A great view of the opera house here. Nice decor inside. Plenty of seating. Gin Martini ($22) ordered with Distillery Botanica but came out with The Botantist Gin. Was rectified and later comped due to a couple of menu hiccups that followed. Oysters ($27 half dozen) could be improved, especially when service assured me they were 'shucked to order' when queried. They were missing their brine and stuck to the shell which could only have happened when preshucked. They brought out a second batch to redeem themselves which were shucked to order with some brine retained — much better. Steak Sandwich - brioche, striploin, grilled portobello, tomato confit, red onion marmalade, chips ($28) — a tasty hunger buster although it's more a ciabatta than a brioche. The tomato confit was missing from the sandwich but the kitchen rectified by bringing out a bowl of them after which helped provide a bit of extra moisture. Nice piece of steak and really enjoyed the portobello mushroom slices. Fries were crispy and well seasoned as hoped. I think the venue has lots of potential with some better attention to detail. Other dishes spotted at other tables looked very promising.
