Read some of the reviews before I started typing mine. All have one thing in common the food is less than average, for a such beautiful venue you would think the food will match but sadly it didn't not even close. I thought management will act and perhaps investigate in order to improve the quality of food !!! Service and... More

A highlight of my stay in Sydney and a one-off treat. A sea-plane to the restaurant and then a wonderful lunch with views of the sea below. Very professional young staff who took their jobs seriously but were very friendly with plenty of time and expertise to advise on wine and choices from the menu. The food was perfect -... More

Staid in one of their lovely guestrooms and had the dinner package on both evenings. The impeccably kept dining room overlooks dramatically Whale Beach and the Paciffic Ocean. There are four rows of tables with the last one slightly elevated and organized like private boxes - could be perfect for an intimate dinner. Linen is crisp, and ironed once set... More

Our family of 10 adults celebrated my 60th Birthday at Jonah's. Although we had planned pre dinner drinks on the terrace the wet weather meant champagne in the lounge area. The meal and service were superb! The view spectacular. We would have loved to have stayed in the boutique accommodation however it was booked out. A memorable evening for a... More

I have been numerous times over several years and to be honest I have found it overrated. BUT This was my birthday lunch, the meal was exceptional! The best I've ever had here. The duck sitting on a bed of put lentils with rillets and fig. The soufflé dessert was delicious with hints of passion fruit, accompanied with violet ice... More

A lovely night out was booked and we arrived to a fab greeting, lovely staff and excellant views over Whale Beach. Sunset was looming. Our tradition is to have a special meal in Northern Beaches before I depart back to UK. Leaving Uk family behind is always hard and this venue hit all the right buttons for our evening out... More

All I can say is don't go there. Not only did we have a terrible experience, but I was told by the general manager that we are now banned from the restaurant for suggesting I would put comments on social media about our experience. Then when I have put it on social media, they call me a liar. Wonderful customer... More

As this is 1 of 5 targeted reviews about the ‘same’ dining experience, I would like to ‘once again’ simply reiterate the facts: • There was NO booking for this table of 8 • We managed to cater for your table of 8 on a very busy Friday night at last minute • Our staff member did go over and...

I'm caught between giving 3 stars or 4. The service was brilliant, the view can't be faulted, the atmosphere was nice and the presentation of the food was delightful however the food was just so average. I really expected something amazing for the price, both my partner and I felt like the food was bland and the sauces were "meh"... More

Perhaps the only feature that can divert your attention from the stunning view at Jonah’s is the food. The multi award-winning Hatted Restaurant offers excellent Contemporary Australian cuisine and an exceptional wine list offering more than 1600 wines from around the globe.
