    We were mostly disappointed with the service - the tall lady in black was particularly inhospitable and threw down the drinks menu when being I was being shown the table, as if I was a nuisance. We were also kept waiting a long time before having our order taken. A real shame as the restaurant ambience is lovely and food is pretty good. Recommend the kangaroo tartare, ricotta dumplings and seared tuna with soba noodles.

    So good to be back. Been a long 12 months, but all at Pony certainly didn’t disappoint, with a big welcome, great food and the typical amazing service. Accommodating in every way for dietary requirements. Well done Team, and Jazz. See you soon

    The service was a let down. It was slow and disorganised. I wouldn’t bother again.

    I really enjoyed my evening at Pony. From the moment my partner and I walked in the service was second to none. Jaz our lovely waitress was charming and made excellent recommendations. Glasses were never allowed to be empty and every need was attended to. The highlight for me was the Ribeye and bone marrow. It was the best steak I have had in a really long time and the flavour of the marrow melting into the meat like a butter was sublime. Highly recommend!

    We’ve been to Pony a few times in the past and always had a good experience. The entrees were amazing but we did have to send the steaks back as they were a little under for our liking.

About the restaurant

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)
