Description: Wolfies invites you to dine on a wide array of Australia's famous prime grain fed beef and local seafood prepared in our Chargrill kitchen. Our Executive Chef's philosophy is quite simply to produce the most premium quality beef and to lightly season and char grill it to the customers specification whilst allowing true flavour and texture to be appreciated.A favourite with tourists, Wolfies has a vibrant yet relaxed atmosphere. Great food, superb wine and friendly staff combined with views over the iconic Sydney Harbour and Opera House, makes for a perfect experience for anyone at any time of year

“revisted - and still great”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We had a fabulous long, long lunch here in 2005, so came back this Sydney trip hoping to repeat - we were not disappointed. Terrific spot, good food, cold beer, good wine selection, excellent value - but the standout was the service. Our waitperson was Dave, who apparently was a fairly new addition - he anticipated our every wish - so as we were about to ask, the glass, the beer, the menu et cetera, magically appeared. another very pleasant and relaxed afternoon - thank you!

We had great steaks with view on the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. The meat was tender and the view stunning.

“Poor service, poor attention to detail”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

My family arrived mid afternoon on a Sunday for lunch. The restaurant was not busy but might have well have been. Our starters came quickly but we waited close to an hour for our main course with no apology. The food was only tepid when it arrived and very disappointing. The bill was also inaccurate. This restaurant should has been far better when he have been before but we won't return. A friend was considering a birthday lunch here but I will strongly advise against it now. Poor show...

“Never coming back.”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The place seemed lovely and started out a nice night but unfortunately turned into a horrible night. The food came out very fast which was nice however when we got our mains neither me or my partner got what we ordered. Both our meals were overcooked and when this was mentioned to the waiter he became very rude telling us that "that looks fine to me" we didn't ask for the meal to be taken back or cause any fuss we only brought it up to help with future customers and were treated very poorly. We were asked how the meal was and were not treated very well when answered honestly. As a Sydneysider it makes me upset to see a place with little to no customer service around in one of our largest tourist areas. Only plus. The view.

We take this breech very seriously and will be taking action immediately to correct the situation to ensure that the standard of service provided by our staff meets our strict requirements. More specific details in regards to the specific staff member would assist me further in this matter.
