I used to love Pony! Unfortunately this time was not a great experience. Both the rump steaks were severely over cooked, tough and not enjoyable to eat, which they did comp one of them. Being the most expensive item on the menu, and a fairly simple one at that, I’m not sure what the rest of the food would be like!
Thank you for taking the time to review us. We appreciate your feedback. Your comments have been raised with the head chef.

I've been here a couple of times, and one of my dining companions has been multiple times. There is always something interesting on the menu, with some real gems there (though I did think the food was better on my previous occasion). They had a couple of group bookings on the night I went, which kept the staff busy, but they also made sure we were being looked after as well. thanks to the staff at Pony for a great night.

The food was really good, the star being the rib eye with vegemite glaze, which was cooked to perfection. The member of staff that looked after us was great (I think her name was Sarah) and very helpful. The long/communal table concept should be made more obvious when booking. We booked the meal for our wedding anniversary and it wasn't the most romantic of settings!
Thank you for choosing to celebrate with us and I’m glad to hear that your experience was a memorable one. For future bookings, let us know that you prefer inside seating and although it can not be guaranteed, our manager will do their absolute best to accommodate your seating preference on the day. We look forward to welcoming you back to Pony Dining in The Rocks in the near future.

Our reservation was for lunch at 1pm - and although they officially close at 3, we weren't pressured to rush and leave. It was really relaxed and lovely. A pleasure as always.

About Pony Dining The Rocks

Style and sass at Pony... Widely regarded as one of the pioneers of the wood fire grill in Sydney, Pony offers an honest flavour driven menu that showcases prime Australian produce, a carefully crafted boutique selection of wines and a cheeky cocktail list. At the heart of the kitchen is a signature Argentinean wood fire grill which is used to create sensational meat dishes, prepare fresh seafood and an array of shared and larger plates. Pony Dining is located in Sydney's oldest laneway within the historic and bustling dining precinct of The Rocks. Restaurant designer Michael McCann has transformed the centuries old building into a stunning dining space that features a large open kitchen (with a pony hide clad counter), a 10 meter long dining table on the outdoor deck, an intimate lounge for pre-dinner drinks, heritage brick walls, and commissioned woven art hangings - making this space a truly unique dining destination. Best dish: Pony Cut Rib Eye (450g)
