Meet the Chef

Originally from the Southern Highlands, Executive Chef Tom Gorringe cut his teeth within Bowral’s Milton Park Country House and Berrima’s Eschalot restaurant, before moving abroad to take up the role of senior sous chef at Bearfoot Bistro in Canada, in 2012. Here, he was introduced to luxury ingredients and the importance of seasonal dining, working closely with local producers and suppliers to create award-winning menus within the confines of Canada’s harsh seasonal availability. Returning home in 2014, Tom was appointed head chef of hatted Eschalot restaurant in Berrima NSW, where he honed his paddock to plate ethos, sourcing ingredients directly from the on-site kitchen garden and local artisans. Relocating to Sydney in 2015, Tom worked at renowned Bentley Restaurant and Bar before joining Pier One’s hatted restaurant, The Gantry, where he worked for over five years. Working his magic in the Aria kitchen, Tom was recently awarded two Sydney Morning Herald Chef’s Hats for Aria Sydney.

    Food was good but not as the evening before. Staff was world class . Appreciated extras like really good gluten free bread. We weren't on the SOH side so the view was disappointing

    Always rock solid - the scallops were sublime! Only two requests would be 1. allow people to order a la carte, as not everyone wants to eat a full 3-4 or more course meal. 2. the flowers on the wall were beautiful but not so great for people with hayfever.

    This is truly one of Australia’s very finest restaurants. It’s quite outstanding. It just ticks all the boxes with its magnificent views of Sydney Opera House and the harbour bridge, its warm welcoming atmosphere and exquisite food. You just can’t go wrong here. The service is impeccable and the wine list magnificent. It’s the perfect place for that special occasion. If you haven’t got one coming up go anyway. Dinner at Aria is the occasion!

    Went on birthday enjoyed time with myself. Waiters were nice and didn’t push me to eat fast. Liked the welcome snack and first two courses of the tasting menu. Marks off for not catered as special occasion even though noted at the time of booking.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    From the moment you walk through the door your welcomed. All the staff were amazing. The view was gorgeous, especially on the sunny day that we had. Food was a culinary treat for your tastebuds. The buffalo cheese starter & the pork cheek starters were delicious. Our steak was cooked perfectly. You could cut it with a spoon and the Pinot Noir... wow! We had a lovely lunch here at Aria and will definitely be back.
