La Luna Bistro

Carlton North

Marc dined on Sat, 23rd Mar 2019 (10)

Squires Loft City Grill Room

Marc dined on Fri, 22nd Mar 2019 (8)

We were well looked after with good service, but the steaks were a little tough and fatty.

The Bathers' Pavilion

Mosman

Brilliant allround on a sunny Sydney day. What a location and backed up by tremendous food and attentive service.

Aqua Dining

Milsons Point

Marc dined on Sat, 2nd Mar 2019 (9)

Stunning location and great service as always. The food was quite good but some courses of the degustation weren’t to our palate but hey you can’t cater for that. The agnolotti was a taste sensation.

The Malaya

Simply the best Asian in Sydney.

The Salopian Inn

Mclaren Vale

Marc dined on Fri, 28th Dec 2018 (10)

Modern delicious Indian food backed by attentive service.

Blue Eye Dragon

Golden Century

Sydney CBD

Marc dined on Fri, 24th Feb 2017 (8)

Had a group catch up here last Friday night and the food was excellent as always but the service apart from the trainee was grumpy and unhelpful. BYO helped the pricing which is rare in Sydney.

Blue Eye Dragon

Pyrmont

Marc dined on Fri, 3rd Feb 2017 (10)

Fabulous meal and great friendly service.

Blue Eye Dragon

Pyrmont

Marc dined on Sat, 7th Jan 2017 (10)

Invited some visiting friends to join us for dinner and ordered the banquet which was a massive hit. An excellent cross section of food of the highest quality and flavour. Service was great as well.

The Malaya

Southbank

Very nice food and attentive service.

La Camera Southgate

Southbank

Marc dined on Sun, 30th Oct 2016 (8)

Nice traditional Italian food but great service and looked after the birthday girl with a sparkly dessert. Nice work guys.

Aqua Dining

Milsons Point

Good food and lovely wines. Best ever service from the waiter who looked after us with thanks

Signorelli Gastronomia

Pyrmont

Marc dined on Sat, 1st Oct 2016 (7)

Great pizzas but otherwise an odd Italian menu. Not enough pasta options and no Tiramisu which is very strange. Service is hit and miss but Nico in front of house is excellent.

Manjit's at the Wharf

Sydney CBD

Marc dined on Wed, 28th Sep 2016 (10)

Excellent food and best Indian in Sydney. Good service as well.

One Ford Street

Balmain

Marc dined on Sun, 25th Sep 2016 (10)

Lovely food during a long lunch and really attentive service. Great job guys.

Rustica

Newcastle

Great food and the lamb was outstanding. Prompt and attentive service.

The Malaya

Darling Harbour

Marc dined on Sun, 28th Aug 2016 (10)

The best consistently good food in Sydney.

Blue Eye Dragon

Pyrmont

Marc dined on Sat, 6th Aug 2016 (9)

Nice fresh food, really tasty with a good wine list. Service is good as well.

The Rocks Teppanyaki

The Rocks

Marc dined on Sun, 31st Jul 2016 (8)

We wanted some Teppanyaki and thought we'd give this spot a go. Food was nice and unusually large servings for this style of eating. Service was patchy and it would be useful if each course is carefully explained before eating which adds to the theatre.

The Malaya

Darling Harbour

Marc dined on Sat, 30th Jul 2016 (10)

Best restaurant in Sydney. Fantastic food and attentive service.

Ormeggio at the Spit

Mosman

Marc dined on Wed, 27th Jul 2016 (9)

Attended the Regional Showcase dinner last night and whilst the Wagyu mains and dessert were top notch, we found the first 2 dishes confusing and certainly not to our palate. That can happen with degustation of course and we will certainly be back. Service was impeccable as always.

Blue Eye Dragon

Pyrmont

Marc dined on Wed, 20th Jul 2016 (10)

Lovely dumplings as always but everything else was great as well.

The Century

Pyrmont

Marc dined on Sun, 17th Jul 2016 (8)

Nice food and the service was pretty good but many staff hanging around which was strange. Meals were delivered promptly but the signature dish, a live coral trout came out much later than everything else and when everyone was full. Some better timing would have been nice.

Signorelli Gastronomia

Pyrmont

Marc dined on Sat, 16th Jul 2016 (10)

Lovely food and also helped with our surprise birthday cake which was much appreciated.

