    Booked in advance fir Valentines dinner. Requested a window seat if one was available , but we didn’t get one although there were / empty window seats OR we paid $450 per head . The $570 booking didn’t have enough food and I’m not a big bloke So we ordered more and that took the bill to $750 with the surcharge. Food was divine but overly overpriced in my opinion . It was a first time experience fir my better half , and don’t get me wrong, I’m not shy to pay

    For a well priced restaurant - service was atrocious! Thankfully food was delicious, but it's the service that makes you come back, not a pleasant experience, when you're offered wine for your main meal and they don't bring it till your near finished - that's poor service

    The staff were professional, friendly and attentive. We had Chloe initially (and cherish) and she was extremely lovely and recommended the most beautiful meals. I can’t speak highly enough about her. The food was amazing. We had the three course meal and everything was delicious and great portion sizes. The view of the harbour was lovely and the atmosphere was great. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will be back again!

    Aren't we lucky to have the beautiful Sydney harbour view? Having High Tea there certainly is a memorable experience. You have to pay additional to have the window view ($110 vs $95). We had the Festive High Tea, nice theme except missing a few traditional high tea elements, such as finger sandwiches, beautiful tea sets. Overall a nice experience except we were rushed out in 2 hours as they needed to accommodate the next booking.

    The staff were very welcoming and helpful when we asked questions or when we were unsure of things. They came around at a good pace and were very lovely during the evening.

    We were celebrating our 30th anniversary and we're treat like royalty. The overall dining was excellent, from the welcome to the food and drinks. But many thanks to our waitress, Tracey and sommelier, Adam - they both were very lovely and made our dinner date that more enjoyable.

    It was my first time at Altitude celebrating our 1 year anniversary hoping for it to be special and a beautiful evening unfortunately our evening was far from that, the food and service was below average I was notified to get a window seat the cap is $550 which I thought wouldn’t be worth it as I am pregnant and not drinking and the bill still came at $550 with our table being far from the window we had no views at all.. my husband asked for his steak to be good medium and it came out well done, really disappointing 1st anniversary dinner I do not recommend this restaurant.

    The food service and ambience were fabulous. They catered to dietary requirements incredibly easily - and was fabulous. Everything on the adults version was delicious and well presented. Was completely full - and had completely finished everything. The kids version was a little bit of a miss. Was surprised with one of the savouries presented to the kids which ended up being relatively spicy and had caviar. I had two munchkins with me who barely ate anything - one of whom really isn’t fussy with food.

    This restaurant has been around for a while and has great views. Food was of good quality with a 3 course set meal. Just be careful as the restaurant will only give people window seats if you spend a certain amount of money. We thought this was a crazy policy as you don't know what you are going to order before attending the restaurant. After we got our bill we found we had spent this amount of money but had a table near the back of the restaurant! Disappointing.
