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.
Steaks cooked to perfection kipfler potatoes all good but green salad was lame. Had a wierd taste. My wife was looking forward to a grilled Atlantic salmon but none on the menu
Staff very friendly. Very accommodating and remembered us from last visit. Always nice to be recognised.
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.
It was so good to be served by Claude again, he is the reason we keep coming back to the restaurant each time we are in Sydney.
Food was amazing. One of the best Steaks.
Had a really enjoyable evening - food was great, service excellent - a special time was had by us and our guests.
In Sydney for a family function and we had a very nice dinner and wine in a great location The menu choice was good and the quality of the food was of a high standard The staff were very friendly and helpful Overall it was a great dining experience in a very nice environment with quality service and food
The service was fantastic and the food was very delicious from entree to dessert would recommend highly.
Fantastic evening and dining experience. Attentive wait staff, excellent food and lovely atmosphere. You made our special evening of celebrating my survival of a life threatening health condition even more memorable. We will be back. I love being an accor member as the value for money is sensational. Fully recommend. Thank you Elizabeth.
A very pleasant evening. My dinner partner had to take a photo of her desert!
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!
Claude looked after us with great style and humor. The wine which he recommended complemented our meal perfectly.
Food was lovely the crab & mulloway was amazing. My husband had the 6 course, he enjoyed the first & third but was disappointed with the others. The meat was chewy.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the French waiter topped off the night with his awesome personality. Food was Devine!
Always enjoy dining at Garden Centre Restaurant.
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.
Comfortable, relax I lace. Good services. Delicious food.
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
Beautiful meal and amazing service. The Brussel sprouts are so unique!
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.
