About Garden Court Restaurant

The Garden Court Restaurant offers an elegant dining experience in a unique environment. Reopened with a blend of European interior styles within and a Greek motif in the outside courtyard – the restaurant is an oasis in the bustling central business district of Sydney.

With an emphasis on earthy colours and warm tones bathed in natural light, the restaurant reflects the vibrant, energetic nature of the city.

The Garden Court offers an inviting, bright conservatory feel with clean lines, elegant decor, and an exclusive Private dining room behind rich drapery. Matched with an open kitchen – so you can watch the theatre of French gastronomic excellence unfold before you.

Circular forms, lush foliage and curved lines will bring the lush Garden surroundings into your dining experience and create a light, bright and fashionable area for any occasion.

Friendly service, good and well presented food (although my wife's lamb was a bit fatty), good value (with the Accor card) and quick.

We have dined here previously and had a positive experience however we made the mistake of returning here for a weekend dinner. The restaurant was very understaffed, the “general manager” delegating tasks rather than pitching in and helping to serve the backlog of customers. Booking details were lost, meal orders were incorrect, drinks orders not taken until prompted, bills incorrect, and cutlery not replaced between courses. The food was ok though. We overheard a number of other tables chasing up on their meals and querying bills. Staff also became argumentative with diners and each other. The Garden Court has the potential to be the 5 star dining experience it is supposed to be, but the overall offering fell way short this time. Perhaps we were unlucky but we are not going to risk a repeat experience here.

We are regulars at the Sofitel Garden Court Restaurant. This evening there were seven of us dining as a family get together. The food was excellent and Audrey the manager and staff really looked after us. There was also a little surprise for all of us too which was very much appreciated...and it was delicious! Well done Sofitel!

This was an okay restaurant but not a stand out - thought it was a bit pricey for what we had but as we were on the Accor club discount it made it acceptable.

The food was great! The service was poor due to understaffing (not the fault of the staff). We had trouble getting the bill! The prices are expensive for what was served especially as the steak did NOT come with potatoes or vegetables. It's unacceptable that we have to BUY side servings of potatoes and vegetables. We have patronised your restaurant for years but shall be reluctant to return.

The look and feel of the restaurant is warm and welcoming. We had breakfast there 2 mornings. You couldn't find breakfast any better. The omelette made to order was awesome. We had a nice romantic dinner there as well which I personally congratulated the chefs for a superb meal. Can't go past the Garden Court Restaurant when in the city.

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner, service was outstanding & meal superb! Loved the Brussel sprouts by recommendation. It was a great experience to have pre drinks at Club and then stay in the comfort of the hotel by dining in their restaurant.

We had made a booking as Vivid was on, but apon arrival we had to wait 20 mins in a queue then be told we still had to wait another 20 mins for a table! It didn’t get any better as from ordering our food to actually getting it was a 1 hour wait!!! Cannot fault the food which was excellent. I have been here many times to eat as it’s a great place to go with a group but it will be a while before I come back

The Shoulder of Lamb was excellent. At $105 it is not cheap, but shared between 3 people is excellent value. We will come back again just to have this dish.

Charming restaurant in the CBD. Came for dinner but must be quite nice for lunch too. The tenderloin turned out to be a good choice. Starters were generous portions and there is a good selection of breads.
