    We got there on time and yet our table was still 30 mins late, i think this is a tactic to get you to go to the bar. The food lacked flavour and my steak was diced when it came to me, i never asked for it to be cut, i wanted to do that myself.

    Great staff, not pretentious, friendly and helpful. Loved the food. We ordered way too much but then they offered for us to take home.

    Excellent food - each dish was a winner! We had the crudo, sauteed prawns, john dory, lamb and hanger steak, with Sebago potatoes and side salad. Would recommend every dish. As we exceeded our two hour seating limit, we had our desserts in the bar section which was fine. The rhubarb and strawberry pudding was to die for.

    First time at Rockpool Bar & Grill. As expected high class service, great good and wine selection. Was able to trust the waiter to recommend a good wine to accompany with my dry aged steak. Would come again.

    Rockpool is a fine dining institution easy to overlook with the plethora of options in Sydney Glad we visited. The service is simply impeccable and the setting fitting for any special celebration. We really enjoyed our meal, especially the dry aged cape grim t-bone steak with the sides.

    A very slick steak and fish restaurant. The dark timber and marble interiors set the mood. Good bar for pre-dinner drinks. Efficient, professional service. Excellent selection of steaks and fish.

    We loved Rockpool from the moment we walked in. What a stunning building! The food was delish and the sommelier was just gorgeous - helped us find the perfect food and wine for a special night out. Can't wait to go again.

    Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and how we could maximise our experience with suggestions of our dining options. Her suggestion was spot on. The food was delicious! We will definitely revisit.

    RBG has to be the best restaurant room in Australia, with an ambience to match. The front of house crew and the floor staff make every possible effort to ensure ones night is a total pleasure. The quality of the food is absolutely 100/100. The wines and sommeliers never disappoint, knowing just the right wine and matching them to the individual taste and budget. At some point I will explore the deserts but every time we’ve been there we are completely satiated after entrees and mains. I have no doubt the deserts would be great. All in all for us RBG is our favourite ‘canteen’, there’s not enough hats or stars to do it justice .

    Way too busy and not enough staff. Food was great but service was too slow. Staff tried hard but not enough staff working. Disappointing.

    Had always wanted to try Rockpool and glad we did. The food was great and the service was good. Not exceptional for either but still very enjoyable.

About the restaurant

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
