Every element of this dining experience was excellent. The welcoming and helpful staff complemented the wonderful design and atmosphere of the restaurant. The food - every course and even the freshly baked side bread - was astonishingly good. A wide range of flavours but never overwhelming. Champagne and wine were exceptional but added to an already wonderful menu.
Fantastic! We were there to celebrate a special birthday and had relatives from interstate. They loved the views , atmosphere and the food . A very special night - thanks
Good service, beautiful food, comfort environment
Very polished restaurant, impeccable welcoming and service. Food was delicious, and at roughly $150pp for a three course meal that would definitely leave you satisfied, probably one of the best value fine dining meals in Sydney.
The service was impeccable. The food amazing. Peter Gilmore & Team, Thank you, I felt like royalty.
Amazing venue great food and service. Great for that special occasion
Very welcoming from the beginning to end. Our waiter was helpful & attentive. The service was amazing and the food even better. They were able to make recommendations and we appreciated every minute of this experience
Bedsides the obvious amazing location, the service has been very professional and welcoming. We opted for the Cured & Cultured menu which was an amazing option to get a good first taste of what Bennelong Restaurant has to offer that won’t break the bank. Definitely worth a try!
Nice location and good food. But the service is unbelievably slow and the interior is dated and boring like from the 80-s. It lacks the ambience and guests in flip flops don’t help either. Altogether, nice place for a casual meal but not for fine dining
Everything looked very pretty just not sure if it tasted of anything. Atmosphere might be better at dinner. Not sure if hurry back, even on someone else's ticket.
WOW! Bennelong was a wonderful experience for us. We were a group of eight (8) coming together for a special celebration. We had cocktails and then dinner. It was absolutely fabulous. We could not fault anything. Highly recommended. We will certainly be returning!
We ordered from pre-theatre menu but they charged us the standard menu. Waiter wasn’t helpful so we had to speak to the manager who corrected our bill. Service from the staff was good - they were efficient but not genuinely warm. View from restaurant was awesome. Food was great and they have an extensive wine menu showcasing some of the best Australian wines. Overall it was an enjoyable experience.
Food was not impressive
The restaurant is beautifully situated in Opera house with an amazing view and ambience. The service received was excellent as well. However, I felt the food fell short of expectations, especially for the price. The entree of XO scallop and squid noodles were both excellent start to the meal, but then the food went downhill from there. The wagyu beef was quite chewy and the fish was under seasoned, we were disappointed by this given the entrees were both excellent. Both desserts were extremely pretty and well presented, however, they were both too sweet and one dimensional in flavour. We had high expectations of this place given our excellent experience with Quay, but I think the food here is just not on the same level.
Delicious food! Great atmosphere! 10/10
Good food and good service.
Service was outstanding from the moment we walked in. Our meals were all very good with excellent wine pairing suggestions. Expensive for sure but you know that and it was truly worth it
The food, service, presentation etc were excellent, but the draft from air conditioning was very annoying. We ware sitting on the east side of the restaurant and were all chilled. I think more attention should be given to the air conditioning system operation as it spoiled my otherwise excellent experience.
A perfect evening- could not find fault with anything. The food was excellently presented and tasted as good as it looked. All the staff were welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable and professional from the greeting when we arrived throughout the meal and upon leaving - especially our main waiter Anno (sorry if that's the wrong spelling) who's from Indonesia and studying at university in Sydney. Will definitely return again.
