The restaurant is small and cosy and the degustation menu is superb. We haven't had the matching wines but still enjoyed the dishes from first to last. Service was really good and it was very relaxing to dine there. Parking is a bit of a problem in the area but we were lucky to park right in front that night... More

Was lucky enough to have dinner here for my birthday. The 8 course degustation was great. Each course was beautifully presented. I also had the matching wines. To be honest I didn't really enjoy the wines that much. Wine is such a personal thing though. The meal can be altered for those with gluten allergy which was great. The service... More

I had unbelievably high expectations for Oscillate Wildly, and even though it was a good night out, I didn't think it was outstanding, like a fine dining restaurant should be. The food is great - the 8 course tasting menu is superb. The foie gras was delicious, as was the cod and the wagyu. And the dessert was fabulous. We... More

When you combine great food, wine and company, 3 hours will pass like a flash. The degustation menu comprises of sampling portions of the chef's creations, which is essentially fusion using fresh ingredients, with a bias towards Japanese kaiseki cuisine. A great selection of wines are available, by the glass as well. Tuesdays is byo day and you'll probably need... More

This was a lovely dining experience. A degustation menu, which is explained course by course. All delicious and beautifully presented. A small restaurant with a minimalist white surrounding all very stylish. Service was conflicting. Most were friendly and welcome another not showing much patience or respect.

The food was amazing as complimented by all the other contributors. I'm pleased to hear Tuesday is byo as that is our preferred option. When you are paying such an enormous amount for a meal, cheapest wine at $60 a bottle becomes an issue. The courses were served perfectly spaced with a description from the friendly yet professional staff. If... More
