    Second time visiting the restaurant and it was just as good as the first time. My family was impressed and being a birthday party this was important. Would go back. Please don't change the quality and class of the restaurant.....

    1908 never disappoints with the high quality service and fine foot. Thanks to John, who served us and recommended an excellent choice in a cocktail and my main meal. We enjoyed everything and that's why we return to this restaurant.

    When we arrived there was a wedding that was very loud, the restaurant was so busy... too many tables and we got put on an overflow table next to a door that patrons and workers were continuously coming in & out of. They offered us a complimentary drinks as they knew we were not comfortable. Offered to move us but some other poor sucker would just get this table. Entrees were delicious. Steak for main meal was fatty which was disappointing. Not the lovely anniversary special dinner we were hoping for unfortunately

    We were recommended this restaurant and traveled from Wollongong now for the second time to visit and it didn’t disappoint. The service is excellent and he really knows how to work the floor, his suggestions were spot on from the food to the selection of the wine ( excuse me as I didn’t catch his name) we will definitely come back again soon and Thankyou for the lovely day

    I have been to this restaurant before a few times before Covid . The food menu had changed since , for the better . The service was attentive and the restaurant was quite busy for Sunday lunch . Glad to see our neighbourhood business back to thriving again after Covid . Normally it is impossible to find parking on Sundays in Cronulla but we were very lucky to find one in front of the restaurant. Might have been due to the weather ! Overall it was a good day !!!!

    Nice food, scallops were a highlight, very nice cocktail, nice service and quick to bring out the food, large number of spiders webs on the roof.

    The location and fit out of the restaurant is stunning. The food was good but tended to have too many competing flavours which sometimes overpowered the main ingredient, like the scallops. A little disappointed with our plates needing to be replaced because they had a covering of dust.

    It was a very slow night in the restaurant and the service matched. We arrived at 7 and were seated straight away. We ordered appetisers and our first drink order but sat with only water on our table for an extensive amount of time. We received our appetisers before our drink order. When the drinks were finally delivered, only three of the four drinks were delivered to the table but one cocktail took considerably longer. Once the cocktail was made and placed on the bar, we watched on while it sat there and no waitstaff brought it over. I was forced to leave our table and go up to the bar to fetch it myself. I told one of the staff that we were waiting on the last cocktail so we could celebrate our guests engagement. We realised given the caliber of service we needed to order our mains quickly. Once our order was taken, one of the waitstaff confidently came to our table with two red wines but soon realised by our reaction it was the wrong table. We waited so long for our food that we had to get the attention of one of the staff. He came over and we informed him we were waiting on our mains. He checked on our order only to return with an apology saying they lost our docket. He repeated the order and when returning from the kitchen, he told us one of the meals were sold out. At no time did any staff bring over any food and beverage as an apology. The food was lovely but that is certainly no reason to return. Food is not what makes people come back, service is. We were embarrassed by the amount of apologies we had to say to our guests for our choice in restaurant. Our bill exceeded $350 yet we walked out unsatisfied.

    Everytime this place comes to mind I think of the amazing cocktails! The food is just as great and the staff are lovely which is why I always book 1908 for special lunches. Never a disappointment!

    Nowhere near as good as previous visits. Food well below par and service was lacking. Wrong food brought to the table twice, waited ages for drinks and food to come out. Food was lacking any taste.

    Amazing food and service. Would go back tomorrow. Table service was excellent and the meals were described perfectly. Complimentary cocktail at the end of the meal went down very well.