Manjit's at the Wharf

Sydney CBD

Marc dined on Fri, 15th Jul 2016 (9)

Lovely food with the bug curry an absolute stand out. Attentive service and a nice buzz as well.

Lotus Restaurant Galeries

Sydney CBD

Marc dined on Thu, 14th Jul 2016 (10)

Best dumplings in Sydney by a distance. Backed up by great service in a lovely location. Can you just do me one favour, I love fried rice but not a fan of yours unfortunately (and it pains me to say it). Love the mix of vegies but the mustard seeds just overpower everything so a plain fried rice option would be great. Sorry to be picky and it certainly won't stop me coming back.

The Malaya

Darling Harbour

Marc dined on Sat, 9th Jul 2016 (10)

A great experience as always. Great food and attentive service on a busy night.

Signorelli Gastronomia

Pyrmont

Lotus Restaurant Galeries

Sydney CBD

Marc dined on Wed, 1st Jun 2016 (10)

Had a business lunch here at my recommendation and as usual the food was great and the service very good.

The Century

Pyrmont

Marc dined on Sun, 29th May 2016 (8)

Food was excellent but the service and general ambience is off. Felt like battery hens being shuffled about to our table and they are far too close together (easy to hear our neighbours conversation). The microphones the staff wear also make you feel like you are surrounded by the secret service.

The Malaya

Darling Harbour

Marc dined on Sat, 14th May 2016 (7)

Food was great as always and service was attentive and relaxed. A small stuff up with our mains appearing before we had finished our entrees but that was quickly dealt with.

Nagisa

Newcastle

Marc dined on Sat, 7th May 2016 (7)

Good service and nice atmosphere but the food was just OK. Gyouza really good as was the Terriyaki chicken, but the scallops, tempura prawns and salmon mains were only fair.

3 Weeds Restaurant

Rozelle

Marc dined on Fri, 6th May 2016 (10)

Excellent food and attentive service.

The Malaya

Darling Harbour

Marc dined on Sun, 1st May 2016 (10)

Fantastic as always.

Criniti's Darling Harbour

Darling Harbour

Marc dined on Mon, 28th Mar 2016 (7)

Food was very nice, service OK but some rudimentary knowledge of wines would have been good. Very noisy mainly due to a number of unruly kids so we will book later next time.

ABODE Bistro Bar

Sydney CBD

Marc dined on Thu, 3rd Mar 2016 (7)

Food was good without being spectacular. Service was very efficient. Live music was a nice touch.

Aqua Dining

Milsons Point

Marc dined on Sun, 28th Feb 2016 (9)

Great location and comfortable attentive service. Food was well presented but the whiting was dull and when discussed with the staff they duly removed from our bill. Top notch and we will be back.

Blue Fish

Darling Harbour

Marc dined on Tue, 16th Feb 2016 (9)

Very nice meals and excellent service from the young guy who attended our table.

Lotus Restaurant Galeries

Marc dined on Mon, 15th Feb 2016 (9)

Always great food and attentive service.

The Ternary

Pyrmont

Marc dined on Sun, 27th Dec 2015 (8)

The food was nice, but the service was stunted as they obviously had not planned for a busy Xmas Sunday. Will be back though as they have looked after us well previously.

Golden Century

Sydney CBD

Marc dined on Sat, 14th Nov 2015 (8)

The food here is always excellent and one of the best Chinese restaurants in all of Sydney. Service is always pretty good, but the check in process on arrival (even with a firm booking) is just so humourless and cold it does make me question whether to come here. How about a cheery welcome and if it is going to be 5 or 10 minutes for the table to be ready some good old fashioned customer service wouldn't go astray while you wait.

Criniti's Woolloomooloo

Woolloomooloo

Marc dined on Sun, 11th Oct 2015 (7)

Very nice food and an extensive (almost overwhelming) menu. Service was a bit patchy, wine took too long, no black pepper when asked and the bruschetta was served along with the entrees. Good pasta though and my Wife's scampi and fig entree was delicious. One thing though, can you get the smokers more than a few metres away as is now required by law ? Unpleasant to have smoke wash over you while you're trying to eat !!!

