The food was not bad but we expected it to be better. One of the sweet cocktails I had was really good. Nice view overlooking the Opera House. I asked for a window seat for a birthday celebration when I booked on The Fork however we had a table furthest away from the windows :( Staffs were polite however the overall service felt very very bland and cold. They all looked like they were literally just 'doing their job' with no emotions whatsoever. It was a Monday night, guess they were all recovering from the weekend. The restaurant felt quite dated. Think it's time for a refurbishment.
Exquisite food + wine! Amazing views! Seamless service! We will return ...
Really in general the service is top notch here with attention to detail. Food is great too but probably other good places in a similar range. Can’t really go wrong to impress.
Food and service was excellent
It’s a beautiful location but unfortunately the food doesn’t quite match the ambience. The staff are pleasant and presentation of the food is to a high standard . However the fish was overcooked and a bit salty and the fillet steak was slightly tough. I’m sure the produce being used is exceptional but I think it needs to be handled a bit more delicately.
Great view of opera house & Friendly, professional service by everyone at Aria. We had 2-course pre-theatre menu. Kicked off well with delicious amuse bouche of tuna sashimi on seaweed crisps and shiso peach! Highlight dishes were wild kingfish (main) and sweet potato (dessert), flavoursome and beautiful presentation. Highly recommended for a classy date night or family gatherings.
Great location ,food was good service was okay but brought the wrong food to the table which should not happen at a restaurant of this stature ,disappointing .
Food and service was amazing. Fine dining, but didn't feel stuffy at all. Great advice on wine selection, catered for our tastes and budget without prejudice. Great window table, not sure it was the absolute prime table as it was to the side a bit (booked 5 months in advance to guarantee the best table) but was probably a bit more private there, so no probs. Would definitely recommend trying Aria once, but for us we probably wouldn't return, as we're interstate and this was a special occasion, but really glad we went there.
Outstanding food, lovely service and a wonderful spot. Just very slow when we had the degustation. It's a long meal, but they just dragged it out way too much.
Good service, atmosphere. Great presentation of food, and excellent mix of flavours. Freshness of food is excellent. It was my wife birthday and they added a touch of birthday message to the dessert. One of the top fine dinning restaurants I have tried in my food tasting journey.
Incredible experience and amazing food. Highly recommend. Worth the price!
We tried 20th anniversary menu which is fantastic

Food was quite average and very salty, not worth the hefty price we paid. The service and the view was excellent, however we will not be going back.
