great meal here and a couple of cocktails. Seriously really good food and drinks and the staff and customers were all having a great time which added the the already cool atmosphere. Loved the pickled green beans

Ate here one night and was very impressed with the food and service. Staff very nice and helpful, was able to get exactly what I wanted with no fuss. I did request a bit of a change to a menu item and it was no fuss service - definitely can do.

Ate here twice in a week with a restaurant.com deal..within the Hilton on o'farrell. Comfy booths make a formal setting slightly less so..makes for a very relaxing time. Staff work hard to see you well. The food was tasty and a little different... Germany sausage and pretzel was great. .my mate loved the rose' sparkling wine. This place is pricey... More

I hate to give such a negative review but this place is really quite bad and is inside the Hilton Hotel-which can do better. We ate lunch here and will never come back and I urge others to look somewhere else. I ordered a vegi wrap that was advertised as containing humus, quinoa, corn, lettuce and other vegis. It came...

I ate dinner here and it was good, service was very good. Restaurant was not super busy at the time. Another day I met friends in the bar and it was a challenge to get service or food as there was only one overworked person. Once it arrived it was very good.

Incredibly slow service. We were there at about 1pm so the lunch "rush" was over. There weren't that many customers there when we arrived. Still, it must have taken at least 10 mins to have anyone approach to take drink orders, and another 20 to get draft beer. Overpriced for what you get. It seems as if they take advantage... More

Hotel restaurant, expensive but had good options. Convenient if staying in the Hilton. Wouldn't go out of my way to go there if I was staying elsewhere. Wait staff was friendly.

We were staying at the Hilton, so ate breakfast here every day. That was decidedly average, especially for someone who isn't really into sweet stuff (of which there was a relatively large range). The eggs, bacon, sausages, cheese etc in the buffet were pretty tasteless because, in my opinion, they were probably very cheaply sourced. However, we did have lunch... More
