    For a number of years this has been a regular location for lunch for me and associates. We won’t be going back after this visit. Half way through our meal, we were told that they had a wedding coming in and we needed to be out by 3pm, which was 1 hour and 45min after the arrival time. It wasn’t mentioned on arrival, when we ordered the banquet option, or when I made the booking, there was no mention of this (including the follow-up email the day before!). Very disappointing

    Excellent food, once it arrived however took over an hour from ordering. Room was very loud and hard to hear each other. Staff were warm and friendly though so all in all a good experience.

    Riley St Garage

    Hi there! I'm really sorry your experience was compromised by the waiting time. Some of our dishes take longer than others due to their complexion. I hope this won't stop you from visiting us again. We would love to make it up to you!

    The food was beautiful and our waitress gave us good advice in terms of portion size and whether we had ordered enough. Staff were great! Our Canadian waitress was very friendly and made good conversation with us throughout the evening. The French guy who served us our pork knuckle cut up the piece of meat at our table and served it to each of us, very good service! Even the Malbec wine was served by a friendly Argentinian who made conversation.

    Riley St Garage

    Thank you! We pride ourselves on delivering a superb experience to each and every customer. We absolutely loved having you! See you again soon we hope!

    Vivian our waitress was amazing, great service and lots of laughs. $105 banquet was rushed unfortunately since we had a 2 hr limit and were a little late but all dishes were good. Corn, pork belly & pina colada were our faves!

    Riley St Garage

    We love Viv! Glad you enjoyed your time with us. We look forward to having you back.

    We have been to Riley St Garage numerous times and have never been disappointed with the food or the wait staff. Last night was the first time back since the change in menu with the Japanese influence/fusion and it was amazing. From the edamame beans to the miso glazed lamb, the $85 banquet was cooked to perfection, Did I mention the truffle soy oysters... I could eat them all night... delish... see you again soon Riley St.

    Riley St Garage

    Hey there! Thanks for sharing. A banquet is indeed the best way to explore our menu. Glad you enjoyed the ride! Until next time :)

    Was surprised and well pleased with the physical surrounds and ambience. The degustation menu was outstanding although it should have included a salad or vegetable dish IMHO. Every dish was innovative and well executed. Will definitely return.

    Thank you for appreciating our New York style vibe! we hope to see you again, soon!

    Really great food. Wait staff were mostly friendly although there were one or two wait staff that seemed quite impatient and at times pushy - was likely just because they were tired or quite busy.

    Riley St Garage

    Hi Kevin, first of all thank you for sharing. I'm glad you enjoyed your evening overall. My deepest apologies for some of the staff - I will speak to them about it. Hoping this will not stop you from coming back to see us again. All the best!

About the restaurant

Park Yourself at this Slick Garage

Set back from the whirl of William Street, Riley Street Garage is a slick restaurant and bar that once housed Lessey's Drive Yourself (a car hire business), and more recently, a private parking lot. Today, this little gem has a very different purpose. Located in a grand, art deco style building, built in 1934, Riley Street is a dark and sexy space with food, drink and seating options to suit all kinds of diverse dining journeys. The industrial interior features original exposed brick walls, preserved steel rafters and an impressive, and expansive timber bar where oysters are shucked to order and cocktails are poured to perfection. The drinks list is comprehensive, with a strong emphasis on tequila, rum and whisky, and plenty of wines that traverse the globe. The food has a melting pot of influences, from Asian to American, sashimi to corn dogs, complete with small, share and main dishes, offering flexibility for every type of diner. Riley St Garage's philosophy of “I’d rather eat in a bar then drink in a restaurant” certainly shines through with decibels building as the night kicks on. Park yourself at the bar, at a table, or in a booth and get ready for a fun-filled night out at this reconstructed garage. The experience is unmatched in Sydney. See for yourself.
