Although the building is grand it looses its intimacy I have eaten in most of the top restaurants in Sydney but the quality at Rock pool bar and grill is second rate and way over priced , quality v quantity

The best cooked steak I’ve ever had in Sydney. Pricey, but worth it.

Great atmosphere & service. I’d definitely skip cocktails next time as it wasn’t my kind of taste/flavour.

As usual a wonderful dining experience. Perfectly cooked steaks and a wonderful wine selection. Service is attentive, all staff are well presented and helpful. There was an unfortunate error with the bill which was rectified after we pointed it out.

Food was very tasty( but I did have to send my steak back as it was too rare- had asked for medium rare ) it’s a beautiful venue. Our sides were amazing and the steak melt in the mouth amazing . Very expensive! Best part was the plate of petite fours. Delicious!

Fantastic food and service. From the bar staff, to the restaurant. It all ran like clockwork. I had high expectations and Rockpool delivered. Food was well executed, and the staff did a good job explaining the dishes when asked. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this place. I had a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Generally speaking, the food quality and preparation was excellent. The only negatives we had were the wine list is quite pricey and the kitchen was a bit heavy handed on the mains and sides with lots of salt.

About Rockpool Bar & Grill

Parry with Perry Neil Perry has been king of the Sydney food scene for decades – and Rockpool Bar & Grill showcases all the reasons why. This chic eatery has all right elements to create the perfect dining experience. First of all, there is the food. Perry has been outspoken about his passion for fresh, quality produce and the menu at Rockpool Bar & Grill is a testament to this. Every item – from the Reuben sandwich on the bar menu to the Tasmanian Spiny Lobster Thermidor on the main menu – is made from the best ingredients the chefs could get their hands on, and you can tell. But coming here is not just about the food. The service is oh-so-smooth and the venue is spectacular, located in a glorious art deco building, so coming here makes you feel truly special. Also, we love the list of house rules at the beginning of the bar menu, which reminds diners to behave themselves (eg “Leave your attitude with your hat at the door”). It is a bit of a throwback to an earlier, better-mannered era, and we are certainly not complaining. Best Dish: David Blackmore’s Full Blood Wagyu Hamburger with Bacon, Gruyere Cheese and Zuni Pickle
