My husband and I ate here recently. We'd booked a table and when we arrived just before 8.30 it wasn't ready, however we were offered a table outside which we took and I was glad as it was really noisy and busy inside - which is part of the feel however I really liked being outside and people-watching near the Ivy.
Our waiter was very attentive - not arrogant as some have commented about the waitstaff - and helpful. The menu was adequate though not extensive. I had gnocchi for entree and my husband had the mussels, both of which were delicious, and the mussels were a good size portion. For main my husband had beef and I had a mixed plate of duck confit, pork belly, saucisson and beans which sounds odd but was a really nice mix of flavours. No room for dessert. We had a beautiful French Pinot Gris with the meal
I think it was a lovely meal - not outstanding but the overall experience was very good. It's pricey but that's Sydney for you.
