The food and cocktails were nice but drink service very slow. We finished our starter and half of our main, 45 minutes in, before our first drink arrived.

Booked for New Years Eve al la carte. We were a previous customer who enjoy the menu so we booked on the basis of the menu published on the website & previous enjoyable experiences. On arrival we were given a short selection menu. We were not advised that the full al la carte menu was not available at any time prior to us actually sitting down at the table. There was nothing on the short menu that my wife would eat so we were forced into ordering a simple overpriced, fatty steak & chips. Very disappointing & expensive experience.

My partner and I had the worst meal for dinner on New Years Eve. It was overcooked and dry. I understand of the busy night because of the event. But it’s a simple mashed potatoes and it wasn’t mashed it was lumpy and taste terrible, the sauce was so runny and steak was well done not medium, pork ribs was so tough and chewy and dry not enough bbq sauce terrible. I paid $45 for each main and no credit to our meal was eaten had to force ourselves to eat because it is pricey. If Gordon Ramsay come to this restaurant I think he would say far worst. If you have trainees working there or professional chefs? My brother would have done it better in the kitchen because he has worked in the industry for many years never in my life I tasted this meal in this fine dining restaurant you have the worst service. Don’t think you have tasted your food before serving to your customers. I’m embarrassed to bring my partner here as this was supposed to be a nice night for us despite of the bad weather. At first Entre was great then the rain came down so hard we were given the worst spot ever even though I have booked in for my reservation two months before the d date. In the middle of our mains we were asked to leave the table after 2 hours due to rotation but in my email I wasn’t told there is a time limit and specifically asked to book purely for the 9pm fireworks and it wasn’t honoured. Was very disappointed and not sure if I can come back to this restaurant.

Service was awful. Had 3 different servers, waited almost 45 minutes for someone after we were seated, had to constantly ask for service..... and they weren’t even busy yet. So many empty tables around us. So pissed that we spent all that money for our New Year’s Eve dinner in Australia for shitty service.

I oreded the Pulled Duck Leg Salad and it was Terrible. There was only 4 very Small peices of duck and a massive peice of duck fat. Also i found 3 bones, one which was long and sharp (5cm long). This was totally unexceptable. I was offered a coffee for compenstion and i still had to pay for a meal that i did not eat. Absolutely Disgusting.

I have been there a couple of times now and I always love it except for their staff who come in quite frequently to check and clear the dishes while we still Eating. It’s a great service but you gotta respect the privacy and leave the tables on their own while they eating. Otherwise great ! Would come back always
