    Amazing steak, seafood stew, and really friendly service - highly recommend! Took 1 star off for service as it was very slow at times - took ages to catch a waiter’s eye even when it wasn’t that busy, but nevertheless they had a wonderful attitude and that’s what’s important.

    Exceptionally delicious food, amazing ambiance and the most wonderful service. The debate potatoes are always a winner and the calamari melts in the mouth.

    Lovely place. An evening study in contrasts, though. Food was among the best I’ve had anywhere: Perfectly prepared lamb. Delicious and delicate coral trout. Caprese salad with the best tomatoes I’ve ever tasted. A stunning Pavlova. The service, however: abhorrent. The waiter either didn’t know what he was doing, or didn’t care. When we asked someone - anyone, really - to clear the table, the put-upon associate first passive-aggressively adjusted the flatware on our plates to be in the “I’m finished” placement,” then proceeded to remove the plates! Such a disappointing experience. Even with food prepared with such obvious care and skill, we left frustrated and angry with the ridiculously poor level of staff engagement.

    Amazing food and service. Every menu item came out as expected and beautifully presented. Steaks cooked to perfection. Excellent wine and extra dessert recommendation.

    Omg the best ever!! The service and our waitress was beyond words, We had a gift card we thought had $150 on it. But actually was loaded with another $500 bucks. So the matre de came running down the street to alert us of this. The honesty was remarkable. I hope Neil reads this . Good job team. Meal of the night was the bone marrow, bravo chefs . All meals and atmosphere was perfect. ????‍????????‍????????‍????????‍????????‍???? P & C Badolato

    We look Rockpool Bar & Grill. We thought we'd get in early for Valentine's Day. Ben, our waiter, was excellent. Great manner, good sense of humour and recommendations about the menu. The food was top shelf as always. The potato and cabbage gratin was extraordinary. My wife particularly enjoyed her lamb cuts. And my steak was great. We drank wine by the glass. My wife's Rose, recommended by Ben, was delightful and I enjoyed a Tempranillo from Rioja. Desserts were very good, perhaps pushed ups over the edge in terms of fullness. We'll always return.

    Really nice setting for a restaurant but it is very expensive for what the food is, at least for a vegetarian. The spanakopita was nice but I couldn't justify the $50 price tag..

    Ugh! What a venue. Love your work, guys! It was so exciting seeing Neil Perry too! Wow! I didn't expect an old boy like himself to still be working the floor but he's still got it! Thanks for a memorable experience :)

    Great staff, very friendly and good atmosphere. Food is pricey but expected. Really yum! Would recommend the scallops and calamari. Along with the steak, the trout was also delicious.

    Fillet was cooked to perfection; trout with aioli was a solid choice. Heirloom tomatoes (after sprinkle of salt and pepper) were fresh and tasty, as the side of carrots. However, gaps in service and absent waitress was mystifying although restaurant packed with Fri night crowd. My wine glass was whisked away just when I wanted a refill Whew. We decided time to go.

    We had a dory fish and a Waguri fillet, which were well cooked and their orientation was excellent. The waiter chose a right wine for me which suited the meat very well. However, after the bill, no one was taking care of us, and I thought that can be something which should be improved in the future. We were just too full so that we couldn’t have dessert but the waiter displayed her disappointment, which is somewhat unprofessional. The avocado tomato salad we ordered was just an average but the dressing was a bit overly used.
