Very very slow. When I waited at the entrance, no one came to welcome me, not even a word of "I'll be with you soon". After 10 minutes, a staff eventually came to ask me whether I got a booking. After sitting down, no one asked whether we needed any water. We waited another 10 minutes to get a staff to order food. Then 30 minutes wait for entree and 20 minutes wait for the main after the entree. It was an awful service. Will never even go there anymore. Do NOT recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Food was delicious! It was a very nice experience. Food was served quickly and really tasty. It was just a bit hard to get to the place since it is in a hotel but that’s the only issue.
Q Dining staff were most helpful in suggesting just the right selection of Lunch dishes for my group Of ladies. Love the view of the overseas terminal and inner harbour with all the vessel movements
This is my second visit, have to say a disappointing one. First time was lovely, hence the revisit. Two wait staff, very friendly but they were too busy to offer us refill of water. Food was nice until dessert came. We ordered the buttermilk panna cotta, came with fresh some berries. The texture was not right, was harder than jelly. When asked the staff, staff indicated that's how the dish is normally, staff was not able to offer us something else except an exchange of the same item, and we were advised it will be the same. At the end we had the dish taken away, but still paid for the dish. I was looking forward to try their high tea, now I will reconsider.
The food is always amazing at Q Dining. Fresh and delicious. Loved the chocolate tart.
Beautifully prepared, honest, tasty food served in a bright and comfortable space. The only hiccup was being asked by one wait staff if we'd like to order anything else even though the other wait staff had just cleared our entree plates.
Food was great and the service was attentive.
Staff were friendly and welcoming. We shared a salad for entree with bread, had pasta and cod for mains. Desserts looked delicious but we were too full to eat anymore. Restaurant has a lovely vibe, can be for family lunch or romantic dinner. I saw other tables having high tea too, looking forward to try that as well.
Great meal and good service
The lamb shoulder was beautiful, the ambience was fantastic and the service was impeccable. Would highly recommend!
We had another great meal at Q Dining. The scallops were beautiful and the Park and Linguini were delicious. Great and attentive service. Looking forward to our next visit
Great location and views. Convenient spot to dine before or after a show at the Opera House. Food was good particularly the bread and butter! Service was really lovely.
For such a great setting the food and service just don’t match. Good effort by all concerned but seems tired and touristy and survives on tourists and international wait staff. Not sure customer service is priority though nothing overly wrong. Just nothing to feel anything special about. All very average. Only ordered desert... white yoghurt something but so disappointing. Melted into a sugary puddle.
Staff were doing well under pressure, they really needed another person on. They got us in and out in great time to make it to the theatre. Food was ok, but defiantly not outstanding.
Delicious food in a gorgeous setting. Thank you for yet another wonderful meal and experience. I especially appreciate the extra touch of the birthday surprise for my friend - unexpected and much appreciated. Q Dining is my go to place to take visitors coming to Sydney and for special occasions.
Atmosphere was wonderful/food was ok but it was short staffs or they were not trained - we felt the service was somewhat too slow.
Excellent food, view and service. Although the first two meals we ordered came in reasonably on time, unfortunately the interval between the 2nd and last course was significant we had to follow it up. Especially it is a pre-theatre meals, we ended up being a tad late to watch the Sydney Opera Symphony perform.
Q Dining never fails to deliver beautiful food in a haven perched above the very busy East Circular Quay precinct, with a view of the setting sun towards the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Ferries. It's always our go-to before a show at the Opera House.
Friendly staff and delicious fresh food. I will definitely go back again.
Was a weeknight which was not too busy but only had one staff on duty. Whilst service was ok...it would have been much better if there was just one more staff..... so service could be more 'attentive' if you want to lift the 'service' of the restaurant. The one staff had to do drinks, take orders, service food, pour water etc etc making it stressful for staff member as well as customers (who would otherwise have more prompt service'. Oysters was fresh with cucumber (but too much cucumber juice) but there was no finger lime as per the menu. Food was ok... but was below expectation for that calibre of restaurant

Style and substance
Q dining is located on the mezzanine level of the luxurious Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour. The décor is inspired by the spectacular waterfront location, overlooking Circular Quay. Q dining’s dining room features glass in primary colours and steel tones. The cuisine is of a high quality and beautifully presented; with a menu that has a focus on fresh and locally sourced produce where possible.
They have a solid wine list, and are also happy to pop upstairs to the bar to fetch a cocktail for you. A great location for a meal before heading to a the theatre or show, these guys offer both a set pre show menu and a-la-carte options.
A perfect idea for people with overseas or interstate visitors who are wanting to make a big impression due to the unique combination of stunning view of the harbour and city, and wonderful cuisine.