Icebergs Dining Room and Bar

Bondi Beach

Marc dined on Sat, 3rd Oct 2015 (10)

Had dinner here last Saturday night for our Anniversary. Usually like to have lunch and enjoy the water but even at night the views were amazing. Have to say that the food and service was also outstanding and to finish up with a roadie on the balcony was sensational. Well done guys.

Emperor's Garden Restaurant

Haymarket

Marc dined on Tue, 22nd Sep 2015 (7)

Had dinner here last night with my son on a Dimmi rewards voucher. The spring rolls were nice, shanghai dumplings were OK and the salt n pepper prawns quite tasty. Had the BBQ platter and it was cold which meant the meat was quite fatty and not very tasty. Service was OK.

The Malaya

Darling Harbour

Marc dined on Wed, 2nd Sep 2015 (10)

Excellent as always

Mantecato

Balmain

Marc dined on Tue, 1st Sep 2015 (9)

Tucked away in Balmain but worth finding it. Lovely food, a great wine list and attentive service.

Aegean Blu

Pyrmont

Marc dined on Wed, 19th Aug 2015 (8)

Food was nice and on a 50% off night great value. Service was attentive but we were given the same entree twice and another we didn't order but that was quickly fixed.

Grappa Ristorante & Bar

Excellent food and really attentive service seeing there were so many large groups dining. Beef cheeks best I've ever had.

The Gantry Restaurant

Sydney CBD

Marc dined on Thu, 21st May 2015 (6)

Oysters and Prawns for entree were nice. But the Bugs and Duck for mains were just OK and the serving sizes way too small for the price. Noisy spot with far too many people allowed to hover around the entrance near where our table was. Won't be back.

The Malaya

Darling Harbour

Marc dined on Tue, 19th May 2015 (9)

Great food, great service.................what more do you want ?

Le Chat Noir

Terrigal

Marc dined on Sat, 9th May 2015 (6)

Entrees of quail and crab were quite nice but the mains of sole and "fruits of the sea" were very disappointing. Fries appeared when we were nearly finished our mains but they did apologise and took them off the bill. Expected more given the high ratings and the place was full so maybe just a bad night.

Reef

Terrigal

Marc dined on Sun, 19th Apr 2015 (10)

What great views and food and service to match. Great job guys.

Macleay Street Bistro

Potts Point

Marc dined on Sat, 21st Mar 2015 (8)

My wife and I had dinner last night and the food was very good and the service excellent. A smallish place with tiled floors so it was quite noisy being next to the kitchen and with a big table of loud ladies behind us, but for us it's all about the food and wine so we will be back.

The Malaya

Darling Harbour

Marc dined on Wed, 11th Mar 2015 (9)

Hickson's Food & Wine

Lovely location, great service but menu lacks any punch or variety and quite small serves for the price.

Kobe Jones Sydney

Darling Harbour

Marc dined on Sun, 23rd Nov 2014 (2)

Decided to go here last night to show my Wife (as she loves Japanese seafood) despite the poor reviews and really wish I'd listened. Service (which seems to be a common theme) was atrocious for such an expenive Restaurant and several times I had to chase the Waitresses around the room to get a drink !! Food was nice but not outstanding and being a Sunday night with a surcharge the bill of $378 was just outrageous. To the Owners of Kobe Jones, do you not read the comments on Dimmi ?? Never ever again.

Mez Kouzina

Dux Cafe Restaurant

Como

Marc dined on Wed, 26th Feb 2014 (7)

Had dinner at Dux last night on the Dimmi 50% off food deal. We ordered the tasting plate for entree which was quite nice and for mains my wife had the fish which was overcooked and a bit too "steaky" whilst I had the lamb platter which was cold and some aspects were quite tough whilst the kofta and pie were very nice. A fair effort but you expect better with mains priced at around $38.

That Little Mexican Place (Vic Park)

Victoria Park

Marc dined on Thu, 1st Aug 2013 (4)

Been meaning to return to this restaurant as we live locally and the last time wasn't a hit but sometimes you can just order badly. So, we shared 4 different dishes and to be honest we were just as disappointed as last time. We had the chicken "concoction" and the chicken whilst well cooked was bland and the sauce provided was non complimentary. The pulled pork tacos were nice and the fish ceviche just OK. The breaded jalapenos were just plain boring. Would much prefer a local mexican to provide the usual favourite like tacos, enchiladas and fajitas which when cooked well are delicious. Lucky we went on 50% off night !!!
