Myself & 4 others went into meat and wine co as it was my friends birthday, we had lunch elsewhere and thought we would have dinner at meat and wine co. when we walked in one waiter behind reception stated when asking for a table ( there were many free tables) "you've left it a bit late haven't you." Then seated us. Amazing & offended at the remark we decided not to stay & eat at hurricanes. When we left we told the waiter/host we were leaving & why & his response was "ok then no problems goodbye." 3 of the other parties I was with are licensees of bars & would like to make this lack of service to be made common knowledge.

Dishes there are way too pricy and there is a lot of philosophy over the wine list. A lot of steak houses are raising in the area that offer the same quality standard for a better price. It was a good experience but there are at least 2 restaurants nearby ( darling harbour) that offers a great quality service and flavour for less

Ate here with some friends. Hadn't booked so was pleased to get a table out front. We ordered steak each and it was really nice...cooked well and decent portions. Our friends are actually vegetarian but dont let the name of the restaurant put you off, they found a great choice of food they could have...

Waiting staff are a little pretentious but just take this with a pinch of salt. Its worth it for the food.

Oh, and a great spot to people-watch!

Went there for work Chrismas dinner. Drank, ate, talked, left, the usual stuff, not as good as I had expected.
They wouldn't let us put the drinks onto the bill while we were not sitted, have to pay upfront until we sit down, that made it really hard for us, as we all have to pay first then claim it back from work instead one bill paid by our accounts person :-< Very noisy place.

Had two meals here and both times the food and service was extremely good. Steaks in particular offer a good range and what you order is what you get!
