“Best restaurant in sydney”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

This is the best ever service i have had in my life, the plates come all together so everyone gets served together. The place is like being in new york. They also give you complimentary chocolates before you leave. The food is to die for better than quay by fare they should be awarded the top 10 restaurants in the world. Please give it a go you will not be disappointed.

“Chic ambiance, excellent food”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Great bar downstairs, very chic restaurant upstairs. Excellent food, fantastic service. Well worth the money. Avoid the venison (I've had better in AU/NZ).

“best we found in three weeks in Australia”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

This was easily the best dining we found in over three weeks in Australia . The staff were excellent both friendly and approachable. The room was elegant and interesting without being pretentious. The food was really very good , first rate produce, well cooked with real finesse , great presentation and full of flavour . The passion fruit soufflé was the best soufflé that I have ever eaten.

“Nice food - great wines and brilliant service”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Dinner on a Saturday night in the private room for 14 guests. Service is exceptional and very professional. Attentive yet not overbearing and a great night was had by all. All drinks were outstanding and the food was good (at $140 per head + drinks). This is a place to be experienced at least once.
