Pretty good experience. Good food and service. Fantastic view of harbour. Top quality restaurant but feel like it just didn't quite have that wow factor I was expecting.

The overall experience is worth every dollar and is not because of Matt Moran.

The quality and the standard of food is amazing. The service is prompt and courteous.

The presentation both food and staff is of a high standard.

The only constructive feedback I can give would be, may need to follow up on guest if they would like more drinks. My friend had a mineral water, she had an empty glass and maybe a bottle on the table since entree and was not offered another drink until dessert time.

Four of us went to lunch on the Mastercard Priceless deal. Great value for 2 courses, entree and main, with wine and coffee for $55.00 per person. The servings were quite large and the service was excellent. They fussed over us, even with this deal. We were seated next to the window and enjoyed the view of the harbour. It's one of the best restaurants in Sydney, with a very expensive food and wine list, so to eat here for the special price is a good way to experience the top end of our restaurants.
We have eaten at Marque, a 3 hatter, Est a 3 hatter and others with similar deals.

I had dinner here last year with my family. The food was excellent. View is very beautiful. Price is quite expensive. Overall I recommend this restaurant when you are in Sydney and looking for romantic fine dining.

We've just eaten at Aria and could not fault the experience in any way. From the time of booking to leaving the restraunt the staff were courteous and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Matt has trained the staff superbly with food to match. All in all I'd say this has been the best dining experience we've had and look forward to visiting again when we're back over from the UK. Well done all, keep up the great work.
