“Spectacular Wedding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

My son and now daughter-in-law chose the Green Room at Quay restaurant for their wedding reception. The entire evening could not have been more perfect. The view was amazing with the back drop to the wedding party being Sydney Opera House with Vivid Sydney lights. The meal was amazing with each course complementing the last. The staff were exceptional! Every guest commented on how knowledgeable the staff were in regards to the food and wine served. Our table is already organizing a return to Quay, so we can experience their tasting menu. Truly THE MOST AMAZING restaurant I have eaten in. Perfect in every way.

“Modern gourmet style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Excellent for corporate entertainment, great location in the harbour overlooking the opera house. Very good and professional service. This is a modern take on many classic ingredients, done together to create special flavour experiences. Go here if you are looking for something different and a modern gourmet experience. Dont go he if you are looking for a steak and a simple bottle of red. Expensive? Yes but what restaurants of this sort isnt?

“A big tick on the bucket list.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

"Wow" An unforgetable experience. With Vivid Sydney on as well, just added to an amazing evening. We were given a "gift" voucher by my husbands daughter, what a gift. The table was booked for the day after my birthday. We chose the tasting menu, accompanied by the classic wines, what a tantalising tastebud explosion, This is a must do if you are a foodie, or even if your not. Lovely atmosphere, great view of the Opera house, wonderful company, & exquisite food.

“Can it be better than this?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We had lunch here since dinner was booked up for several days and we are glad we did, because we had plenty of time to savour the view and of course the fantastic food. The tasting menu is quite simply brilliant - every dish is as near perfection as you could wish. More important, the dishes went together so well: the sign of an imaginative chef. If you are in Sydney, you absolutley MUST go. Sitting at your table you will have an unforgettable view of the Opera House and you will eat an unforgettable meal.

“A wonderful culinary experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

This was a birthday present from my family. It achieved my expectations. Service was great, staff were knowledgable of the menu and helpful. We had the tasting menu. I had the accompanying wines ( basic level). The sommelier was knowledgable and helpful ( possibly a little attitude but that fitted in with the ambience). The food was served at a reasonable pace. We had a couple of alternates as the menu did not suit us 100% These were achieved seamlessly and the sommelier even adapted the wine for the new food. The view of course is world class. A venue such as this must have astronomical overheads and so one can accept the cost. Of course this is not an everyday eatery, but a delightful place for that special occasion or special present. I have no hesitation recommending it for that special occasion.
