“Couldn't fault it second time around”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

My first experience was on a gift voucher I had received and they had just completed renovations downstairs, I ordered a Lobster mornay + three other different meals before they finally had something I wanted, I swore I would never return even though they offered me a free meal on next visit I declined, never wanting to go back.
I then had a very sick friend who wanted to go there for a meal to celebrate Christmas and reluctantly I said OK if you really want to go. So pleased I went we couldn't fault the meal
(Lobster mornay) or our waiter Andre and all staff, he was most obliging and went out of his way to ensure we had a good night. I would have to say without a doubt it was the best meal ever at a restaurant and I eat out frequently. So pleased I went back to give it a second chance.
Thank you to all staff working there I have no hesitation in highly recommending the Harbourfront Wollongong for one of the best seafood meals around. Wendy

“Average food for the price”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Can`t agree with the good reviews here. The four of us had rather average tasting dishes, convenience food I`d call it. The Calamari looked and tasted the same than the ones you buy frozen in the supermarket, nothing much. My main course was misplaced, so I had to watch the others eating for some time, alright. Next day I was sick, I was very suspicious but can`t prove it was that dinner, however a friend told us about a similar experience. Wine was fine, seating by the harbour too. Overall far too pricey for the quality. Would definetely give it a miss.

“Pre- show dinner enjoyed by all!”
Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

Needed to have efficient service - which we did receive and were pleasantly surprised by the very tasty and well presented hot and cold seafood platter to share. Lobster morney was a tasty melt In your mouth experience and loved the king prawns. Salad dressing was zesty and the meal was a great way to start the night whilst also enjoying the evening over looking the Harbour

“Wedding Bliss”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Harbourfront restaurant & team of staff we thank you for creating a wonderful wedding experience for us. The newly renovated premises are exceptional & wedding styling was stunning. The food & service was to the highest of standards. Our guests raved about the food, decor & ambience restaurant provides. Harbourfront has the best views & the setting on the harbour, is the best in Wollongong. The wedding functions team, Danielle & Iman were wonderful to work with, paying attention to every fine detail. Harbourfront food is different to a typical function centre, as you can select from a wide range options, all dishes are very well presented with generous servings. Our guests were so impressed & said the food is delicious! I highly recommend Harbourfront as a wedding venue.
