    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.

    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

    Kate, our waiter was so good. She welcomed us, explained the menu, made suggestions and double checked with the chef about the food, because one of our party has a food allergy, and always with a smile! All the food was delicious. My Tenderloin was perfectly cooked and the toothfish was described as the best dish he had eaten for a while. I am never disappointed with the food; but the service last night was exceptional. we'll be back.

    Delicious food, unique menu and a beautiful venue. Overall, my friends and I had a great experience. However, as some gentle feedback, our group would have appreciated better better communication. We were looking forward to sampling the pre-theatre which we saw advertised on The Fork and on the restaurant's website but this menu ($60pp) was unavailable during the VIVID period and instead had been replaced by a limited VIVID course menu ($89pp). We ended up ordering a-la-carte but perhaps updating the website during the VIVID period next year would be a good idea? I had also made a special request in our booking form that couldn't be accommodated for, which in itself is perfectly fine but again, we would have appreciated a heads up in advance. Just felt a bit dampening to our mood to arrive to a string of disappointments. In the grand scheme of things only minor issues - we would still consider revisiting in future.

    This used to be a great restaurant but service and food preparation now left them down badly. We have been going to Q Dining and it’s predecessor for years, often before concerts at the Opera House but we have become increasingly dissatisfied with Q Dining and this was their last chance. We will not be back

    We dine here often and the food is excellent. However last time we visited many small courtesies such as bread and amuse bouche were not offered and water did not come with ice and lemon. The change of policy may be good for the bottom line but does not engender loyalty and downgrades the restaurant overall.

    The drink service could have been better. We had empty glasses for awhile before we could get the attention to refill from our purchased wine. Otherwise the food and wine were excellent.

    The menu changed quite dramatically from the last time we were there. We found the menu a little try hard. Perhaps trying to impress tourists. Also expensive. However the entree salad I ordered was beautifully presented and tasty. My partner ordered a main which was also very tasty. Service was good. But our water glasses were never refilled surprisingly. Also surprised to learn that the Accor card can only be used sparingly on the menu.

    We noticed groups at other tables had been given an additional menu which we were not given, but by the time we realised we had already chosen our meals. We weren't told until we ordered that the "pigeon" dish was not available.

About the 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. The meals are set at reasonable prices and served in generous portions. Accor Advantage Plus members can dine at a discount.

Best dish: duck with cherries with a side dish of asparagus
