    We loved everything about the Herring Room. We were a group of 7 and the evening went so smoothly. Service was impeccable, setting beautiful and the food was delicious. I can’t wait to go back again and try more of the menu!

    Professional staff. Verry passionate about their dishes. Verry close to 1hat with delecate, well balanced and well presented seafood dishes. Balmain bugs were like butter and truffle gnoki superb. All excellent flavours with a french bubbly. Best in northern beaches we say.

    A little bit of calm close to the vibe of Manly. Wonderful hosts, excellent service & the best seafood on the northern beaches. Great cocktails too!

    I took my wife to dinner at the Herring Room for her Birthday. When making the reservation I mentioned that it was my Wife’s birthday and asked for some special attention. Boy did they impress. From the extremely warm welcome to the exceptional attentiveness we were well looked after. Then came the food...... absolutely Amazing ! The best meal we have had in Sydney hands down. The Espresso Martinis are amazing - a must try if you are partial to an espresso Martini or two. It was our first time to Herring room but definitely not the last.

    Fantastic food and service. Everything we ate was top quality. The pate and bugs were a particular highlight. It’s great they offer BYO as well so you can bring along a special bottle. Can’t wait to return!

    Food was delicious, wait staff were cool, friendly with great suggestions on dishes and quantity. Only negative- we were seated in the outdoor area and seemed to be forgotten for drinks service, lots of long periods with empty glasses. Overall a good experience and would recommend.

    We love this restarant. Angela and Rodney are amazing hosts. The food is world class, innovative and tasty. While you can BYO they have a great wine list. The staff ensure you know all the specials and dessert is the ultimate decadent end to a great night out.

    Great experience, food was superb, every dish we had (all seafood) was excellently flavoured and so different to each other. Topped off by Lychee martinis for dessert ;-) Will definitely be back.

    Four of us were lucky enough to sit in the outside area. The host (owner, I suspect) was fantastic ! Helpful, professional, funny, attentive. Food tasted delicious ! Our host heard my son didn't fancy dessert (which I hoped to share) so I declined. The host brought me this dessert, as a surprise, gratis, and told my son (with great and appreciated humour) to not deny his mother ! Loved every minute of the night. Thank you. Sandra L

    Excellent venue, small spaces with good atmosphere where we sat near the stairs. Some people around us looked cramped. The food was ok, but we were expecting, amazing.

    Service was great, food was really flavorful but the dishes weren’t a great temperature — 1st dish was slightly cold, we mentioned it, and then the next 2 were warmer but still not ideal, last dish was perfect temp. Would definitely return

    Amazing meal. Exquisite food and gorgeous wine and cocktails. Our waiter Sam was fantastic, knowledgeable about the wine menu and dinner menu, extremely helpful with selections and a bubbly breath of fresh air. A must do when visiting Sydney.
