“great time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

recently had friends visiting from Sydney, they were in awe of the size of the portions and freshness of the seafood, really happy having a window seat looking out at the harbor.
staff were excellent, not pushy or obtrusive, when they bought a wrong wine it was no trouble bringing what was originally ordered.
would most definitely go back again, prices were fair for what we ordered.

The Harbourfront is a special place to enjoy a great meal in Wollongong. The food is excellent, the service is friendly and knowledgeable and the view of the harbour adds to the overall pleasure of dining.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

This restaurant needs to be on any food lovers list to visit, my wife and I enjoyed a delouses anniversary dinner here on Saturday night. The food was excellent, we had the hot and cold seafood platter and I can say that in all my time I have never had a better palter, the lobster was "Fresh" not frozen like most restaurants would do. The service was impeccable our waiter did an outstanding job of ensuring we had a great evening and experiences.

From the time we arrived till we left it was an absolute pleasure to be there, we were seated on he 1st floor at a window table and the view was perfect.

All staff chefs and waiters need to take a bow, this is how a restaurant should be run, you could teach a lot of other places how to do it right. We will most defiantly be back, thank you.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

Was looking forward to our lunch here as we missed it last time we came over from Scotland to visit our daughter. Service poor and inattentive. Shown to a table for two and then blocked access by the waiter who started clearing the table adjacent to it while we stood and waited. Shorter of the two waiters. Only ordered a main course as lunch time and were served 37 mins after ordering! Partner left most of his risotto and I left some of mine but the female waitress did not even ask if the meal was ok or why we left so much-food ok but not that good. Empty bottles and glasses left on table throughout leaving less space than we wanted to eat.
Having eaten in many good restaurants was shocked at the lack of service and quality of food here, so would not return.
