Food was delicious and arrived quickly. Lovely view over Darling Harbour. Unfortunately the service was not great and detracted from our evening. We were completely ignored on arrival by the hostess despite standing right in front of her, our waitress introduced herself and then we...didn’t see her again, no offer of pre-dinner drinks or a drink order at all and the same rude hostess taking our payment without asking how our meal had been or wishing us a good night. Restaurant wasn’t overly busy on a Sunday night so unsure why we received such underwhelming service but it means we probably won’t return.More

Food incredible. Can recommend the salt and pepper squid, beef tenderloin and Eton mess!! Great views!!!! You can see the fireworks at 9pm on Saturday. Great drink selection We had booked a table well in advance and had staff confirm our booking an hour prior...to arriving. Extremely disappointed when the couple ahead of us who did not have a booking were allocated a window seat, and when we asked for one we were told no window seats were left! Why not reserve the window tables for those who have booked. It left us disappointed seeing people who hadn’t booked being allocated better tables. We were moved to a ‘better’ placed table where one of us had to sit with their back to the window. I know from friends who own restaurants that this is not the done thing. I was also still eating my meal without my knife and fork together and the waitress asked if we were finished & started clearing plates away which made us feel rushed. When paying $50-60 for a main you don’t want to feel rushed. I would return and try again only because the food was so good, but if we received the same service we would not return.More

The food was absolutely delicious we tried most of the menu over three nights for dinner and I cannot fault any of the dishes. So much flavour in all of the dishes we tasted and the portion sizes were substantial. The beef ribs was amazing...the meat fell off the bone and the chicken noodle dish was amazing and the butter chicken with the steamed rice was faultless. Will be back again,On my next visit to Sydney. I just wish that out accore hotels in Noosa offered the same delicious food.More

4 of us were treated to exceptional service , thank you Charlotte and Ella (in training). The whole experience was relaxed, professional and utterly enjoyable. The food presented was perfectly cooked and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Got to be one of the best ‘Hotel’ restaurants...in Darling Harbour area. Take the time and treat yourself.More

Believe the reviews this restaurant is five star, I ordered the Strip Loin Steak medium which came out exactly that way they provided steak knives which were not necessary the steak was so tender and well cooked you could have cut it with a plastic...knife. This is not a report from the proprietor it is a genuine report from a person who actually ate at the restaurant.More

We went as a family with three children to the Ternary to celebrate my birthday and the food was fantastic. The Ternary is my go to restaurant when I want to eat out at a great venue. All the food we had was perfect and...the service was fantastic. I don't normally write reviews but I had to do one for this restaurant and if you have not been there before, please go and give it a try. I will be going back again.More

My wife and I had an exceptional dinner sitting at the grill at Ternary. Our food was fantastic and though busy, the chef de cuisine Robin Rana was very friendly and made us feel welcome. Even the view out the windows was special. I heartily...recommend the Ternary, especially if Robin is cooking.More

Dinner at the Ternary looks effortless but there’s great attention to detail. Front of staff and kitchen form a great team that makes the dining experience professional and yet relaxed. Anthony leads an excellent kitchen turning out consistently delicious dishes. One of our favourite places...to eat.More

Mr Flower and team - wow what a wonderful experience to be back at our favourite place (restaurant in Sydney). The food as always was amazing - fresh - Devine and very very tasty. I missed my Veronica, but understood she works every day, so...you gave her a lucky night off. Next time, we might see her. Robin, our steaks were cooked to perfection, all meals were beautifully platted. Oh thank you for putting on the fireworks for my birthday, we loved them.More

This place is exceptional! The food is devine, the service is impeccable, every member of The Ternary team should be very proud of themselves! I stayed in Sydney for 3 nights and hands down this has been my favourite dining experience ever! sitting by the...grill with the most incredible chefs and wait staff making me feel like part of their family was just magical. Anthony runs Robin and the crew like a well oiled machine, as a natural people watcher this was such an exciting and fascinating dining experience, I even got fireworks on my final night (which is always a bonus!) And….I can’t forget The Ternary bar staff, thank you all so much for creating the most delicious cocktails, yip I tried them all! I’m a Perth local but I will be making regular trips just to dine at one of Sydney’s best restaurants, thank you so much for taking care of me like I was one of your own. I had an absolute blast!More

I visited this restaurant with my friends and had the most amazing time there. The food was good especially the steak. Cooked to perfection and the mushroom sauce was so good. I want to specially mention Sushmitra who took such good care of us. Always...there to help and make sure that we had a good time. Would definitely recommend Ternary for any day during the week.More

Depends how fast you can walk. Don't get a taxi, as Sydney is in abit of a mess. Walk around there around 20 minutes. With our gorgeous weather take a stroll.
